Millwall vs. Hull – Come ON Millwall!Play for longer than 70 mins

Well done to Lee and Aiden.  Bad luck Steve.  But as a team we still seem to be playing 70 mins and the last 20 we become as full of holes as Emmental cheese.  This makes a lovely fondue but not a great scoreline.

Millwall vs. Forrest – Blackout didn’t help but effort did

Even with a 10 minute blackout to put the home team out of kilter we didn’t win.  The share of the points was due to late effort and alertness which is where we have been failing for the last few games so this is a super step in the right direction.

Forest went ahead after 27 mins and further ahead 2 mins after the lights came back on.  Shaun Williams headed one back and Lee Gregory saved us with 91st minute tap in.  All this with Morrison being rested on the bench and Jed Wallace who is on a match ban for 5 yellow cards I think.

We’re still in the drop zone though ☹️

The Millwall need a boost against Forest

Still not going very well, third from bottom only because of a less miserable goal difference.  Playing Forest at The City Ground this evening.  Come on you Lions!

Nemo nos amo sed morarmur nihil

Well this is not going very well

We’ve lost four of the last five and drawn one.  In the relegation zone even though I get the sense from watching the games that have been on tele and reviewing social media the team are working well together.  Are we just suffering a run of bad luck?

Who’s at the World Cup from The Millwall?

James Meredith

As I mentioned Harry Kane is captaining En-ger-land.  Tim Cahill is playing for the Socceroos and so is James Meredith.

So, who else from the Championship has two current and one ex-player at the World Cup?

Harry Kane at The Millwall in 2012

On 29 December 2011, Kane and Tottenham teammate Ryan Mason agreed to join Championship club Millwall on loan from 1 January 2012 until the end of the season.

After making his debut against Bristol Rovers, manager Kenny Jackett said that he had “very good debut” but was “unlucky not to score”. He also said that Kane would “be a good addition” for the club in the second half of the season.

This prediction became true as he scored seven goals in the final 14 matches of the season. Kane scored nine goals in 27 matches which resulted in him being named Millwall’s Young Player of the Year for 2011–12. His run of goals scored towards the end of the season has been credited with helping to raise Millwall in the table away from the threat of relegation that season.

Kane quote: “People were playing for their livelihoods. I’ll never forget the relief on everyone’s face   when we stayed up.

“It showed me how much the game could mean and that you have to do your job otherwise you won’t be in the game for long.

“To be thrown into that at 18 was really good and it’s one of the things that made me who I am today.”

World cup office sweepstake – Panama

Here is a link to the team.  The only thing wrong with them is that they’re “not very good”.

Best player – Could be Roman Torres, a defender who plays for the Seattle Sounders.  Or it might be Gabriel Torres who plays for CD Huachipato in Chile.

Coach – Hernan Gomez

Hat’s, they named some nice hats but you should know that Panama hats originate from and are made in Equador.
