Cardiff City host Millwall tomorrow with both sides pushing hard and flying high in the early Championship table. The majority of footballing fans around the country would immediately see the potential for trouble at this fixture, rather than contemplate the intriguing footballing encounter between a Bluebirds side packed with star quality and gunning for promotion, and a newly promoted Millwall outfot, well drilled and adapting well to Championship life.
I can't speak for Millwall, but through the fantastic efforts of the club, organisations like the Valley Rams, and individuals including Vince Alm, Paul Corkrey and co - Cardiff City FC does not deserve the villainous reputation we carry round the country. There remain a number of idiots, who associate with the club but these individuals are not true Bluebirds supporters and bring embarrassment and inconvenience to the fantastic travelling support.
This Saturday will see another near sell-out at the CCS, with the majority of the ground showing limited availability and a decent walk-up crowd expected on the day. Millwall have also sold their tickets well and will bring in excess of 1200 up the motorway for a fixture that is not a bubble trip - meaning the behavious is in the spot-light and will set precedents for the future.
CCS is a fantastic place to watch football week-in, week-out and we have progressed immeasurably as a club in the past decade. We are fortunate to have a great new stadium, be fighting for promotion to the Premiership and have star quality like Chopra, Bellamy and co. in the squad. Through all that, we have retained the passion, support and hostility that made Ninian Park our fortress and it's certain that Millwall's fans will enjoy their banter and day out too.
There is the potential for emotions to run high and spill over, however, it's all about the football and it is fully expected that all passion, emotion and excitement will be chanelled into getting 100% behind Dave Jones and his team. No nonsense, just noise.
Cardiff City vs Millwall, 25th September, 12pm.
