View Full Version : Wimbledon postponed
24-09-2000, 01:23 AM
Is anyone as fed up as I am (despite today's game) at the postponement of the game on 8 October? Apparently it's due to 'international call-ups'. Who are these international megastars who play at Selhurst Park that are all playing for their countries? If clubs lose their foreign players to international commitments I say tough - that's just part and parcel of signing foreign players (which, incidently, I have no problem with). As for the British players, are we seriously postponing a game so we don't miss the delights of John Hartson?
Clubs and the Football League should think a bit more about their supporters - I've got six kids in my party who were looking forward to this game who now won't be able to go because it will be in mid-week. I don't suppose there will be a refund on the season tickets will there?

We have Kolinko, Zhiyi, Carlisle, and Hunt away on International Duty and i think Wimbledon have 4 away aswell.

Kolinko is the reserve goalkeeper and yesterday was, I believe, the first time we had one on the bench. Fan wasn't going to be available anyway. Carlisle and Hunt aren't first team players. And anyway, if we've both lost four players it the same for both sides.

Would not Ruddock be banned for this match? On balance it is probably to our advantage to have this match postponed.
Must admit I am disapointed about it as well. what a weekends football that could have been. England v Germany and the game I have been looking forward to most against the Dons.
However on the bright side it will now probably be played under lights with an evening game atmosphere. (As long as it is not rescheduled in the week leading up to Christmas as seems to be usuall with our cancellations at this time of year)

I'm right cheesed off by this. It's one of the games I've been looking forward to most. It'll be played mid week no doubt which means that despite having a season ticket I'll miss out 'cos I live in Wales and cannot get up after work (obviously!)

Is Forsell not in action for Finland that weekend?

Well it's annoyed me.
I would have much rather had it on a Sunday than have to play another midweek match.
