Most Millwall I've ever seen at our place for a league game, can't remember what they brought in the play offs, something similar I'd imagine.
They completely bossed the first half. We were all over the place. They should have scored after 10 seconds, Wiedwald pushing a shot out instead of the more straightforward catch. Having said that Lassoga should have done so much better with an early header, either side of the keeper for 1-0.
Every ball into the box they won, like we had lead on our boots. Little in the way of challenges in the air. We were crying out for a proper holding midfielder, a Batty, a Dacourt. Crazy situation with their first. Goal disallowed sixty seconds earlier and without taking a breath it's in the net again. At 2-0 down I was screaming for them to go mental, foul someone, get a booking, anything. Cooper does all this and more. Not quite what I was after. Harsh sending off and why did it take two minutes but he's simply not good enough. He'd already given it away twice.
I'd thrown the towel in at half time but fair play, great start and great goal from Lassoga. A scrambled goal from Roofe and we're back in it. Hernandez was having a stormer second half and Berardi was clattering anything that moved. Magnificent goal for 3-2 from Lassoga, me and the lad screaming Yeeeessss at each other. We did the right thing and kept attacking. Millwall were wobbling all over. When the inevitable happened for 3-3, I'd have settled for that, fair result, but the fucking flukey cunts. What a bastard. Felt like I'd been punched in the stomach. Thirty seconds later we nearly equalised for four all. That would have been bonkers.
Conclusions. Cooper's made himself look a tit and with Phillips’ booking we now have four suspensions. Not exactly ideal to launch a play off surge. Viera never looked fit to start. Jansson should concentrate on being a good player instead of the dramatics. Keeper's shit. Lassoga shows that with service he'll score. Difficult Feb/March coming up. I think we'll struggle now to be honest. Really fucked off about today though.
Good call about Viera and Jansson who I thought quite fancied getting himself sent off for the second game running.
Are they running a sending off competition ? They'll not beat Coops.
What a fucking cluster fuck we are.
First game back for me.
We all knew deep down it was going to happen, right?
