Poll: Will Millwall avoid relegation from the Championship?

DEFEAT at Barnsley on Saturday severely dented Millwall's survival chances, but there is still plenty of football to be played this season.

The Lions have 14 games to secure their Championship status for another year and boss Ian Holloway remains "totally and utterly" convinced of survival.

But do you share his optimism?

      @BUSHWACKER14: Why are we all surprised that we are fighting at the bottom? In my life time we have constantly been a yo-yo side and thats how it will always be. Remember listening to Danny Baker a while back and it hit the spot. No matter how much we hope and want to be a premier league side and be the best that we can it just doesn't happen at a club like Millwall. I love my club and always will do to the day I die, following us home and away up and down the country (I've been Burnley, Blackburn, Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley this year alone). And not matter what I'll be there, I think we will stay up but fans need to be realistic and look at our situation. We are a small fish in a big pond thats only ever getting bigger with sides spending more and more money. But who cares? I just want a wall side that gives a 110% every game and puts their heart on the line and play for the shirt and the pride of the club.

      Lets get behind Holloway and trust him! It's not going to happen over night but what other choice do we have? Every fan needs to be behind him! COYL! NOLU!

        @Omer Ronayne: The Championship's definitely got richer, but I really don't think it's full of big clubs. Burnley, Watford, Huddersfield, Blackpool, Charlton and Barnsley are all similar sized clubs to us, whilst Bournemouth, Doncaster and Yeovil are smaller. Meanwhile, just 10 years ago we'd have laughed at calling the likes of Reading, Wigan and Brighton bigger clubs than us.

        The trouble is we're one of the few clubs that hasn't really grown our support in recent years. Our reputation & sporadic hooliganism hasn't helped, but I think the club also has to take some of the blame for not doing enough to maintain or expand the fan-base.

        @Omer Ronayne: I think you are absolutely right when you you say we are a Yo-Yo club. I have been watching Millwall since 1970 during which time we have been bouncing up and down between the Championship (Old Division 2) and League 1 (Old Division 3). Like most Millwall supporters I just want to see 110% to fight for our cause. That's what makes it special about being a supporter of a "Little unpopular Club" like ours. The side we have at the moment does not seem strong enough to keep us in the Championship. To be honest. Ollie's record with relegation battles is not the best. He has also inherited a below average squad. Whatever happens we must keep faith with him and show our support as should we go down he will be an ideal manager to get us back up. Should we stay up we may even have more chance of progressing higher. Certainly more prospect than we had with Lomas.

        not always about spending money to get to the prem ,wigan Swansea blackpool to name 3 .
        its about desire and beng about committed and wanting it.sadly at the moment I do not see that
        our defence has been pony for the last few seasons for me ,and as for the strikers its not happening .i am glad we have i hollaway as our manager he inherited this pile of tripe barring the players he bought in.bushwacker i agree with what you have witten it will always be this way ,
        but lets hope 1 day we get to the promised land.holloway got palarse there so why not us .

    Over the years our club has had many ups and downs. I never thought I would see Millwall in the top division, to see us at the old Wembley, to reach a cup final, 59 home games unbeaten. I won't mention all the downs. Holloway will sort it, we have had a bad weekend with all the results. He has time. Trust!

    Hate to admit it but I no longer think so. Against 3 sides in the dogfight, we have shown no desire. People keep banging on about us doing better against big teams, i see it as us doing well in the big games, where everyone gives everything they have got for one of the so called "Millwall" performances. This squad is not doing that, it doesn't seem to matter enough. The only chance we have is if we add a real battler at cb and in cm, and get Dunne & Robbo in the side. It's tough but i would start only one of Upson or Williams and add a tough tackling battler on loan alongside them. We need a ball winner, a right winger who can cross a ball would make a massive difference aswell.

      cannot defend, and cannot score that tells you everything .the game against the anoraks is looking massive now ,as if it wasn't in the first place it is now .if we could get a couple of wins I think we would be ok .in my view the other teams below cannot string a few wins : together themselves .in my opinion I do not think we have the players wanting it enough to get us out of this mess we are in.

