Lomas defiant after Millwall lose at home to Middlesbrough

©
©

STEVE Lomas put on a brave face after Millwall's 2-0 defeat to Middlesbrough at The Den prompted protests from supporters.

Around 300 fans gathered outside the club's main reception to voice their frustration at the performance after watching the Lions fall tamely to a second successive defeat.

There were loud boos at the final whistle and deservedly so after Boro, who had not won once in their previous ten away fixtures, eased to victory.



But Lomas did not seem fazed by the crowd's reaction.

"You've got to be a strong person to work at this club," Lomas said. "You accept the praise when you win, and equally take the criticism when you lose.

"I can understand the frustration of the fans but we have bounced back before this season and have two back-to-back away games now to put things right.



"The fans want us to win. I have no problem [with criticism] because I am the manager and the one who has to front up and accept it. Ultimately the buck stops with me."

Asked whether he feared his job was now at risk, Lomas said: "The board are pretty strong people but I can't make decisions for them. All I can do is do the job to the best of my ability.

"I have to keep positive with the lads and I've said to them that we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that we have been on a good run at home."

Emmanuel Ledesma and Albert Adomah scored the goals to put Millwall to the sword in blustery conditions in South London.

"It's obviously disappointing," Lomas added. "We knew that given the way the weather was that the first goal would be crucial, so to concede it from our own attacking situation was like a double whammy.

"We should have regained the ball on the edge of the box but we didn't and then they break quickly without us putting in a meaningful tackle.

"It's a good finish from Ledesma we should be getting people back and getting blocks in.

"It wasn't easy to get the ball down and pass it and the game was fragmented, which is why that first one was going to be critical and it proved to be the case.

"We lacked creativity and penetration in the final third. Liam Trotter and Steve Morison had a couple of half chances but it wasn't meant to be."

      Definatly think Lomas has to go...im sorry but we are a sinking ship and if nothing gets sorted now then we will be playing league 1 football next year... Bring in Steve Clarke, or what ever happened to going aboard for a foreign manger? might be good, inject a new lease of life into the team, new way of play and with the crowd and the atmosphere down at the den it could be all what we need. Because going from yesterdays game we lacked passion, the fight to win or pressure the opposition. manager not knowing what he is doing....making your assistant chief scout or whatever? JB i really hope you read this and the other 201 comments on here..ive been going to millwall since i was 18 months old and im 22 now traveling up and down the country...swansea away in the cup on a friday night....to the auto wind screen final at wembley when we lost 1-0 to wigan when they scored in the last minute. to traveling all the way to hungray to watch millwall play away in europe in the ufea cup for the first time.......this has to be the worst i have seen millwall play......we need the passion back...COYL!!!!!!!!!!!

      THEY JUST COULD NOT HOLD ON TO THE BALL..............
      I SAID 3 - 0 TO MILLWALL.............. BUT ONLY IF DANNY SHITTU PLAYED, AS WE KNOW, WE LOST
      2 - 0.................A FIVE { 5 } GOAL DIFFERENCE IF DANNY SHIITU HAD PLAYED.

    One of the worst performance's I've seen at the Den and Lomas showed absolutely no tactical nous. Long ball from the off. The defenders looked panicky as s***, no passing from the back whatsoever. The only player who showed any willing to get the ball and do something was Scott McDonald - so sure as anything Lomas took him off. Unfortunately, we need to get rid now because the transfer window is next week

        @millwallbuilder: No, we need to get rid of Lomas before the window - so we can have a manager who is able to put together a long term plan at the club and buy players accordingly. Lomas hasn't the ability nor nous to be granted the opportunity.

    If Lomas is still the manager on Monday then the Millwall board are inept.
    It's US - The supporters that give a club its soul- Not managers out of their depth, a CEO that couldn't run a bath nor an owner that clearly doesn't understand what is happening.

        @millwallbuilder: Inept for years...yes. In fairness though JB has put a lot of money on the table this season, and that cash hasn't come from the attendences. Problem is that despite the fact that in the main, Lomas has bought well, he hasn't got a clue at this level how to utilise the squad. Just as poor is the fact that Berylson doesn't have, nor could ever have, a clue about the general emotions surrounding the predicament that Millwall now face. A succesfull businessman he is, an acceptance that he made a mistake of biblical proportions when giving Lomas a contract-No.

          @NICKOLA: One of the reasons for falling attendances has been the lack of quality on offer over the past few years. Berylson has made a big thing about all the players that were brought in, but they were largely all free-transfers that other clubs didn't really want.

    Lomas Out.... The movement off and patience on the ball at Millwall its painstaking to watch, i saw Trotter feed other players then slowly walk up the pitch....??? He should be feeding the Ball then bursting up field with the attack to give them options and support??? Feeny was given the ball on the right about six times by Trotter and was left to beat three players to get cross in??? If trotter had given him support we could of created more dangerous chances.... I spotted it in first ten mins, if Lomas cant see this or get players to carry it out he is not worthy of a job here.... Terrible display....

    Movement
    Composure
    Pass and Follow/support

    three simple rules for winning teams!!!

    I've been saying it all season. LOMAS OUT. That is by far the worst performance I have witnessed at the Den for a long time. Well since Derby at home a few weeks ago. We will get relegated if he does not go now but I fear the damage has been done.

    Well that was an embarrassment. Absolutely no creativity in midfield which is where the key to good football must start. I have loved Jimmy Abdou but have never really liked Trotter and if you get the chance to watch it again you will see how they were never in the game. Jimmy is now out of his comfort zone and Trotter is still just lazy. But the manager has to recognise this and I'm afraid that all SL has left is reputation damage limitation and unfortunately for Millwall he is failing badly at that. Thanks for trying SL, I won't be personal but you must hold your hands up and admit you've failed.

    I said some weeks back boycotte the home games its the only way Berylson will take notice if he actual sees or is aware that we will not tolerate Lomas he has to go ASAP the only good thing about losing today is that it was on TV and now all can see how Lomas has taken us to new lows .
    Sack him now and get in someone who firstly can make sure we are not in league 1 next season and secondly has the ability vision and flair to move Wall upwards and on
    Drastic measures are needed to get this Pratt out turning up week after week is not the answer ,Yes it hurts not being at wall but what hurts more seeing this Pratt drag us down to league 1
    Today was a ploy £5.00 a ticket to drag us in knowing its on TV and Christmas shopping etc the real reason is being on TV would look pathetic with an near empty stadium and crap team and Lomas as manager a Christmas present to the fans Boll....s the best present we want is Lomas OUT

        @jim1222: exactly, players that art not championship level players and why Lomas continues to play them is beyond me, his use of the loan system has been deplorable bringing in players that are no better than what we already have. we have needed a centre half who reads the game and has a bit of pace, but all he's brought in are midfield players and right backs. i was one who used to comment that we needed to give him time to select his best team, but the longer he has been here the more clueless he becomes.

