Another big step forward it seems with the CPO appeal. This week just keeps on giving....

Seems a torturous process but we could well see things happening on the site soon maybe. Still a couple of seasons at least left at GP though, will we be able to bow out with top flight football at our spiritual home?

Talking to a Millwall fan they seem to be going in the other direction with Lewisham Council using CPO's to buy up all their surrounding land round the Den including the car parks and Lions centre and they think force them out eventually. We are maybe very lucky we have Hounslow Council with us.

Well done for putting this up KentBee, without getting too carried away it is hard to view this as anything other than great news. I'll be gutted to leave GP, i'm not even sure if i'd have it in me to go to the last game, BUT for the future of the club we need to be in LR ASAP. My only hope is that we can find a way to give it more character and atmosphere than the breeze block, identikit bowls we've been visiting in the championship. Reading, Cardiff, Derby, Wigan, Udders, MKD, Bolton, to name but a few.

Hope Millwall are ok, the New Den isn't the most salubrious of places but I really love going there.

To be honest I'm looking forward to some decent and plentiful bogs!

Won't be the same without that faint smell of stale urine and burger vomit.

Dear Mr Kentbee

Good point re. Hounslow Council, sadly they haven't always been on our side. I remember arguing with no longer Cllr. Cooper over ten years ago over BFC, and I have to say his attitude towards us was pretty negative.

However, at the famous meeting a couple of years ago, the worm turned. Very sad that the whole thing is still rumbling on (and you just hope this idiot isn't going to appeal), but hopefully this is it now.

Very sorry to hear Millwall are having trouble by the way.

Regards

Gordon

I would like to think that Zach Goldsmith's opposition to Lionel Road contributed to his miserable defeat.

LOL. Good point. Still there were Brentford fans on Facebook happily posting that their racist views took precedence over their football club and voted for Zac or Golding just because they weren't "Muslim scum" as one put it. I got into debate, or loosely called debate. Basically telling them why they were wrong and getting abuse in return lol.

Looks like the CPO on all land is being processed with no further appeals. Guess there will be an announcement when all land is in our hands.

Amazing if true mate, would be a real lift going into the new season. Now let's make it bigger to prove to some of our own who still think we're a small club. Seen some even suggesting that AFC are bigger because they took 20K to Wembley, we had 26K at the JPT final - come on peeps!

Need to get those ST sales up a bit 5k+ not bad for the mo though.

Looks like the work on site is finally now starting with some preparatory clearance work etc. going on suddenly.

Its' all a bit low key but quite a historic moment for our club I feel. No doubt there will be some more ceremonious moments when the first brick etc. is laid

I have friends who are Orient supporters and it is quite poignant that in the week we start the next chapter in our rise as a club they are about to hit rock bottom with possible administration and very likely relegation out of the football league in a few weeks. Two clubs with a similar past and stature going in very different directions.

So it all starts officially and the countdown to the end of GP begins, maybe what 55 or so home games left if all goes to plan? that sounds like a reality check.

Nice touch to use the old stable building bricks in the new stadium development. I really hope it will be a stadium with individuality that is synonymous with GP.

Couldn't agree more, amazing effort to get it this far, now it's about the build & making it unique. Gutted to leave GP but it is about the future now, and the destruction of the RO took much of her beauty away. All who can should get down there & enjoy the memories whilst we can. Regardless of the football the place is special & our common church.

In case you've not seen it, here's another article from neutrals extolling the virtues of GP:

What an excellent article. Thanks for sharing that, Beefy.

Today for me as an old git that hates change is dreadful. Brexit (could screw up my wonderful life here sooner than you think), new ground and most importantly they've changed the picture on tubs of drinking chocolate. When is it going to end?

All the places of my youth are gone, Blackpool Mecca, Wigan Casino and soon the one thing I thought would be my constant. Griffin Park. Not sure I could continue elsewhere. It would be like another club to me.

I've watched football from all sides of Griffin Park, and remember when we used to change ends at half time and walk round the side of the pitch, but the Ealing Road stand is my absolute favourite place to watch football in all the world.
