Portugal camp has sharpened the mind – Millwall defender

DEFENDER Alan Dunne has described Millwall's warm-weather training camp in Portugal as one of the most enjoyable weeks of his career.

The Lions, who fly home late on Friday afternoon, have been doing three training sessions a day as new boss Ian Holloway makes his mark on the squad.

And Dunne believes Millwall will return to England "fitter, stronger and sharper" after five days of intense fitness work in the Algarve.



"The hotel is fantastic and the facilities are unbelievable," Dunne said. "It's been extremely hard work but also one of the most enjoyable weeks in football I've ever had.

"We have learned a huge amount in a week and the new manager has been adding different things to our game. He's trying to improve everyone's fitness and overall game.

"The weather has been good, the pitches are decent, there is a gym, pool and a spa, the food is fantastic, but we haven't had much time to relax. It's been work and sleep.



"We had Wednesday afternoon off so that we could catch up on some rest, but then we went again on Thursday.

"We are working hard and enjoying being together. The team spirit is becoming really strong and there is a trust between the players and the manager.

"He has put three week's training into one. We will all be fitter premier-pharmacy.com/product-category/asthma/ when we get back, there is no doubt about that.

"I also think it has sharpened our minds because the first six months of the season were a bit erratic. Now things are structured, there's discipline and we're looking stronger.

"I really can't say that I've had a better week during my career, I've really enjoyed it."

Holloway has combined training sessions with classroom-based video analysis.

"We have been doing morning and afternoon sessions on the pitch and then workshops with the manager in the evenings," Dunne explained.

"There has been video analysis and question and answer sessions.

"It's been really interesting. The manager has been showing us some of the things he knows and every player is getting something out of it. I can't praise it enough.

"He's shown us how other teams have done certain things and what he wants us to work towards. He's studied the best teams in the world and wants to pass on that knowledge.

"He's got certain methods which have allowed us to train at a match tempo without making us run around a track. He's getting the running out of us in every session.

"We've been using heart monitors to make sure every player is working as hard as possible. If we had a game tomorrow, I would be scared to play against us. We're looking strong."

    This is amazing we have a manger who knows how to run a football club and he is showing the players tactics and highlighting how other teams play, and these players are getting something out of it.
    Makes you think what most of them have been doing all there playing careers and they have been worked hard by the manager and coaches (good) as some of them may be having to work hard for a living soon away from the game, lets hope these 5 days translate into 3 points on Tuesday night.

    If the effort put in against Ipswich on saturday is going to be bettered,and more skill,s added then other team,s wont want to come to millwall,i am still full of praise for the way we played then,and if that performance is matched for the rest of the season i will have no complaint,s.
    What us fan's have to be careful of is expecting to much,mistake's are going to be made so it is imperative that we do not get on any player's back,so if a mistake is made we have to wipe our mouth's and just accept it.
    As fergie said to the man unt fan's"your job is to support your new manager".
    Our job is to support IH and the team no matter what.
    I cant' wait untill sheffield game on tuesday night.

        @Barnlion: I agree with you barnlion,unfortunatly there is a few of us who cant see further than their nose's,or see what has been achieved in a short space of time.
        I won't go into it but one so called fan had a dig at IH in the pub on sunday,mind you three of us soon put him in his place.

          @jim1222: Jim, that's sad to hear, there are still a few of the lads who hark back to the days that we still cant live down and it still damages the club, as the tabloid's love to roll out all the previous misdemeaners, But how can Ollie warrent that only been here 5 minutes and as far I as I can see only moving the club in the right direction.
          Its been said by many on this forum but only time can tell, but it Ollie is doing all the right things and instilling the players with self believe and playing the way he wants I am sure we will progress, maybe not the prem but I would take a top half in this Div for starters, at least there are a few of us Jim who think the same.

    Did not Lomas take them to a 'Boot Camp' during pre-season? Never heard much feedback from that and I can't think of any player saying they really enjoyed it and feel fitter. What actually did Lomas do and to make it worse wasted JB's money?

      @AireLys: I recall Lomarse was going to take the team on a European preseason training session, yet another promise that never came off. Kenny at least took the team over to Ireland preseason where the teams he played were mid way through the Irish league season so were or should have been much fitter than us. So imo our season starts against Sheffield Wednesday and I WILL BE THERE. COYL.

