Bradford City 4 Millwall 0, FA Cup 3rd round, 14/1/15, att: 11,859 (away 614)


We take over 600 for this midweek game and John Berylson promises to refund all those that bought a ticket in advance. We were poor and weak and capitulated to a team in League One which was totally unlike Millwall FC. I think we have reached rock bottom.

The FA Cup comes around each season no matter where you are in the football league's and I always look to see if we can put a cup run together. In the past we have done this and over the years we have had some memorable moments. This is one of those times but all for the wrong reasons. The ease that Bradford scored in the 3-3 game in the first leg was a warning of what they would do to us at their place. We didn't yet again turn up and the 4-0 defeat was the best we could ask for. Having the carrot of beating this lot and it's Chelsea in the next round was certainly a carrot for Bradford but for us it wasn't a carrot it was a bowl of unpasteurised stodge, a embarrassment to the badge. We managed to squeak a draw with them at our place but that was a good as we got.

Do I need to comment in detail regarding the game? Not really, I will just list the team.

Forde,  Dunne,  Shittu,  Beevers,  Briggs,  Abdou,  Chaplow,  Upson(Webster 46), Gregory, Fuller(Woolford 22), Martin(Gueye 62)
subs not used, King, Nelson, Powell, McDonald
