Biggest game of the season against a team sitting 2 points below us.

Does anyone, absolutely anyone, think we have the bottle to win this one?

Of course we don't. The team have absolutely no fight whatsoever and in the intimidating atmosphere of the New Den I expect a heavy defeat, at least 3-0.

Dougie will respond to the pressure by replacing Baps with White, Popov straight in at LB, Ream central midfield and a Juke/Becks partnership up front. 
We'll win 2 nil.
And then I woke up...

I have high hopes for this two striker partnership up front but we'll have to wait and see. Until then the Juke/Becks jury is out.

I can't see it being much different to coyles last game to be honest at Millwall, though I didn't realise they were below us.

We're in the shit as it is but if they beat us on Saturday it's going to seriously test the players bottle until the end of the season.

Couldn't agree more with Wanderlust.Baptiste is a liability,replace him with White (I wish) Popov LB,Wheater,Mills CB's Ream Mark Davies,CYL central mid,Spearing holding slightly behind the 3 and Juke n Beckford up top.Its now or Never.Lose to Millwall send DF the same place as Coyle after losing there last season.
Six pointer relegation dogfight.Win or minimum Draw,Lose Taxi to the Job centre for DF. ::seething2::

I'd point out that what I wrote was wishful thinking but I doubt very much that Dougie will take that approach, especially away from home.

I know that I was just agreeing with your observations.DF can take us down and losing to Millwall will be one step nearer to that actually happening.I have a feeling Barnsley will string some wins together, he needs to go and put JP in his place because a defeat on Saturday will be the first nail being smashed in to our relegation coffin.
The only bonus I could see from last night was Wheater and Mills centre back partnership coming together well.Defence looked solid apart from Baptiste losing sight of Vokes moving in to stab the goal in from 2 feet.

Surely this has to be his last chance. I can't believe he hasn't been sacked already..

I quite like freedman but he's taken charge of us at the wrong time, we are too big a job for someone so inexperienced.

Think we will scrape this 0-1

I hope so because  a half decent start Wheater,Mills at centr back,Hayden White right back another left back Popov or Tierney then spearing holding Mark Davies and Ream Danns if we sell CYL( which is on the cards as he is out of contract 2015,in midfield,Juke,Beckford,Sordell,Connor Wilkinson,Tom Youngs all forwards who are ready for next step Wilkinson n Youngs that is.

Another defeat 1 - 3 .

DF blames the height of Millwall (Crescent Road) for another Bolton defeat. He assures us the lads practiced all week against a similar wall and even used the kerb for set pieces.
 In his post match press conference he rues the loss of Popov after he was knocked down by a taxi the previous day after he failed to watch the Kevin Keegan green cross code training video, we tried to get behind Millwall but the overlapping midfielder couldn't unlock the  millwall's left side Gates which he thinks is just not cricket.


PG is unconcerned as his plan to re float the Titanic is on track while treatment for the Leroy Lita voices in his head fail resulting in another week at the clinic.

God forgive me for saying this but! Would it be such a disaster to lose this one? Would losing to Millwall not be the final nail in the coffin for Douglas? Dont get me wrong I want a win and a big win but I just can't see it happening. :pray:

Ref watch: Hooper in charge

Simon Hooper will officiate Wanderers’ Sky Bet Championship clash with Millwall this weekend.

A man who the Whites are already familiar with given that he took charge of the club’s recent FA Cup tie with Blackpool, Hooper has been involved in 24 games so far this term, brandishing 93 yellow and four red cards in the process.

Having overseen Mansfield’s 2-1 victory over Southend at the weekend, the Wiltshire based referee has been primarily used in the Championship and League Two during the current campaign.

Jake Hillier and Daniel Leach will run the line, while Darren Blunden is the fourth official.

Preview: Millwall

Setting The Scene

Wanderers head to the capital this weekend in search of their first victory of the calendar year when they face Millwall at The Den.

Heading into the clash off the back of two consecutive home games against AFC Bournemouth and Burnley, the Whites will be hoping to secure victory over a team who themselves reside just below Bolton in the league standings with 27 points from their 30 games so far.

A fixture which saw Wanderers record their first home victory of the campaign with a 3-1 win back in November, the Lions did run out winners in the corresponding clash in South London last season with Darius Henderson’s late strike ensuring that the Whites left empty handed.

Team News

Wanderers will be without the services of Liam Trotter with the midfielder ineligible to play against his parent club this weekend, while Jermaine Beckford looks set to miss out with a hamstring injury.

David Wheater could keep his place in the starting line-up following his first start for the club in almost five months against Burnley on Tuesday night, but long term absentees Stuart Holden, Joe Riley and Marc Tierney remain on the sidelines.

Opposition Camp

Having narrowly avoided relegation to League One last season, Millwall have unfortunately found themselves in a similar position this term, currently residing in 21st position and just three points clear of the drop zone.

Just two points separated the Lions from relegated Peterborough back in May of last year – form which led to the resignation of long standing manager Kenny Jackett from the Millwall hotseat.

The summer months saw notable changes made at The Den with Steve Lomas taking over the reins at the club, but his tenure lasted a matter of months as he was dismissed on Boxing Day following defeat to Watford.

Following the departure of the former Northern Ireland international, the Lions moved quickly to install Ian Holloway in his place just six weeks ago.

Since his arrival at The Den, the Lions have recorded three defeats, two draws and one victory – form which Holloway will be aiming to eradicate in the remaining months of the campaign as Millwall look to beat the drop once more.

One To Watch

With six goals to his name already this season, Martyn Woolford is currently the Lions top scorer in a season where Millwall have struggled for consistency.

Having started out his career with his local side Glasshoughton Welfare as a youngster, the winger proceeded to enjoy a spell with Frickley Athletic before joining York City in the summer of 2006.

His efforts for the Minstermen during his two years with the club impressed many, with Scunthorpe United securing his signature in 2008 where he went on to spend three seasons.

Following another relatively successful stint with the Glanford Park outfit, it wasn’t long before the Championship came calling in the form of Bristol City – a move which saw him make 59 appearances in two years at Ashton Gate.

Shortly after Woolford was on the move again however, with The Den his next stop and his debut ironically coming against Wanderers in January 2013 where a penalty apiece ensured a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Reebok Stadium.

Without Beckford I'm struggling to see how we will score the goals we need unless there's a dramatic transformation and/or we get lucky. This game will probably be another nail in Dougie's coffin - if we don't get something from it the Board will get even twitchier.

It's almost unbelievable that he would still be here but surely there must be a point at which management finally accept what's happening and that it isn't going to turn around under Freedman. Sadly given the finances I fear it will only happen when it's too late to do anything about it.

Who cares what team he picks?

The team will basically be picked on one thing only - whoever didn't play last game, if the option is there obviously, will start this one.

They will be given instructions to 'contain' millwall, this will ultimately lead to us losing 1 or 2 nil IMO.

The people saying Freedman won't get sacked whatever happens are idiots.

A beating at Millwall should do it, but certainly a home defeat the game after that and he'll be on his way.

I'm willing to bet £1000 that Dougie isn't manager come May - anyone want to take me on?

haha, I agree, a home defeat against Watford would do it, though if not, certainly a derby defeat against Blackburn and if not, for sure the Leeds game, but certainly the one after that against Derby.
