    'Arry's his usual self, still leaning out of his range rover window on transfer deadline day! He bought or loaned 12 new players in one window, and on Saturday, they unsurprisingly looked and played like 11 strangers, losing to a poor Norwich. We actually signed some very good players but it takes time and I'm not convinced he even knows what formation he wants to use, or what his overall strategy is, which is surprising for such an experienced manager. He seemed to have gone to our faceless Chinese board (no-one even knows who actually owns us, it could even still be the last bloke, who is in prison for money laundering!) and said give me a huge pile of cash and then just blown it on whoever looked a 'triffic' player!

    Ah well, despite my whingeing on here, we always have a good laugh at blues, you have to really. Leeds have had a rough time lately, now its their time by the looks of it. We won the league cup in 2011 and had a run in europe and the prem for a while. C'est la vie.

    I only listened to the game on the radio, but even though we lost to a decent Leeds team, it sounds like we are starting to slowly get it together. I reckon we will turn it round soon and once it does click, we have some serious quality, we just need more confidence. Just our luck though, our new record signing Jota went off with what looked like a hamstring injury. In other news, great to see Veela cha cha cha struggling!

    I though brum were a bit of a handful - clearly a lot of quality - just its not all come together yet.
    As for leeds - top of the league, top scorers and 6 clean sheets on the bounce - like most leeds fans - im pinching myself.

    Into the top six and looking better, if not firing on all cylinders yet.

    Couple of massive games coming next, away at Cardiff on Saturday and then The Derby the following Sunday.

    Im looking forward to tomorrows game at the Den. Leeds are always vocal and get behind the team so it should be a great atmosphere from both sets of fans. We have a decent home record against Leeds but i think on current form i would happily take a point now.

    That's being greedy. Four will do me :D
    I see you have Norwich tomorrow at home. They were crap at our place and have conceded 4 goals in the last two aways. You could end up top of the pile if results go your way tomorrow, good luck.

    Now that _is_ getting greedy... TBH, I'd rather not go into the derby top - asking for trouble.

    I dunno, It would do wonders for morale and it's something to defend. Then again beating wednesday to go top would be sweeter for the fans though!

    As ever, looking ahead to the derby I'd take a draw. Really hate that fixture.

    Old bill overkill and a bad tempered poor quality game is my experience of derby matches. It brings out all the big game loons as well.

    Yes. And these days a spot of price gouging too.

    What a result for Millwall!!!!!
    Watched the game courtesy of a live youtube channel (LUTV) - Millwall played some great attacking football while Leeds didn't even get a sniff of the game. Could easily have been 4-0.

    'Arry's gone! These club owners are absolutely mental - give him the funds to buy 12 players, and remember we don't have much money and then sack him after 6 odd games. Honestly, there's always some crap going on at blues, you have to laugh. Mind, I bet the bloke that got the tattoo of 'Arry leaning out of his range rover regrets it now lol. :D

    Didn't see that coming. Mind you 6 losses on the bounce isn't too clever

    Four nil would have been a fair result. One goal chalked off by the Lino but fuck knows why and we battered them from start to finish with them failing to get a single shot on target. We played some great stuff and had silenced the Leeds contingent long before we scored. Im not sure whether it's because we played so well or Leeds just had an off day but they don't look nothing special. Both there wingers were subbed at half time after a torrid time from O'brien and wallace. A good week all in all picking up 4 points from two tough games.

    Harry won't be losing any sleep as he gets another contract payed in full. I hope he never gets another job in the game, the horrible sly cunt.

    Credit where it's due. You could see Leeds are a decent side (when they had the ball) but Millwall simply played them off the park - with very attractive football. Freakish
