Gallen: We're the underdogs

Assistant manager Joe Gallen is under no illusions about the task facing Millwall in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Kenny Jackett: Takes his side to Wembley

Lions captain Danny Shittu headed the only goal to sink Blackburn 1-0 in a quarter-final replay at Ewood Park and book a Wembley date against Wigan next month - a rematch of the 1999 Football League Trophy final at the old national stadium that the Latics won 1-0.

Eight seasons in the Premier League mean such humble competitions are a thing of the past for the DW Stadium outfit, and Gallen believes that time at the top table gives them a clear advantage.

"They're a Premier League team and they're the favourites," he said.

"They'll have spent a lot more money on their team than we do on our team.

"We go there as underdogs but - like in any game of football - you don't just go there for a day out, you don't go there just to make the numbers up.

"When we get round to the Wigan game we'll put together a plan and see if we can go and perform well and see what we can do.

The Lions are currently in 17th position in the Championship - five points above the relegation zone, but Gallen won't let talk of a possible European adventure distract his side.

"There's been noting said about that, not from the staff," he added.

"The players talk about whatever they talk about and we don't get to hear that.

"If you look where we are in the league, right now, even though we're getting to the semi-final of an FA Cup, the focus is straight away Charlton on Saturday.

"It's a London derby and we've usually performed well in London derbies in the last five and a half years."

Blackburn also have work to do to a avoid a second consecutive relegation as they lie and point and a place better off than Millwall having played a game more.

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...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.

Wenger hails important win

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.
