Just a little follow up to your news commens about Mings.

Personally I think much Mings was better on the left side against Derby than Parr. Don't know if you there or not, but for me it was clear we improved as a team when Chambers went off, Mings came on and Parr went to right back.

He might be a bit 'dodgy' sometimes, for want of a better word, but Mings really gives us a drive going forward that I didn't really see from Parr, albeit the away fans got a better view of Mings than Parr at Derby.

Parr made our back four more solid in the second half in my view. Dropping Chambers is a big call, but if he wasn't being played out of position then his place wouldn't be under threat imo.

Next game I'd play Parr right and Mings left. It looked to me that Parr had as much of a right foot as a left, I still don't know for sure what foot he is? Strange, I'm normally spot on with that game.

Possible team for Millwall
at 10:39 1 Sep 2014

Gerken
Parr Berra Smith Mings
Hyam Bishop
Anderson Bru Tabb
Murphy

Bart Chambers Bishop Henshall Skuse Bajner Marriot

After Saturday I fancy that more than a flat 4-4-2 with McGoldrick.

If we still had Wordsworth and Taylor that squad would look a lot better.

Did we ever offer Rosenior a contract after his loan? If not, why on earth not?

So full back positions are sorted for Millwall then
at 10:07 31 Aug 2014

Parr on the right Mings down the left. On yesterday's showing I think Mings made more of a statement.

Question is what will Mick do with his midfield? Skuse? No Skuse? I know what myself and many others want...

Surely Mick can see we look so much better without him in the side?

Had McGoldrick played today we'd have lost.
at 19:25 30 Aug 2014

Thats my view. We'd have played 4-4-2 with Hyam and one of Bru/Bishop and there would have been no link between midfield and attack and we'd have seen mostly long balls.

As it was I'd say most long balls second half came from Gerken. There was a lot of passing interchange between the likes of Mings, Bishop, Tabb and Henshall. It was nice to see.

Huge credit to Mick for his half time talk and his subs which were pretty much spot on. Bishop came off too early but I guess he was goosed.

One thing I can't believe is how Skuse has kept his place for so long with the likes of Bru and Bishop waiting in the wings?! Today we had a midfielder willing to run with the ball, and run forward, FORWARD! Bar Williams, who was the last midfielder that did that? It's incredible what happens when you take a gamble and play more forward thinking players isn't it Mick?

I just wonder if Skuse had played if he hadn't been ill. I fear I don't want to know the answer.

Even in the first half in which for the most part we were dominated in terms of quality and pressure, we looked better without Skuse. He has to stay out of the team for now.

The substitute of Mings, albeit forced, did us a huge favour. He was better than Parr imo. He drove forward and really put his foot in high up the pitch. Parr also looked better than Chambers at right back, is he right footed by tge way? I always thought he was a left back but he seemed to use his right foot more than his left.

Also liked the look of Henshall when he came on.

Standouts for me today were Tabb, who seemed the main man in midfield, he was very good. Bishop of course was a massive breathe of fresh air, Bru was very impressive at times (chipped ball for Hyam late on was lovely) and Berra was superb once again.

I'm sure I'll remember more about the game later.

I have a sneaky feeling Henshall will start, but not sure how/where, especially if we play 4-5-1.

Long ball
at 16:36 23 Aug 2014

Followed by long ball, followed by, when Sammon came on, yep you guessed it...long ball.

There was not one player in our squad, let alone team, who was ever likely to get the crowd excited today. McGoldrick will deliver if he gets the ball in decent positions, and he is still rusty.

Thoroughly dissapointed and depressed after that. Painful.

That cross by Anderson

Brilliant!

That's the best piece of wing play I've seen from him since he joined.

Free kick for the first was a half decent delivery as well.

Well done Paul!

For arugments sake lets ignore the game tonight.

From the squad available, who would you pick?

Does it pick itself?

Presumably the only real decsion to make will be Mings/Parr.

I assume Tabb will play?
