The Fulham ticket office has been ringing up Fulham fans sitting at the Putney End suggesting they might like to relocate for the Millwall game! Could be the biggest away contingent we've seen at the Cottage for some time.
And I'm sure they'll uphold the finest traditions of behaviour and courtesy we've come to expect from the Millwall following.
We can throw them some bricks to chew on

It is surely now time to segregate the Putney End?!
We no longer have the 'lure' of Premier League football to sell to tourists and neutrals.
So let's stop giving any well supported or London based team the huge, near home, advantage of having what inevitably becomes an entire stand to themselves!!

They shouldn't be segregated....they should be caged

why not look at it as a good day out noisy, passionate sets of fans (both clubs)many millwall coming because one its a london meeting and we actually respect your club,
despite the biased reports on millwall we dont go beating up shirters/scarfers thats more the vermin.
i for one am looking forward to coming to a stadium and sets of fans with a great history and tradition.
welcome to the championship.

Never seen Millwall 1st hand so im gonna go with my two boys with an open mind hoping that the fans behave themselves..
One thing i am concerned about is that the Millwall fans seem to be buying a massive contingent of seats in the so called nuetral zone?? The Nuetral zone and the family zone are literally a stones throw from each other, if its gonna kick off then it will right in front of so many kids eye's and they will be 1st in line for the assault!
All the fans can come on here and attack us for being posh. polite, quiet... etc... etc...
What we are is proper football fans, win lose or draw i havnt seen one piece of aggravation at the ground in ten years, its the best ground in the country to bring your kids too, sure there are always idiots who away from the ground find a place to have a scrap but as long as they stay away from me and mine i couldnt give a shit who they are fighting with.
I go with an open mid to the game, i hope i come out thinking what was all the fuss about but honestly if we put three or four past them im dreading the walk outside the stadium!
Think we will also have the same problem with Leeds when they come to town as well especially as they seem to have taken offence at our purchase of McCormack!

@PETER JAMES well i hope you never return to the cottage you wet blanket.
you sound like one of these fans everyone abuses us for. rich/posh thumb in mouth types sit in seat say nothing types who loves the sky sports dominance of english football regarding the piss pot that is the premiership. i cant wait to see the lower league clubs come to our ground, working class fans who will bring a bit of Atmosphere. being the area we live its a shame so many of our club are just like you. be good and choke on that silver spoon and ask yourself at the end of the season why you did not attend any games when we get promoted back to the top flight.

Don't follow lower league football? Surprised you bothered watching Fulham at all given the frequency of our lower league style performances over the last 12 years! With the exception of the Europa dream year, by far the best season I have enjoyed at the club was being champions of the old Division 1, the year we earned promotion to the Premiership. The football was slick, the 5-0 hammering of Watford a joy to behold and such a great atmosphere!

Adam, I have seen Millwall first hand but that was in the 70s and things have changed quite a bit since then happily. I don't get to The Cottage too often living in Sydney but I did manage a game a couple of seasons ago with my son. I sat in the Hammy End and there was a father with two small children in front of me. There might not have been any agro but the language was disgraceful. Why anyone feels the need to scream Fs & Cs at the top of their voice with wives and children in close proximity I will never know. I certainly wouldn't take my kids along which is very sad. My son was 20+ by then so it didn't really matter, but I was totally embarrassed for the guy in front of me. Perhaps I'm just getting old...

It's stunning that you can make a complaint about bad language around kids and nothing is done about it. I had a total tosser near us who my kids nicknamed Mr Angry as he used to rant and swear so much. He one day shouted, "F you Ronaldo you dago C!" I turned and said, " he might be an effin C, but leave the racist comments out of it!" He told me to F off so I laughed and told a steward about the racist comment. Two minutes later he was escorted out of his seat by a dozen stewards, arrested and later had his day in court, to no avail as the only witness they produced was me. My word against his! Still at least he was banned from the ground until the court case which was a third of the season! The more we make a stand, the more chance there is that things will change!
