Hi Flipper
can not tell you what was going on but was caught up in the mayhem trying to get out of the area at 2.30pm. NIGHTMARE. loads of police then, no trouble as i could see but alot of police not doing anything but holding up the traffic instead of directing it. Alot of Millwall fans who all seemed to be behaving, but maybe that was why.

Millwall fans arent that bad it's the rent a mob lot that turn up sometimes that cause the trouble. My husband is in a wheel chair and goes regularly he has never seen or been involved in any fracas,,,

speaking of which are there any Com Cab drivers reading this forum, who like football and would be prepared to take a wheelchair bound footie fan from the nursing home to Millwall, watch the game and return him to the nursing home in Lower Road? Don has a taxi-card, so the fare would be paid. just grabbing at straws as my step-son is moving to N.Zealand with his wife and children in June.

and the porcine element takes to the sky...

I for one was glad that the police were there. It may look like they aren't doing anything, but I can assure you that they were! They wouldn't be there otherwise. We don't have that many police!

Agreed rm - what a ridiculous comment ali... Not much else to say about that really - nonsense. If it had kicked off you'd want them there I can assure you.
