At last the people of Lewes will be able to see a Football League side (no disrespect to Lewes FC) play in a proper stadium without having to travel to the smoke. Well done John P a great day for football fans throughout the whole of Sussex.

Whilst not an avid follower of football i am also very glad that The seagulls will have a new home enabling them to generate revenue and hopefully a place in the premier league in future seasons.

That makes me laugh Frank. You have a bypass splitting your village in 2. A railway line doing the same and a dirty great univercity attracting hordes of youngsters daily but you complain about a stadium that will attract keen supporters once a fortnight 6 months a year.I dont understand.Who's back yard did you want me to build it on that would have been fairer?

Perhaps Falmer does want any more upheavals. I am surte that there will be an appeal, that will surely delay the start by a year.

I think that if they don't like it, they can move. Lets face it, they aint skint living there. They could buy a nice house out in the countryside away from bypasses and railway lines and univercities and much welcomed football stadiums. I'm sure there's some football management or serious fans that would snap their houses up.

You could always support another team. It is only football / "entertainment" played by non Brightonians who are paid too much.

Oh excuse me, you are obviously a girl that doesnt understand. Is Lewes full of Lewesians? Were the bricks that built your house made in Lewes? What on earth does it matter where the players come from? Its the team, not the players. Hence the word "team" ( **shaking head**) BTW, many of the team players are local

Bloke actually.
All sport should be semi-professional like rugby used to be so that we stop the ridiculous transfer system that has diminished the "local" element to sport and whereby our airwaves and media are groaning under the over-saturation of football to the detriment of other sports.
I must admit that my "non local" comment is based upon my limited knowledge of the industry and clubs like Chelsea.
It seems fine to critise residents of Falmer of "not being skint (sic)" but the excessive ammount some footballers are paid is fine - double standards and inverted snobbery I feel.
Football is a game enjoyed by some but not all the population. TV schedules seldom show "minority" sports like they did in the days of World or Sport. Yet we have ongoing gossip about second rate teams, their management problems, player infidelities and off pitch shenanigans.
Rant over!!

ok then. Of course I agree footballers are paid far too much and I also agree the game should be semi pro. But!! Why do you think a 23,000 seat stadium is required for a small 'in effect' 2nd division team? I'll tell you. Its because football is the most fanatically supported sport in Europe.You dont hear the stallball teams crying out for stadiums. Its what the people want, let them have it. ps Jake Robinson ( Striker for the Albion) lives with his mum & dad in a council estate in Newhaven and drives a Corsa (worth £1500)What I'm trying to say is that your mixing Chelsea with Brighton which is like mixing Ousedale Close (no disrespect) with Cufail. Its not the money at this level, its love of football that 23000 + people have that demands whats coming.
pps I go to Withdean often and meet men,ladies and children of all ages having a great time. Try it, you never know, you might like it.
Exchange rant over!!

Forget the last remark till the stadiums built as you wont get a ticket. Withdean is too small and way over subscribed

Fair comments. This is what the forum should be like. I am of limited knowledge with regard to football, partly due to its over exposure and it becoming an industry rather than a sport and the fact that I have 2 left feet!

Football always raises a good argument you either love it or hate it. But it seems that everybody loves it when the national team are doing well. You watch how many people suddenly become "fans" if England do well in next years world cup. Just as everybody became rugby fans after the world cup win. You dont see many of them at the Stanley Turner Ground!!!
I have said it before but football is a microcosm of life. Passion, joy, euphoria and disappointment. Love and hate. The people of Falmer will grow to love it or they will move.