    No pride, no passion and most importantly, NO IDEA. Lomas must go or we should vote with our feet. The chairman wants a bigger fan-base, well I think he's going to give the anoraks one if he persists with Lomas as manager. Enough is enough, imo, and we should petition the board to get rid now before we have to start looking at League 1 fixtures for next season.

    If I were the manager of this club (or any football club) I would register for a site like this (under a false name of course) and see what the paying supporters had to say about me. So in the off chance that you have done that Mr Lomas I would like to make the following comments....

    1) Your tactical knowledge is that of a chocolate fireguard. You kept Feeney on for 90 mins when their full back had him in his pocket all game, could you not see that it was like playing with 10 men while he was on the pitch?

    2) Both our full backs are League One players at best, you moaned about the 2 goals per game in our goals against column so what do you do, stick with the same back four, and guess what happened, we kept our two goals per game against record alive.

    3) You spout off about our unbeaten home record (7 games) like its something to be proud of, but anyone who has seen those games know that we have been lucky and it has papered over the cracks. Today the chickens came home to roost, no wonder we get murdered away from home. By the way 59 games at home without losing is a proper record.

    4) Senior players have questioned your tactics in a national newspaper (ok it was only The Sun who are a bunch of s*** c**** but even they get it right sometimes) so you are losing the dressing room, even more so now.

    5) You are out of your depth. You got away with it in the Mickey Mouse leagues but this is different. This league has the 4th best aggregate attendance in Europe.

    I think that if you wanted to make people to really believe In Father Christmas the best thing to do would to be to f*** off now................

    We're all agreed then.

    Now.
    Not at the end of the season because League one is a very tough division to get out of.
    We need a competent Manager at this level to keep us up.
    For me, that has to be Holloway.

    The manager seems a decent man and it's a shame it's got to this stage, the fact that he played for west ham is irrelevant, what is relevant is the apparant lack of tactics , the seemingly random team selection , robbo and dunned for god sake , would they get in orients team ? No . The awfully embarrassing stats quoted by sky saying we have less possession than any team in the division,a friend of mine asked me at half time " what is he telling them to do ?" I have no idea , he has to go , he's out of his depth and we are in massive trouble , if we recreate this evenings level of performance then relegation is a formality, we need new blood new brain new culture new idea , the game is football , please attempt to play it lads .

    Paid for 10 extra tickets tonight and forced people there in the p****** rain. An embarrassment. That's it for me - not going back until the clueless c*** has gone. It's not the losing it's the gutless manner of it.
    They can shove my ST up Lomas's a*** and if relegation happens (very likely) they won't be getting my money next year.
    Maybe it's the filthy stench from the Council yard next to the ground that puts the players off - I'm sure silly b***** will come out with that for an excuse soon. Does put me off though and adds to the general air of decay developing around the club

    Saw the game so have my own opinions on the players: Forde must be itching to get away playing behind that every week. Dunne had a solid game in a shambles of a defence and put more decent crosses in than our wide players put together. Robbo is a legend but his legs have gone. Beevers is like Bambi on ice. Maloney is not a good full back and if he's poor going forward like today he becomes pointless. Woolford hid all game. Trotter tried to play on the rare occasions we got it on the deck. Jimmy tried hard as always but was poor. Feeney is so poor I don't know where to begin. McDonald did not stop moaning at his team mates and did fk all himself. Morison worked his ar*e off and only Trotter could find him with one quality ball. Easter came on and spent most of the last half hour on his backside. Keogh tried hard but was only noticeable because of his stupid haircut.
    Lomas' post match comments on Sky were laughable and he is in complete denial regarding his own role in this shambles.
    I wasn't worried about relegation before today as I thought there were at least three teams worse than us. If there are I pity the fans of those clubs because they must be dire.
    I now think that relegation is a distinct possibility unless Lomas gets his head out of his ar*e or he is replaced.

        @Sealion: players who should be proud of themselves: Forde, Dunne, Trotter and Morison. The rest were well below par and in some cases they did nothing but prove they are squad players at best. Feeney, Abdou, Woolford, I am looking at you. Very disappointed in Beevers and Robbo who looked like they were missing Shittu so decided to play like him. Malone was exposed out of position many times and took stupid chances in possession when any decent full back would have sent the ball up the line or placed himself to. Block the counter attack.

          @glyngo: I agree with you about Morison I thought he ran his socks off. I thought Forde was wrong to keep kicking the ball so long in the 1st half bearing in mind the wind, he never gave the MF or forwards a chance. I like Trotter but thought he went missing for long periods and was lightweight at times. Dunney was Dunney. The rest I am in total agreement.

      @lion.ie: this is right on the money except a few things - Easter worked hard and tried some touches that might have come off if any of the midfield knew how to link up - Keogh did nothing that hurt their defence -he shouldn't be out wide any way -

      the bigger picture is that we never outplay teams - even when we win I never think we were the better team and that we could replicate that in another match which we might dominate - including KJ last back end I am never confident that we will win - and that is because we are not good enough and never will be with Lomas doing his stuff

        @timchimes: Yeah, maybe a bit harsh on Easter but he was a bit lightweight today. Keogh got stuck in but it's not fair to judge him on that. 'Boro were made to look half decent at times but we'll see how they get on in the next couple of games?
        The problem is that we have no shape to our midfield, it's all over the place. Nobody seems to know what there job is. This is why teams are walking through us on the counter and then coming up against what is now a shambles at the back. I honestly thought that Dunney had a good game today, solid, good going forward and a proper no frills full back like we'e always had.
        I think today also answers all of the questions about Morison. For him to work so hard for such little reward tells you all you need to know about attitude and commitment.
        Difference between KJ and Lomas is that you would have a lot of faith in KJ getting sorted but I have little faith in Lomas right now.

