Report: Ipswich Town 3-0 Millwall

A DISASTROUS 20-minute spell saw Millwall suffer a 3-0 loss at Ipswich Town.

Own goals from Shane Lowry and Mark Beevers came either side of Tommy Smith's header as the Lions capitulated in the second half at Portman Road.

Loan signing Shaun Derry was handed a start in his first game alongside Nicky Bailey in central midfield, whilst right-back Jack Smith, who impressed against AFC Wimbledon in midweek, held onto the right-back berth.



Stephen Bywater had to be alert in the 5th minute to smother the ball at the feet of David McGoldrick, who had wrested his way goal-side of Beevers but failed to go around the Millwall goalkeeper.

At the other end, Bailey and Derry combined well to create an opening for Richard Chaplow, but he sliced well wide. Beevers' cross was then touched off by Morison to Keogh, whose shot was blocked.

McGoldrick went close again in the 17th minute when he headed a yard wide from Aaron Cresswell's free-kick, before Luke Chambers powered a header inches over from Carlos Edwards' corner.



Lions stopper Bywater was by far the busier of the two 'keepers and he was at full stretch shortly before half-time to palm McGoldrick's shot from a tight angle away from danger.

Millwall made a bright start to the second half and nearly took the lead when Chaplow got on the end of Derry's cross but headed wide from less than six yards.

In the 58th minute, James Henry nutmegged Cresswell and flashed a dangerous ball across the face of goal that Morison nearly turned it at the back post.

But the Lions fell behind in unfortunate circumstances moments later when Bywater parried Cresswell's cross against Lowry, who diverted the ball into his own net.

And it was 2-0 when Smith out-jumped Danny Shittu to head in Paul Anderson's free-kick from the right flank.

A third Ipswich goal was not long in coming and, for the second time in the match, it came via a Millwall player as Anderson's cross deflected in off Beevers.

The visitors had a golden chance to pull one back in the 85th minute but Henry blazed over an open goal with 'keeper Scott Loach lying helplessly on the ground.

    Disappointing, lets hope Lomas has a few more changes up his sleeve and JB doesn't loose confidence in his investment. Still, all said and done, very early doors.

        Now you can see why Leeds were happy to loan him out.

    Not surprised, did see this coming. Let's get it straight, it's only two games in, I get that. But you want so set a benchmark for the season early on, we haven't a goal let alone a point. Signing players who aren't fit (despite having trained for 4 weeks) and playing decent players out of position. Where do we expect to go when we have such a poor strike force. Everyone was bigging it up but deep down I knew it was average at best. Moro does not care, Keogh has lost whatever he had, Easter crap + McDonald seemingly infinitely unfit. Then we have a decent player in Chaplow and what do we do? Do what KJ did with N'Guessan, Keogh, J. Smith, St. Ledger, Lowry, Easter, Feeney. So embarrassing to be a Millwall supporter these days.

    Wasn't there so really don't know what went on. Will wait to hear from others and comments from Lomas. Either way I'm off to have a few beers. My wife doesn't understand why it's so important and asked me to quantify what it means to lose. So I said imagine you've got a flat tyre first thing in the morning-and then imagine that all four are flat.

    We need to get some cash for Henry, Lowry, Keogh, DNG, Woolford, Wright. The last two for nothing just to get them off the wage bill. Whilst we need a RB we need to pay big money for a decent proven striker, after all the best form of defence is attack. We must win our next game.

    Only from listening to Lion Player; sounds like Derry and Bailey played well and that the score line was a bit flattering - those are the positives!!. I think Keogh will be making way in the strarting eleven, as will Lowry and possibly Shittu (I think we miss Robbo) next week. Morison needs a goal. Still, early days!!!!

      @Adsy77777: Hi Adsy my blood pressure is still up, I think Keogh and Henry should both go, they may have been good once upon a time but how many chances can you go on giving. Keogh needs to be elsewhere perhaps where ever his head is at the moment because it sure isn't with us. And I have already vented my feelings on Henry. Just going to have lie down in a dark room and see if that helps. You never know it may all have been a bad dream. Night Night!

