Holloway: Millwall deserved to beat Boro by bigger margin

©

IAN Holloway felt Millwall deserved to beat Middlesbrough by a greater margin on Saturday.

The Lions recorded a 2-1 win at the Riverside Stadium to lift themselves out of the bottom three but would have been worthy victors by a more emphatic scoreline.

Boro goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos made several fine saves in the second half and Lee Martin was denied a third goal by the offside flag.

In the end, Stefan Maierhofer's first-half brace proved to be enough, rendering Emmanuel Ledesma's free kick a mere consolation for the hosts.

"We stuck to our task, we knew what we were doing and I'm just disappointed that we lost the second half," Holloway said afterwards.

"We deserved to win by more than one goal.

"I don't know how the linesman can give a free kick when their fella has thrown himself over on the edge of the box, and if you look at Martin's follow up he was onside.

"Just get it right – because there are huge things at stake now. If they'd equalised at the end, that wouldn't have been fair because their goalkeeper was man of the match.

"I wanted to win the second half so I'm disappointed that we didn't.

"But would I have accepted that performance? Totally. Did I expect it from them? Yes I did, because we're getting better.

"Did I expect more from Middlesbrough? Truthfully, yes, I did, but we caused them a lot of problems which is good for me and my lads.

"We've got to keep going and keep going – that's five unbeaten now."

Holloway heaped praise on goal-hero Maierhofer, who buried two close-range headers from Martin crosses to put the Lions in control.

"It's a good job he's big enough to head those into the net, because he missed a sitter early on," Holloway said.

"I was surprised at their team sheet and I didn't think they would play that back three. That's what cost them.

"They changed it really quickly at 2-0 because they couldn't handle Maierhofer.

"I'm delighted for him. He's helped our results since I put him in the team, he's an honest boy who works his socks off and he's proved he can score.

"He's unlocked the door for other people around him. Martin is playing exceptionally well – he looks as good as he has ever looked.

"It was a good, solid performance all round. It was a bit nervy at the end but that's us – we do it the hard way."

Millwall face a quick turnaround before Monday's battle with Doncaster at The Den.

"It's going to be a tough game at home," Holloway added.

"Our lads are learning how to play away – they look so relaxed and understand things and now they have to do that at home.

"It's nice to get this run going – so well done to the boys. We have got to get home and get ready for Monday, because this win is no good if we don't follow it up.

"I'm delighted for this lot because they've deserved things that they haven't got since I have been here and they've kept going. Let's see if we can keep going.

"I don't want to look at the league table – it is irrelevant. It will only matter after the next three games."

    I watched Doncaster last night and think they were unlucky not to get something from that match V Derby.
    They would have had a longer recovery period and it's no forgone conclusion and it will take a big effort from our lads but we are on a roll away from home but we need to avoid defeat in this penultimate home fixture as our prime objective.
    On paper our struggling rivals seem to have it all to do, but there will be some unexpected results and the final match Blackpool v Charlton should see one of them go down but we must keep our foot on the pedal.

      @Moody:
      true enough - if Sunderland can win at Chelsea all results are possible but we have the best chance - Donny have serious injuries up front - no need to fear them; they don't travel well
      I hope they stay up - they are fighting the odds like us - much rather Birmingham go down - it is still possible

    I know we're not safe yet but when IH said ee need 15 points to be safe, I, along with many others laughed and thought what a mug. I am so pleased I've been proved wrong and really almost believe we can stay up. I can't make it on Monday due to work commitments but I'm sure the Den will be bouncing. I hope so as I'm going to the Bournemouth match so would like to go there knowing we're safe. Miiiiiiiiiii

    If we beat Doncaster and Barnsley lose at Derby then Barnsley can't catch us. Based on a Wall win, Yeovil would have to get 9 points from their last 3 games to catch us and that's assuming we lose our last two. That means, I think, that it's either Blackpool, Charlton, Doncaster, Biringham or us to go down.
    Having seen the next three games involving that lot, I'm going for Blackpool.
    I'm now hopeful.
    Very hopeful.

      @NICKOLA: Even if the worst happens and we don't beat Doncaster on Monday I still the final bottom 6 at the end of the season as
      Charlton 19th
      Doncaster 20th
      Millwall 21st
      Blackpool 22nd
      Barnsley 23rd
      Yeovil 24th
      The worse situation is that going into the final Saturday Charlton are already safe and if Blackpool beat them they finish above us. It would be just like Charlton to let them do that!!!

