Robinson urges Millwall supporters to back new boss Lomas

CLUB captain Paul Robinson insists Millwall fans should be not worried about Steve Lomas' West Ham history.

Lomas, who will officially meet the media at a press conference on Monday morning, made 187 appearances for the Hammers during his playing days – but has crossed the London divide to take up the hotseat at The Den.

Robinson said: "I don't think we can judge him on what's gone on in the past – only on what he does at Millwall. Football is about winning and if Steve does that here, he'll be a success.

"There's no getting away from his past but he hasn't hidden from it – he's been honest about it and is obviously very keen to come to a club like Millwall. I think everyone's got to get behind him and give him the best possible chance."

And Robinson believes Lomas is a smart choice to replace Kenny Jackett. He said: "Steve's done very well in Scotland. He took over at St Johnstone in a situation not too dissimilar to ours after Derek McInnes moved on.

"It is a bit like that with Kenny, who took the club a long way. Hopefully everything is set up for Steve to come down, make an impact and take the club forward."

    This is a bit tired now. Just plug up the gaping holes that were clearly evident last term and the rest will take care of itself.

    Dont get all this talk about SL getting backing if he does this and that, he is now the Manager of Millwall FC so its the team that we support both managers & players just pass through but the constant parts of the club atr the club its self and the supporters that IS the club.

    Just wish all this West Ham nonsense will end. It is irrelevent and boring. I hope to see some new faces in the team soon and a previous one (Steven Reid, wishful thinking?) Let SL get on with his job and focus on next season because it is not going to be easy.

      Dunne has just been given a contract extension and from what I read, Lomas holds Dunne in high regard. On that basis, I'd consider it unlikely that Reid is coming to Millwall. The defence does need tweaking but the real accent must be on the forward line and midfield. That's where the money should go.

    Reid would be great, but apparently he is close to agreeing a new one-year deal to stay at West Brom.
    Lafferty has signed for Palermo (average home gate 37,000!!!!)