          @lion.ie: Dunne was what he usually is - hard working ; lacking quality on the ball and periodically in trouble when he comes up against a good player - he wasn't at fault for the goals

          it is the same problems not addressed that I have spoken about 100 times -- because we have no distribution from the back the opposition know they don't have to press us high and so drop off and pick us up in midfield ( today 2 and 3 players on Feeney at times - trotter not effective - found no space)) so we have to bang it long that is easy to deal with because Morrison is the only one who will win headers - w lose possession too easily and are always under pressure - players then try too hard - they try to force something from nothing and that is how their first goal came ; no patience on the ball - it changes the whole match

            @timchimes: Good point re the distribution from the back. This was why I was banging on about Shittu being over rated last season. Can't defend Robbo's performance today and Beevers has two left feet, neither of them he can pass with. We missed a trick when we didn't go back in for St.Ledger at centre half in the summer.

    Saw a great performance today, the players were superb and very professional organised by a manager who knew what he was doing, although his players weren't top class he got the best out of them.
    THAT'S POOLE PANTO.

    I have not been against Lomas since day 1. He did a good job up North and I feel it was only fair he got a chance. The fact he is ex Wet Spam means nothing to me. He wants a reputation as a good manager, but sadly I have now joined the dissenting ranks. Today was an embarrassment, sorry SL, you must go now, and any reputation gained again Millwall now will be that of a fraud and failure.
    I am with Singlewhitelion, get Olly in before it's too late. In fact Olly Murs could probably do a better job!

    Just got home from the game and after that performance Lomas has to go and I can not see how he is going to turn this around. Problem is who do we put in his place and can we afford it. Could try Harris his Millwall through and through who's already there working with the squad and ain't going to cost a lot to put in place, but isn't proven and do we have the time to give him a chance ?

He left the Gills because he wanted to be more hands on with the coaching side. To be honest I am not saying he is a great manager but I bet he is a great coach.

    Where do I start? That was without doubt one of the worst games of football I have ever had the displeasure of watching. After 10 minutes I was ready leave the ground, a total and utter shambles.

    I'm sure I read Lomas' interview on here when he complained bitterly about the back four and what did he? Put the same four out on the pitch today. Does he even remember the rubbish that he trots out in each interview?

    I've said before and I'll say again, SL can't be the only one to blame, pretty much every player out on the pitch in a Millwall shirt should be ashamed of themselves this evening, barely any of them got out of second gear and those who did just aren't capable of playing at this level. Each week one or more of them are on here asking us to support them and get behind them yet they put out performance like tonight. If I performed that badly in my job, I'd be out on my ear. I'm half tempted to say that we should sack the whole lot of them, Lomas included.

    Maybe the players are hacked off with Lomas and don't agree with his tactics, however they have to remember that WE pay their wages so they should be playing for us and not for him. By all means they should voice their opinions to our owner, but they should still put a shift in for the fans.

    As I've already paid for my season ticket, I'll keep going to the home games, but I confess I'm doing it now out of duty, I haven't enjoyed a game in ages and I dread walking to the ground. That of course isn't helped by the stench of walking past the rubbish dump that is now part of our ground (what the f*ck is that about?)

    I don't think JB will do anything about SL until the end of the season, my guess is we got him in super cheap and he probably has a clause in his contract that states if we kick him out we have to pay the remainder of his salary. So I'd say JB needs to spend some more time in the UK with the team (they always seem to play better when he's around) and listen to the senior players to understand where the rub is between them and the ginger one, try and iron that out and limp us through to the end of the season. Hopefully we'll stay up, get rid of him in the summer and start to rebuild into something resembling a team.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all - lets hope 2014 is better for us than 2013 has been

    Dear Mr Lomas
    I for one am not going to s*** you down, I think inexperience will be your undoing. Your have come from The Scottish league, where players eager to get better and impress for their £500 per week and would run through a brick wall for you. To a squad that basically don't give a f--k who they play for unless the money is right. I was at last seasons players dinner and KJ was very emotional about players attitude. He's words were " we have some very good players here BUT some players have to take a long look at themselves. KJ see this coming and decided he could not do no more. The same players are still here and it showed today. Lomas undoing will be inexperience dealing with players who's egos are bigger than there ability . Stuck out a mile tonight no passion, passing the buck, and blaming one another. Lomas must take some of the blame, there seems to be no direction, loaning players out and bringing them back, and not including them in the squad, must drive them mad. Whether he stays or goes, he will learn bundles from this, and may become a good manager. But what concerns me from a Millwall point of view, who can turn this bunch of big headed, no passion, 10 grand a week t****** into a football team. Would your take the job ?.
    Sups 8892 : PS. Totally ashamed of Millwall players attitude tonight.
    Happy Xmas.xxx

All Lions fans should seriously think of boycotting those boozers. F****** disgrace that local team is playing an they refuse to show it on TV.

    Ok so it seems that reading all comments we are all in agreement the next thing we need to do is galvanise our comments into action so lets get organised and boycott the Leicester game Berylson will be expecting 12000+ gate so what better time to vote with our feet
    Lomas needs to be shown we won't tolerate him and Berylson needs to be hit in the pocket. So come on all Wall fans, all together for Walls future pass on the word on all websites Boycott the Leicester game,
    We are 1 we are Millwall .

    If the players go out with a bad attitude that is down to the manager , something is seriously wrong with their spirit.. A good manager would have sorted this squad out by now. Not only that many of them he has bought in and subsequently left out because they are not delivering out on the pitch. Lomas has made too many errors , failed to build a decent defence and even picks the same defenders who have let in so many goals. I thought at least he would have bought Shittu or Lowry back in.
    His team selection today was as weak as his tactics, if he had any because it was a totally haphazard kick and rush stuff. When the team fell behind they made a couple of decent passes and moves, Trotter squandered a golden opportunity to equalise.
    Blaming individual players is fruitless, the manager is responsible and his time is up. if the board can't see that then they are as much to blame as him.

    Lets face it we did not look like scoring, the only positive from the game was a 22 yard effort from Dunne.

    Not one player played well, a handful put in a shift yes but we was sloppy all game.... dire football.... seriously my sunday team hold the ball and pass better NO EXAGGERATION!!!!

    Main Offenders

    Trotter & Morrison lazy c**** simple.... So bad that its offensive to watch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lomas should be screaming this in their faces with stinking coffee breath foaming at the mouth!!!!!!

