  1. I know it's very early, what with about two and a half odd months until the beginning of the 2017 / 18 campaign, but do you reckon we'll get first game of the season? I've got a feeling we'll get a repeat of last season's Play Off Final, ending up with Hull. I also reckon we'll be waiting some time for the derbies next season, playing Blades in December and April.
  2. I like our style at the moment. The build up play can be very attractive to watch at times. The way we keep the ball is something many teams can only wish to see. My main gripe is with our lack of killer instinct. We have players that can score from any position. We have the likes of Fletcher, Rhodes and Hooper that are natural finishers, but we also have the likes of Bannan and Wallace that can score from range when the ball doesn't get that far forward. Despite this, we rarely scored more than twice a game this season. To me, this is where we need to improve. Not by recruitment, but through training and mentality.
  3. Problem with that model is you become very predictable, and easy to play against.
  4. Difficult to tell, as he's not been given the chance to pair with anyone. I love Bannan, and think he works his testicles off, and gets some undue stick from the fans, but he's had points where he's been out of form. I'd be putting Hutch at the back anyway, so Abdi and Lee in the centre, should he be able to knock Bannan out of position.
  5. They're the only two clubs that really continuously act the way they do and get so much potection for it. I have no idea why the FA continue to ptotect these clubs' fans. They really are giving the impresion that what they are doing is fine.
  6. Yep, that'll work!
  7. What about when Hutch is inneviatbly banned or injured? Or when Bannan is is injured or not on form? Abdi's chance to shine.
  8. 100% Pretty sure we got fined, and had capacity reduced because of Palace at home. What happens when Millwall regularly ruin people's match experience? Get awarded 'Family Club Of The Year'. It's almost like they're trying to convince the world that they're innocent and misunderstood. They're not. Usually if something happens it's because there's either high tension due to the occassion, or because the fans are getting pent up due to being treat like bobbar. That's not the case with Millwall. They think it's still the 70s, and they can go anywhere and act the idiot.
  9. How do we end up with such a 5hit3 discussion?! Are you taking the p1ss?
  10. Agree with this, but he joined many of his former team mates, so the bedding in would have been much easier for him here than at many other clubs.
  11. I have no idea why the reserve league got ditched. It's a shame. It'd keep those on the fringe in shape, and match ready.
  12. Abdi is absolute magic when fit and played in position. I was so excited to see him this season after seeing him play against Port Vale in the pre season fixture. Gutted not to have seen stamp his mark on this season. Fingers crossed he gets back to full fitness, and can excite us next season.
  13. Aint that what the reserves used to be for?
  14. Continuous fines and playing behind closed doors will be the only way to effectively punish those that keep on acting up. Having seen the French fans getting in when their team plays behind closed doors, I can only imagine it will encourage Millwall fans to attempt similar. However, for all the time that nothing is being done, the FA are effectively communicating to their idiots that what they continue to do is ok.
  15. There's a whole summer of transfers to go yet, so it will be completely different come August. But, if you're going to predict how clubs will react during the summer: 1 - Middlesbrough 2 - Wednesday 3 - Villa 4 - Norwich 5 - Hull 6 - Ipswich
