Williams insists Millwall have stomach for relegation fight

SHAUN Williams says there is the belief within the Millwall dressing room that the club can stave off the threat of relegation.

Williams was speaking after scoring his first Lions goal in a 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers.

The utility man, who played at left back on Saturday, put Ian Holloway's side ahead from the penalty spot midway through the second half.

Having been substituted in the 82nd minute, Williams watched on as Simeon Jackson gave Millwall the lead again after Michael Keane's header, only for Josh King to level at the death.

The Lions are two points from safety with seven games of the season to go.

"It's disappointing to take the lead twice, which we don't normally do, and then see it all go away at the end," Williams said.

"Everyone feels like it is two points dropped because we were so close to three and put in a lot of hard work.

"But we still believe that we can do it and we are not going to stop until the last game of the season. Hopefully we can turn it around but the fight isn't gone from us.

"There are still a lot of points to play for and it is going to go down to the wire. I don't think anything will be settled in the next couple of games, it will go all the way.

"We need a lot of wins – as many as possible – from our last seven games. Every game now is a must-win."

Williams took the blame for Blackburn's first goal after losing track of goalscorer Keane.

"I held my hands up because I was marking the man who scored," he added. "I slipped just before the corner was taken.

"The second goal was a goalmouth scramble but he had too much time and space to have a free shot on goal."

    We gave been needing to win from the turn of the year, so why are we now suddenly going to win all these games, when we could not even hang on for 5 minutes on Saturday at home to get a win, sorry Shaun I cant see us being in this Divison in August.

      Rochdale has gone through a few changes.
      Last week, a hurricane blew through the whole of the Rochdale area and made £20 million worth of improvements.

    Don't get like the rest of this squad and start talking rubbish. All we hear week in week out is how hard you all work and how you will fight until the end. Sorry mate haven't seen any of that up until now, so why would it change?

    You can have plenty of fight. But we need most is composure something sadly lacking in our players. And no more talk about putting a shift in. Two hours work on a Saturday with a break ain't a shift in my book. Doing 50+ hours a week is a shift.

    Teams that want to go places buy from the Premiership.
    Teams that want to stay in the league buy players from the same league.
    We buy players who no one wants, out of contract or haven't played for ages.
    What does that say!

      @AireLys: We don't have the cash to buy players from the prem we could not afford their wages and players like these premiership superstars don't want to come here that's why we loan players from the prem like Harry kane,Chris wood and ryan Fredricks.
      We could have had Robert Earnshaw but he did not want to come here he was a free agent but he decided his furture ls not at Millwall,So we end up mend and make do with players that no one wants is all we can get right now.
      May be one day we will have a chairman who will bank roll us and put us in all kinds trouble like some of the teams around us (Birmingham City and Leeds utd ) but that's not for me I do not want to see Millwall in debt

    IMO this lad will be our best player next season - as long as he's used where he can actually affect the game (CM) rather than in bloody defence.

      @harryfabian: Yeah, he's a useful player is young Shaun. Think we've only been able to play him in CM - 2 or 3 times- coz every other c**t's injured... CM was the job he was employed for and what swayed him to come to us. Hope he's in a millwall side with more depth next season - so he can settle into a more attacking/creative role.... COYL.

    F****** hell we are never getting 6 points from forest and Wigan. We've already played our 'easy' games and spurned all great opportunities in the last few months (shef wed, brummies, charlton, Yeovil ) we've never looked in any game at all up for it. Bottle job the lot, no stomach for it

      @sadlier89: Have to agree with that. If we had any mettle, we'd have got another 7 points there. Would have made the situation a lot easier.
      Can't turn the clock back. It is what it is.
      Under Lomas and Holloway, I was excited initially to see the names we signed. Now, I'm more excited to see who he manages to get rid of in the major clear-out we need.
      Arrivaderci, and thanks for taking the money and doing NOTHING.

    Hi All
    I thought I’ll write in this blog to explain how we players feel about you guys who keep criticizing us.

    First of all we really care about Millwall. It’s obvious, our very nice apartments or flats are in this area so why should we not care for keeping the docks of Millwall exclusive? Also we like a bit of rough, we drive through the pot holes just the same as you supporters, sometimes over you supporters, making our Aston Martins, Porsches and Land Rovers dirty. Don’t tell us to be proud to wear the badge, we all wear the best clothes labels money can buy us. As for loyalty - we sign your programmes, high price replica shirts and balls don’t we? We write week after week in the press saying how we will avoid the drop and next week is the turnaround don’t we?

    Despite what everyone thinks the dressing room atmosphere is good, especially on pay days. Admittedly there is a little animosity from some who have been at the club for a while, but hey we just say to them go out on loan mate, it’s great, no real commitment, don’t matter if your un-fit or injured or you simply may want an off-day - you still get paid. If you do though, wear ear plugs on a match day. These are not to block out the manager because no one really understands what position he wants us in and we all wander over to the far end of the pitch and pretend you can’t hear, no they are to block out the crowd.

