Sports Letter: Dons Wronged

The Independent Online
Sir: J Saunders (Letters, 10 Aug) chooses to remember Wimbledon as "a cynical team who muscled their way to the top". Harry Bassett's long ball tactics brought the Dons record amounts of goals and three promotions in four years, and Wimbledon played the beautiful game under Ray Harford and still finished in the top 10. They were crticised by Joe Kinnear for playing "too much football."

The letter's last point is laughable. To blame England's recent failures on Wimbledon beggars belief. What's the betting that while Mr Saunders sits at home raging over "the hand of God", that Chris Perry slips into the England side?