    We are in a real dogfight but one win can change everything.
    Yes,it's hard to see where it's coming from but 14 games still left to play. 42 points available.
    I know it's been dire for so long but if we are to stay up we need the best 12th man in football to get behind the team.
    If we dont and we turn on them then I believe that we will have no chance of survival.
    Yes they have been crap but as I said one win can change everything and confidence is key to our survival.
    I still think we will do it. Dont forget about Doncaster. They must be seriously worried and Blackpool are dropping like a stone. Lots of twists and turns. Just imagine the buzz and the roar when we finally get some decent wins. It aint over yet by a long long way.
    Dont give up the fight.

    There's still enough games to sort things out and despite the performances, there's enough quality in the squad to at least finish fourth bottom. I hope I'm wrong, however, but I've got a horrible feeling we're not going to stay up.

    Lots of people are blaming Lomas, but we all know the problems started before him. Jackett did a brilliant job for us, but his heart didn't seem in it last year and he didn't have the resources to strengthen the side. Lomas was a poor choice, but I still don't get the euphoria over Holloways appointment either. He's a real character, but I don't think he's the manager to get us out of a relegation scrap. Despite his high profile, he's got a very mixed managerial record. He's shown he can get good teams up, but he's also taken three clubs down, which would have been four if he'd stayed at Palace. For me the problems have been at board level - lots of good intention, but some bad decisions for a few years now.

    It's not over yet and one win would totally change our mood, but there's a horrible sense of inevitabilty about this season.

      @Micky Lions: Spot on again Micky. There are certainly enough games for us to turn things around but IH has to admit to himself that his master plan is not working and find a way of playing that will. Talking about Barcelona and telling the players to watch the Champions League is just insulting given the performances and the players that we've got. I still can't help but think there were other managers available more suited to the position we were in. If you're handed lemons you make lemonade!

    I hate to say it but barring a miracle I think we are down. I totally accept we are a yo-yo club and that's all part of being a Millwall fan but this year we have one of the most talented squads I've ever seen and yet still we can't turn it around. First we blamed Lomas and then we had a huge boost in the shape of the appointment of Ian Holloway and yet still no turn around and all we are seeing is the same problems that have been evident for the past two seasons. Last years squad wasn't as talented in fact they were very very poor but they fought and somehow survived. This year I've not seen the fight and have seen performances that were absolutely disgraceful, Southend in the cup being one.
    Have we got the manager to get us out of this: yes
    Have we got the players to get us out of this: yes
    Have we got the fight and bottle to get us out of this: No
    You never stop believing but as a fan you want to see a bit of fight to give you hope and in all honesty I've not seen it.
    By the way relegation would be disaster and anyone expecting a swift return, well I can't see it

    We will stay up.
    We've always struggled against teams around us and excelled against the better teams when not expected too, i.e as Charlton vs QPR on the weekend.
    We need a break to go our way, once we learn to score again we'll get many. The defence is getting better, we can beat Brighton and push on, the teams just above us will be panicking as well. Anyone from Sheffield Wed down can be relegated, we know how close it got last season.

    If we get a win on Saturday this will be the game that gets us going and a start to staying up. After looking at all of the remaining fixtures my predictions for relegation are Yeovil, Barnsley and Doncaster.

        @MFC Lion: To be honest i wrote that post after reading loads of doom and gloom on twitter and other articles about Millwall's likelihood of relegation. We have a third of the season to go with more than enough games to get us out of this whole regardless of other teams with games in hand over us. IMHO, Its too early for this type of poll.

    I'm a new person to this site. My cred is you will find me west upper most home game.
    When Holloway was made manager I thought wrong appointment. His previous is promotion with Blackpool via the free kicks of Charlie adams. Two sackings
    He then took over palace who were round about top and just brought them up via playoffs. He then resigned following season.people who support palace tell me he was tactically clueless.
    I can only afford to go to home game the selections and substitutions clueless.
    I fear the worst.

    I agree with Windy, although not quite as strongly, that this poll is not really a good idea, I see no purpose in it and Its not very helpfull. We all know the team are doing badly and we all have our own opinions as to wether or not we will go down. I think now is the time to stand up and be counted, we are known for our passion and the noise we make, and I know we have had little to shout about, but for me, although I have only missed one home game, my away attendance has been limited, but I am determined now to get to every game and make as much noise as possible, because at the end of the season, what ever happens, we can say that we, the fans have done our part.

