    Hope they relocate to Mars.

    This is one occasion where I don't give a **** about the bigger picture.

    Sounds very corrupt to me, I hope that it all falls through.

    Not that I have any great sympathy with Millwall and its fans, but it could be the thin end of a wedge that could drive many clubs out of their communities.

    You're right, it is very corrupt.

    This has been rumbling on for a few years and the piece of land the Den is on must have increased in value massively as Bermondsey has gentrified and the works at London Bridge have attracted more businesses and homes to the area.

    It started off as a sports village scheme with the football club at the heart of it. Then as time has gone on, the village and the club have been ignored with more high rise living incorporated.

    Millwall publicly appealed plans, put forward their own plans but were blocked. This is pretty much last chance saloon next week.

    I've no love at all for Millwall, but I don't want any club to be evicted from their home in such a manner. A very dangerous precedent.

    I'll be honest and tell you how I feel. I don't give a fcuk. If they got banned from football for life I wouldn't bat an eyelid. Fcuk Millwall. Their owners, their manager, their fans. I saw everything I needed to see at Wembley. Despise them more than any other Club in world football.

    I know how I feel

    Despite the fact I have an intense dislike of Millwall FC and a sizeable minority of their fans are thugs who should never be allowed near a football ground again this whole thing stinks. Its bad for the Lewisham residents whether or not they are connected to the club and its bad for the genine millwall fans and all those helped by its community initiatives

    Whether or not a football club is affected the whole thing is just wrong and corrupt

    Long live corruption if it puts them out of existence.

    I'd happily chuck £50 into a fund to help the council bring about Milllwall's death.

    If more corruption could help kill Sheff Utd and Cardiff, that'd be the big three gone.

    To me it looks like the whole deal stinks, reading that you can't help but think the thing is bent, I have no love for Millwall at all but as others say if councils are allowed to start chucking out community based football clubs ( like them or loathe them they are) where might it end up for others?

    It's awful. So are they, but if this goes through it could end up causing massive problems for loads of teams. It's a different type of shitty corruption, but this and what's happening at Blackpool are similar. You can't have sympathy for Blackpool and say you don't care about this just because Millwall fans are idiots/violent.

    All these clubs we traditionally 'hate' for whatever reasons have, at their core, a decent bunch of genuine supporters who just follow their team. Even bloody Leeds!! But the exception is Millwall. Even their 'decent' supporters, who might not get involved in scenes like we witnessed at Wembley, will happily turn a blind eye to it and join in that 'no-one likes us' siege mentality that allows such behaviour to go unchallenged.

    Fcuk them all. Every single fan or individual who has chosen to attach themselves to that pisshole of a club. Moving to Kent isn't good enough for me.....I'd happily see them go out of business entirely.

    It's Millwall... no one likes them... and they don't care (apparently)

    so... it's a 'bye bye and good riddance' from me (if you can somehow take Cardiff and Birmingham City with you then the world will be a better place)

    And other fans from other clubs would also have a selection of rivals they would happily let disappear.

    No wonder FIFA,UEFA,FA and any speculative buisness person laugh when fans complain about being ripped off.
    No solidarity.

    Not all Millwall fans are idiots. Like all teams they have good and bad. This is disgusting as is stereotyping all Millwall fans.

    This. ^

    Hate Millwall with a passion but I would support their fight over this. Corrupt to its core.

    Thats my take on this, I actually met some decent Millwall fans on the way back from Wembley who are unhappy with the thuggish minority. Dont get me wrong I cant stand the club and woudnt shed a tear if they dropped down the leagues and out into the conference or below but some of the post on here are descending to their level. We are talking about a working class community based football club being wrecked by politicians lining their pockets. Surely people in Barnsley can find some sympathy Lewisham residents if not the actual football club itself

    Agreed no love for this club, but is a precedent that can`t be allowed to be set.
