1885---131st Anniversary year---2016 'We fear No Foe

Understood by those that matter

Millwall FC in the Championship 2010-2011

First season back in the Championship. It's good to be back.
We have managed to retain all our top players from last season and Kenny Jacket has said "we do not have to sell and he is looking to strengthen the team where needed" The pre-season friendlies are coming up soon and before we know it the season will be upon us. After last seasons exciting nail biting finish to the season I am hoping that the progress continues.

Watch this space.

Will we be celebrating again?

Well sorry to say not much following done by me in the pre-season friendlies so far, I had to miss the Millwall win at AFC Wimbledon, I couldn't make the Bromley game where we fielded a Millwall XI and lost 2-1. My son went to the Bromley game and gave me a account of the game. And I am gutted to say that I forgot about the Welling game and missed that one as well.

I don't believe it, I was edited the end of this page and about 90% of it has disappeared. Gutted I had eight league games worth of text and pics and Carling Cup stuff.  I will  put the pictures back later but I lost the text.
I'm not starting again so.....

GAME 9  28/9/2010 QPR 0 Millwall 0 att 15.235

A gritty, gutsy performance away at high flying QPR earned us a point, but it could have been all three.  It's a shame that local gutless wonders thought they could act hard by throwing objects including darts at Millwall supporters including women and kids when they were inside and outside the ground. One of  our supporters "who is getting on a bit"  was hit by a dart that landed with such force into his chest that it went in so far that the barrel was pressed up against his skin. He had to go to hospital to have it removed. (South London Press Fridays edition (1-10-10).  But once again it was all our fault.

A trophy we picked up at QPR

GAME 10  1/10/10  The Anniversary Game, Millwall 1  Burnley 1 att. 12,330

We couldn't produce a win to top this historic day even though Burnley played for most of the game with 10 men. We tried but the finishing was below par and I presume that the opposition went home happy.  A great turnout by some of Millwall's past players high-lighted the day and Terry (the Crunch) Hurlock and Charlie Hurley to name a few graced a Millwall pitch once again. Scott Barron scored again.


GAME 11 16/10/10  Crystal Palace 0 Millwall 1 att: 16.693

That's better! It's always nice to win at the Parlase. Theo Robinson scored. Millwall take 4.800 away support. 

How it stands
Top...........QPR            27 points
Middle......Millwall        16 points
Bottom......Bristol City    6 points

Some of the lost pictures

Carling Cup 24/8/10  Millwall 2-Middlesboro 1
Att. 6.704

 Championship game 14-9/10  In the rain a nil-nil draw with Reading   Att: 11.061 


Carling Cup 3rd round  Millwall 1 Ipswich 2 
That's the end of that cup run.

Looking across to the away end.  Give credit where it's due, for a midweek Carling cup game there was a fair size away support, it was shame we couldn't make them go back up the A12  with faces as long as the bonnets of their tractors.


Game 12   19/10/10 Millwall 0 Portsmouth1 att.12.095
I have had time to reflect on last nights game and I have concluded that we were clueless. Morison taking throw-ins!  not sure what that was about!.  Portsmouth was the worse side I have seen at the Den for many a game and for them to walk away with all 3 points was shameful.  The team as well as KJ'S tactics were not right for this one. The subs bench looked quality and when Dunne come on he had the best shot of the match that skimmed the bar and he's a full back.

Us Millwall supporters in a packed Cold Blow Lane Stand are maybe wondering that we need better players than the ones we have got and also maybe a change of tactics. 

