Lomas not surprised ex-teammate is doing well at Charlton

STEVE Lomas admits he is not surprised that former West Ham teammate Chris Powell has proven to be a successful manager at Charlton.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's South London derby at The Valley, Lomas has paid tribute to opposite number Powell, who he spent two years with at Upton Park.

Lomas said: "When I played with Powelly, he was a model professional, a super guy and a very good player. He's had to change things around at Charlton since his first season in charge, but he's done a good job and I'd expect nothing less because he's very studious.

"He's got great passion and you don't play until the age he did without absolutely loving the game, and I'm sure that comes across to his players. It's not a surprise he's doing well."

Powell is in his fourth season as Addicks manager.

    Despite his club connections, Powell actually seems like a decent bloke. But at the end of day, he's still manager of a bunch of f***-wits, so that's where any deference ends.

      @ascot lion: What Sh*t are we in???? We have 1 point less than last season and by Xmas last year we was in the play-offs!

      We might not make the play-offs but we have much better players this season so not sure what sh*t we are in?

      No matter what I will always believe we will come good because it is only a matter of time before good players, which we have now, will start playing well together as a team and play the 'football' Lomas wants which is on the floor knocking it around or getting the ball into channels for the Strikers to run onto, rather than hoofing it up every 10minutes.

      Remember if Lomas tells his players to play a certain way and we go a goal down and start hoofing it because that's the way they know how to play football, who is in the wrong?? Yes that would be the players!

      I can see what SL is trying to do, just wish people would drop the 'Vermin' as he is our manager and is keen to do well!!

        @Bradders: Well said Bradders. The childish vermin s*** was conveniently forgotten when Curbishley's name was being touted as a replacement for SL, and they conveniently seem to have forgotten all the previous WH personnel that have done us proud over the years, or maybe they are not old enough to remember,hence the childish insults, and if it wasn't for the "vermin" we would not have won the world cup!

          @Sealion: Exactly, maybe a step too far by basically saying the 'Vermin' won us the world cup haha

          It just winds me up, if Lomas has any affection for west spam then he certainly wouldn't have wanted the task of managing Millwall.... takes a man with big balls to do what he has done and now our real captain Robbo has come out and backed him, so not sure what the problem is!!

    Who can forget Harry Cripps? a Millwall legend also a former Hammer. All this claptrap about West Ham connection is patently bizarre. Good luck to Powel, but not tomorrow when Millwall will show who is the better team. I would not be surprised at a draw but fancy another win.

    well said bradders/sealion. your common sense attitude is refreshing and worth reading , everyone on here is entitled to their oppinion, but some of the crap thats written beggars belief. laurie leslie was a super goalie for us in the 60s he came from west ham, harry obeney excellent midfielder for us ,we got him from weat ham in the 60s, dennis burnett was a god, one of the classiest midfielders we,v ever had, then there's the biggest one of all harry cripps. we got all of em from west ham, scum the lot of them apparantly . there are others but i don't want to labour the point any longer

      @bordersarebest0170: Anton Otulakowski - don't ever remember him getting stick for being ex-West Ham.

      Of course, we've had some right donkeys come in at the end of their careers, but I'd like to think they got abuse for their lack of footballing ability. As far as I'm concerned, as soon as they pull on the Millwall shirt or join the management team, then they're part of our club.

      @bordersarebest0170: Nice to read some sensible comments on here, I agree 100% with you. Also why all the expletives f***!***S*** etc whenever WH is mentioned?
      Roger Cross played for us and managed some succesful Millwall youth teams. So what is the problem?
      WishI could see the team tomorrow expecting it to be a barnstorming game with Millwall coming out on top.

    Interesting to note that Powell only won 4 of his first 15 games in charge at Charlton. OK so it was the first 4 which must have kept the pressure off, but no wins in the last 11 games of his first season might have had a few fans wondering if they had done the right thing in giving him his first managerial job. He certainly turned it round so let's hope SL can do the same at our place.