        @Sealion: I agree with you mate - the only reason I can see that they are getting game time at the moment is to trick someone into buying them!!!!!! Still, SL saw the same as most of us in regards of JA and JW. From what I've seen and heard, neither of them should start next week IMO. Night night Sealion.

    Just read the report above and it seems like we were unlucky! BBC final score commentator "Millwall can't argue against the 0 part of the score line", so who has the rose tinted glasses?

    The bottom line is as things stand (and as I said this time last year) we are looking for 3 worse teams than us this season, the common theme is the Millwall 0 part. What kept us up was the goals against column not the goals for column. Of all the signings we have made only 2 are strikers and 1 of those is a season long loan. SL has got until the end of this month to get some strikers in. Even if the two new strikers hit it off, we need cover otherwise its down to Easter (still s*** in my opinion) DNG who wants a second chance but will f*** off to anyone who offers a decent deal, and Keogh 1 gimme goal in 19 games. SL try to see the wood (not Chris) for the trees....

      @SingleWhiteLion: DNG cannot be any worse than what we have now and he works well with Easter, its getting the right combination up front. i was not at the game so comments are subjective but it seems Morison is not pulling his weight yet, he needs a goal and someone beside him he can work with . The back four seem to be taking all the pressure and it need to be at the other end on the opponents defence. Yes another striker is essential.

    Very poor result, but not really suprised. I think Ipswich will be in the mix. McCarthy has a good track record in this league. I hope it is a matter of the players getting to gel, but all too often that is smoking mirrors to cover up bigger problems. Perhaps next week we ought to try Harford and Bomber up front or Lowry and Beevors as they are so far our only two with league goals to their name. Got my ticket for Huddersfield. Hope we get it right.

    No more loans for heavens sake, it does not work unless they are young and ambitious. Get Trotter fit to give some imagination in midfield and sharpen up the forward line, I appreciate the need to be patient and give the team time, but if they start to get in a rut it will be hard to get out of it.

    I was really looking forward to this season, I wasn't one that was getting unrealistic about play offs etc but at least I thought we might stop being toothless pushovers, but how wrong was I ? The commentators on the lions player said we were unlucky, well we are unlucky every f****** week according to someone, we should be used to it by now. Henry hasn,t got a clue if he was as good as he likes to think he is we would be laughing, he could not score if you put the ball on the goal line and gave him a free shot he would still put it over. Apart from Chaplow and Bailey, when are our new signings going to put in a full shift or indeed any kind of shift. What use is McD and who the f*** is Lee (I can't even remember the rest of his name because he has been so anonymous .
    We should have signed Shorey while we had the chance because after watching this s*** he has probably
    gone off to sign for someone better like Dagenham and Redbridge. I bet Shaun Derry is glad he is only stuck here for a month.
    I expect to take a lot of stick for this post but I don't care its what I am feeling right now and I have to get it off my chest.

    No goals despite signing three forwards and to make it worse Darius Henderson scores the winner for Forest. Still, it can get worse - there's still Barnsley below us. Mind you, they're the only ones below us. Perhaps SL should get in touch with Zola and find out how you can lose your top scorer of last season but still score 10 goals in two games!

      Lowry's best position is centre half. We'll have 4 vying for 2 spots then.
      Need 2 new full backs etc.etc.
      The good news is that according to Lomas, we're going to be shipping a few out in order to get some in. Not before time and get a bloody move on with that please !!
      Disjointed team presently-Yes, absolutely. Not just the new signings waiting to gel but it looks like we've caught Jacketttitis-Playing a centre half at left back, Jack Smith at right back etc.etc.
      The fact that we've go to sell before buying means the budget's up. It's time to be ruthless and have a major clearout.

    On paper a far better squad than last year - and many of you have been creaming your pants over it on here. One fool even forecast 8 - 0 v Yeovil (albeit jokingly) and you were all swept away on a tide of euphoria, save for one or two more sensible souls. Lomas is floundering already, he talks a good game much like Spackman but right now looks out of his depth without a Scooby what his best line up is. Seen all tis before with managers (especially the younger ones) who can talk the talk but are unable to deliver. All the hallmarks of a manager that will fail and I sincerely hope that I'm wrong. Where is all the fire, passion and commitment and good football he was bringing to the club. I cannot find a single positive to take from either of the games we have played and less from the Wimbledon game in the week. That's a big worry for me.

