Durham wont say MK Dons because he thinks the club should ditch the connection with Wimbledon. In a way I think he he right, its time to move on. This club is in Milton Keynes and has a whole new young generation of fans who know nothing of the old Wimbledon and want to support their local team. When I take my son to watch the games and dont tell him about Wimbledon and their history, to me MK Dons is a different team. What are the positives in keeping the name and connection to Wimbledon?

:roll:

I agree.
It's more than a decade since Wimbledon began playing home games in Milton Keynes.
It's time to move on.
Let's change our name to reflect our new home in Milton Keynes - something more positive about Milton Keynes itself, that all local residents and the whole new young generations of fans growing up in the city can really identify with.

With more than 174,000 students enrolled, including a significant proportion of new undergraduates aged under 25, the Open University and its 1,000+ academic & research staff and over 2,500 administrative, operational and support staff based at the 48-hectare university campus at Walton Hall in Milton Keynes, is the largest academic institution in the UK by student number, and also one of the world's largest universities.

Let's change our name to Milton Keynes Dons, and properly honour the excellent tutoring provided by Milton Keynes' own Open University dons, and the first class academic institution we have here on our doorstep... :D

From a news perspective, study after study has revealed a consistent right wing bias. It’s s big old place though, so there will be other areas where that’s not true, or where there is a left wing bias.

But we're the studies conducted by left wing bias researchers?

That’s the joy of peer review - it provides a mechanism for people to challenge.

I work at the OU and the football team and the OU are not related in the slightest and they shouldn't be that sounds like clutching at straws

How can you say that,
* Both the establishment of the OU and the Football Team move to Milton Keynes was approved by committee
* People travel from all over the country to attend courses at the OU and to attend matches
* A large proportion of the students have ladybits, and a number of staff at the football club are ladybits (although this has been reduced in recent weeks)

We also have a player called Ousseynou Cisse. If that isn't a connection, I don't know what is.
