Millwall are one of the clubs we are hoping will be below us at the end of the season so hopefully we will come away from the game with at least a point.

I'm going for 10-0 to the Wanderers.

What do you think the score will be?

Will Darby be the first name on the team sheet?

Will Pratley return?

What do you reckon?

Millwall lost to Forest last Friday despite dominating the game and missing loads of chances to win it and having a goal disallowed for an alleged foul on the keeper which was dubious. It took a freak/wonder goal to win it for Forest. 
Millwall have a strong midfield including the likes of Morison which is worrying, and they strolled past Stevenage in the cup on Tuesday so they might be more rested.
Not holding out a lot of hope for this one given the injuries to key players but you never know. A draw would be a very good result IMO.

Problem is we have away matches at Brum and Derby next week so we could really do with getting some points on the board before we go there.

I believe if Freud was to analyse your score predictions, he would note that they are a manifestation of your own inner desires.

A little concerned that they signed Tom Elliot on a free from Wimbledon. He caused our defence a lot of problems at the back post both at home and away last season. See he scored 2 the other night.

Darby dropped, not made the bench, no Wheater either.

Wheater still injured, not sure why Morais isn't starting. This is a team we can beat, we need our best team out.

You ponce, he came on as sub in midweek.

This is a must win game, lose and we are down.

Good away draw IMO. Great free kick from Morais - straight into the top corner. 
A point on the board - only another 52 to go.... Very Happy

Like you say, a good point. Worrying that we hardly had a shot on goal though.

Exactly and it's been that way every game so far with the opposition creating a lot more than we do - even Crewe. It's the system as much as the players IMO, specifically instructing the wing backs to drop into a back 5 whenever they have the ball so the only outlet is Madine when we get it back. I always thought the point of having a back three was to allow the wide men to push further up the field and support an attack in numbers so either the ones he's signed aren't good enough to dominate their opposite numbers or they are defence-minded.
Can't remember the last time we dominated play and created the majority of chances.
Still we got a point on this occasion.

Just to be pedantic - Peterborough at home 3 games ago.

Our lack of creativity is down to the midfield in my opinion. Not a comfortable ball player anywhere to be seen. Still, having Morais back will make a difference.

I'd like to see Armstrong replace Le Fondre though - when chances are limited a guy with pace can sometimes create chances for himself.

With performances like today's we will be down by Christmas. There is no creativity at all. We don't mix it up, we just bang it up to Madine. This was a must win game 1 point isn't acceptable from a relegation rival. It's a good point if you consider how shite we were yes. But not a good point in the grand scheme of things!

Hardly hard fought. We got lucky. How many shots did we have on target until Morais came on? I'll tell you 0! Out of all the 5 goals we've scored in all competitions how many have come from open play? Just 1! It's clear the tactics aren't working. We are going to struggle this year if Parky doesn't sort it out asap.

True LT. he's still going for his kick and run tactics, and in this league we'll come up short very soon. When you add the slow starts to the games, we'll get our arses whipped on a regular basis.

I'm not going to give advice or criticism to a manager who performed miracles to get us promotion against all the odds last season and who has done an exceptional job in clearing out expensive deadwood and replacing them with promising talent despite the transfer embargo.

 Let's see see how they perform when all are fit and blended in to the team ethic, as set by Parkinson. The tactics have to fit the abilities of the players at our disposal. Early days for this squad!

3 games in and the tactics still don't work. It works when you out wingers on, but when the wing backs aren't getting forward there becomes a problem. How are we supposed to win games when we don't provide any attacking threat? We struggled to beat Crewe for Christ sake, that should have been our wake up call that the current tactics aren't working. These weren't the tactics that got us promoted, so why change it now?

These are exactly the tactics that got us promoted. Hoofball supported by a strong defence.

His mistake yesterday was leaving Morais on the bench, he is our only creative player. I can't see the mistake being repeated on Tuesday at Birmingham.

Personally I don't see these tactics keeping us up this season but, like most managers, Parky will play it his way regardless of results.

Miracles? Parky had more former Premiership and Championship players at his disposal than any other team in League 1 - whether he liked it or not as they were still under contract. 

Getting promoted from League 1 with the likes of Spearing, Wheater, Pratley and Le Fondre in your team is hardly a "miracle" IMO although it could be argued that it could have gone wrong - and equally argued that we should have won the title.

This season is a different story though and the objective is survival but if playing defensively at the expense of creating chances is Parky's solution I think it's totally fair to question his abilities as he faces his first real test as BWFC manager.

It's just a fact that we aren't dominating play or creating enough chances and that's a legitimate concern IMO.

You and I both know yours are "facts" of the Trump variety.

Be honest:- given what he inherited and what had happened the previous season, did you seriously think that we'd be promoted, especially when we had to offload one or two,  and some spent long periods injured? Of the ones you mention, Pratley played only 12 times, Alf only 19....but rarely for 90 mins and was another club's elderly reject as a failure.

No, Parky exceeded every fan's expectations. 

Give the new recruits time to settle and for Parky to assess how best to employ them before you start complaining about tactics that were successful last year despite the cash restrictions.......There's your miracle!  Good god, we've only played two league games, have won an away point, and you are already on his back!