      @jago77: I agree completely about your point that it is the same for all the teams, so why keep making excuses. When KJ left, the board said there was no rush to get his replacement - perhaps if they'd shown more urgency in appointing SL we would be further down the road than we are now. How much of a start do we think we can give teams like Watford??

        @Profiler4: I'm still confident of mid table , possibly 8th if our central midfield can stay fit, think Bailey and Trotter will be a good pairing , with Chaplow thrown in there somewhere, but as for giving teams like Watford a head start we should keep our fingers crossed they go full steam ahead and keep taking the points of the mid table and relegation contenders and do us a favour. It hurts to say it but we are still a way behind contending for the top spots, after supporting millwall for 36 years and being named after Gordon Jago, our manager the year I was born (thank f*** my old man chose Jago and not Gordon) I still live and breath millwall.... COYL show some passion.

        @SingleWhiteLion: of course Steve Morrison is the better player on his day, even on an off day if the truth be told...but Grabbans got 3 goals in 2 games for bournmouth and a couple have been quite tasty. My point is Grabban is showing a bit of passion and having a go (even though he is a useless c***) would like to see the same from Morrison

    I think most would agree that from the players we have bought we should have more quality in the squad than last year. SL has been as good as his word and everyone has started with a clean slate. I hope that he has seen for himself what we could have told him - some of the old guard are just not up to it. SL has been handed a budget, boosted by last seasons cup run and brought in, on paper at least, some very good players who have excited most of us. What we haven't seen him do is wheel and deal, get a few out and get a few in. IMO, we need a couple of specialist full backs and a productive winger (maybe Lee Martin will improve things when he's fit). I remember when Andros Townsend came in on loan and showed us what a proper winger is like. Keep the faith lads - it's not time to panic - yet!!!! I still think that we will have a decent season - but then I am on tablets!!!!!!

    You'll find that if a club actually spends money on a forward, not a shitty free transfer, he will get goals for you. Vaughn £1m, Davies 500k, Holt 2m, Wood 2m, Rhodes, Jutkiewicz and believe me there are plenty more. Buying a player instills confidence and if he is well supplied, which Vaughn isn't yet still gets goals, he will do well. I'm not saying we should have gone for any of the above but the facts don't lie. Morison will be outscored by Vaughn yet Morison is the better player. Fed up with loan after loan, free transfer after free transfer. Get rid of the dead wood sharpish and spend some money ffs.

      @harryfabian: Morison left us to become a Premiership player but ended up back in the championship with a team that is no better than us and who are prepared to loan him out for the whole season. Isn't that telling us something??

    i was there,what an inept perfomance this was, morrison looked lazy and disinterested, didn't win a header all day,that said the service to the front men was poor,just hit it forward and hope,no passing no lay offs no quality. henry was useless,no pace.no trick, no nothing. our midfield closed them down ok but there was just no good balls threaded through.you all seem to like lowrey on here so i'll be the only one to say it but i don't, his performance today was how i usually see him,slow, crude,cumbersum and without a decent pass in him,he gave away a stupid foul when their player is on the touchline facing the stands and they get their second goal from the free kick.on a possitive note easter looked very lively when he came as did mcdonald they looked quick and sharp but from woeful service

      @bordersarebest0170: I was there too and you've pretty well summed it up. Morison was his old lazy self, Henry was at his frustrating worst and Lowry and Shittu were looking for the big boot all the time. There was no pace in the starting line-up and I would prefer to see Chaplow play in CM with either Derry or Bailey. Things only looked up when Easter and then Feeney (yes Feeney) came on and livened things up and we started to play with a bit of width. McDonald looked much sharper than on his previous outings when brought on near the end.
      After this showing I would start with McDonald and Easter up front, but that would only work if we started to play a passing game and ditch the big hoof up field which will only get us relegated.

