Report: Bradford City 4-0 Millwall

MILLWALL hit rock bottom on Wednesday night as they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Bradford City in a third-round replay.

The League One outfit rammed home their numerical advantage after Mark Beevers' senseless sending off in the sixth minute and were 3-0 up before half time.

Beevers was shown a straight red card for pulling back James Hanson as he ran through on goal and the striker headed in the first goal soon after.

Jon Stead squeezed in a low shot to make it 2-0 before Filipe Morais' cross was converted on the volley by Andy Halliday for Bradford's third goal.

Billy Knott, who scored twice at The Den in the original tie, then stabbed home from close range in the 57th minute after Millwall failed to clear their lines.

Substitute Francis Zoko hit the post and had a glancing header saved by David Forde as the hosts threatened to add to their total and the Lions simply capitulated.

It was an utterly embarrassing evening for Ian Holloway's side, whose season does not get any easier with the visit to The Den of third-placed Ipswich to come on Saturday.

    Down to 10 men or not, 3-0 at half time and a 4-0 thrashing just isn't even remotely excusable. I've always said Ollie will turn it around given the time but that performance says it all to me, we are shagged no matter whether he stays or goes. Ouch.

      @millwallchris74: IH has turned things around,he has turned it from bad to worse. Cant think of another club that would keep faith in such a poor performing manager.

    If he stays he will have no credibility, I don't care if it's the players out of contract, he lined up with three at the back and got the usual.
    Demo Saturday'?

    Hopefully tonight will have opened the eyes of anyone who still couldn't see what a disasterous manager Holloway has been for us. If he won't walk like he did at Palace. then the club has to find a way to pay him off. No more time for heads in the sand. Berylson and Ambler got us into this mess with another awful appointment - if they have the clubs interests at heart, they're going to have to act quickly to rectify it.

    We're relegated. I really would play the kids for the rest of the season, it'll toughen them up and prepare them for Lge 1 next season when they'll be all we've got. Holloway should walk for these increasingly regular disgraces but you wonder whether anyone out there could do anything with this lot. It's like watching 11 Rob Hulses at the minute, none of them want to play for Millwall (and nor do they).

    I know there's a lot of people who believe in IH and think we should stick with him because of his vision for the club, but how much more convincing do people need that we will be relegated probably with or without him now. His tactics, formations, selections, rotations and training techniques are totally inept. Do not believe his excuses or rants about passion or belief. He chooses players who are simply not good enough or show no passion for our shirt, and the few players that are good are stifled by lunatic tactics and a lack of consistency. I was hoping he would be gone after tonight but it seems he is here to stay. Our club will be slowly destroyed by that madman. Please people, no more sympathetic posts giving him more time. Read between the lies and ego and see him for what he is. I want my Millwall back. IH must go!

    Holloway on his Blackpool players after the 4-1 defeat by his future employers Crystal Palace, in October 2009.
    "I am more than happy [at Blackpool] and I am afraid the chairman will need a hell of a tub of cream to get rid of me - I'm like a bad rash and not easily curable."

    Ive said for ages that IH looks clueless,not just his crazy sayings and stupid comments but the way he has set out teams with the players at his disposal. Its been a year since he took over and we have not improved one bit but in my eyes got worse. Enough is enough. Get him gone now. I dont care if ronald mcdonald takes over,its just not working with him in charge.

    Pick the best team available, if they not available then f***** well sort them out. Stop all the talk n lame excuses Ollie, it's a shambles. Of course supporters are losing patience, team selection is like a lottery and if the players arnt fit for selection then the buck stops with you. It's not a witch hunt but for f*** sake, who evers not up for the challenge get out of the joint. It a privilege to serve not some god given right. Wake up!!!

    Squad needs organising,discipline and a leader who commands respect and is no joke figure. George Graham. Even with him being out of the game for so long he would make IH look like the amateur he really is.

    What a disgrace . Hollloway and the players wasnt motivated by a trip to Chelsea for the winners of this game . He has to go ! Embaressment none of them players are fit to wear the shirt . I feel for the 600 who went up there . This is Rock bottom , how can he be trusted to sign new players n get us out of this mess when he has been going on about scouting and searching for new players for the last month or so and then just asks Nigel Gibbs who he would sign . The geezer is clueless he believes he's own hype , It's been a year and he doesn't have the slightest clue what he's best 11 is or what formation to play

    'The fans deserve better, say Dunne'. Yes, they do indeed deserve better. You have a right cheek Dunne to say this. You are one of the biggest flops EVER as Millwall captain.
