Millwall : Club Background

Millwall FC haven't been resident in Millwall since 1910. The club was founded as Millwall Rovers in 1885 by workers from a local food preserving factory, Morton's, though not a works team as such. The Isle of Dogs was a rural area well outside the boundaries of London until the explosion of the population in the 19th century swallowed it up, and saw the development of the docking complex needed to supply the then largest city in the World. Unsurprisingly Millwall's first nickname was The Dockers.

In its first quarter century the club moved around the Isle of Dogs but couldn't secure a permanent home, playing at four different venues during this time, and so in 1910 moved across the river and out of Millwall itself. The site they found at Cold Blow Lane in New Cross became The Den, presumably so named in recognition of the new nickname acquired around 1900 : The Lions. They remained there for 83 years. By the Seventies and Eighties Cold Blow Lane was one of the grimmest and most intimidating grounds in the country: a decaying sprawl of concrete terracing smothered with fencing and barbed wire, more reminiscent of wartime defenses than a football stadium. Yeovil's visit in 1975 as part of a great three match tussle to settle a Round One F.A. Cup tie was an experience I've never found a Glover who was there doesn't still recall vividly - fear is a major aide-memoire. Three years later location and attitude came together as one of the worst riots at a football ground in England broke out in and around The Den at an F.A. Cup quarter-final tie against Ipswich Town. Millwall's growing infamy seemed to be confirmed, at least amongst the small, in relative terms, village that is football supporters to attend games in the flesh. When the fixture lists came out fans of other clubs would look for the dates of the usual derbies, who they were playing first and last game of the season ........and when Millwall were coming to town, and when they had to go there. 'No one likes us - we don't care!'

Modern and well designed, the new stadium is only a quarter of a mile away from the old, but a world away in terms of facilities.

However worse was to come for the club. The depth of the tribalism, both good and ill, that dominates club football is mostly a mystery to the vast majority of less committed in the population - unless it hits their televisions (which generally is only the 'ill' aspect). In 1985 Millwall reached the quarter-finals of the F.A. Cup again, and were drawn against Luton Town. All sorts of things came together on that evening at Kenilworth Road, but the end result was that what the millions of viewers saw on their screens was appalling mayhem and violence, with 81 people hospitalised, including 31 policemen, one of whom had had to be revived on the pitch as the battle raged around him after his heart stopped when his skull was battered with a concrete block. The sickness that had increasingly spread through football for a decade and a half was laid bare and, fairly or unfairly, the club that became synonymous with it in the mind of Joe Public was Millwall that night.

Some things become seared into consciousness, and more than twenty years on, despite huge efforts by the club, the authorities in the area, and most of the fans themselves, Millwall still bears a stigma. In the meantine they have moved about a quarter of a mile northwards, the new ground opening in 1993. The all-seater stadium and aforementioned efforts to clean up their act, together with intensive security and policing, means Millwall is a much less risky place for visiting fans these days. Inside the ground it's as safe as anywhere else. However we would advise people to remember that this is still a tough area of London, and common sense and discretion is the order of the day around the locality. If you are behaving like a plonker or looking for trouble you can most surely find it, and there'll not be a lot of sympathy if it turns out you've stirred up a damned sight more than you can handle.

On the pitch Millwall have traditionally been one of London's poor relations to the glamour end of the market like Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs. Even the middle ranking clubs such as Crystal Palace, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers have generally done better. Millwall played in the Southern League until 1920 when they joined the Football League as founder members of Division Three. They had two promotions to Division Two, from 1928 to 1934, and again in 1938. The second spell was of course interrupted by the War, in which The Den suffered badly. Close to one of Germany's main targets, the docks, it was unlikely to remain unscathed, and indeed suffered some serious bomb damage. However the worst happened accidentally when the main stand caught fire during a wartime football match and burnt to the ground. After the War the club struggled, was relegated in 1948 and then placed in the Fourth Division when the lower reaches of the Football League were reorganised in 1958. The Sixties and Seventies were something of a yo-yo period as the club bobbed up and down between divisions, but the Eighties saw their best days on the pitch, culminating in them reaching the top flight for the first, and so far only, time in their history in 1988. They finished tenth in their first season, but couldn't sustain it and were relegated the next. The legacy of the financial burden of developing the new ground combined with further relegation to the third flight in 1996 saw the club entering administration the following year.

