Maierhofer not fit enough to start, says Millwall manager

STEFAN Maierhofer is being limited to a role as an impact substitute because he is not fit enough to start matches, Ian Holloway has said.

All four of Maierhofer's appearances for Millwall have been off the bench and Holloway says it would be a risk to play the Austrian from the first minute.

But the Lions boss is hoping that the 31-year-old's influence will grow as the season reaches its climax.



"He's something that we haven't got in the group," Holloway said. "I like his touch and he's a great person. I think he'll prove valuable by the end of the season.

"If teams do drop deep against us, we can hit him, he can flick it on and he can enable other people to score even if he doesn't himself.

"I might have to start him in some of our remaining games and I will – I've got no problem with starting him.



"I like what he does but it's just his fitness at the moment. You don't find many players on a free transfer who are fully fit at this time of year.

"It's match fitness that he lacks. His running and what he does is almost there, but he's got to get back when we lose the ball and close down.

"He's not quite there yet but he's working at it. I'm having to use him as a substitute at the moment but if there was a knock to Steve Morison he would start."

Holloway has also been pleased with the progress of another of his forward options, Simeon Jackson, who has scored two penalties in  his last two games.

"He looks like he believes he's going to score," Holloway added. "That may only be from the penalty spot so far, but he looks sharper and fitter.

"He knows that with Maierhofer and Morison here, I'm going to put him up the middle and what he needs to do is get on the end of a flick – then he looks threatening."

      some others as well as myself on NAD have been asking why he does'nt start could this thread mean that IH and the team do read and take notice of what's posted on NAD,so people keep the abuse down and come up with sensible idea's.
      You never know you might just see your idea put into action on the pitch.@bermlion: berm the wife is treating me for my birthday,see you there.

        @jim1222: These walls have ears Jim!!!
        Well, probably 1 set at least = Aldos - someone's got to filter out all the sh*t! Ollie and the team would've committed mass suicide by now if they read some of the comments on here.... Here's one! ........

        1 of the anoraks 3 games in hand to be played tonight at leeds..... What a predicament we find ourselves in..... what's more embarrassing? - relying on leeds to win or relying on Charlton to lose?!?! Palarse keeping us up last season was bad enough!

        p.s. If they are listening....... 5 wins and 2 draws please! Buying my season ticket tomorrow and would prefer to be paying for championship football.... Defenders - please work on defending set pieces.
        Strikers - Please work on scoring from set pieces and please put the f**king ball in the net! Message to all - please don't get injured.

      @bermlion: renewed my ticket on Sunday.

      If it's league 1 then so be it, I would still be looking for our results on a Saturday so unless I move away from London or lose my job I will keep going.

      Had 2 enjoyable seasons in league 1 last time so quite excited about next season now.

    Sort of sums up the frustration of the whole season, blokes in blokes out, heads not right and on and on it goes. Kill for just one week when the best group was on the pitch and in the right frame of mind. The big maierman looks a unit , feels like it's too late but f***, ya never know do ya.

    Ollie there is only 7 games left and if he is still not fit enough to start in the 2 away games in the next 7 days, so he maybe able to possibly start next Saturday against Watford leaving just 5 games to save us, by which time it could be all over for us. Dont know about the climax to the season it feels more like an anti climax to my season.

    What this really means is that he can not play a whole game. So, why not start him, perhaps try to get us in front and when he can do no more, sub him. Surely this has to be better than bringing him on with a few minutes to go as he did last saturday, trying to chase the game.

      @rikkiatwall: maybe he's worried bout starting him when there's some real sting in the game in case his pooper falls out! Might be going a bit conservative and waiting till everyone else puffin n blowin hopin for maximum quick impact.

      @rikkiatwall: Having watched thousands and played in hundreds of matches I will tell you one thing that is completely consistent ... that there is NO SUCH THING WHATSOEVER as an "impact sub". Teams win games by starting with their best possible line-up, get in the lead and then as fatigue and tactics dictate, bring on substitutes to ensure the win. This is FAR more common than bringing on players for 15 - 20 minutes in the hope that they'll change the outcome. That normally means you ain't good enough, and all that's going to happen is you are managing the deficit. Sure - I know ... sometimes bringing someone on DOES change a game - agreed. But you can't argue with the fact that the substitutes enabling you to win from a losing position is rare, compared to using them to shore up and see out the match. Not that you're arguing, I should add ... just a turn of phrase. In short, Holloway needs to wise up and playing his strongest starting line up in EVERY match. Then if fitness or form takes its toll, use the substitutes. I'm beginning to wonder if IH uses the national lottery numbers to pick his starting XI with, the personnel changes so often.