Game 13  23-10-10  Millwall 2-Derby County 0  att. 12.024

That's better, A rotation of some players and Danny Shittu signing for Millwall does the job. Morison does what he does best, a super strike to open the scoring.  Theo Robinson makes it 2-0 scoring from a flying header and Millwall take the three points. The first defeat for Derby in six games and their fans were singing " Millwall's a hell hole--I wanna go home"    very strange people

Game 14  31-10-10  Ipswich 2-Millwall 0  att: 19.020

Back to loosing again. I cannot believe we did not score but then again Ipswich could have scored more.
A soft penalty given away by Danny Shittu saw the referee award Ipswich a penalty from which they scored and took all three points. Millwall had efforts cleared off the Ipswich goal line and should have been awarded a penalty also. .
Game 15  6-11-10  Doncaster Rovers 2-Millwall 1 att:10.356

Two defeats on the road and two of my weekends spoilt. I was hopeful that we could have got a result but a silly patch in the early part of the second half saw us conceded two goals which wiped out Millwall's one goal advantage.
Game 16  Millwall 1 Norwich 1 att 10.211

Millwall start with Grabban and Marquis up front, injuries and suspension weaken the team.

My outlook on this match was....The first half was full of quality play by Millwall with some top notch play around the pitch but nothing in the back of the net. Norwich done exactly what I was expecting them to do but I thought we contained them well. Not to sure about putting Shittu up front for most of the second half. 

Grabban substituted, Ward on, Shittu moves up front

About 10 minutes to go and Millwall are pressing. Delboy lurks.

Millwall's equaliser in injury time warmed my "cockles" and I guarantee it warmed many others. 

GAME 17  9/11/10  Millwall 0 Sheffield United 1

Millwall tried to score, but to be frank, they did not have a clue, Sheffield weren't much better. 

                                        On his own   KJ has got to sort this out.

17 GAMES outcomes  W-W-L-W-D-D-L-L-D-D-W-L-W-L-L-D-L   its plain to see, two wins in the last thirteen games.

I think its time to turn up the heat. We are getting done at home and the Den is quite.

What is needed right now is the home game against Leeds. This would inject exactly what's needed, a team that's up for it and a crowd that will go into turbo mode and scream the "Wall" on to victory. The trouble is it's not going to happen until April the ninth next year. Scunthorpe at home next.
19/11/10 I have just got wind that we have signed two players on loan Jason Puncheon from Southampton and Calvin Andrew from Crystal Palace. We will have to see if this double signing is of benefit.
20/11/10 GAME 18  Middlesboro 0 Millwall 1   att. 15.697
That's Better! We started brightly and had a corner in the first thirty seconds and could have a had a early goal. We were sharp up front and Morison come close. Henry was busy.  This weeks loan signing Jason puncheon scored on his Millwall debut with 25 minutes on the clock.  863 Millwall fans make the journey and they were noisy through out the game.  Millwall press for the second and Puncheon nearly scores his 2nd on 38 mins. The 2nd half Middlesboro do a bit more, but apart from a clear off the line by James Henry in extra time they lacked a cutting edge. Millwall looked solid throughout.  Calvin Andrew's done well and Danny Shittu gave blood.  Millwall finish the weekend in 15th place with 23 points and only four points away from the play offs, Preston are rock bottom with 14 points and QPR are top with 38 points.

The Millwall Team:  Forde, Dunne, Craig, Trotter, Robinson, Shittu, Puncheon, Mkandawire, Morison, Andrew (Harris, 85mins), Henry. Subs not used: Mildenhall, Carter, Ward, Laird, Abdou, Marquis.
Goal scorer: Puncheon 25 mins
Hold the line! Hold the line! said the Plod as nearly 900 Millwall fans are frog marched down to the railway station. The Police in their wisdom decided to take the travelling support past a rowdy home supporters pub and as you can imagine it became interesting. It did not matter if you had a car or you didn't come by train you was still forced to go and catch one. What was Millwall fans response to this nonsense, they done the Hokey Cokey.
 26/11/10 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 looks like KJ is not standing still and with help from the board is continually looking to develop the team for life in the Championship.
Away to Preston tomorrow, but bad weather may stop this one. Snow up north.

27/11/10 GAME 19 Preston 0 Millwall 0 att 9.579
The snow did not come and rock bottom Preston were lucky to come away with a point. In a game we should have won Millwall had numerous opportunities to stick the ball in the net. I think shooting practice should be on the agenda first thing Monday morning. Josh McQuiod did not feature due to a slight stomach muscle injury. Millwall now with 24 points.

