From my kitchen in Sweden i watched via the internet, i came across a link to a free web sharing football site and was chuffed to bits. I sat back and watched with Horror as the camera man pointlessly zoomed in at empty bits of turf and overweight fans in the crowd. i couldn't make out anything that was going on until i realised that the match hadn't kicked off yet.
Then the match began and i watched with Horror as the camera man pointlessly zoomed in at empty bits of turf and overweight fans in the crowd.
Eventually he got to grips and inbetween pointless zooming in on players without the ball i saw some of the game .
With no commentary on the live stream i decided to take matters into my own hands and impersonate Brenner Wooley with guest co commentator Alan Hanson.
For 30 minutes i was unimpressed with our lack of passing and panicking in possession. With Carlos Edwards looking more composed on the ball than any of the town team i was beginning to get agitated. I turned to the cupboard and went for the 70% cocoa chocolate orange bar and some ready salted crisps which i think was the turning point as Bishop danced into the Millwall box only to fall but with the loose ball falling to McGoldrick who calmly slotted home via a slight deflection (which any striker will tell you was planned).
After the goal town seemed a lot more composed on the ball, we stated stringing more than 3 passes together and even the cameraman had got to grips with zooming in and out.
Half time came and not wanting to lose the generous free stream provided by the internet i indulged in more crisps and watched the town subs do some warm ups. The real half time action came when the cameraman decided to zoom in on a sprinkler and i wondered if he was missing the cheerleaders of yesteryear that provided so much entertainment to the pervs in the Lower North.
Second half was all town, Murphy scoring what many would refer to as a pants tap in after pants defending by Millwall. It was game set and match then and we should have scored more except McGoldrick kept blasting the ball into the stands (probably out of frustration from not playing away at stoke today).
All in all a good result, Mick will be happy with 3 points and a clean sheet, probably not so happy when he watches the game highlights on DVD and all he sees are fat people, sprinklers and empty turf. But hey, if the cameraman is called Skuse, he'll be back on Tuesday.

A fired-up IPSWICH took full advantage of Fulhams shambolic summer to secure a convincing victory in Fulhams first game in the Championship for 40 years.
The visitors started with nine new faces and could only name four players on the bench amid rumours of player registration issues.
And the lack of cohesion and unity showed before the break asMurphys calm sidefoot finish made it -0.
Fulham improved but wasted a couple of half-chances and town eased to victory.
Town also had opportunities after McG made it 2 nil to increase the lead but the fact it only finished 2-0 came as surprise after a first half dominated by the hosts at a sell-out Portman Road Ground.

Nottingham Forest's win was only their second in 13 games against Blackpool
Rampant Forest, buoyed by Pearce's much-anticipated homecoming and the double signing of Britt Assombalonga and Antonio after a difficult week, were too strong for a Blackpool side beset by off-field ownership issues and unrest.
The Tangerines only had eight players registered with less than two weeks to go before the start of the season and they understandably played like strangers.
They did at least show spirit in the opening 20 minutes.
And despite barely getting out of their own half, they had the best chance when Nathan Delfouneso headed wastefully wide from a free-kick.

Pearce on Forest v Blackpool
But the Reds, with Andy Reid majestically directing play from the centre of midfield, were in control.
They led when Reid's swerving long-range strike came back off the post and was calmly placed into the back of the net by debutant Antonio.
The goal prompted a familiar Pearce fist-pump in celebration and within five minutes the former England Under-21 boss was celebrating again, turning to the crowd and applauding after Burke's fabulous curled shot from the edge of the box.
But with a hammering looking likely, Blackpool improved considerably, playing with greater discipline in midfield, closing Reid down and posing problems in the final third through Delfouneso and Andrea Orlandi.
Orlandi curled an effort just wide after a fine passing move and Forest began to tire and misplace their passes.
Assombalonga had a couple of half-chances but was unable to get a clear opportunity and the goal he so craved.
The home side also failed to make the most of numerous good positions but did not need the security of a third goal.
