LUST claims Millwall supporters were taunting the visitors about the death of two Leeds fans in Istanbul in 2000 before and during Saturday's game, which Millwall won 2-0.

"Before kick-off, a section of the home crowd began chanting about the deaths of two Leeds United fans in Istanbul, Turkey," read a LUST statement.

"This was in full view of many stewards of Millwall Football Club and the Metropolitan Police. These chants are totally unacceptable and, in our opinion, caused alarm and distress to the Leeds fans within the ground.

"It is our opinion that offences under section five of the Public Order Act 1986 were being committed and ignored by officers of the Metropolitan Police.

"As a result of the inaction from stewards of Millwall Football Club and officers from the Metropolitan Police further chanting of a similar nature continued with other sections of the home support joining in, especially throughout the latter stages of the game where they were widespread throughout the ground.

"The Leeds United Supporters Trust will be taking strong action in the form of official complaints to both Millwall Football Club and the Metropolitan Police."

Leeds fans Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight both died after being stabbed during street clashes the night before Leeds played Galatasaray in a UEFA Cup semi-final in April 2000.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