No one is going to claim The Den is a friendly venue for visiting fans, but the new stadium is well appointed.

Theo Paphitis rescued the club and became chairman. There was a first Wembley appearance in the Auto-Windscreens Shield Final in 1999, where they lost to Wigan Athletic, and then in 2000-01 they won the Division Two title. In 2004 the Lions were completely unexpected F.A. Cup finalists. Although duly and comfortably beaten by Manchester United it was the single greatest day out in the club's history. And it meant they were in European competition the next season.

Fans were optimistic that the team would move forward, but the exact opposite happened. Paphitis stepped down as chairman and the club seemed to lose the plot. Dennis Wise resigned after the last game of the 2004-05 season and new chairman Jeff Burnige appointed former player Steve Claridge as his successor to Wise. But neither chairman nor manager lasted, as Millwall plunged into boardroom chaos. Claridge was hoofed out by the new regime without seeing a ball kicked in anger. Colin Lee replaced him, but he'd been booted upstairs to a Director of Football role by Christmas, and his assistant Dave Tuttle took the reins. Things got no better and Millwall were already doomed when Alan McLeary took temporary charge as the fifth manager in less than a year for the final two games of the season. Millwall were also changing their chairmen nearly as frequently as their managers, with Stewart Till taking over just after their relegation out of the Championship.

For their arrival into League One, Nigel Spackman was given the honour. Legend has it that a certain Russell Slade was being lined up as Spackman's assistant until the big man himself chose the slightly more attractive surroundings of South Somerset. Spackman's brief reign was not a good one. Millwall plummeted to the foot of League One despite being one of the pre-season 2006-07 favourites, and it only took until September before the panic button was firmly hit and Willie Donachie took over. Donachie managed to slowly drag the Lions off the foot of the table and by the end of the season they were in a pretty respectable state. Another 10 games and they probably would have been nudging the playoffs.

All of this meant that come the start of the 2007-08 season they were one of the hot favourites for promotion. However, a spot of deja vu was to occur again. Having sold off Darren Byfield and Marvin Elliott to Bristol City, plus Marvin Williams to Yeovil Town, the old problems returned and yet again they were bottom of the table. No sentiment was shown to Donachie and just over a year after his arrival, he was gone.

Millwall's tactic was to take their time over their latest appointment. And they certainly did that as Glovers fans would well know. Over a month went by whilst hunting for Donachie's successor, and three bids were made to Huish Park as they attempted to nobble Russell Slade up the road. Despite murmurings from the odd unofficial Millwall websites of "done deals" it appears it never even got off first base - the Yeovil board batted the offers straight back to the New Den with a "thanks but no thanks" attached to it. Instead Millwall had to turn to former Swansea city manager Kenny Jackett - by then Manchester City's Reserve Team manager, and rather laughably adopt a "he was always our Number One choice" air to the situation.

After the previous chaos, Jackett managed a 17th placed finish come May 2008. Meanwhile Millwall had changed ownership and chairman yet again - American John Berlyson coming into the hot seat - during his early years he reputedly put around 8 million into the club. Whatever the truth of the sum, it seems unlikely to be a complete coincidence that Millwall's fortunes on the pitch appear to be on the up again. In 2008-09 they had a run in the F.A. Cup until knocked out by Premier League Hull City in the Fourth Round, and made the play-offs in the league. Hatches were battened down and security was out in force as Millwall clashed with (and beat) Leeds United in the semi-finals, only to then surprisingly fall at the final hurdle at Wembley to unfancied Scunthorpe United.

