    When the final whistle went yesterday I walked out of the ground, there were no hero's or players of the season for me, they disgusted me for what went on in the large part of the season.
    Who would I keep ! None of them are worthy in my mind.

      @Moody:

      Terrible season apart from last eight. Let's be fair though they have turned it around. Formations players out of position, dramas in dressing room can all create this. They pulled it of with a great last 8 games... That was no fluke and deserves more credit though mate come on?

        @millwalldownunder:

        Supporting from afar I see ! you should have held a season ticket and endured what we have put with this season.
        Only blind idiots paper over the cracks for what is at really a best mediocre set of players.
        Malone can be decent but not when he hits the ball 20 feet ahead of him across the centre of the pitch and expects to catch up with it before an opponent takes it, this is schoolboy football and should be coached out of them as 10 year old's not level 2 championship.
        Woolford our best player ! he gives it his all which is not up to this standard, I have no argument in giving it to him because he simply tried harder than most but ability wise he is poor.
        I have not renewed my season (held for most of 60 years attending) because I'm not committing myself to witnessing this current set of players and anyone that that gives out contract extension's to the likes of Easter is simply only delaying the inevitable of next season.

        Yes, Block 40 CBL lower.
        Held for most of my 60 years attending and witnessed every division from 3rd Division South in my youth and up and down like an old whores drawers throughout and only have I witnessed throwing in the towel on such a regular basis only in the Dave Tuttle season and even that did not deter me from renewing but when I see club mismanagement and player dissent is heartbreaking for me and not easily forgiven because of our rivals f****** up big time.

          @Moody: I can see where you're coming from Moody - there's been more than a few dreadful performances this season - continued from the end of last season.
          BUT.... - (cutting and pasting from other page) I feel that the team has turned a corner in form - and in a way, IMO this season has been about surviving this transitional period of KJ leaving.. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Plus we now have IH, who has done a great job so far and I honestly think he can really push us on next season. He now has time to properly put his mark on the squad - a proper pre season - a few players out - a few decent players in... EXCITING TIMES INDEED!!
          60 years support is outstanding Moody - you can do what you want! But I'd strongly urge you to reconsider... - if this form continues, next season looks much brighter!

      @Moody: we could not have had more commitment since Ollie came - were you there to witness that outrage at Southend? The players from then have given what they have got - yes they are limited by the standards of some players at other teams- but you don't get those last 8 results by accident or luck , just as our previous results were because collectively the team wasn't good enough most weeks - Next season is something different again, Moody - you'll be down there for Wolves and at Fulham - chin up

        @timchimes:

        I have it on very good authority that IH is the real deal and the same authority is very much in agreement with my views on the entire current crop of players.
        Please don't ask me to reveal because I hold a great deal of respect for the feedback I get.

        But I posted some weeks back (my own view) that IH was building a team to get promotion from league 1 with the signings of Upson and Williams but if we should slip the drop they would be something to build upon in whatever league we end up in.

        But the thing that worries me is the much touted behind doors match of probables verses inprobables 6-0 and the Dunny coating of his team-mates and the resulting upturn in results.
        Now was this IH's stroke of genius or a player that he under-rated up until that moment showing him the way.

          @Moody: I reckon it was a bit of both - our style of play has without a doubt improved under IH and I thought we were playing pretty well before the 8 game run - things just weren't going our way - refs/injuries/suspensions plus a lack of confidence... This is where I think Dunney came in by giving the squad a kick up the backside and getting that team spirit going... You can have great tactics, but without team spirit and a bit of confidence, you're gona struggle...

          @Moody: you certainly live up to your username. Considering our budget we've got some half decent players so stop winging and come to realise that we have one of the lowest budgets and are still surviving in this league.

    Well done Woolie, Had good season considering the ins and outs of the team this year and have given everything for the shirt, which a lot this year could not honestly say they have, Also Bugsy Malone, great young player with a big future. In the last 8 games the club came together players and fans alike and that's what its all about.

    for all the downs and downs and ups we have come through - normally when things are that bad (most goals conceded and bottom in March), you go down so teams like Bournemouth who have more points and think they have had a great season start on 0pts with us next year - we have shed some bad influences and need to recruit some more quality, but the football will be more entertaining next year and there is no point pretending we can compete with those on bigger budgets - bit like Stoke thinking they will get a Champions League slot - Brighton have shown that despite playing some mediocre football for long periods you can make 6th with a bit of luck -- so why can't that be us with some positivity and shrewd signings

    My best three in exact order well done Wolly your a fighter!! You play with passion!

    Malone has been class since he came in after Dunne's red card. Also fair play to Dunne for getting back into the team and using his voice at the players meeting to become heard and earn captaincy.

    I will admit I've had a few bad words to say about fordey I was wrong... He's had a couple of rascal shots beat him, but he has pulled off more blinders to over shadow the howlers. Well done fordey..

    The first post on this article is just completely idiotic. Do us a favour pal and don't bother coming next time! I have said it time and time again, we haven't played 'that bad' this season in many games - yes there are a few we got hammered - Bournemouth and Birmingham away and Derby at home but other than that, close tightly contested games where we couldn't put the ball in the back of the net!

