Hope they get shafted by the developers and go bust. It is not on the old Wimbledon FC, Plough Lane site (that has flats on it), it is on the greyhound/stock car track. AFC have never played at Plough Lane but act as if they have the god given right to move there.

Crazy talk. Old Wimbledon FC is in MK. Why would the phoenix club that the old Wimbledon FC fans created not go back to Plough Lane a few hundred meters up the road?

What kind of fundamentalist are you?

AFC Wimbledon claim that they are going back to their home at Plough Lane, they were formed in 2002. The land they are moving to is the current greyhound/stock car stadium that has been there since the '20's without football ever being played there - so it is not a move back home.

The AFC fans claim they were shafted and lost their ground/club (and people felt sorry for them) but now greyhounds and stock car racing is going to be forced to close - that is ok as AFC get what they want.

AFC currently play at Kingsmeadow and share with Kingstonian but they are selling that to Chelsea and leaving Kingstonian homeless - but that is ok as AFC get what they want.

Ironic that a group of fans that claim they were so unfairly treated can **** on everyone else to get what they want and people think it is wonderful.

The deal with the planning permission is that Galliard Homes will build them the shell of a stadium and inside it will have temporary stands for 11k (until it expands to 20k, which time permanent stands will be built). Galliard Homes get to build 602 flats that will bring in about 181 million pounds but they cannot build them without using some of it for sporting use. Unlike the proposed Fossetts Farm project there is no outside revenue from the development and many AFC fans are worried how they will survive - the way they have carried on to get what they want, I hope they don't.
