    Just because really... I have always hated what they did. Although to be honest there are plenty of things to hate about modern football.

    What is the most hated and despised team in English football and why?

    While there are always inter-club rivalries, for most neutrals the club they hate apart from their local rivals will probably be Milton Keynes Dons, AKA “Franchise FC”.

    Its about 20 years since the new owners of the then Wimbledon club somehow persuaded the FA to allow them to move the team to another part of the country, in defiance of the spirit (if not the letter) of the FA’s rules, thus by-passing any need for this new club (which is what in effect it was) to fight its way through the non-leagues like every other club has had to. In the process the move put out of business a non-league with nearly 100 years of history.

    The new owners then changed the name of the team, having told the FA they would not do so, while the FA tried to stop Wimbledon fans from setting up their own team - AFC Wimbledon.

    AFC Wimbledon was formed, and worked its way through the leagues in exactly the way that Milton Keynes said was not possible, to the point when they were for a period higher ranked than Milton Keynes. When the two teams eventually met in a league game Wimbledon refused to publish the name of Milton Keynes anywhere in the programme for the match.

    He tried to square that header but went in, similar to Hojberg yesterday but Hojberg fudged it right up.

    If Hojberg had tried to score he might have successfully squared the header!

    Personally am over the moon that wimbledon ceased to exist as a club. Disgusting team that ruined gary stevens career and almost blinded gary mabbutt.

    Definitely think a loan is the most likely to happen.

    May be given a chance to show what he can do in preseason training and games?

    But even if he does really well it's a big step up to cover for Kane and minutes will be hard to come by.

    I doubt he thinks he is ready yet himself.

    The urgency of that succession plan unexpectedly intensified soon after when Spurs lost Kane and Son to injuries at the start of 2020. It was an extraordinary situation looking back, as Mourinho was forced to answer questions at pretty much every press conference about why he was resisting playing Parrott, who had only just turned 18 and who Spurs had planned to loan out to Charlton Athletic. On one occasion, Mourinho even said that most Spurs fans, despite their demands for Parrott’s inclusion, didn’t even know what the Irishman looked like.

    Did Parrott himself believe the hype? Or at least those who were saying he should be getting first-team minutes? “Yeah, that is what happened,” he says. “At times, you believe it, but there are also times when you need to have your eyes open and see how far away you are from what the team needs. Physically, I was nowhere near strong enough to play at that level.

    “I understand now why I wasn’t playing. I was still a kid — I’m still a kid now, but I’ve learned a bit. If I had the mindset I have now back then I might have got more minutes than I did. But no there’s no thought about that anymore — it’s gone, in the past. When I look back at the player I was then compared to where I am now, I’ve grown so much.”​

    Bit more on his transfer value

    Wonder whether, if Richarlison comes in and perhaps Eriksen too such that we very between 3-4-3 and 3-5-2, we'd decide to no loan Parrott out and keep him as our 5th forward? (or 6th if Moura stays...I'm assumine Stevie B is off)

    He played well, a few good forward runs and was comfortable defensively. Some very good performances from the younger Ireland players, lots of energy. Saying that, Scotland were very poor so it's hard to say how much was down to that.

    From what I’ve seen of Collins he looks a good prospect. I’d expect him to move during the summer.
