Millwall trio doubtful for crunch clash against Rotherham

MARTYN Woolford, Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Stefan Maierhofer are doubtful for Millwall's crunch clash with Rotherham on Saturday.

Woolford was forced off against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek with heavily bruised ribs and he is currently unable to train.

A full-blooded tackle during the defeat to the Owls has left Taylor-Fletcher with a swollen foot and he could also miss the trip to South Yorkshire.

Stefan Maierhofer has a tight quad and may not be risked either.

      @NICKOLA: Not such a bad idea. He's the only player I can remember scoring from a corner in recent times.

      @NICKOLA: That's a good idea Nic he's a far better header of the ball than most of our current forwards and more likely to get a shot on target from 20 yards. Nic for manager! ⚽️

    Doesn't even matter anymore does it? The future is the depressingly awful League One which the Board seem more than happy with. The only shining light is maybe Harris will be be given a shot at management while we down there and plays all our youngsters for the entire season. Looks we due another bout of relegation/promotion at this rate...

    GARY Taylor-Fletcher is confident that Millwall will stay up and says he can play a big part in keeping the Lions in the Championship.
    That "big part" does not include Saturday then.

      @kenfromtheden: Presumably he wrote that article yesterday and nobody pointed out to him that the thing on the end of his leg was a bit on the swollen side and he would not be able to play and do his big part. Obviously the article was written by Holloway and he did not notice the injury either. Must stop being so cynical.

    So what. Doesn't matter who's missing anymore. IH could sign the Barcelona squad on loan and still not get a result at Rotherham. He'd play Messi as a defensive midfielder with Suarez at left back. Doesn't matter who's there. This article is just the excuses being made in readiness for another defeat. I've given up tbh.

    So if (and a big if) we get out the bottom 3, go on a good run and finish mid table.
    Would most fans still want Ollie out?
    Personally, I've seen enough of him to think he is clueless and if the above did happen I think I'd still like to see him go.

      @brooker: Most definitely Brooker, to many mistakes & excuses this season, were not in the bottom 3 because of the odd mistake, were down there because of our performances since last August. That was or should have been a fresh start for us , a time when Ollie went to work , got rid of the cr*p & we moved forward. One thing I will leave for thought our last 9 nine games we went unbeaten, two thirds of those games were against teams that really weren't playing for anything ie weren't going down & weren't going up , this season were not going to be so lucky if you look as our fixture list, last home game derby & last game away to wolves . So Ollie best start getting some points on the board quick

    It's a bad sign, whenever a club is in dire trouble, certain players drop out with injure as they do not wish to be part of a bad team. Not that these three will make that much difference, it is a good excuse for the manager to change the side (Such as it is) once more.

      @block 28: I think your formation is spot on, however I would play Nelson at right back, because however willing Jimmy is ( always plays his heart out) He gives me nightmares defensively and going forward he cannot cross the ball or find the right pass.....plus he is always going to ground.

    Another few injuries to get excited about for the next couple of games! Quite funny really with the GTF interview just before this one!
    We've been getting reports like this from the very start of the season - key players out in handfuls at a time. I didn't think it could ever get as bad as last season, but it looks like it could be worse...?!
    Which brings me to my point - it depresses me when a lot of fans on here don't take any of this information into account. How the f##k can we expect to be getting results when our team is so depleted in certain areas?? This now leaves us with zero wingers... And back to the original selection of strikers before the january overhaul... The problem we had before hasn't changed -we still need a decent striker and bare minimum 2 wingers in the team.. Now they're injured, it seems like some fans have forgotten this fact and just do the easy thing... BLAME THE MANAGER.
    I blame him for that sub the other night - bad move. Should've made like for like subs no doubt. However, I understand why he did it - to get us back in the game - but Gung ho isn't always best and he admitted he was wrong.
    What I don't blame Ollie for is groups of players being injured that are key to us getting results.
    You know what other teams in the championship do when players are injured? Replace them with the bloke on the bench that plays the same position. Why? Because other teams have DEPTH IN SQUAD, we don't. So players are played out of position.
    There is a timeline of events that has led us to where we are, some of the problems going back to Jacketts time.

    P.s. Question - If the players that Ollie brought in, in january, weren't injured, do you think we would be where we are?? I honestly don't think we would.
    Most fans on here agreed that we needed an overhaul - IH did this and it was looking promising. To now put the ENTIRE blame on him just isn't right.

      @Luke ColdBlow10: Luke you rightly say his substitution should have been like for like,what you do not mention is that he messed up against huddfield as well,also i could name you many times going back to Reading at home last season when he took beavers off for a silly tactical reason after we went 1-0 down to a bywater error when in fact we were as good if not better than reading.
      Sorry luke but there is no way i can defend this man,as im sorry to say in IH mind its all about IH,his ego is to big.
      Also i was all for him coming to millwall,but i am afraid he has lost my support and that is coming from a man who supported Lomas to the hilt and got the tag of powderpuff 1.
      Yes i admit we are playing some decent football under his management ,but then he tinker's for no apparent reason and mess's thing's up on a regular basis.

