Millwall pushing on

Nottingham Forest offer £2 million for Steve Morison.
Millwall say NO, we don't have to sell and if we did it would not be to a competitor in our division.

I like the sound of that!

Before the Xmas game against Leicester City, once inside the ground 
we see why Steve Morison is going nowhere.

25/1/11 With two penalties missed and his body language not quite right Steve Morison
looks like he's lost his car and found a bike.

Another update
5/2/11 Steve Morrison signs a extension to his contract that should keep him here to 2013.

15/8/11 Taken all into consideration, I was wrong, wrong and wrong again.

31/10/11 OOPS! I forgot to update this post even though it s written elsewhere, Steve Morison joins Norwich City  pre season and becomes a Premier league striker. I suppose, better late than never.

Trouble at Birmingham City last night

I  hardly got to hear about this.....
Putting it bluntly, very nasty, major aggro and  flares fired in to the crowd.  Birmingham playing Aston Villa in the Carling cup and a major disturbance inside the ground. A tiny mention in the daily newspapers and not much else said about it elsewhere. I am sure you know what I am going to say..........

FACT:  If it had involved Millwall it would have been on the front page.

Josh McQuoid

Young Bournmouth star Josh McQuoid signs for the Wall and will play on loan to January 2011and then sign a permanent deal when the transfer window re-opens. The reported fee is about £400,000. This goal scoring youngster should add a bit more up front and hopefully it will turn out to be a excellent signing. It will be interesting to see if he gets game time up at Preston tomorrow. I can imagine that the Cherries fans are not happy.

Millwall 0 Sheffield Utd 1

Perhaps he will cheer up when we win at Middlesborough

19/11/10 K J signs Crystal Palace reserve team striker  Calvin Andrew, and Southampton winger Jason Puncheon on loan. This could be just what the doctor ordered or........

Millwall 1v 1 Norwich

9/11/10  I was freezing but a late goal by the "Wall" gave us a point and some warmth returned to my body.

Schofield dazzled but a lack of Millwall fire power up front nearly cost us all three points. Please go to this seasons page within this Blogspot  (link located in right hand sidebar)  "Millwall in the Championship 2010-11" for more.

Kenny Jackett

Three years in the job and I'm happy. I much prefer our current position than where we was when KJ was giving the job.  I would like our away form to approve this season but overall I have faith in the man and the players. I am hoping for a result at Doncaster Rovers this Saturday.

Well it's Saturday night and I am not so happy. We couldn't hold on to a 1-0 lead.

As I see it so far---- season 2010-11

27/10/10  13 GAMES GONE

A good early start of winning games meant that the points we had gained resulted in a cushion that would help us stave off languishing at the bottom of the table when things did not go so well.
Sitting in ninth spot is amazing as we have not been at a best for a while and it has been reflected in the results. A few draws and a occasional win resulted in enough points to keep us clear of the bottom pack.  The excellent win at home against Derby compensated for the dismal display against Portsmouth and goes to prove that on their day the team can beat anybody and with some style. The excellent signing of Danny Shittu looks like to be a big PLUS. Check out my 2010-11 season page on this Blogspot. Link Below
Millwall FC in the Championship 2010-2011
QPR top with 29 points
Millwall 9th with 19 points
Bristol City bottom with 10 points

That makes it 10 to the top and 9 to the bottom

Crystal Palace 0 Millwall 1 *Lovely*

After two draws against QPR and Burnley it's all smiles with me as we win 1-0 at Palace.
A brilliant 4800 Millwall away support enjoys the short journey home.

The Bristol City away game resulted in a fine 3-0 win for Millwall

A excellent win away to Bristol City was soured when Millwall supporters had their coaches attacked after the game and evidence that I have heard and read was that the organisation by the Police was incompetence of the highest degree.  For a account of the trouble as mentioned by Millwall fans please visit the Millwall Supporters Club site to read the full letter of complaint they sent to Avon Police.

Steve Morison

Steve Morison prepares to score his third goal of the 2010-2011 season by scoring a penalty against Middlesboro in the 2nd round of the Carling Cup(24/8/10)
The banner covering the seats behind the away end goal looks like it came from the Wembley play off final last season. It's been cut down and re-shaped.

Neil Harris

Millwall 2 Hearts 3   att. 8.376  at the Den 31/7/10

A well deserved testimonial and I am gutted I missed it because of holiday commitments. All has been said before about this man so nothing more to add apart from "a new challenge this season in the Championship and I am sure that Bomber will add to his goal tally.

F*!k em all

Millwall Rovers

125 years ago football history was in the making and Millwall Rovers was born. A year later they decided to do away with Rovers in their name and just become Millwall FC.

