Karl Robinson: AFC clash will have added spice

The League Two side replaced the original Wimbledon before relocating to Milton Keynes in 2003 and many AFC fans plan to boycott the match in protest.

However, Robinson feels there should not be an issue anymore and he will approach the game as normal.

He said: "The days since the birth of this football club and the issues surrounding it are in the past and I honestly feel that it shouldn't be an issue for either club now, but it will add a little spice to the occasion.

"Winning football matches can generate momentum and we will approach every game, in every competition, with a lot of respect so that we can aim to progress as far as possible."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
