My partners first City game live. She had to sit through a few shockers on Robins TV last season, so hope it's entertaining otherwise she will be dreading Bournemouth at home in a few weeks!!!

Christ way to throw your partner in at the deep end! 😆

Looking forward to it if my tickets show up!

Wrap up warm, drops down to 7 degrees later in the evening.

"hello dear. Fancy going to your first football soon..?" 

"yeah OK. Bit nervous and not sure if I'll like it. Which game have you got in mind..?" 

"fair enough. I've got us tickets for Millwall away!" 

Fair play mate. She must love you..!

I'm expecting (hoping) to see Fleming sporting the Britney Spears/Sam Allardyce (take your pick) headphone & microphone contraption this evening relaying orders from a spluttering Nige who is wrapped up with a warm blanket and a Lemsip/whisky (take your pick) while his wife asks him to calm down and to stop swearing at the telly and does he know that his phone has been in a call for 75 minutes?

2 teams struggling to get wins suggests another draw tonight.  0-0 or maybe 1-1 I suspect.

They have pace down the wings, so we need to ensure we pick fullbacks with a bit of acceleration.

Afobe did well for us before he was injured and will be one to keep an eye on as he is pretty quick (or he was).

Matt Smith has given us a hard time over the years and Jed Wallace (who makes them tick) is now fit again.

I do remember George Saville (Jim's lad?) playing well against us in the past too.

Will HNM be fit and will he step back in or did Williams play well enough on Saturday to earn a start? Is Antoine fit now?

Not going to be an easy night for the lads and since the boss has caught COVID again, I'm hope he's not passed it on to any of them (not that we can usually pass anything anyway).

Heart says we can snatch 3 points tonight, head says boring 0-0.

Any idea if the tickets are "e-tickets"?

I could onlyt confirm I could go now that I've managed to get fuel (else I cant work the rest of the week!)

If I buy a ticket its obviously not going to get to me and I dont fancy trying to locate a ticket office at Millwall (not even sure you can because you are tunnelled into the ground?)

Any thoughts from anyone?

Genuinely have 1 adult ticket going spare now. 

(Not my partner to add, she's still coming, it's her cousin who can't make it (who is a City fan)).

Still spare? I could meet you at london bridge or anywhere else. WOuld pay the full amount just saves my hassle of whether it's e ticket or not etc

Not sure how we’ll set up. Could be to match Millwall? I’d quite like to see a 3-5-2

                             DB

             TK            RA         NB 

GT               MJ           JW               JD

                             KP

                    NW          AW

 

However I guess we are unbeaten in 5 for a reason and maybe won’t change too much. Think it’s got a 1-1 draw all over it

Draw specialists in the division, and we've been prone to a few ourselves this season, it feels like the game is screaming a gritty 1-1. So expect a 5-3 either way. Hope we give Palmer a shot form the start, let him ride that wave from Saturday and get some form. COYR.

Millwall 2 BCFC 3.

Goal scorers -

Afobe 2 for Millwall. 

For us Casey 1, Wiemann 2. 

For those that travel so far away I wish you all the best as those travelling away to the Den in the middle of the week you all deserve a medal.

Initially, I thought you might have come up with the right players and formation.

RU sure ?

Don't mind paying a tenner to watch the stream after really enjoying the game last Saturday. If I'm honest I'm not expecting to enjoy this one quite so much but it's going to be interesting to see if they can put in a strong performance again, after so many players collapsing to the floor on full time it could be a challenge and hopefully not having Pearson there won't have an effect. Would be impressed if they get a result at the Den tonight since they have done quite poorly against Millwall in recent seasons.

Was debating this with @GrahamCyesterday.

My gut feel is that Nige will pick the team, and then handover completely to Fleming. Nige doesn’t strike me as someone who’ll interfere tonight once the game is underway.