      @AireLys:
      That was a Scottish style boot camp, players were rationed to 10 cans of McEwan's and only 2 deep fried mars bars a day.

      It's called the Rab C Nesbit academy.

    I like what i see and here from Holloway and don't get me wrong i think he's a potential great appointment. BUT, i think we need to reign it in a bit don't you, at least until the end of this season or at least if or when we secure championship status. I recall a lot of people on here was saying similar things about the Lomas appointment when he started bringing in the type of players that he did. "Best squad we have had" etc, etc and look what we ended up with, a pile of vermin s***.....

    I don't want o p*** on anyone's parade but as Millwall fans we should of learnt by now to reserve judgement until the manager and the players start producing performances like the Ipswich win, week in week out and get us out of the s*** we are in.

    This Portugal trip will only be deemed a success if we avoid relegation..... IMHO

      Good point @Windy:
      For me, it's all about the players now. They've let themselves, the management, the club and most importantly the fans down with there inept performances this season, largely down to them not keeping themselves fit enough.
      There's nowhere for them to hide anymore. They either shape up or f*** off, it's that simple.

      @jim1222: I know hindsight is a great thing Jim, but on reflection do you still think those that wanted lomas out were justified in their criticism?
      And forget about previous links or hair colour - I personally never criticised either. Would appreciate a response.

        @bonnie1272: Bonnie i never did think those people were justified in the way they went about slaughtering lomas just because he was ginger or the west ham link.All they did was give the disruptive players ammunition to bring lomas down,and i could never forgive those fan,s or player,s for doing so,as it helped put us in a bad position.
        On the west ham thing,we talk about Millwall legends which their are many,but in my years, of supporting millwall,the two at the top are kitch and harry cripps,both honoured by the club,the kitchener stand and harry's bar,i have asked many times of the anti west ham brigade {i bet some drink in harry,s bar] why do they did not s*** off crippsy or his memory,after all did he not come from west ham and did he not have west ham play us for his testimonial. I have never been answered by one of them.
        If you ask me in hindsight would i sooner have holloway than lomas i would choose holloway,but we have to remember at the time of slagging off of lomas holloway was not available,and it was more by accident that we got holloway,and remember holloway said himself that certain player,s did not give lomas any help,had those player,s been more professional then we would be higher in the league than we are now ,but then we would not have holloway,so you pay your money and you take your choice.
        Bonnnie you are one of the more pragmatic poster,s on NAD and i appreciate you asking for my reply,i hope this answer,s your question.
        further on the anti west ham thing just a few name,s to conjure with,burnett,leslie,dear,bond,s goddard, i dont remember these people getting stick for being ex west ham.

          @jim1222: @jim1222: It's funny how things turn out- I think every wall fan would've picked Holloway over Lomas, if the situation had been a matter of choice at the start of the season- and we've seen in last few weeks how Lomas wasn't up to the job... But I've still got some respect for Lomas and I reckon he was pretty unlucky during his time here. e.g. Key players out through injury and suspension- (poor refereeing) and some terrible game changing decisions made by refs that has cost us probably in the region of about 8-10 points.. Plus the bloke's already a few goals down for being a west ham s***! On the subject of him being WH, I think it took guts to come to the den- and on the flip slide, I bet he lost a few mates up the backstreets of delhi for coming to us! But anyway, thank f**k things have turned out like they have in getting IH- and BIG thanks to JB, AA and the board for salvaging the best out of a s**t situation. Also, hope both Jims are down the den on Tuesday- singing from the same hymn sheet..... MIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLLL!!!! COYL

      @Windy: you are right to have reservations, but there is a gulf in class between lomas and holloway. I think everyone can see that. And even if we dont get out of this particular dogfight, at least we have a manager who, with a full season ahead, could gain us promotion back to the championship.

      @Windy: Could Not agree more. Ollie does seem to be making the right noises and decisions but the proof in the pudding will be the results. In all walks of life it always seems the a new manager begins his tenure by slagging of the work of the previous manager. Whilst most would agree that Lomas was well out of his depth, yet if we don't get immediate improvement will we still be behind Ollie and will Ollie remain for the challenge. Words are easy to say, it is results that Ollie will be judged on. Having said all this Ollie does epitomised the Millwall Spirit and I for one really want him to succeed.

