I've been following AFC Wimbledon for several years now - sorry to see him leave The Real Dons, especially given his contribution to yet another late-season great-escape act from the London club, but if he's given the right sort of service, Joe Pigott will certainly prove to be an absolutely smashing signing.
A very intelligent footballer, decent from set pieces and a hard worker to boot. Excellent news!
His club's name sounds like it should be his own name and his own name sounds like it might get read out during the classifieds at 4.45 on a Saturday afternoon.
And he joined Barry in 2007 (aged 10 going on 11 if he's 22 now) and switched from midfield to right-back. That's fair enough for one day but on other days wouldn't he have to play between the jumpers as a sticky-keeper and other days when he was the one with the longest pants he'd have to be the lad who fetches the ball when it gets kicked into the nettles?
Looking over his career statistics, he's done rather well but seems to be a bit of a nearly-man.
On that basis I look forward to seeing Ipswich Town FC finishing as runners up in the Premier League in a couple of short years from now, second only on goal-difference to Manchester City having played them at the Etihad Stadium on the last day, beating them 4-0 but having needed a 5-0 win to have secured top spot.
Best of luck to Paul & Chris, and all those who play for them!
Update: Late unconfirmed reports are suggesting that the tie will be played simultaneously both home and away. Whoever wins on aggregate qualifies.
If it's a draw then there will be a trolley-race between the tea-ladies of the opposing teams across their own home grounds, winner takes it all (order your tea early as there mightn't be much left in the pot after the 90-yard dash).
If the two sides still can't be separated then the team with the least number of letters in their name goes through two rounds automatically and the longer-named team becomes a yellow ball in the shape of the inside of a kinder-egg in the draw for the next round. The significance of the yellow ball-egg will be clarified a couple of hours after the draw for the next round is made.
I think that's right now unless we hear otherwise.
Agree with those saying there was nothing controversial about the penalty that Knudsen conceded. It was stupid and reckless play by him, and he should be fined and dropped for costing us a point, however deserved or undeserved that point would have been. The ref made it very clear he wasn't taking any bull. So keep your hands off the attacker, "Knuddy", and play within the rules!