    I know he was only on the pitch for no more than 15 minutes but I didn't see him lose the ball once, had a good touch and played in SJ all the time, just a shame that Morrison left his scoring boots at home again

    As a side issue, does anyone think any of the young home grown talents would possibly make good captain material in a rebuilt squad? Any of them showing good leadership skills or just not enuf exposure or game time in them yet?

      . I have grown up with Millwall for the last 56 years and never once abused any of our players, not even Pat Cuff !!! but this shower of tish, well most of them have made me see RED, I don't mean I have been watching Liverpool, they play like they have just met each other in a dark room, they pass as well as Kenny Sansom can pass a pub, they shoot like a bloke that's had a vasectomy (fire blanks),
      tackle as if they were made of twiglets and have the commitment to the cause as much as Margaret Thatcher had towards any union that dared to want a decent living wage or job security, (NONE).
      Bloody hell all this cos I saw Beevers in Toby's in s**** hole Bromley.

    no offence to hoff, but it a terrible inditement of us as a club, in one of our darkest hours we we are reliant on a half fit Austrian who was out of contract and can not last a full game. it is so sad you have to laugh to stop yourself hurting. If it was a storyline for a parody about a badly run club you would be in fits.

    The resilliance of Millwall supportes on this site as they still try and eek out the goodness in the earlier posts....we do deserve better

    Shock horror, a massive lad who has not played for an entire season is not for to start when games are running out double lively!! Who would have thought it eh. Maybe it would be an idea to start with him for a half, maybe get a lead to protect with him rather than chasing as per usual and save having to make triple substitutions in desperation?

          I am simply making the point that Charlton haven't improved - - I am only saying things can change quickly -they have 3 wins from 3 goals - I do not subscribe to the idea that you make your own luck - luck is what it is - you tend to get what you deserve over a season but luck can play a huge part - for example playing teams at the right time in a season when they are in form or not makes a big difference - yes we played Leeds when they were s*** and gave a way 2 poor goals and that is down to our weaknesses - the reality is there are small differences between most teams in this league , week in week out - how can Ipswich be 2 points off the play offs - look at how many point Brighton have dropped this year and can still make the playoffs - nothing special about them

          @JonnyBanks: Your right Jonny, all the time you can keep the opposition from scoring you are always in with a chance. As Brian Clough once said it only takes a second to score a goal.
          The successful Arsenal sides of the past have shown with their famous 1-0's.
          Get the defence sorted first, the rest will follow.

      @kell: Leeds missed a pen in 94th min.

      This just isn't our season. May as well play the kids now Ollie.

    I have accepted we are clearly relegated! It could be a positive if we regroup and come back up in 1-2 seasons.... It will be a negative if its any longer. Clear out, play kids with potential, go back to basics and Millwall way.

    We were in miracle territory -
    Now we're in the............ getting hit by lightening (twice) whilst being chased by bigfoot, before riding a flying pig to safety only to be abducted by aliens.... territory...
    SO THERE'S STILL A CHANCE!!!
    There's only so many times you can monumentally f**k up during a season - before it comes back to bite you in the a*se.
    Oh well. Roll on next season - still gona get a season ticket tomorrow...
    IH should seriously start thinking about trying out more of the youngsters- would really like to see Alfie and Aiden in action before the end of the season...

    Should make for good game Saturday - we have to win (as one of our 5 wins, which still might not do it) so attack all the way - could be a massive defeat if it goes wrong

      @timchimes: We have HAD to win for months mate. The sooner you eternal optimists accept our fate the better. Not IHs fault for me, SL did not help admittedly BUT KJ clearly left a sinking ship and takes no responsibility whatsoever.

        @JonnyBanks: f*** sake stop blaming KJ. How many seasons need to pass before it will be someone else's fault?

        The players perhaps should be taking the blame.

        @JonnyBanks: you are not reading what I am writing but rather what you think I've written - I am talking about Charlton and fine margins between wins and draws - this applies to all clubs - We can be a lot better with a couple of influential players -it is not being over optimistic but reflecting reality

            @Jim28: its not i dont like him i was never a fan of his ,i just couldnt take to the man,and he proved me right he ran out on us.george graham was different he left to better himself,but left us with a positive team.jacket walked out leaving us nothingand supposedly no other job to go to [funny that]as i have said to others if you think him a legend thats great i dont.
            but all the time jacket was in charge i never once slagged him off or tried to undermine his authority,unlike some on here who never gave lomas a chance and are now slagging off IH

          @jim1222: when he arrived we were heading for league 2.

