Thread: Embarrassing post on Facebook Re our captain at Millwall

    Default Embarrassing post on Facebook Re our captain at Millwall

    The fact that a post explaining how the captain of Southend United showed his support for WHU at Millwall and the fact that it is a West Ham post "liked" by Shrimpers leaves me aghast. Add to that comments left by Southend United fans glorifying in singing "Millwall run from West Ham"...UNBELIVABLE.
    For years we have had to put up with comments about being plastic Hammers and then - at Millwall of all places - we humiliate our support by proving the bloody point!

    They had been giving it large all day, including racial abuse. So it was not showing support for WHU, more a case of **** off you ignorant bunch of *****.

    In fairness to Millwall that was only one section of their support. A few of us went in a local pub to watch the Rugby and were treated well. Had a good chat with a very sensible Millwall lad and his mates

    BUt how does it look to Millwall and their supporters (good and bad)?? In effect we sang "gonna get my big bruvver on to you". Honestly how sad do we look? Sing nothing back to wind them up...or sing something about our club.

    Spot on Kev. We hate west ham, we have to put up with them invading our area, cheering on their team in our pubs. They even opened a shop in our high street FFS. It's embarrassing that our captain has done this and even more embarrassing that some of our so-called fans are condoning it. Some people need to brush up on their history.

    I understand why he did it, but that doesn't make it right and I won't be spending any time trying to justify his actions. If you don't see anything wrong with it then you are severely blinkered. As for our fans likening the post, I'm lost for words

    Couldn't care less to be honest who Anton shows his support for, as long as he gives his all on the pitch for us when in a Southend shirt, that is enough for me.

    He hasn't done it in any other match, so draw your own conclusions from that!

    I cannot imagine Wayne Rooney captaining Manchester United at Anfield, getting the abuse he expects and then turn to The Kop and give an Everton gesture. He would instead probably do the badge bit
    .he would realise that despite his support of Everton - he is captain of Man Utd.

    To be fair it would have been bloody difficult to have produced the Essex flag, a shrimp, waves and a football in response to the abuse he had to endure.

    The football should have been easy enough!

    I've got to say, I was a bit miffed with this action.

    Totally agree with the opening post. As a professional footballer, he shouldn't react - even though what was on the end of was nasty, personal vile and wholly unpleasant. I don't want to see the captain of Southend United making West Ham United gestures. Ever.

    I genuinely think I'd struggle to care less.
