A MILLWALL and Middlesbrough fan were so bored during their side's goalless draw that they bizarrely SWAPPED numbers and had a chat.
In footage posted on Reddit, the two opposing Boro and Lions supporters were captured exchanging digits from across stands during the Championship snoozefest.
The Boro fan used his fingers to signal his mobile digits to the Lions supporter who was taking them down on his phone whilst shouting out the numbers to make sure they were correct.
Although the reason why they exchanged numbers was unclear, it seemed to be in good spirits as when the Millwall supporter called his counterpart, they indulged in a light-hearted brief conversation before getting back to watching the action.
The visibly ecstatic Lions fan said to his new Boro pal: "Ohhh love it! fxxxxxx love it!
"Listen I'll get back to watching the game and I'll call you after."

And the eager Lions caller, donning a luxury designer Canada Goose jacket, seemed to keep his word as the clip seems to show him engaged in a face-time call with his latest acquaintance.
Viewers of the clip saw the funny side of the unusual exchange and expressed their humour underneath the Reddit snippet.
One fan mused: "A cute moment from the most wholesome fanbase in the country."
While another quipped: "Romance isn’t dead."

The newly-formed bromance was arguably the most interesting moment in the damp squib of a game that ended 0-0.
However, it's likely that Boro are retaining energy for their FA Cup quarter-final clash against Chelsea on Saturday.
Chris Wilder's side are the shock addition out of the last eight teams in the domestic competition after disposing of Tottenham with a 1-0 win in the last round.
Spurs' Prem counterparts Man United also fell victim to the giant-killers who ousted the Red Devils on penalties in the fourth round.
And Boro will fancy their chances against the Blues who are going through a tumultuous time after owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned and banned from selling the club for profit last week.
This spelled bad news for the Blues whose credit cards were also frozen amid a moratorium on the West Londoners selling merch and buying players.
The squeeze on Chelsea's finances leaves the reigning Champions League winners facing bankruptcy if a solution isn't found in the next few weeks.

However, they may have found a saviour in the form of lifelong Blues fan and billionaire Nick Candy who is intent on buying the club despite its woes.
