Friday, 31st August 2018
by Preview Percy
''We'll be honest, we didn't think Preview Percy would survive 90 minutes of standing on a terrace at AFC Wimbledon the other night. Fair play to the old so and so he managed to muddle through even if he has spent the whole of the following three days moaning about the state of his knees.
