In the latest of a rather long saga of different types of abuse, as we tweeted last night, fans at Millwall's 2-1 win over Derby at the New Den unfurled an abusive banner directed at Sordell. The banner was quickly removed by ground staff, and the six fans involved have since been arrested. The banner was in reference to the banning of a 13 year old Millwall fan, who has been banned by the club over the abuse he shouted at Marvin during Bolton's match at the New Den.
