In 1939 the population of London would have lived in far fewer houses than the same population does today.


Sadly we're heading back in that direction at the moment with more and more flats being let out room-by-room, with every possible space used as a bedroom (I have even heard of one where the kitchen was turned into a bedroom and a small sink and hob installed in the hallway).

The proposed new stadium has suffered a further setback with Wandsworth Council urging the Sec of State to " call in " the project.

This could delay the project significantly.....the FSF in conjunction with Bring the Dons Home are now urging all fans to write to the Sec of State and show their support for the proposal.

You can show your support here....http://www.fsf.org.uk/...-political-roadblock

Be interesting to see if they can fill it. They struggle sometimes to fill Kingsmeadow and even in the old Division 1, Plough Lane was not always full.

Oops an impressive set up however, will be another one to tick off.

The sky sports report says capacity of 11-20,000? That's very imprecise
The BBC is more clear, showing an initial figure of 11,000 - with the ability to increase.

That makes sense. 11,000 is about right for a club that plays in the lower two divisions of the league

AFC W have always been good at garnering publicity, and I am sure the move will create an increase in crowds initially
Should this be coupled with a winning team, then they keep them longer

I think Kingsmeadow struggles with poor sightlines that potentially hampers the match day experience, and thus attendances. I've yet to tick it off myself, but others I've spoken to said standing near the back of the stand they couldn't see all of the pitch.

It is not great for viewing if it is more than about 50% capacity.

Could you explain how they have shafted Kingstonian out of the ground?

Do you not attribute any blame to the Kholsas who were the ones selling the ground from under Kingstonian?

AFC Wimbledon dealt with kholsas in the early days, they define hypocrisy

Anyone buying the ground would have had to deal with them.

Would you prefer if the ground had just been sold to a property developer and houses built on it then rather than Kingstonian playing at the ground rent-free for the last decade?

I agree with the bit about poor sightlines but it has hardly affected AFC Wimbledon's crowds as all their home games are close to sell-outs.
