Dunne: Millwall letting fans, manager and chairman down

ALAN Dunne says Millwall's players are letting down the club's fans, chairman and manager with their dire run of results.

Dunne has joined Ian Holloway in issuing an apology after Wednesday's 4-0 loss to Bradford, a result which has prompted chairman John Berylson to refund supporters' tickets.

Speaking to the club's official site, Dunne said: "As players we have a responsibility once we cross that white line to do our jobs and play with pride, commitment and passion for the cause.

"Unfortunately losing Mark Beevers so early in the game and then going a goal behind little more than a minute later was a big blow, but that does not in any way excuse our performance over the entire 90 minutes.

"On behalf of the players I would like to extend the apology to supporters because they deserve a lot more than what we are offering up at the moment.

"We understand the frustration and hurt in the stands and it is about time we put things right.

"The manager and his coaching staff have been excellent with us and done all they can to take us forward.

"We are letting the fans down at the moment, as well as the manager and the chairman, and it is time to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and man up.

"Last season we managed to pull ourselves out of danger when it looked like all hope was lost and we are going to have to do the same this time around.

"Luckily we have more time to make things better but that will only be to our benefit if we start improving now."

      @NICKOLA: Wind you neck in Nick that's a disgraceful thing to say of a player who's a fan of the club and wears the captains arm band. Alan Dunne might not be the most gifted player to have graced the field of play but he deserves better than that sort of b******* from so called fans. He is passionate about our football club and unlike the others genuinely cares. I think you owe the man an apology, especially as you didn't even go to the game.

    The minimum expectation at this football club is pride in the shirt and 100% commitment, neither of these have been evident in recent weeks!

      @horseworrier: The only people who give this club 100% are us the supporters, watching week after week this poor excuses for a football team, as has been said they keep trotting out these "official" sound bites which we are totally feed up with.

      Either put it right on Saturday or start looking forward to a few P45 being dished out in the very near future, if anyone takes on this job once again it is going to be a big one and will take time, but this seems to happen every 5 or 6 years for some reason the board have never learned.

    Dunne, you have a cheek. You are one of the worst performers out there. You are not Championshi standard. You should not be captain. Any decent captain would be able to geet teh team up for last night's game. You are part of teh problem

    Please do us all a favour if you have any real self respect and dignity left get your coat and do one as you are a massive part of the problem , Thanks for all you have done in previous seasons for our club but you have now overstayed your welcome and are putting self interests before the interest of Millwall .
    As for the fans getting their ticket money refunded by the club that should be the very least that happens in my eyes maybe the players can chip in and refund them their travel expenses that im sure would show them just how sorry you all are .

    All of these apologies mean absolutely nothing. Words, Game after game after game. Sickening thing is, at the end of the month all of them are still being paid their wages and they are all happily taking it. If it were you or me at work we would have been out of the door. "We understand the hurt etc" No you don't, if you did you would do something about it, but you don't because you and the others are not capable of doing it. Rant over see you Saturday.

    Always sorry after every game. At what stage will the apologies no longer be required? Once we're in league 1. Is that when we'll finally put a run of decent results together? Because at the moment I'm not seeing it. I'm just hearing it. And i'm tired of hearing, it's time we started seeing. Prove what you say. We're Millwall fans not masochists and you of all people Alan should know that.

    You mean well but unfortunatly you don't have the ability to deliver on the pitch.Next time you want to issue an apology just mumble something to Holloway and Ambler and they will accept on all the supporters behalf,just like they did with Fuller.

    lets not forget, even if we are relegated, we have just let in 7 goals in 2 games against a team that are 5th in league 1, 15 points behind the top 2!!!!! so what hope with this squad anyway? but IMO holloway is the main problem with his chopping and changing players and formations.

    Seeing as the club seem unwilling or unable to do anything about our situation I have been spreading the rumour the Holloway has drawn loads of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad and that Dunney has been constantly looking at them and laughing his head off.

    Thought Dunney gone as a player start of last season. But don't think he deserves abuse he gets on this site. Think he's always given 100%. He "said" this to official site - it's his job, what do we expect him to say - or rather press officer to put in his mouth? (Actually, don't answer that last question!!) Not his fault he's captain either, nor that he's picked to play. I didn't fancy Holloway when he started and said so. The streak at the end of last season seems to have been a blip. I just see no strategy for the team or the club. And Holloway does choose what he gets to say - and it's getting worse. Not sure what financial cost of him going now would be. And not sure who'd come to us. It is looking desperate. Only hope I can see - new recruits turn out to be better than I fear. Maybe couple of younger guys like Sid and Jack come in for a run and develop and learn. And a few teams near our end hit desperate runs like ours. Damn like they say it's not the despair that kills you it's the hope!! But got to believe. Ipswich looking pretty flat!! COYL.

    Not bothered how many dislikes I get for this was at the game last night and we were doomed from the beginning fair play to jb and fair play to dunney players don't have to say sorry so fair play to him us lot getting on the managers back or players back ain't gonna make our situation any better we ain't been a decent side for the last couple off years in my view stick with Ollie think he's made a couple of decent signings and more to come hopefully yeah we will probably go down but I think we will go down either way if he stays or goes get this season out the way get rid off the dead wood in the summer and build for next season and if we have a miracle we will still be in the championship so lets keep backing the boys after all we are millwall and no one likes us

      @peterjames11: Actually I agree with you Peter. Was there too and it was ripe for a Bradford win. Their crowd was up for it and pitch was cutting up; their team clearly wanted it more. The key moment was Beevers' red card as it was hard to see how we could hold out for the whole game; he should be asking himself questions today. It was a poor performance but these have featured lots of times over the years. We'll have the Hof, Cummings and Harding for Saturday and then Williams available for the following game. We've got to hope that the full backs will stabilise the back four - can't see why Nelson was left out for last night's game. Badly need a decent centre half to play with him. Ollie - can't see him going either way so it'll be for him to continue with the clearout which he has made a start with. All is not lost yet; I thought we were dead and buried last season but it needs the right selection - and most importantly a bit of confidence.

    Saracen ur dead right end off the day ollie is clearing out the s*** that was left to him and to be fair he has made some bad decisions team selection wise but most off our players don't deserve to pull on the lions shirt I believe that come the summer if we are still in the championship fantastic if not onwards and upwards then judge ollie once he's cleared out everyone he wants to then it's he's team and then if we are as we are now he's gotta go but until then I'm prepared to stick with him
