MILLWALL manager Ian Holloway has been pipped to the post for the August Championship Manager of the Month award by former Lions boss Kenny Jackett.

Ollie was up for the monthly honour after a run of one defeat in the opening five games of the new campaign, recording three wins and one draw.

However, with a run of four wins and one defeat in August for Jackett's newly-promoted Wolves side saw him scoop the award.



Norwich City boss Neil Adams and Forest manager Stuart Peace were also up for the award.

Elsewhere, Alan Dunne lost out to Igor Vetokele of Charlton for the August Championship Player of the Month prize.

The long-serving Lions defender was a runner-up along with Tom Cairney of Blackburn and Michail Antonio of table-topping Nottingham Forest.

    I will be very happy to see Ollie nominated or even win a award at the end of the season rather than the beginning,

          @Geoff the lion: KJ deserved it, forget the budget (they haven't spent much) he got them up in his first season and got them 3rd in the table. Can't believe how many KJ hating w*****s there are on here.

    Think even if Ollie had been up against Mark Robins the League still wouldn't have let him win. No one likes us, we don't care! It's always the curse of death anyway

      @PaulMcK: must agree with you PaulMcK, but have to say Well Done Kenny J , he did us proud for many years. Now it's Ollies turn! So after Xmas maybe he'll get it, if we are still in the TOP FIVE! ( NOLU, WDC ).

    Last time kj got that award, Chris woods left and we spent the rest of the season fighting relegation! Let's hope history repeats itself for kj. And for the record, I never rated him and will not be eternally grateful for what he done for us. We played crap football under his watch and lucky to win the play offs. Probably will incur lots of dislikes for this post but those people are too grateful for small mercies

      @rob hearn: @Geoff the lion: before he arrived we was terrible & the only way we was going was down to the league two & probably bankrupt. He then got us to wembley twice & promoted to the league we are still in. On top of that a semi final of the FA cup I wouldn't call that small mercies. Yes the football weren't great but it's wot we needed at the time. Some people just whinge for the sake of it.

        @block 28: Yes block he did all those thing's,but he f****d off and left us in the sh**,we were 9 mins away from relegation,he also left us with a load of second rate player's on biggish contract's,with bad attitude,s
        He could not bring the best out of player's grabben is a classic example,played him on the wing for us,grabben leave,s us,then he is banging in the goal's for every one else,why?because he is now played in a position and system that is football not kick and rush.
        Who was it that saved us from relegation when we were 9 mins away from the drop Palarse was it not and if we had gone done and jacket had walked away like he did,you bushwhacker and jim28 would have been slagging him off big time and you know it.
        Without wood's we would have been relegated,no doubt about it, JB matched the transfer fee and personal term's for the player but KJ could not get him to sign him for millwall.
        I will defend KJ on one thing,i do think the appalling behavior of some of our fan,s may have helped him make up his mind to go,the same fan,s you bushwacker and jim28 defend.
        im with geoff the lion and rob hearn on this.
        I was glad to see the back of him because had he stayed we would be looking at div 2 now instead of looking forward to a hopfully profitable season under OLLIE and COMPANY
        I think ollie was manager of palarse when they saved us from relegation ,well he saved us again last year as well, twice in a couple of year,s so OLLIE is the man for me not jacket who ran away leaving us up to our neck's in the sh**.

            @Jim28: Not me jim i dont s*** people off when they are here i am critical of them in a positive way,i did not s*** jacket off,i did not s*** lomas off,i did not s*** bywater off because he came from west ham when they were here,no i leave the slagging off to the likes of your self.
            As for being a disgrace of a fan look in the mirror sunshine.
            I would not have said anything about jacket,but i will not have you block28 and bushwacker telling me he was a legend,that is an insult to the real millwall legends of the past.
            So you carry on supporting millwall in your warped way and i will support millwall in my much more sensible way.
            PS what it like being branded a powder puff,but remember you cannot be PP1 because i am,so you second best already.

          @jim1222: you started by saying he did all them things then slagged him off makes no sense & I for woundnt of slagged him off if we were relegated. His record speaks for itself & we wouldn't hav Ollie if he didn't talk to KJ first so I don't see your logic. U just find faults in anything. You probably sit there the entire game finding things to moan about.

