Irons tame Lions

Millwall 0 West Ham 0

Would like to say that I was standing my ground at the New Den, but, erm, I was visiting my mother-in-law in Buntingford instead.

Thankfully the game seems to have passed without too much trouble. Interesting that Sam preferred the experience of Faye over Reid for this one and that he is developing a liking for the novels of Gustave Faubert.

Looking at the Football League Show highlights at some unfeasible hour in the morning, Lansbury almost scored from the kick off as the Millwall keeper dozed, Green made a couple of decent saves, Lansbury hit the bar and Bentley could have won it at the end after the keeper parried Faubert’s shot. A bad miss, but not quite the open goal the press claimed.

We could have gone top if we'd won. Still, grateful to get anything at the most hostile venue we’ll play in all season and a good test of the player’s character. Unbeaten in six with two home games to come is definite progress.
