Alan Dunne: Hoping to enjoy a memorable day out at Wembley

The 30-year-old defender was a first-year apprentice when Latics tamed the Lions in the 1999 Football League Trophy final.

That contest was played at the old Wembley, and they will lock horns at the new stadium this weekend.

Dunne hopes it will be a happy return to the home of English football after 14 years of hurt, with Millwall determined to claim a notable Premier League scalp.

He said: "I was at that game as a young boy against Wigan in 99.

"It was the only time I'd been to the old Wembley.

"So obviously we owe them for that. It's a coincidence we have got them again at Wembley and now it's our turn to get one over on them."

Dunne is also eyeing a final date with capital rivals Chelsea, who face Manchester City in Sunday's second semi-final.

He added: "As a London club I think it would be fantastic to have a Chelsea-Millwall final.

"I don't think the FA would be buzzing about it, but for us it would be great to play Chelsea. They're a huge side with some fantastic players."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
