Report: Millwall 0-2 Middlesbrough

MILLWALL fans were calling for Steve Lomas' head after a dismal 2-0 defeat to Middlesbrough in front of the TV cameras.

Second-half goals from Emmanuel Ledesma and Albert Adoma sent the Lions tumbling to a deserved defeat and the home crowd made their displeasure clear at the final whistle.

Despite threatening to make changes to his back four after the 3-2 defeat to Blackburn, boss Lomas kept faith with centre backs Paul Robinson and Mark Beevers.

The only change to the XI came up front, where former Riverside striker Scott McDonald started alongside Steve Morison.

Strong winds and swirling rain proved problematic for both sides, who mustered just one shot on goal between them in the first half.

That came just four minutes before the interval when Alan Dunne took aim from 20 yards and drilled a low drive into the arms of Shay Given.

Boro registered their only effort in stoppage time when Ben Gibson headed wide from a corner, the visitors' fifth of the half.

But Aitor Karanka's side broke the deadlock three minutes after the restart when Ledesma found the bottom corner with a inch-perfect curling finish into the far corner.

Millwall's best chance to draw level came in the 68th minute when Morison's header was parried clear by Given.

Richard Smallwood and Curtis Main both spurned chances to increase the visitors' lead before Liam Trotter curled over the bar at the other end.

Forde denied Ledesma once more but could do nothing to prevent Adomah adding a second goal in the final minute of normal time as the winger finished off a slick passing move.

That goal prompted a furious backlash from the home crowd and around 300 fans calling for Lomas to be sacked congregated outside the club offices after the game.

    Dear Mr.Berylson,
    Unless you sack Lomas and bring in someone competent we WILL get relegated.

      @NICKOLA: What happened to the great squad we were assembling?

      Not sure where we go from here. Lomas is obviously not the man for the job, but the board will be reluctant to admit their mistake by sacking him. Even if he does go, a new manager will still have to work with the same group of mediocre players we've assembled.

    I felt embarrassed watching a Millwall team play like that. You'd have thought Middlesbrough were coasting past a lower League 2 team in the Third Round. Leaden, no movement or imagination, in their back pockets all game. No service to the strikers. Feeney couldn't be tamer. Boro had a strategy and we had nothing even resembling one. If Berylson still thinks Lomas is the golden boy I hope to god he was watching that. Putting Pavey and Oneydima into this team would be like throwing two kittens into the Thames in a bag of bricks. We've seen some s*** the past two years but the team truly disgraced themselves tonight.

    Indefensible.It is blindingly obvious that he is out of his depth. One of the lowest moments for many a year. I would rather have Harris in temporary charge even without all his coaching badges.

    CRAP! I paid £10 to watch this woeful game on Sky and it was the worst home performance from a Millwall team I have seen for years. No game plan, a useless defence not one of them worth a light. Just big boots upfield, whereas Mborough kept the ball on the ground and worked their socks off. There was no one to pass to, they kept giving the ball away, a total and utter disgrace. I was prepared to give Lomas the benfeit of the doubt but not after this shambles. Unless he goes we will be relegated. I refrain from mentioning any player because they were all bad. I do not think Lomas has a clue what to do, He is out of his depth. If you want to do the club a favour Mr Lomas please, please go.

    F****** woeful performance. Really hope no one was watching on sky as that was a pathetic game of football.

    Lot of away games coming up and we all know how bad on the road we are.

    If you weren't thinking about a new job for the new year Mr Lomas you now should be.

    Merry f****** Christmas.

    I've been to all the home games this season and up to now we have got away with it on more than a few times but today the chickens came home to roost and the nation could see us exposed for the poor team we are despite that fact we have got a few good individual players. SL must go now, not because he is a West Ham c*** (we had Billy Bonds as a manager and you can't get a bigger West Ham c*** than him) but because he is clue less and senior players have questioned his tactics publicly so he has (or is in the process of) losing the dressing room. That was a gutless performance so get someone like Holliway in who shows a bit of passion.......

    There were quite a few good managers out of work in the summer but our board decide to plunge for an ex-vermin captain with little managerial experience except for a stint managing st johnston!!! Yet people wonder why we are in a relagation fight? Other clubs bring in loan signings to make an impact yet we bring in players on loan like moussi to sit on the bench. We have players like henry out on loan while we play the likes of feeney instead. Our goal difference is -17 yet no defensive changes. I hope the chairman and board are happy. Bottom line PAY PEANUTS GET MONKEYS.........

    this performance says it all, no shape, no plan, no quality and above all no passion and when you reach the point when you dont even have the heart for it there can only be one way to go. SL has to go NOW to give us any sort of chance of staying up. If he has any savvy he will see it and go. Not a Lomas hater but c'mon mate the games up!

