    Again, this, although we got the direct train home. New Cross was no fun, trust me.

    The whole week was edgy. Millwall had the East at the Goldstone but there were a load of them in the North. Every time we scored at home we invaded the pitch & they kicked off and we scored four times.

    We assumed everyone would turn up away but no one did. When they set fire to their programmes in their own end I was properly petrified. It was only 5 years after Bradford.

    The east was fine...we had a bit of banter with 'wall fans that day

    Stamford bridge when we had all the horrible stuff down at the goldstone. About 20 of us went in the shed. No point going in the away end. Very interesting after the game

      my first away day was 1972 at Portsmouth. We decided to go on the train early and arrived just after 11am. I wish I didn't bother going early. We were on our toes from the get-go. Managed to get back to the station and wait for reinforcements to arrive. We were still on our toes after a couple of specials coming in from Brighton. Me and a couple of mates even managed to get into their end thinking it was the away end. Luckily both teams had the same colour scarf. A baptism of fire but it didn't put me off going to away games.

      Was about to post this.

      The only time I've ever really been scared for my life at a football match.
      I was only 17 and just remember being kept in for ages and fires being lit in the home ends.
      You make me

      I would also like to throw in the 0-0 at White Hart Lane. 1978ish for consideration.

      48.000 at the game. They weren't taking prisoners that day.

      We had more than a few hundred that game, I seem to recall it was about 1500. I went back very early the following season, a warm late summer evening, and saw John Robinson get attacked by one of their fans, only for Mark Beeney to intervene. That was pretty lively afterwards too.
      We had 2,500 according to Brian Moore! However, it felt like we had 23 compared to that massive mob from Millwall.

      You didn't get on the train that got there at 11ish by chance. Silly move if you did!!

      Just to elaborate on this, getting there was pretty uneventful. I'd wrongly thought that having turned them over 4-1 in the first leg, they wouldn't be interested and we'd take over the place. Turning up, they had about 18,000 there while we had just a few hundred. Stood down near the front until a lump of concrete landed at my feet, so moved back a bit.

      I remember being quite pleased when they scored as they may lay attention to the game but we ended winning 2-1 and it turned into the most incredible atmosphere. I think John Robinson scored the 2nd and instead of celebrating turned round and ran back to the half way line.

      At the end of the game we were kept in for ages while they lit a bonfire in the stand to the left and burnt policeman's hats. When we finally got out we couldn't move anywhere. Hundreds of police and horses trying to get us to the station while anything the Millwall fans could get hold of came flying over the top. I had to nip down a side road as I needed to get back to London Bridge rather than a direct train back to Brighton that had been laid on, just stood in a corner while they ripped the train to pieces.

      Strange evening.
      I wasn't there but from TV highlights, didn't a Millwall fan jump on Robinson's back at some other point, at the touch line during the game?
