    Tough luck Millers.... from a Lions fan.

    nearly caught us there however can see you doing well in League 1 just like the Tykes are doing now. Every season is different for us we did not have the fire power, partly due to despite buying Barnsley's Tom Bradshaw for a million he has been injured the whole time. You still have a good team, I mean look at Bradford city, 2years ago we just beat them at Wembley in the play off final and now they are down in League 2. The Championship is tough however it's my favourite.

    Cheers Claw. I live in your part of the world and always have a chat with Millwall fans I see in pubs about our clubs’ ups and downs. We should both be thankful we’ve not got the sort of financial/ownership concerns that Bolton, Blackburn, QPR, Coventry etc have (and hope your stadium gets sorted out) and can get on with punching above our weight which we’ve both done pretty well at many times over the years. And ignore the idiot fans!

    Despite taking four points from your team we have indeed come up short and yes the Championship is tough.
    Didn't realise Bradshaw had long term injuries this season, it will be like signing a new player once he's fit for next season.
    Without going ott I'm optimistic for the challenge of League 1 next season.

    You gave us a chance to catch up, but we didn't take it. Can only blame ourselves really.

    Good luck to your real fans that battle against the negative publicity the media loves to give you, deserved or not.

    happy for millwall to be stopping up, obviously not at our expense. Proper club with proper fans. They still have the passion what the English game used to be about. Would have much rather Wigan, Reading or Blackburn to go. Two bit clubs with clap a minute fans.

    Great guys and much-admired by football fans across the country.

    On their match thread yesterday they were calling us "the groomers".

    Which thanks to the Asian perverts in Rotherham is now what the town is “famous” for.

    We didn't quite come up to scratch Claw. Too many points dropped from winning positions, too many goals conceded, too small a budget. But we put up a fight and always gave the big boys a game with the notable exception of WBA at home and Derby away. Best footballing teams I have seen this season are Brentford and Swansea and they are mid-table.

    Good luck for next season and it would be good to be playing you in the Championship again soon. Hopefully SY Police decide to let the game start on a Saturday if we do play you again.

    Wow! I've been watching football for 60 years and never realised that there were two clubs called Millwall. Obviously this one "a Proper club with proper fans" can't possibly be the same club I have heard discussed on MM over the last few seasons. I'm embarrassed by some Rotherham fans; tickle their tummies and they'll kiss anyone's rrse.

    Same embarrassed I feel by some of our gormless happy clappers then.

    Thanks lads for some very positive comments, I could understand if some are feeling a bit raw or even bitter about going back down but at least we will both start next season with a clean sheet, unlike Bolton who are deep in the brown stuff, they must wonder what the phuck will happen.
    I think our highlight was the beating of Everton's 1st team in the Cup.

    Yes but they're not in the team or the stands.

    Millwall which is in Tower Hamlets with a Muslim population of 120,000, are they saying none of them have being involved in anything like that?

    Birmingham fans last week doing the "*****s" chant, 220,000 Muslims there, nothing similar happening? Come on.

    The problem a lot of outsiders have is that the town did nothing about it either then or since it happened so it wasn't just the Asians fault. They spotted an opportunity and no one could be bothered to stop them. Many think it's still going on. Shocking really.
    People from outside have complained and campaigned against what happened more than the townsfolk.
    Can't complain when others remind us of it.

    Back to football, Millwall continued to accumulate points at the end and we didn't . They got some outstanding results vs wba and Derby and kept the points counter clicking with draws. We lost most of ours

    It most probably is, but it is in Birmingham and Tower Hamlets as well, in fact in many towns and cities.

    Are Rochdale and Oxford United fans going to be doing the chant next season?

    Fair point GF but I think the reason we get it the most is the scale of the abuse.....revised estimates of 1700 and counting.
    I still can't comprehend If it was 1700 individual children that were abused presumably many times

    Then there’s the iceberg principle, the number of Asian perverts they’ve caught is only the tip of the iceberg that is showing above the water.

    Plus the negligent people who let it continue.....police, head of social services who I think emigrated to NZ, leaders of the Council

    That only means either they didn't get caught or the police/ authorities there are better at covering it up.

    It wasn’t negligence it was a deliberate “sweep it under the carpet” exercise fuelled by political correctness and a desire not to upset a certain section of our supposedly multiethnic society