    Team practice and tactics are great. All week we get to practice against our own players who are just the same quality, can’t really be bothered as us or can’t hit a barn door like us, so we all look good and the best bit is that our manager goes to the press saying how good we are in practice! Makes you feel that we should put in for more wages, but can’t be too greedy, well not all the time. You don’t realize how many clean sheets Fordey has got in our training sessions and our forwards have had less misses than Mickie Rooney! Midfield, can’t really comment on a midfield as we don’t have them.

    I love team tactics. First we all have to guess the formation and see how many times we can change it in 90 minutes. It’s hilarious watching players move into areas that no longer need cover and those players that wait and wait and wait for a pass, we don’t use the word cross as none of us can do it and it only upsets players when you shout ‘cross’ as they think you are annoyed with them. You have heard of the diamond formation, well ours is more of an oblongly, circlely, sort of thing, get it up there and run the quickest back.

    So there you have a little insight into what we have to put up with, so just stop complaining and keep buying those season tickets.

    The reasons we dropping into the wilderness next year are because we can't defend or score which is fairly fundamental when your a football club! Listed are my thoughts:

    Forde - Goes down in instalments. Can't read a game, kicks for to much, missing crosses from corners, open play and just anything in the air and second worst goalkeeper in this league (Bywaters the worst)!!
    Dune - No pace, can't defend, can't pass and loves to give a penalty away and gets sent off a lot
    Robinson - No pace, can't pass, can't even kick straight and past his sell by date
    Morrison - Can't score in open play, can't score from the penalty spot and can't score full stop!!

    Come and sit next to me Shaun. You will soon lose your stomach for a relegation fight and anything that you may have eaten as well. Bring that Edwards with you so he can see what a load of rubbish, not how good the rest are. As for what Edwards says about the pressure being off away from home, well we've used that one before. We are no good away either. We just got lucky against Derby and the goal Morison scored Ray Charles or Stevie Wonder, or a combination of them both could have scored. We are going down and deserve to.

    I was just reading a newspaper online and came across this. The financial crisis engulfing Leeds United will lead to administration unless Massimo Cellino is given shock permission to take over or an alternative buyer is found imminently.
    ‘The club is a mess and there’s no pretty solution,’ said one insider on Saturday. Leeds are more than £20million in debt, including at least £10.5m owed to GFHC in ‘owners’ loans’ and at least £6.5m to Cellino. Hopefully these C**T'S go in to administration and get deducted 20 points and keep us up, this looks like the closest thing to keeping us in the championship. lol

      @JordieLion: If it was at the beginning of the season, their might be hope but the FA won't let the 'mighty' Leeds lose that much face.
      Still, shame about them yes?

      @JordieLion: what would be even worse is if they get a point deduction (say 10pts) and still finish above us! That really would be embarrassing.

    As one leading sports journalist famously said: English Sports governing bodies are amongst the poorest in the world and bottom of that particular league by some margin are the Football Authorities.

    How do these 'owners' ever pass a fit and proper test?

    For all we say about JB, he is an impeccable character who seems poorly advised, can't see Leeds going under, still worth noting we got beat by a team who were unpaid!

    For the optimistic (deluded) if Charlton and Barnsley lose their games in hand we would have 7 games to make up a 2pt gap.

    I've almost convinced myself now.

    Imagine being Holloway. You have all these people slagging you off, but have they managed football teams? Have they got teams promoted to the playoffs? Have they even watched 15 Spanish football games in their lives? The fact is most fans do not know what they are talking about in terms of football, I'm not saying I do, but this is just my opinion.

    Its easy to blame Holloway, but you have to understand how bad our squad and mentality has got over the last 15 years. This league is so tight, and theres only 6-8 or so teams who are above the rest in terms of quality. The rest are scrapping every week, and it could go either way. I did think though at some point, we would win a few on the bounce- but it hasn't happened. The real issue is that Millwall football club must change so many things to even get into the 'top 6-8 championship clubs' I mean whats the point of getting mid-table anyway?

    Look at our attendance record, we average 10,789 and Charlton average 16, 248. You know why fans are not coming, because fans do not want to watch mid-table hoof football. They are fed up of it. If we played how Holloway had Blackpool playing I predict we would have 15k easily every week. For the last 15 years we have brought in so many clueless dumb players it has astounded me. For the last 5 years, I have been waiting for us to keep the ball for over 20 passes in a row! Can you believe that? Just 20 passes. This is not down to managerial tactics or anything, its down to players being inept, stupid and with no class. Lets be fair for 5 years we have had no class or brains at all.

    Now you can shout, 'look at west ham with their long ball game, or Palace just playing everyone behind the ball, and playing counter attack- they are doing well', but in the long term, they will be found out, like we have in the last 5 years. You need to play the right way, get intelligent players, and then you will progress as a football club in the long run. It is not the end for us if we get relegated- maybe we need to, to progress for the long term, it would be nice for Ollie to start off next season in this league, but what he will do is have a huge clean-out anyway.

