Holloway: January signings can help Millwall stop the rot

IAN Holloway has reiterated Millwall's desire to strengthen in January, saying that new additions are needed to "stop the rot".

Holloway believes he must overhaul his squad now rather than in the summer after a run of just two wins in 19 matches.

The Lions' final game of 2014 ended in a 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Sunday.

And afterwards Holloway said: "We're going to have to simplify things, go from back to front and I'm going to need some more choices.

"I'm going to need them now to help this group out, it's as simple as that. I have to bring in some other people.

"The money was all spent [in the summer] but I'm sure my chairman will help me because a lack of confidence can spread really quickly.

"We've got to stop the rot, we want to stay in this division and I want to be given a chance to build.

"I need some more options, particularly up front. We have to accept where we are now and move on.

"The chairman will help me move this on more quickly than I thought we had to because this isn't good enough.

"I need a couple of different options so that I can play a couple of different formations and that would really help.

"We need pace, a big fella and some goals up there.

"Maybe we've found a new centre half already – maybe Sid Nelson can play and maybe Jake Goodman could come back. We need to stop conceding."

But Holloway admits that making big changes in January is not going to be easy.

"The closer we are to the wrong end of the league and the harder our results, who is going to want to come here?" he said.

"Who will want to loan their players to us? It's going to be tough, we know that, and this is the worst window to do deals in.

"We were hoping to get to next summer and that the team would continue to improve but it hasn't worked.

"Not enough of them have done well enough.  For the last three seasons this group has struggled, end of story, so things aren't any different.

"We might have to break the rules on spending and get in trouble for it next year. We started the season so well that it didn't look like I had to make that many changes.

"But if people lose confidence, you need to do something else.

"The hardest thing is finding out where our market is and who is actually going to come here.

"I'd have thought Premier League clubs would lend us their players but if I can't do that at the minute then I'll have to buy some.

"You have also got to find clubs that are willing to sell right now. It's not a buying window unless you've got zillions.

"Who will sell their striker or winger halfway through a season?

"Normally the only ones you can get are the ones coming out of contract and their clubs decide to take some money now because they're not going to sign new deals."

    January is a terrible time to be shopping for players, but unfortunately we really have very little choice. I hate being in this position but we need to rebuild now and I am glad that the Club are taking action. also, very excited at the prospect of Goodman and Nelson playing, albeit with a more Snr Pro at their side.

    The bit that jumped out at me from this whole article, which scares the s*** out of me is the bit where he says I need more options so I can play a couple of different formations! How many more can we play ffs. You played 3 in one game yesterday Ollie. Somehow I think we're absolutely f***** this year. Such a shame but all my high hours have been shattered!!!

        @Luke ColdBlow10: i may be wrong, but im sure there was quote from him regarding 442 and he says he doesn't play it as he doesn't have good enough wingers to make it effective. So if he gets some January then we may well see a bit more 442.

    First of it has to be said that the 3 areas you mentioned was pretty obvious to the fans..you lose the hoff but didn't replace him with a similar player..we all knew there is no pace in the team.and lastly gregory needed a good striker to help..not some old fart who was past it years ago...so if the fans could see these weakeness why is it you couldn't..fool

    Only one new signing matters in January and that's a new manager. For God's sake don't let Holloway waste anymore of the clubs money - he has to go.

    Yes, we know we need a quality forward and it would be nice to bring in better players elsewhere, but more important is someoner who can make the most of the large squad we already have.

      @Micky Lions: I think IH will be with us till end of the season, no matter what. JB trusts him and wants to let him invest his money, so u;ultimately its his choice. Forget any new management coming in, it just won't happen. I actually think that IH needs a chance to sign a few players of his choosing, but don't think he will get what he needs int he January window.

      @Micky Lions:
      The squad we have is s*** and is mainly down to jackett and lomas. Holloway needs to be able to get rid of all the players we are wasting money on (Chaplow, bywater, wright, Easter, marquis, hoyte, Robinson, plus a few more) and use that money plus a bit more to bring in his own players. He will still be here next season no matter where we are anyway.

