The Lions Continue Unexpected Ascent…

Well we are just over the halfway mark in the football season and Millwall find themselves in the unexpected position of a playoff place:

Not only that but we have two games in hand. Even two or three points from the six on offer in those games would really help to cement our status in the top six.

I would certainly have considered mid table an achievement after last season’s terrible showing.

Our minds were off league matters at the weekend as we crashed out of the FA Cup 2-0 away to Premier League side Hull City. As if that wasn’t bad enough ‘fans’ from both sides were arrested for trouble and seats were ripped out in the away end and chucked at Hull fans.

I really hoped we’d seen the last of all this nonsense – over the years Millwall have garnered a reputation for this sort of thing but in the last few years trouble has been minimial (or least no more so than any other team) and the club itself has worked hard to shake the image.

I doubt these moronic events will ever leave football in general, which is a shame when it’s often innocent fans that end up getting caught up in the crossfire.

On to more positive notes and it was back to the league on Tuesday night (27th Jan) with a great 2-0 away win at Hereford. These are the kinds of games you have to get results in to have any hope of maintaining a playoff push.

A big congratulations to Neil Harris who overtook former Lion Teddy Sheringham as the clubs all time highest goal scorer with 112 in all competitions. 😎

A fitting accolade for the man who turned down a £4m move to Spurs to stay at Millwall before his battle with testicular cancer and who has been a Lions legend for many years.

A true footballing legend.
