Winkelman's club face the League Two side in the FA Cup second round on Sunday, the first time the two teams have met since the London club were relocated 60 miles north to Buckinghamshire in 2003.

The hugely controversial move outraged fans of the club, and Winkelman concedes it was a "crass" decision, but he is pleased with the current state of his League One team.

He told the London Evening Standard: "I don't think I will ever be accepted by AFC.

"I now accept it was probably pretty crass to go and do it the way I did. I wasn't so involved in football that I understood all the nuances.

"My actions over the last eight years, none of them are pariah-like. We run a really good football club."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