    Holoway you inherited a league one squad and you've had two transfer windows thus far to sort it out and we still have a league one squad! Our decent run at the end of last season happened when you brought in a target man upfront which played to the strengths of that squad, its not rocket science to realise that this what was needed this season, obviously there were set backs with Smith and other targets being sold or loaned to other clubs but ffs the hof was not the most talented player there was so surely there must have been someone out there at lower league level of similar quality that could have been snapped up?

    Holloway is quoted in the press as "fuming" about two of the ref's decisions on Sunday. Why isn't he fuming about the fact that his team did not have one shot at Bournemouth's goal during the second half?
    It's no good him moaning at the ref when his team cannot even manage a shot! I agree with a comment above the best transfer would be a new manager because this guy has lost the plot.

    if Holloway is allowed to spend the clubs money in jan things will prob get worse! more choices, more formations, more mad substitutions, more madness! bearing in mind his buys usually take 3 months to get fit we might get em for the last couple of games. We are becoming a joke and he has to go now, tho i dont think that will happen.

    Just a couple of thoughts regarding the transfer window and maybe a new manager, first if you were of the standard of player that we would want, would you come to us in our position and on the wages that we can afford, and the same goes for another manager.
    All we would get would be the same as he has been wasting money on for the past 11 months and we are in the same position as we were then, any manager that we would like to get knows there is too much to do here, yes we would all be happy if we stay up, but this will be the third time on the trot and our luck will run out sometime.
    AA must also take some of the blame he appointed the last 2 managers and also gave contracts to some iffy players who a drain on the clubs funds too boot, if we avoid the drop then the board need to take a good look at what has been happening over the last 18 months and start to put us back on track for the start of the new season.

        @Peckhamlad: Peckham, not too sure about if that is possible but if they put out the same 11 where possible and played them in the recognised positions then we could have a fighting chance over the remaining 22 games. But saying that if Ollie gave that a try he could still turn the season around.
        We live in hope. we have to we are Millwall.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he goes in for matt smith again, this time to buy. He scored 3 over the weekend,a dangerous player if he can get two wingers who can actually put a cross in without hitting the first defender, putting it down the keepers throat, or finding the opposite corner flag.and GREGGO would love feeding off of his knockdowns. That's one of the reasons our old cart horse up front done so well at Stoke , he had etherington laying up the perfect crosses for him.

    Good I was thinking that yesterday - let's try Nelson and Goodman in the CB positions. I really like the sound of that and most importantly it's got a future in it. Add to that Fred and the lad who played so well at CM who we never saw again and we're onto something promising, when was the last time we could say that? 3 season ago just before the Wood fallout. Afobe in if the rumours are to believed now we need several more players of that sort of quality just survive this season then we clear out all the wasters and build again

    And then knowing IH replace them with more s*** that are being kicked out of other teams
    As far as formation Ollie the best form of defence is attack not get to halfway line and turn around you need to run at the opposition stop f****** about with 10/15 passes and achieving nothing ,a big target man capable of jumping and controlling a ball and lay off balls for Gregory .plus 2decent wingers not what Wev got here ie Martin and Woolford ,and when your rehearsing your next release to the press trying looking in the mirror and asking yourself if I was a supporter would I support this lot including you ?

    As delighted as I am by Sid's first showing, in my opinion it was a lucky throw of the dice by Holloway (Lord knows he rolls enough of them, even he must win ocassionally!). It made no logical sense at all; blooding an untried kid off the back off a 6-1 drubbing. It should be down to the senior centre backs in the squad to step up to the mark. It could have set Nelson back if we were on the end of another hammering against the highest scorers in the league. It smacked of desperation to me and thankfully Sid got him out of the s*** (if a 2-0 defeat is out of the s***!). That's not to mention what it does to the confidence of the likes of Beevers and Webster. You can bet your a*** when we get another tonking, Sid will be the fall guy. Lately, I feel like I've joined the Moonies, it's like everyone has been brainwashed! I think Holloway is a clown. Unfortunately I do agree with some that there doesn't seem a lot we can do about it but hope that somewhere amidst the madness and all the 'options' he stumbles on a solution. I have lost all confidence in the man.