Whilst they narrowly failed in 2008-09, the following season saw them climb upwards. Again they landed in the play-off slots, having finished third in the table, but this time they managed to find their way past Huddersfield Town in the semi-finals, with Swindon Town defeated by a Paul Robinson goal at Wembley Stadium. Since then they've established themselves fairly well at second tier level, albeit on gradually diminishing terms, finishing 9th (2010-11), 16th (2011-12) and 20th (2012-13). This summer though sees them step into the great unknown, with Kenny Jackett willing to drop a division to manage Wolverhampton Wanderers after nearly six years at the New Den, leaving 39 year old former St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas as the man at the helm - we will give him his first competitive game in charge of the Lions.

Manager : Steve Lomas

Capacity : 20,146

Colours : shirt blue with white trim, shorts white with blue trim, socks blue with white trim
Record Attendance : (at this stadium) 20,093 v Arsenal, FAC R3, 10th January 1994
Nickname : The Lions
Ticket Prices : The away area is the North Stand. This is a behind-the-goal location, with 2,300 seats in the Upper Tier usually allocated. The Lower Tier holds another 1,500, but won't be required for our visit. Entrance is via turnstiles D31 - D36. We've been given an initial allocation of 1,000 tickets at the Huish Park Ticket Office, but we'd be surprised if more weren't made available if we pushed that number.

Prices for the 2013-14 season are : Adult 23.00; Over-60s: ; Under-16 10.00; Under-12s: 5.00. Tickets can be bought in advance from Huish Park Ticket Office, or from the North Stand Ticket Office at the New Den on the day of the game. There is no price difference between advance and walk-up purchase.

Disabled Info: There is only 1 (ONE) car park space provided for disabled away supporters at the Stadium. Wheelchair using supporters have priority. Millwall currently don't list a Disabled Liaison Officer, pointing out that the previous incumbent 'recently' (July 2012 but never since updated) retired and that they were awaiting a replacement. For now email tickets@millwallplc.com. E-mail can be used for enquiries but for booking only telephone calls are accepted: 0207 740 0512 or 0844 826 2004. If the single space has gone the club issues drop off letters. Disabled supporters can be driven or drive themselves to the stadium and exit the vehicle whilst in the stadium car park. However the car must then leave the area to park elsewhere.

The designated area for both home and away supporters in wheelchairs is located in the West (Main) Stand Lower Tier. There are 78 wheelchair positions each with a seat for a Personal Assistant. Access through gates W1 or W14, with a lift then available. However, there is also an away supporters area with 17 spaces at the front of the Lower North Stand. Whilst this area is at pitch level, and there is the risk of being hit by the ball or getting wet if it rains, the feedback from away supporters is that the Lower North Stand is the preferred option (say Millwall). Well we never, away fans prefer to be in proximity to their fellow supporters, even if the conditions are poor? Who'd have thought ......... Access is through gate W1 or W14 for the West Stand facilities.

One Personal Assistant is admitted free with each wheelchair user. The PA must obtain the relevant ticket from the Ticket Office, sit with the wheelchair user throughout to provide support and service to them and enable them to access facilities. There are 3 designated toilets at either end of the wheelchair platform of the Lower West Stand and one designated toilet for the Lower North Stand. By the sounds of it, for the catering facilities send someone along to buy for you, they don't appear very disabled friendly.

Visually impaired supporters can purchase tickets for all parts of the stadium so long as they can get to and from their chosen seat without difficulty. Visually impaired supporters that wish to bring a PA can do so and the PA will be admitted free so long as the seating in the disabled areas in the Lower West Stand or the Lower North Stand (if away supporters) is used. Guide dogs are not admitted.

Millwall advise contacting the club prior to booking to sort out possible issues.

