Growing up in south London , the red bus rover, 25 pence to get in
Most football grounds.the world's your oyster. For me no club club could match the wall., The roar from the old den could be heard on the Pepys estate. As a kid i was all over London's grounds ,not one could ever match the den. Pure passion.

It's one thing I have my old man to thank for. I certainly didn't get my good looks from him that's for sure. Bald fucker. I always get asked why millwall and for a club like ours it's important to keep the family roots going

Family and Location, granddad was a docker and his dad before. Plus the buzz of the old den to an 8 or 9 year old at his first game.

No family were 'Wall, my dad never went to football no uncles that followed anyone, in fact my first game a neighbour took me to Charlton. How did I find my way to the Den here as an 11yr old? No idea, can't remember my first game.

My grandad took my Dad when he was two and he took me when I was two. One of my daughters is as keen as me but the other one says"How did they get on? They lost...oh well" When the Den is rocking there is absolutely nothing to beat it!

My Granddad supported them on the Island prior to moving south, my dad hated his father because he used to get pissed and knock my dads mother about.
My dad being the third youngest of 12 kids for some strange reason followed Millwall along with his older brother despite the man they most hated in life, eventually I came along and the two of them began taking me with them to the old den, my old man was totally different to his father and he was a real family man.
When his brother died he lost the bug of attending but I carried on and he used to asked me how we played every Saturday night when I used to go and have a beer with him before meeting up with the lads.

Grew up in Forest Hill, went to matches all over London with different teams (anywhere where there was a good chance of trouble) in the late 70's and 80's - back then London was divided, North, East and South London even had different London accents, my older brother RIP supported West Ham so went home and away with them but after going to Millwall it just felt right, at home with like minded, best decision I ever made.

I know I'm an old cunt but to watch a whole stand react to a small fight breaking out was amazing and the feeling of complete power over the ob like we had at the old den. When you went to Chelsea, Arsenal even West Ham the ob would just dip in grab you, take details and kick you out at Millwall they just wouldn't dare. stewards - ha ha

Overall you had a reason why you supported Wall for me, my mums family Dominy's all came from Peckham, I grew up SE London and the Den was ours.

Why Millwall....? Wrong question.

Surely, "God!!! Why me......???"

Just to add, whilst I had no family connections to lead me there it was and is a complete fit. To the point that by accident or love I married a Deptford girl, a few years prior to meeting her she was a 'beat the clock' girl. The older ones will know about this.

When we moved away I lost touch for quite sometime, work, family, distance, money, time, playing football (always first) and any other number of excuses.

When my reconnection (was going to write born again, doh!) came it was like I hadn't been away, slipped straight back into it. Now my daughters get to a game whenever they can, and the grandchildren whilst have yet to be taken are completely indoctrinated.

Do I get points for multiplying 'Wall support?
