Day out in the capital is what I'm looking forward to here. On the 7.41 down there and 8.55 back so predicting I will be skint and hammered come Sunday morning.

As for the game, Millwall started poorly but think they will come good. Would take a point here

1-1 & 500 away fans.

Slightly better against Scunthorpe at the weekend, but I think it speaks volumes that most fans are at a loss to what side we'll put out on Saturday.
Agree with your prediction. 1-1.

Yeah I think we'll look for the point here. Is Novak likely to be fit? I don't really know the extent of his injury

It was a blow to the face so assuming nothing serious (ie broken bones) I'd expect him to start.

Out Saturday night, festival @ Clapham Common Sunday night. Football is taking a rather humble back seat this weekend.

Haha damn you who are able to get to games every week!!

Any reccomendations for decent boozers on route London lads? Get into St Pancras so will make our way on Northern Line to London Bridge think it is only 4 stops - any reccomendations to get off enroute there? If not will probably have a few round Kings Cross/Euston then head down to London Bridge before the game.

Our lot seem to like a London away day on the train so should be a few I reckon!

Borough Market near London Bridge is good for a few ales.

Yes i've been there, good little boozer. There's a few around London Bridge station, but if you're coming into St Pancras/Kings Cross i prefer drinking round there.

Is the Flying Scotsman at Kings Cross not to your liking?

Was going to go in the other night after fulham while we were waiting for the last train and then thought what the fuck am i doing so went in millers across the road instead.

Never been to 'the den' so looking forward to ticking this one off.

Will be interesting to see whether oneil comes straight into the team, personally I think we'll go with the same team that started against Rochdale, Lee Novaks fitness permitting.

Who are Millwalls players to look out for?

Score prediction: 2-0 Oshea and Ebanks-Blake

Largely underperforming at the moment, but we do have a few good Championship level players still on our books:

Jordan Archer & David Forde - Both keepers are very decent for this level. Forde is/was Ireland's no.1 goalkeeper and has been around for donkeys years with us. Archer is an exciting young keeper signed from Spurs. Scottish U21 international and was outstanding vs Barnet and Scunthorpe.

Shaun Williams - Talented but unpopular due to reputedly dodgy attitude.

Fred Onyedinma - One of the best talents at this level. Goes past people for fun, scores goals and excites people. Won't be with us for long.

Steve Morison - A genuine 20 goal a season forward at this level. Strong and deceptively fast and has a very good record for us. Will likely be our top scorer this year.

I am sure the Flying Scotsman will get a flying visit before the 8.55 train home.

Brilliant result. Jayo quite clearly benefiting from a gaffer that has 100% confidence in him.

Bring on Wigan.

Angel Martinez is fucking awesome by the way. Shouldn't be in League One.

Four home defeats on the spin. My dad said Chesterfield were poor, had two chances all game and took both of them. I suppose it's hard to tell when you make even Barnet look like world beaters. The quality in this league is obviously far inferior to the Championship, but then we look a shadow of the side that finished the last campaign.

Really worried. Harris looks out of his depth. The team selections and tactics are looking increasingly desperate. Not quite sure how we turn this around.

Maybe five years ago. Shaun Williams, David Forde and Steve Morison are living off reputation alone. Neither have shown anything resembling quality at this level so far. Fred is great but is only 18. He had a poor game this afternoon and will have many more as he gains professional experience. We can't rely on him.

Protests outside the ground, people calling for our CEO Andy Ambler to be sacked.

Levees are starting to break. About fucking time.

Pound in the pint glass type of establishment.

Absolute shithole but it's great.

That's an alright result isn't it?

Dean Saunders is seemingly a decent manager despite the wrist-slashing that met his appointment.

Good result without really getting out of 2nd gear, wasn't a great match at all. Being shitfaced helped though, made it a decent atmosphere. Good day out and I really enjoyed London Bridge in particular, some great boozers.
