I was there that day saw Bill for the first time .The Mile End seemed to be in charge from what I saw .
Those involved in the fighting that night before during and after the game,I would say were between the ages of 16 to 21.I doubt if any of them were Dockers, their dad might have been.Still urban myths and all that.

Re: Thank you
hello mr jones,i was there as well we were actually chased into the tunnel and the old bill had to turn off the electric current to stop us getting fried alive,the alternative was charging the millwall DOCKERS who chased us in there in the first place with their machetes/axes/baseball bats etc,it seemed like the lesser of 2 evils at the time.i know bill well,sat next to him since they opened the bobby lower back in the day,without doubt he's a top fella,lovely man book should be good.

Re: Thank you
Chim, in those days the Police were effectively Thatcher's private army. She came to power gave the Force a massive pay rise and they did her bidding in a most political way including seeing off the miners and supporting the Murdoch print works move.

Re: Thank you
I've only just made the time to watch this and fuck me I didn't expect it to be so moving.

My mum had severe mental problems (fortunately she only tried to strangle me with a broom handle!) and I was one of the Persil ticket herberts but although I skated around the periphery of the Mile End lot I was a bit too young to get really involved.

I also got swept up in the Thatcher bollocks, snatched at random at Chelsea away and charged with assaulting a police officer and affray. Immediately banned from West Ham without a day in court, signing on at 3PM every Saturday at East Ham nick and for nine months I was trying to fight my out of at least 2 years shovel for something I was totally innocent of.

By the time it got to court I was somehow 'at the front and seemingly in control of a large group of West Ham hooligans' and the lies the police told were fucking outrageous. To cap it all the arresting officer made himself out to be a proper hero 'apprehending' me and saving the public from a full-scale riot! What a cunt!

Fortunately my brief was on the ball and handed him his arse, picking his statement to bits and my pal's mum who was a magistrate stood as a character witness.

Interestingly, like Bill, I came away not relieved that I avoided prison but just angry and bitter. The judge said that I wasn't walking away as an innocent man, just that the prosecution didn't have quite enough evidence to convict me.

The only satisfaction I got was walking past the policeman as I left the court and saying quietly 'I hope you die horribly you scummy cunt'.

It doesn't surprise me that Bill's boy is a teacher and I've always been a bit disappointed that such a natural orator and force of nature hasn't had more of a positive influence within the club itself when so many toerags have set themselves up as the voice of the supporters.

How funny would it be to see Bill's face in the boardroom with Brady explaining the results of her latest customer satisfaction survey on a pie chart!

Re: Thank you
Watched this yesterday and found it both interesting and informative and perhaps a little sad..

I am few years older than you (BG) and kind of missed or rather side stepped the hooligan violence. Not that I think this video was just about that. More about the lack of love and the need for reognition.

At the start of 70s I was already 23 and use to watch what I considered the mindless kids charging about but never understood why. I now know that behind all the jumping up and down and posturing there was real violence at al level I couldn't cope with. Not that I was a shrinking violet.
When I went to football in the 70s I was part of a small group of young men who were confident to handle themselves in most situations. Be that fight or flee. But we never sought confrontation. And never knowingly had cause to be thankful to others looking after us.

Having listened to you (BG) and read Cass Pennant on the subject I am glad I was never involved. Does that mean I am not West Ham I really hope not.

Good luck with the book I will probably give it a read always willing to learn even at my age. (PS agree about Tottenham its an age thing)
