    There's probably better than that until reasonably late, I only know those two because every time I'm heading home from a random session midweek they're always open, and my late bus back to New Cross after the trains stop, picks up right outside St. Christophers Inn. Personally I hate London Bridge and usually travel Shoreditch via Surrey Quays most days. 

    I'm a 15 minute walk south of the ground and will almost certainly head that way after the game when they eventually unlock the away end gates, last season took about 20 minutes.

    As I said in this thread I’m not particularly fond of London Bridge either.

    Leave the game early you’ll be straight out to the station no bother. Did it last year, saved us a lot of time.

    A lot of places stay open to at least midnight during the week. St. Christophers Inn and if you're really desperate Belushi's both just down Borough High St from London Bridge are open until 2am every single night of the week. The first is okay, pretty standard boozer with live music and occasional violence, Belushi's like every town is horrific unless you are 18 or fancy being surrounded by paralytic backpackers and tourists. Otherwise you've got the rest of London, i.e. West End, Shoreditch a 24 hour bus away.

    Fair enough, cheers for that. You're London based aren't you? We have an AirBNB I think so may as well make the most of it and stay out afterwards.

    May well try them.

    The nearest Spoons to London Bridge..... is the one in London Bridge - The Pommelers Rest on Tower Bridge Road - 10 minute walk from London Bridge station. What I've done on the previous two occasions I've been to Millwall though is get off at Surrey Quays station and go to The Surrey Docks Spoons around the corner then take the 15-20 minute "stroll" to the ground.....

    Yeah you're right. It's only about a 10-15 minute walk and there are plenty of pubs on route. After Millwall last year we got off at London Bridge and crawled all the way back to there via various pubs, it's not bad at all.

    Are any of you staying over, if so is there anywhere around the area to head that stays open late?

    I’m a student in London and the Half Moon Wetherspoons on Mile End Road is a nice little spoons, 2.85 for a pint of thatchers, 35 mins to the Den ( get off at Surrey Quays station)If you wanna save a few bob go here.

    Not a huge Wetherspoons fan but for Fulham away last year we spent about 5 hours in The Pommelers Rest by Tower Bridge with lots of other City fans, was a mint day.

    London Bridge is 1 train from Millwall, so it's handy to be there up to 30-45mins before kick off.

    Putney is completely in the wrong direction. 

    It's on the way. We're getting into London for before 10am so we'll make our way across throughout the day.

    Lots of decent pubs in and around Borough Market, avoid the Banker and Barrow Boy like the plague, there's a couple of pretentious bars in and around the Shard which are best avoided. If you drink on the river pubs, you'll pay a premium, and frankly unless the sun is out they're not worth it.

    There is a decent cider place, Hawkes Cidery & Taproom which is worth a visit you're up there for the afternoon and have got a bit of time as it is about a 20 min walk from London Bridge,  The Rake in Borough Market itself is a good one as that tends to have some form of cider in, it is a bit small though so don't expect it to be the "away" pub. Word of warning, not much Thatchers to be had around here unless in a 'Spoons. Nearest one to London Bridge is the Crosse Keys in Gracechurch St which again is about 20 mins from London Bridge.

    Yeah Bunch of Grapes is alright but once it got a bit more full and singing started the police came over. Didn't stop a good old sing song but you could see the police didn't want it and as it got nearer to kick off it was pretty much enforced walk to station 

    I was just about to come in here and say the Bunch of Grapes has been recommended by a couple of people I've asked this morning about it. Going to give it a go, went to the Banker and Borrow Boy last year, complete load of shite.

    Only been once granted but seemed alright I thought that day. Surely it's where decent numbers congregate, bringing with it good atmosphere pre game etc.

    I've been a few times. I'm not keen on it personally, it's ridiculously expensive, the police try and kettle you into one pub and I just think given you're in London there are better places to drink. If you've any decent pubs to recommend around that area though I'd be more than happy to try it tomorrow.

  7. I’m not sure London Bridge is the best really. It depends when you’re getting there and how — we get into Paddington AM so will be making our way through London. I’ve found London Bridge is expensive (as are most places in London) and generally not great.

    Will be stopping off at Putney I imagine.

    You would never see this at Leeds, Newcastle or a lot of other clubs. But I'm sure they all had good excuses...

    Got to be having a laugh haven’t you? Leeds fans are the most abusive of their own players in the country. Patrick Bamford’s averaging a goal every 130 minutes for Leeds his season and at Preston the other week they were ironically cheering him scoring goals in the warmup. Not sure what you’re on about.

  9. It’s over to you mate.

    I’ve been the biggest critic of Johnson, but he’s proved me wrong this season.

    He’s proved he can take this squad beyond it’s capabilities, and I think had we signed a striker and not recalled Semenyo it’d be a different story but that’s a debate that’s been and gone and I’m done with it.

    Johnson has my full trust now, it’s up to you Steve, please back him. He’s gained your trust, let’s have Kalas and Da Silva, let’s have some quality and go for it next season in the positions we need.

    Such a sad end to the season but we’re in a great position as a club. Thank you, Steve, Mark, Lee. It’s been great fun, see you in August chaps.

    Have a great summer the lot of you. See you in Millwall for a final hurrah/piss up, it’ll be a big one.
