Martin confident his chance in Millwall side will come soon

LEE Martin is confident he will soon be given a run of starts in the Millwall side having been limited to mainly substitute appearances so far this season.

Martin put himself in the frame for the team to face Bournemouth on Saturday with a lively second-half cameo in the midweek defeat against Birmingham City.

And the former Ipswich Town midfielder believes it is crucial that he remains upbeat, even when he is not being selected, because inevitably his opportunity will come.

He said: "You have got to have the confidence and self-belief to be able to say 'I want to play and I should be playing', because if you are not like that then you shouldn't be in football in the first place. That sort of mentality gets you to where you want to be.

"But it is a fine line – you have to go about it in the right way by working hard. You cannot react in a negative way when you are left out of the team.

"I am 26 now so I'm not a youngster anymore and I do not let a lot of things get to me; I just keep working hard. If I know I'm doing the right things, then hopefully I do get the opportunity to impress the right people. How you react in training goes a long way.

"When I was younger, I used to think everything had to be right here, right now, but I'm a little bit more patient these days. There's only so much patience you can have but I'm not too worried at this moment in time because it's a long season, and I will get my chance."

    No reason he shouldn't be given a run of games now.

      @Mo Slater Fruit and Veg: Polar bear walks into a pub; 'Can I have a........................................................pint of lager. 'Course' says the barman, but why the long pause?'

      A white horse walks into a pub and the barman says 'I've got a whisky named after you' ; the horse says 'What, Derek?'

      I've been impressed with Martin from what I've seen. Would like to see him get a start soon.

    A man walks into a pub, orders a pint and then pisses on the floor.
    'I'm so sorry' says the man.
    'Get out you dirty b******' says the barman.
    Next week, same thing happens, man apologies profusely but the barman bans him for a month.
    Following month, same man comes in looking very sheepish. Barman eyes him up and warns him that if there's a repeat he'll be barred for life. 'It's ok' says the man, ' I've been seeing a psychiatrist'
    Barman gives him a pint. Man takes all his clothes off and pisses on the floor. Barman says ' you told me you've been seeing a psychiatrist'
    !!' I have' says the man ' and now I don't feel guilty about it anymore'

    A rabbit goes into a pub 'Got any carrots?', 'No' says the landlord, 'we're a pub, we sell drinks and crisps and nuts'. 'Ok' says the rabbit and hops out. Next day the rabbit returns; 'Got any carrots?'; 'No' says the landlord, 'I told you, we're a pub, we don't sell carrots'.
    This goes on for a whole week, by which time the landlord is getting fed up, so much so that when the rabbit hops in on the Friday the landlord tells the rabbit 'Listen here, if you come in here tomorrow and ask me for carrots again I'm going to nail your stupid long ears to the bar'
    On the Saturday the rabbit hops in again. The rabbit says to the landlord 'Got any nails?' the landlord replies 'No' - 'Got any carrots?' asks the rabbit.

      @Mo Slater Fruit and Veg: Did you hear about the dyslexic pimp? Opened a warehouse.

      Did you hear about Cadbury's new far eastern range? Might just be chinese whispers.

      Mate of mine's got a one armed butler, lost his left arm - serves him right!

      Sorry folks, I love a bad joke!

      Ran into a botox clinic waiting room and dropped me trousers - no one batted an eye?

    I booked myself and the girlfriend a table the other night and told her we'd have a romantic time together. Turns out I wasted my time. I mean, it's not my fault she's useless at snooker...

    On a more important note, I would like Martin to get a start, just to freshen up the team. I doubt SL will make 5-6 changes but a couple could make a difference. If the players were getting ahead of themselves after a few good performances then a kick up the backside is needed.

    If they used that sort of material at the Comedy Club they'd be covered on eggs inside 5 minutes. Never read so many s*** jokes in such a short time. Oh how I didn't laugh

      @mewall62: Unfunniest fans on earth if the effort above are anything to go by. Seems me like someone's been at the Christmas Crackers early - or more likely late as you'd need to be a bit slow to come out with that guff

    I have never been a James Henry fan but if lomas can see Martin as a better option then we might as well prepare ourselves for league 1 next season, worse player we have had since mcgammon
