    Yes,with Millwalls`Fan Base being New Cross along the Thames Eastwards.It does not really make any sense,but if you have been to the Game(between the Clubs),it is very Hostile-even now.I have been to a few and Green Street has been practically a no-go Area for peaceful Fans.On Match Day you expect problems!

    Jeez, I used to go to the Den wearing a Blackpool scarf just for the hell of it. I must have been barmy.

    The last time i was in Green Street, I was the only White bloke along the whole road, I was driving at the time, :D

    The only time the Whites can claim back the area is for a couple of hours on match days, fcuking sad.

    I was called an "Upton Park Joe Daki "by some Arsenal Fans once. Bloody Insult-but true what you say Roy.When I lived there there was more Black than there is now.Bloody hell,used to go to the Queens at night and to the Wine Bar behind-no problems.Many a time I have walked from the Barking Road(Night Bus) and had a Tea at the Coffee Stall,about 3 am.Would not do that now.

    Which reminds me, I just found some pics of an old mate of mine from the Blackpool mods. He was a schoolboy signing for Blackpool in '68. The pics below are from the 70-71 season I think. His name's Steve Harrison...

    ... and last I heard he was caretaker manager of Coventry City in 2011. Just saying.

    He was at the last party I went to in Blackpool, when I made the trip up from London.

    What's the deal with those high-top trainers? Wrestling boots? Were they a skin/suede thing at all or just general early 70s style? I've noticed a lot of UK bands of that era wearing them, like in this photo of Crushed Butler:

    I have something similar from YMC that I got heavily discounted, don't wear very often though.

    I think it was because a load of them knew me and knew I was doing it for a laugh. I only did it twice.

    Selhurst Park was a different matter. I could have gone there with a sky-blue-pink scarf. ;) :D

    Interesting mix of Harringtons, monkeys, and jean-jackets.

    On the football firms aspect, there are some interesting cooperation events that have happened. Back in the late 80s one of my younger brothers was one of the Top Boys at QPR, they were due to meet the much bigger Stoke at home in an FA Cup match, and for those who don't know, Stoke are nasty, they are bascially the Millwall of the Midlands, and so QPR were looking at a real hiding. Now Stoke and West Ham have always been bitter enemies, and they'd had a major run-in shortly before this QPR v Stoke match, so my brother who knows Cas Pennant invited the ICF to said QPR v Stoke match at Loftus Road and the rest is history. As a thank you gesture, my brother and his QPR firm invited Cas and the ICF to a QPR piss-up a few weeks later.
