Webster calling for "consistency" from Millwall teammates

MILLWALL defender Byron Webster is calling for more “consistency” from his side.

The Lions have the worst home record in Sky Bet League one and are aiming to avoid a fifth successive defeat at SE16 with Rochdale the visitors this weekend.

And Webster is calling for the Lions to me ready to bounce back in what the defender calls a “mental league.”

“It’s about consistency,” Webster said. “My previous club when we got promoted we were unbeaten for five, lost five on the bounce and then won five.

“If we’d won on Saturday it would have taken us up towards the play-offs. It’s so tight it’s a crazy league.

“You look at the Championship and the number of teams that make a late surge into the play-offs and nine times out of ten they’re the ones who go up in the end. So it is massively about consistency.

“Rochdale are up in the play-offs but we’re all the same, anyone can beat anyone.

“You look at Sheffield United, favourites to go up. They're seventh at the moment.

"They lost their opening game of the season, won a couple, then lost and then they drew.

“It’s a mental league, and it’s all about your mentality.”

      @dave666: all about mentality? Think talent and commitment might help

    After tomorrow we can then fully judge where we are against all the pre-season hype - remember everybody saying give it ten games- but it is fair to say it has been mediocre at the very least.

    What worries me is that I cannot see any regular play pattern emerging - are we trying to get it wide and down the flanks, are we playing it short out of defence or thru the midfield or what ? I still have no idea which means when a player comes in do they even know what the game plan is ?

    Do they ever practise set pieces - somebody tell me how many corners we have had per goal or free kicks around the box per goal.

    Also we clearly still don't know our best team - we don't have settled back four, midfield is hit and miss though Thompson and Powell seem to be underplayed for whatever reason whereas Fred, as good as he is, has been overplayed.
    Upfront is the biggest worry - many on this forum expected Morison and Gregory to be banging them in with 20 goals a season each (lol) but only AOB has emerged with any credit.
    Given Harris is still one a big learning curve then if we expect a mid-table finish or thereabouts we wont be disappointed.

    Let's gradually blood some of the youngsters, give the 4-5 games experience at a go and let them learn their trade gradually in readiness for next season. Apparently we have a good bunch coming through who are not far off from being a regular in the first team squad on merit alone.

    The future looks bright but let's have something to cheer about tomorrow- it's only f***ing Rochdale ffs.

      @ohcomeallyefaithful:

      Yep, good post.
      Although I'd rather blood Rochdale than the youngsters.
      I want to see Rochdale run out of the Den, battered, bruised and blooded
      on the end of a six nil Rogering, wishing the were still in L2.

    Rochdale shouldn't even be in the same league as us - tomorrow is must win in my book! We can't continue to get beat at home by these mediocre teams! It's infuriating because we're not a bad side!!

    Its been fifth home defeat but tommorow must be a first home win off the season and besides all that it must be change of tatics,Formation and rotate the player just a little bit. Add Joe Martin LB and Lee Martin LM enough said.

    Here's a light hearted answer to our misery at home:
    Saturday morning take first team players, coaches and back room staff on a magical mystery tour on a coach (with the blinds down and piped in northern sounds and smells) all around the Borough of Southwark lasting a few hours.
    While they're gone paint home room door name out and replace with 'Away Team' . Make it cold, damp with leaky taps and vile smells. Give them a different strip. Put up pictures of mills, whippets and strange northern practices around the place. Make atmosphere generally hostile and unwelcoming.
    Result: 3 points at a canter.
    Followed by evening coach ride along same lines as in morning arriving back at Den by 8.30 pm in time for pies'n'mash or jellied eels.

    This team is still developing and with so many kids I don't think 10 games is enough to judge how the whole season is going. December/January will be a good time to review and then make signings as required

      @glyngo: so many kids ???? Really not that many. I am fed up with this excuse he had all the you gsters I his u21 squad last season. For me he needs to cut out the rubbish comments and set the team up not to lose then the wins will come.Harris is going nowhere he is doing g JB's bidding by keeping us in this league so he can do whatever he wants to do with the club. Personally I am past caring about the home form, save your home game money and watch them away then maybe the poor loves can get a win without the nasty millwall fans saying they are s***. I know what I'd like to do with Em.

    Odds online favour a draw.
    I wouldn't be surprised to see a second hand scoreboard come on for the second half and flash down the wing.

    Last week our CB's got away with very little criticism after virtually gifting 2 free headers from central defence so it's a bit rich coming from him!

    You may laugh, Harris took them to stay in a hotel a few weeks back before a home game to try and make them feel it was an away game

    FACT

    I think Mahlon Romeo and Alfie Pavey should be at First Team subs bench.

    Cummings returns from Injury so does Joe Martin, now is up to PCH and Lee Martin to be either involved or put em subs bench til they prove for speed and fitness to win Millwall shirt.

    Wall must win this one surely the Rochdale players will still be shell shocked when none of the Coronation street actors fluffed (great word) their lines this week in the live episode. They will also be confused that Callum although bashed over the head with a wrench and dead was still breathing.
    Tough nuts these Northerners. They must also wonder how Roy Cropper gets all the birds and how the actors pretend to drink their drinks when there is nothing in their cups. Perhaps they can play the Cornoation Street theme music over the tannoy that will really confuse them - So NH and the team stayed in an hotel for a home game - still lost - now that's confusion no wonder the team don't know if they are coming or going - still Rochdale tomorrow Wigan on Tuesday give the team plenty of hot pot NH and perhaps you could take the team whippet racing tonight and don't forget to let the pidgeons out on Sat morning ere bye gum lad them London lads are there for the taking they don't know if they are coming or going. Ain't been the same since they bonded in Portugal and Ollie is on super bucks on Sky how the mighty Lions have fallen. Oh for a Sads or a Reideeeeeeeeeee or a Kineeeeet or a Moodeeeeee or a Denzel come on NEIL sort it out settled team and three f....g points.
