Now the thing is that I am getting rather fed up with all of this talk about the debacle of Tuesday night, but I have read articles this morning about West Ham fans have no right to complain about the taunts that were aimed at poor young Jack Collison (or to that effect, but the Pat Lampard thing was down to a handful of mindless idiots, just like those handful of Millwall fans who taunted Collison.

The difference is that many a true West Ham fan and the club itself came out and condemn those idiots who sung those chants about Pat Lampard and I dare say that there are a vast majority of true Millwall fans that would condemn the Jack Collison taunts, although I haven't heard or read any condemnations as yet, whereas that idiot of a Millwall captain Neil Harris seems to think that the Millwall fans behaved impeccably.

You can't go around blaming a club and it's whole fan base for the mindless actions of a few idiots, that's just as out of order in my book.
