He is, of course, a Millwall fan who sees the world in stereotypes (don't they all!) which are the recurring theme of nearly everything he writes. Class is one of these and football is another. I can never make out whether he is a working class boy with middle class guilt or a middle class boy striving for more left-wing street-cred. He was born in Abbey Wood and he has been a Millwall supporter since the age of seven, which was handy as the family left for Teeside when he was eight. That might also explain his penchant for having a go at us Charlton fans whenever he can. More guilt here I suspect, coming from Abbey Wood.
In todays edition, he pens a piece about how we are fiddling our gates to look like we doing better than we are (certainly better than Millwall's 6,000). No issue with that, I think we all feel similarly, however, he can't help himself from having a pop at the stay-aways who "went down the pub instead, or hung out on London Bridge station with their little notebooks and thermos flasks." Ho-ho, how funny and another great stereotype.
Well Rod, you reminded me of one of my favourites. The old analogy that your average Charlton fan knits his own scarf whereas the average Millwall fan sews his own mailbags. I know what I'd prefer everytime.
