      @MFC Lion: I fancy Wolves to do well, playoffs possibly. I just feel that momentum, feel good factor, big crowds, plus the fact that one promoted team always seems to do well. But who knows.

    Reversing those odds does mean of course that the bookies have us, Charlton and Blackpool as relegation candidates. Going to be good to upset a few punters.

    One thing is for sure if you like a little flutter then have a few quid on Millwall to win the handicap betting. If we are priced at 100/1 anywhere, then a mid-table finish, which is by no means beyond us will be a nice little earner.

      I totally agree.
      Birmingham finished below us, were in freefall and their chairman is in prison but they are 66/1?
      Charlton finished 3 points ahead of us sacked their manager and are 80/1?
      We finished the season in playoff form, we have kept our manager, the chairman is not in prison and he is matching the investment he made last year.
      It would be nice to know the odds for a top half finish as I will definitely having a flutter.

    Far too early for odds a day after we officially know who we will be playing, nobody has done any business yet so what are the odds based on? Last season? Team names? Crazy.

    Do not know where odds above come from ?
    I looked at Skybet and we are 40-1 - a more realistic price if you ask me.

    Had to listen to a charlton fan mouthing off how lucky we were to stay up, after listening to the diarrhea come from his mouth, i ended up having a £100 bet that we would finish higher than the anoraks, that was before they got rid of their manager - sweet.

    That's why they say never judge a book by it's cover. Crystal palace and Burnley are a good example of it tipped for relegation but got promoted.

      It don't hurt to dream - as long as you don't put your house on it!! (maybe a fiver at 100/1???) COYL!!!

      p.s. I reckon the bloke who made these up doesn't like us very much... either that, or he's Millwall and wants to make us all rich!!
      Brentford 25/1 and Rotherham 50/1 ?!?!?! Hahahaha what a load of b o l l o c k s!

    not to say i think that we will struggle , personally i think we showed great character at the back of last season & we were growing from strength to strength, hence we stayed up, as for going up a few big clubs there that want that price & who's to say it cant be us

    I am convinced with a few clever additions we will do well next season, the motivation is there IH will have a complete pre-season to mold the side together and we will be hovering around the top half by Christmas.

      @Peckhamlad: yes i agree , confidence is high throughout the club from the manager , board, players & fans / supporters, if we are there or there abouts after Christmas we will have a good shout at going up. Last year going into the season with lomas we all knew it was going to be a struggle from the word go & probably most including myself was already seeing 1st Division football for us - this time round its different , we have a cracking manager in Ollie & everyone is behind him , board , players & the fans & our expectations are much more positive

    I think a 13th placed finish which everyone should be happy with (better to have gradual momentum with feet on the ground isn't it). The bookies have us down as 2nd favourites for bottom place(??); this I don't get.

        @Alex Aldridge: The only issue with the dislike button I see is if people will just click it instead of engaging in rational conversation - people are lazy after all. The conversation is what brings me here. It is an interesting addition this dislike thing. But perhaps you could run a non-footballing headline story on it to test the water and reactions before rolling it out permanently to ensure it is not something which ends up being abused? Thanks for the excellent website Alex, and please don't take this as criticism of your appreciated efforts!

    Looks a strong league this season, thank god we have ollie from the start.. gonna be a struggle again but think we will be much improved and fighting from the start this season, would be buzzing with a mid table finish.. and being favourites to be relegated will spur us on no doubt.. gonna be an interesting season!

        @Jim28: after the last two seasons I think finishing middle table would be a great improvement and would take it if offered now.

        Sure teams have crap seasons and then get top 6 or promoted the next season but that's rarely the case.

        Relegated teams have even more parachute money as well as those from previous seasons so ever more tough to compete.

        @Jim28: "we should be eyeing the top 6" I agree in the sense we should be looking upwards towards achievement and not over our shoulders like the last two seasons. At the same time all fans should be happy with steady progress in one of Europe's most competitive divisions. This might be 2nd tier English football, but this tier shadows most of Europe's top tier divisions. A club our size building mid-table stability in one of Europe's toughest divisions is an achievement and a massive foundation to build upon. If we get a mid-table finish next season I, for one, would be chuffed.

    Just a side issue, today I saw a youtube clip , an interview on 60 minutes australia with Tim cahill, it's probably been seen by lots of you guys before but he explained how as a kid he,d been offered various contracts including a premier league gig before telling his manager he wanted to sign with millwall. The guts of this story was that he described it as the defining moment of his career and that millwall had the most passionate supporters in the world! 1 min 34 seconds is all it took to sum up what a massive club this is, not in size maybe but definitely in heart.

      @grassgrower: Grassgrower i have just watched that interview,all of what he gave us on the pitch was in that interview,signed for us because we gave him his chance and he wanted to repay millwall for giving him that chance,millwall fans the most passionet in the world,he did not have to say those things if he did not want to,i always loved that guy as a player,he had great skill but most of all he had the heart of a lion,the millwall lion.
      I always thought him a millwall legend,but after that interview he is even more so now.
      the interview was well picked by you THANKS