Millwall : Directions To The Ground
General

As mentioned in the club background (above) Millwall FC isn't in Millwall. We claim no expertise on the exact borders of London districts, but think The Den is just in South Bermondsey. For various reasons Millwall Football Club tries to push the idea that visiting fans only come on official coaches. Of course in the real world this is entirely impractical, despite some police forces around the country completely overstepping commonsense (and probably their legal powers) and trying to make that compulsory for games between certain clubs in recent seasons. Not only do many fans want and prefer to travel independently, but large minorities of fans no longer live anywhere near the club they support, and official coaches are of no use at all to them.

By Road

Those driving will be mostly coming into London on either the M3 or the M4. You are then looking for the delight that is the South Circular.

If using the M4 go right to the end (Junction 1, Brentford) and then take the A205 over Kew Bridge. This is the South Circular. Follow signs for Clapham. Don't panic when the A205 suddenly becomes the A3. Do panic if you've passed Clapham Common and it hasn't gone back to being the A205 - you are lost. Keep grinding along the South Circular past our old Isthmian friends in Dulwich until you reach Catford and Lewisham. Turn left on to the A21. This will take you through Lewisham. At the second roundabout take the A20 exit signed for the likes of Peckham (of Del Boy fame). Before Peckham you reach New Cross. Because of the one way system you can't turn direct off the A20 onto the A2 Old Kent Road (of Monopoly fame). Follow signs for Surrey Quays and turn right along Kender Street. At the top turn left into Old Kent Road, then right at the turning signposted "Car Pound" into Ilderton Road. Zampa Road is the 7th turning on the right.

If coming in on the M3 you have two choices. Come off the end of the motorway and take the A316 through Hanworth, Twickenham and Richmond until it becomes the A307 and then hits the South Circular at Kew. Or drop off the M3 at Junction 2 and take the M25 round to the M4 at Junction 4 and come in as above. Which ever option you choose it'll doubtless transpire to be the wrong one as you sit in stationary traffic.

Parking

There is no parking available at the stadium. On-street anywhere in inner London is problematic, with permit schemes all over the place. Take care if you don't wish closer acquaintance with the Car Pound mentioned above - parking restrictions in London are enforced with zeal. There must be commercial car parking somewhere in the area, but in line with their 'come by coach' policy Millwall avoid mentioning it. No need to worry about congestion charging though, as this area is well outside the Zone.

By Rail

South Bermondsey is the nearest railway station, with a few minutes walk in a generally South-East direction to the stadium. As an away fan you should get funnelled into the special fenced walkway that is in place direct from the station to the visitors end on matchdays - you literally get segregated shortly after leaving the station, with home fans going one way, and away fans going another way. However on a more recent visit we were turned away and made to take a long walk around the ground mixed in with all the home fans. There were no signs present to show directions to the away end via this route, and for obvious reasons one was a little reluctant to start asking the home support.

To make the journey to South Bermondsey you need to get to London Bridge. The Southern Railway service runs approximately every 10 minutes on weekday evenings. Journey time is four minutes.

For those wanting to make a day out in London of the trip the first departure from Yeovil Junction is at 06.20. If making the whole journey by mainline once at Waterloo you will need to walk across to Waterloo East, catch a train to London Bridge, and there change for South Bermondsey. Total time in trains for the trip from Waterloo to South Bermondsey is 8 minutes, but you should allow around three-quarters of an hour journey time to be on the safe side. You could also hop off early at Clapham Junction and go via Peckham Rye to get to South Bermondsey (or perhaps consider getting off at Surrey Quays - see below).

There are only minor planned outages on the London Underground network for our 2013-14 visit. This will only affect you if you were planning on parking up close to one of the Metropolitan Line stations in North-West London between Uxbridge and Wembley Park - that line is out on the day. Otherwise you should have a free run on the network.

Link: Transport For London.