    SO....... I've got up on Easter Sunday with a strange feeling in my gut.

    All my local teams I follow have lost over the last 2 days, Auckland Blues (rugby) lost / North Shore (Local football team ) Lost / NZ Warriors (Rugby League) Lost......
    (remember I'm in NZ) so rugby and league are still the main sports here.

    So I put on the laptop, find the sports page to look at all football results........
    And BOOM...............

    We did it..... I said to my friend on Friday, if only one of my teams wins over the weekend it has to be MILLWALL. We need it / we deserve it and we need to be in the Championship next season.

    My friend said that the mad man (IH) is a great coach.... he has his way of doing things and once the team understand him, work for him, play the football he wants to play Millwall will rise again.

    I think it has taken a few months to get to the stage where the team have got to where he wants them to be. Lets face it we all thought we were going down. AND now LOOK..... yes it has taken some time, Yes we have had some wobbles, Yes IH is a crazy man with some of his pic's / formations but hey

    We are Millwall, We are crazy, we are passionate, we love our team and all we ask is the players and the manager do the same..... And you know what........ I THINK WE ARE THERE.........

    Well done Wall....... we have one foot over the line. Can we SMASH Dony on Monday with an atmosphere at the den like we know we can. Then I believe our 2nd foot may well be over the line too.

    I do miss my sat afternoons at the Den..... but let everyone know I'm their in Spirit always....

    Come on WE CAN DO IT....

    PS: Yes my friend has first hand knowledge of IH, He is a palace fan ( unfortunately )

    A streak manager, said it from day one. Would not be surprised if we go to the end unbeaten now. Equally I wouldn't be surprised if we can't buy a win at the start of next season. Well done to all involved but the honeymoon period is definitely over now, no going back to the bottom three and bottom three performances. COYL

Two great headed goals , it's a shame he didn't get his hatrick he deserved it. Also what a great fighting spirit from the whole team. One more beer & iam done.

    Been WALL over 50 years now and you hear so many new signings and new managers go to a club and spout how much they love that club only for another to come in offer more money and away they trot.
    Ollies only been here 5mins but he loves this club and is proud to be with us he is wearing his heart on his sleeve,he talks about us being tough and wants his players to be tough and do things the Millwall way and he is right and he is doing it.and for a long time now so are the players. LONG MAY IT CONTINUE WHAT EVER LEAGUE WE FIND OURSELVES IN....and if we do go down it certainly wont be through lack of effort.......COYL

    F*** me that's a long way home, - most enjoyable though with a win. Can't believe the transformation, we look like we've got a game plan and the lads look so determined. Thought we were well and truly gone - what a turnaround. Credit to Ollie, first he stopped us shipping 4's and 5's, and now finally we are scoring some goals and looking like we can score a hatful. It was pretty much all us - 3 top away wins and 10 out of 12 - what odds could we have got on that - just unbelievable. Proper club, proper fans, Millwall means the f****** world to me, - just so happy. Just hope we don't f*** it up and lose to Doncaster. Donny won't bring many, let's give em a hostile atmosphere and get behind the lads - they've done f****** brilliant for our badge the last 4 games. COYL!!!!

    So happy I might be proved wrong about the outcome of this season! Just to add that if we beat Doncaster then there is at least one other team with a worse goal difference than us (finally!). For this reasons it is a bit like a 7-pointer match.

    In the past eighteen months the opinions on here have ranged from Jackett being a genius to being next to useless, Lomas being the great white hope to being the worst manager we've ever had and Holloway being the Messiah to being clueless and after a short unbeaten run he's the Messiah again.
    People need to take a step back and remember that it was Holloway who took us to the bottom and that we are now back where he started. If he keeps us up, so what, good darts, first part of the job done.
    I hope he is our Messiah but let's see where we are this time next year before we all get carried away again.

      bad show lion - it took him months to sort out our trouble makers and see our weaknesses - we are a million miles ahead of where lomas left us in terms of spirit , tactics and teamwork - think back to just before he came - The shame against Southend , the nil nil against Donny away where we clung on against a weak side and of course the shocking performance against Boro at home (same oppo different outcome)

      @lion.ie: he had to fix the many problems we had before the performances improved and as seen in recent weeks the results have started to go our way.

