Tenuous Links – The MooCamp Radio Show and Samir Caruthers

Ruby the Don DogIn which we, the overseers of all things related to the Dons, take two seemingly unrelated topics and show you how they are indeed related.

This week, we show you exactly how The MooCamp Radio Show and Samir Caruthers are, indeed,  seamlessly entwined.

  • The MooCamp Radio Show won’t play live this week.
  • Neither will Samir.

I thank you.

Dons - Outside Martin Allen Press Conference It's a Frenzy I tell ya!
It’s a Frenzy I Tell Ya!

This just in… Following Kyle McFadzean’s sending off against Brighton and Hove Albion today for standing still, MK Dons stewards are keen to employ the same tactics employed by the referee. Doris Entwistle, Aisle 19, row Q, has been ejected and banned from the ground as she’s not been seen to have moved for the last two games, at least.

More on this as we get it…

The MooCamp Radio Show 3.07 - Listen Now!
Early Drafts of the Logo Showed Promise

This just in – following last week’s little display at Cheltenham, and we say that because he’s not long in the showers (if you know what I mean) it would appear that MK Dons midfield starlet, Samir Carruthers, has this week suffered a Boardroom injury, which looks to have been very painful in the pocket area, and may keep him out of the game for the near future, or until the fans have forgotten about ‘UrineGate’ at least.

Chants of ‘Same old Samir, taking the p***’ would not have been encouraged at a Family Fun Day. When asked when he’d be back, he replied ‘Probably for Cheltenham, in their league too’.

More on this once we’ve established just how long he’s been banned from Cheltenham for.

Tenuous Links – Ginger Baker and David Martin

The MooCamp Radio Show 2.37 - Listen now!

In which we, the overseers of all things related to the Dons, take two seemingly unrelated topics and show you how they are indeed related.

This week, we show you exactly how Ginger Baker and David Martin are, indeed,  seamlessly entwined.

  • Ginger baker was the periodontally challenged drum maestro from ’70s supergroup Cream
  • Tiramisu is an Italian desert made of cream which literally translates in English to ‘pick me up’
  • Something  that picks you up can be called a hoist or a lift
  • A person who accepts lifts off others is known as a hitchhiker
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was a comedy starring a character named Ford Prefect
  • The Ford Prefect was a car once driven by none other than Prince Edward
  • And….. Edward is the middle name of Dons’ goalkeeping supremo Dave Martin

I thank you.

  • How do people actually come about to support MK Dons? Are they people’s second teams?
  • Yes, that or they are mongs.
  • Melton Keynes is not a new place anymore. They also have been reasonably successful since relocation. It’s good for MK
  • You are a ‘franchise in a fridge’
  • You can have you 30,000 seater,your rich chairman,your stolen club,and your fake fan base, little old @ntfc is priceless #outsold
  • No, you can’t buy class but all those years ago Woolwich Arsenal Franchise FC bought promotion #History
  • you had 3,000 more to MK than your average home attendance. Thank you for funding franchise FC ?
  • If you make this Bolton team look as good as Franchise FC did today you deserve to be relegated. Awful team, and fans.

The owner of the Heel of God

    • The owner of the Heel of God
  • Franchise FC are absolutely awful
  • Its always a good result for football when Franchise FC get beat.
  • Bolton, currently languishing in the fiery depths of dogbleep manage to do enough to stick it to Franchise FC. Bleep them. #AMF
  • Franchise history re-writers note – in 2003 ‘Wimbledon FC’ was already to be ‘MK Dons’. You were never Wimbledon.
  • Wishing you luck deciding who you most want to lose when MK Dons play Chelsea on TV in the next round, the MirrorFootball Top Five
  • mk dons vs afc wimbledon, the football equivalent of sugababes vs mutya keisha siobhan.
  • A trip to Milton Keynes will surely send Diego Costa back to Spain #bleephole #franchisefc
  • Franchise FC vs Chelski in the next round of the #FACup .The worst football fixture in history?
  • mk dons franchise scum.afc Wimbledon real dons always will be?
  • Doesn’t matter you still got beat by a pub team from Kingston you nonce (possibly the most cliché-ridden sentence in Franchise Watch History)
  • MK Dons are a franchise from Wimbledon in the same way (Woolwich) Arsenal are from Woolwich.
  • Arsenal Franchise Club – The Original MK Dons – If the M1 was open in 1913 they’d have moved to Leicester or Northampton, Kent not London
  • A grotesquely manufactured franchise representing all that’s wrong with football versus MK Dons.
  • Lovely bunch of fans they are at MK, unlike those at that franchise club Afc.
  • @TheMooCamp something tells me you don’t have a life

This just in – in preparation for this Saturday’s eagerly awaited ‘Battle of the Baldocks’ at Stadium Colon MK, Dons supremo Andrew ‘call me Andy’ Cullen today announced the latest in his now legendary line of big days out.  Never one to miss an opportunity to get even a single extra bum on one of our many empty seats, Andrew announced that Saturday’s match would be renamed as ‘Baldocks’ Big Day Out’.  Anyone who is able to prove to box office staff that they’re yet another Baldock brother will be entitled to reduced price entry, a free 1/32 scale model of the left ankle of one of the brothers (it doesn’t matter which brother, oddly enough their ankles are identical) and a freshly washed burger.

More on this once we’ve established just what we wash our burgers in.

Who do you want in the next round and why?

 Answers we’ve received so far include:

  • Paul Harris says – “Watford – Luton fans will then be in a dialemma”
  • David Saunders says – “Carlisle away on the Monday night TV game, just to see if all those moaning about ticketing for the Chelsea game on Facebook show what ‘REAL FANS’ they are by selling out the away allocation.”
  • Sean Perry says – “Bletchley Colts. Reckon we could just about pull that one off.”
  • Jane Charlton says “Frankly if the the Dons don’t make an effort on Sunday , half of Milton Keynes will move to Turkey through shear embarrassment . Then it wont matter you they get in the next round or why .”
  • DannyKerr says ” all I want is our next FA Cup game NOT to be in the 1st Round”
