Odds tumble on Holloway becoming next Millwall manager

BOOKMAKERS have slashed the odds on Ian Holloway becoming Millwall's next manager after a flurry of bets over the weekend.

Holloway is now as short as 1/6 to join the Lions, who sacked Steve Lomas on Boxing Day.

Ex-Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones is the second favourite – but he is miles behind Holloway in the betting with odds of 7-1.



Holloway, who stepped down as Crystal Palace manager last October, recently expressed an interest in taking over at Wigan, who instead appointed Uwe Rosler.

He told BT Sport at the time: "I am back and ready to go. Sometimes you have to go and make some decisions in your life.

"I don't really have to take those decisions. As a manager you just have a briefcase and you are willing to travel.



"It is getting the right chairman. I want to play a certain way and help a club progress."

NewsAtDen readers voted Holloway as the man they wanted to replace Lomas last month.

    We need to be realistic. We don't have enough time to revamp the squad. We need to spend whatever money we have knocking around on a manager who can promise us one thing - SAFETY. We can't afford to go down with the lacklustre squad we have; we'd struggle in L1. Please board, just appoint someone who can keep us up and then we can address all our problems in the off season. If that man is Holloway, so be it. Just pay the price for the mess you, yourselves have created. You owe it to us, the fans, who are still 110% behind our beloved club.

    And get the player's asses in gear. They should all follow Jimmy's example. Probably one of the worst footballer's in the league, but gosh does he put in a shift, that's why I love him, does not stop working!

    Oh please let this happen. If he doesn't keep us up I couldn't blame the board for appointing him, he ticks all the boxes on paper at least.

    Please be true... Regardless of what anyone thinks about him, he has promoted 2 side from this division. He knows what's needed, even if that's a long way of atcths moment. We as fans need to get behind the new nam and the team to get us out if this mess. Staying in the division is a must for Millwall and I think he is the man to do that job for us..... Coyl

      @harryfabian: actually I watched West Ham today and it cheered me up no end,
      After watching the highlights from yesterday any manager that comes will need a magic wand, I won't name any names but some of the players need to take a good look at their futures because there isn't a lot of good jobs on the market,
      If you like cricket and Millwall when does this Happy New year start ?.

    Ian holloway is experienced and knows the championship inside out as he got blackpool and palace promoted. He would easily get my vote, definitely keep us up. We also need a manager who is tough to get rid of the players that dont care and are basically just crap. Holloway would be perfect.

    This quite simply is the only real choice as far as I'm concerned. He knows the championship, he can instil team spirit & if he can weave some magic & keep us up he's a good bet to take the club onwards & upwards. We have half a season to sort this out so get behind the boys for the next 4 months & lets be talking about our 20 point lead at the top of the league this time next year! MILLLLLLLLLLWALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!

    I'd be happy with that "if" it happens.
    pls wall if it's him then pls appoint tomorrow so he has at least the best part of a week to see what he's working with.
    I know he's not everyone's cuppa but we've had worse. We're still 1 point above the drop so has a foundation to work with. The only incentive is to stay up nothing more.
    Deal with the rest in the summer when we know where we are. I'm sure bomber will assist until the summer but we are in desperate need of a fitness coach and 3 or 4 players. we haven't much money left so maybe one of the assets will have to go to help out financially.
    Good luck ollie if the jobs yours

    Disaster written all over this appointment, we don't need a media friendly over rated manager to get us out of this mess, we need somebody else who has something to prove and is trying to build a reputation in management and not somebody living off of a short period of success with one club. Even in his Mirror column today he is blaming the January transfer window for Blackpool's relegation. Nothing to do with his tactical ineptness of course.

      @lion.ie: we just tried that lion and failed miserably.
      I dont think we can afford that right now lmo.
      look into 80% of managers and there's a very mixed bag, at some point they nearly all get the sack and flop at some club the one's that dont get the sack are in a very small minority and who are a million miles away from what we will ever be. There is not one manager out there that will please all of us at the same time. Who ever gets it we have no choice but to get behind him and push him over the line cause right now sir fergie or marinho will struggle with this bunch.

