MK Dons v AFC Wimbledon: Will this be a reality for the Irons one day ?
For many veteran season ticket holders the umbilical cord been cut by Sullivan, Gold & Brady, who have moved the club from a tightly knitted football ground to a sports arena with the 75% of the seats too far away from the pitch for the 12th player (the fans), no real Family enclosure, no proper away end safely sectioned off and critically, many groups of long term WHU fans, who watched the Irons together for decades in the same part of the stadium, all split-up to different parts of the new ground.

If the Board don't invest properly in top players and sort the stadium out, will there be a AFC West Ham ?

Wimbledon FC were founded in 1889 and climbed from non-league to the Premier League. Renowned for their direct style of football, their most famous moment was their FA Cup final victory over Liverpool in 1988.

AFC Wimbledon were formed in 2002 by Wimbledon FC supporters dismayed by the Football Association's decision to allow the club to move to Milton Keynes. Since their creation they have risen from the ninth tier of English football to League One, having reached the Football League in 2011.

Nope because we'll be good again and we'll be bad again and everyone will fucking moan about it. It's in the lifeblood of the club and anyone who says 'this is the worst time ever' or 'we won't come back from this' is either stupid, naïve or hasn't supported the club for long. Get a grip.

No as we are still in Newham and not suddenly playing in Canterbury as they need a team. Also which original badge are we having one of the other incarnations , or is it the last one which we had for a few years , we've had so many I'm confused.

Reading comments on here I'm not much of a football fan, no west ham would mean no football for me, been daggers orient millwall posh and all meaningless to me.

Because you have to be far-left leaning to support them. The supporters thrive on being political. If I want that, I'll head to Glasgow and get behind the Rangers. But I won't, because although I like the Gers, especially over their city rivals, politics and football should be separate.

Plus I find it funny every time the Clapron fans get filled on by Thamesmead!

Why bother starting a new team, just start watching Clapton FC in Forest Gate. Proper football back on home turf, if enough of us went there maybe the council would sort out the terrible embarrassment of the Spotted Dog pub.

I think that the Old Castle Swifts are a sadly forgotten member of the teams that united to form West Ham.
How about the Stratford Swifts?

'I know the history of my own club you cock. The point I was making is that the change from a strictly amateur works team that played in Chelsea colours to a professional team with a totally different identity was a massive change. '

No point being shitty about it, you're just wrong.

When the already professional club who had changed their colours to claret and blue the year previously, reformed in July 1900, as planned all along, five days after Thames Ironworks disbanded, the players were the same, they played in the same kit, they played in the same league, the Southern League, and at the same ground, the Memorial Grounds, and had essentially the same owner, Arnold Hills.


The reformation was purely to disassociate the football club from the iron business.

And they played in jade green for the first two years of their existence, anyway.

No matter how ancient blue is, it wasn't a Chelsea colour before there was a Chelsea.

*waits for another insult instead of an sensible answer*

The point was that we played in a blue strip, you twat. I think blue was invented before 1895.

Chelsea weren't invented until 1905...

Sorry, but they weren't.

Since West Ham United WAS Thames Ironworks after it changed its name (you may have heard people calling out, 'Come on you Irons'), can we assume you are deliriously happy?


I know the history of my own club you cock. The point I was making is that the change from a strictly amateur works team that played in Chelsea colours to a professional team with a totally different identity was a massive change. The only thing that stayed the same was some of the players came over, most didn't though as they had 'proper' jobs still at the shipyard.

Ironically our first playing venue as West Ham united had a cycle track around the pitch!


I am very despondent about the current incarnation of the the club and I can see why people would want a phoenix club. I'd support it fully if it happened, especially if it was owned by a supporters trust
