    Biggest win 2-0 and that's only because we got a penalty in the last minute.

      Doesn't make good reading that, in fact all of it is awful.

      If and when Ollie feels the need to say he didn't have enough time or tries to blame us the fans (read today his comments after the Norwich defeat to that effect are why they sacked him!) a print out of this can be handed over to him. Might shut him up!

        @Jim28: Nice of you to personally mention me Jim :)
        I don't think anybody can defend his record at the club.

        What I will thank Holloway for is putting more emphasis on bringing the youth through (Millwall born & bred type players) which previous managers have seriously lacked over the past 6+ years and thank him for changing the way our club, as a whole including the youth, plays football... on the floor and none of this sh** hoof ball which we used to play under the last 2 managers.

        I'd like the next full-time manager, whether that be Harris or someone else, to play proper football and keep giving youth a go!!

          @Bradders: i knew you couldn't resist a challenge..personnaly if it was viable i would of kept him to work we the lads...cos the structure he began will probably now be wasted(hope not)..as for the way we were playing it was either 8 passes to many in mid or none at all (a lot of hoofing as you put it).so i'am not sorry to see that go

          @Bradders: Hey, why let facts get in the way of personal opinion. You keep on with this nonsense about Holloway and his 'youth policy'. Most of us focussed on Mr Holloway and his losing games policy. Worst manager in our history and unlikely to be matched in a very long time.

            @lion.ie:What those facts hide (as awful as they are) was his non-stop bullsh*t and the personality-cult surrounding the man.

            The truth is the football was awful under Holloway. We never bossed the opposition, there was no exciting or attacking football, tactics were all over the place and the standard of players brought in was atrocious. I'd often come away from games despairing at how we'd played, only to read feedback from fans delighted with how Holloway was developing our style of play and trying to revolutionise the club from top to bottom. He'd replace the 'deadwood' players with journeymen has-beens and people would be really excited. How did he fool so many people and what did he do to deserve their blind loyalty? The only comparison I can make is the many Nazi’s still blindly believing Hitler could win the war, even with the Soviets on the outskirts of Berlin.

        @Jim28: can we sack the majority of the players too?

        Three supposedly good managers could not motivate these wage thieves?

          @wappinglion: That's a good point. I'd like to see only U21. The good new loan players should play with the kids. I want to see young players looking up to Harris as a model and leader.

    He should have walked in January - His record would have looked better,
    in fact he has helped destroy his own CV....lol...
    But then again he will be walking around with a large wedge in his back pocket,
    certainly enough to buy his own Circus.
    What a disaster of a period for Millwall, huge payout and not to
    mention wasted money on an army of OAP loans.
    But never mind we will always turn up, that's what we do,
    we are used to it all now.

    We could only last 35 minutes before we conceded a goal on average, I think that says it all, we were chasing the game for 2 thirds of the game, but all the stats show what a poor manager he was for us, so all in all we are well rid of him.

    There is a lot of talk of Holloways' plans/stucture for the club (mostly from his own mouth).Apart from spending money on training pitches we don't own and buying an ice bath (which doesn't seem to have done much good!) is there any concrete evidence of these improvements?I am genuinely asking,as i cannot take the words of the marbleless one at face value.

    Those stats are really shocking. I am sure Holloway will find himself another job though, on the basis of his success at Blackpool. What people forget is him walking out on Plymouth and having a nightmare at Leicester. I know nearly all of us were delighted when he came in but with the benefit of hindsight maybe a bit more weight should have been given to his sacking by Palace, which was pretty remarkable considering he had got them promoted. It makes you wonder if club chairmen really speak to each other or whether Palace were quite happy to give him a better reference than he deserved. Whatever, he clearly lost the dressing room and the plot with us as well. I know a few have said he'll get a job in the media but, really? I can't think of BBC or ITV wanting to employ a loose cannon like him. Maybe he will appeal to TalkSport but I expect some other mugs will hire him as a manager.

    All those stats mean nothing,we all knew what was wrong so what is the point in all this analysing stuff that doesn't matter. I want to know what our genius of a board are thinking of as a replacement and what strategy we have in place to get out of league one cause it isn't going to be easy.

    How big could that Gregory penalty against Norwich be? It only meant something to one person, and that was Gregory himself, well taken and with getting that under his belt and now bomber in charge, are we now going to see the real Gregory that he was talked up to be? Bomber came from Cambridge City so this may well hold the key for that glimmer of hope we have.

    None of this needed to happen if Holloway's career stats had been considered when he was appointed rather than his image. His Millwall win statistics are in line with his overall career (26%) . He is, and always has been, a useless, self serving manager.
    This would have been obvious to anyone that could be bothered to look up his career history. The question is why it was not obvious to whoever appointed him: Millwall needed a football manager not a media clown.

        @lion.ie: remember it well you kicked off with all the IH fans what done it for me was about 4 games in when he put four strikers up front I looked at my mate & we both said he don't no what he's doing. Down hill after that.

          @block 28: It would be interesting if Aldo republished the comments from when he was appointed. The majority of fans seemed happy, but it wasn't 95% of supporters as some have suggested. Quite a few of us pointed out our big concerns about his poor record and state of mind. You have to ask some major questions of the club officials who decided to appoint him.
