Pompey Millwall Riots?

Pompey Millwall Riots?


Millwall Pompey Riots?

On the 17th of April, Pompey will take a sell out crowd to the Valley in what will be a crucial away fixture. Many fans will get the coach, many will drive and many will get the train to the Valley.

There won’t be any violence on the coaches, maybe a few in the car but the train is a definite no no IF you don’t like violence.

The reason for this is that Portsmouth fans will travel to London Bridge and then change trains for Charlton. Millwall fans will also be boarding the train at London Bridge to head off to Southampton.

If you ask me (I know you didn’t) I think that this was a bit careless of the police. I have to say despite the warning of the riots unless you are ridiculously earlier (12-1) you won’t see any Millwall fans at all, seeing as any Millwall fan who is still at London Bridge come 2 O’clock will be late!

It wouldn’t surprise me that many Pompey fans do travel down early (pub). This could see repeats of the extreme violence in previous fixtures.

The backlash from Pompey fans could be seen when Millwall came to Portsmouth last time as there was thousands of Pompey fans waiting for Millwall after the game at the station. The main reason for this backlash was video footage showing some Millwall fans randomly attacking an innocent Pompey fan heading back to his car.

Although Millwall no longer contains so many football hooligans it is still possible that things could kick off a London Bridge.

This article is NOT to be mistaken for an article tying to stir up trouble but an article to warn people that may be considering travelling early that there may be violence.

Train will be fine, as it has been every London game this season, if you don't look for trouble you won't find it.
