Honestly I’m not sure I want to go up with this team. Can’t remember the last time we had a good game

Zero chance of finishing top 2. This team just not good enough.
Hector been a revelation but there is no fluidity to our play and the midfield looks so disjointed.

Even from my pessimistic outlook of thinking we'll finish playoffs, Millwall away is a good point but as Brom showed last game, an automatic team/champion, puts them away and we didn't. We never really looked dangerous to be honest.

Only 1 gear and chances created seem to be drying up.

Not sure we're good enough for top 2. What the past few games have shown me though is that perhaps we do have the grit after all to be competitive within the playoffs. 2017/18 Fulham win (and won) this game 3-0 after weathering the storm.

I think Millwall -  a team of industrious plodders - deliberately 'cultivate' that farmyard of a pitch to disadvantage the footballing sides that play there.

Maybe, but how many chances did WestBrom create on the same turf?

We are trailing automatics on goal difference. We, along with 6 other teams have a very good chance of finishing in top 2.

The midfield looks ok even sometimes good when Cairney is not the only one with a mature footballing brain. So today it looked hopeless.

We had a good game 4 days ago, for example.

The exact same pitch that WBA gave them a footballing lesson on last Sunday

The exact same pitch that beat Leeds and Brentford, drew with Forest. Not sure why everyones being short sighted, this was a good result made average by a poor refereeing decision.

It will sound like sour grapes now but I have always hated this. If you have a team that plays at such a high level then you should require a certain standard of pitch. A team that plays more physical long-ball football is not disadvantaged by such a pitch, but a team that plays passing and possession-based football is. If you flip it round, the hoofball teams are not disadvantaged by a smooth pitch so it's not really tit for tat. Football at such a level should not be influenced by how muddy or rough a pitch is. And let's not weep for smaller teams who 'can't afford it'. At this level, they can.

And made average but our complete lack of creativity and ambition to score. We really didn't press at all. Hats off to Millwall, they worked their shorts off.

I thought Wallace had a good game too.