Seeing it's our anniversary year should we once again call ourselves Mllwall Rovers?

Na...I don't think so. Not to sure I could handle the crowd singing "we are Rovers, we are Rovers from the Den" or saying things like "cum on Rovers kick bawl up tuther end"

England dressing room incident

One of the blokes at work knows the England supporter who went in the England dressing room after the Algeria game. He is a Palace supporter who apparently was only looking for a toilet.
I kid you not.

What you won't find on my sites

Want you won't find on my sites is the crappy mobile phone two minute video footage of a Millwall tumble somewhere that populates You Tube .

I am not judge and jury but we all know that we attract the worse in the opposition including the Police and probably many of these "tumbles" could be that we were defending our own (the young fan at Huddersfield tells the tale), but unless you know the facts all these video's do is help to stereo-type me and everybody else that follows Millwall.

This is what I prefer

League one play off Wembley 2010

On my other Blogspot 7Windmills(see link) I have a " WEMBLEY 2010 PICTURE STORY" and a post called "THIS SEASON HAS ME ON THE EDGE OF MY NERVES" which captures the last five games of the season and the two play off games against Huddersfield and this 2010 league one final play off game against Swindon at Wembley. It was a wet, dull grey day but it was a wonderful day as the Millwall legions gathered at Wembley to watch the team put on a "solid" display that saw them wipe out all but a single chance that Swindon could muster.

My day started early.

I picked up my youngest son and three others and then a drive to the Old Kent Road.
A mini bus from the old Barnaby pub site in Ilderton Road just off the Old Kent Road at 11 am saw us at Wembley by mid day. The Swindon supporters coaches were clogging up the streets and some how our bus ended up in the Swindon coach park. The first thing that sprung to mind was "we gotta win" there was no way I was going back in that coach park if Swindon won, I couldn't have handled the mouth from them, anyway no probs as we parked up and strolled through them. A pee was the first agenda.

The weather was just how I wanted it dull and damp,  I remember last years play off final and the knackering heat and the disapointment of the attitude of everybody "it's a nice day out" sod that, hopefully this year we can put in a solid non stop performance.
Time for drinky poo's in a bar overlooking the stadium which only sold bottled beer at a over inflated price but a good atmosphere that cranked up as the Millwall fans packed in.

We had a look round and a burger was purchased down Wembley way which cost my son £6.50 and they tried to charge him a pound for the ketchup as you can imagine he told them to shove it. I took a few photo's.

Just like me, these two don't mind the rain

A Millwall Belle "proper Wall"
Not to many Swindon fans coming along Wembley Way I can only presume that is because many of them come by coach. Another beer in the concourse inside the stadium and a pee and I am ready fo the game I join the rest of the mini bus crowd in the seats and we crank up the Mmmiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
Millwall 1 Swindon 0 Robinson scored the goal
The team was spot on with their attitude and application. the manager Kenny Jacket was tactically correct and earned this promotion with his footballing brain, knowledge of players, nous, guile and a steady hand and of course hard work....WELL DONE KJ!
attendance 73.108
After the game and the trophy celebration we made the walk back to the coach park and most of the Swindon coaches were gridlocked trying to leave the ground. Got chatting to some Swindon fans in a small mini-bus and reminded them that it may be a miserable journey back up the M4 but do take care. We were just about to leave the coach park when we spotted this Swindon old boy looking confused and wandering around saying his coach had left him behind, he looked about 75-80 years old. We watched him team up with the Swindon fans in the mini-bus who by this time apart from us was the last vehicle in the coach park and then we drove off.
Hope he got home OK

PS I must be one of a few fans who made the journey to Wembley from the Old Kent Road .

Following Millwall FC

Hello......I presume that I would be correct in saying that most people within the UK have their favourite team be it football or other, mine happens to be MIllwall FC the biggest "little club" in the world. I am sure that most people outside of Millwall have pre-conceived ideas of Millwall supporters and the club in general and they are entitled to it. When I am at the Den in the middle of the packed Cold Blow Lane roaring on the Lions I'm in the safest place in the world and that feels great.
When I was younger I used to travel away with the Lions regularly and have many a tale to tell and likewise traveling with thousands of Millwall supporters cannot be bettered and also that felt great. I will be traveling again when circumstance allows and money permitting and hopefully it should be once again a crack.
There's a school of thought on some Millwall forums that if you don't go to every away game you are not "proper Wall" I suppose in some way that can be believed but I don't think that statement is true. The opportunity to go to every away game is brilliant and to those that can I salute them one and all. Personally the life I lead does not allow me to go to Carlisle on a Tuesday night but I have my ear glued to the radio and I am pacing the house, biting my nails and feeling every emotion that to me is "proper Wall"
