Millwall...."proper Wall"


Should I start to relax?

31/3/12 Cardiff 0 Millwall 0
07/4/12 Millwall 2 Hull 0
10/4/22 Portsmouth 0 Millwall 1
47 points
A draw and two wins takes us eight points clear of the drop and the Millwall team looked to me to be only a few steps away from being a top-notch side. They have the quality and the desire to play for the shirt and I also see many instances of guts, grit and battling spirit that can only be described as "Wall" or as we also call it "proper Wall"

Barry Kitchener memorial ...the club, the team, the supporters, memories and the history.
There's no stopping us now

There's still a bit of this season left so I am not counted chickens before they have hatched (although it may seem that by what I wrote above) and I still think we need something else from the remaining four games, the twelve points would be nice but just a few would do.


14/04/12 Game 43 Millwall 2 Leicester 1 WE ARE MATHEMATICALLY SAFE

Yes, we get something else, three wins on the spin and another three points. A top drawer couple of weeks and the season is saved. I have trawled back through the fixtures and although we were always down in the lower regions of the Championship we have always done enough to keep just ahead of the pack . Keeping ahead of the relegation pack has come about by some blinding away wins at places like Forest and Leicester. The re-discovery of winning at home is happy days and as I said before "there's no stopping us now"


17/04/12 Game 44 Coventry 0 Millwall 1 -Lowry scores his first goal

The best spell we have had this season and the winning run continues. We may have sent the Sky Blues down to the 1st division

                                                    56 POINTS

21/04/12 Game 45 Ipswich 0 Millwall 3 
Five wins on the spin and we take top position for best placed South London Club.  A fantastic end to the season and well done to the team for carrying on trying to win games and not just thinking about their holidays.

                                      57 POINTS                                                         
28/4/12 Game 46 Millwall 2 Blackpool 2 

I salute KJ and the team for although disappointing us a few times this season they have come good when it mattered and finished the season banging in the goals and winning games in style.
That's 17 points clear of the drop, not to sure why I was worried, we survived in style and finished in 16th spot, which was above Palace.
