And only the winners of Div 1 going into the CHAMPIONS league better still go back to the European cup

I was walking to the ground from South Bermz station for the Ipswich game, a couple of 40 something blokes were chatting to each other in their mother non English tongue. I asked where they were from, Norway was the reply, they come over a handful of times a year specifically to the Den. So not so much tourist supporters or are they?

The seepage of money that is infecting football is working its way through the championship with the prize money and parachute payments. Just look at the difference of a couple of seasons since we were last here, 15 million for someone that knows where the net is!

With reaching the promised land comes a whole bunch of compliance so the promoted ones fit the model. Brighton had to spend 10 million on their ground after promotion to fit the criteria, anyone that has visited that ground would wonder why?

Part of me wants us to get there just to piss the football authorities off, and so that the likes of big clubs have to come to the Den and suffer like Leicester did. To come and taste the distasteful, to feel the hostility, to have the anxiety of not wanting to take a throw in because some nasty supporter is going to call the player a cult.

If there is one photo that the opposition supporters and players need to see it is this, us smokin and drinkin, not that I would do such a thing.

Suits me fine, but it would never happen.
I'd rather follow Millwall in League 2 and keep things the way they are rather than become premier league-ised.

100 years from now, football will be for the rich, not the working class. Some would argue that this is already taking hold in the European elite. It opened my eyes.


100 years from now there will be an elite world league. It will take less than an hour to get anywhere in the world. There will only be about fifty professional clubs in the world. All the others will be playing in amateur leagues that nobody gives a shit about.

Hampton is correct, this is a good thread, the changing face of football. All London clubs, used to have their own identity, prem money has eroded this as a different type of fan (note; not supporter) has pitched up.

Chelse for a while now and Arsenal since the new ground have lost their original support, West Ham are in the process of cleansing, Palace........ha.....are just the same.


Funny that you should make that distinction FW - as i always describe myself as a Millwall Supporter not a Millwall Fan... I'm actually not quite sure why, but I have an adverse reaction to the word 'fan'. I think 30 years ago all blokes that followed a football team were called supporters, fans were something that went to music concerts.

This is why West Ham's move away from upton parkistan and subsequent demise is a double edged sword... On one hand its amusing to watch them crumble as they become Arsenalfied but on the other hand if they die as the club we know then a little bit of us dies with them. Football is all about rivalries and defending your own (or it was before it went wrong) and although we at Wall are lucky enough to generally remain true to our roots (compared to other teams), we can't survive as we are and as we have been without those intense rivalries. The demise of Chelsea, West Ham, Arsenal (yes even them - they weren't always the corporate wank that they are now) is sad for any real football supporter.
