Millwall FC

The Lions moved to what was known as the New Den in 1993, where modern box nets inevitably followed a fairly standard set of Continental D's.

But dig into Millwall's history of goal nets at the (old) Den and a rich seam of diversity is revealed.

The early 90's groove was a highly distinctive set of Continental D's.

While just a couple of years earlier black A-frames (similar to Hibernian's?) stood at either end of Cold Blow Lane.

The same stanchions can be seen up close about a minute into this beautiful clip from 1979.

But in the fine tradition of saving the best for last, back in the fierce Mid-70's the architecture were white A-list A-frames, separated at birth from the A-frames at Leeds Utd.
