I first read about this story over a year ago and there is nothing new in what the paper has reported so I take it the club are just turning the heat up to get public support.

They should go and share the London Stadium with West Ham!

Well actually play there at the same time (unless they were playing each other, which is irrelevant) and given the amount of money that's been spunked making that white elephant into a (crap) football ground maybe a second club should be playing there.

Even better would be a merger of both clubs. West Millwall United? Sly

If they'd had 22 on the pitch last Friday they might have made a game of it with Man City

Derby's new ground the iPro is modern & soulless. I miss the terraced Baseball Ground days(pre all seater). It was cramped and full of atmosphere and I loved it.

My only visit to the Baseball Ground was when Revie's Leeds beat Clough's Derby 3-2 in 1973.

The "tackling" was somewhat fierce, occasionally the ball was in the vicinity. Distinct shortage of goodwill around. Shocked

Stood on the terraces amongst the Derby fans I didn't feel cramped so much as crushed and extricated myself well before the end of the game. Pirate

It was one of the couple of games featured on Match of the Day that Saturday so I caught the bits of violence I'd missed by leaving early. Though I'd have preferred to watch something kinder and gentler, like a war movie.

Did you never do the old one down Cold Blow Lane Gareth? Now that was a proper football ground.

The number of new builds that I like can be counted on the fingers of one hand ( league and non-league)

I know clubs at all levels need to progress to thrive and in some cases survive but has no-one got any imagination when planning these places? And no FGR is not the answer!!Sly

Re: [kirby knitters] Millwall May Be Booted From Their Ground [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I like some of the new builds but I do agree in general most are a bit soulless. I think part of that is simply the lack of history, and that will develop over time but some of it is poor design. Southampton, Leicester, Coventry, Reading, Cardiff, Shrewsbury are examples I can think of where the design is a bit unoriginal. Leicester are however well renowned for the noise the fans generate and Coventry's stadium is very beautiful to be in too. When I think of a good new ground I think of Brighton's, but it's all about what you want from a match day. If you want the history and the variety, an old ground with pillars and hotchpot stands is going to be special, if you want a great view and not feel like a tinned sardine then a new ground is for you.

Many new grounds still don't cater for those of use over six foot tall, certainly not in the lower tiers. Saying that nor do identikit stands, they lack leg room and height.

I don't know how old Gareth is but it is nearly 24 years since Millwall played the last game there, so quite a few posters on this forum will be too young to have done it. You would need to be in your early 30's to have ticked it and also to be able to remember it.

Don't realise where the years have gone Chris. Very little chance 'young Gareth' ever visited the old ground.

Over the 91>93 period, when I was a 3rd & 4th year apprentice with the M.o.D. I remember watching the "New Den" going up while I was commuting in & out of London from Chislehurst.

God, how I miss the old Den. An atmosphere I've never experienced anywhere else. It was extra special on a damp midweek night. On the walk from New Cross, there was a crackle in the air (probably the moisture on the railway). Then noise in the stadium was deafening and the home terrace felt like a community, incredibly diverse (given the club's reputation in the 80s, this surprised me when I first saw it), united in the 'No one likes us' camaraderie.
Exhilarating! Almost love it more than my beloved Jenner Park!

To be fair, my experience is that new grounds are far better than older grounds. At Brammall Lane I had to sit sideways as the legroom was about half of the length of my legs...
