    Sorry, but I don't understand what it is you're saying. Anyhow, "AFC Wimbledon has been given the green light to build its new stadium after signing an agreement with Merton Council, it has been reported. The local authority signed a section 106 agreement which will allow construction of the...

    I imagine it's something to do with this: https://www.constructionnews.co.uk/markets/sectors/leisure/afc-wimbledons-new-stadium-secures-final-approval/10026340.article In any case, it can't be from the sale of their remaining lease on Kingsmeadow to Chelsea, since that only raised £2m, half of...

    I agree it is sad, but the fact is, K's were a badly run club for years before AFC ever appeared on the scene*. And they only moved to Kingsmeadow in 1989, having previously been at Richmond Road for nearly a century. I don't know why they sold Richmond Road, but it may have been because they...

    Er, they didn't buy the ground, they bought the lease, for £2.4m (a lease which K's couldn't afford to buy themselves, btw). And they allowed K's to share the ground while they were there. Meanwhile, I don't know where you got your "£40m" from. When they sold the remaining lease to Chelsea, the...

    Yes, especially these bits: Some of these concerns were allayed at a supporters’ open meeting in October, although new concerns arose from the menstrual cycle of a gap between press revelations and said briefing. One important clarification was that Ks would receive two payments from Wimbledon...

    And would that be enough to sustain them at Kingsmeadow (assuming Chelski weren't on the scene)?

    AFCW 'bought' K's 12 years in which to sort out their financial problems and put together the funds to buy back a lease on Kingsmeadow or find somewhere else to play. For whatever reason, they have failed to do so. In other words, if you took AFCW out of the equation, they would likely have...

    Wimbledon was one of five dog tracks put up for sale by the Greyhound Racing Association in 2005, with Wimbledon being sold to a property developer, Galliard Homes. I know that despite the name, the GRA was not the governing body of the sport, but being a leading industry player, it ultimately...

    I can see why K's fans dislike hearing what the Board has to say, but is that the same as the Board being incorrect/misleading in what their statement? (Unsure). True, but the K's Board is telling us that they are exceeding their obligations. Is the Board lying? (Unsure) Do you have some insight...

    Considering it is the Greyhound Racing Association which is in bed with Galliard Homes, and are happy to see Plough Lane sold for redevelopment, I hardly think AFCW should be held responsible for the poor old pooches. Maybe Good Old Victor Chandler, who made a fortune out of betting on the...

    AFCW are giving them more money than they (AFCW) are contractually obliged to. And K's Board has publicly and specifically thanked them for the assistance they are giving them. You may dislike AFCW, while I have no view either way (aside from the fact that they're a million times better than...

    Overall an impressive document. The bit on "The Future of Kingstonian" (page 9) is interesting.

    Afaik Chelsea aren't just buying the ground for their U-21's, they also intend for their Ladies team to play there. And even with the Ladies having a Summer season, I doubt the pitch would withstand three teams playing on it, at least to the standard of playing surface Chelsea require for their...

    Since it is a King George V ground, there may be covenants preserving it for community/amateur use, rather than professional/semi-professional football. Dunno what the capacity at Casuals is, but if K's have any long term ambition to get back where they've been previously, shouldn't they be...

    If that's the case, then surely it will be they who are more worthy of being called "scum", than AFCW?

    Quite right. I always understood that had AFCW not put up the money to buy the lease from the Khoslas, K's would not have been able to carry on playing in the stadium. Indeed they might have folded completely. Meanwhile, the latest statements from Kingstonian's Board have paid generous tribute...