        @lukesmithmfc: Lomas didn't work out so does that mean that every young potential manager will be the same? Of course not. All we are doing here is following the same tired old model that every short sighted Chairman does and feeding the managerial merry go round.

            @Eightieswall: He took over a team that was flying and scraped over the line thanks to his first win in ten games against Peterboro. 45 points from 32 games last season in a team with Murray and Zaha! He took over Leicester and QPR mid season in this league and they both got relegated. Even his rep at Blackpool was built on one good run of results that helped them scrape into the play-offs. As I've said, people need to take the blinkers off and look at his actual record.

          @lion.ie: who is good enough to please all our fans.
          my 1st choice has always been warnock, but holloway is more than capable of doing a job if WE let
          him get on with it.
          if we fans carry on like this then we'll end up with nothing but non league football in 5 yrs cause no one will want to manage us.
          so many have rightly had a moan up on here this season but if its an experianced championship manager to be next in then surely thats a good thing.
          You keep saying how bad he is and his last two jobs he failed, but, he failed in the premiere league with them NOT IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP. You ask the fans of both blackpool and palarse and see what they think. Both struggling at bottom end of championship and promoted to premiere league in the same season, l'm sure they wouldnt swap it for anything else. Blackpool had smaller ground, smaller gates, smaller squad and smaller budgets than us and I'm sure they'd pick holloway over ince all day. They all trip up in the end it's the way it is, in our case there isn't a single person out there who wouldnt get stick cause of where he's from, who he's managed, who played for, the colour of his socks the time of day he has a s*** how fat he is the colour of his hair. Dont get me wrong for someone else I fall into that category it's the way we are but I'd take holloway over some rookie who hasnt managed in the championship in the position we are in and if we go down I'd be confident he'll give it a damn good go of coming straight back up as he's a name young players in the lower leagues will want to play for.
          just my opinion lion thats all.

            @lukesmithmfc: Luke, you need to check your facts on his takeover of both Palace and Blackpool. Palace were in the top three and flying and he nearly screwed it all up, the few wise Palace fans will tell you the same. He made a 14 point improvement on Blackpool, which is not to be sniffed at but not mind blowing either.

      @Adsy77777: A good call Adsy, also what a lot of people fail to take account of is that this group of players we have have failed to put it a consistant run of form under the last 3 managers starting 12 months ago under KJ. With Peterbourough keeping us up last term.

      I was not a big fan of SL but on paper at least we look like we have a good side, so even if the players dont fancy the manager you would think that there own professional pride would motavate them into winning not every game, but more than they have in the last 12 months. Why have not the senior pros sorted it out not just for the Lions but for there own future within the game.

      If it does happen to be Holloway lets hope he has alredey started looking at tapes of us to see what is obvious to the fans whats wrong with the team weeek after week, if this goes wrong I would think JB may cut his losses and pull the plug on his investment in SE London, as any future development would be more atractive in that area with out the new den still being there, I hope I am completly wrong on this one but JB is in bussiness and not from this area.

    The best manager in the world wouldn't save us, if the team don't have any gonads, confidence, spirt, and couldn't give a t*** about wall, Hope Holloway or who ever takes over, can change that first, then I'm sure results will follow.

          @Block 8: It's a brave step but Claridge really wants the job and is qualified. Even if he couldn't keep us up he, or somebody like him, are a better bet for sticking with us long term to see the job through. Holloway get's us relegated and he'll head for the exit as soon as a bigger budget is waved at him and we are back to square one.

    Warnock was my choice, but i would have no problem with Holloway. As regards his problems with pressure, i think its a different pressure a Millwall. We have no visions of grandeur, just expect our team to make some effort and look like they have a clue what they are doing. Then when we've got something to get behind we can make The Den intimidating again and the results will follow.

