Kev Stewart, yep its a real shame he cant stay fit. Interesting comment from Robertson at Liverpool and their famous lactate test that Milner always wins, even this year. Seems nowt wrong with Stewarts core fitness just keeps breaking down with knocks.

I wonder if part of the problem might be he's too fit, that he trains too hard and that's what's making him so delicate, a lot of the elite track and field athletes seem to have the same problem.

Very good point Wizaard. A lot of posters on here haven’t a clue about recruiting players or what it entails…
And Sonny Carey came from Kings Lynn and he’s never looked out of depth playing for the Mighty and if he didn’t get injured on Boxing Day who knows where we would have finished. I’m expecting big things from SC this season as he’s a very good AMF!

I sincerely hope not. Strictly Division 1!
And your qualifications to determine that are ? And if you’re not a coach / scout then I’m assuming you’ve watched AFC Wimbledon regularly over the last few seasons… and that’s what you base your decision on ?
Or are you just assuming a League 1 player isn’t good enough to step up… it’s just pretty much every single player in our squad last season was a League 1 player or lower the season before and we did pretty well.

Yes I have seen have seen him several times in the flesh, including at Fleetwood towards the end of last season. He is a trier, I'll give him that, but with no class. There were 4 Wimbledon players that day that stood out and he was not one of them. He is not what we need. We have plenty of defensive midfielders in our squad already, what we need is more creativity!

Under contract until next summer and unlikely to be cheap, get Rogers in for this season and try to pick him up on a free next summer?
Would be happy with that too. If we still have MA next summer that will mean it has been another successful season for us.

Signed for the mighty Mansfield Town. Who are going places but still they’re in League 2.

Thank god we held a little longer some some quality players. Even if they’re on loan.

Think so. One year temps from a higher level until the first 16 contracts finish, including those they don't want to keep but can't move and still need paying, looks like the most cost effective option that has been decided on.

Mansfield paid the compo but haven't said how much. Can't imagine a fortune though. One ticked off the list.

Loans seem to be Appleton's specialism so that must have influenced the decision.

hard to imagine how we would be interested in a player who has signed for a L2 team from what was a L1 team last season.
