47-Year-Old Soccer Fan Took on Three Knife-Wielding Terrorists Barehanded

, , , ,

The Telegraph reports that the England of Old is not quite dead.

A defiant football fan who charged at the three terrorists and took them all on with his bare hands has been nicknamed the Lion of London Bridge for his bravery.

Roy Larner, 47, was drinking in a pub when the three terrorists burst in and he held them off so others could escape, getting fairly cut up in the process.

They chanted “Islam, Islam” and “This is for Allah”.

In return, Mr Larner shouted: “I’m f—ing Millwall!!”

He was knifed eight times before the jihadis left the Black & Blue restaurant and bar.

His friends have since gifted him a “learn to run” book, joking about how instead of saving his own life, he put himself in danger by fighting the terrorists.

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’.”

“I took a few steps towards them and said, ‘F— you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me.

“I stood in front of them trying to fight them off. Everyone else ran to the back.

“I was on my own against all three of them, that’s why I got hurt so much.

When I was taking Kung Fu we would often train to disarm a knife attack. We would us a magic marker as the knife. The nest technique “may” disarm the attacker but the attacker always was able to mark up the defender sometimes really badly. The lesson: The best way to disarm a knife wielding attacker is with a gun.


I went to MI state police academy between junior and senior year of high school. They taught us that the best way to take a knife is with a gun, also. They said that you WILL get cut if you don’t have your own weapon. But at least this guy had the balls to do something instead of run. When everyone in Great Britain grows some, maybe things will change. Then they will tell their politicians that they want their guns back.Churchill is turning over in his grave, as well as the brave men from the second world war.


Absolutely! I agree. Hiding may be a smart choice for a child, a female, an old person but my god we can’t all hide. Someone has to make the offender/criminal pay a price. Where are the Churchill’s and the Todd Beamer’s anymore.

I will add that a chair or a baseball bat make an excellent defense against a knife. But when all else fails any available weapon and trickery can suffice. Not prevent you getting cut but it can save lives. This is why god made men strong. Every man between the ages of 16 to 56 should be able to defend himself and others. But, do not under estimate the risk and the consequences. My hat is off to this hero.