        @lukesmithmfc: Whoever is appointed he has to be his own man and do things his way, without interference. All of us have opinions and disagreements but I hope he will be left to get on with the job he has to do, results will not show for a while and we must respect that.
        If it is Holloway then give the guy a break from the start, stop telling him what to do and give him space to breath. I include myself in that, Millwall has to move on and hopefully turn the corner.

    I feel it is time we got our act together and got a manager in now, and stop this rot . Bomber &Fitz are trying their best to keep things going but their hands are tied when players just can't be bothered to play for the pride and shirt of our great club, and most of all for the supporters who keep this club going and pay there wages. MILLWALL FOR EVER

    I hope we appoint him, agree maybe defensively he wont tighten us up aswell as other managers but he will get us playing much better and 110 heart, no doubt. he has got balls to change it up and if he thinks one of the younger players deserves to play he will play them. Lastly i like him hes mad and i think the players will want to play for him.

    It'll be a miracle if they save us. I dont rate Holloway for rescuring a club, dont thinks he's ever rescued a club at the bottom from relegation.
    If he does get the job hes got his work cut out big time I'd hae to back him BUT!!!!!!!!! 🙁

    I liked him when he was in charge of Blackpool and the very least he is proven in this division unlike SL who was a big risk and stupid one which is clear for all to see. I just hope whoever gets the job JB will give proper funding that, imo, was wasted in signings so far (incl AA with Shittu and Hoyte - even Easter I don't rate). Without some funding any manager will struggle so please don't tie one arm behind their back to start with and give us a real chance of getting out of this mess JB et al.

    Football is a funny old game, when lomas got the job people on here got slaughtered for not wanting an inexperienced manager and we were told to get behind him and give him a chance. Now most seem happy and are feeling positive about Holloway an experienced manager the pro lomas brigade are being negative.

    Look here ,sod the the bookmakers , give the job to someone who really wants the job, the man has to be Steve Claridge, he has expressed his interest in the job , he is not out of work he could keep out of it but he is interested, don't crumble to someone who just wants a job, give it to Steve who would have his heart mind and soul in the Millwall managers job, hope to see you soon Steve at the New Den.

          @lion.ie: if we appoint an interim until end of the season and we go down then I'm with you lion someone like edinburgh could be a good choice but not now not while we're struggling and in need of experiance at this level. Its not my decision at the end of the day and if JB decides thats the rd to go down then hey ho, but my hope is he doesnt not until the summer at least.
          Descipline has been a massive issue this season lion but rather than the manager or at this present time lack of one sorting it out I'd like to think JB has ripped them to bits today after what they've done this season. Who ever gets it if the players cant show them any respect then they should be bannished but then if the fans are making a mug out of the manager how can we expect the players not to ? Ill feeling breeds ill feeling and right now there's an awful lot of it.

            @lukesmithmfc: Luke, always respected your opinion and your match reports were the ones I looked for all these miles away. My opinion differs on the whole experience thing, I think it's a red herring. I like Claridge for the job simply because he wants it so badly, not for the job itself, but for the opportunity and because he feels he has an affiliation with us, he knows our club.
            Best of luck to whomever gets it.

      @Millwall 77: To be clear, I'm not writing him off, if he gets the job I hope he is a sparkling success. I was the same with Lomas although I was dubious and I didn't get caught up in the hype like most on here. My opinion is that he is that Holloway is the wrong man for the job based on his ACTUAL record rather than any perception largely created by himself through the media. I don't want Warnock either even though I have complete faith in him being able to keep us up. I can't stand the man, another media darling. My opinion is based on what I feel is right for us, we have never had big time charlie managers, even Wise had a lot to prove. Most of our best times have been with managers that grew with us and IMO I think that's our best policy.

    Holloway can keep us up and I reckon he won't take any bullsh!t from anyone! Meaning the disruptive c5nts killing this club can change now or go! I know which one I'd prefer atm! And besides, apart from holloway( who we don't even know we've got yet!) who else would take over? None do the names I've heard are good enough to keep us up! The thought of league 1 football kills me and I can't see us coming straight back up either! Come on 'wall! Ffs we fans deserve something to cheer about!

