As a Millwall Fan, we have to nip things in the bud when people do anti-social things within our group. At the end of the day, in order for Millwall Football Club to ‘grow’, be successful and boost income, they need to attract different people and allow a more inclusive fanbase. Not everyone at Millwall, is extreme right wing.
London is changing all the time, new people coming into Bermondsey, from all walks of life, so things need to change. The Club is expected to move, which means where will be another customer base.
I have seen today, on various social media forums that some Millwall fans have been racist. They proudly say they are Millwall fans on their social media pages and have some have BNP links.
Obviously, this applies to other football fans from other Clubs as well, but we have to expose racism in our own group. The law is on our side.
On social media platforms, I suggest we stand up to Trolls, from our own clubs. Let’s be the change.
Millwall supporters from the LBTQIA and heterosexual community attended London Pride 2017 and supported the LGBTQIA football fans from all clubs, including West Ham, in the Pride Parade this afternoon. Some fans were unable to make the Parade itself but went anyway, as part of the crowd.
When a Millwall supporter waved his distinctive scarf, some West Ham fans smiled and joked. It was all good fun, everyone was in good spirits.
Later in the day, the Millwall fans went to Trafalgar Square, and despite wearing their ‘Millwall, No one Likes us scarves’ received many hugs from lesbians and gay men.
Roy Larner, 47, who was stabbed eight times by terrorists in the London Attack at the weekend, now has over £40k in his fundraiser account thanks to Millwall fans and supporters.
Roy Larner, is the father of the sister of Youtube English Language specialist, Jade Joddle, who I regularly watch on Youtube (and sometimes disagree with). She said that she also backs him although sometimes they didn’t get on.
As a Millwall fan myself (and sometimes disagreeing with their behaviour sometimes,even though it is my team), this is what we Millwall fans want to hear. Let’s get rid of ‘No one Likes us’ and change it to ‘Millwall, Proud to be a Lion’ in honour of Roy Larner, a true Millwall Hero.
