Millwall Supporters Defend Their Town From Looters

10 Aug

Bobby Robson, manager of Ipswich in 1978, said of Millwall fans after fights erupted throughout The Den during an FA Cup match, “They [the police] should have turned the flamethrowers on them.” When you consider the history of Millwall supporters, that could be construed as a compliment.

It would exhaust too much time and effort to recount the past of Millwall FC supporters, but in short, they were some of the worst torchbearers of English hooliganism in the 1970’s. (There is a great movie called “Green Street Hooligans” which will give you some idea.)

So amidst the anarchy engulfing England at the moment, one would expect that many of these imbeciles are indeed football supporters and hooligans who crave violence for the sake of violence. Well, think again. In times of such chaos, it is the hard-line Millwall supporters who are taking to the streets to defend their home turf from the looters. Singing in unison “no one loots us,” the small group of supporters can be seen pictured above pictured guarding downtown Eltham.

However that was the middle of the afternoon. Once the sun set and the rioters re-emerged, the supporters sprung into action. The two videos after the jump show Millwall supporters and police chasing rioters down the street. It’s a sensational scene by a group of individuals long chided as social enigmas, but still every bit a part of English society as anyone else to defend it.