        @'wallDen: I agree Easter and Feeney are fitter and hungrier to do well than Morison or Keogh It worries me that the manager was full of praise for Easter, Feeney and yes N'Guessan pre season but puts in the players he has just signed ahead of them. Does he believe they are better at the moment? I would rather have triers in the side than a passenger or two.

    I was there today and i felt that 3-0 doesn't justify the way the game planned out. The first half was 50-50 both teams had chances, Morison was lazy and getting the occasional flick on, Keogh recieved alot of stick because of having no end product, henry still doesn't look 100%, Shittu aswell, constantly getting turned by that Mcgoldrick, Chaplow, Derry and Bailey all had a good game playing the ball around, the player no one seems to be mentioning is Bywater, all three goals were from crosses because Ipswich knew that he could catch a cold! Shane Lowry had an absolute shocker today hopefully he can recover some form... Easter and Mcdonald seemed to play alright together carrying the ball and causing problems.. 3-0 was unfair on the balance of the game, hopefully we can score a goal soon..

      @MillwallFan14: lowry also had a mare against Yeovil and I can't thinknof the last time he did have a really strong performance in LB. Give Malone a run, he might be the passing defender we are looking for. Also drop Shittu, he looks really out of form and Robbo must be ready by now.

    wallden: yeah mate i agree, feeney did ok when he came on,he was having a run at em down his side and did get some crosses in and yes for sure chaplow is wasted on that left side, he's a very good centre midfielder and we'r wasting him out there, and yeah mcdonald and easter for me on this showing they looked far fitter and sharper than what they replaced

    Said it all along, holding judgement until the end of September lads. Still don't get the Derry signing. Next game, Lomas needs to start his first 11 for the season. The ones that aren't fit can come off when they blow up. Tinkering and career twilight loanees will destroy us in the long run.

    I am now after two games understanding we'll be the strongest in the division, holding up all those above us.
    I dont know people who travel away, but going by the way people on here complain about the performances thus far about, players, the team in general. I have my doubts in SL ability to gee up the players to put in a performance to be proud of.
    We need an injection of money to obtain quality players who not only want to play, but play with determination to do well and give 110% every game, the one game I've seen, showed that there are eleven players on the park, no one giving the quality needed to to get us up the division.
    The money isn't coming and therefore this is what we've got and need to make the best of it somehow,

    Will people please calm down, 2 defeats from 2 games and suddenly we're relegation candidates, win the next 2 and we'll be pushing for promotion. We're such a fickle bunch. Yeovil and Ipswich were tough games to start with, especially for a new side. Judge it after 12 games boys, there's quality that's come in and it all needs time to gell. This league just needs a run of games to win and were laughing.

      @manclion: I admire your optimism manclion and you may well be right (I sincerely hope so ).But it is not so much a case of being fickle its more like realism.
      It is not the fact we have lost both games that bothers me it is the way we have lost them.
      There seems to be very few positives at the moment. I realise we need time to gel but instead of our new players raising the game of the rest, they appear to be getting dragged down to their level.
      We are still firing blanks that is if we are firing anything, and now the bedrock of our survival last season our defence has not only turned into a quivering mass when the ball comes anywhere near them or the area but have now resorted to doing what our over paid attackers can't do and that is put the ball in the net.
      I see Aldo has tweeted that Palace lost their 1st 3 games last season, correct but they still managed to find the net 4 times themselves so it was only a case of tightening up at the back. Without additional personnel and I know we have no spare cash at the moment, how the hell does this shambles get sorted. I don't think gel is the right phrase. To me gel suggests that it is almost there but a bit more time will give the finished article. I am sorry but at the moment there is nothing to gel. We want shot of our deadwood but who are our deadwood ? it is far easier to list the people who are trying and putting in a shift.

    henry should be given extra training on finishing missed open goal by slashing high and wide against yeovil which players at this level should take then one against ipswich in closing mins .not acceptable imo.

    2 games, 0 goals, 0 points.... And we have purportedly strengthened our attacking options?