      @Adsy77777: The performance by Sid was all the more creditworthy considering that he had to not only do his own job as a defender but also cover the left back position as the supposed left back (Malone) cannot be classed as a defender, whilst at the same time covering Danny Shittu.
      Start of the second half Wilkinson is replaced by Fuller, so Sid was switched from left sided CB to right back, we went to 3-5-2 formation with Williams at left back ( perhaps IH has noticed that Malone cannot defend) .
      Then Danny Shittu was subbed, Alan Dunne came on at RB and Sid ended up playing as right sided CB, in a reformed back four of Dunne, Nelson,Williams and Malone.
      Did anyone else notice that he was the only Millwall player who ended the match without shiny white shorts.....
      Quite frankly, with the exceptions of Jimmy Abdou and Lee Gregory, he showed the other so called professionals in our side
      a) what level of commitment is ALWAYS expected of a Millwall player
      b) his pride in wearing a Millwall shirt

      After this performance IH has a major problem to deal with......
      If a young kid can show the way to supposed senior players, then does he bring in three/four/five more from the development squad, together with a few new signings in the transfer window
      or
      give the senior 'pros' another chance ??

      For me it is a no brainer, ......for various reasons I would not have Woolford, McDonald, Martin, Malone, anywhere near the squad.......a bad performance or two, I can accept, but making the same mistakes, wrong decisions, lack of effort/bottle game after game is in my view completely unacceptable and they should be shown the door now, plus others that are just sitting around not even making the bench...........get them entirely away from the club......
      then see how we perform...........

      would rather go down fighting than accept what I have been seeing this season

        @eio:
        Nelson was man of the match for me, a different class to the rest. I was amazed to learn he is just eighteen.
        How Bournemouth are top of the Championship is amazing, I thought they were pretty dire and I will be surprised if they are near the top at the end of the season. But when Bournemouth had the ball it did not travel at about the midfield and then get passed back to the keeper, it usually went forward because there was someone up there to pass it to: Millwall’s organisation was a shambles.
        My view is that the current squad may not be great but with the young players involved the squad is good enough to win enough games to stay up - provided they are better organised and the morale is lifted.
        Surely it is time to decide who is going to get a contract and just pay off the remaining salaries of those that will be leaving and send them on gardening leave. Clearing the decks now will not cost any more, they have to be paid to the end of their contracts whatever happens, and will give a clear message to those that stay. Then pick the first eleven and subs and a formation and – suspensions and injuries permitting - stick to them.
        Perhaps the first of the salaries to be paid off could be Mr Holloway?

    The major changes at Bolton and Birmingham were the changes of manager not players and look how they are doing - and next we will see what managerial changes can do at Brighton and Wigan.
    Mr Holloway has lost the plot as a manager and is playing with this club, it is an exercise in vanity. How much damage he will do before he admits this I dread to think.

        Mr Holloway has not been up to the task throughout this season so should have gone months ago - actually he should never have been appointed for he is a serial failure. Certainly he should not be given the chance to waste whatever money is available in January.

    In defence of olly his not had a clean plate to work with like lomas or jackett did, it takes time to work your squads out and get rid of the players clogging up the system, and we are a small club without prospect at present, until we get the area developed we willnt expand...
    But losing to Bournemouth and Norwich is acceptable on paper it's the way you lose that is important, but you can curse tactics players limits or Alan dunne, but we need pace in 7 areas of the pitch, because the ball keeps coming back at us and teams are camped in our half without a worry. I would welcome the hacketts, sharn batts, even dave Martin or grabban to come in and occupy full backs low level players that make a difference with power , pace , height ,not McDonald he adds no height or flair his the man you want at the end to keep the ball for the last 20 mins.