      An instant fix and change in fortunes was unrealistic and you sound ungrateful for what he's managed to do so far.

      @lion.ie: If we go down with Holloway he still gets my support. He had inherited rubbish and had no pre-season at all. When he took the job he was quoted as saying relegation was a very real possibility and he cannot work miracles. I agree with the range of fickle comments people make with all managers and it is really disappointing at times, especially those who throw the "C" word round. But Holloway surely deserves the benefit of the doubt whatever happens this season. If we stay up I personally feel he has exceeded expectations.

    Well done Ollie and the boys great result. Just keep your feet on the floor, be confident, keep the momentum going and hopefully get the three points against Doncaster which will go a long way to securing Championship football next season.

    For whatever reason when KJ left the club, we had a squad that were not performing, SL attempted to arrest the decline that had set in but could not manage to do so in the three or four months that he was given. Whether he was good enough or not is neither here nor there, he left a team performing in pretty much the same manner and form as KJ had.
    IH took over and took some time to change our fortunes around...surely nobody expected a few years decline to be halted immediately..............and we are now in a position where our fortune is in our own hands....and we have momentum....and a lot of slackers and non triers have been shown the door

    onwards and upwards COYL

      @eio: good post eio a lot of people on nad wont face reality and admit we were on the decline under kj and ,this continued under lomas ,as i understand it there was one thing that both Kj and lomas had problems with and that was certain players were trouble and if you can recall IH saying certain players gave lomas little help.The first thing IH did was to stamp his authority on the players by telling the they would do it his way or not at all,but was IH having problems,leading to dunny having a right go in the dressing room,that has led to this great run we are on.

    When you look at the form tables it clearly shows that we are 6th over the last 6 games and 12th over the last 10 games overall.

    http://www.soccerstats.com/formtable.asp?league=england2

    Our away form has made the difference and I firmly believe that is because at home too many fans get on the players backs.
    This makes some of them nervous on the ball and not play to their full potential.
    Some people might say they're professionals and should be able to cope with it.
    I would say that you are giving the away teams an advantage and we should be giving their players stick and not our own players.

    Let's hope we keep the form going to the end of the season starting tomorrow with a win against Doncaster.

    If we stay up it will be a fantastic achievement by Ollie in my opinion.
    He can build on that form going into next season.
    He will have to have a clear out but if he brings in more players like Upson and Williams we might see some quality football down the Den next season but we desperately need a natural goal scorer.

      @MillwallGra:
      Agree with a lot of your post.
      It must be so disheartning for the players. I guarantee that the first misplaced pass will be met with by howls of anger by many but not all.
      If I was a player I would think thanks a f****** lot for that. We have just gone on an amazing run and one misplaced pass and I'm getting it and as you rightly say this then gives the opposition the advantage.
      I think our twelth man is the best in the football world but I dont think we always use him the best way.
      Would love to see a bit more patience but I wont hold my breath.

        @wall2wall:
        I totally agree about the twelfth man once Steve Morrison got the goal back against Watford the atmosphere was brilliant down the Den the other Saturday even when we went 2-1 down.
        Unfortunately some idiot behind us moaned for 90 minutes about how F**king rubbish we were and how much he had paid for his ticket.
        Someone was shouting back at him well don't F**king pay it!.
        He left early and we scored.
        Clearly we are not so F**king rubbish after all considering some of teams we have beaten or drawn against recently?

      @MillwallGra: some fans at the Den are a disgrace with the way they s*** off the players and swear at them for the slightest mistake.

      It does no good what so ever to the team and only contributes to them being scared on the ball and afraid to try anything ambitious in case it doesn't come off.

      Frustrated with the performances or not I seriously wonder if some are just as thick as s*** to seriously think their input to the game has any benefit in motivating the players.

      Correction I know some are as thick as s*** I hear the same muppets game after game

      @MIGHTY:
      I understand how you feel but we don't want another Wembley.
      I think the best way to get round it is when the plonkers start to have a pop at the players start a MILLLLLLL when they start again do it again, I am sure the monks chant will drown out the fans who continuously slagg off the players.
