It was good.... and bad. Certainly exciting. Much more exciting than that rubbish at Wembley. 5 goals. 2 red cards. Dodgy penalty. Off the post. Off the crossbar. Last minute goal.......
It's never dull at the Dripping Pan.

That's why the crowd is 25% down on last season.

The crowd is down because the team are losing. happens that way in football.

Well done Lewes FC - takes a decent side with backbone to fight back like that from a bad start to the season.
Looking forward to my first trip to the Pan this year and the company of real football supporters. Most of all it'll be nice to be somewhere in Lewes with no chance of seeing some old fat bloke in one of those awful Brighton cheap replica shirts
I pray it's the start of a long a successful run that culminates in entry to the Football League where they take the place of Brighton who fall to the Conference by which time all of their thousands of "fans" will have long vanished and gone back to supporting Arsenal from their chair in front of the tele

I recall Millwall`s slow start to last season. Lomas should never have appointed & was way out of his depth. In fairness, I cannot recall another Millwall manager in recent years who has been given the money that Holloway has to spend. Re-laying that training pitch must have cost a fortune. As far as Lewes is concerned, Wilson stopped their freefall down the leagues & they will finish in the bottom half this season. But a good Cup run would be a bonus.

With respect drone you don't know all that much re Millwall. Dead right about Lomas and thank your lucky stars you didn't get him at Lewes or you'd be on your way to Sussex County Div 3
In proportion Holloway has far less to work with than many prior Wall managers eg Big Nose, Spackman and the useless awful Lomas to name just a few.
The difference is Holloway is a proper manager with sound philosophy who will take Millwall to the top league eventually (that'll be a wake up call for all the happy clappy new age football "fans" that infest the Prem)
Us as supporters have always liked the cut of Holloway's jib which is well defined by his great family attitude.

With respect MF, I am now into my 55th season as a Millwall supporter. So it is total rubbish to say I don`t much about it. How long have you been going?. And I mean going - not following the scores on the videprinter. I was first sat up on the crash barrier at the CBL end of the old Den as a 5 yr old by my dad. !959 -60 season. My last visit was the farce against Rotherham a few weeks ago. So I don`t mind you having a pop at me. But it is time to put your own credentials on the table. I don`t recall Lomas spending that much. But of course he failed to spend wisely. KJ was a far better judge of players. But even he signed a few turkeys. Berylson seems to be the most up front & genuine director I can recall since Thorne. Unlike many of them in the past, such as the spiv Purser, I think he really wants to see the club reach the top. Incidentally, I`m sure you`ve noticed that the link between Lewes & Millwall football Clubs, is that they were both formed in 1885.

Hey Drone and MF interesting to have 2 Wall fans on this site interested in the Rooks - no-one luvs ya and you don't care. I'm looking forward to the first of my (approx) tri-annual visits to the Pan this month from Belfast to swell the gate.

A good mate of mine will never ever forgive Hollowhead for taking Leicester City into the third tier of English football for the first and only time in their history.
I'm told he widely acknowledged to be a clown, floundering well out of his depth at a Club with ambition and standards.
Personally, I think he will do a good job when expectations are lower, as per his success at Blackpool.

@drone OK I apologise or we'll be like two old farts fighting, My first game was 1957 and I'm a touch older than you. My Season Ticket is in West Upper Block 5 and have just changed from row Q to the one behind on account of a 23 ST for my grandson where we can sit next to each other.
Agree re Berylson and nice to hear someone speak well of Alan Thorne who I liked. The very mention of Purser makes me smile but I never put a brick through his showroom window honest I never.
Only game I've missed so far is the away at Sheffield Wednesday. You should have done the Blackpool game we were well worth the win - aside from the last quarter when we seems to panic after giving away a daft goal.
You missed the first sight of Jack Powell (Saints game doesn't really count) in a league game and the best debut I've seen from a young player of ours for years.
You're right Lomas didn't spend as such but the wages on the players he brought I think were very high. I'm grateful he was got rid of otherwise we'd be in league One now.
Do you live in Lewes? There's ore than a few Millwall fans here and all active ones. Been here 6 years myself and it was a surprise to find so many.
Never knew Lewes FC formed in 1885 - even I don't go back that far.
I hope we're friends now
