Millwall fans reply to tweet from Arsenal loanee Dan Ballard
A number of Millwall fans have replied to Dan Ballard on Twitter after the Arsenal loanee’s latest display for the Championship side on Saturday.
The Lions became only the second side to deny the Baggies victory this season as they took a point away from the Hawthorns.
It was Kyle Bartley who opened the scoring four minutes after the break. But it was cancelled out shortly after by another centre-back with connections to Arsenal’s academy.
Ballard looped a back post header back across the goal. The finish prompted wild celebrations from the Northern Ireland international.
The 21-year-old also won four aerial duels, and made five clearances and two interceptions, according to Whoscored.
And his performance prompted many of the Millwall fans on social media to laud the young defender.
Several insisted that they would love for the Gunners starlet to be signed permanently. He has clearly made a major impression in the opening weeks of his loan spell at The Den.
Ballard impressed at the sharp end of League One last term, helping Blackpool to promotion to the second tier.

And he appears to have stepped up his game now he is playing at a higher level.
He is definitely leaving Arsenal with a little food for thought. But Millwall fans hope that his long-term future lies with them given the start he has made to life with the club.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Millwall fans reacted to Ballard’s tweet following Saturday’s draw with West Brom…
