Take a deep breath and count to ten

Dons v Charlton

“May you live in interesting times” (Chinese proverb) It’s been an interesting ride so far hasn’t it?  Life as a supporter of the Milton Keynes Dons very rarely offers much in the way of mid-table obscurity, or anything that could be described as being even remotely run of the mill. This might go on a … Read more

All I Want Is A Team Of Lewingtons

If you include the caretakers, we’ve had ten managers since the Dons moved to Milton Keynes in 2003.  With the possible exception of Winkie’s fashion sense, there has been just one consistent feature throughout all of those managers tenure, and that is Dean Lewington.  In an age where the idea of a one-club player is … Read more

The Trip to Kingston

Just a couple of points from me in the run up to the trip to Kingston. First of all, while I completely understand the many reasons why a lot of our usual away travellers will be giving this one a miss, I’d urge you to think again.  Not going to a match is a difficult … Read more

It’s Armitage Shanks Memorial Clock Time Once Again

Armitage Shanks Memorial Clock

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?  It’s been a while since we had a visit from the Kingston lot, as you can see from the clock above.  It should be pointed out that the clock wasn’t reset after their last visit, as apparently the handful they bought with them for the JPT match were … Read more

Thanks For Everything Robbo!

Robbo - one of us

Though I was hoping that he’d be given more time to turn the current run of results around, it wasn’t to be, and as of this afternoon, Robbo has left the club.  There’ll be lots of opportunities to look forward, and talk about what happens next, but for now I just want to take a few minutes to … Read more

Making Your Mind Up – What Do You Really Want?

Make Your Mind Up - What Do You Want?

What do you want from your football club?  Serious question, and one that we all need to be asking ourselves right now, because a selection of our fanbase are currently in danger of forcing Winkie into a decision that we would come to regret in years to come. There’s been a minority of fans calling for Robbo’s head … Read more

Brando’s Blog – End of Season Review – 2015/16

Robbo - one of us

Well that wraps it up for 2015/16 then.  Quite a season really. It was a season that started with a degree of hope, a sense of belief, built on last season’s general wonderfulness, and a feeling that, unless something truly awful happened, we would probably be alright.  It all started so well too – that beautiful … Read more

Brando’s Blog – Family Fun Day – Give us your Foobing Money – 18/03/2016

It’s Family Fun day tomorrow at Stadium Colon MK, and you have the opportunity to stand in the presence of greatness.  Our very own Bootsie and Radar – the two mad Dons fans who will be kayaking to the Fulham game to raise vital funds for Willen Hospice – will be there, in the flesh, looking remarkably sexy. You … Read more

Brando’s Blog – Win, Lose or Draw – Enjoy Every Minute – 31/01/2016

My beloved Dons fans, today is a glorious day. The visit of Chelsea this afternoon means that our stadium will be full for a football match for the first time since that glorious night 16 months ago against Manchester United.  On that occasion, a plucky team who were hoping to push for promotion from League 1 showed the … Read more

Brando’s Blog – For what we are about to receive – 02/05/2015

My beloved Dons fans, When we talk of famous matches in our history, we talk of ‘that’ Tranmere match, securing promotion at Stockport and winning the league at Bradford. We talk of winning the JPT at Wembley, drawing at Wycombe with nine men, beating Leeds at home and we talk of the first Kingston match and … Read more
