Millwall v DERBY

Another game tomorrow, away at Millwall. I'll do my player ratings if I make it back in one piece Can't wait for it though, and can't wait to say I've been too Millwall, when nearly everyone else wouldn't go.

Millwall are in the bottom 3, but won yesterday, after playing well agianst Reading, we should be looking to win this, but I doubt it would surprise anyone if we didn't. It would be typical Derby.

Yes I just looked at the table and we are in some trouble although at the end I don't think we will get relegated. This will be a tough match, we always struggle against these type of teams especially away from PP, but I predict a 1-1 draw.

I think honestly, that they will beat us, we never seem to beat the worst teams in the league. I remember we lost to Mk Dons on the last day a couple of seasons ago, where they hadn't won at home for nearly half a year

No Danny Graham who has returned to Boro and Davies is suspended. Peschy and Michael Johnson will probably be the replacements

Peschi surely can't play as the loan striker????

A change to 4-4-2 perhaps, Peschi and Smith up front, Bisgaard back in on the right.

Also we don't seem to have done well against Millwall recently, lost 3-1 and 3-0 last season, we did beat them at home to ensure we stayed up the season before though, a repeat of the infamous play off semi final will do me.....without the pitch invasions though

I would have to admit now starting to Panic just a little bit, as Brown yet again admits that he wanted to defend a 1 goal lead, I don't think he gets the point, that we arent good enough to do that!!!!!!!!!!!1, we are no Chelsea

and finally four words

WE NEED A STRIKER!!!!

It´s getting very serious again. 3 points away from the relegation zone. But you definitely should beat Crewe in two weeks.

AARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

FOR FU'CK SAKE!

I don't like doing, but I might have to start turning against the manager, because if he's saying we're trying to defend a 1-0 lead, the guys an idiot, it's blatantly obvious we can't do that, and it's so frustrating, we play for 60 odd minutes, good football creating chances, we score a goal and then it all stops, and I just don't understand it.


Despite Millwall's reputation, I had a great day out yesterday, even got a bit of sightseeing in, trust Derby to ruin the day

Player Ratings

Lee Camp - 6 - Looked untroubled, then had too pick the ball out of the net twice.

Marc Edworthy - 6 - Didn't have a bad game, didn't have a good one either though.

Richard Jackson - 7 - More than one last ditch tackle which prevented the scoreline becoming embarassing.

Lewin Nyatanga - 5 - Made the mistake which lost us the game, he's still learning though.

Michael Johnson - 6 - Battled well, we missed Davies presence though.

Tommy Smith - 6 - Got in some good positions, the final ball wasn't good enough though.

Adam Bolder - 6 - Got stuck in as always, did nothing of significance though.

Inigo Idiakez - 6 - Why does he play so deep??? Made some good surging runs near the end when we we're chasing the game, he should be doing that from the start.

Seth Johnson - 7 - He'll always give you everything, great header for the goal, gets him man of the match. 3 goals in 2 games, and all you get is a point, I feel sorry for him.

Lee Holmes - 6 - Think it was his cross for the goal, which just scrapes him a 6, because if he ran at people when he had the ball, and got into space near the byline more often, we could have had a couple more, he looked scared to run at people at times.

Danny Graham - 6 - Runs all afternoon, holds the ball up and does what he can, but doesn't have enough support.

Subs

Paul Peschisolido - 5 - Didn't really do anything.

Giles Barnes - 6 - Wanted the ball, and looked willing to have a go, give him a go in the cup on Saturday from the start, and lets see what he can do.

Not been a good xmas period for us, just the 2 points, which just about ends any hopes of getting anywhere near the play offs, let's hope we get some good players in, while the transfer windows open.