    Well yes mr Dunne, what have you been doing all this time at Millwall, if this was the best training session of your life? Sorry mate, you are one of the players we want out, now. Heaven knows how some of you got away with it. But, Not any longer.

I know we have had a few RB's and he's still there but the last few years, months, weeks etc he has been crap, a liability and the sooner he retires and passes his badges and trains 'Billy Ballbag FC the better.

That decision has to be taken by IH now not "we" > Everyone must get behind the manager and team now if Millwall are to climb the table and go places.

        @Peckhamlad: I hate to remind you, Sir, but we got right behind Lomas and the team, right from the start. Even went to the preseason friendlies like Crawley town etc to support the team. We have seen what they have done to Millwall FC. A new dawn has broken, and luckily we have some new players.

          @Jim28: I put him in the same class as Harry Cripps and Rhino but I strongly disagree about comparing him with Kitch.
          Kitch was not the most skilful of players with the ball at his feet but neither was any CH in those days but very little got past him on the ground or in the air, he commanded the penalty area and was consistant for many seasons. At one point Liverpool were taking an interest in him. I don't think any of that could be said of Dunne.

    It also goes to show that some professional footballers forget what a privileged position that they are in. Most of us would probably sell our own Nan to pull on a millwall shirt and take the field. Keeping yourself fit enough is the bare minimum expectation. I blame the McDs at the end of Calmont Rd.....Too much of a temptation for some of em.

    So we've done some hard training and watched video analysis. It sounds very high tech but , I think it's just modern football. I bet we've been a laughing stock amongst the managing/coaching fraternity. Ollie will be a success here I have no doubt and I do think we'll catch other clubs up both on and off the pitch. Starting Tuesday night against Sheff Weds

    Would not like to think where we would be now if Lomas was still in charge,Ollie comes in and he can tell what needs to be done right from day one that is the difference between a top manager and one that is still learning the game.I feel 3 pts coming on when we play Wednesday on Tuesday .

    If whoever on here say they don't like dunney, or whoever, fair enough. That's your opinion, but I get proper p***** off when I read how we " all want dunne out " when we don't. Some on here like me like dunne and want him here, I don't care if whoever don't agree, it's all about opinion.

        @bonnie1272: I am with you lads as well, I reckon Dunne has it in him to adapt his game and play a more attacking role. His first touch is generally good, he is a natural athlete(even when on the p***, which to be honest he needs to cut out!) and his experience means he reads the game well. He needs to work out how he can attack and still remain defensively solid but I reckon he can do that with the right coaching. Last of all, he gives his all every game.

        @bonnie1272: @bonnie1272: pardon me, but the WE is the 12 of us who sing and cheer the lions from the dockers TV end. You all must hear us all the time, cause we are joined by about another 25 others. So please don't try to change the issue. WE would love to meet and greet anyone who would like to meet us, especially our friend Peckhamlad.

      @BUSHWACKER14: I pity any player bothered enough to read this site.

      At some point this season someone has demanded that all of the players individually, without exception be sold or moved on.

      No wonder they have or had little confidence is it?

      The only opinion that matters is Holloway's, so let's let him decide who he wants to keep or move on.

        @bonnie1272:
        This season the players have not played for the shirt and short changed all of us and have deserved most of the critiscm I feel.
        I also believe that although we all have different opinions people are generally pretty fair in their observations on this site ,even if we are wrong which all of us will be sometimes.
        It is a forum after all Bonnie so people are going to talk about what players they think should stay or go.
        It's all really healthy in my humble opinion. The only time it's not is when someone gets personal but thankfully that doesn't happen too much.
        Anyway roll on Tuesday Bonnie and I look forward to hearing your song and joining in.
        Cheers.

            I think that there is no doubt Jim that the fans are behind Holloway.
            I dont think we will get relegated but if we did I dont think that many would be calling for his head either which can only help.
            We are a united family again Jim and doesn't it feel fantastic.
            Happy happy days.

      Bigger blokes dont nip about like little blokes. He still covers a lot of ground. It's his size and style that is misleading. There is an arguement that he could do more but to say that he does not run like you say is very harsh and not correct in my opinion.

