Cristiano, Lionel, Gareth and now ..............Danny!

18th March 2013
Watching football on TV recently we have marvelled at the skills of Messrs Ronaldo, Messi and Bale, who have inspired their teams to greatness over the past year and in some cases far longer, however a new star has emerged!

At this point I must own up to being a Millwall fan and ex Director of the Lions and I refer of course to the most recent superstar at The Den, Danny Shittu! Not for him the glamour of La Liga, the Champions League or the Premier League, but big Danny has left a massive impression in the hearts and minds of all Millwall fans with some spectacular recent performances.

Shittu, a much travelled central defender is in his second spell with Millwall and he has already joined the ranks of Kitchener, Cripps, Hurlock and Harris by attaining cult hero status. His leadership skills in forcing Millwall through to an FA Cup Semi Final by demolishing a pretty dire Blackburn side were evident for all to see. In the original tie, the man mountain fired in two incredible shots from 30 yards that so nearly won the game and in the replay it was his diving header that saw the Lions reach Wembley.

Shittu is adored by the Millwall faithful and his “this is what we do” phrase has been trending worldwide (well through South East London anyway!).

Earlier in the year he turned down the chance to play in the African Cup of Nations for Nigeria to help Millwall’s quest for Championship glory. Sadly, league success is not for us this season, but with Shittu’s stature and presence, we have a chance of beating Wigan and another European adventure.

Danny, you’ve found a home in a little corner of SE16, if “no one likes us” we don’t care because we’ve got Danny Shittu!
