Albion at Milton Keynes - Right or wrong?

10 June 2005

As you may well know by now, Albion have announced that they will be visiting tha National Hockey Stadium to play the Milton Keynes Dons on Wednesday 13th July in a pre-season friendly. But are they right to do this? Wimbledon have been held in contempt by many football supporters over their "football franchise" operation, which moved the club from it's roots and alienated most of their traditional fan base in the process.

A couple of Albion fans are extremely opposed to the friendly being played and have set up a website to campaign for the club to follow in the footsteps of Spurs, Charlton, Feyenoord and others by reversing their decision to play there.
