MK Dons 3 v Charlton Athletic 1 (aet)

Forget Brighton, we've ended our participation in this season's Cup competitions and can concentrate on securing our League One berth for next season.

Karl Robinson put a very positive spon on things once again - he really does see the best in everything - although those there were somewhat less overwhelmed. We did field a younger side but not sure everyone will necessarily remember this one for the rest of their lives....

Good enough to hold the draw after 90 minutes we capitulated on the opening period of extra time and that man Bowditch killed us off with the third.

Meanwhile, Roly looks like he may get at least £11m for Lookman in the January sales...

If we are to get anything close to £11m for a player currently plying his trade in League 1, it would be great business for the club. Even when we were in our strongest bargaining position ever in the clubs history in January 2004, we could not prevent Scott Parker going to Chelsea for £10m. We have become accustomed to selling our best players over the years and it is about getting the best possible financial deal for the club.

The sad fact is that it may encourage Duchatelet to continue running us as a smaller business in League One when he can cover his operating losses and make a profit by selling a starlet every now and again. Great business model if you have zero interest in the footballing side of the club.