    I am not one who likes to see people get sacked, but if JB sticks with Lomas will will definitely be playing in Division one next season, That is the worse millwall team i have seen for a very long time. We have some good players, but none of them have a clue where they are meant to be playing, just kick and hope. LOMAS MUST GO

    Good grief, that was highly concerning to watch. Lomas bunkered down most of the game in the dug out and players completely clueless on the pitch. There was no shape, no game plan, nothing! Devoid of passion, guts and pride, I simply couldn't understand it. Middlesborough wasn't that good and was there for the taking they just had pace to hurt on the counter offensive but that performance sums up our 2013 - rock bottom stuff. Time is up on Lomas, millwall can still survive but it needs to be without Steve. We need an experienced manager urgently.

    It looks like relegation to me but I have been wrong before, if it happens this lot will struggle in div one,

    I am actually shaking thats how angry I am we have decent individuals and no team sitting in dockers lower screaming at malone to shut the winger down in the first half it was feeney giving too much space you know its bad when alan dunne musters up a left footed shot from 20 yards morison and mcdonald did not get on arguing over who should close it down. I was a season ticket holder until kj left only went tonight to take my 3 year old to his game surely we need a new manager LOMAS OUT!!!!

    To be honest I thought Feeney looked a lot better than usual, but that is me comparing him to a below average team performance. That Lomas bloke needs to go!. I will never understand why they decided to hire someone with no championship experience, he hasn't got a clue. How has he not yet realised Easter needs to start, things got a bit better when he was one.

    Also what was happening with the defence; Robinson- is passed it, might as well sell him, Beevers- looked average at best, Malone- what was he doing, if he would have watched the ball instead of moving like a melt it could have been avoided.

    Surely we can get a petition going to get this mug out?

      @timchimes: Tim, when the ball is pumped from one end of the field to the other in a gale force wind quality players are always going to be marginalised. I'd bet his passing stats were pretty high today because when we did get it down he moved it around well.
      Thought Dunne was solid and Forde had no chance with either goal, but the rest of it I pretty much agree with.

    @conor: I am neither a Lomas hater or plater but I do not believe in having a manager merry go round, we have been there before.
    What ever manager we have would make little difference, it is simply that the players we have do not have the ability to play in this division week in week out, and before people start quoting that its the best squad of players we have had I think tonights showing will show you they are not.
    Middlesboro have had a crap season but you could see they have some skilful players. It would take a lot more than we can afford as a club to become competitive.
    Football is all about money unfortunately, our crowds are usually the 2nd or 3rd smallest of the division with Yeovil usually the lowest.
    Borough were rubbish for long periods of the game which reflected their league position but they had players who had skill and could play it on the ground which the conditions dictated.
    We were back to hoof and run, our forwards never had a chance.
    We will probably drop this season but even if we don't we will drop the next season, we cannot compete with the wealthier clubs. I don't want us to drop but it will happen sooner or later but it is not the end of the world because at least we should be at the right end of Div 1 and hopefully battle for promotion again.
    In over 40 odd years of supporting MFC we have always been a yoyo club, our stint in this division has been the longest in one division I can remember but we have to appreciate that financially we are a div 1 club and as football is all about money the inevitable will happen but MFC will go on.

      @Sealion: I disagree, a new manager would spurt life into the club i.e. Holloway and if the players like the manager they would be constantly doing their best to impress him. As for our squad you are right, the defence is pitiful. Then we have a average midfield who are injury prone and as for the strike force its good but not great. Also in terms of the clubs financial status that could be changed with better marketing of the club. Week in week out we have untold amount of empty seats, Millwall should think about dropping the ticket prices or do buy one get one free. Its not hard surely they can bang their heads together and come up with some simple incentives

        @Dazi: Its all about opinions Daz but I don't think even Alex Fergusson could do much with our squad they do not seem even to be able to do the basics and show very little individual skill or or ability. A rocket up the a*** may get someone trying a bit more but it can't create skill or ability that is not or no longer there.
        Some of the players look good on paper but either don't make it to the grass or are crap when they do.
        I think we should get rid of Mc D as we do not have the players to get the best out of him. He may be our best player but if we can't get the best out of him we may as well save on his wages.
        I think it would be best if we did drop then we could move on the expensive non effectual players we have and bring the youth in with the pressure off them, they will not get into the team all the time we have to fight for survival in this division.

        @Dazi: yes true Dazi - we should be staying up with these players - bottom 6 may be, but not bottom 3 - being this bad is not inevitable - we would not have had to be very good today to get a draw - why can't we expect players to know their jobs - we seem like we are making it up as we go along every week- - when something good happens it is by chance

      @Sealion: we have the players that has been proved by some of our results this season but we dont have a manager.Its obvious the players have no respect for him and he has no idea how to set up a team or make tactical changes within a game. We are having the p*** taken out of us by the board and chairman.