Millwall Team: Forde, Dunne, Robinson, Shittu, Barron, Henry, Trotter ( Abdou 20 mins), Mkandawire, Puncheon (Craig 87 mins),  Morison, Andrew (Marquis 69 mins)

Scunthorpe United at home next. 

After a bitterly cold week, Sky cameras come to the Den to show to the 
world our league home clash with Scunthorpe United. I am not expecting
a big attendance for this one.

5/12/10 GAME 20  Millwall 3 Scunthorpe 0 att 8.937
Yep! I was right, it looks like our smallest league attendance of the season, 
I suppose because of the weather and because it was live on the telly.
It may be recorded as more due to people buying tickets and not being able to
make it.

Scunthorpe are not known for a large away support.

126 Scunthorpe fans

The game it self was frustrating to watch until Steve Morison  scored
his first goal in the game.  Millwall's play up to that point was rushed
and everybody was so keen to please in front of the camera's that the 
play was not measured or calculated.  Loads of effort and mostly hurried
play as I saw it. Scunthorpe never threatened.  Josh McQuiod started the
second half for his home debut and could have scored.
James Henry scored a 35 yard scorcher in the first half but even that did
not seem to settle the team and Morison had a moan when Dunne tried a
speculative shot when there was quite clearly other options. With about 
11 minutes to go to full time an individual run on goal by Morison saw 
the best play of the game and a super goal from the tightest of angles
gave the Lions a 2-0 lead. Superb 
That wrapped the game up and just to make sure shortly after Morison 
whacked in his second goal from near the front edge of the penalty box
and us fans went home singing........

*Oh  Stevie Stevie, Stevie Stevie Stevie Stevie Morison*

Scunthorpe were soundly beaten.

Millwall move into 11th place with 27 points.
I predicted a 3-0 win before the game so I am smoking a big cigar.

9/12/10 Game 21 Swansea 1 Millwall 1 att: 13.835
Friday night kick off.

With Steve Morison having the opportunity to score with two chances late
on in this game, Millwall may feel that this was two points lost than one 
point gained. With the loss of skipper Paul Robinson early odd through
injury Darren Ward come off the bench and helped to keep Swansea down
to just the one goal which they scored in the 17th minute. After a goal mouth
scramble Millwall equalised when Tamika Mkandawire drove a sweet shot
into the Swansea net. Millwall take 298 fans away for this game.


18/12/10  The snow came today and our home
match against Barnsley is called off. I went shopping with the missus instead.
26/12/10 Game 22  Portsmouth 1 Millwall 1 att 17,521
With five games now unbeaten Millwall nearly walk away with all three points at

28/12/10 Game 23  Millwall 2 Leicester City 0  att 12.188
At the half way point of the season Millwall extend their unbeaten run to six games.
With two first half goals from Steve Morison and Jason Puncheon we looked in
control and Leicester hardly threatened.

Alan Dunne is shown the red card after the Leicester players 
       pressure the Referee

Alan Dunne is showed the red card in the 54th minute for a two footed lunge
and the remaining ten players kept Leicester at bay. The Den crowd upped
the volume and we roared the Lions on to a well deserved victory.

                        P  W D  L  F   A  PTS
Millwall   23  8   8  7  28  23   32   = two points off the play offs

This seasons biggest crowd...16.170

1/1/2011 Game 24 Millwall 3  Palace 0 att 16.170 "this was worth the wait"
With the rumour mill working overtime that Steve Morisons absence was
due to him moving to join Fulham and not because he was riddled with flu
Jason Puncheon proved that he could score goals to as he drilled
three goals passed Speroni and sent the Den into orbit.
Even the loan signing Puncheon is is rumoured to be on he's way to
Newcastle United. We don't need this nonsense.

We sit in 7th place just outside the play off spots with 35 points and
undefeated in seven games.

