The Real Millwall Fan Show 11.07.19
Well hello, good evening and ... [checks notes David Frost style] welcome to this first edition of the Real Millwall Fan Show of the 2019-20 season.
Now if you’d have asked me my feelings about our beloved Lions a few weeks ago, I’d have into a semi-meltdown, wailing that we were shipping out players and were looking like playing Lottery Larry as first choice goalkeeper.
But now? I am much more optimistic, the signings of Matt Smith, Conor Mahoney and Frank Fielding in goal having raised my spirits as we enter the traditional Millwall pre-season phase of trips to Canvey Island, the Medway towns and the maximum security HMP Vilamoura complex on the Algarve.
I hope you enjoy this early season show, recorded via the miracle of Skype and hosted by Aaron sat in an MOT garage located somewhere in West London. Big thank yous too to my usual co-hosts Harry ‘F1’ Warren and Michael ‘Club Shop’ Avery. Advance welcome to a new voice who will emerge over the weeks ahead in Mike Hayden.
I hope you enjoy the show, the conversation spark notes are copied below just because I thought you might like it.
Arrivederci Millwall ...
