Would an explanation help to bridge the gap ?

Going off the forum, unsurprisingly the most popular topic at the min is about last night's team selection especially when the winners would have probably got to play Spurs at home with a huge financial windfall awaiting the winners.

If Neil Harris came out and explained his thinking behind both games, where he fielded weakened teams, would that help in any way to bridge the gap which has obviously now appeared between the fans, the manager and the club.

It's the travelling fans last night that I feel sorry for more than anything, they braved the weather and long delays on the motorways to support the team. It's those people that need an explanation and a possible apology more than anyone.

No.

It is done now.

We all know where we stand. One man from Essex decided to throw a football match.

Either you can go along with that or you can't. I simply won't bother any more. What next - resting players in matches v promotion chasers before games against Burton and Sunderland? In fact, should Harris not be doing that on Friday with Birmingham City & Sheffield Wednesday up next? If he is going to follow his own logic to its conclusion.

I went last night and although disappointed with the team selection , did I really expect anything different as NH picked second string teams for the previous 2 Cup games ? ...... Wasted a day off work and about £100 but its my own fault , I should have known what to expect.

Last night's game was more important than any of the 2 previous games as a game against Spurs with home advantage was awaiting the winners and a big pay day, clubs at our level can't pass up an opertunity to earn such a large sum of money for winning one game of football.

Yes Norf, you're exactly right with your summing-up.

How about one club from Bermondsey deciding it wasn't worth the risk and cost to be at home to the Yids.

If that is true, Leon - even more reason on not bothering anymore.

Yes. An explanation and an apology to those who went, along with a free ticket to an away match of their choice.

Mate, lots on here saying how much money we would of made and its simply not true.
A sunday fixture against the Yids would of demanded a double police presence and at Sunday rates (double).

Think about it, this time last season we were in or around the playoffs with everything at stake.

Did NH play a weakened side to save players from injury or suspension in the FA Cup NO.

Did we have more league fixtures and a smaller squad YES.

Are the FA trying to pin penalties on us for Wembley last season YES.

Were the chances of it kicking off against the Yids highly likely YES.

Are we concerned about our image given the dispute with Lewisham council YES.

Would the FA like to deduct us points YES.

I honestly think there is more to this than meets the eye.

But that proves my point.

What's the point in supporting a football club that is scared of playing a big derby match??

Millwall either now place more importance on finishing midtable over a cup run or they are simply scared to host a big cup game. Either way, it makes supporting them pretty redundant now.

People are probably reading my posts thinking I'm upset. But, it is more numbness - numb about modern football and now Millwall.

Fine, if that's what it is about now, not romance or dreams, but squads and finishing positions, count me out!

Leon, that's why some sort of explanation would go a long way especially to those that made the long trip to Rochdale for an evening kick off.

It's highly likely a Millwall v Spurs game at the Den would be a tv game with all the big revenue that brings, you have more chance of turning over a premier league team if your at home, we turned over 2 premier league clubs last season at home so the tv companies would see a possible upset in the cards.

No explanation required.
If you don’t want to win a competition then don’t enter it. It’s been done before. However, this should apply to the now watered down equivalent of the league cup and any other ancillary cup comps.
League games and The FA cup demand first team selection.
I hate what’s happening to football.

I was chatting with Paul Ifill back in May and he was telling me that NH was the most competitive person he had ever come across in football. Had to win everything, so things just don't add up to me but what do I know.

I do know the club read through all the forums and given what is being said I expect NH to come out and take full responsibility. That will suffice with most and Cardiff will become the attention factor, but I think there is more to this and goes against everything NH stands for.

:stroke chin:


No we pay for all the OB and to be honest their isn't many in the grounds these days as that's left to clubs to provide stewards as first line.
