    Had to do a double check that this was set for manana instead of Saturday. Might not be the last time we see these guys this season. Going to take a much better performance then the last couple times out to get a result.

    Playing an in form team, at their ground, who are trying to ensure they make the playoffs is not going to make for an easy result.

    Millwall hasn't lost at home since November 4, against Burton Albion believe it or not. They haven't given up a goal at home since March 3rd, in a 1-1 draw against Sunderland. Seriously?! Burton Albion and Sunderland? And their other home losses were against Barnsley and Ipswich. WTF? Fulham may not be bad enough to succeed against Millwall at home. Millwall has had every home match against a top 8 team end in a draw, except for Middlesbrough who lost 2-1. A cautiously played draw doesn't help us much, so time to just go out, play for fun, drive the Millwall fans into a rage, a strut out with win.

    Millwall are currently enjoying the second longest unbeaten run of the season at 17. I simply hope that this London derby ends better than the last two (well at worst I hope that it ends the same as the last two). I would not be happy to have the 21 match unbeaten streak end at the hands of Millwall.

    Looks like Ayite and Kebano are doubtful, so we'll probably see Piazon again (perhaps Ojo?)

    Ojo is supposed to be injured and will miss.

    This is one I'd never want to see in person. I visited old Cold Blow Lane. It was like when you wander into the wrong bar and feel like you need to get the hell away NOW because it was all going to break out any second. The problem was, of course, that you can sideways out of said bar. I was expecting a gang beatdown for two hours.

    Millwall supporters love that reputation and that menace. No predictions today; THA SHIRT will be deployed. COYW

    Haven’t figured out how Kalas has lost out to Odoi at CB, now that Kalas is apparently 100% physically. Oh well, can’t argue with the results. Banana on STAND-BY! COYW!

    I believe that the second half today was the best football I've ever seen Fulham play. Sess was brilliant, Mitro's goal was the ultimate "in your face" moment, and -- for me -- the MOtM is Tim Ream. He was regal.

    Full disclosure, when Mitro scored, I went back to full GI mode and screamed some seriously hyphenated statements. Damn, it's great seeing us play like that.

    I’m not sure what’s been more impressive during this amazing run, the offensive onslaught unlocked by the arrival of the big Serb or the number of clean sheets. Due to too much crap to do, I was only able to watch the last 20 minutes, but Mitrovic’s goal was superb. What about that Maradona-esque stroll through the middle of the Lion half of the pitch by Kalas that preceded it? And I strongly agree with my right honourable friend from the Republic of South Texas. #13 would most certainly be on the plane to Russia this summer if we were going. Also nice to see Sess get off the schneid after a brief dry spell, especially after collecting all that hardware mid-week. Honestly, it’s tough to single guys out right now. Everybody’s firing on all cylinders. And it’s easy on the eyes to boot. Happy Days Are Here Again! I’m just trying to savor it, drink it in, pause and smile. Enjoy everybody! It’s just a game but, right now, it’s FUN!

    Speaking of Sess, I told HatterMom that he had collared a couple of PFA nominations in addition to the football league awards. She says, "PFA? That stand for pretty fucking awesome?"

    That's my girl.

    Short highlights from Millwall:


    The two halves of that game felt totally different. The first half felt like a continuation of what we saw against Brentford and was incredibly disappointing. We hardly had any cutting edge when we possessed the ball and we were lucky to not be down by two at the end of the half.

    Then the second half was magical. At that point it became one of the most entertaining matches I've watched. Suddenly we were just rolling over their defense that had played so well in past matches, and even in the first half!

    I have to give Millwall fans credit for making their home ground so difficult to win on, but it feels ridiculously good now to have handed them their worst loss of the season - and to know it is driving them absolutely bonkers. Millwall is wise to disable comments on their YouTube videos. I'm sure it wouldn't be pretty.

    We should be able to close out the season with 6 more points. If we can do that we need Cardiff to drop four points in their next four matches since we should be able to keep our goal differential over them. Just two draws would do it. Ugh, so close.
