Championship Game 29/11/14 Bournemouth 2 Millwall 2 att:10,016

I think we take about 800 for this one.

I know it's corny but "it's what we do" Normally when it is said "same as" it can mean a fayre of average or below football performance. But the Millwall "same as" is serving up a poor performance and conceded goals first half and then assaulting the opposition in the second half and getting a draw. We do that a lot.

Charlton 0 Millwall 0 Championship 22/11/14 19,189 (we take over 3000)

If only Jermaine Easter's shot and gone in late on we would have been celebrating all three points and Charlton's misery would have been greater than it is now if that was possible.The 'is now" part of Charlton's misery is that they haven't beat us since 1996 and this draw makes sure that their unhappy run continues. After Jermaine Easters shot Charlton could have still won the game in stoppage time when Charlton's George Tucudean lobbed David Forde but the chance failed as Bryon Webster done the magic stuff and Alan Dunne conceded  a corner and that was that.
Yet another draw come our way which doesn't help much when it comes to climbing the table but it keeps us off the bottom. Seven draw means seven points and without them we would be just above Blackpool and languishing in the mire.
The travelling 3000 rubbed it in as the game approached the final whistle by singing " you will never beat Millwall" I reckon that may be true.

Millwall 2 Brentford 3, 8/11/14 Championship Game, 17 att: 13, 048

League game 17 of the season and a game to remember for all sorts of reasons

This was the game that we wear our new camouflage kit. This kit should raise 20k For Headley Court which is the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre which is based in Surrey. They do mind blowing work there and there are shining examples of service personnel who with amputated limbs etc can bounce back into lfe with the wearing of all sorts of aids. Incredible people and a few of them were at the Den for this one. They took to the field to a thundering applause and both sets of players formed a guard of honour to salute them on their way.

It was also the game on the Saturday before remembrance Sunday  and also the 100th anniversary of the First World War so we had a good few poppies on display as well as some 2nd world war veterans proudly wearing their medals. I don't usually mention sponsors but shirt sponsors Euroferries gave up their name on the shirt for this one and Headley Court's name took that spot. Fair play to Euroferries.

The special shirts take to the pitch

The game itself. The first half I thought we were well off the mark and lacked any purpose. Brentford took a one goal lead into half time and another defeat loomed close. After we went 2-0 down in the 56th minute Scott McDonald came on as sub in the 57th minute and we scored in the 58th and 59th minute to fetch it back level at 2-2. Another come back was on the cards, that was until Danny Shittu close to his own goal scored a own goal to give Brentford the 3 points. No comeback for us which was a shame on such a special day. We are getting a tad to close to the relegation spots for my liking.

Watford 3 Millwall 1 Championship 1/11/14 att:17,000 We take 1797

The Referee Bob Madley should have went the whole hog and put a Watford shirt on.

We had a extra 20% possession but conceded the most fouls. What does that tell you? You've guessed it, another "unconsciously" bias referee, big bad Millwall must be punished. We played some decent football but somehow lost this game 3-1.  We scored from a Martyn Woolford Goal in the 12th minute and held on to the lead to the 36th minute when Watford scored against the run of play. We couldn't take this score into the half time break thanks to the referee. Alan Dunne was fouled and ended up falling to the floor, Troy Deeney fell over him and the referee awarded Deeney the foul. He even booked Dunne. Forgive me if  I am wrong but this referee is the most useless twat that ever took up the art of refereeing, if he's not a twat he must have a agenda. I can't see how the Football League can give him ever another game to referee. Watford still had a free kick to take and once again our defending of dead balls was below par and it was whacked in on 45 minutes. We were all over them for the start of the 2nd half and continued to boss the play to once  again another dubious free kick and once again we didn't defend it and that was that. It's a good job it wasn't a long way home.