    Looking back over the matches/results Lomas was in charge for- there were a handful of games where you could say we were utterly s**t. But there were a lot of games (against good opposition) where I thought we played really well, got robbed by s**t refs and lost by fine margins.
    Now that we've seen the fundamental flaws in the way Lomas did things e.g. lack of Fitness/game plan - it's amazing we got the results we did and aren't in the bottom 3. So the way I see it, Dunneys report is quite exciting -- What can we get out of a team with these fundamentals in place?? Plus all the other positives that IH and his staff bring.... plus a more united den crowd...(Pro Lomas and Lomas hater wars!)... What? You ask?
    Champions f**king league football in 3 years time is what!!!! Maybe not, but staying up could be a safe bet! COYL!

    Look you lot Dunne is Millwall he may be past his sell by date but Millwall he is. Think Cripps, Possee, Weller, Kitchner, Stepney, Dawes, how far do we go back? Julian, Broadfoot. Holloway understands us. Our most sucessfull period was when the manager understood what as fans we expected. A team that gives 100% we will lose games to better sides but we will beat better sides. Thats football This man understands us and he will bring in a couple of players to enhance what we already have. Look at the difference last Saturday every one of us there understood how important is was and we saw a propper Millwall team supported by propper Millwall fans.

      @hernebaylion: Hernbay you are right regarding Dunny being Millwall but it comes to us all when we can no longer do it, I would say this is now that time for Alan, as for him being compaired to your list, the only one like him being a one club man is Barry Kitch all the others had at least one other club as well as millwall, so he trumps them.

      But it is not just Alan Dunne there will be if Ollie weilds the axe several other squad players who will be leaving Millwall before next Friday.

      @SpiceIsland: I don't think hardly anyone doubts his commitment, it is just that he is lacking in the skill and discipline that is required in the Championship these days.
      He is useful as back up but does get caught out of position too much and does not have the pace to recover.

    Just my opinion but Alan Dunne is a grade A Bellend. Just because you don't like the manager isn't an excuse to not try your best & he openly told Lomas he wanted him gone. No professionalism and with egos such as Dunne, Lomas was never going to do well. Once proclaimed himself to be the best right back in the Championship. Jog on.

      IT APPEARS THAT NOW THAT WE HAVE GOT OVER THE DANNY SHITTU
      IS "TOO SLOW, AND IS DIVISION 1 OR 2 PLAYER" .............[ DANNY S HAS PROVED
      HIS WORTH VERY QUICKLY TO THE MANAGER, THE CLUB AND THE WON OVER THE
      CRITICS ON THIS BOARD..................
      SOME OF WHO KNOW LITTLE OF PROPER FOOTBALL- SKILLS, IT APPEARS ].
      NOW, ITS ALAN DUNNE'S TURN ............... WELL AFTER "ALL SAID AND DONE" IN MY
      OPINION HAVING WATCHED A.DUNNE LOADS OF TIMES, HE DOES SEEM TO BE COMING
      TO THE END OF THE LINE, AS A MILLWALL PLAYER.
      WE ALL MUST THANK HIM FOR HIS EFFORTS, BUT LIKE MANY SKILL - FUL PLAYERS BEFORE
      HIM..................WE MUST NOT ALLOW "EFFECTIONATE LOYALTY" BLIND OUR JUDGEMENT !
      SO, SORRY AS IT SEEMS, MANY, MANY GOOD SUPPORTERS OF MILLWALL FC THINK THAT
      HE MAY HAVE TO "MOVE ON" TO ANOTHER CLUB [ IF HE WANTS TO PLAY ON ].
      OTHERWISE, HE CAN RETIRE AND LIVE ON THE GOOD WAGE SAVINGS, THAT HE MUST HAVE PUT
      AWAY, OVER THE YEARS.
      WELL DONE A.DUNNE AND THANKS FOR THE PAST GOOD DISPLAY.

    I think calling a player who has given us years of wearing the shirt names is not on, and just mentioning dunne as the only player wanting lomas gone,is unfair.there were at least half a dozen and all senior players,the changes mr lomas implemented were not only not accepted by the players but by most of us who witnessed his tactics at home and away.mr lomas was untried and untested and this added to his own downfall.

    I have seen that now, more and more people are now being attracted to cameras and the subject of images. However, being photographer, you will need to first expend so much time period deciding which model of camera to buy as well as moving store to store just so you can buy the least expensive camera of the trademark you have decided to decide on. But it would not end at this time there. You also have to take into consideration whether you can purchase a digital photographic camera extended warranty. Many thanks for the good guidelines I acquired from your web site.
