I didn't bother going to Millwall v Wolves because defeat was inevitable
1:27pm Wednesday 6th March 2013 in Millwall
MILLWALL blogger MATT LITTLE voted with his feet and stayed away from last night’s Wolves defeat, one he rightly predicted as being pretty much inevitable with the Lions’ poor home form in night games.
I DIDN’T bother going last night - and it was nothing to do with watching that complete sham of the ‘match of the century’ either.
No, it was because under Kenny Jackett, home games, especially night time ones, have become a death march.
They fill me with dread.
If I wanted to sit in what passes as a football ground nowadays - sterile, plastic and without character - watching the home side tamely roll over to whoever shows up in front of bored south Londoners, I'd get one of the thousands of free tickets Charlton dish out every game and waste my time, and at least not my money, there instead.
I've not even bothered getting a ticket for the FA Cup quarter-final game on Sunday against Blackburn Rovers.
This Millwall team have even strangled the joy and excitement out of looking forward to a big cup match, they truly are that uninspiring and crap.
The idea of watching a few hundred northerners jumping around in delight as we once again put in an insipid footballing display devoid of creativity or heart is too much to bear.
The Millwall militants will say ‘good, we don't want you anyway’.
But considering I once was one of those militants, a Den regular for more than 25 years, then the club should be quite worried.
Fill the Den?
They're doing a better job of emptying it than Theo’s enforced membership scheme ever did.
I reckon we'll be down to 7,000 on a Saturday at this rate - unless there’s a big relegation six-pointer on the horizon.
