Millwall mix: Wembley woe, jubilant January business and below-par players

Well; that’s the Wembley dream over, then. For the next three months, anyway. Despite winning the second-leg by a single goal to nil, Oxford United pipped Millwall to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final on Tuesday night, as they won 2-1 on aggregate. The Yellows became the third League Two side to dump the south London outfit out of a cup this season, after Barnet and Wycombe’s victories in the Capital One Cup and FA...

Millwall’s consistent inconsistency

Will the real Millwall please stand up? I repeat, will the real Millwall please stand up? In the 1994 classic film, Forrest Gump once said: “life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get”. If Forrest was following the Lions up and down the country over the last few weeks, he’d no doubt change that famous phrase to include the word ‘Millwall’. Whether its in the...

Millwall’s year of two halves

It’s fair to say that 2015 has been a year of two halves for Millwall Football Club. As we all know, the year began in dire circumstances, with the Lions in relegation zone of the Championship – which they would not get out of for the rest of the campaign – and Ian Holloway in charge; a man with seemingly no clue on what he was doing. An embarrassing FA Cup defeat at Bradford (in which the prospect of a trip to Chelsea was on...

Cup fever is starting to engulf Millwall and their fans

The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy is a competition often ridiculed until the very latter stages come into play; sometimes, even then, is it disregarded. Whether it’s the Leyland DAF Cup, the Auto Windscreen Shield or the LDV Vans Trophy, the cup competition between the bottom two divisions of the Football League pyramid would probably not be missed if it was scrapped altogether. However, courtesy of that very competition, Millwall Football...

Fleetwood defeat just a “blip” for in-form Millwall

Despite the upturn in form at The Den, there’s one thing that Neil Harris’ Millwall side have yet to do – punish an opposition side. That was, however, until last Saturday. Goals from Lee Gregory and Byron Webster, either side of a Shane Ferguson double, meant that the Lions eased to a 4-1 victory over a poor Colchester United. They could have had more – they rarely broke out of second gear – but when you take into...