        @jim1222: IH makes mistakes period. I can't argue with that. But I think a lot of the of time his decisions are influenced by things that are out of his control, (particularly in choosing the starting line up) this is my point.
        I posted on here a while back before the january clear out, that yes, IH isn't a MASTER tactician, but where his strength is, is using his gob and getting players in. I felt the players that were brought in could do a job for us and a lot of people on here were as hopeful as I was. Now near enough all of them are injured and the same problem is still there. Martin, Woolford and Paris out = no width. But that's ok, Abdou and Harding can put a cross in!
        Now relying on Fuller, Gregory and O'brien to get goals, who EVERYBODY on here agreed couldn't be fully relied upon to keep us up. I'd say these are pretty fundamental flaws and in this division, that is so tight, you can't expect to climb the table with problems like this.
        This is just ONE area where we're flawed as a club as well! Some of the comments Bradders made on here yesterday were spot on as well, about the scouting system etc.
        People might say Ollies signings are s##t, ok, who on here had the budget in front of em? Or the list of players that would realistically come here? No one - yet so many feel they could've done a better job it seems...?

        All I'm saying Jim, is to put the blame entirely on Holloway is not right - partly to blame yes, of course - but there are massive issues here that effect the way he does his job and I honestly
        think ANY manager would have their work cut out for them.

    Am I the only one that smells some type of conspiracy here? I genuinely believe that JB has lost total confidence in his Millwall pet project. The re-gen thing is up in smoke and I think he must now realise any dreams of Millwall playing in the prem anytime soon are a pipe dream. That being the case, wouldn't he see us as better off in Division 1 ? Think about it, a lower wage bill accompanied by bigger crowds is an attractive proposition . Our average crowd as a challenging first division side would be in the region of 12,000 as opposed to the 9 or 10,000 (on a good day) that we get at the moment. We could also play a team of Millwall youngsters who've already had experience of that level plus a few who already have championship experience. Fred, Powell, the Tottenham keeper, O'brien, Nelson and Yes, Marquis would all be good players at that level and cost the club nothing in wages. Add to this a few good honest pros (Harding, Jimmi and even Alan Dunn) and we have the basis of a good side in the first division. It would remind a little potentialy of the Mark Magee side (Ifill, Neal, Harris, Cahil and Read plus players like Moody and Nethercott steadyin the ship). On paper it seems like a good plan, but how do you get that past the supporters who wouldn't accept that plan in a million years. I know, emply a fool as manager, confuse the players with ridiculous formations and if all else fails keep your potential match winners off the pitch injured. By the way, I also think that Kennedy was shot by the CIA and that the moon landing was staged.

      @Menorca Millwall: bit of light relief away from the shambles on the pitch, - I've met and interviewed in the early 90's - some of the people who were in Dealey Plaza when JFK was assassinated (including Jean Hill the lady in red, Beverley Oliver, Ed Hoffman and his wife with a sign language expert obviously). Also met Marina Oswald and her daughter Rachel. LBJ with rogue elements of CIA def involved. I was one of several guest speakers at Symposium in Dallas on the subject but won't bore you further otherwise I'd never stop.....and 82wall would hate me even more that he does already :) As for moon landing no f****** idea........

    I decided I needed to cheer myself up, so have spent the afternoon watching a video of our FA Cup Semi Final win at Old Trafford , and DVD of our League One play off semi finals and win at Wembley. It brought a tear to my eye to see our REAL Millwall giving their all, and all the supporters so happy, singing rocking all over the world. HAPPY DAYS. Lets hope we can get those times back again one day. COME ON YOU LIONS . We will love you to the end.

    If you saw these three players coming towards you on a dark night you may just cross the road they are all lumps , but we seem to have an uncanny knack of buying players that are oh so fragile maybe that's what you get when you go shopping in the bargain basement I know he has backed our club but I don't think JB has shown any real ambition in the transfer market to be honest .
    The most expensive thing our club has ever bought is Olly how f****** ironic is that

    So ollie, who's to blame for our injury problems this season ? Is it the boots these ponces play in, the reserve team players you sign, the ridiculously strict individual training programme you've implemented, the fat out of shape old has beens you've signed, the so called new state of the art pitches you got laid pre season, all the above or have you got an underlying hatred for us that you've made it your goal to be the man that puts the final nail in the MFC coffin.

    I listened to Ambler on Lions Live and it seemed to me Olklies on borrowed time ...it was a decision at Xmas to keep Ollie and sack the players instead giving him money for the new team to change results ....its not going to plan so far....now the talk is getting a Director of football doing the buying and having a coach to coach only....Ollie is no coach......so for the first time I feel a bit sorry for the carrot cruncher....hes too old fashioned for the new way which is whats happening at Brentford with their manager....thats my interpretation of what AA said.....Berylson is not a happy bunny

    Out of interest does anyone know the details of Ollies contract?
    Length and salary and can work out how much we would have to pay him off?

    If it costs less than loss of revenue to League 1 then its a no brainer.
    They'll probably still charge the same amount to watch a lesser quality game, but being a winning team will entice fans to watch. so may end up making more on matchdays. but tv revenue will surely go down.