The Den isn't particularly convenient for Underground Stations. The nearest option is Canada Water (in Zone 2, and about 20 minutes walk from the ground) which is on the Jubilee Line, which connects it to Waterloo - an eight minute journey. Other options include the London Overground (a rebranding of a number of local train services) where you will find that Surrey Quays and New Cross Gate are both approximately 15 minutes walk away. The Surrey Quays option is relevant if you change at Clapham Junction as you can get direct trains from there.

By Bus

The Nos. 21, 53 and 172 trawl Old Kent Road, the P12 goes up Ilderton Road, Nos. 1 and 381 along Rotherhithe New Road, and the 47, 188, 225 serve Surrey Quays.

Taxis

It's a bit of an urban myth that Black Cabs hold to the rule : 'Sarf of the River, guv? Not on yer nellie!' However it is true to say that should you require a taxi to depart the area you are unlikely to fall over many touting for hire. So here's a few local mini-cab numbers should you be in need:
Alma Cars 020 7237 1817
Downtown Cars 020 7237 2626
Star Cars 020 7231 1234
We give no assurances about the quality of service or rates charged. If you expect the former to be low and the latter high you won't be so disappointed when they are.

Millwall Independent Supporters Association
When last reviewed this site appeared to have ground to a halt. However it has come back to life again since. Carries match reports and various other features.


Millwall MAD
Millwall's MAD site. OK news page, but most of the rest appears to be the bulk standard franchise features.


Millwall Online
Vital franchise site.


Millwall Supporters Club
The website of the Official Millwall Supporters Club. Fairly comprehensive site that looks to be regularly updated. Found the frame design to be rather irksome - the menu pulldowns get hidden on my screen because there is not enough room left on the top frame. Contains all the usual supporters club constitution and membership info. One or two of the features appear to be a little obscure but hopefully make sense to Millwall supporters - for example does anyone know what FOTB is all about? The chances are non-Millwall fans or more casual Lions supporters will struggle here to make sense of some of this.


Official Millwall Internet Site
PTV site, registration required. Appears to be one of the more regularly updated ones.


The Lions Trust
Home of the Millwall Supporters Trust. They say they collectively own or act as proxy voters for over three million Millwall shares. If you're a Millwall fan this is doubtless a very useful resource. All non-Millwall supporters should probably go elsewhere.


The Millwall History Files
Won't be everybody's cup of tea, but this is the sort of site I like: different from the norm. A bit of a curate's egg and mish mash, with some aspects and periods covered in serious depth, and others - notably the Inter-War period - getting very little, if you are interested in the history of football clubs you could find yourself doing a lot of reading. I am, and I did.

Millwall : Food & Drink

General:

The general opinion is that it is not advisable for away fans to drink in any of the pubs near the ground on matchdays. We do not recommend any pubs in the vicinity of the ground. If you are going by coach the police will not let you wander off from the stadium even should you so want to. You will be directed straight into the ground where there is that facility beloved of football stadia: the downmarket lager and downmarket keg beer dished up in plastic cups.

For those making their own way our advice is to visit one of your preferred hostelries elsewhere in London that is on a convenient public transport route for The New Den, and eat and drink there, leaving your departure as late as is sensible. If you don't know the city well enough to have stockpiled a list there are some perfectly good outlets around Waterloo and London Bridge.

Club Bar :

See above. There's a bar at the back of the stand serving fizzy yellow stuff in plastic cups - enjoy. Food is the standard football stadium fare. The chicken and chips is supposedly better than the norm.

