I'm amazed that the club has arranged a match at Franchise FC after the controversy last summer when a number of friendlies with them were cancelled after complaints from supporters. It shows to me that the powers that be at the club haven't got a clue how supporters feel about issues like this.
It's not just me that feels this way is it?

For once I agree with you webmaster. They must be thick!

I voted 'No' - They're a disgrace to football. Who actually organises the friendlies? Micky/Basset? Or the club......

The club organise the friendlies - we should boycott this one.

Would you care if LCFC had been moved to another city?

Football supporters should stand together on issues like this, because the MK thing could just be the thin end of the wedge.

No Barcelona next year then? and no trip to Iceland?
There may be more fixtures added to the list, so there's still time for one or two big home games to be added. Could be waiting to see what division we're in before finalising things.

Yes it would be our club playing a club that has doesn't bother me.

So many more things bother me then something silly like this.

Totally agree webmaster, hence why I put "AFC Wimbledon care".

I know that Wimbledon didn't exactly have a huge fan base, but they had loyal fans. If anything, Wimbledon (Franchise) FC should have had to start in the combined counties league and AFC Wimbledon allowed to start in Division one.

The FA really cocked up here.

The supporters association should boycott all Wimbledon FC matches because giving money to them is like giving money to satan.

No seaside towns either! Where's bournemouth, Kiddimister and Brighton? Those are thae games I went to last year - and made a mini holiday out of the bournemouth one!

Mabey they don't want another bonding trip or can't afford the hotel cost!

No one goes to see them anyway, everybody in the area already has their own club. They will go out of business pretty soon I would guess.

The whole reason why this fixture has been arranged IS to chivvy us along into accepting that the MK Dons are here to stay (in the Vauxhall Coference by the way things are going).

And as for the true Wombles; are they still turning up in their thousands to watch the resurrected Wimbledon FC in whatever god forsaken league they're in?

They get about 3000/4000 going to their home games on average.

Its the principle of it. FFC should not exist and City should not be seen to be encouraging them either.

We should play AFC Wimbledon instead!

Very good point indeed! That's a great idea! It would give them plenty of cash and show that LCFC have morals.

We are you bothered? We are only playing a friendly against them, if your going to slag leicester off for playing them well slag all the division one teams off for playing them this season too. Dear me, probably the most pathetic thing i've ever heard.

The teams who played them in Divison 1 had to play them as they were in the same division as them. We are choosing to play them in a friendly, there's a huge difference.

The teams who played them who had supporters trusts all had campaigns conducted to ask their fans not to go to Milton Keynes.

The issue of the Wimbledon club being moved has stirred up a lot of feeling and other clubs such as Spurs and Charlton were sufficiently convinced by their fans that they cancelled their friendlys in the last pre-season.

We should do the same.

Pathetic, we live in a democratic world. They had no choice but to move and even if they didn't, you can't please everyone. It's nothing to do with other teams, it's to do with the club and their fans. At the end of the day they are a business and their fans are their market and target audience, Leicester and other clubs have no right to be poking their noses in. We are another business and have no right to boycott them, on what grounds?

There's too much talk about how football is a business. I'm sick of it

What happened at Wimbledon was an absolute affront to everything that is good about football and everything that is held dear by a true football fan.

The fact that the whole of the footballing community in England has not revolted against it is a shameful episode.

The club was effectively sold off to another part of the country and moved lock stock and barrel away from where it belonged. Think of the precedent it sets. Would you be happy if Leicester City were moved to a new stadium in Essex, and the only choice you were left with was watching some cruddy non league side ? It's either that or watch Forest - no choice at all, really

Now our club sanctions the whole deal by turning up for a friendly. It doesn't matter if hardly anybody goes, or if doesn't make the headlines. We are supporting something that is wholly wrong and corrupt.

Now I was no fan of the "real" Wimbledon FC, but their poor fans have been shafted good and proper. And yes, you should be bothered.
Business wins again over football, and you can't be bothered ?

Hang your head in shame

Foxes Trust, this is the type of thing I want you to get involved in. Can we have some action, please ?

I'm sick and tired of all this shit. I'm a Leicester fan and my mind is well and truely focused on them, the world we live in is shit. There are many things that go on that astound me, but there's not alot I can do about or the nation or world coming together can do about it. Accept that shit happens otherwise you'll always look like your squeezing one out, so I will re-iterate it again BOTHERED
