Mother of Leeds fan killed in Turkey contacted Millwall

THE mother of a Leeds fan who was murdered in Turkey made a personal phone call of complaint after his death was mocked at Millwall last season, chief executive Andy Ambler has revealed.

Four people were handed lifetime bans from the The Den in April 2011 as a result of what the club described as "deplorable" chanting.

The Lions have issued a statement in advance of Saturday's fixture in a bid to stamp out the taunts.

"Last season it was pretty bad – probably the worst we've had," Ambler told Lions Live.

"We had people coming into the ground handing out photocopies of Turkish flags. It got out of hand.

"The number of complaints we received – from Leeds United, people inside the ground and local MPs – was the highest we'd ever had.

"We took a call from the mother of one of the two lads who was murdered out in Turkey and that was a really difficult call for us to take.

"People say Leeds fans chant to Manchester United fans about Munich but two wrongs do not make a right and I hope we support the club properly."

    So it appears it's Ok for leeds fans to sing songs about Ian Tomlinson and the bloke that got stabbed attending the Ferencvaros Uefa cup match or doesn't that count or will Leeds fans now start receiving the very same life time bans as dished out to our own?, or did the dead blokes mum have selective hearing while attending the game at the Den last season (assuming she actually went). it's all banter and part of the game and being Wall....We just get on with it , I'll be surprised if we'll have any supporters left in the stands what with the way banning orders are being handed out at the moment,

    Amber, you're only too happy to ban the very blokes that pay the wages and support Wall through thick and thin and are letting of a little steam. Might i suggest you spend a bit more time on the phone dealing with appeals of banned wall fans, after all the Chairman wants attendance's up, unless we have several Olympic shot putters sitting in the east and west stands that can throw a chair in the the north upper (something never personally witnessed at the new den)....What harm can a bit of banter really do, another can creating an atmosphere.

    The dead blokes mum???? show some respect. How can some morons signing about the tragic death of someone who was just following his team be just BANTER???? That kind of chanting has no place in football and all it does is go to prove what most people think of Millwall supporters is true.
