    8/1 for the title is ridiculous, so long as the fans understand that it will take 2-3 seasons to be ready for promotion.

    They might not be the best teams in the world but for the foreseeable they are our level and regardless of what some of the grounds are like Millwall need us to travel and support our team this year more than ever. The majority of our team are going to be young and inexperienced and need us to help them. If it's Crewe away on a cold winter Tuesday night let's pack the away stands. Same goes for the home games, a lot of teams won't have experienced the den before and need this to work in our advantage and bring back the wall of noise. Not going to weigh the kids down with promotion hype but will support them as mistakes will be made and our reaction could break them. On and off the field, COME ON YOU LIONS!

    The bookies are usually right they were last season but I don't understand why have us as second favourites.

    19 players released more look likely to leave leaving a relatively inexperienced squad and a manager unproven in the transfer market and I his first full season.

    Right now I would take a top ten finish anything else would be a bonus, I think it'll be a season of building and as long as we stay clear from a relegation battle I'll be happy.

    Sheffield United, Bradford,, Swindon, Wigan are serious challengers

      @North London Lion: spot on what u say but we will be more competitive in games I agree top 10 finish will be a good start as fans we know it's a tough league but I'm sure Harris will get it right as fans we will stay loyal I'm looking forward to next season

    Too much optimism for Millwall fans at the moment. Anyone who remembers the last two relegations in 1996 & 2006 will remember how difficult it was in the first season down, both times narrowly avoiding another relegation.

    I really hope Harris takes us up at the first attempt but realistically there are other clubs much better prepared than us. Clubs such as Sheffield United who only have to make a few tweaks to win promotion whereas Millwall have to virtually rebuild a new squad.

    I'd be happy to be proven wrong and I sincerely hope we do win promotion but I'm just looking at it realistically, if we sign Hanson or Pope up front and possibly Bently In goal my opinion might change

    L1 is much weaker than the last time Millwall were in it, when we had the likes of Southampton, Norwich, Leeds, and Charlton to contend with. I can see us giving promotion a good go, even with a new squad and manager! COYL

      League 1 s@NOLU1885:

      League 1 weaker don't kid yourself! Some decent teams and some tough players. Charlton and Southampton came up the following season to us both clubs especially Southampton were rebuilding. Norwich went up and down could go back up again whilst Leeds and Charlton have stood still.

      There are no big clubs in league 1 no stand out fixtures but that doesn't mean it'll be any easier

        @North London Lion: Same ol' Millwall supporters, having a p*** and moan! I'll stick with my perhaps misguided optimism for next season.

    I don't think promotion will help us other than extra money for championship status. If we go up unprepared we will come straight back down.
    Get the structure right, bring this crop of youngsters through and get replacements ready with a fantastic academy.
    Get the training ground ship shape, get an improved scouting system.
    A few decent signings now (not sure of details of transfer embargo time frame etc)
    Build build build and go up and stay up.
    We have struggled in championship and need to get there again without worrying about relegation scraps

    IF we get players in quick & blend them with our younger players I can't see many of these teams above taking two many points of us. I've been in this league like the rest of you & it is the weakest it's been apart from Wigan Sheffield Utd & maybe Peterborough.

    WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE SO PESSIMISTIC ?
    We are where we are for whatever reason's,i agree with block 28,div 1 is not that strong this year so please let's be a bit more optimistic for the coming season,after all we do not know what NH is going to pull out the bag as far as transfer's are concerned.
    3 or 4 decent signing's to go with our youngster's could give us a reasonable side,if not then we start to worry.
    SO COME ON YOU GLUM CHAP'S SMILE UNTILL WE KNOW WHAT PLAYER'S WE ARE GOING WITH.

    Sheffield United favourites yet they have sacked their whole management team. Ridiculous even posting odds without any business being done.

    Great stuff - BURTON SHREWSBURY AND BURY instead of QPR FULHAM AND BRENTFORD that's progress - take a bow the big wigs of MILLWALL you have really done us proud or yes CREWE instead of HULL what can you say. I am totally pi..ed off REALLY AM can't wait for the fixtures to come out GILLINGHAM away and Marquis hits a brace to beat Wall - yep they have done us proud. All the hard work by KJ two Wembley play offs and getting into the Championship how the mighty have fallen.
    Yep the big news on NEWS AT DEN the bookies odds - nearly June and no sign of new players yep can't wait for the new journeymen to join. Look at the picture at the top you can see BENTLEY and CORR and PROSSER is somewhere there as well. Moaning yep but every right to we won't see the championship again and all that money which could have set us up for the future JB will probably soon have his diggers churning up Zampa Road. Be lucky.

    Although i think this season will be mostly a re-building season, with a lot of new players coming in, a lot of in-experienced players and of course a new manager! I think we do have a real shot at promotion! Even play offs would be great! Main thing i think we need to focus on is our home form. With our crowd and a real Millwall type team, we can go all season losing two, maybe three games at home! But we have to get the team right! Then if we win say 7 or 8 away games throughout the season, which in this league in certainly do-able, draw a few away games and don't lose too many, we're already looking at what, 60.... 70 points? I'm not stupid, i don't expect this new team to all of a sudden be world beaters! But i'd like to think we would have enough to at least give the top teams in this league a right go! Especially at home!

    Also i think a smarter bet is Gregory for League One's top scorer.... ;)

      @James_SE16: I will go along with you on Gregory,the step up from non league to championship is a big one but he was getting there,so div 1 could be good for him.

    Blackpool have got to be worth a few quid to get relegated again.
