One of the best wingers in the league. Every time I've seen him play his been one of the City's best players.

Waits for Mitts to tell me I'm wrong.

You ARE wrong. He's predictable, isn't as fast as people make out, it's always 50/50 whether or not he'll beat his man, and there's no end product most of the time. He's a taller, white Shaun Wright-Phillips without the immense start to his career.

I've no doubt he has the potential to be a good player, but he's obviously too impatient, thinks he's better than he actually is, and will not at all be missed by us.

One of our best players? Tch. You mad? He'd be lucky to get in the top 18 (first team + subs)

He has been citys best player in a few of the few times his played. Hell he came on as a sub the other year and got man of the match.

Would be happy to have him at Spurs.

He isn't the type of player you have in your starting line-up though, he's an impact player. He's overrated because by the time he comes on the pitch, everyone's knackered, and he looks a lot quicker than he actually is. Whilst I agree he's a good player in the sense that he adds an extra dimension to the way we can play, stick him in any other squad and he's just a regular player. He'll never reach the heights people set for him, and he's no Gareth Bale. He's just the only traditional winger we have at the club now.

Went to Peterborough yesterday and it's awesome to go to an old stadium that still has terraces. It's sad to see they have one stand that is rather modern. The rules are that if you are in the Championship for longer then 3 years you need to make your stadium all seating which sucks. Seeing one side of the stadium with people singing their heart out and having a laugh then the other with people just sitting not making a noise is depressing.

Had more than a few run-ins with them type when we moved to the stadium (mad to think it'll be ten years next season) But yeah, they piss me off to no end. The worst part is when stewards tell you to sit down. The fuck do they think it is? Tennis?

I remember the FA Cup final where they said over the speakers for everyone to sit down and the ground just burst into. "Stand Up if you love Millwall."

I see the games on ESPN classic from the 70's and 80's and just wish there was that passion in the supporters now.

In Germany, they've got stands, just made them safer.

And they've been keeping attendances high for seasons (since WC06), and still rising I believe.

Depends where you sit in the stadium though. At Lansdowne for our Ireland matches, anywhere in the stadium you will be told to sit down, but stand 114 is the supporters club singing section and you dont sit down. If you do you will be turfed out!!

Well the best atmosphere for a Millwall game is the away games. You get the true diehard fans there who follow the team everywhere. Usually if you go to the back of the stands everyone stands up and sings all game while the people at the front sit down.

Got back from Sheff Wens about an hour ago. We threw it away playing far to deep all through the second half even once they equalized.

How do these chants and mini-dances get around the stands? It's almost like one of those dance movies where you go somewhere and everyone seems to know the routine even though it seems to be spontaneous. The Spanish one posted earlier for example...