    Don't post on here too often but I would like to say a couple of things:
    Firstly I sincerely hope Holloway don't go back to playing 442, he needs to stick to his guns and play the formation that he has always done and is trying to do now. Otherwise what does that tell you - that OUR Manager don't believe in himself or his style of play, which is exactly what SL done. As soon as things didn't go SL's way, he brought back the old sh?t players to try and nick a result or in most cases NOT to lose. Ian Holloway you MUST stick to what you believe in and don't go against your footballing belief's.
    secondly, I believe we will be ok and I actually think brighton we'll nick a draw, but I fancy us to beat Derby and blackpool away! you may laugh at me on the Derby game but these are the matches that would probably suit us, where no one is expecting much and I think we are not far away from a result like this. Blackpool are in freefall and it's his old team, so I;m sure they'll be up for that - mark my words!

        It's not as if teams are opening us up with proper football, most of the goals are not being aware enough and simple mistakes, that should and could be easily sorted. Even the Reading game, most people on here and I agree, are one of the stronger teams in the league, but up until muggy bywater dropping it and gifting them a goal, we more than held our own and probably were the better team! 7 points from the next 3 games - mark my words!!!!

      @tezza: I think it's great that we have a manager that wants to play attacking football- 'attack is one of the best forms of defence as they say. But there's definitely some tweaking to be done as far as our defence is concerned (goal tally says it all!)... We're getting better though and have been pretty unlucky not to pick up 3 points in some games- particularly against Bolton and the Sheffield Weds.
      I wouldn't say 'go back to all out defend mode'- but I think the goals will come and SHOULD be taking care of themselves with the strikers we've got- and some of our focus should be placed upon making us hard to score against. Maybe having only one wing back on at a time to harden the back line? Abdou in to help the midfield?? Maybe 1 less striker upfront??
      Appreciating the positivity though Tezza- We've got to keep believing!

      Are we gona staying up?
      OF COURSE WE'RE F**KING STAYING UP!! COYL.

    I shall wait for the fat bird before poring p*** all over this squad but I do struggle to see where there's hope.
    A defence that leaks like a sieve and an attack that would struggle to score in the proverbial boudoir.
    Not one attacker that has any individual nuance to turn a game or specialist free kick taker, just pit ponies the lot of them.

    Ever since I have been supporting Millwall (The only club I ever supported apart from Dulwich Hamlet!) we have always been in the same situation. The reason a clueless board and lack of money. Even when Millwall were promoted to the first division they lacked the resolve to buy big sold good players and then went in reverse gear. Millwall got to the Cup final but again lacked the willingless to spend big. Wisey was not a bad manager we have had far worse. Until the club can get the investment it needs we will always be in this type of situation. Unfortunately without the mega bucks of the rich clubs there is little chance and it is disgraceful that our national game is being controlled by the oligarchs and parasites of the rich elites.

    Nothing more I want in the world than for Millwall to be playing in the championship next season but I don't see us staying up, our strikers are useless and our defence has conceded 60 goals we need to see a new Millwall side in March if we want to stay up!

    I think we're waiting for the inevitable. We should have gone down last season but we didnt.
    we now find ourselves in the same position. If our goals against wasn't so bad then I'd remain optimistic, but I cannot remember any team with the worst defensive record ever staying up regardless of what division they were in.
    it dont matter who's in charge of this lot the bottom line is they -the players - simply are not good enough,too thew are carrying far too many. They havent the ability to put in to practice what ollie, the bloke before him and KJ before him have asked and trained them to do.
    It's all well and good saying the signings havent been good enough but who's to know they were all first choice, and each of em have shown some level of a higher ability than they currently are at previous clubs.
    when have we ever been promoted and actually progressed ? We've shown a little promise for a season then always gone backwards. The problem is we've had a bit of success and it's gone to the head a wee bit. We may have on paper a decent squad but everyone else improved theirs. We got the best of what our budget allowed, if we had more we would be competing with the mid table teams or teams fighting for the playoffs so probably would have ended up with what we have anyway.
    The only glimmer of hope is that, you don't always get what you deserve, and quite frankly all we deserve is relegation.
    the club from top to bottom needs addressing. Get every team playing the same brand so the youth wont find it so daunting to make the grade. Get a decent scouting system in place, I.e people actually looking at players rather than one man looking at a lap top. JB this is football not baseball, millwall not boston. Forget the stats and look at the facts.
    who knows, if a proper structure was in place then we may, just may, see our little club mixing it with the big boys, even for one season.
    forget talk of regen and get our hse in order, get the club structured and we may not need to worry about mfc making it's own money outside football as we may be able to produce home grown tallent with decent sell on value.
    Ffs get the club up and running before we end up playing local derby's with welling and Dulwich.
    How can something so plain and simple be so hard.