Millwall look for their second goal

Yet another clean sheet for David Forde "quality"

Kenny Jacket speaks in post match interview and hopes Steve Morison
will be fit for this Mondays game against Derby County and he is hopeful
of extending Jason Puncheon spell at the Den.  George Burley sacked as Palace 
manager after the game.

ps I forgot to mention I was behind the goal for this game and the ball DID cross
the line so it should have been four nil.

3/1/2011 Game 25  Derby County 0 Millwall 0  att 24.239 another clean sheet

With Steve Morison back in the team and missing a early opportunity to score
Millwall maintain their undefeated run and extend it to eight games.  With the 
Lions dominating the first half and the Lions support making a lot of noise we
should have had all three points. Derby were lucky to get a point and if we were
a touch more clinical up front we could have won this game 3-0.
After earning 8 points over Christmas/new year the Wall finish the holiday period
with a total of 36 points, 

FA Cup next game.

8/1/2011 FA CUP 3rd round
It's 1.45am and I'm knackered but I am looking forward today's home game 
against Birmingham City in the FA cup. The last time we played Birmingham 
at the Den I queued for nine hours to get a ticket, this time five minutes and 
was done. We all remember the nonsense outside the ground at that encounter 
and no more of that thank you.
I am disappointed to hear that Jason Puncheon won't be re-signing for Millwall
as Southampton are being silly. Perhaps him scoring the hat trick against Crystal
Palace as worked against us.  Time for bed........

Millwall 1 Birmingham City 4  Att 9.841  I am not sure how we lost this game?
They work their socks off but Millwall get beat 4-1 and get clapped of the
pitch at the end of the game. Steve Morison yet again fails to score when 
opportunity calls and both our central defenders go off with hamstring 
problems and due to substitutions we finish the game with 10 men. 
Danny Schofield scores our goal, Josh McQuoid was cup tied.

A penalty save denies Steve Morison

Millwall Team  Forde, Smith, Shittu (Ward), Robinson, Craig (Scholfield), Henry,
 Abdou, Mkandawire, Barron, Morison, Harris (Lisbie)
14/1/2011 Game 26 Millwall 2 Ipswich 1  att 12.111

Fresh from a midweek win against Arsenal, Ipswich score the first goal
against a Millwall side missing it's defensive and midfield core of
Paul Robinson, Danny Shittu, Tamika Mkandawire and Liam Trotter. All
these players were missing due to injuries and hopefully they will be
back in the team shortly. The players who filled the hole done well and 
I would give the title of man of the match to Jack Smith who done superb.
With Danny Schofield's well taken goal just before half time Millwall go in 
at the break on level terms.
A superb Neil Harris was substituted on about 70 minutes and Theo
Robinson back at the Den took his place. With me and the rest of the home
fans urging the Lions to score their second goal Steve Morison obliged and
slotted in from close range. Ipswich forced a couple of excellent saves from
David Forde late on which made sure that Millwall are now undefeated for
nine Championship league games and sit just two points outside a play off spot.
Tony Craig did not emerge from the tunnel for the second half due to injury
and this will add to the growing list of unavailable players.

The Lions up for a corner

Well done the Wall

22/1/2011 Game 27  Leicester 4 Millwall 2 att 23.347

With the sports media and pundits purring over Leicester and their 4-2 win 
the fact that Millwall was missing the main core of it's defence was overlooked.
With Skipper Paul Robinson, Darren Ward, Tony Craig and Tamika Mkandawire
missing from the team and Liam Trotter not seen fit to start Millwall was
seriously understrength. 

Steve Morison yet again missed a penalty and it could have been all so different.
With James Henry scoring one of his customary specials from the edge of the
box Millwall could have a took a early 2-0 lead and perhaps could have won
the game. Jack Smith scored from the penalty spot in the 69th minute.

Loan signing Askuo who was fetched in to provide cover in defence while
the injured players were out gets sent off. "that was useful"
One of our best players against Ipswich was Neil Harris but he was bench
warming for this game and Kenny Jackett keeps him there.

