Millwall ‘hooligans’ vandalise Selhurst Park and Crystal Palace training ground with messages ahead of the FA Cup tie on Saturday.
The two South London clubs will come face to face with their eyes on a place in the Fourth Round come kick off at 12:45pm and the game live on ITV.
Old rivals Millwall and Crystal Palace will face off for the first time in nine years and have not played each other since a goalless draw in the Championship in April 2013 but are now ready to renew their rivalry it would seem.
Millwall are currently eleventh in the Championship table and previously lost 3-2 at Bristol City on Sunday.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, are also eleventh in the Premier League following their defeat to West Ham last time out.
Now the two meet in Bermondsey and both sets of fans would dearly love to get one over their near neighbours.
Pictures have emerged overnight showing Millwall’s hooligan group leaving messages for Crystal Palace and their fans to read.
They were ‘Who the fuck are Palace?’, ‘Millwall Berserkers’ and ‘Nigels’ as can be seen in the photos…

Back in October 2021, Millwall FC decided to call the police after removing hooligans’ offensive stickers taunting Tottenham.
A “disgraceful” antisemitic poster was also put up by ‘Millwall Berserkers’ which was quickly taken down by the Championship outfit and reported to the British Transport Police.
Millwall condemned the sticker poster, which had the words ‘Achtung Juden’ [attention Jews, in German], along with the Tottenham Hotspur symbol, and blood.
The poster included the symbol of hooligan group, which has previously posted the neo-Nazi odal rune on its Instagram page, a Nazi-style eagle and death threats to the left.
After saying the poster had been removed from a cycle path by its stadium, near South Bermondsey station, Millwall said: “Millwall Football Club has a zero-tolerance policy against discrimination of any kind.
“This is a disgraceful action which the club immediately reported to the British Transport Police. Millwall will provide them with full and comprehensive cooperation with their investigation and any individual or group identified will be banned from the club for life.”
Millwall FC Supporters Club said it “abhors any such comment or content and that such material has not been produced or distributed by anyone with our knowledge. Whoever did so does not represent the Millwall fan base.”
Paula Griffin, who noticed the sticker and shared it onto social media, said she has got “used to some pretty nasty stickers that the club apparently seems fit to leave there… Seems to have reached a new level of hate when people in England feel they can post up such antisemitic stuff as this.”
