Definitely not to expect the same start as against WBA.

Graham will be on the bench along with Brereton so Gallagher with Armstrong will start. Samuel's finding form but not strong enough for Millwall. Davenport's a must start as the lad has/wants to show what he can do before season ends.

2 3 (Armstrong, Davenport & Brereton)

If I was the manager before the Millwall game I would take the team to Wembley and say to them . This is where you could have glory , or you could end up not winning at Millwall. Take your pick.

Let’s just hope for better than that FA Cup QF a few years back. Odds on to reach Wembley and we completely bottled it. 
To think, Wigan went on to win it all

Crappleton football is the worst iv'e seen in the last 10 years i don't care what anyone says.  I understood what he was trying to do but it was all wrong for the personnel we had.

Millwall  2    Rovers  2

Think 'tombola' Tony is going to be at it again:

These are young professional athletes and if they can't manage two games a week then I think it's a p1ss poor effort.

Leading tennis players will spend up to 20 hours s week on court in a highly competitive, physical and mental sport.  Tony seems to think 180 minutes a week is a bit much for some of our lads.

You play your most effective team - when you are winning, you don't feel the fatigue, the strains, the soreness etc.

Millwall to win by at least two clear goals as, sadly, I think tombola Tone will strike again.

Mowbray back to telling us what a difficult job he has.

The LONG trip to London. What a dilemma. FFS buffoon.

Meanwhile, at Wycombe, Ainsworth achieved promotion. First time ever to the Championship. Lots of folks thought it could never be done. Kudos to him. 

Going back to Millwall/Rovers, for some reason, I expect an avalanche of goals. Last team with the ball wins. Rovers, 4; Lions, 3.

I’m going for a low scoring draw with a lot of long balls, blood and thunder with little quality on show. Hope I’m wrong COYB

The thing is all teams are picking up additional injuries. The increased demand on the back of the big break IS statistically a problem for all and rotating at times can 

Also, tactically Rothwell scored so should push for a start. Holtby also is pushing for one. Graham and Samuel were ineffective at the weekend. Davenport and Gallagher might fancy a start after Saturday too. Its not just being soft.

Yeah, 99, I think you are right. Gallagher knows he needs a big game, and he should give his best efforts. He’s got talent, he just needs to show it. 
 

Davenport is getting lots of love; maybe he feels he has a lot to prove. We will see.

Three games from the end of the season and Millwall are a point ahead of us.

Which of their squad would we take ahead of our squad on ability?

We'd take their boss for his ability consistently to get more from the players he has available than our's does.

Woods and Cooper for sure, but yeah they don’t have any Perriera’s. Pound for pound we have better players.

Leading tennis players are standing around for 18 of those 20 hours.

Man to man there is only probably one or two you would take and put in our side.

Milwall just seem to play uncomplicated football as a team though, with a clear plan of what they want to do.

We always look a bit disjointed, mainly because we play lads who are uncomfortable in there roles, and we never let a settled 11 have a go at it for a good run of games, even read an article yesterday on lancs live and Mowbray is quoted as saying "I've never been one to keep the same team". We certainly know that Tony.

"The long journey down to London?"

What on earth is he on about?

We don't travel down on the day of the game do we?

He tries to keep a team with Bennett in it

I've no idea to be honest.

That was the main reason Milwall vs Middlesbrough was a 3pm kick off last Wednesday so Boro could get back at a decent hour.

Maybe we're travelling down on the day and just staying the one night after the game?
