“F*ck you! I’m Millwall!” Those are the words Millwall soccer fan Roy Larner shouted at the group of knife wielded radical Islamic terrorists as they entered a London restaurant after they ran down pedestrians on London bridge.
The slogan of the Millwall soccer team is “We Fear No Foe” and Larner certainly acted on that motto as he allowed numerous people to escape the restaurant.
In total, Larner was stabbed eight times and left for dead by the group.
A fundraising page has been setup to raise money for Larner’s recovery.
According to the fundraiser page:
Roy got caught up in the terror attack at London Bridge and was badly injured whilst protecting lives. He is now in St. Thomas’s hospital in intensive care. A Millwall supporter and in my mind a proper hero and deserves our support and aid to help him on his recovery.
When ISIS are in your neighbourhood who you gonna call – Roy Larner!!
A message to all this is a genuine page. I initially set out to raise £500 for Roy but I have been overwhelmed with the support & love for this brave man. All the best to everyone. Jayne
“Like an idiot I shouted back at them. I thought, ‘I need to take the piss out of these bastards’. I took a few steps towards them and said, ‘Fuck you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me,” Larner said in an interview from his hospital bed.
According to a report from The Sun:
Roy, who suffered huge gashes and a punctured lung said: “I’m quite proud of doing what I did. I’ve got slashes to the arms and the hands. Stabbed in the side of me stomach.
“I got slashed on my neck, head and ear hole is coming off.”
But he added: “They died around me, which was one of the best feelings ever.”
Former partner Tracy Wicks, 54 — mum of his daughter Freya, 14 — visited him in hospital.
She said: “He told me, ‘I could have died’. It’s incredible what he did. He said he thought there was just one of them, then ended up fighting all three.
“He is homeless at the moment and sleeping at a friend’s house. He really does deserve help.”
