Really annoying that Forshaw can't start, although even if he wasn't 'carrying a knock' TC would not have played him ! Strange policy given he is an experienced player and imo doesnt need time to 'settle in'.

On the train to the game atm, think this will be a really tough game Millwall are strong defensively plus we are struggling to score goals.

Team I would go with

Wiedwald

Berardi
Jansson
Cooper
De Bock

Vieira
Klich

Alioski
Hernandez
Dallas

Roofe

Subs: Lonergan, Shaughnessy, Anita, Phillips, Sacko, Cibicki, Lasogga

Need some more control in the midfield I personally think Klich is our most composed midfielder and best passer from what I have seen of him. A balanced team is key everyone playing in their natural positions we’ve looked unbalanced for ages now.

It will probably be a midfield of Vieira and Phillips, we should be ok defensively with but I would much prefer a midfielder like Forshaw/Klich alongside Vieira who has the ability to control the game a little bit more at this moment in time. KP has played the box to box role really well this season but isn’t a great passer of the ball and has been a little bit out of form recently. He has progressed really well this season and I really like him as a player but I do think TC needs to give KP a rest (he’s looked a lot less energetic recently) and try something a little bit different in the midfield.
Also a keen Barcelona supporter since 2004-2005 (when they were average.)

I can't see many goals in what will be a tough game as you say Oscar

Could be a turgid/dour game going on the form of both teams

Just hoping us fans are entertained which would be a nice surprise !

they have lifted the restrictions on millwall fans and they have sold their allocation of 1400 could easily have sold double that have taken 2300 to villa and 1500 to Sunderland this season with an average home gate of 12000 that's not bad in fact as a percentage of home attendance's it's quite good and we haven't won an away game yet . enjoy your day but not the result .

First announcement a red herring from TC?

Carrying a knock is a TC euphemism for "I'm probably not going to play him" I'm beginning to distrust anything TC says about injuries.

I know I understand that we are so used to losing that we invent ways to enjoy the day ,or try anyway , despite the needle between us in recent years I don't dislike leeds and as a millwall fan for almost 50 years I still think the best club side I've ever seen was leeds under Don revie and id like to see leeds get into the premiership a club with good supporters without the plastic happy clappy plastic nonsense that the premiership has become

Very weak bench with 4 defenders, 2 ineffectual wingers and Dallas coming back from injury

You are right faaip, worrying bench which offers no hope if we need to make changes to be more offensive !!

Looks a good team on paper, lets hope we can go at least 85 minutes before making a sub

Again Shog over Klich points to a deep seated problem regarding TC and Klich..no doubt Klich has a little finger injury keeping him out this week

Alright with that team as long as Roofe is left Ali right.

Let the full backs provide the width.

Agree on the bench, not 1 game changer between them.
Edit . And shog over Klich ffs . Vieira probably wont finish the game so we have Phillips and Shog at some point.
