Isn’t it great to have a manager who doesn’t like what he’s seeing and actually makes positive and sensible substitutions. It won’t always come off but at least he tries!
A refreshing change from the last one who’d have a sub stripped off for 10 minutes then sit him down again!

I just cannot cope with utter shite performances, mainly from the managers, who year in year out, week in week out, for season after season make such basic bad decisions, it is unbearable. Today a case in point. Why when we played a high pressing game with massive early success on Saturday would we not do the same today. Was Eustace overthinking it?
Why would Mcclaren find a way for us to be scoring goals with 3 at the back and Smith and Wells up front (yes we lost but we played great and were unlucky ), then deviate would from that? Why would he play against a team on strike with a centre forward and two wide players who hugged the touchline and no one in midfield backing up the centre forward?
Why was Steve Palmer played in centre midfield forever? Why was Karl Henry, possibly the most
limited midfielder of all time, played for season after season?
Why has our best player Freeman been played wide and totally negated for weeks (except Leeds)?
Why do we never turn up and roll our sleeves up at Brentford or Fulham?
Why have any number of players constantly been played out of position over the years when we can all see where they should be playing?
I swear I could do a better job than the lot of them (Warnock excluded).
And whilst I am about it, why are we the only club that I know that cedes noise and support behind the goal to the oppo fans and stick our loud ones in the bloody corner? They’re always noisier than ours, through no fault of theirs. Go to villa, Everton, Liverpool, Arsenal, Norwich, Newcastle and countless other places and you’re stuck in a godforsaken low or high corner or on the side because, do you know what, it means the oppo fans can’t see and can hardly be heard. Why not stick them in the corner of ellerslie and give our fans both ends
And another 500 and odd quid for next year to be served up guaranteed shit and heartache. If I could be bothered to go on, I could be here all night.

And I didn’t think I’d ever say that, having disliked the Pulis years so much.
They were rightly down to 10, but played with no cynicism after that, went for the win, no time-wasting. Admittedly the game was shocking due to us being so sh1t (why would you not bring Eze in in those circumstances?) but I liked the way that went for it.

As much as I admire what McClaren has done, that was a poor performance from him today.. we had tired, underperforming players, and the game was crying out for early fresh legs and pace, but nothing was done. Oteh and Bright were stripped off on 55 mins but he bottled it
|Millwall fans' football shirts (or lack of them)|
at 08:02 20 Sep 2018
I'm probably the only one not in the know, but literally, none of them wore a football shirt.
Don't wear them so can't be easily identified as Millwall by the police? Too "cool" to wear them?

as a bit of a joke, instead of walking down Bloomfontein Avenue to get to Ellerslie Road, I said to my son that (in a pathetic effort to change our fortunes), I would walk along Bloemfontein Road rather than Avenue, and he decided to walk on the other side than we usually along Avenue. And, of course, it worked, so it is all down to my new lucky routine. Can anyone else stake that sort of claim, or was it all down to us two?

but I detest Norwich. Still scarred by their delight at ruining our title run in 1976 and by that cheating basterd Grant Holt a generation later

|What fun...but a word of caution|

That was as much as I have enjoyed a game and a performance in a very long time. And individual performances to excite, particularly Freeman and Luongo.
However, that 'formation' surely cannot possibly work. For all the world it looked like a flat back 4,
With 4 across the middle. But it wasn't, as whilst we had Wszolek wide right, we had no one on the left covering bidwell, as Freeman was given licence to roam, which he did magnificently.Well, actually, we sort of did, as bidwell played mostly left half and Lynch covered him whilst he went on jaunts. But that meant that we had two centre halves playing 40 yards apart on many occasions. Ok, Scowen filled in to an extent but not enough and we will be wide open if teams play through us and if we are pushing on and lose possession.
But I've no false hopes this season so if we carry on entertaining like that, that'll do for me
|Ollie just on Talksport|

sounded incredibly flat - actually, "exhausted" would be a better description. I'm not feeling good about the upcoming weeks
|Excited for the future|
at 10:47 3 Feb 2017
for the first time in ages, I am actually looking forward to seeing my team play. I see the green shoots of recovery, youngsters being given a chance and, above all, we are starting to be entertained, which is, frankly, all I want. If Ollie can get us playing like his Blackpool team, happy bloody days!

Would love to know just how much ground he covered tonight. Amazing energy and drove the team on. Really good performance by the lad
|Anyone remember us having two worse full backs?|
at 10:52 29 Dec 2016
Boswell is a huge disappointment (I still have no clue how a professional footballer can be that lazy that they can't practice hard enough to at least be able to kick and tackle with the 'wrong' foot) and, as for Perch..:
They offer nothing offensively either, yet another gaping hole in our offensive options
|Another afternoon wasted - Henry plays|
at 14:16 15 Oct 2016
So I'm turning around, decided not to go to a wonderful afternoon's racing at ascot on the basis that he couldn't possibly play Henry. But no , he's obviously a much better player than Luongo or frankly anyone on the bench (including the terminally useless Caulker) . I'd rather have the sub keeper in the middle of midfield. I absolutely fcking despair