    Robinson and Beevers cant pass or spread the ball to save their lives.... Dunne and Malone (Especially) love to pull out wide to get the ball form them or Forde (who's distribution is s***)

    Abdou, Woolford, Mcdonald & Easter all put in a shift, Malone was poor today but i am a big fan of him, Dunne was ok......

    LOMAS OUT this is school boy stuff he needs to go

      @JONO: not a good analysis I'm afraid - woolford was totally ineffective - tell me how he impacted the game - what did he do that threatened to create a goal other than give the ball away for their goal - morison won challenges, laid the ball off continually for others to mess up - it reminds me of when sheringham used to get stick for being trying to play football

        @timchimes: Please read my post again... I said we did not look like scoring all game also said it was a dire performance....

        Woolford did not make a single impact and i did not in previous post.... my point was that Abdou, Woolford, Mcdonald & Easter all put in a shift... Meaning they tried and was sweating their b***** off, which is more i can say about Trotter and Morro...... Are you seriously saying Morrison had a good game??? hahahahaha

    We went stale under kj towards the end and he had run out of ideas, that display against boro reminded me of last season. Lomas has no plan a never mind b. we are 20 games in and it looks like he has lost the players already and the fans wont be far behind.He needs to sling his hook now.

      @Eightieswall: thats a good point you can lose one or the other, but when both are against the manager his time is up . Let's not forget the part played by our so called professional squad that couldn't show leadership from within their own ranks. With one or two exceptions

        @glyngo: glynggo as you know i have supported lomas on this site and i will continue to do so ,untill it is decided otherwise by the board,a lot of todays players were the same under jacket and will be the same under a new manager, if and when lomas goes,Will a new manager have time or money to get new players in,our defence is and has been the problem,forget about tactics for the moment.They cant or wont even jump to head a ball,or make a reasonable pass out of defence ,if we get a new manager are they going to change over night,i dont think so some how.What would be good, is for a few fans to be able to be in the dressing room and give them what for{couldnt happen i know].IMO they cant change because they just are not championship quality.We can only hope we can survive this season,and then hopefully get rid of the rubbish in our defence which will be difficult because of their wages and length of contracts,given by the previouse regime under jacket.So unless the board appoint a new manager quickly, we need to get behind lomas and the team, as bad as our defenders are,we are going to have to sweat it out as we did last year.If we dont get behind them we are down that is for sure.
        as i said before i have supported lomas big time so im feeling a bit sick at the moment,but what worries me even if he goes we are going to be stuck with a bunch of players who are not worthy,of wearing the shirt.
        any way happy xmas

          @jim1222: Jim you say forget about tactics well Lomas has no tactics. I have been to every home game and can tell you the players are more than capable, the manger isnt. He was sat in the dugout yesterday with his arms folded liked he had given up, Players were looking over to him for instructions but got nothing back. Why do you think that is ?. If we drop into the bottom three will you still support the board ? if we get relegated will you still blame the players, kenny jacket ,the fans, the hotdog seller and the turnstile man, The board made this appointment and up to now its not working,maybe if you watched them live for 4 or 5 games you might have a different opinion.

            @Eightieswall: Eighties do these so called experienced players need to be told how to challange for headers in the box,how to close down opposition,how to tackle, how to pass a simple ball without giving it to the opposition?.yes Lomas is lacking in his tactics but these F*****G players are on good money and i expect more effort from them even if they dont like Lomas.Yes i will still support who ever is pulling the strings if we do go down,but i will put my views to them in writing,as i have done in the past,I was never a fan of jacket, but i did not s*** him off like a lot of people did.and in that respect i wont s*** lomas off .oh and i have watched them live for four games yoevil,huddsfield,burnley and barnsleyand you know what of all the goals against us none of them was lomas,s fault they were all down to bad defending or schoolboy errors by these w a n k e r s who call them selves defenders. my gripe with lomas is he been inept at getting the right players in to correct the problems.As for players looking for instructions i wont argue with you as i was not there,but they the players could show a bit more effort in doing the basics.

            @Eightieswall: Jim i agree with a lot of the points you have raised, but lomas is also on good money and ultimately he picks the team and and sets them up. He is responsable for the results, he said in midweek he would make changes in the defense, he didnt stick to his word. yesterday our midfield was pants he did nothing to change it. The players dont want to or cant play for him,thats a big problem and i hope player power prevails here. I respect you for your views and support of our team even if we dont always agree. Happy christmas to you and the rest of the chaps on here.

          Sorry to be blunt but if you are going to suspend your critical faculties and defer all opinion regarding Lomas to The Powers That Be on the board what is the point of just pitching up to echo the spin they are punting out? If you agree with them because, after due consideration, you actually believe this stuff then fair play but this "my manager right or wrong" attitude is surely nonsense.

    Mr Aldridge if you could post an article with a simple vote option for whether the fans would like a change of manager or to stick with Lomas I think the result would be pretty damming.

    Someone at the club must check this site from time to time and I suspect 90%+ now want Lomas out.

    I mean how bad do we have to play for the manager to get sacked?! Other clubs do it for no apparent reason at all. If only we had a mental/ungrateful Malaysian in charge ala Cardiff.

      @MFC Lion: careful what you wish for, imagine milwall becomung the London Lions and playing in Yellow because 'its a lucky colour in some far flung corner of the world'. I would take our chairman over any other and he has shown a generous share of loyalty to SL but now he has to act. JB pull the trigger sunshine and bring in a seasoned campaigner to get us to end of season.

        @glyngo: what I was trying to imply was there are many Chairmen who sack their managers for little or no apparently logical reason.

        However ours, who I appreciate has been good on the whole, has for whatever reason stuck with a manager who has had nearly half a season to get his ideas across and failed.

        Multiple awful results, terrible tactics, worst league defence and yet this doesn't result in him being sacked.

        I'm just surprised basically, how bad to do you need to be at Millwall to lose your job these days?

        Claridge lasted about a month and the season hadn't even started for f**** sake!