28/01/2011 Game 28 Millwall 2 Barnsley 0 att 10,087 it was a cold night
This game was played on Friday evening due to a student demo in London on
Saturday. I think it was due to the police not having enough resources. This
game was postponed over the Christmas period so it was good to get it out of
the way. We should have been at least 4-0 up at half time but had to settle for
2-0 and that's how it finished. With names like Darren Purse and Craig Eastmond
in the starting eleven and players like Paul Robinson, Darren Ward, Tony Craig
still missing Millwall keep a clean sheet. Steve Morison scores the first goal
and could have had a hat trick while James Henry scores yet another of his
superb efforts which made sure we took all three points.

1/2/2011 Game 29 Norwich 2 Millwall 1 att 24,571  If only.......

One late goal and one very late goal both scored by Norwich sent the Lions 
home gutted. This now amounts to six away games that Millwall have taken 
the lead and ended up not winning the game. 
We need to go for that second goal and not try to defend a slender lead. 
Steve Morison get's injured early on in this game and sub Theo Robertson 
scores his first goal for Millwall as a proper Lion after signing a permanent 
deal after his earlier loan spell. Millwall were still without their key defenders. 
Millwall in ninth spot, 4 points outside the play off's.

5/02/2011 Game 30 Millwall 1 Doncaster 0 att. 11.427  Dockers Day

On a windy day at the Den and watched by a gaggle of past Millwall stars 
the Lions leave it late to secure the win. With players from the 87/88 
season watching from the stands the Lions finally overcome a stubborn 
Doncaster side and with James Henry providing the opportunity, Kevin 
Lisbie challenges and the ball glances of the head of Doncaster defender 
O'conner and then between the keeper and the near post.

Millwall sit just outside a play off spot with 45 points.

Sheffield awarding a dodgy penalty

With a fair size away support, Millwall supporters made their selves  heard 
inside and outside the ground a Lions win was close but not close enough. 
Kevin Lisbie sent the away support into orbit with his equaliser late on and 
even had the chance to give Millwall the win by heading just wide in the dying

An away win would have been nice.
After going a goal down in the third minute the Lions offered little in 
the way of scoring opportunities. With Neil Harris on for the second half 
he quickly put the Lions level and with a bit more luck he could have had 
a second. Reading scored again and Millwall went home with nothing.

08/03/2011 Game 36 Millwall 2 QPR 0 att 14.104

For a Tuesday night a attendance of 14.000+  was a good turn out. 
I suppose it helped that we were playing the top of the table side.
With ex Lion Loanee Shittu getting plenty of stick we were up for this one.
Following up on our well earn't draw at their place the Lions worked hard 
and tamed the "mighty" QPR.  After a fairly even contested first half the 
"Wall" turn up the pressure and desire and the West London opposition 
meekly fade and over half of the QPR support skulk away before the final 
whistle. It could have been 4-0

Shittu red carded 

With Morison fouled by Shittu in the box Trott's scores the resulting penalty and gets "coined 'by the QPR supporters behind the goal.

The 4th away win of the season.

A Paul Robertson brace and a Andros Townsend debut goal secures a fine win

The Millwall team that brushed aside in form Burnley were as follows:

The Lions finish the day on 53 points

Glorious day

19/03/2011 Game 38 Millwall 3 Cardiff 3 att 15.039

Following on from two excellent wins........
I was excepting a rip-roaring game as I took my position within the
West Stand but all I got in the half half was Zilch. Not much happened
apart from Lions skipper Robbo getting clobbered by Cardiff's David 
Bellamy and then getting booked for a tame "revenge tackle"
on bellamy which resulted in Robbo being substituted.

Robbo recovers but still see's double or it could be triple

The second half was a different kettle of fish, a Cardiff fan trying to 
sneak out early, six goals and Dunne getting set off made it one of the best 
2nd halfs I have ever seen. It's a shame we couldn't sneak a win. 
That's seven points out of nine which leaves us with 54 points and six points
off the play offs and next it's Hull away.

