DAY OF SHAME FOR MILLWALL SUPPORTERS
FOR Millwall, days don’t get much worse than this. A team who can’t win. A manager who can’t smile. Fans who couldn’t take defeat.
Lions supporters get a raw deal these days, a largely unmerited legacy of their dark past as the archetypal 80s thugs.
And, yet again, the vast majority at New York Stadium behaved immac- ulately. But, just as at Wembley in the FA Cup semis of 2013, a braindead minority have spoiled it for everyone.
A late defeat is hard to take, but no justification for what followed. This was real violence and when female stewards - probably paid minimum wage - are leaving games blood-spattered and in an ambulance, action should be taken.
Needless to say, anyone identified should be banned for life. And if right-thinking Millwall fans really love their club, they should shop them.
As for their team, it’s hard to see a way back from here. For Rotherham, this was by far their biggest win of the season.