    We are Millwall Football Club, not a Leicester who have thrown crazy money for years to get out of this league or a QPR who have virtually a Premier League squad! Most of us don't expect to be fighting for promotion we just want a team that has tried and competes where I believe we belong, in the Championship. I'm not stupid and I know its been bloody tough this year following the Lions and we looked certain for relegation but at full time yesterday I was proud to clap the team and proud to see us pull of the miracle, as the majority were too.

    Back to the actual article ... The top 3, Woolford, Malone and Forde were the best players this season all for different reasons and possibly we could say without them we'd have been a League 1 club next season but we do also have some other young players that are going to be very good for us - Williams, Upson and Fred come to mind and experienced players such as Dunne and Bailey who have been immense the last 2 months or so!

    Well done Martyn Woolford and Well done Millwall, Championship football for another season we'll be there (well some of us) next season for what I hope is a little less nerve-racking season!!

    A lot of emotion today in these entries but lets not lose sight of what has been achieved, a month ago we were dead and buried and by hook or by crook we have performed a great escape,while not all of the players yesterday were at their best(no names) they can all feel like heroes today, a few weeks from now we will all be on tenterhooks worrying about whose coming and going, if we had a striker that could hit 12-18 next season then all will be ok,
    Relax enjoy and have a great summer.

      The much wished for 20 a season striker is normally out the door by the January window with the help of his ultra ambitious agent in the modern game.

        @Moody:
        Moody - I agree with your comment at 13.31.

        But your starter post is way off the mark. The last half of the previous season was more deserving of the criticism you've thrown out there.

        Like you, I've watched many poor games this season - and seen the difference in the last 8 games.

        As stated before and on this thread, that is not luck.

        I go back to some of the very bad displays in the 70's - and I don't think your comments are right.

        But if that's how you feel at this time then it's better that you go.

          I do not need your advise on attending, my decision is based upon not purchasing a season.
          My stickability is not for anyone to advise upon after my length of attending, me and my two mates had a combined total of 200 years attending the wall until one of them passed away recently.
          If it comes down to happy clapping a bunch of let-downs or walking out, its amazing how quickly people let a few results cloud their views.

            It would be a shame after such a lifetime of support to give up your S/T, surely the highs and lows, the quality or lack of, from season to season, is what being a fan of 'smaller' teams is all about as we can never be sure of what's around the corner. I've been a fan for 50 years and a S/T holder for the most part and I've loved every minute. If having a bad team and a couple of bad years comes before getting a decent side, another Wembley appearance, for any reason, an unexpected victory that gets us to the play-offs, a championship title winning side after a relegation season, an opportunity to play in Europe.....it goes on...it's what it's all about. Do I want a team that could win the premiership every year because we have more money than anyone else....yes I suppose that would be great....but would it match the day in day out of never knowing what one season will bring as opposed to another....no way...give me the adrenaline rush of having every season different...it's what great about it...the totally unexpected!

      Not buying a season and giving my wife a bit more attention in the winter holiday department.
      Of course I will still attend but without feeling the need to go at all cost, travel is a major deterrent for me specially when they close the footpath for long periods that puts extra walking on the way from Surrey Quays, I covered more ground than most of our players during the the last footpath closure.

    Woolford not the best by far, but probably the best of a bad bunch. And yes before anyone asks I am a season ticket holder and yes already ordered next seasons. BUT Ollie has to clear out some of the dead wood..
    Hope we can improve next season and get the results to keep us away from the relegation battle.
    Thanks to John Berylson a great Chairman could not ask for anyone better now need the fans to show support each home game.
    Come on people get down to the Den and support this great chairman and YOUR team.

    I'm not a season ticket holder and far less qualified to comment than most on these pages but a season which was heading for disaster was resurrected with some astute decisions by a manager who for his part copped a fair caning over the months but stuck by his beliefs and gradually guided this club to safety. Saturday was a relief, there's such a long way to go but at least we've avoided a really dire situation. Good on everyone involved for having the bottle to ride it out and to Martyn Woolford for his award. What ever each of us believe at least we've got an opportunity to build and create a great future, it could've been so much more difficult.

      I allways thoupht we would be safe..even after the blackburn game .must admit knocked the wind out of my sails a bit..i said then it were'nt over to the fat lady sings..cos we've escaped so many times down the years..A big thanks must go to Alan dunne & his rant at the players for showing no heart..moving him to cb & carlos to rb(who has played there before)..was a good move & starting the games with the hof...after the QPR game i knew we were safe..cos we all knew donny's game at leicester would only end one way...Now lets see wot he's really made of..a whole summer to get the right players & to whip em into shape..next season will tell us if we can put him in the managers hall of fame or shame

    Woolford by a mile for me.
    I think we have had a group of players good enough for the Championship (at least mis-table) but they have been poorly coached and organised especially in defence. It took a long time for Holloway to do this but he got there in the end.
