Millwall suffered a bit of an identity crisis ahead of Saturday’s trip to Sheffield Wednesday after their kit man forgot to pack The Lions’ away kit onto the team coach before the squad set out from Bermondsey on the morning of the game.

You had one job! One job!

The slight oversight left Millwall having to play the first half against Wednesday wearing The Owl’s donated yellow away kit while their own orange third kit was rushed up the motorway to Hillsborough in time for a half-time kit change.

Millwall manager Steve Lomas said – “It was just an honest mistake, I think. These things happen. It just added to the madness of the game.”

    Back in my day they would have been made to play in their pants and vest.

    Couldn’t they have bought some replica sheffield wednesday kits just to add to the fun

    With the fabled ‘all the things wrong in football today’ this seems rather charming.
    Hm, I just got a mad idea, if lending away kits would become compulsory, perhaps hooliganism would tone down a bit. Best write “LOL” so I won’t get eaten by the comments to follow.

    Isn’t this the supposed reason almost all teams now have three kits, or as in the case of Spurs, seven?

    I vaguely remember this happening in an England game at Old Trafford not so long ago – can’t remember who the opposition was but I think they ended up having to wear some Costa Rica shirts they bought at JJB… anyone remember that or was it all a crazy dream??