          He left us as a Championship albeit we only just survived and needed to freshen up the squad.

          However the whole summer was available to get a new manager in and to change the squad so we could compete this season.

          Plenty of time and the board failed to get the right man in and Ollie has been unable to turn things around.

          We're clearly not going to agree on KJs role in our demise so if you want to blame him that's your call.

          To me there are plenty of other candidates more worthy.

            @MFC Lion: MFC if you read my post's properly you will see i do blame other's,and i only blame Kj for what i think he did wrong,although Kj was not my cup of tea i never once slagged him off whilst he was manager of millwall,and i dont s*** off any manager while he is in the job,for one reason only and that is,to continually s*** off the manager only helps the player,s who want to cause problem,s in the dressing room or dont want to give their all for the club.
            Yes KJ got us promoted,yes he took us to wembley a number of times,but at the end of the day he left a sinking ship that was as much his fault as it was any one else's fault.
            People say look at what he is doing at wolves,but why was he not doing that with us,because he brought in or failed to get rid of many rubbish player,s, then ran out,that is why he is far from being a legend in my eyes.

            i think kj did stand up for himself...he told them if he was not given funds he would leave....he was not given funds, he left ....do the maths. And he left with dignity, could have slaughtered us but I have not heard him say one bad word. I can look back and remember him in his final couple of months....you could see hoew the enthusiasm was ripped out of him. he always stood on the edge of the managers area but then resigned himself to what was going on around him and like I said he has left with dignity. He was a class act...if he did have a sideways pop at us it was recommending holloway

    Of course we will go down. We have not been good enough to be in this division for a very long time. We really are not a championship club anyway,we punched above our weight when JACKETT got us to this division, we are going down and I don't think we will be coming back up for quite some time. As a dyed in the wool millwall supporter of very many years I have to say it doesn't really bother me what division we are in, I will still support them in the same way I have always. We go down,we go up,we are a yo yo club,always have been,we will carry on and survive, it's nothing the club hasn't been through time and time again.

      @bordersarebest0170: That is the attitude and that is what others should realise. We are a club that floats between the lower leagues. It suits us, it in reality makes no difference which of the lower leagues we are in. My dad chose Millwall, I chose Millwall, we could all chose teams who operate at an elite level, do we??? No. It's the fight we are in reality. £30 a ticket for lower league football says otherwise BUT hey oh that's the world now isn't it

    Do not think that it is luck that is giving Charlton all of these 1-0 wins. From what I saw of them at the Den this season, they have only one good player (Poyet) and yet they are grinding out these narrow wins by being well organised and ensuring that they are difficult to break down.
    Have to give credit to the new Charlton Manager as he has got them organised very quickly. Holloway and his muppet coaches should take note, as on paper we have much better players than Charlton.
    I still do not believe that it is over yet. We have one of the toughest run ins, but I think Birmingham and Leeds could still drop into the mix and hopefully it will be Leeds down with Yeovil and Barnsley.

    Were on the p*** tonight, it's always good having a drink I feel! And my thoughts always turn to the mighty lions, jeez the only 2 games I've seen at the den stick in my mind constantly and it never changes. You guys have something unique in the world of sport, f*** knows what it is but it's just something within that place and within the hearts n minds of the millwall faithfull that is special and should never be sacrificed. Like so many of you, I don't give a damn where millwall play , in the words of the band U2, . "I WILL FOLLOW" . Good evening to you all!!

    Charlton a digging out results and Millwall are not, there has to be a reason and imo it is the manager, he has cocked up by not concentrating on signing a decent forward and strengthening the defence (including the keeper) his formation and constant tinkering with the team has left it rudderless. No point in moaning now because we are going down. I might be in a minority but Holloway has been a disaster and should go.

        @Sealion: agreed, has got to the point where it feels like we're scrapping by just surviving and then repeating the following season.

        Can't say its enjoyable just to say we're a championship team.

        Correct me if I'm wrong but when we do get promoted back we tend to have at least 1 competitive season before it starts to go pear shaped. Maybe break this cycle and stay competitive in this division next time.

    Players and mgr need to go to dpecsavers as obviously not reading the table very well. We are the only team Leeds beat in 10 games really says it all. Been far too much talk from our supposed pro players and mgra too this season. Has to be one of the most shambolic seasons for a long time. Wonder what tripe IH etc will spout when we can't stay up mathematically? Any guesses?