    Nobody can be sure whether he is the right man for the job but we need a larger than life character to sort things out & he is that,love him or loathe him,he is a personality & that might just be what we need right now.

    He SHOULD also command some respect with his experience.

    Warnock or Holloway in that order for me if they are going for someone with Championship experience.
    If it was somebody without that experience then I would choose Claridge all day long.
    Any others mentioned I would personally be disappointed with.
    Considering that 13 - 14 thousand turned up for Lomas's first league game and that was in the holiday season is it possible that we could all do the same for the new boss. Would love to see it.

    Well all of the leftover chocolates are eaten and all the leftover booze is gone so now my new year resolutions kick in. All posted out today and my first resolution was to get off this forum for 2014. All the best to Lukesmith, Adsy, Glyngo and Nickola, hope 2014 is good for you and the Lions, I'll be checking in to see what's being said but it really means fk all in the end. JB, AA, the Board, the new manager and the players are the only opinions that count. Keep up the good work Aldo, still the best site for Millwall news.
    All the best to Bob the boxing builder and his ilk, one day you lads will put a worthwhile comment on here with a lucid argument to back it up, then again.....
    My last word on Holloway, when something bad happens at the circus they usually send in the clowns.........
    MFC Lion - if Ollie gets the job and keeps us up I'll break my resolution just to come on here and take the 'I told you so' on the chin!

    Whoever is appointed he has to be his own man and do things his way, without interference. All of us have opinions and disagreements but I hope he will be left to get on with the job he has to do, results will not show for a while and we must respect that.
    If it is Holloway then give the guy a break from the start, stop telling him what to do and give him space to breath. I include myself in that, Millwall has to move on and hopefully turn the corner.

    I'm so happy that I haven't heard any bullsh!t about his connections with palace! At this moment in time I couldn't give a f*** who any manger is connected to! Wetspam or the ultras! Let's just back holloway because Monday or Tuesday he will be announced as our new manger! Back this one and we'll get results.. Well I'm f***!ng praying we do! A draw at huddlesfield and nothing but 6 points against Yeovil and Sheffield will do! COYL

    I'd be happy with this appointment, ex Nigel or not he's an experienced and proven championship manager who'll command respect from this unmotivated, passionless sack of s***.

    He gets my vote. But if we go down with him as manager, it would hardly be his fault and I would hope he is given the assurance from the board (and short sighted fans) that, in this event, he is able to continue working next season.

    Managers these days dont get the time to build for the future..fergie was given 4 years to get it right..2day well i'am sorry alex but you would be out of a job years ago...thats why its more important to get the right man for the club.. So think & then think again JB.& AA before you make your decision this time

    Wow a lot of comments to read through, let the board learn from there mistakes and lets get behind the next manager. If we stay up this season, then in my eyes its job done.. no point moaning what should have been done.

    IMO i think Holloway would be a great manager to see us to safety, plenty of experiance and understands the championship well..

    Needs to sell McDonald, Shittu and Feeney for a start then try to get Nicky Maynard on loan or Waghorn, a new centre half and a new Right-Winger.

    As I said previously the new manager whoever he may be has to be given a clean slate as to how he manages the side, he does not need advice on who to buy, remove or change as some people are already doing! The manager is paid to do that job and is hardly going to take notice of comments on here. he has not even walked through the door yet but some are already telling him what he should do!
    Just hope we get someone in place before Saturday.

    Peckhamlad, if the new manager is stupid enough to read Millwall related forums let alone act upon the advice they carry then he is not the manager we need. And, if the team is trained, picked or the club take serious note of what is suggested on here or other platforms then we really are in trouble!

