Another new ground on saturday- Edinburgh City. Quick march (well it began quick) up Arthur's seat for a great view of the city then time for a few pints in The Bow Bar before the game. The ground is the old athletics stadium meaning a running track and 1 very big stand...

Isn't that the old Meadowbank Thistle ground?

Yes indeed - and Meadowbank Thistle are now Livingston F.C.

All a bit Wimbledon/Milton Keynes really.

Quite possibly the stench of tonight's game at The Den.

I left at half time. It was terrible  :(

Would rather that they concentrate on the league to be honest. We put out a greatly changed side from the one we fielded at the weekend and it really showed: no focus, no target man and no shape.

I rarely leave before the final whistle so for me to do so even before the whistle to start the second half tells you that there was something terribly wrong that even a touchline pundit like me could see less than half way through the match. 0-0 against a bottom four team in the 3rd tier 72 hours after beating the reigning champions of England, with 10 men! Bad form.

Yes, before they turned into Livingston.

Sorry Gareth, but due to a long-standing, yet totally irrational, dislike of Southampton, I find myself having to say:


C'mon United!

for this afternoon's League Cup Final.

Sorry!

I'd usually be moaning about 'Lucky Utd', but they were playing Southampton!

Yet another game without conceding a goal for Millwall tonight. 10 on the trot now against, admittedly, poor opposition,  but...10 clean sheets is exactly that! Also, we're unbeaten in the last 17 matches, including wins against 15% of the Premier League, including the reigning champions.

Mustn't grumble...

I was quite ebullient (ooh, get me?!  :D ) when we scored, then worried for the next 35 minutes.

Smiling's not really my thing, Fred.

I blames it on the Scottish blood in me  ;)