2/4/2011 Game 39 Hull 0 Millwall 1 att 19.852

Dare I believe....
This end of season push towards the play off's has practically gone
un-noticed with the media missing out on reporting this game due
to it being a 1 o/c kick off. The Lions sit just outside the play off's
with another superb performance. A Steve Morison "routine" ball over
the keepers head gave the Lions all three points which resulted in a
happy weekend for me and all that follow the Wall.

9/4/2011 Game 40 Millwall 3 Leeds 2 att 16.724
Leeds supporters gather to watch their side get beat

I think that I would be correct in saying that we were looking forward
to this one. With Millwall closing in on the play off's this tussle with
Larry Graysons team was not just a grudge match but a lot was riding
on the result.

"Come on the Wall"

For Millwall it meant sixty points and just a win away from the play off's
for Leeds it meant a chance to relax from looking over their shoulder
with a nervy eye at the Lions charging up behind them. The Lions were
ruthless from the start and with the wingmen Townsend and Henry with
stardust in their boots Leeds never stood a chance. Love it!

12/4/2011 Game 41 Millwall 0 Bristol City 0 att 11.108

Mustn't grumble, what a difference three days make
After the zippy free flowing game against Leeds us fans are brought
down to earth with a scrappy 0-0 bore draw. It would be easy to 
blame a poor performance on Bristols spoiling tactics but the truth
is we did not play that well and struggled to put a decent move 
together. Apart from that what was Steve Morison thinking of when
in extra time he earn't a red card and walked. I suppose it proves
how far we have come when a draw feels like we lost.

This result was unexpected for me as I was sure we would get something
from this game.

Carter scores the goal.

Oh Yes! back in the winning way
With me not being there it helped to contribute to a low crowd for this
televised game. This result brings millwall back in to the picture as they
push for a play off place. With Morison and Harris out of the side due to
red cards the young strikers Marquis and McQuoid do superb.

We can say goodbye to the play off's

A packed Cold Blow Lane know that there is no play off's for us but it's been a excellent season.

The Lions suffer their 5th home defeat of the season but KJ's name is sung
throughout the game.
The only seats that were empty were in the away end as we was looking 
forward to a Millwall win. I cannot say that were were all expecting a win
but I was. It didn't happen and Swansea stole the show. All in all not a bad
season back in the Championship and as I said a couple of time elsewhere
in my blogs "roll on August"

As always...proud to be a Millwall Supporter

oops! nearly forgot there's one more game to go away to Barnsley, I would
like us to win that game so we finish the season on 70 points.

Saying thanks 

8/5/2011 Game 46 Barnsley 1 Millwall 0 att 11,136

The 70 points was not to be as Millwall finish the season with a wimper. 
With 850 Lions fans making the journey the "Wall" failed to impress up front.

Millwall   Forde,  Dunne,  Ward, Robinson, Craig,  Townsend,  Mkandawire,  
         Abdou, Bouazza(Henry60),  McQuoid(Marquis 60),  Morison(Harris 73)

How we finished won 18drawn 13, lost 15, goals scored 62
goals conceded 48 and gained 67 points.

That's the season finished with and all in all it's been a good one. All there is to 
do now is sit back and post on the House of Fun and watch West Ham get 
relegated, oh happy days!
It's early June and Steve Morison leaves the Den and signs for Norwich City for
2.8 million. I am not to disappointed to see him leave as I felt that he never really
enjoyed his time at the Den and I think that it was felt by most fans that he was
not "Wall"  Can McQuoid or Marquis take over his role, maybe eventually but KJ
needs to obtain a replacement soon. 

Neil Harris signs for Southend on a three year deal which brings him security.
I am sorry to see him go but good luck to him. A true Millwall Legend who will
be recorded in history for evermore as a incredible Millwall player and a decent
bloke who always had time for the fans.
