I am surprised no-one has brought this up as yet, our former CEO has inherited one almighty challenge as the new CEO at Millwall FC, and was on Talk Sport yesterday discussing it and galvanising support - which has been pretty forthcoming from the football world in general.

Basically, Lewisham Council want to raze the whole area to the ground and re-generate it, including The Den. Problem is, there is no provision for a football club in the future plans. Now, we all know no-one likes Millwall FC :winking: but this is a disgraceful act by the Lewisham councillors, not least because the company awarded the regeneration development has two former councillors on its board - nepotism, anyone?

The football club have said that, if they are not accommodated, they will move to Kent - not sure how Gillingham will feel about that in all fairness - but anyway, there is currently a 38 degrees petition which obviously football fans are being encouraged to sign to show their support. If anyone fancies signing it, here's a link to it:
