    A "Before they were famous" XI

    There's probably a bit more leeway here... so, players who we "discovered", so to speak. They could be kids through the academy that went on to be big name players, youngsters who blossomed after they left us or just players who were poor/average until they came into their own having...

    Britt Assombalonga!

    Just seen his penalty attempt on TV. It almost went vertical! :hilarious:

    Bets for the new season

    Had a few long shots Had Mooney top scorer in league £10 at 50/1 Had Assombalonga top scorer in Championship £20 at 16/1 Had Chelmsford city to win the league £50 at 10/1 (really fancy that one big takeover has just been approved and they are paying very good wages) Leicester to be relegated...

    Brown's striker record

    It's a given we need a striker, 2 if the budget allows but should we really have much faith that the Tango man can get the right man in? The only decent forwards we've had at the club were the ones Brown inherited when he joined the club: Assombalonga, Tomlin, Reeves & Corr. Even Freddy was...
  5. Rhys Murphy

    I work with a Daggers fan and he's just told me that Peterborough have reportedly agreed a fee with them for Rhys Murphy. He reckons it would probably be around the £400k mark. Worth noting as he'd probably be gone by the time we play them next Tuesday if that's the case. Seems a bit of a...

    Ex Shrimper FA Cup goals Table *07/01/14*

    3rd round and 2 new entrants with Moussa and Tomlin scoring their first. Reeves got a brace and Clarke got his 3rd of the season. Britt scores his 5th and final goal as Kidderminster knocked out Peterborough out of the FA Cup in their 3rd round replay. Can anyone knock him off the top spot...

    Ex Shrimper Goal Scorers League Table *Updated 23/03/14*

    23/03/14 - 5 goals this weekend with 1 new inductee. In the championship George Friend scored his 3rd of the season and Michael Kightly got his 2nd for Burnley. Ben Reeves got his 8th of the campaign and Jack Midson got his 4th with a last minute winner for Wimbeldon. And finally Alan...

    Ex Shrimper Goal Scorers League

    This was a massive favourite of mine and I know a few others enjoyed the great work Magnum did in getting this going. It was mentioned in another thread so I have decided to start it up again. I will start with the top 4 leagues and the conference. Feel free to help me out if I have missed...
  9. Assombalonga and Reeves

    I have heard from an absolutely impeccable source that the club have offered Britt and Ben terms for next season. Both are said to be thinking it over. Incidently, both players have retained their lodgings in the town, at least for the time being.

    Question Where is Ben Reeves

    I have noticed that the last couple of match day squads he hasn't been involved, just wandering if he is injured or Brown has indicated his future lies else where. Even though he is a loan, so is Assombalonga and Lund and they are playing

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v AFC Wimbledon **OFFICIALLY ON!**

    If the match does actually go ahead , what team will we start with ? ................................SMITH.............................. CLOHESSEY.....CRESSWELL.....PROSSER.....STRAKER HURST..........LUND........SPILLANE............MOHSNI...
  12. Eastwood

    Sturrock don't insult Freddie again putting him on in the 90 th minute if you don't like him . Clearly you love Assombalonga who scores regularly of course !
  13. Shrimpergarry

    Striker situation

    Anyone else reckon we might be seeing another striker coming in on loan? With Tomlin out for at least a few weeks, Corr with a history of fragility (both fitness and disciplinary-wise), Assombalonga recently injured, Eastwood unfit and seemingly uninterested, Lavery only an inexperienced kid...

    Britoli Assombalonga

    Now that Watford are out of the F.A.Cup, am I correct in assuming that he will be available to play in the replay at Griffin Park?
  15. WightShrimper

    So he doesn't just write!

    So that's how he gets the inside information! On the official site about tonight's match, we learn: Team News: Tamika Mkandawire and Britt Assombalonga will not be available for selection, while Chris Phillips continues his recovery from injury. Gavin Tomlin will also have a late fitness test...

    Assombalonga for longa?

    With Watford doing well at the moment, what are the chances they will be happy to leave Britt with us for a bit longer? It would seem unlikely he would get in the team at the moment (unless someone gets injured) and all the while he is with us he is growing in experience and confidence; a...

  18. Question Britt Assombalonga

    Hi guys, I write a blog on Watford (www.inthewolfsmouth.com) and am writing an update on how all of our loanees are doing. Obviously, Britt's had quite a good run of goals, as he had everywhere he's gone on loan, but I was wondering what you all think of him as a player. In his few first team...

    Adam Barrett V Britt Assombalonga gagagag

    So, Tuesday night pairs together one of our (favourite ?) old boys, against our latest loanee goal getter. Adam, has had good reviews for Gills, and they have had a great start to the season, curently unbeaten at home and top of the league. Britt has 4 goals in 5 starts for us, and I...
