1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

I was looking forward to visiting Ewood Park as I had never been before and it's always looked a tidy ground from when I have seen it on television.

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

I used the official coach provided by Millwall so it was very easy. Coach parked right outside the away stand.

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?

We didn't arrive until gone two, so we made our way straight into the ground. Did not seem to be many home supporters about.

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?

I was impressed with the ground. From turning up outside the away stand it looked huge. Made my way inside and took my seat. It's what I call a proper football stadium with the stands fairly close to the pitch. Three sides very neat, tidy and match and should they build the fourth side to match then the ground could be up there with the very best.

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

I really enjoyed the game. Very good performance from my team recording a very impressive away win. Blackburn is not a happy place at the moment and the atmosphere from the home end was unsurprisingly subdued but the travelling support was very vocal and it made for a great atmosphere.

The facilities in the away end were very good as are the catering facilities. Stewards were helpful and friendly. Only complaint was they do not let you outside at half time for a cigarette so the toilets soon become the alternative place to smoke which is not very pleasant.

6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

As I was on the coach it was very easy.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Really enjoyed my trip to Blackburn. For once the weather was better up north than it was down south, a fantastic performance and a fine away win by Millwall and the 65th ground ticked off my list.
