Looking forward to playing in front of crowds of under 500 in future :lol:



Calling a referee bent is not homophobic.

Yes it is, if he is straight!

Whether he's straight or not is irrelevant.

Pretty obvious it is otherwise why would the club make the statment.

Alleged. Did you miss that part?

It is alleged (and witnesses have confirmed) the referee was called bent by a single spectator.

It was not racist or homophobic.

Impossible for you to tell from here, since it would depend on the context.

Witness statements from those at the New Den would probably be "no comment" :wink:

I know the context. Any Londoner knows the meaning of the word.

Just another example of us being hated. :D

Millwall Football Club wishes to update its supporters with the latest information surrounding allegations of homophobic mass chanting during the victory over Reading at The Den on Saturday 18th January 2020.

The club instigated an immediate investigation into the allegations which has been every bit as thorough and exhaustive as is appropriate in such circumstances.

Despite this comprehensive investigation, however, no evidence has come to light to substantiate the allegations.


The club was immensely disappointed by the media coverage of this incident and was especially outraged by outlets whose use of language implied guilt before any facts were established. Such blatant misreporting is extremely harmful to the reputation of its supporters and to the efforts of the entire football family in fighting all forms of discrimination. The club has already received apologies from some of the news organisations concerned and now anticipates similarly widespread reporting of this outcome to its investigation into the matter.

Millwall would like to thank fans for their outstanding ongoing support both on and off the pitch.

How do fans support them on the pitch? Isn't that illegal?

No evidence of racism found in the spurs v chelsea game. That's 2 games now that have been stopped in England for "abuse" and both have found no evidence of it happening.

So either, it's all been covered up or people are lying to get breaks in games, other clubs in trouble etc.

They might not be lying, it's what they think they hear and I suspect that, if you've been the subject of racism all your life, you're more attuned to those sorts of comments. We all know it goes on in society, so it would be naive to think football doesn't have its share, but not easy to pin down those responsible in a big crowd.
