I currently am a season ticker holder at MK Dons. I appreciate that quite a few of you will hate this club but I was wondering, as I will be moving away, how much do you miss going to see your local team when you go to Uni, because I can't think what it'll be like to not be going to the game every saturday

How far from MK are you moving? Might be possible to get to the odd home game still?

I was a season ticket holder at Palace before I went to uni in Notts. It was too far to travel down for home games regularly, but I went to all the away games within a 90 minute train trip. It made for a nice change of scene - got to see lots of new away grounds and be part of the regular travelling support.

Out of interest, were you one of the old Wimbledon supporters who moved with the club, or did you start supporting them post-move? Must admit, I don't like what MK Dons are built on, but I find it an interesting club.

Hopefully Huddersfield, and second choice is Sunderland, so quite some way. I will be able to go to some away games (especially if I'm in Huddersfield) but home games will become a rarity I should think. Just wondering how hard it is, I know i'll miss it, but I'd assume it'll get easier, especially with plenty going on at Uni.
I live in Leighton Buzzard (dont know if you heard of it) but Dons are my local side. Most people don't know the facts and jump on the bandwagon of hating us tbh but from the outside I can see why fans dont like us. But we are doing alot of good!

Just support the team that's in your university town, you franchise fans are good at changing clubs.

I support my local team, just like other football fans do.

I didn't, I was brought up in a family of Manchester United fans (got a feeling this won't help my case haha) but my first game was still a Dons game. I was 8 when the move happened. I was much more interested in playing football than watching football, and I wouldn't have been able to get to games and afford them anyway.