      @Sealion: strongly disagree if that's ya outlook you might as well go with him why should we just accept we're a league 1 team ? we ain't we have been in this division long enough now . so it's not a gien we should be down there at all! lomas is to blame and that's the end of it . look at derby they were f****** shocking like us and hire mclaren and win 7 out of 7 coz he sorted em out tactically . lomas has f***** us beyond repair NEARLY! we have a chance to save it if we sack this no good c***!

        @steveomfc5: Been supporting MFC for over 40 years Steve so I ain't going anywhere, just putting down some facts. If you think we have a good squad after tonights fiasco then you are deluded. The manager may call the tactics etc but if the players can't do the basics like passing carrying the ball and tackling then whatever manager you have is not going to make a rats a*** of difference. You mention Derby but they have a great bunch of you talented players that just needed some guidance while we have injury prone has beens that no one else wanted, fact.
        You can get get rid of Lomas I do not really care but I do not think anyone can get much more out of this lot. They can't even manage a hand full of games before they are back on the sick.
        You are right we have had some good results but if you look a bit closer we have been lucky as we have been outplayed for a good few of them.

          @Sealion: You say the squad is no good how do you explain the performances against leeds,burnley,blackpool, qpr, and reading. All lomas did today was stand on the touchline and clap his hands to gee them up,there was no instructions or tactical changes.As for players being sick or injured maybe lomas needs to change his training program because the injuries are not match related they seem to be happening on the training ground. I believe lomas has lost the dressing room due to him being clueless and cocky with it.

            @Eightieswall: We can always rise to certain games, we do it every year we give the top teams a game and then get rolled by the bottom clubs. Same old same old.
            We were fortunate to get a point against QPR, Reading and Burnley although there were spells when we out played them.
            Only Leeds and Blackpool were we convincing.
            You are right Eighties the training regime probably does need looking at. I have a mate who is a Pompey fan and he told me they had a similar problem with training ground injuries which was due to one of their managers working them too hard.

            @Eightieswall: I agree mate.... Sealion you can not be serious saying our squad is a League 1 squad??? We are playing like it under Lomas yes but them boys can play!!!! We took a few teams apart on our good days but been far too many bad days and a decent manager will sort this.....

            How can Lomas not be screaming his stinking breath at the LAZY Trotter and Morrison??? I real manager would scare the s*** out of them especially someone with respect in the football world like Holloway.....

            It seems our players are thinking Steve Lomas???? Whe the f*** are you??

          @Sealion: we have a much better squad than we ever had with K.J i don't know how you're working this out ? lomas is tactically inept , and has proven so time and time again the players need a strong leader with good knowledge of the league and someone with a proven track record they have to respect. if we don't respect the manager they will have trouble doing so . they all need a kick up the a*** but it needs doing by the right man which lomas is not by a looong shot!

            @steveomfc5: As I said Steve the squad looks good on paper compared to what we had but Chaplow is never fit nor is Lee whatever his name is, Bailey has missed quite a few games and McD seems to be injury prone so in effect we do not have such a great squad. We could have Ronaldo and Messi but if they were always on the treatment table then it means jack s***. The loans we have have not cut the mustard except Waggy. So we are basically functioning with last years side.

    Abject. Clueless. Shocking.
    One of the worst performances I have seen for a long while. It's all very well saying that the players are the ones not performing but that match shows up how poor the coaching is this season. At the end of the day, if the players aren't delivering for a manager you have to get rid of the manager, especially when he has spunked the budget on a load of players who even he doesn't think are good enough to play.
    Time to go, Lomas, and take Harford and Breaker with you while you're at it.

    Ok ive had a night to sleep on this and only really see one major problen with giving lomas a chance anymore and that is simply its not going to be all sorted in one match he needs months to impose his 'master plan' by then it will be sh*t or bust and to me thats too much of a risk so im sticking with lomas out

    I don't want Warnock but I wouldn't mind Holloway. He has shown with Palace that he can get a good spirit in the dressing room and get results with a very limited budget. Above all, he has experience, which Lomas is clearly lacking.
    We really missed the boat with McLaren and Rossler. Either of them would have been good.

      @junkmale: don't think we can be fussy to be honest.

      If Warnock was even interested we would be very fortunate to get him IMO.

    I left at half-time on Saturday fearing it wouldn't get any better, and those fears were confirmed when I arrived home just in time to see 'Boro score their second goal. I've got past the disappointing stage in watching Millwall, its disillusionment that's kicking in now. Not just because of Lomas, we've been poor over the last two and half seasons and the number of home defeats in that period has been horrendous.

    Whether the board realise their mistake in appointing Lomas and give him the tintack only time will tell, but they have made rod for their own back if the manager's contract details are to be believed. They can't afford to sack him, but on the other hand, can they afford to keep him? Especially if they go down.

    From an historical point of view two of Millwall's seven relegations have arrived when managed by a Northern Irishman. Bill McCracken in 1934 and then Jimmy Nicholl in 1996, all I hope is that Steve Lomas doesn't make it an unwanted hat-trick in 2014.
