The No One Likes Us Talkin' Team - broadcasting to Millwall fans around the world
"My broadcasting experience started with Lions Live ten years ago when I wanted to have a show just for Millwall fans so they could hear all the latest news, listen to Lions favourites and be able to interact with the fan base. I have a good understanding of Millwall supporters and I have a real appreciation of the club’s history which I try to bring to the show and the NOLUT team. I talk about Millwall with passion and love sharing my thoughts with fellow supporters.
I became a Millwall supporter as I lived on the club’s doorstep and it was never a question of choice. When asked how long I have supported the club, I say too long but I would never stop following them. My favourite current player is Jed Wallace and of all time, it is the one and only Gordon Hill. I do have one stand out game, Tottenham Hotspur v Millwall on 1st February 1967 and I’ve hated Alan Gilzean ever since.
I originate from Bermondsey but now live in Kent where I occupy a lot of my time by keeping the new show ‘No One Likes Us Talkin!’ on the right tracks. But I couldn’t do it without the other guys. (Or team, as Eamonn would say!)"
"Broadcasting, what’s that? I’m the rookie of the group having little to no experience. I sat the first two weeks in total silence wondering if 'this' was for me. Now they can hardly keep me quite - opinionated moi?
I can’t remember who we played in my first game circa 1970, but I do remember reaching the top of those steps at the Cold Blow and seeing the pitch for the first time bathed in sunshine. It hit me like nothing had before or will do again, love. Being born in Deptford it was a natural progression that I should follow the family down The Den, although I do have recollections of informing my big brother I was QPR just to wind him up as he refused take me to games.
It was in 1973, after being told, 'Girls don’t play football' by my Head Master, I became resolute that I would! In the March of that year on an away supporters coach to Blackpool, the subject came up again. Millwall have always enjoyed a sizable female following and most of those on the coach that day decided to meet up in Deptford Park and start training; Millwall Lionesses, the rest is History.
As a season ticket holder for 47 years my all-time favourite player is the great Alan Dorney, although Moro is up there with him now. Favourite current player is Ben Thompson. Friends and I have sponsored Ben for the past three years, I truly believe his going to end up the greatest Millwall legend of all time."
"It's me, Bethany Warren. I'm 24 and I've been with the NOLUT team for just under a year. I've not had any radio experience before but I was trained in Acting at Italia Conti in Clapham so the voice lessons have paid off!
I've been a Millwall fan from birth but I dipped in and out for a few years until my Dad and I got season tickets again. We moved to Stansted in 2018 but we still travel for every home game and as many away games as we can. My favourite current players are Ben Thompson and Jed Wallace. My favourite player of all time is Neil Harris. He will always be a hero in my eyes!
I'm the Store Manager of a Vans store; I love my job in retail. In my spare time I'm an avid reader of anything true crime."
"I joined the Lions Live Radio team during its time under the Millwall Supporters Club as a panellist. When this was discontinued, I joined the George Lampey’s Broadcasting Recruitment Agency and became part of the Millwall No One Likes Us Talkin Broadcasting group.
My first taste of working life began in the media as a journalist on the Wembley Observer. I then went to King's College London and Tuebingen University in Germany. Following graduation, I moved into the property business.
I took over Millwall Football Club with Reg Burr, Brian Mitchell and then Peter Mead in 1986. I remained on the board until 2008. With the above, we won promotion to the old 1st Division (now the Premiership) in 1988. With Theo Paphitis in charge we got to the 2004 FA Cup final at Cardiff and played in the UEFA Cup the following season. In 2005, I was chairman in succession to Theo Paphitis and was succeeded by Peter de Savary. In my time we won the FA Youth Cup twice, and as chair of the Lionesses won two Women’s FA Cups. I was instrumental in installing the present chairman John Berylson in 2007, and I remain a fan of all Millwall sides to this day.
My all-time favourite player is Barry Kitchener and my current favourite is ‘One of Our Own’ Ben Thompson."
"I have been broadcasting since January 2017 when I appeared as a guest on Lions Live Radio having been recruited by George. I’d say I’m in my element most when discussing the team’s performances on the pitch. I like debating Gary Rowett footballing philosophy we’ve all come to know and love. Discussing how he should set up against certain opposition teams. It’s something I know my mates are interested in talking about with me - we joke about our football all the time and take it extremely seriously!
My dad took me to my first game when I was about four years old and I’ve never looked back since. My earliest memories are of the 2000-01 Division Three winning side. I am a big fan of Jed Wallace as I love his perseverance. However, as a goalkeeper myself, I’ve been blown away by Bartosz Bialkowski’s impact on the team. My favourite player of all time has to go to Tim Cahill. I will never forget the FA Cup Semi-Final goal he scored against Sunderland at Old Trafford two days after my 8th birthday.
I was born in Lambeth and I currently live in Greenwich after studying there. I also play for Blackheath and Elthamians Hockey Club and have done since I’ve finished University. I currently work as a web publisher for a marketing agency in the city."
"I was first taken to the den by brother in 1968 and still remember the railway arch at the Brocklehurst Road end and the chestnut sellers.
I am the third generation of my family to support Millwall and I now take the fourth generation. I am originally a local boy but currently live in Seaton Carew near Hartlepool.
There are many great memories of Millwall and of course plenty of disappointment over the years. My favourite player was Barry Kitchener but I had a favourite skilful player too, Gordon Hill. My favourite kit follows this theme because they both wore it, the white kit from the seventies."
