Fair comment. I am mostly glass half empty when it comes to this shambles but maybe I am being glass half full thinking JC has picked up a few gems.

Lets be honest, some of the players that have gone were hopeless in particular Meadows. Didn't rate Davis or Ogden, and as I say other than Miski, Hankinson and Boafa (and possibly Richards) no great losses. If we can retain Sammut and Walters that would be bit more experience.

That all said, I remain a fan, but not a supporter any longer so my views are pretty irrelevant !

I agree that Coleman will likely have picked up a few decent players and we seem to have gone for size which I think we lacked a bit of recently but I don’t think it’s realistic to expect all of these L1 players to operate at top half of Champ level so I think we are a lesser team. Also (1) we are no longer on 4g which I think was an asset to us as we were familiar with it (2) the team is completely new and as they are part time have less time to get fluent (3):we have an even smaller squad - last year we had too few meaning some of the squad players played more frequently than was optimal (4) other teams have strengthened. (5) I’m unclear who our flair players are now and our speed merchants. Do we have any?
As you say it was probably time to roll the dice on a few players but looking at the pre season 1st session photo I can’t see Sammut or Walters there (or Williams or Hindmarsh or Egodo for that matter). So I think they may have gone as well which I think is a loss. I think Fozzard going was a loss as well as he seemed to do well most weeks. I looked at fixture list and it took me a while to find a home game I thought we might win ...all looks a bit dodgy and that’s before the endless journey around the North Circ and then into South London which will be no picnic of a Sunday lunchtime.
I keep thinking about the press release announcing Coleman which talked about developing a culture and a London identity. It seems to me we have lost pretty much all our recent team, hired very few London players and are majoring on Antipodeans which does not feel quite in line with those bold promises.

Have you got a way of getting to a Thameslink station in North London?
Could save yourself a pig of a drive by getting a train to Haydons Road , which is about 10 minutes walk to the stadium.
Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number--
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you--
Ye are many -- they are few.'

Nope. A number of options. All sh*t. About 3 changes and journey time on 1 and a half hours. No wonder I’m not keen on move to Wimbledon.

Yea for us a 20 min drive to Ealing has been replaced by almost 90 mins on trains and bus (including walk from bus stop to ground). Cost of parking and petrol to ealing 10gbp, cost for 2 people + 1 over 65 travelcard from Egham about 60GBP. So until we hear we can park close to PL, we won't be attending

To be fair to the club, they are aware of the parking issue, so I expect they will have something worked out when they release the season tickets

I simply don’t know South West London but it sounds like parking is a problem. After a long drive no one wants to spend ages looking for somewhere to park. It’s too far away to do a test drive so I’ll just have to give it a go and see how the land lies.
I note we have one Friday evening home game - getting to that’s going to be interesting.

Trouble is wherever we move to there's always going to be issues.
So unless the club can sort some sort of local parking deal out, at least for ST holders, members - face it we won't have that many - it will make life very difficult for some people.
And i can confirm from a colleague who lives nearby that there is very little available in the way of street parking near PL.
Hence my method of travel is most likely to be train from Kent into town, train out to Haydons Rd.

Just a thought, anyone know what Dons fans do for parking?

I to live in Kent but a bit further out. It will be train for us too. Two changes and an hour and twenty minutes or so. Not so bad. My concern is engineering works.
My grandson loves trains, so he will enjoy it.
Luckily we all have rail cards.
