It's hard not to get too carried away with this! We still have players to come back to strengthen defensive options, we have options in attack and we have money to spend! Really pleased for Alioski today to get a goal, great for his confidence as well. Profession leadership at the club and a quietly confident coach and an international break to settle everyone in!

And we are getting players in for the future, young talent not only in first team but youth squads as well. It is our time i think.

Just leaving the ground. Great game, could have gone either way we probably had slightly more chances. Great to have a coach who moves people around a bit. Interesting to see Hernandez and Saiz playing together and some really lovely touches together. Alioski, good game. We looked better in midfield, didn't lose control like we did against Preston in the first half. Shaunessy, had a good game again and made a couple of crucial interventions. Wood missed a couple of good opportunities. But three games no defeats and I think the boss is learning quickly. Thanks

Exactly New coach
New players Still bedding in Think we're a class above last years team and much more depth It's a marathon not a sprint Another CB and a LB would be nice but if not, I think this group will crack on

Brighton, latest club to be linked with Chris Wood. Hard to imagine that he will stay. Bound to be a few clubs interested in the premiership and could be other money floating around from other deals that clubs want to spend. A chance for him to play in the premiership again and negotiate a better pay deal! We need to be realistic and hopefully we have some other options lined up ready.

I honestly think woody is happy to stay How they celebrated the win yesterday looked like a group that wants to finish what they've started

I see a bit of a discussion going on here about, Griot, CBJ and the keeper. A bit like the discussions about Sacko. Managing a team of 30 plus personalities and egos is never easy in any job, but I think we have a very good manager who knows how to handle players. He doesn't seem to give up on people until he is absolutely sure and he gives chances but the emphasis is on performance. If any of the above players don't convince him, they won't stay here long! He has shown with CBJ that he won't play him just because of who he is or where he is from. Likewise Sacko got a break and another chance. Not saying TC doesn't make mistakes, probably could have tried a few diff faces for Millwall but pretty sure he will learn from them. Let's have confidence in him and let him manage.

No one mentioning Sacko re tonight's game. He's fit, surely he must be on the bench at least. A chance to see if he is learning anything from the training? Anyone got an update on him?

Spanishleeds

should be on the bench tonite at least - if not send him to Cultural for some more experience.


2.) 19 Sep 2017 19:07:50
He's in the squad.


3.) 19 Sep 2017 19:36:30
Roofe, Grot Dallas Seabiscuit, goals there i think.

For me, tonight is just part of the preparation for the rest of the season. A chance to give some players a break, try others, use some different ideas, all en route to getting back to winning ways on Saturday. I'm not bothered if we lose tonight, more bothered about making sure it helps not hinders our chances for Saturday. Hope some of the squad players use the opportunity to impress. Let's have a good performance, more learning and onto Saturday!

agreed - i'd play the second string tonight and maybe bring Saiz and Alioski on mid way through the second half if its still close

In Spain and able to watch the game on LUTV, mmm! Thought at first we were using the game as a defensive training session, which was ok until the goal went in and we continued with the defending. The highlight was the goalie, who dropped the ball for the disallowed goal but after that kept us in the game. Everyone else looked as if the alarm hadn't gone off and they had to rush to the stadium in their underpants. Perhaps we can blame this strip black and white together, where has that come from. Seriously though, still top of the table, it was Millwall and as I've been told all my life you can learn more from your bad days then your good ones and I think we do have the coach to do the thinking.

Good performance tonight, strong defensive display and we have that skill to snatch goals. These are the tough games that we need to win through in and we did. Not much time to regroup before Saturday but we might find that game suits our style more. At least another two players booked for fouling Saiz tonight, that will help us throughout the season. Alioski a bit off the pace tonight, obviously felt his international games. Nice to see him ripping up Milleall on Saturday. Good to see that Cardiff bubble burst a bit tonight as well. Well done to the team and TC, cracking start to the season and as Pontus would say, another brick in the wall!

Think we need to start singing a bit of pink Floyd at the end of games. All in all your just another brick in the wall!

I think you have to give some credit to our recruitment to date. We are picking up players cheaper precisely because they are not on everyone's radars, but we see some potential. Look at Alioski and Saiz compared with what is being paid for prem and championship players. The strikers are going to get opportunities so it's down to them to make the most of them and look at what we've done so far without them! On Sacko, surprised he hasn't gone out on a loan to get some game time. Last time I saw him at Elland road he seemed totally lacking in confidence and belief, complete contrast to Alioski.

PP, I've posted a few times that away from home our set up works well and we have more time and space on the wings. I have seen both home games and it's a lot tougher. But against Fulham TC responded with both Saiz and Hernandez and we looked better. Who we have in the Centre at home is key as well to getting control. The good thing is that TC is a thinker and you can see him trying to work situations out. a good start, a thinking manager and 15 Mill in the back pocket to spend!

No chance dougie, he's not going to stay and he is not going to be a legend. He had a good season largely putting away chances created by others. He has cashed in his chips and secured his retirement and I don't blame him for that, but the stuff of legends it isn't !

Definitely good management to start talking about new terms for Wood, puts the ball in his court!

I think with the Wood situation, it all depends! It depends on what the deals actually are in terms of cash now and future money, on how much Wood is really agitating to go and on what alternatives we already have on the table. Someone who really knows the answer to all of that then needs to make a judgement call, it becomes a business decision. Given the recruitment so far, I can't believe that they haven't thought about this as a possibility, therefore there should be a plan b, c, d etc. Or we have really decided that however much we get offered, how ever much Wood wants away, we are just going to say No. personally I think the latter is hard to believe so I hope we've got a good plan b, c and d!

Sacko comes on, Dallas switches to defence. Come on Sacko, give it a good go and run at them!

I agree, made a great contribution last year, sold him for a fair price, gone to the premiership and made a reasonable start. Good luck to him and onwards with the new team. A bit different with Taylor because of the way it was handled and he has not made the last two match day squads never mind the team! Hope he doesn't do his first team chances any good tonight! Not sure we will see Wood except for the bench or late cameo.

You are right to concentrate on the performance, very disappointing and surprising after the progress made to date. I think when people are referring to us still being top, it highlights the really good stuff to date that has taken us there. This was by far the worst performance this season and this time we couldn't change the game with substitutes, which was also worrying. I would probably have tried Viera in the second half, he can be aggressive and assert himself and it would have been interesting to see. I am sure the boss will be having a good long look at the game and coming up with some solutions.

Millwall have scored 4 against Norwich and 3 against Ipswich, so combined with the atmosphere, a real test for our defensive record. I'm going with explosive game, lots of yellow cards, at least one Millwall red, us winning 3-2! Probably be a boring 0-0. This could be a good game for one team winning at half time the other at full, 33-1!