    Not going to launch a personal attack on anyone and i have to say I've sat on the fence about Lomas up-to now.
    That display yesterday was one of the most embarrassing displays of football by a team I have ever seen. I've never seen the ball in the air so much, (get the f****** thing on the deck).Lomas obviously, either don't know what he's doing or can't get the players to do what he wants. We can't sack the whole squad so we have to sack Lomas, now.
    I know people have been saying this from the start but I think a lot of anti west ham sentiment got in the way unnecessarily. I f****** hate that lot as much as anyone and if you come to our club I'll back you 100%, regardless of your past.
    I can't see him jacking it in so the board have to make two important decisions, now.
    1 sack Lomas
    2 invest in Hollaway.
    Hollaway knows this league pretty well and I believe he's a decent man-manager.
    IF anyone from the board reads this site take note of the ever growing anti-Lomas feeling around and ignore this at your peril, act now and it might just save the club from another 4-5 years of lower league football.

      @SE11 Lion: sack Lomas yes, bring in Holloway, no! He nearly had a nervous meltdown in his last job so how wouldbhe deal with an unhappy Den crowd. Also, he spends big time, I'm notsure we have a big enough budget for him. Warnock, I certainly did not want him in the Summer but am now eating my words as he would know what it takes to keep us up

    Feel sick to the stomach.
    When you go mr lomas please take your back room with you and eight of your starting eleven last night. I've seen 95% of our clubs success and all the s*** in and around it in that time but this is the single most embarrassing time I can remember it's getting to the point of hate for my club I'm ashamed. The guys in the shirt have done nothing in terms of passion spirit effort dedication heart or soul for this club this season and I'm now done. I can't stomach that s*** anymore. I don't need to talk about who done what last night cause we all witnessed it, one or two exceptions is the story of our season.
    To millwall football club
    Of course I'm annoyed and disgusted with the sorry state we find ourselves in right now but this is only due to the collective decisions you board members have made. In this season of good wil can you kindly make a four year olds Christmas and more importantly, new yr a special one by releasing our current manager from his duties. He really wants to come with me every game and absolutely loves his football kit but, how can I as a father show him a lack of respect by doing so ? It's no guarantee to bring success but it will allow me to bring him in a more peacefully environment all I hear is effing and blinding against the manager and it's getting worse by the game it ain't good chaps but if the performance on the pitch is down to the manager then the managers performance is down to the board. Your as much to blame for this as the manager is but the good news is you have three more sleeps to put it right guys and we can all move on from this shocking state.
    Never mind I'm just one of the soppy mugs who care about us
    Merry Christmas mfc.

      @lukesmithmfc: tut tut Luke.

      Whilst I completely agree with you, your desperate letter smacks of bad parenting lol.

      Your child / children look up to you like there is no other. Tell them they can choose their religion, their football team is not in doubt.

      Take them down the den(alright maybe not this season then) and let them experience the ups and downs of following our great club. Tell them the advantages of Millwall over the big boys and tell them why supporting millwall is sooo good.

      They will admire the heart you carry for our beloved club and in a short time won't care what others say. They will rise above the playground comments because they will see the club they love regularly, unlike all the little devils, gooners and playground scousers.

      Your patience will be rewarded with another one or two Millwall fans and then you get to have a lovely family day out at the den every other week.

      Well it worked for me lol!

        @bonnie1272: I hear you Bonn but that wasn't the point I was making. I would be a bad parent for taking him right now I appreciate in life there is the rough with the smooth ups and downs an all that but, for most we do have a choice to try and put things right or to try and change things especially when it's going wrong through decisions we made ourselves.
        The board want people to turn up they want new people to turn up and turn up again they want us to bring our kids in they want to get rid of our misbehaving past but how can I bring my boy to watch eleven blokes in our colours who have no pride in what we pay them to do ? Tbh Bonn I don't want him to watch that. I may not be the best at what I do but when I turn up I'm never late I try not to have time off and whilst I'm there wether I'm a director or a tea boy I'm part of a team and I try my best to be part of it and to do what I'm asked to the best of my ability and that's all that's asked of us Bonn if people can't do that and more importantly if I can't do that then I'm really not setting the right standards or showing the right example to my kids.
        Unfortunately there are far to many people at our club who need to stand up and be counted for their actions this season and no matter what happens from now until may we are heading one way and that's league one.
        It's too late and too deep to turn it round Bonn

            @bonnie1272: I may be wrong but I get the impression Luke was saying that the current level of football on display at the Den is of such a low standard that to take his boy along, especially around Christmas, is likely to upset him and put him off football for life!

            If I had kids I certainly wouldn't subject them to the shower of s*** on display at the moment. Maybe if they were trying hard and losing I can accept that but there's no effort and what kind of lesson does it teach. "Hey look son, if your lucky enough you could stand around on a pitch looking disinterested and get paid £10k a week for your troubles."

            I'm sure it'll all wash away and we will be going through it all again in the not too distant future, it's what we do isn't it.

    Agree with all the comments made to date. The only thing likely to keep us in this division is that there are currently 5 teams worse than us ie Charlton, Doncaster, Sheff Wed, Yeovil and Barnsley. If they start to show dramatic improvement then we are really in the s***. We need to get rid of Lomas immediately before the January Transfer Window opens and he does more damage to the club with his wheeling and dealings. Bring in one of the out of work Managers who can at least try to stop the slide. ANYONE MUST BE BETTER THAN LOMAS!!!!!

    I've been hesitant about Lomas and even defended him on several occasions but surely that has to be the end of his Millwall managerial career. The performance was shocking. He has clearly lost the dressing room - I have no other explanation to this embarrassment. I would go as far as into some conspiracy theories by saying that yesterday was sort of a boycott from the players in front of the Tv cameras.
    These players cannot be as bad and we all know it. There is absolutely no passion, no hunger, no desire, no commitment, NOTHING! Come on, you could achieve that even with Sunday league players... That's the basics in football and then comes technical ability, flair, creativity and all the 'extras' that we could only dream of. Of course there are players who are clearly not up to this level but this is not the issue now. But even with poor players you could put up a fight, regroup and try to grind out results. While we have NOTHING - we have disinterested players who do not even bother if the ball passes right in front of their face, not even a trace of a team effort, no tactical plan, no idea, no structure - the gaps between the players were frightening. This is all down to the manager, we want Lomas OUT!

    You can't blame Steve Lomas for yesterday's loss. Scotty Malone should've headed Ledesma's goal, and someone should've been goal side of Adomah for the second. There's really nothing that Lomas could've don about either goal

      @JKiernan7: yes you can and yes there is.
      For both goals robbo was out if position, because he ways tracking back. That means he was too far forward in the first place.