"My broadcasting experience started in my Trades Union days, answering questions from the press and talking to TU groups. Then I asked four years ago to see what goes on at Lions Live shows and quickly became ‘The man on the phones’. The rest is history. I bring to the team a great appreciation of Millwall’s history, in particular from the 1960s. (To a lesser degree the same could be said of me in respect to football in general.) The club and its history have become a way of life for me. I get what the club is all about and I am proud of its working class roots in times gone by.
I became a Millwall supporter when my grandad took me there in 1963 to see us play Carlisle United. There were other teams on the horizon and some of my mates followed them but Millwall became the other love of my life. My favourite current player is Mahlon Romeo, he is just so consistent, and my all-time favourite is the late, great Keith Weller.
I come from between the Old Kent Road and the Walworth Road but now live in Kent. I am retired but before each Christmas I become one of Santa’s little helpers to ensure that everyone gets their letters and parcels in time for the big day."
"My experience in broadcasting was initially with Lions Live which I got into via George Lampey and the Millwall Supporters Club. Some people say I don't know what I'm talking about let alone be called an expert on anything but It's just the feeling that my club is unique, that we are a one off and that every other club wishes they had what we have got - and I want to talk about that!
I got into Millwall through my family. My grandad and dad took me to my first game. In fact I started supporting Millwall nine months before I was born, if you know what I mean! I love anyone in a Millwall shirt but at the moment I have a lot of admiration for Shaun Hutchinson because of the struggle he had when he first came to us and how he has established himself as an important figure in our first team. Mind you, the greatest player I've seen in a Millwall shirt was Keith Weller.
My family come from Deptford and I'm a lift engineer.
"I got into broadcasting when, as a DJ, I was asked to do a two hour slot on hospital radio and so it was at East Dulwich Hospital that I got my first taste of true broadcasting. I then worked with Deano Standing and Adrian Wisson at Abbey Wood (Millwall) and then with Lions Live until it closed.
As for being a Millwall supporter, it was what my family did. We lived in Dockhead, Bermondsey and The Den was no distance from us at all. I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of following the team despite the ups and downs. Now that I am retired there is even more time to concentrate on the Lions and listen to George Lampey.
During my 60 years as a supporter, I have travelled all over the country with Millwall and have loved talking about the great matches and the ‘Top Scalps’ we have taken. I am also a bit of a statistician and delight in examining the details behind the club's results. My favourite player from the past is Barry Kitchener and my favourite player in the current team is Jed Wallace.
That is me, Millwall through and through!"
"My involvement with the NOLUT team started when I was the Fan in the Dugout. I enjoyed it so much that I asked Eamonn if I could get involved on a more regular basis. Thankfully Eamonn said yes and I have been part of the team since Nov 2019. Being part of the team is a dream come true and absolutely I love being able to talk about my favourite subject.
I am a third generation Millwall supporter following in the footsteps of my Granddad (Lou) and My Dad (Colin aka Joe, who I still go with) I am hoping my son Harry (3) becomes the 4th generation and keeps the family love going. He’s already been 4 times and is currently a Junior Lion Season ticket holder. I have supported Millwall since 1980 and seen lots of ups and downs through those years including topping the old first division and going to Cardiff to see the FA Cup final against Man Utd. There have been a few down too but I won’t talk about them.
My Favorite player over the many year’s I’ve been going to watch the lions would have to be Teddy Sheringham.
I currently sit in block 15 with a group of around 20 regulars who also sit there, and we all have a good catch up on match days.
I don’t know what my life would be like without Millwall…… "
"I joined the Millwall No One Likes Us Talkin Broadcasting team after doing a section on the “Fan in the Dugout” on “Our Millwall Fans Show”. My day job sees me training teachers for a social mobility charity, focusing on improving the education for some of London’s most deprived areas, previously teaching in two separate schools in the Eltham and Welling area.
Having done a few little bits on Lions TV and becoming involved in the battle against the CPO on our ground, I always wanted to become more involved in the club. Attending events such as the Millwall Supporters Club AGM and the MCT Disability gala, you really begin to get a sense of the Aauto Windscreens, to the highs of the FA Cup semi-final and a short but eventful trip into Europe. I remain a fan of all Millwall sides to this day.
My all-time favourite player is Alex Rae and my current favourite is Jed Wallace, whose development has been a joy to watch since he was on loan with us from Wolves."
"My experience in broadcasting started many years ago with Radio Free Europe - and a few other places along the way – and continues today with No One Likes Us Talkin! I was introduced to NOLUT by the George Lampey Recruitment Agency and I like talking Millwall and enjoy the banter with the rest of the team. I also enjoy supporting the marketing side of the show.
My family originally came from Scotland and Ireland, and Millwall has been a family tradition since my Scottish great, great grandfather arrived in Stepney as a migrant worker and then moved to Bermondsey in the late 1800s. My uncle John took me to my first game, against Rochdale in 1965 and my kids and my only grand-child now follow Millwall too. If you wear the Millwall shirt you are great. In the current team I really rate Bartosz Bialkowski – An incredible goalkeeper . As for the greatest player I've seen in a Millwall shirt, well there are two: Harry Cripps for his passion and Teddy Sheringham for his skill.
I now live in Surrey. I am an Aquarian and naturally became a water carrier for many years - but not now."