    I have wondered for some time if Ollie has gone off the parallel a bit. Leaving his last club as he did could have been stress related illness,plus some of his comments are such that they seem to be directed to himself,sort of a question and answere that he has to find the solution for.If we go down i don't think he will stay and he may go for a long rest from football,as he may have wanted to do when he left his last club.All due respect to him and hope this is not the case.This not a cheap shot at him but some of his comments are too confusing and contradictory. I wonder if he confuses the players......your great but your not playing............it's this formation this week.......as people say,please stick to your best eleven.Whoever they are ffs.

      @lion01: I am not an mathematician, but in 36 years we were once in the top tier. We are now in the 2nd tier. Mathematically there must have been at least an equal number of actual and potential promotions as actual and potential relegations. To put it another way, rewinding twenty years my driving instructor told me I under-steer on corners and I thought to myself, how can I drive a car for 1 hour and return to exactly the same spot if I under-steer?? Passed my test 1st time. Holloway's test is not to pass 1st time. He always said relegation is possible. His test is where we are in 2.5 years. I am confident he takes corners well.

    I think we will go down. The only hope I,m clinging to is that the bigger teams we play will appeal to the ego,s of some of the so called better players, and improve their performances so their agents will be able to put them in the shop window so some other poor b****** will give them another undeserved contract. Not sure that Ollie can do it but hopefully the agents can.

    a win against Brighton and all will look better - watching Brighton lose to Hull tonight and the are nothing to fear - they haven't scored more than one goal in a Championship match since Boxing Day when they lost to Charlton

    What ever way you look at it we need results and we need them now. Personally I doubt the current crop will produce in time to keep us up. However rebuilding has already started under Ollie and some of his acquisitions will do well in League One (Upson and Williams for example)
    It might take a couple of seasons but I can see us rejoining the Championship with a better structured squad ( Like a Bournemouth or Huddersfield maybe ) Of course it won't be easy getting promotion again but I am confident we will do it soon enough. Watching us actually winning games will bring confidence back to the players and supporters alike. Then hopefully next time round we can stay in the 2nd tier longer than our usual 5 year stint. IOWT

    Of course we'll go down. After taking 3 points out of a possible 12 recently against the likes of Sheff Wed & Bolton at home and Yeovil & Barnsley away we deserve nothing more. It's inevitable.

      2. and you don't always get what you deserve

      plus neither of the above things matter - the 3 teams with the lowest points will go down

    @block 28: I'm with you block 28 I'm sure I don't see a different game to you from block 4. We must be positive as fans otherwise it transmits to the pitch. We can't be the twelth man otherwise. Please get behind Holloway. Add the commitment from the Ipswich game (ok lucky goal) but we didn't look like conceeding, did we?? On we go you boys one team i'ts our life our family, children. It's MILLWALL.

    I think we should vote on should we waste our money on paying these players wages for the remaining games by watching them
    On average ticket travel etc £80.00.
    That's conservative I'm sure some pay more

But the supporters club will block people standing so we will not get a choice. Any one fancy standing I for one will back you. As for the petition came along about 3 years late. Do not forget Garston told us all he interviewed Lomas and was the right man for the job. Did he consult the fans?

    We need to keep a settled starting 11 and to only get 2 points from the last 3 must win games is not good enough but having a different forward line each weeks does not help the squad.
    We are really no better off than when we had Lomas in terms of points but ollie has taken over a team with a lot of in house problems stemming back from the end of last season and it will take time to fix, if it means going down to go forwards then so be it, obvioulsy i want us to stay up and with charlton Pathetics cup involvement this might de rail them. but please ollie let us beat those scumbags.
