Slightly tangential but this does have a Southend United link (tenuous I know) ............. but I am quite interested in the level of enmity and animosity towards M.K. Dons that still continues.

Like many people the whole episode that "allowed" Milton Keynes to "gain" a footing in the league without working their way up the pyramid goes against the basic principles of the football league ........... but there it is. They (M.K. Dons) are in our league (for a little while at least).

Given that many of their current fans had nothing to do with the move and are now simply supporting their local team (and that is better than them travelling to London and supporting Arsenal etcetera) is it about time to call an end to this hostility?

If the answer is "no" then what needs to happen before you say "let by gones be by gones"?

Back in November,I managed to overcome all my hatred of that “club” and finally ticked off the ground and though we threw away 2 points I’m delighted to be able to report that they are by far and away the worst league one team I’ve seen all season-and I have seen them all.

On a slightly different tack, there are other teams that I don't like - sometimes for good reason (floodlight failure at Aldershot anyone? Pitch invasion at Grimsby is another) and that continues onwards. Are their other fans out there that don't like Southend United because of some perceived injustice that "we" dished out in the past?