Local Pubs :

Barrowboy and Banker: Located on the south side of London Bridge, and opposite the side road that leads out of London Bridge station. This is a large Fullers pub, with great inner decor - obviously most of the Fullers real ale range is covered. The main disadvantage to this one is the very high (even for central London) prices - don't be too surprised if your pint costs over 4.00. They also do food, which again is priced at the high end of the scale, with a basic main dish around the 10.00 mark - probably the main reason why they get away with these prices is that it's an easy location for City folk on weekdays. Opening hours are 12.00 noon - 11.30p.m. on a Saturday and 12.00 noon until 6.00p.m. on a Sunday. Weekday hours are 11.00a.m. - 11.00p.m. except Fridays when they get an extra half hour extension.
Barrowboy and Banker, 6-8 Borough High Street, London Bridge, London, SE1 9QQ. Tel: 02074035415. Email: barrow@fullers.co.uk. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Hobgoblin: Next to New Cross Gate station and about 15-20 minutes walk from the ground, and therefore far enough away from most home football types, but just about close enough to walk into the ground. Part of the Wychwood Brewery which produces Hobgoblin real ales. The pub does food, as well as having two big screens for showing Sky Sports stuff. Generally attracts students from the nearby Goldsmiths College during the week.
Hobgoblin, 272 New Cross Road, New Cross, London, SE14 6AA. Tel: 02086923193. Map: Click Here.

Hole In The Wall: A good stopover for those coming in by train from Waterloo, but don't want to head direct to the ground. Its name becomes obvious once you see where the pub is - set deep into the heart of one of Waterloo's arches just outside the main station entrance - you can even feel the rumble of the trains as they pass over your head inside the pub. Two bar pub, which is an old-fashioned London boozer - no real frills here, but as a means of filling time it's a convenient location. Usually has a couple of real ales on - such as Sharp's Doombar and Green King IPA and Abbot as well as usually a few others from Ringwood and Adams. Also serves food from the rear bar.
Hole In The Wall, 5 Mepham Street, Waterloo Station,, Southwark, London, SE1 8SQ. Tel: 02079286196. Map: Click Here.

Market Porter: One of the best real pubs in the area of London Bridge station. Hidden slightly in the middle of the nearby Borough Market, this is a traditional London pub with around nine real ales. It was also used as the Third Hand Book Emporium in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The beer range is outstanding - the only down side is that their main bar menu is not available on a Saturday - they keep an upstairs restaurant open for food, but be warned that these are genuine restaurant prices. Expect the pub to be very busy, and to usually spill out onto the pavements outside. Opening hours 12.00 noon until 11.00p.m. on a Saturday, with an hour earlier on Monday - Friday. On Sundays they stop serving beer at 10.30p.m.
Market Porter, 9 Stoney Street, Borough Market, London Bridge, London, SE1 9AA. Tel: 02074072495. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

New Cross House: Halfway between New Cross Gate and New Cross stations. About 15-20 minutes walk from the ground and so far enough from the New Den where hopefully things will be a little quieter. Used to be known as the Goldsmiths Tavern, and has existed in its current form since May 2011. The pub does four real ales - from the looks of their website they concentrate on the obscure rather than the mainstream: "Weasel and Bonobo from the Florence microbrewery, which is part of the Capital Pub Company, Adnams Mayday beer, and Atlantic IPA from Sharps". In terms of food, they specialise in their own pizzas and a number of their other dishes have a bit of an Italian flavour to them, although there's steak burgers and hotdogs for those who want other grub. Opening hours from 12.00 noon until 12.00 midnight, except for Friday and Saturday nights when they have a one hour late extension.
New Cross House, 316 New Cross Road, New Cross, London, SE14 6AF. Tel: 02086918875. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.


Likelihood the Natives Will Understand You :

The residents would like to think they are characters out of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Of course 99% of them actually lead mundane lives just like the rest of us working in factories, shops and offices.

Top-Tip :

In the words of Sgt. Phil Esterhaus: "Let's be careful out there."

Other Points Of Interest

For those that like their football grounds in 'traditional' venues, The Den should suit. Surrounded on three sides by railway lines, there's also a canal running down one side, as well as a power station, gas works and municipal recycling centre nearby. No Leisure and Retail Park location this. London may be by far and away the major tourist centre of Great Britain, but not in this part of SE16 it isn't. This is an area of the city that few outsiders visit.
