    They've already burnt their bridges IMO. Surely no major partner or local authority will ever want to work with them again? Their name is toxic now.

    Or maybe they did it on purpose - take something away so you can offer it back in return for what you want? I notice they are only offering to climb down if they get their planning permission approved.

    Which makes their bullshit attempt at spin WORTHLESS!

    Emailed my councillors and got a response within 5 minutes!

    Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write to us all.

    You may rest assured we are fully supportive of the Council’s proposed acquisition. We will do all we can to ensure the Club’s future and success.

    Fuck you Meadow and fuck you Blake Morgan. You've been caught out for the bullying bullshitters you are.

    I sincerely hope both the club and the council will be telling Meadow where to go with their back-pedalling, snivelling, we-only-want-what's-best-for-everyone guff. Their attempt to imply that the trademark shenanigans was all done for the good of the club, while at the same time attempting to use it as a bargaining chip to get the council to do what they want, is transparent in the extreme. Even if everyone went along with it, the next dirty trick would surely be just around the corner (and note that their peace offering still only offers the club the stadium until the end of this season - why is that??).

    These guys have permanently burned their bridges with everyone and yet they're still going on about their ridiculous, never-gonna-happen development plans? When are they going to wake up and let that rubbish go - no one wants their luxury flats with pathetic levels of affordable housing, and no one wants them to build on MoL. More than ever this has me convinced that we all need to stand our ground here. If Meadow have any sense at all they'll surely try to put in motion a sale to Legacy so that they can at least still make some money out of all this, before the council comes along and forces them to accept a smaller compulsory offer.

    Bunch of massive bullies.

    What can be practically done though? They didn't pay the rent and so got evicted? Or is there something else I'm missing? Sorry didn't read the whole thread.

    I'm sure if you passed a pot around all those Lords who give a shit all of sudden they could rustle up the cash.

    Some interesting comments on this article. Blake Morgan are knee deep in this and get comprehensively pwned.

    Meadow ran the finances of the club until November 1st, 2017. They could and should have taken that rent out as they went along, they didn't for a reason. To pressure us and to use us as leverage to get what they want from the council. Just like every other dirty tactic they've used, it's all about using us as leverage.

    Do all these Lords, Ladies & MPs have a Hamlet scarf or are they just passing one around! I would like to think that Lord Lytton damaged his thumb giving Bennison a "bit of a tickle".

    Rutita1 Scum with no integrity, apparently.

    They are clearly passing it around. Lords and MPs love a campaign/support photo op. It makes it appear they actually do some work and are in touch with what's going on. ;)

    So the club wasn’t paying rent from when to when? Meadow sound like cunts but I’ve been evicted from flats for not paying rent. Who’s reponsible for not noticing the main overhead was not being asked for from the landlord?

    Meadow were running the finances on behalf of the majority shareholder. they chose not to pay it themselves & I believe stated that they would not be charging the 'rent' to the Club.

    Fair enough. I assume all that’s in writing? I’d also assume they’ve covered their arses in a big way before making this move.

    Some of those lords are formal lawyers. I’d ask them to do something more practical than donning a scarf on their way to the subsidised bar.

    I'm so incensed by Meadow that I'd rather DHFC & Southwark Council freezes them out and forces them out of London altogether, even if it has a negative short term impact on our club. Sometimes you have to take a stand rather than kiss the stinking backsides of the Meadows of this world.

    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and I'm increasingly confident our club will emerge from this as an even greater force.

    So the bar staff are all now sacked? Nice work Meadow, you cunts.

    Meadows Residential has one objective - get what he wants at any cause no matter who is hurt in the process.

    The current events is proof they cannot be trusted.

    I heard they now have a 24 hour security guard, guarding the Club house....
    What do they think we will do go and squat...maybe we should.

    I reckon that 24 guard will be another retrospective invoice that'll appear being charged to the club further down the line.

    Definitely one scarf - a gift to Lord Roy Kennedy of Southwark yesterday morning. He appears to have been roaming the Palace of Westminster ever since - getting as many Lords and MPs as he can to support the Hamlet cause. He is also a Trust Member - has been for a few years - and has been down to Champion Hill loads of times (primarily when Millwall aren't at home). An absolute top chap.

    They have our War Memorial, boardroom memorabilia and possibly team kit plus club shop stock.

    Why are you trying to be a contrarian about this?

    I have no idea if it's in writing, but either way the football committee is hardly at fault. Meadow was controlling the club's finances on behalf of the majority shareholder. As landlord it chose not to pay itself rent out of the club's revenues. The football committee clearly had no say in this.

    Why are you being so naive? Is this commitment in writing or not? If there’s nothing in writing then sadly the football committee has no leg to stand on. Has anyone actually checked this? Was it a gentleman’s agreement or something?
