Report: Millwall 1-4 Norwich City

NORWICH scored four goals in the space of 22 minutes as Millwall suffered a heavy defeat for the second time this week.

The Lions, beaten 3-0 at Middlesbrough on Tuesday, are now eight points adrift of safety after the promotion-chasing Canaries cantered to victory at The Den.

Jonny Howson broke the deadlock in the 38th minute when he skipped past Nicky Bailey's attempted tackle and lashed a shot into the top corner.

Alan Dunne then gifted the Canaries a penalty on the stroke of half time when he bundled over Cameron Jerome, and Gary Hooper converted from the spot.

Wes Hoolahan capitalised on Michael Tonge's error to make it 3-0 and Howson scored his second and Norwich's fourth when he guided in Jerome's pass.

Substitute Lee Gregory grabbed a consolation from the penalty spot after Diego Fabbrini was bundled over in the box but Millwall were booed off.

    Seeing Holloway hiding in the dugout today said it all.

        @kyran_nicholl07: the way I saw it..

        Could have done a hundred other things today, beer garden etc.. But no my heart got the better of me and I went down the den. Cheers done the best part of £100 for what??
        Where were all those "Millwall" that give it this is my seat all gone??
        The whole clubs changed in my eyes .. All apart from the ih formation
        Still there's no wide men. We still have 5/6 in midfield without a winger in sight or two bog guns up front to get onto crosses.
        There bunched up in The middle not running down the line..babies my the ball in and it's been like this for too long. I'm done now for the season I think and I've never give up and in 30 years
        When will ih try to go back to the basics ?? If he don't he might aswell go. Hiding in the dugout won't help either

    Holloway will go now – there’s no way he can survive this. But don’t let him, Ambler, Berylson or any of those other fools still supporting him try to put the blame on us fans for turning on Holloway.

    No other Millwall manager has had the support he's been given. The blame for this fiasco lies squarely with Berylson, Ambler and the rest of the board who appointed yet another duff manager and continued to back him even when it was clear to most intelligent people that he was a dead duck. No doubt that we deserve to go down - and if I didn’t know better, I’d say by their actions some people at the club seem to have almost been willing this to happen.

    We have got to keep Holloway. We're very unlucky with injuries at the moment. He will be a very good manager in league 1 with a new look team with Cowan-Hall, Onyedinma and possibly Marquis coming back.

      I have just listened to his post match interview on BBC and it is obvious he does not have a clue what to do, he has lost the team, their confidence is shot. It is not surprising given the way he drones on when he speaks it would depress anybody.

    It's not just Holloway though is it? He has to shoulder most, if not all the blame. But he's not out there is he- the players have been awful this season, missing chances or tackles, poor at each end of the pitch, lightweight and they seem to let their heads drop too.

    Most of you so called fans are a bunch of mugs. What some done today charging to the dugout idiots. As a professional footballer it is the players to blame. Yea Holloway may pick crap tactics but if you get paid to play you should be able to carry out a task. Maybe if the fans gave a bit of positive attitude the players might play with less pressure. They know if they go a goal Down everyone is on there back. C'mon guys it's Millwall

    The worst disaster i have seen at this club for the way we will be demoted. When a manager decides as he did last season, to put on during a game four forwards, then thats a panic move and he had not been at the club long either. Thats when i did wonder and divi one will hard to get out of,and who will be in charge....him. He will drag us down. Will cost us more than paying him off now. Who want's to play for us in divi one. Could go on and on but so f****** p***** off with this, like someone hanging round your neck and can't get them off..........un...be...lievable.

      An honest comment would be that there are plenty of points available for other teams to gain from playing us.

      Wouldn't mind Wolves getting a win last game if it gets KJ a shot at the playoffs. Be a long time before we get a decent manager like him again plus we will have no need for points by the last game anyway.

    That's my last game untill the luny has gone and don't anyone tell me that it is not the way to support the club by staying away cause I went to my first game when I was 4years old in 1974and have been going ever since through thin and thin. Never has such a bad manager been given so much time to make things go from bad to worse. Maybe if we stayed away then jb and ambler might do the right thing but it just goes to show what a clueless pair they really are. I love Millwall and will always want the best but with me going every week isn't going to keep us up even if we had crowds of 20 thousand with IH in charge we would still go down. The sooner he goes the better. Bloke is a c.unt.

    Pretty much a dead cert to go down now - so we move on now with the REAL rebuild of MFC.
    If Holloway can handle the abuse, I wouldn't mind seeing him given a chance with a clean slate in league 1. If not, then what will be, will be - whatever is best for MFC.
    This will be a proper clean slate - a chance to offload all the loans and use that money to sign a few decent players to help the youngsters coming through.
    MFC has been running a dated system as far as recruitment is concerned, for years - wasting money - when we haven't got money to waste. This is now the chance to get it right and put things in place for years to come.
    It's thinking time now. This has been on the cards for 3 years - KJs team lucky to survive thanks to palace and last season was close as well. The board seems to have a plan, so it's all about the future now. Looking at some of the suggestions on here for next seasons line up makes me feel better - and as a club, the foundations need relaying and we need DEPTH in squad.
    Will be nice seeing less division in the stands as well, (possible with Holloway here? I don't know..) but at least at a team level, where everyone is proud again. Because right now, I'm not proud of this lot and most of the team don't know what it means to wear the shirt IMO. However, the youngsters will, because they've had to WORK for it. COYL.

        @baz2262: I wasn't praising him baz, I suggested he COULD do well in a new setup next year, IF he stays. (different situation entirely) But it's quite possible he won't - so as long as we get someone decent in, so be it.
        If the club was functioning normally with more funds, we would of brought in another winger by now AT LEAST - but the fact is THERE IS NO MONEY LEFT and so we're left with what we have, bunch CMs mostly on loan. No spirit. With FFP up our a#se, we get fined if we spend anymore - or should I say, the amount we need to spend to make any difference.
        So now, it's about correcting the mistakes made over the last few years - which IMO are - neglecting the youth setup. Behind the times in scouting = Too many loans. Plus poor organisation of contracts.
        You add injuries to that list - that's MFC today.

    When i was younger some older wall told me that your gonna need a real strong stomach to support this lot but don't worry its character building ! well they was right about the character building bit but the stomach bit I've never got used to, still feel sick now ! As far as the manager is concerned he's becoming more toxic by the minute and so is our club ! which means any manager with potential to move this club forward would not touch us with a barge pole because we also haven't got a pot to p*** in ! The only way we can compete in this division is with some serious wedge spent on players, and thats not going to happen so 1st division here we come !
