    The way things are going Holloway could have been bulleted by QPR and appointed as your next manager by the time you play wall again! <doh>

    It does, and I think that played a part in getting him from a park to championship football within 18 months. Right nows he's been devoid of continued guidance/management and at risk of not finding his best position. Wednesday was his 5th position for us in less than a year.

    Revealing comments from Millwall manager Neil Harris after their 3-0 FA Cup win over Bournemouth reserves yesterday.

    " I would swap this result for a win at Charlton next Saturday"

    :1980_boogie_down:

    Interesting - because the likes of TC will tell us that beating their local rival (for now) doesn't matter to the Ben Sherman Brigade - although those of us who witnessed their celebrations at the New Den 3 weeks ago always knew otherwise <cheers>

    A plea to Karl Robinson - if you do plan to spend this week talking up the derby, can you make sure our players turn up please.

    Have a feeling this will be our long awaited win. I have also thought this about our last half dozen meetings.

    Tony Watt winner, which he will celebrate by two footing Harris.

    I heard Neil Harris might give the 1st team the day off for this one - try to make it a bit more competitive <ok>

    This will be our 11th meeting this century the other 10 - Millwall won 6 and 4 draws <laugh>

    Good luck with the Council meeting on Wednesday night. South London needs Millwall in South London and not Kent.

    Why does everyone expect a Millwall win? They always take 4 points from us, which means a draw.

    That was before we were super **** in League One. They got players and a manager who knows how to step up for a derby match.

    We got Katrien and Roland who think, don't matter about the results or who's playing. It's a place where I can socialise with people, on average, every two weeks.

    Guardian did their research by reading Private Eye.
    If Millwall do get evicted it will be due to Market Forces, will it not?

    Generally would be because of corporate greed. Property is valuable!

    I think that football stadiums should be listed buildings, especially the old ones. Many are iconic, and part of our heritage as a country. Amount of times we go to away games because you want to see the stadium rather than the team*.

    They need to be protected to avoid what happens in sports like NFL where teams can leave and move cities. Also need to stop building these terrible bowl/oval stadiums. They're horrible and soulless.

    *EDIT: Especially when your team is doing ****e.

    I'm feeling more confident by the day.

    Either way, can't be worse than the game I went to on weds - fiorentina. Absolutely pathetic.

    Am going tomorrow and actually looking forward to it.