      @Jim28: He kept the same squad because they went on a run that saved us against all odds - if they were good enough on the whole then, and he took the credit, then he should take the blame now. He says 'blame me, not the players' and then waffles on about them not being good enough or fit enough, or not listening to him. That's not taking the blame! He has had enough opportunities to make changes and made enough of his own signings for this to be called 'his' team. If he's such a great coach, why are some of our players going backwards??? Why, after a year of his 'coaching' has he not made it 'his' team? Sorry but the blame lies with Olly.

          @Bush: Thanks Bush. Millwall being Millwall, we will never get all our targets and it's becoming harder as the haves and have nots grow wider apart, but we have always in the past turned up some gems; Alex Rae, Tony Warner, Neil Harris and more recently, Shaun Williams and, hopefully, Lee Gregory. I find it alarming that Olly says 'the hardest thing is finding our market'????? We have a full time scout ffs as well as local scouts. He should be constantly scouring all levels of football, constantly reporting back so we have a list of options for all positions and budgets. WE SHOULD KNOW OUR MARKET. I do think we have some decent players within our squad and coming through, but we also have
          some obvious deficiencies. My personal opinion is that a pragmatic coach, who can get the best out of the decent players we have, with a couple of astute signings, playing a formation and tactics they understand ( I could have the best formation in the world but if I can't teach anyone to play that way in a year something needs to change!) we would be competitive in this league. He is not managing Barcelona!!! As Jzero put it 'this is an exercise in vanity' and he's doing it at our expense.

    I just think Ollie has just realised our existing players he inherited are a crock of s*** & half his signings have been too.
    I will genuinely be amazed if JB puts more than 650k down for signings.

    As I live thousands of miles away I normally only get to see the Lions on tele but generally try to get to one or two matches a year.
    Over the 60 hyears or so I've been a supporter I've seen a few really gifted players, lots of reasonable ones and some that were dreadful. But they've always been a team and by playing together week after week got to know each others strengths and weaknesses and acted accordingly.
    That hasn't happened under the current manager, continually chopping and changing the team and formations does nothing for anyone, except helps the opposition. Think about the team of the late 60s early 70s when many played virtually every game, most of them were reasonable but put them together and look at the results.
    I believe we have the players to get out of this mess, but we have to select the best and stick with them and play them in their best positions. There's no need to select any of the others even if they are out of contract at the end of the season. Bring in some of the youngsters it will do them good and they are the future.
    Then play 442 and stick with it, we don't have the players to mess about with formations or play out of position.
    Finally, to be a bit controversial get rid of Ollie, blow the cost, and get in someone who was an above average Lions player and has done some coaching and wanted the job previously. Who - Gordon Hill - Merlin.

    The Millwall players were once thought good enough to join the club its either playing out of position or low confidence which is making them look bad ...The manager is to blame for this with his crap tactical changes his own personal problems are getting through to the players as well The man is a nightmare and he has to go.....OLLIE LEAVE NOW AND GET MEDICAL HELP , otherwise youll end up in the funny farm

    Holloway get it right in the transfer window.
    You are a lucky man who has a chairman that trusts you (at the moment).
    After 24 games In the championship, 11 managers have been dumped,
    14 managerial changes in total. Some with a better record than you.
    Stop spouting b***** and do the job you promised us all.
    We all know you didn't start the rot, but you sure ain't helped in stopping it.
    For f**** sake, pull your finger out in January, with the outs as well as the in's.

    all the clubs with new managers have picked up whereas we are going backwards, so there is a sobering thought, do we get rid now and hope the team respond to a new guy or stay with ollie and hope he does better in jan transfer market. He has done fk all in the previous ones. We been waiting for a striker all season

    I don't think the board would want to sack another manager and can we truly afford to do it with FFP. This would be additional cost on top of buying transfers in January. I don't rate the manager he's proven he's tactically inept but that's what we are stuck with.

    Chris Wood likely to be put out on loan by Leicester.

    Could he make a return and see us return to the results we previously saw when we had him?

    For those who have forgotten we looked like we had a chance of playoffs and once he left we dropped like a stone!
