    Just bought my tickets for this, so let's get a thread started. The replies may make double figures, who knows.

    Bradford were the team I wanted to avoid, we haven't beaten them on the last four occasions we've played and they're usually cagey games. Our attacking performances at Bristol and Scunthorpe should certainly give us cause for optimism though.

    To lose two playoff finals in a row would be pretty hard to take, and while being in this division isn't the world ending disaster some Millwall fans think it is, it would be great to go up and try and crack the thirty point barrier next season.

    Fun fact: Bradford's last game at Championship level was a 1-0 defeat at the Den in 2004. Well, it's a fact anyway.

    Good luck to you both.
    At least football at this level is entertaining, mostly. Have you seen the entertainment the Prem offers, this season its worse than watching grass grow, I would rather watch the skyblues play and that is saying something after this season.
    The Prem has been bloody awful so I'm looking forward to watching this final as I know both teams will at least give it all.

    Think this will be a great final, as @No-One Likes Us says two play off defeats in a row will hurt Milwall.

    I havent been to Bradford so from a 'ticking off grounds' point of view i'd like to see them win however another big smoke away day thrown into the mix is also pretty tasty.

    Good luck to both.

    Got my tickets this morning too, hotel booked straight away Sundays game. Looking forward to it!
    While Millwall don't want to lose two play off finals in a row, we don't want to lose to Millwall for the second time (or third) after they beat us over two legs last year.
    Technically we're a much better team than last season but both league games have shown there's nothing between the teams.
    Will be another close game I would have thought. Just hope Wyke finds his scoring boots again and Alex Jones is fit.

    Good luck Millwall. It's a very northern looking Championship next season, even more so if you don't win and Fulham go up.

    Sold 16k yesterday, can't see the full 38k going though.

    Can't wait for this, two nights down there and it'll certainly be eventful should we win.

    Don't think we'll do it though, Millwall are a good side and after last year they'll want it even more.

    Given the amount of draws Bradford have had this season this has got penalty shoot-out written all over it.

    Enjoy the day and good luck

    Got a great record of beating Yorkshire (or close enough) teams in the semi-finals. Got a terrible record of beating them in the actual final.

    It would be hilarious if we went up this season. We have looked ragged as **** and, bar the cup run and the play-off games, completely out of ideas. Whoever loses this game is in for a world of hurt next year, I think. Don't think either fanbase can cope with another year at this level after going so close twice in a row.

    You say a world of hurt, but with a solid base, minted Germans and Wyke & Jones we're gonna piss this league if we play in it.

    Couple of sleeps to go, starting to get nervy now. From reading our forums, a lot of Millwall are confident, which doesn't usually bode well.

    I'm one of (seemingly) few who don't actually mind Millwall but I have two very good friends who are Bradford fans so I'd like them to come up with us for that reason alone.

    All the best to both of you, enjoy your day out!

    Want Bradford to win because they've more than done their time in the lower leagues but I also don't mind Millwall and wouldn't be sad if they came up either. If there's one thing you can say for them they're certainly not bland!

    Surprised the top tier's mostly empty on both sides.

    Two big clubs who should be in the Championship. I'd like to see Bradford do it as like SamB said they've done their time.

    Thought these were two big clubs? Top tier is empty. Loads of empty seats in the bottom two tiers also.
