Thread: Made it to top half of Division..........

  1. #1

    Made it to top half of Division..........

    thanks to Bomber Harris and his boys, I think another 5 points should see us safe from any relegation threat. Back in September we were down close to the bottom when we beat table toppers Leeds at the Den and now we are actually above them in the table even if it is only temporary.

    I feared the worst when we got beat at home by Barnsley all those months ago, but now even with their new Chinese Billionaire owners they are struggling but I wish them well.

    Hello Claw....never mind about top half but I think that it’s more than a possibility that we could sneak into a top 6 position come the end of the season. Given our current form and especially the next three games I really think that we could be the surprise package.
    I know we have got to have a “Champion’s” run to achieve the play offs but with the momentum we have... why not?

    I am not getting carried away yet Frenchie, there are some very good teams above us, but I am enjoying this season we have had some great wins especially doing the double over Leeds and Brum.

    Really impressed with your lads seem to have a great team spirit and never say die attitude it goes a long way unlike our lot who are spineless.

    Evening Red....really incredible how your lot are proping up the table. Other than next Saturday I wish you all the best for the rest of the season. It’s still very tight at the bottom with nobody (in my opinion) safe from QPR downwards. Do you think you will survive?

    No we will go down, we concede to many goals ....we have 3 goalkeepers none of them any good can see us finishing bottom.

    was it you who was at Roker when we drew 3-3in the 70's ?

    Yes mate I was there and I am not likely to ever forget it! My mate and I managed to get “trapped” in the wrong end of the ground.
    It must have been the only time that I never celebrated a Millwall goal! At the end we joined up with about 30/40 Wall fans and we were given a police escort back to the station.. thanks Plod! Talk about happy days

    I remember that I was not far from the pitch on the left side of the goal...so I might be one of those phuckers!
    As for the match itself, other than coming back from 3/1 down,what really struck me was the aerial battle between Barry Kitchener,our centre half and Dave Watson...that was really a battle of the Giants.

    Loud and intimidating! I have no idea what it is like now in the new stadium but I imagine it must be dismal to say the least.

    When it first opened the SOL was fantastic of course we were doing well but these last few seasons have drained the heart out of the supporters, we just go expecting to get beat which is sad really. Also think the fans thes days are different to what we were when we were young all they want is premier league.

    Sadly did not get to that game,I was over in Belfast with the Marines.
    Red if you do go down it's not that bad, in the 2 years we were in League 1 we went to Wembly twice, the first was a playoff final against
    Barnsley which we lost and last years final against Bradford which we won.

    At least your fans are not letting you down by the mere fact you are bringing 1,500 down the Den.

    To be honest I'm not bothered about the Premiere League where you have the rich clubs and everyone else is playing for places, I would like a well run club and to be competitive...we have sold 1,900 up to now ...hoping the weather improves.

    Tahh Claw, and that helped us when you recently won away at both Birmingham & Burton. We've taken 4 points this week from two away games, and both of those were real 6 pointers so we're now out of the drop zone again!.

    Noticed that Acido, see you have a new goalscorer by name of McBurnie is he a loanee, looks like a good addition.

    Redhugh, we do have underground heating at the Den so the game should be on .

    Yes and we've got a new chant.... ooohhh Ollie McBurnie. Its not original but we do like it because we've found a new goalscorer at last. Hes only on loan from Swansea admittedly, but he could be the big difference in keeping us up.

    I still think that bit of experience at times like these can be ***** and we dont really have any of it in the squad, unless you count Adam Hammill & Matt Mills who are both nearer to 30 rather than 20!!.
