Not ideal, but could have been a lot worse. Definitely winnable. Nothing to fear.

One of the best draws we could've hoped for. A real chance of Wembley now we have a proper manager and an organised and fit team!

How ironic we should have been at Millwall that weekend anyway,
it will give us a bit of practice for when we go there again for our league game.
I would rather have promotion but if we can pick a cup up on the way
what the hell, lets go for it!!!!

Hi Iiii1111 ;-)

In answer to your early question - did I go to AFC ?

No mate, don't do the gooners although wish I had !

Great win for the Appleton fellows, and a great win for yourself, sir. A fine, fine day.

Yes, Milwall is not a bad draw would have taken that before.

What a fantastic chance for the beleagured b'stards of Blackburn to march onto Wembley.

Lets get Bentley into fitness and form to supply Rhodes and Co - on we go.

A good evening to you.

No fear.

Totally agree with the above....set for the weekend we should have played them in the league....maybe they could agree to a double whammy to save a return trip for the fans !

Sure does come "thick & fast" over the next month....no wonder Appleton is hoping for more players to replace some of the dead-wood in the squad he inherited....still there is lots of positives happening right now and hope this well bring us the results in the league over the next 3/4 weeks....a BIG ask that needs a BIG response from the supporters....COYB..
..Wembley is indeed in your sights and there if the "will" is.....

The last time i was at the old den was 1987 / 1988 and we had to win the last game of the season to make the playoffs.
Millwall were 2nd Division champions and we beat them 4.1

Well who could have predicted this, to start the season under that idiot Kean, and five managers later, in the same season, in with a chance of three Wembley appearances, before the season is over. Perhaps there really is a football God.

Fantastic result yesterday at Arsenal. Well done to Michael Appleton and the lads and not forgetting the back room staff. Got to admit I was sh:tutting myself at the draw earlier but pretty pleased we got drawn with milllwall. I will admit to being sceptical when MA was announced as manager not knowing much about him but I am pretty pleased we appointed him as our manager although credit where credit is due, thanks to the upper management team at rovers mainly I think due to Derek shaw who was the mastermind of the plan. Again I thank MA, the team and upper management and long may it continue.

Great songs RR and some not so great memories of trips to Millwall. Back in the seventies if we took three car loads then that was considered a good travelling support to Millwall games. You hardly ever saw an 'idenifiable' Rovers fan everyone adopted a southern 'mockney' accent but Northerners still stood out like a beacon and it wasn't long into the game before the Den Baling-hook crew found you. Tough times. I remember one Rovers fan - Clive Wallwork? - getting his face slashed down there in the eighties also..and its not too much better at the New Den now to be honest. Horrible place to build a new football stadium.
I recall the first couple of verses to the song you named Mr W:
F*** them All, F*** them All
The Leeds and the Spurs and Millwall....

you two crusty old scrotes!

personally - never had a problem at the old den - or new one.

great drinking at market porter (borough market) and the george inn (off borough high st).....marvellous!

first game there for me was that game where we needed to win to get in play-offs - they had just won the league to get promoted as champions to 1st division.....they were still drunk, both fans AND PLAYERS! won 4-1 scorers chris price(?), simon garner x2, simon barker (who then left for qpr) we had around 500-600 there - millwall fans ran on pitch at end and towards us but stopped at edge of pitch.

went to another at old den and a pal of mine took us into the supporters club bar - could not have been more friendly

then there was a cup match in the early 00s at new den - we won 1/0 andy cole(?) - remember walking back to south bermondsey station and the local monkeys were wrecking a traffic warden's van that the bloke had clamped loads of their cars during the game.

woody only had a tough time - cos he sung to them.

Evening Mr French...

Now will be at this game, tickets available, of course ?

Should be plugging the club for free transport down if the allocation is big numbers ?

Hull Tuesday, pal ;-)

Really looking forward to the games at the moment.

Phew, glad it's not as stated above that of the 70/80's. Bleeding hard work !

Great songs RR and some not so great memories of trips to Millwall. Back in the seventies if we took three car loads then that was considered a good travelling support to Millwall games. You hardly ever saw an 'idenifiable' Rovers fan everyone adopted a southern 'mockney' accent but Northerners still stood out like a beacon and it wasn't long into the game before the Den Baling-hook crew found you. Tough times. I remember one Rovers fan - Clive Wallwork? - getting his face slashed down there in the eighties also..and its not too much better at the New Den now to be honest. Horrible place to build a new football stadium.

you two crusty old scrotes!

personally - never had a problem at the old den - or new one.

great drinking at market porter (borough market) and the george inn (off borough high st).....marvellous!

first game there for me was that game where we needed to win to get in play-offs - they had just won the league to get promoted as champions to 1st division.....they were still drunk, both fans AND PLAYERS! won 4-1 scorers chris price(?), simon garner x2, simon barker (who then left for qpr) we had around 500-600 there - millwall fans ran on pitch at end and towards us but stopped at edge of pitch.

went to another at old den and a pal of mine took us into the supporters club bar - could not have been more friendly

then there was a cup match in the early 00s at new den - we won 1/0 andy cole(?) - remember walking back to south bermondsey station and the local monkeys were wrecking a traffic warden's van that the bloke had clamped loads of their cars during the game.

woody only had a tough time - cos he sung to them.
What will all the haters and stay aways do if we do get to wembley?

They will all come crawing back with their tails between their legs.

In answer to your early question - did I go to AFC ?

No mate, don't do the gooners although wish I had !

Great win for the Appleton fellows, and a great win for yourself, sir. A fine, fine day.

Yes, Milwall is not a bad draw would have taken that before.

What a fantastic chance for the beleagured b'stards of Blackburn to march onto Wembley.

Lets get Bentley into fitness and form to supply Rhodes and Co - on we go.

A good evening to you.

No fear.

We've been this close before, with a great chance of getting to Wembley.
I can't help thinking that a knowledgeable manager would forfeit this game though!
Eh?!

A 'knowledgeable' manager would try to win both games.

Only a pretender (ie Kean) would even considering forfeiting any game.

Some hard places up and down this land Millwall always gave me the willies not to mention Cardiff ! This time we go in numbers to watch our great beleaguered club - he he Arte et labore[/p][/quote]you two crusty old scrotes! personally - never had a problem at the old den - or new one. great drinking at market porter (borough market) and the george inn (off borough high st).....marvellous! first game there for me was that game where we needed to win to get in play-offs - they had just won the league to get promoted as champions to 1st division.....they were still drunk, both fans AND PLAYERS! won 4-1 scorers chris price(?), simon garner x2, simon barker (who then left for qpr) we had around 500-600 there - millwall fans ran on pitch at end and towards us but stopped at edge of pitch. went to another at old den and a pal of mine took us into the supporters club bar - could not have been more friendly then there was a cup match in the early 00s at new den - we won 1/0 andy cole(?) - remember walking back to south bermondsey station and the local monkeys were wrecking a traffic warden's van that the bloke had clamped loads of their cars during the game. woody only had a tough time - cos he sung to them.[/p][/quote]you might be right there Hass....I was singing along with Woody at Ashton gate earlier this season and I couldn't make my mind up if he sounded like Julie Andrews or Eamon Andrews.... :-) Sorry Mr.W only jesting!
