Your warning here is that you’re about to meet one badass dude, but also that you’re going to encounter a little bit of language.
Trust me. It will totally make sense when you hear his story, so let’s start at the beginning.
This is forty-seven-year-old Roy Larner, who was out in a pubnear London Bridge this past weekend when terrorists came wielding knives at innocent people in the crowd.
Larner could have run away, but instead he fearlessly shouted back and fought them single-handedly saving countless lives as he gave staff and other drinkers time to escape.
And while single-handedly fighting off three of them unarmed is badass in and of itself, it was his battlecry that people are talking about.
He told The Sun from hospital: They had these long knives and started shouting about Allah. Then it was, Islam, Islam, Islam.”
Like an idiot I shouted back at them. I thought, I need to take the p*** out of these b******s, he continued. I took a few steps towards them and said, F*** you, I’m Millwall. So they started attacking me.”
I didnt think of my safety at the time, he added. “Id had four or five pints nothing major, he said. I can handle myself. But it wasn’t until I was in a police car that I realized I was in a bad way. Id been sliced up all over.”
He was sent to the hospital in critical condition and is now recovering from multiple stab wounds to the face and chest.
But the question is, “What’s a ‘Millwall’?”
That would be a British football team of which he’s apparently a big fan, so in essence he screamed about football ashe single-handedly took on terrorists and saved lives.
Roy has been hailed a hero by friends who want him honored with a George Cross for bravery and raised more than $28,000 so far from JustGiving to cover his medical costs.
But they also had one more thing they wanted to give him…
Yeah, they gave him an issue Runner’s World magazine with the headline “Learn to Run,” seeing as that’s the last thing he thought about doing the night before.
Side note: Is it just me or does he kind of look like Robert De Niro in that picture?
Anyway, he is rightfully being hailed a hero and legend on , cursing battlecry, and all.
Never forget: “F*** you. I’m Millwall.”
Well done, sir.
