MK Dons shameful crowd, but they play good stuff in a style similar to ours 18:53 - May 8 with 3063 viewsunstableblue

First off a shameful 13,000, my work colleague was able to buy a ticket on Friday afternoon!

But they do play good football. And are similar to us in many ways. Interesting they play Twine who’s more akin to Celina/Chaplin as the central single striker (although he come deep a lot) and then parrot and another to the side who are more physical

I should add that MK have split the 2000 Wycombe fans in two to break up their support! I’m the upper tier.

I do think MK have finished higher because they are more dynamic, get more bodies in the box, break the lines, and in twine, parrot and boateng more effective attacking players.

They’re actually playing a 5-4-1 with parrot wider

Wycombe and Stockdale just casually doing an American-sports style time out with Stockdale going down for 4-5 mins to give his team time to regroup and have a mini team talk

That is sthousery at mastery level

As we have seen Wigan and Sunderland do at PR this season. They have picked up a bit since then.

It takes a couple of generations to build up support - in around twenty years time they’d average a lot more support. Probably.

Feel like every team does this now. Virtually impossible for the authorities to do anything too.

They could change the rules to stop the clock but get rid of added on time. But then before you know it we’d have time outs and some American pop has been performing a concert for half an hour at half time!

"Timeout" fake injuries break the opposition's momentum, calm your team down and give the manager the opportunity to impart tactical instructions. The damage is done whether or not you get the game time back.

A curiously flat play-off tie really, especially given MK got a goal back early on. Partly down to Wycombe largely keeping them away from the goal but the lack of a crowd in such a big stadium is surely a factor.

Tomorrow’s match should be rather different.

I thought it was a good watch, a team playing good football and a team throwing everything bodies and blocks in the way to stop them.

Manning is clearly a very good coach and if he can keep some of his talent, they’ll be a force next season. Twine will go no doubt… albeit he had a bit of an ineffective game.

I know I shouldn't like MK Dons because of what they did to Wimbledon but I would have preferred they went up because (a) they finished third, (b) they play decent football, (c) they don't appear to engage in sh!thousery, and (d) they have a manager with an Ipswich connection.

Yes, it was entertaining but just lacked a bit of the frisson that makes play-off ties. It never really looked like MK would score again for the most part, although they did up the tempo in the last few minutes.

Not sure I'd feel any happier about conceding with 10 men because Wes Burns is off the pitch clutching his ankle than I do watching Rotherham take 74 seconds for a throw in because they're 1 nil up.

Aidy Boothroyd used to describe it as 'managing the game'.

It's very very cynical, Wycombe are total sh1thouses

Mick McCarthy for all his faults, didn't employ these kind of tactics, his teams were hard but fair

Finishing 3rd and not going up is what we are very good at doing sadly

Where as you can get a club who are crap for years, have one good season, go up and then spend the next 5 years in the Premier League



Someone earlier said Norwich keep rolling double sixes with their yoyoing, I'd suggest they have been doing it ever since Lambert took over

We have been rolling double 1's really since Premier League relegation

I don't think anyone can deny MK Dons have a far better stadium that Wycombe.

In terms of which ground I'd rather visit, has the best character or makes for the best away day, that's different.
