  3. Continuing the theme from the previous post, John talks about why made up stories can matter. It only took him 95 episodes to hit on why we love this fictional football team. (Or, you know, anything else.) Meanwhile, the Swoodilypoopers face off against Villareal in the Europa League.

    In Episode 11 of Unnecessary Tackle-Cast, James and Mel discuss experimenting with positions (context is everything), grammar, summer jobs, shorts, beards, trade conflicts in history, #QuincyTime, and the eternal yearning for stroopwafels.

    James made an error during the recording. The 2014-15 season is AFC Wimbledon’s fourth in the Football League, not third.

  5. The Swoodilypoopers bulldozed their way to a 5-1 rout of Ipswich Town (despite Fat Lucas’ inexorable decline in form) on a dreary, wet afternoon in the Championship. (Oh yeah, and in a stunning turn of events, etc.) This episode was notable primarily for John’s treatise on how football is like life.

  8. The news that Bald John Green would miss much of his sophomore season with the Swoodilypoopers due to injury was devastating for the team. But out of this setback came a watershed moment in English football. The news that Bald John Green and Other John Green were not only gay but in a committed partnership with each other set the backpages on fire. In the wake of the revelations, the team and the supporters rallied around the Johns Green, showing nothing but support and acceptance.

    Bald John Green. Other John Green. Teammates in Life and in Love.

  11. Yesterday we posted the first two episodes of The Miracle Of Swindon Town, marking the first appearances of Bald John Green and Other John Green. But this game was the first time we got to really know who the Swoodilypoopers were.

    Somehow, lowly Swindon Town found themselves at Wembley Stadium, where they faced off against the perennial juggernauts Manchester United for the oldest prize in football- the FA Cup. The Red Devils showed no mercy, unleashing their full fury on their lower league opponents. But the Swoodilypoopers, whether through luck or the kind of superhuman focus that only existential terror can bring, held on through 90 minutes and ground out a goalless draw to force extra time. Feeling like maybe today was their day, and the impossible could still happen in football, Bald John Green and Other John Green surged forward in search of a goal. Just one. They only needed one.

    But it never came. And in the 99th minute, Michael Carrick put a low shot past Fat Lucas to give Manchester United a 1-0 lead- and, ultimately, the Cup.

    The loss was heartbreaking- for the players, for the manager, and for the fans. But that loss gave the team an identity. The Swoodilypoopers would find glory in later seasons and the made their inexorable march to the summit of English football. But in that moment of singular heartbreak, the team- and the fans- found out who they were.

    The first goal of the season!

     
  15. Our first entry for Swoodilypooper Throwback Week goes alllllll the way back to the beginning. The Swoodilypoopers, still very much in their larval stage, host a preseason friendly against Polish powerhouse KS Chuggington Ruch Chorzów.

    Also of interest is Episode 2, the team’s first competitive match (against, ironically, Milton Keynes ****). The episode also marks the first appearance of Other John Green.
