Far too short! More details needed.

Full story of neck-slashing

How did Ken Bates find out?

What was it like in the Directors' Box?

How did your missus react to Doug's chat-up lines?

plus lots more information!

You could do a new hoolie book to rival Martin King's. Just get Brimstone, Secbastia (where's he gone?) and Bluebeard together over a few pints and bingo!

ps & Lofty.

83/84 i think. Wall were well tooled up that night. Our player bobby issacs got slashed too. Me and 3 mates were on the train over, and this millwall fella on there sussed us as chelsea and said "be carefull cos they`ll be out for you tonight" Sure enough as we walked to the ground around 50 of south Londons finest armed with bricks ,umbrellas etc saw us. After a very brief introduction they decided we were all Chelsea and let us have it! Including matey from the train! :laugh2:

Great story, and really scary. Did Nigel Benn win his fight?

I remember feeling glad to get out of there alive that night, I was 17 and it was the first time I'd seen a knife being pulled out at a game, on a mate who was walking about 20 metres in front of us. Some of the police had been bought down from the miners strike to deal with the expected trouble, this didn't help us after the game as everyone was directed away from the old Kent road and we got lost. Millwall were attacking off the side streets, I remember a van reversing up and the doors flying open and 8 or so millwall jumping out with baseball bats, they didn't hang around for long though as they were well out numbered.