      That is because he was trying to carry out instructions given to him by his manager.

      The manager got it wrong again, but still can see that it is his instructions and his tactics that are to blame.

      He must go and go pretty f****** quick.

      @JKiernan7: this is wrong - their goal comes from us losing possession again - when they broke our defensive shape was terrible - it is a collective thing - that is discipline and teamwork that comes from mangers -- lomas can't get our defence organised - 42 goals is ridiculous - we are lucky not to be in the bottom 3

        @timchimes: I do agree with a lot of the things that you're saying, however as professional footballers surely they would've noticed that Boro were a counter attacking threat. Is it really that hard for Malone or Dunne to tell Woolford and Feeney to cover them when they go forward so they're not vulnerable at the back. I also think people are using Lomas as a scapegoat, if we were in this position just before the transfer window last season I'm sure people would be saying give Kenny Jackett time to turn it around.

          @JKiernan7: yes the players have to think and act for themselves and yes the better ones make better decision but in the case of the first goal we were over committed (not for the first time this season) Malone doesn't know when to join in and provide the overlap or when to sit; this is partly because Woolford is not good in covering him - therefore it should be made clear to Malone that he doesn't get out of position at nil, nil - if you can't win you draw - this is explicit orders from mangers and I don't believe Lomas does that because it happens too often - if we functioned as s team Woolford would have played that ball away first time to a deep lying midfielder and we build again , but our shape is wrong so often that these things don't happen - all this should be automatic , learnt in training and stuck to - we seem to have a plan for about 5 mins and then the players just do what they like - that is why lomas is to blame

            @timchimes: Again I agree with you for the most part however our fullbacks shouldn't need it drilled into them that the centre halves can't be left to defend by themselves. If you play for a club who have conceded this many goals surely its common sense to put your defensive duties first.

    Season ticket holder of some years, but have not been this season. Forced myself to watch last night...very sad. The defence,midfield, and forwards seemed to play as three different units. There seemed to be no clear direction, no strategy, no team ethic, they were headless chickens, it.s as if there was a complete lack of training. I can't believe there are teams lower than us in the division, and my Millwall optimism tells me we will stay up. I would have to suggest Millwall are operating at their level...we are not geared to be a premiership or champions league team. That I can handle, I am realistic and not a glory hunter or celebrity watcher. Millwall is my team, I was raised in Peckham, I am proud that my boy supports Millwall, where as his cousins opted for the ,bright lights, of arsenal etc. Watching that last night was shameful,brings the club into disrepute, no character, no backbone, devoid of any notion of staunchness, or the qualities that arouse the memories of great times with Millwall past.....we never won the champions league, but there were great times.
    I am not a hateful man who would attack Lomas personally...but it is not working out. Millwall needs root and branch transformation. I can handle being a mid table championship team but do it with a bit of dignity.
    I would rather get relegated, but go down fighting, blood sweat and tears etc if I saw that I would still clap the players off the pitch.
    My abiding memory of last night's performance was Beevers giving up the chase for the second goal....watch it again, if he tried and failed thats one thing ...you could still work with his attitude. I would not know how to motivate a player who gave up as he did. Beevers was indicative of the collective attitude.
    Remember a couple of years ago we had two players sent off we lost five or six nil....cheered the players off the pitch for their attitude.

      @tonytowneronthewing: Beevers giving up the chase for the second goal...
      That's exactly my words as well. And he gave up several times, not just once... And we know that's not typical of him. But the sad thing is that he is not the only one, everybody looks like they gave up. It was really pathetic. Lomas OUT!

    The reason were in s*** is down to the clown who hired the idiot. Andy f****** ambler. Took to long to find a manager. No pre season tour. Gets us a sponsor & gives it to charity. Can't or won't get the fans in elland rd. So put him & lomas in a f****** service station in the middle of nowhere forever

      @block 28: choosing prostate cancer as our sponsor was a genuinely decent decision, not for reason as crass as PR but because it was the right thing to do. They deserve credit for that, I can't see the logic in your comment above at all.

          @block 28: That reply makes no sense. The queue of sponsors following Wembley was down to one. Given the choice Millwall chose to promote a charity rather than a company that leeches off the very people who live in and around the club's catchment area? The Board should be admired for this, not chastised.

          @block 28: You contradict your own argument and then get all upset, you poor lamb.
          Andy Ambler has done a lot of good in his time here and has defended this club in the courts, media, FA etc. etc. I'm sure he's not perfect but his record at Fulham stands up and he gets a lot of easy targeted criticism on here from people who mostly wouldn't know what a CEO is or does.
          Happy Xmas.

      @block 28: I've lost count of the times that Ambler has said that he wasn't part of the hiring process and the only other offer for sponsorship following the Wembley nonsense was a pay day loan company so for a club like ours to turn that down and give up sponsorship to an excellent charity is fantastic. Unfair criticism.

          @block 28: having a charity on the shirt raises awareness which will lead to more people donating money.

          I dare say a few fans may have even got themselves checked out and may have saved their lives in the process.

          There are many things to criticise our club for this season. Turning down a scummy pay day loan company for a charity is not one of them.

            @millwallbuilder: shirt sponsorship at Millwall is worth somewhere between 60-70k per year only, a drop in the ocean for a club with our outgoings but still a decent gestur in which we are all agreed. I will admit that I think AA is answerable for some dodgy transfervloan signings which he is hopefully roasting Lomas about this week. Also seems that a number of deadwood players were given long contracts which are only now expiring. On these points he is accountable.

            As for me, over 20+ years in my most recent job some of that reporting to a CEO so keep the insults coming, I really couldn't give a sh*t, I'll just add you to the increasing list of morons on here who result to personal digs to try to win an argument.

    Been going Millwall for about 30 years and can honestly say that was one of the worst performances by a millwall team I have witnessed, the casual support that was there will not be back and god knows what sky tv and there punters thought of us! With team we have, some good players for this level we should be doing better, so let's get to my point f*** off SL!!!

    Jackett got off to a bad start when he first joined; 4 wins from 17 games and 3 points from 8 away trips. Lomas needs time to do well the same as Jackett and it doesn't help with players who don't pass the ball on the floor, once Bailey is back and good defenders are bought we should be a mid-table side if not challenging for promotion.

