Millwall Chief Executive, Andy Ambler, has met with Football Association officials following the violence which erupted amongst Millwall supporters during Saturday’s 2-0 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Wigan Athletic.
Ambler had this to say on the BBC website:
“We have pledged to offer all the help and assistance we can during the course of the investigations. At this stage, we are still awaiting details of the arrests that have already been made and understand that the police will want to identify others. Similarly, they will seek to discover what caused the disorder to occur and we are grateful for all the correspondence we have received from Lions fans who were as appalled as we were by what went on.”
“The actions of a minority on Saturday spoiled what should have been an exciting day for 32,000 of our supporters who came out to cheer their team at Wembley. Furthermore, the reputation of our club, which over the last few years has been steadily and painstakingly rebuilt, has been severely damaged once again. We understand that there are now bridges to be rebuilt, and if there are lessons to be learned from the weekend I’m sure all parties will be keen to take them on board and ensure that those unsavoury scenes are not repeated.”
Millwall have done a lot to change their image over the past few years and it has been a painstaking ordeal for all. It’s a culture they’re trying to eradicate and that takes years open years. Sadly, for all the good that the club have done in trying to change their image, a select minority of their supporters constantly drag them through ditches.
As you can see from that video, the lot of them who are fighting are complete cowards. They aren’t tough, they aren’t clever and what happened at Wembley was an absolute disgrace. People who approach life with that attitude make me sick and hopefully, everybody caught on camera will find themselves banned from football for a long time and thrown in a prison. There’s no place for it in society and no place in our football stadiums. To see that young girl crying as people fought around her was horrific. I can only imagine it being my little brother and how he would feel, and it turns my heart to ice.
Send them to the Gulag.