    I like the way Holloway wants us to play, but unfortunately the players are not flexible enough or good enough. Its either you are on the wing or upfront, they don't communicate, they have not got the brains, to think for themselves on match days. I think Holloway needs to play 442 with these players, and then change it, once he has brought in the right players. Even at Palace to be honest, it was not really working well last season, because their players are just as rigid and stupid. Pulis tells the players who their opponents are and stops them from having space, each player is given a role/position on pitch to play, and they do it. Holloway is far too good for Palace or Millwall in terms of current players. Allardyce suits the millwall players much better, 'hoof dumb' zonal football.

    Anyway I've had my usual long rant, and I hope Holloway will totally change this football club. I listen to all the fans passion, and the constant abuse of managers, but most are missing the big picture. We have been s*** for 15 years, you cant expect Holloway to change that in 6 months. Give it time, we need to bring in articulate players with intelligence/ability and get rid of 90% of our current squad. Once we start playing real football, our attendance will go up, and then everything will click into place. You wait until Holloway has got us scoring at free will, its going to be so exciting, mark my words on that.

      @Alexdangelo: I suppose Holloway was far too good for Leicester and QPR as well when he relegated them. A good manager makes the best of what he has and has more than plan A.

      @Alexdangelo: interesting comments but you are deluded if you think more attractive football would get us gates of 15,000 , Nothing except premiership football would do that, we are a poorly supported club and our reputation stops us from picking up casual support it always has done and probably always will

      @Alexdangelo: Alex i have said before that our problem,s started some time ago,long before lomas,but i got slagged off for daring to mention that jacket along with other's ie board members lomas and now IH need to share the blame, some of the of the player's attitude under lomas was disgraceful ,even some of us fan's deserve critisme ,for the way they got on lomas back from the start 'giving some of the player's succour not to give their all for millwall fc .
      By making lomas the scapegoat for what has gone on is like burying our head's in the sand .
      As far as winning game's on the bounce,well we did under lomas,leeds, blackpool, charlton,.
      What i want to know is,where has the attitude we had against ipswich gone,ok we got lucky with the goal,but we deserved to win.I remember the warm up before the game the player's were being put through their pace's by bircham they looked as though they were up for it,but that lasted one game.
      If we had put as much effort in our games as we did for the ipswich warm up we would be much higher.

    Is there or has there ever been a salary cap in any of the divisions of english football to sort of ensure a balance and equality to the competitions?. It use to be just spend spend spend in aust till clubs started to fall over and the rich clubs dominated year after year. I think out of desperation the leagues decided to impose measures that would apply to all clubs in regards to their spending. I know it's different codes and different size comps but seems like the leeds situation can't be good for anyone longterm? Probably a stupid question but thought I'd ask anyway??

      @grassgrower: in 1961 the salary cap was abolished.

      £20 was the max!

          @lion.ie: spot on lion i think he was chairman of the PFA,and johnny haynes was the first £100 a week player ,and i remember his mighty fulham team getting done 2-0 in the cup at the old den,dave harper and barry rowan scoring the goals,with dave harper being a passenger due to an injury[think i got that bit right] what a match, that was when you did not doubt any player's commitment to our club,as with the crazy gang at a much later date with wimbledon the player's them selves sorted that problem out no manager needed to do that

      @grassgrower: We have 'financial fair play rules' now. Largely a load of nonsense at the top level but may offer some protection to smaller clubs to prevent them being bank rolled and then abandoned.

        @lion.ie: clubs in aust have boards but are generally owned by the members. The afl has a commission which oversees the game and clubs and apply the salary cap to the players / coaches and football dept spend. The clubs are responsible to their members and I reckon the cap has bought accountability to the comp. different countries , different codes but thanks for the reply.

    I have kept banging on & on about our defence for well over a year now.

    We haven't been able to defend from set pieces for a couple of years now & every time we concede a free kick or a corner I half expect the ball to go in.
    We have flat footed defenders who cannot follow or read the game quick enough.
    Great with the old Robbo style block or great odd tackle in the box but overall not good enough at this level.
    The only time we look solid is when a fit Lowry & Shittu are in central defence.
    We also need Williams or Garvan type players to fill that defensive midfield hole that was so gaping early in the season .
    At the beginning of the season I thought Lomas would come in & see the problems in defence straight away but he didn't & our fragility was there for me & still is . The amount of times our oppo have scored with their first attack is shocking while at the other end we miss what little chances we get.

    I would have thought IH would have spotted this straight away but he got too carried away reading the " Family " & thought we had enough guts in defence to shore up a bit & in a way he has by bringing in Fredericks & choosing Shittu & Lowry as first choice CB's.
    With not a lot of money I think Upson & Willilams are good buys but Lomas's core of players & signings just look to crocked to have any effect at this level.

    Playing a totally different team week in week out is not helping either but at the end of the day we just don't have enough quality.
    There's no way we'll survive now, we lost too many games to other sides scrapping for points.
    League 1 will be a shock but a few wins could vastly improve confidence.
    Well we'll see won't we!!

    Good post steve,but finger's crossed a miracle will happen and we survive,but i do feel injuries and bad ref decisions have had a big effect on our season,i don't like to hide behind those thing's but it is a fact.
    I reckon 65% percent of goal's against were down to school error's and rank bad defending by individuals, managers can only put the idea's in player's head's but once on the pitch it's up to the player whom i think have been our biggest problem all year.
