The tale end of the 2009/2010 season....
With big crowds and lots of proper 'Wall exciting football and a couple of dodgy results the run in has been riveting and it has been quiet easy to forget that this is the 3rd tier of English football. The electrifying noise at the game against Huddersfield was something else and was equal too if not louder than when we won the old 2nd division title in 1988. That was loud, I have it on audio tape.
24/4/10 Millwall v Leyton Orient, a near packed Cold Blow Lane stand
Even though the new stadium is laid out neat and tidy at times it can match the atmosphere of the old Den.
2009-2010 season English football league Division one
(3rd tier of league football)
Three games to go, we are sitting in 3rd spot and we just lost 0-1 away to Huddersfield Town. Every other result in the top six more or less went our way so nothing lost. Next game is home to Leyton Orient, it is a must win game.
April 23rd St. George's day.
The games tomorrow I have my ticket and I am ready to go.
April 25th Sunday. ( total buzzing)
The red shirts of Orient prepare to be mauled
Millwall 2 Leyton Orient 1
"Great stuff" but it should have been more. Milwall are still in with a decent chance to gain automatic promotion, once again the next game away to Tranmere Rovers next Saturday is a must win. Still in 3rd spot as Leeds (arch rivals) beat MK dons.
3rd May Two days after the dismal display by the team up at Tranmere I still cannot understand why there seems to be a problem with the team performing. The referee was absolute useless and favoured Tranmere with every decision but that was no excuse to lose the game 2-0. We can still achieve 2nd spot if we beat Swindon Town at the Den for the last game of the season but Leeds must lose or draw when they play Bristol Rovers. The worse outcome is Millwall in the play offs.
7th May The day before the Swindon game and I'm ready. Please Please Please Millwall.
The red shirts of Swindon prepare to be mauled
9th May A good 3-2 win by the team and a good crowd (17, 068) finished the league season on a high but Leeds Utd won there game so now it's the playoffs and Huddersfield Town over two legs, I am over the moon with that. I shook the hand of Chairman John G Berylson just before kick off and that was a pleasure.
15th of May...Tomorrow we are away to Huddersfield in the play offs and I would take a draw.
Over two legs
17th May A decent 0-0 draw at Huddersfield yesterday, now it's back to our place tomorrow night. We should do it.
Yes we done it! What a night the Wall beat Huddersfield 2-0 and the place was rocking. Wembley here we come and once again we play Swindon.
More red shirts prepare to be mauled this time it's Huddersfield Town
It's Saturday evening and Blackpool have just made it to the Premier Division by beating Cardiff at Wembley, it's got me in the mood for football. My Wembley ticket is secure and I am going by coach leaving from Millwall, I have never done this before so this will be a buzz. (Thanks Paul)
Hopefully next Saturday will be overcast with a touch of drizzle, we don't want a day in the sun, we want Millwall to win. I think it's going to be a long week!
It's Friday night, tomorrow is Wembley and I have a beer. My lucky blue pants are ready to wear and I am well psyched up. What will I be writing after the game? hopefully a Millwall win. Time will tell.
Mini bus from the old Barnaby pub Saturday morning Wembley here we come. Weather cooling since the recent mini heatwave that saw Blackpool and Cardiff playing in temperatures of over 105f . That's hot! I would struggle picking up a beer in that heat.
29/5/10 Yeeesssss......1-0 Millwall win the game and the Championship here we come, Great support, Wembley was rocking with the sight and sound of Millwall. The team was solid and deserved the win.
The red(white) shirts of Swindon once again prepare to be mauled
For some reason Swindon played in white?