        @timchimes: Robbo is past it, Beevers is playing s***, no creativity in the side; Trotter and Bailey are good passers of the ball but Trotter is to lazy to try and get the ball back. Bailey is the only one who can pass the ball and has a good work ethic/can tackle.
        Two new center backs is what we need, 42 goals conceded is an utter joke.

          @millwallstephane: you are right - I don't dispute what you say - bailey and trotter can get us results and a centre back who can control the ball and step up and make a pass in vital - - but lomas is not getting the best out of players - he is simply not intelligent enough - he said a few weeks go how pleased he was with trotter playing through injuries to help us beat Wigan - I presume trotter is carrying an injury again because he is playing like he did back end of last season - poor work rate, can't cover the ground - so trotter has played twice since , we have got no points from the games and risked further injury - so a waste of time - let him rest 2 weeks and have him playing well - play Moussi or whoever but play people who can give100% - lomas in not in control

    I have watched the Wall for over 50 years and seen some horrendous howlers, however, I can truly say that I am utterly ashamed of the performance I watched yesterday and struggle to recall a time when I felt more dispondant about the club.
    I am truly lost for words especially after listening to the pearls of wisdom which came out of Lomas mouth on the Football league show last night, how thick must his skin be?
    Ashamed, disappointed, demoralised, deflated, I could go on for ever and still not express my dissatisfaction of the events. I know it's not right but I am seriously considering a boycott until SL is replaced and improvements made, I really do have better things I could spend a fiver on!!

    Does anyone think SL will get the message? Or will he hang on until pushed? Only the fans can do it because the board nor the chairman have the courage as it means they were wrong in appointing him.

    Just to cheer you up, a joke i heard from the excellent comedian at the legends dinner at the den last week;
    Patient "Doctor do you help alcoholics"
    Doctor, "Yes"
    Patient, "Even on the NHS?"
    Doctor, *Yes of course".
    Patient "That's good, take me down the pub and buy me a pint then, I am skint".

      First thing i would like to say is SL f*** off back up to the spl becoz you honestly have no idea what you are doing...Last night game was liking watching kids football, none knew what they were doing...the ball was getting launched from defence to their defence all game long, when we did get it down we looked good but they was rare..it took both teams 41 mins to have a shoot and it came from our 2nd string right back? Robinson looks past it, Dunne has to go, Malone gives the ball away way to easy...Why didnt we get the ball to Woolford? we know when he is on the ball he can cause teams problems...again i agree with the person who made the comment about scott mcdonald being the only player last night to work their socks off...so steve lomas replaces him with easter? give alfie pavey ago....couldnt be anyworse then we already are.

        @eio-eio: in all this turmoil you still have to be reasonable - how can a 17 kid with no experience be put on the pitch - we have strikers who will score at this level - it is not a personnel issue up front - it is a case of them thinking that they have to score 3 goals virtually every week to win a game - - someone has to stop the goals going in - I do not think lomas can do that - if he could he would have by now - beevers dunne etc played in previous years when we kept a decent amount of clean sheets - it was not always attractive but sometimes it is necessary - here is his test - we play a Watford side who have been struggling to score most weeks - if they put 2 or 3 past us there is no hope

Xmas is now here no more money for Lomas please give him a P45 and make him walk, he becoming a West Ham Legend at our expense. The Bubble who took us down. Go get Martin Allen if you want a Hammer for a manager, or Temp put Neil Harris in charge if he got his ticket. Anything better than Lomas

        I also DO NOT WANT Allen, but it seems that our chairman doesn't know what it means to be Millwall. So I also suggested that when Lomas is sack, Harris should be put in charge at least he will get the fans backing, and we will know that a true Lion will give his all.

        it was so depressing driving home down the A2 I felt I never want to watch a Millwall side under Lomas again so the only way to get rid of him now seems to be a total empty Den for the next game. I only on a low wage and to watch that was an insult.

      Seriously Lomas is not to blame???? We are lazy unfit, poor passing, poor movement.....

      I have not seen us play a commanding game since Leeds even then we was not spectacular apart from goals.... If a team suffers from the basics the Manager should be screaming it into them on and on again and again..... Managers Job to motivate and our players were not motivated..... They are to blame firstly but he cant handle them.... so lets get a raw brutal manager to slap some life into the team....

      Anyone on here that still thinks Lomas is fit for the job is a radiating peenarse!!!!

    Cannot agree with the calls for Harris, surely he is playing a role behind the scenes, and some way responsible for what is going on....fail to see what else he could bring to the party as manager. If you want a name from the past I would prefer to bring back George Graham......Ian Dowie always seems to talk sense......I know the pair of them 'have history'......but let him without sin etc

    Congatulations to the 300+ who demonstrated last night.

    Like others here, I have no problem with Lomas as a person or where he's come from.

    But I do have a problem with a manager of our club who shows no technical nous and who is unable to motivate the players to play better than they did last night. We know that they can all do better than that. I think they may be telling us something. It's happened before.

    And yes as an earlier post said, they play far better when JB is around.

    Because they respect JB.

    Lomas has had the privilege of managing my club - our club - for a half a season. He earns more than most of us see in a long time. But there are many on here who demonstrate far better understanding of what needs to be done than he demonstrates when motivating and deploying the team.

    Millwall is not a club to learn at, as you go along. It requires Championship management experience.

    We have now seen enough of Lomas and his efforts.

    Mr Berylson, thank you for everything you've done for Millwall. Sadly we all make mistakes. I think - we think - it is time for you to stand up and say 'this is not to be, thank you for your efforts Steve. Goodbye.'

    Please don't give the position to Neil. He is a hero to many if not of us. Let him carry on learning.

    Millwall require a Championship manager now - now - not, when it is too late.

    I do not want to see all the good work of the last few years undone.

    Thank you.

    JB seems a charitable man so I can't see Lomas going before Xmas.
    This brings us to Watford and Doncaster to close out 2013.
    Wednesday and Yeovil have both taken the points at Vicarage Road, Charlton got a draw. They haven't won in ten and are plummeting down the table. They have a new Manager but this is an eminently winnable game.
    Doncaster have yet to play all bar two of the bottom half at home. They have already beaten QPR and Leicester at their place. However, they score few and concede loads so if we can manage one game where we can keep it tight at the back, another eminently winnable game.
    Four points could yet again buy Lomas more time and a good performance against Leicester at home could buy more still.
    If we don't get at least one win from these three games could Harris be in temporary charge against his hometown club?

