Roy Larner - a true hero

I've just read about the guy named Roy Larner.

Just google his name, it's basically all over the news:

An absolute hero! I think there should be some crowdfunding for this man!

Or how about a charity match West Ham - Millwall...with all the money going to Roy Larner!


  • A true hero and the article states there is a just giving site, i saw a comment suggesting that we send him some Claret and Blue flowers as a get well.

    Well it made me laugh.

    I am glad that he appears to not have life threatening injuries and I bet it will be some considerable time before he has to buy himself a pint.

    Club allegiances mean nothing in situations such as this. Well done Roy Larner, true, true bravery. I must also add that his pre-emptive shout to the attackers, and the magazine his friends subsequently brought for him to hospital, are hilarious.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention helopyrus ;ok

    He wasn't the only one to act with bravery.

    How can you pick one person out from all of them, as more deserving of praise or being designated a hero. Is my view on things.

    I'm not trying to play down what he did, but he's not the only one who showed courage.
  • Well I never thought I'd say anything nice about a Millwall supporter.

    Sorry, got distracted. Where was I? I'm sure I was going to say something nice about someone ;hmm
  • Good on ya Roy.

    Others were not so lucky. A nurse whose first instinct was to help the wounded is amongst the dead.

  • Just wanted to say that even though I made light of the Millwall supporter aspect, please know I think what happened was totally awful and mustve been horrific for all those involved.
  • None of us thought otherwise Baz ;hug
  • Thanks Suz ;hug
  • Frequency Beer Works, a Swedish brewer has created/named a new beer as a tribute to Roy Larner. Named after the line he shouted at the attackers. ;beer ;ok