    Afternoon all I have been reading the comments on this site for over a year now and never felt the need to write one myself. But holloway has to be the biggest over rated manager there is he isn't up to the job mentally and what really has he done??? Why isn't anyone wanting Markus babbel or someone with a footballing brain? Yes holloway is a character but that is all he is and he left his last job why?? I am guessing there will be a lot of you who will disagree but if he is a success I will eat my words. Many thanks have a good day!

    who ever gets the job has one hell of a challenge on their hands with this bunch of players. If Neal Harris cant get them playing then I dont know who can. An experianced manager is a must and Holloway fits the bill. We must be realistic and back the new manager even if things dont improve in the short time. Should the worst happen and we go down then we need to stabalise with this manager and hopefully bounce back at the first attempt. To be honest I enjoyed fighting it out at the top of L1 nore than relegation battles in the Championship

    Terry what would Markus babbel do compared to SL? they are both young and still learning the game and have had little success since turning into managers.. .. Millwall is in need of experianced manager. Holloways profile and knowledge of the game is what Millwall need right now rather then someone turning up and saying "i need time". Time is not on our hands, we need games to win to avoid relegation.. that is millwalls task now..

    Lion.ie I fully support your opinion on holloway his not what people believe him to be, an I would have clarigde, for some to be knocked back and still want the job without sour taste has a lot of character, and some of the story's in the game about him are millwall all over.

    It's like a load of kids watching the tele and wanting what's on the tele the most. Moaning pair of fools holloway and warnock wouldn't do us any good.

    We need an experienced manager, someone who wants to see the contract out not use us as a stepping stone to somewhere else in 6-12months time. The job here is a big one we are failing from the top all the way to the bottom, we have had poor training, poor conditioning and tactically we dont have a plan A yet alone a plan B. We are poor at the back yet we are just 6 months away from losing Forde for nothing, how can we allow that when he is playing for his country, who ever is running the club has not got a clue about how to manage the club. We need a manager to manage the team selecet players and ensure that the tactics get us results, we need a chief exec who will ensure that we dont lose quality players for peanuts and we keep players that we can afford. Finally we need a chairman who is going to manage his board and look after the best interests of the club and not his own pocket. JB is not a stupid man he understands how a sporting business works so why cant he get it right over here, Andy Ambler is a bean counter not a football man, we need the strongest manger out there who is available to us and then allow him to manage the team as he sees fit. Then JB can manage the off fielkd activities not put up faceless non execs who have no idea how to manage a football team. We are a laughing stock if we continue down this road, if you think we can drop a division and come back up take a look at coventry, swindon, bradford, wolves and they all came from the premiership so they had finances unlike us but we have the same thing in common with them under performing members of the board. My suggestion to them is buy a copy of football manager and learn how to manage a football club. Now anything less than that is a kick in the balls to every millwall fan and shows that they really dont give a t*** about our club. Remember every team that goes down goes down for two reasons, 1. the team are poor. 2. and most important is that the board and the fans are divided, JB if you continue to seperate yourself from us the fans you will not have a business left to own and we will not have a club anymore.

    The posters on here are split between the Holloway 'Yes'/'No' and I am sure Holloway must be thinking 'what the fu5k am I getting into' but there isn't much choice out there and he seems as good as any we could get. I don't agree with the shouts for Claridge, although I loved him as a Wall player, and the thought of having Jones, Edinburgh or Megson fills me with dread. However, we should give whoever it is some support, as it will take some hard work to turn this bunch of s*** players into a good team. I wish the new Manager all the best

    We sure ain't in a buyers market here!

    If any applicant has been watching the team, they have a massive task.

    There seems to be discontent and a lack of motivation, the rumour mill is saying that the salary structure has gone to pot and that's causing ructions.

    So whoever is game enough to take it on, it's the last chance saloon for us and them.

    Interesting times,

    Comments on here are divided as to whether Holloway is a suitable choice or not. The fact is that JB got his fingers burnt in choosing Lomas and didn't want to make the same mistake again. This time he has gone for an experienced Championship manager with lots of connections in the game who has a chance of doing some wheeling and dealing before the transfer window closes at the end of January. He is as good a choice as any and I would hope that his appointment gives us a fighting chance of avoiding relegation.

    It has to be Smeagol.. I'm happy about that. A manager with some clout and respect and good knowledge of the league. He will attract scouts therefore players will want to play and fight for their places.
