    So everyone who goes to IKEA buys a flatpack wardrobe ?

    Jesus, I'm gonna have to agree with The Hut.

    When I'd had to venture over the border into the one in Croydon, the TRAM is packed with people returning to the safety of South London with SVEN light-bulbs and BJORN potato peelers.

    It's what those huge blue IKEA carrier bags are for.

    You know - the ones the end up taking your washing in and out with.

      Wolfie Smith of the Tooting Popular Front just do one

      Everyone knows those IKEA bags are for weeds to take to the local tip
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Do you live in area? Do you spent upwards of an hour a day stuck in traffic on the A27?

      The club will do just fine without this development.
      I live in the area and I'm on the A27 every day, I don't think it will make matters any better or worse.

      The benefits to the future of the club however are enormous and you are ignorant not to see it, if you look into how we can offset certain costs without the need for TB to stick another 10M per season you can find sustainability at a high level. He won't be around forever.

      Frankly anybody who calls themself an albion fan objecting to this should be ashamed.

      The football club that you support has spent thousands on employing experts in transport planning to ensure that the development will not have a significant adverse impact on traffic. Objecting can only waste the club's and local council tax payers' money. Unless you are a transport expert and can prove that the development contravenes planning policy.
      One of them is definitely not an albion fan and I have my doubts about one of the others.

      I've objected. The A27 is terrible as it is and replacing traffic lights with a roundabout will make no difference.
      I can remember exactly the same objections to Falmer.

      I haven't been following this closely. What are the enormous benefits to the future of the club?

      Martin Perry said at the time this was proposed:

      Clearly there is a profit. It’s not spectacular, but we will make a developer’s profit.

      If somebody says to me we’re just doing it to make money, the fact is Tony Bloom has put more than £200 million into this football club so if we can repay some of that, or reduce that burden, as well as all these other benefits, then I don’t feel guilty about that.
      No statement on what the profit would be (perhaps elsewhere), but it doesn't sound like something that benefits the club enormously, but rather helps pay off some of the debts owed to TB. Now we are in the PL, the club is profitable (obviously no guarantees we will stay there) - and so TB will not continue to put money into the club.

      Surely people shouldn't blindly support something they would normally disagree with just because it benefits the club?

      Exactly. The impact of works on the A27 and after completion are just not worth the hassle to all those that have to queue on A27 every rush hour. Right now you often queue back to Holmbush. This will only make it worse for god knows how long.

      Now if Worthing and Lancing had a proper bypass, that would be different. But I for one am not willing to lose another hour a day just to line someones pockets, regardless of the fact he is the chairman of the club I support.

      If Tony Bloom is so desperate to be repaid, then take it out of the tens of millions we have made through promotion.

      Given how obsessed Brighton fans are these days about staying in the Premier League, I'd hazard a guess that your suggestion to cancel this development and instead repay TB using funds that could otherwise be used to strengthen the team will go down like a lead balloon.
