    The crowd yesterday of 12,000 was very disappointing against the League Leaders and only Rotherham had less?
    We all know Millwall supporters that do not go and what can be done to get more to the Den.
    Can the Club do more to get bigger support ?
    Maybe the stay aways need to be convinced more that there is something worth going to see ?
    Our Home form over the last couple of years would not of helped.
    Our lack of goals also does not help.
    We should of got 15,000+ yesterday at least, and JB`s call for bigger support just is not happening.

      @Longfield lion
      A pal of mine sent me an e mail,it was about millwall 25 year's ago,we had just beaten coventry 4-1 and we were sitting top of the league,the crowd a mere 12,500 so if we could not get the crowds then what chance have we got now.

    12,000 ain't bad considering we lost two on the trot only 3,000 off of a full house, it can be expensive for students around my age a group of lads would rather hold on to there money and go for a night out on a Saturday! As they may think it could be wasted money when they don't perform.

      @conor: well when you come up with a formula for knowing when a games going to be good let us know. Pathetic crowd yesterday. Poor show by the Forest fans as well.

        @Lincolnshire Lion:

        Alright you want a formula? Even though i thought its was obvious because most of us have been complaining about since chris wood left.

        Perhaps a proven goal scorer is a start,
        Not some unproven c*** from Watford who's 6ft5 and can't jump.

        Maybe if we'relucky enough maybe a half decent winger who can cross the ball,instead of playing useless Easter out of position (who was no existent the entire game)

        I think that could be a 'formula'

        Before anyone says "no one turns up so we don't have enough money to buy players" you have to invest to get a profit. I'm not slagging off the chairman one bit because I love him but as I've seen someone say before on here "you pay Peanuts you get monkeys" I'm afraid until that changes you ain't getting a full house.

        12,000 is a start considering how bad it was at the beginning of last season.

    Poor turnout against the league leaders. Same old vicious cycle, success will ensure good gates, but you need moneyto buy decent players, which in turn might bring success. A season of loanees looks on the cards, but if that goes belly up the players will want to return to their parent clubs. Back to the vicious cycle. We will never be able to compete with the countries bigwigs as we are financially restricted.

      @bobthelion: welcome Bob. Very good idea. Also i paid £29 to sit in the dockers yesterday. I cant get a season ticket cos work commitments, so not financially viable. To do so. With my son yesterday spent over £100 . So for the ocasional punter of the street it aint cheap.

    Millwall should send out a army style "we want you" leaflets to a 1 mile or more radius around the den. And with the leaflet you get (x) amount of money of the ticket.

    Surely the marketing team can't be that useless.

    The word is INCENTIVE. Its what people need

      @Dazi: interesting thought but you might want to look around the area before doing that! I doubt very much if the majority of millwall supporters actually live in the area anymore, and the people who are there, well let's just say English football is a lower priority than rice and peas of you get my point

    Woolford's shot across the box was crying out for a striker to get on the end of it, No one took a gamble and that's what we are missing. As for the crowd,, Millwall banning people for no good reason and over zealous stewarding wont help increase the crowd numbers.

      @Eightieswall: do we really have over 3000 on banning orders and another 1000 who are scared of the stewards!!!!! sorry mate not being argumentative but your barking up the wrong tree, the problem is much deeper and nobody is addressing it as far as i can see. Spoke about this last week, said there would be around 12000 for forest which is a discrace (2000 from forest) ollie is building a decent team with limited funds, we played really well second half yesterday and yes i was there. like i said before some people dont deserve to have a team in this league, they need to get off of there a***'s and get down a support the team when they can or the same people will be moaning saying not going to watch league one football!!!

        @macman2: a lot of people just can't afford it or are not willing to spend money feeling it might not be a good game others are working in this 24hr world we now live in but most of the time they can't be arsed happy to wear the shirt and tell everyone I'm millwall. Think you should just except the ones that go are the real deal. Got to get them young

        Im not saying there are 3,000 on bans nor did i suggest people are scared of the stewards, But it has a lot to do with it, We lost the last 2 games which don't help entice a crowd and its expensive if you have kids as well. If people dont want to go thats there decision. Its easy for you to say people dont deserve the team but after watching the last 2 seasons battling relegation with a manager from the scottish league and no ideas im not surprised the gates are down. We were getting 3,000 at home back in the eighties and averaging 8,000 in the nineties and in the last 4 years we have averaged 11,500.

          @Eightieswall: mate that was tongue in cheek about the stewards and we have 70 on banning orders most of whom we can do with out. Your right people cant afford to go to every game, i cant! what i'm getting at is this league has moved on its massive and we have to move on with it if we are going to stay in it and have a chance of the promised land. i'd just like to see a bit of effort being made

        @macman2: One of the facts about our recent trips to Wembley is that a high proportion of ticket applications came from the Kent area. The demographic changes in London over the last 30 years or so have meant a lot of our traditional support has moved south. If Charlton fans can get their Kentish fans to the Valley on organised coaches, why can't we do the same? At least can't the club or the MSC try it before the Den's car park is turned into flats?

          @Canterbury pilgrim: "By partnering with Millwall we are looking to help the club broaden its appeal to the wider community by supplementing transport links, arranging special promotions for supporters. That's wot are new sponsors said on this site when they signed up. So MSC should look into it & tell our FOTB.

            @macman2: I moved back to SE14 15 years ago but knew of many Wall fans around the city in the 10 years I lived in Canterbury. The club is clearly missing a trick. Anyone know how many Charlton bus in? Can't the club do a survey on the feasibility of supporters' coaches? Aldo, can you look into this for us?

    I go to every game, but this game was like the old Millwall. Love Ollie, but Easter is crap, no brains no ability- same with Beevers and Dunne. Look at the difference when Fuller, Upson and Maggie came on. Different wall. Surely Chaplow wasnt unfit/injured from just 1 game? We seem to go 2 steps-forward 1 step back. All these chipped balls forward from defence is league one stuff- even Forde was hoofing it too quickly forward. Williams and Upson are class, actually most of our midfield are good- but we need a defence to match, and play Maggie in the middle from the start please.

    When will we learn Easter is useless, he drives his black merc like an idiot too, sums him up. C'mon Ollie, we need to build from defence like George Graham, the only reason we didn't concede was because Forest didn't turn up. Time for Maggie to shine, give him a chance not 25 mins please! If he doesn't score in 3 starts, I will eat my Spall 1987 beanie hat.

      @Alexdangelo:

      fair analysis bur Easter is playing out of position - he wouldn't be great in his proper place but he is a goal poacher 6 yard box but he has to have a free role behind the striker like MacDonald plays - but yes our build up is too slow at times and Maggie could be played for his pace - especially away from home - I think at home Ollie is determined to maximise possession , and keep control of the ball - he likes to get a foothold in a game and build up the pressure slowly - that is where a more dynamic forward would come in - we might have been able to exploit forest's tiredness last 10 mins with Maggie through the middle, but then we lose the width

    Bring back standing ASAP and £10.00 to get in.

    It used to be the case that going to the pictures cost the same as football.

    There's an imbalance that needs correcting, may peep ol are financially stretched and it's become a luxury to watch football. The peoples game, not any more?

    a couple of things 1. i work saturdays but make all the evening games and have to book a saturday well in advance. 2. its also a c--t to get to and get out of london fron kent. 3 there is probably less than 10% of wall fans that live within a mile radius of the ground and unpess you want a kebab or persian and african food thats all you get down the old kent road now, maybe they should rename the place as old refugee road ffs. let people pay on the day like the good old but obviously let season ticket holders have their seats and members choose theres but do a last minute deal to attract people on matchday also evening games should be cheaper
