    The final word for Collison absolutely made this article for me. Glad it was added in.

    Future League Cup draws should be manipulated so this fixture (at least) cannot happen again. A midweek evening is a ludicrously dangerous time for such a match, surely, and the police can’t move a League Cup match outside a midweek evening…

    I came to read about Sol Campbell but am fascinated to read you have what I’m sure is a fine moustache.

  3. How beleaguered is this competition now?, with not only West Ham and Millwall fans disgracing us all, but Swansea City’s discipline providing lowlights from last night. A potential solution could be to invite Scottish clubs to take part to liven it up a bit. Your point about the logistics of preventing hooliganism in London is well made although I suspect many of those responsible have travelled in from Essex and Kent.

    There was a delightful piece of irony during Sky Sports News coverage of the game. Phil Thompson, who was “analysing” the game droned long and hard on the despicable scenes and how we had “got rid of this in our game”, this was backed up sexual deviant Paul Jewell and the bloke who isn’t Jeff Stelling. Cut to commercial break and what’s the second advert in – why it’s Fila casual-clad hooligan flick “The Firm”.

  5. Martin says:

    Fixing the draw to prevent such matches would be a victory for these pitiful idiots.

    Ban them from all grounds and provide enough resources to enforce it.

  6. Neil says:

    Have Millwall FC released their traditional statement about ‘the media tarring Millwall with the hooligan brush’ yet?

  7. Michael Wood says:

    “sexual deviant Paul Jewell”

    Round my neck of the woods having sex with a woman is not really considered an act of sexual deviancy.

  8. Sp3ktor says:

    In the woods? Like a dogger?

    The filthy sod.

  9. John A says:

    Paul Jewel is possibly the worst pundit I’ve ever seen. He looks half asleep and has the air of a sulky teenager.

  10. Luke Rowe says:

    I don’t wanna turn this fairly levelled head piece into a discussion about dogging, but well.. I don’t see anything too wrong about dogging, We shouldn’t be so quick to attack people for they’re sexual kinks, having sex in the woods with a stranger is not THAT deviant, as long as kids or animals aren’t involved and everyone in agreement and its fairly discreet, whats the problem?

    Whats the kinkiest thing Sp3ktor has ever done?.. or thought .. or shook one off too..?

    As for the yobbos?.. they’re so derivative, its all so 1985 darlings, its like Oasis compared to New Order… I suggest a paintballing weekend or a nice long ride on a bike for all Cockney Wankers involved, or weed.. drop some weed on these kids, take some of that coke of them.. and they dress so bad too.. .. God! what to do with them!

    […] There is nothing more than you can say about those who got involved in a night where nobody, bar, as twohundredpercent note, Jack Collison, the young West Ham midfielder playing on after the death of his father, emerged […]

    […] Match Of The Midweek: West Ham United 3-1 Millwall “The League Cup Second Round is probably the least inspiring week of the early part of the new season. In front of swathes of empty tip-up seats, youth and reserve team players half-heartedly play out matches that no-one really wants to be involved in. On the pitch tonight, West Ham United won this match. After falling behind to a first half goal, West Ham took until three minutes from what should have been the end of normal time before finding an equaliser before winning the match with two goals in extra time.” (twohundredpercent) […]
