Millwall and Kenny Jackett. Championship 2011-2012

4/10/2011 Ten Game round up or how I see it so far.

DWDLDLDLLL = 7 POINTS = NOT VERY GOOD but we and John G Berylson show our support for KJ

There has been a improvement since we lost to Derby County but this improvement has still resulted in two more defeats. On another day we could have nicked points from Watford and Burnley.
With a poll on the popular supporters forum site 'HOF' backing Kenny Jackett by a whopping 96%, I think proves that supporters have a lot of time for this man and we want him to stay.

I think it's time to dig out my old Lucky Blue Socks

I believe that things will turn around. The Millwall crowd will have a big part to play 'home and away'.
I think it's time to hunker down, show our support for KJ, roar on the Lions and let's be up there by Christmas. Making predictions in football can result in a bite on your arse and egg on your face, but I see us in about 10th or 11th spot by Christmas. A bit of a dream perhaps, but I think we have the manager, players and supporters to do it.

Millwall Supporters wandering home, maybe wondering where the next three points is coming from

I suppose the long and short of it all is that our next 10 games need to be a whole lot better in terms of results if we are going to get anywhere near my prediction. I will have to wait and see.
I have just trawled through last seasons 2010-2011 page on my other Millwall Blog, following millwall fc and found this...
From the 5th league game to the 17th league game DDLLDDWLWLLDL we pulled out of that slump, who's to say we cannot do it again.

After the International break and it's the start of the next ten games.
15/10/11 Game 11 Away to Boro and it's a 1-1 D
18/10/11 Game 12 Home to Brighton and it's a 1-1 D
22/10/11 Game 13 Away to Leicester and it's a Millwall 3-0 W
29/10/11 Game 14 Home to Ipswich and it's a Millwall 4-1 W
01/11/11 Game 15 Home to Coventry and it's a Millwall 3-0 W
I am tempted to say," I new the team had it in them". That's five of the second batch of ten games undefeated and eleven points in the bank. We move to 15th in the table.
05/11/11 Game 16 Away to Blackpool and it's a 1-0 Millwall L
That's still eleven points from this second batch of ten games as Millwall suffer their first defeat in six.
20/11/11 Game 17 Home to Bristol City and it's a Millwall 1-0 L
26/11/11 Game 18 Away to Crystal Palace and it;s a 0-0 D
29/11/11 Game 19 Home to Doncaster Rovers and it's a 3-2 Millwall W

03/12/11 Game 20 Away to Leeds United and it's a 2-0 Millwall L
That's 15 points from the second batch of ten games so pleased that we have improved, but we are still near the bottom of the table DDWWWLLDWL=15 POINTS=IMPROVEMENT

Third batch of ten games
I may as well keep this going : I am hoping for a bigger tally of points than 15, we shall see
10/12/11 Game 21 Home to Cardiff and it's a 0-0 D
17/12/11 Game 22 Away to Hull and it's a 2-0 L one point from six so far "that's not good"
26/12/11 Game 23 Home to Portsmouth and it's a 1-0 W
That's only one defeat in three, but only 4 points, so that's good but not so good
31/12/11 Game 24 Home to Palace and it's a 1-0 L, watching this game was painful.
3/1/12 Game 25 Away to Bristol City and it's a 1-0 L, getting beat near the end of extra time was also painful, especially after all the chances we had. We need a striker or two after just one goal in five games.
With just four points after this 3rd batch of ten games, perhaps the transfer window will bring a surprise.

FA CUP away to Dagenham and Redbridge and it's a sell out.....

7/1/12 FA Cup 3rd round Dagenham 0 Millwall 0 .A bit of a slog but it's back to our place

14/1/12 Game 26 Home to Birmingham City and it's a 6-0 L Bloody Referee's

17/1/12 FA Cup 3rd round replay Millwall 5 Dagenham 0 and it's Southampton in the next round

21/1/12 Game 27 away to Barnsley and it's a 3-1 W Henderson scores his 3rd hat trick of the season

28/1/12 FA Cup 4th round home to Southampton and it's 1-1,back to their place.

31/1/12 Game 28 Home to Watford and it's a 2-0 L for the Lions. We were clueless
04/2/12 Game 29 Away to West Ham and it's a 2-1 L Claret's win with given goal
07/2/12 FA Cup 4th round replay Southampton 2 Millwall 3 superb display by the Lions. Bolton next.

11/2/12 Game 30 Home to Derby and it's a 0-0 D That takes us to only eight points for the 3rd batch of ten games, which is a disappointing as we have shown no improvement with this part of the season. DLWLLLWLLD=8 POINTS= DISAPPOINTING 

The start of the next batch of ten games, let's see if we beat eight points
14/2/12 Game 31 Brighton 2 Millwall 2 a good display and Millwall earn a D

18/2/12 FA Cup 5th round Millwall 0 Bolton 2 att.11,320 (1,054)
I was looking forward to a rip-roaring display by the Lions but although we seemed to have most of the game our attacking play was somewhat lacking.

21/2/12 Game 32 Millwall 1 Middlesboro 3 att. 9,286 We were poor especially the first half, I don't want to spend time talking about this game apart from it's a L.
25/2/12 Game 33 Burnley 1 Millwall 3 and it's a well earn't W 'for such a display it should be worth a extra point
03/03/12 Game 34 Millwall 1 Reading 2 losing at home yet again means another bloody L
06/03/12 Game 35 Peterborough 0 Millwall 3 three goals away from home secure a W
10/03/12 Game 36 Notts Forest 3 Millwall 1 concede three away from home and it's a L
17/03/12 Game 37 Millwall 2 Southampton3 two late penalties sink the Lions and it's a L

20/03/12 Game 38 Doncaster0 Millwall3, goals from Keogh, Kane and Henderson and a W

24/03/12 Game 39 Millwall 0 Leeds 1 should have guessed it, another home L

31/03/12 Game 40 Cardiff 0 Millwall 0 last game of the forth batch of ten and it's a 0-0 D

4th batch of ten DLWLWLLWLD

Eleven points earn't from these ten games and it reads so far.........

First batch of ten games 7 points

Second batch of ten games 15 points

Third batch of ten games 8 points

Forth batch of ten games 11 points

A grand total of 41 points and just outside the relegation zone.

Six games to go, it would be nice to finish these last six games with a better points return than

that's gone before.

The last Six games

07/4/12 Game 41 Millwall 2 Hull City 0, and at long last it's a home W
10/4/12 Game 42 Portsmouth 0 Millwall 1, according to Robbo this one for us W
14/4/12 Game 43 Millwall 2 Leicester 1, three wins on the trot and it's another W

A dream come true, Millwall winning three on the bounce,a Saturday night to get sloshed and a massive grin!!
That's us mathematically safe with 50 points-I would like to see us push-on and finish the season strong. Not sure the players could do it as they have worked bloody hard to avoid relegation and are probably thinking about holidays. I don't blame them.

Pushing on.....
17/4/12 Game 44 Coventry o Millwall 1 the fourth win on the spin and it's a W
21/4/12 Game 45 Ipswich 0 Millwall 0, five wins another clean sheet and another W and 56 points
28/4/12 Game 46 Millwall 2 Blackpool2 A decent game of football to finish off the season. The thoughts of relegation was long gone as the Lions finish seventeen points above the drop and one point above Palace. Not to sure what all the fuss was about as KJ and the team have shown their metal.

57 POINTS and a well earn't holiday