      @mfcmike: Andy Ambler didn't appoint Lomas. He wasn't part of the interview process.

          @millwallbuilder: Who did I 'chew'. I disagreed and came back with a valid point. If you don't agree with it and have your own conspiracy theories that's just tough but try to come back with an intelligent argument rather than throwing your toys out of the pram. By the way, Wikipedia doesn't really count as research, just so that you know. Now go away.

      Thought he would have gone by now. No idea how to play in tricky conditions. Something was wrong with the players in the run up to KJ leaving. IT HAS NOT BEEN PUT RIGHT!

    I'm not convinced sacking the manager will solve all our problems. As many have said it seems a lot of them were already at the club when he arrived. On a totally separate matter, whoever gets Tim Sherwood as their manager when Spurs inevitably do the dirty on him will be a very lucky club.

    Unless I'm mistaken, Lomas is on a one year rolling contract which means we just have to pay him for the remaining months to get rid of. Harris is not ready yet. Has to be Holloway as he wil keep us up.

    Jb please act ASAP before people start blaming you and the board.
    I for one appreciate your work but a little piece of me can't help but wonder why after six successful yrs would the manager want to get the hell out as quick as he came in ? A lot has been said about the players he had well, if so then what the f*** are those same players still doing here. If it's true then at least get rid of em in jan, if not then perhaps you need to look a bit closer and spend a lot more time over this side of the pond cause it's plain to see they run the club a lot differently in front of you.
    My clubs going down the pan at a rate of nots and you are the only person who can put it right.
    Get rid of the manager and the few in the dressing room and get our club playing football.
    Cheers

    Yes, there something rotten in the state of Denmark alright!

    Previous proven championship players suddenly becoming lethargic and seemingly without direction.
    The manager moaning about the defence yet changing nothing, using more players than any other team, shipping goals, etc. etc.

    Sometimes things just don't click, that's happened here, the board now need to show some leadership and recognise that.

    Noone likes admitting making an error, no reflection of lomas's commitment and effort but we need a change NOW.

    We can't wait until relegation forces it on the board then years in the doldrums.

    I don't think lomas can be to blame. You have to spend money in football and we have a chairman that wont spend a penny. Every season we stay in this league will be a scrap for survival. Teams get relegated from the premiership and come down with £60mill + 4 years of parachute payments. maybe £100mill in total. Even mid table teams spend more than they can just to at least try. JB wont spend a penny because he doesnt give a sh*t. wont take the risk. he wont sack lomas. hes too tight to pay him off! jesus even alex ferguson couldnt make this team good. people say players like dunne and robinson are millwall through and through, yeah... Sh*it. i couldnt care less if someones been there 10 years, born in SE london and supported millwall since a kid. if they are sh*t then they shouldnt play. why cant people see this? We need an entire new fresh hungry squad but will never get one. why? because we will never pay to improve, and our youth system? jesus do we even have one? when i was a kid that was one of the best in the country. now we dont have a player in the first team under 30 it seems.

      @BRlion: He is completely to blame. Other clubs might get parachute payments and have chairmen with more dosh, but that doesn't mean that our eleven players can play as bad as they did on Saturday!
      Were you there on Saturday, because what I saw was a team completely disillusioned with the way the are playing. A team with no enthusiasm and a team with no idea of how to keep the ball in any way, let alone create a chance. LET ALONE WIN!
      Steve Lomas is playing a brand of football which would've been considered out of date in the 70s. There was one moment where Beevers could have put his foot on the ball and played it out from the back, but just f****** hoofed it like any fat c*** who can't run would.
      The defence looked like a shambles - the reason why? Like any snooker player will tell you, if you have time on the baize you will grow in confidence regardless if you're losing. Our defenders never have the ball at their feet, we never pass it around. We didn't even attempt to. So when the ball does come to their feet - usually a long ball from the opposition - they're panicky as f*** because they haven't had a touch for 20minutes. Conclusion - Lomas is completely to blame. We never played this badly under Jackett, nor Spackman, nor Tuttle or even f****** Claridge.

        @marknorman3: So the manager is not to blame because our fully capable professional footballers can't string a pass together or keep the ball??? Please your right in saying we are on lower budget ad other clubs have an advantage but let's have it right..... Yeovil came and passed the ball around us and dominated midfield like we were a joke.... Our players are capable of competing if they play at their best FACT we have seen it.... We have brought in some good players ad shown ambition for our clubs size and financial level..... Lomas is completely to blame for everything signings too.... They hired him backed him and let him sign players..... Lomas out my old Sunday manager was a better motivator

      @BRlion: Mcdonald, bailey,morrison,chaplow, all played in the prem all on big wages. The chairman has pushed the boat out this season so we can compete,we have players a plenty for each position, All we need to do is get rid of the pantomime donkey lomass and we will be fine.

        @Eightieswall: pushed the boat out? yeah we bought in a load of players that other teams in this league didnt want. for FREE..... and Big wages? you think 7-15k is a big wage in this league? half the supporters on here are out of touch with the finances involved with football. Yeah ok lets get rid off lomas.... but keep dunne, robinson, lowry, abdou, smith... i will get bored writing everyones name that is no good for this league. These players are 100% not good enough. who gives a sh*t if they give 100% on the pitch. if its not good enough. its not good enough. simple.

        oh and plenty in positions? yeah instead of having one or two prolific strikers, we have 4/5 sh*t ones. what it must be about 10 goals between them all season in the league. we could actually play with 100 at the back and still let goals in. no point having a midfield because they dont run forward to attack. dont run back to defend. oh and the ball just gets knocked over the top of them to a corner flag anyway.

          @BRlion: Mcdonald is on 20k plus a week there are a few more not far off of that.We have small gates so them wages hit us hard. Most teams are getting 20 odd thousand gates and can afford to pay large sums to players. It was lomas that bought these players that no one else wanted and it was ambler that gave these players contracts.So compared to other seasons and other teams financial power yes we have pushed the boat out. You forgot to mention the loan players lomas has got in on loan, midfielders and right backs that we dont need or play, more money wasted.

            @Eightieswall: No way in hell McDonald is on £20,000+ a week. He got a big payout from Middlesborough so is probably on about £12,000-£14,000.
