The Guardian

Millwall admit council scheme could force club to leave Lewisham

• Land around the Den may be purchased compulsorily and sold to developers
• ‘Any and every option would have to be considered’ if Renewal plan proceeds


Millwall Football Club have admitted for the first time that they may be forced to leave their south London home and relocate to Kent should the seizure of their land go ahead. Lewisham council’s plan to compulsorily purchase areas around the Den and sell them on to a mysterious offshore developer with connections to the current Labour administration has already drawn both disbelief and mass protest.

Hopefully Oyston will do the same and we can start with the Phoenix club.

Why Kent? It seems a fairly random thing unless a place in Kent has offered to fund a brand new stadium...

I can't say Millwall is a club I have any time for, but I do feel for their fans if they relocate.

me neither to be honest, but they're talking about a ground 70 miles away, which is a tragedy for local good fans ...

Quite a bit of south east London is in Kent. #

Ridiculous and a great shame if it happens but couldn't happen to a bigger bunch of cunts.
