The Den: Millwall's home "for many generations to come"

A statement on the Championship club's website said Berylson was "shocked and appalled" at Lewisham Council's decision to sell off to a property developer the freehold of three areas around the stadium.

Millwall say their own plans for the sites - two of which are currently occupied by the club's car park and community centre - have not even been considered.

And keeping the areas under the club's control is seen as key to Millwall's continued success in the neighbourhood.

Despite that, Berylson told the club website: "I have made our position clear to Lewisham Council.

"I am hopeful that we can have positive dialogue with them going forward so that our interests and that of the Community Trust will be recognised and protected.

"I am determined that Millwall will continue to have a very bright future and will be playing football at The Den for many generations to come."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