          @jim1222: I don't often join in on this type of arguement but on this one I feel quite strongly. KJ came to Millwall when we were in real trouble and to his credit he turned the ship around and for a short while we looked like an ok outfit. Problem is that something happened (could be the bad behaviour of the fans as some have said and it could have been somethig else...I know what my money would be on) but we stoppped looking decent and ended up playing rubbish football that almost (but not quite) made me give up my season ticket. We also ended up with a load of over paid players who either were not good enough or could not be bothered. This, in my mind, left us in a worse position than when KJ took over.

          So while I have some fond memories of KJ I also have some very bad ones. Him getting the manager of the month over Ollie means nothing to me especially when you consider the budget he has (as others have also said) - it is a nothing trophy that is normally the kiss of death in any case.

          I would prefer for the same type of points return we have had this month every month over ever getting another sniff at the MoM award any day of the week.

            @tallchap18: i think this post is excellent.mainly cos it was given a lot of thought before hand..i do want to point one thing out.not at any point did KJ blame the fans for him leaving..i just think he needed a new challenge..so but in anytime.

          @jim1222: So, you're saying one bad half season outweighs the rest of his time here? Grabban could come back right now and still fail, he doesn't graft, we'd get on his back and he'd become moody again. What's his longest stay at any club? 2 seasons? Wouldn't have him back even if he was free.

          You talk about nearly getting relegated in his last season, but who saved us from a potential relegation to League Two?? I like Berylson but he didn't exactly throw the cash at Jackett in comparison to Lomas and Holloway did he? Holloway has been able to attract bigger names due to having managed in the Premier League, so I can't hold that against Kenny.

          Since the shambles of the summer of 2006, I am really happy with how it's all gone. Great years under Kenny, and now great years under Holloway hopefully. (Forget about the Lomas period).

          Last thing to say would be: Without Kenny there would be no Ollie, and vice versa. Ollie gave Kenny his first job in football, Kenny built the foundations for our return to the 2nd flight, Kenny suggested Ollie's name to Berylson.

          If you can't appreciate what Kenny did for us then you're a mug and you wanted Millwall to fail.

          I personally hope that both ourselves and Wolves go up this year.

          IN KENNY AND OLLIE WE TRUST!

        @block 28: in all the time kj was in charge, did you ever see anything resembling tactics? We played with guts and determination, which got us results. The team achieved those great results and only they should get yours and my praise. No windging, just how I see it

            @block 28: block, to be honest anyone could've done what kj did. Do you think that even when we were at our low, our players were naturally better than most around them. I don't expect miracles but I know when a team are leaderless. I always get behind our team, tactics or not, as long as they try! And during the kj error, that's all we had! And I kept my season ticket! As we sing, come rain or shine

          @jim1222: he left at the end of a season be it good or bad still in the championship. He could have stayed, spent a fortune and f##ked off the following season but he didn't. The board wanted him to stay.

          He felt it was time to move on so be it. I would have liked him to stay. If he had the budget that ollies got he would have done just as well in my opinion. He played the loan market blinding.. Woods Kane andros Adams the list goes on.. You can't make a player sign. Woods went to Leicester who were smashing it at the top of the league. We couldn't compete with that.

          Like I said he could of left us in a much worse state financially but that's the type of man he is. When he did leave he got snapped up straight away to a good size club and got them promoted. That's not a s*** manager in my book

          Kj well done, I'll give you a clap when your here.

        @block 28: gents, my nan could've done the same job as kj. The fact is there was nothing happening on the pitch that would suggest a tactical influence from the manager. We played crap football with no organisation. Despite this the team, not kj won us the results you and jim 28 and the others mentioned. You are giving credit to kj but it was the team that achieved success. We were lucky to beat Swindon, and it was cris woods that made the difference. He left and what happened! As for him leaving because of the fans! Really? Like he didn't know anything about us before he came!!! If you think he is a legend the you probably think hodgson will win us the World Cup! I for one will give that welsh p**** a mouthful when he returns

            @block 28: point taken, you may not have said it was the fans or he is a legend, but if it wasn't kj tactical brilliance, surely it must have been the team. The man didn't have any tactical influence on the squad, so common sense says the success came from elsewhere!

      @conor: neither are getting abuse from me...although i am just one 17 year old kid, and i know i can't control the whole stadium, but i loved james henry and kj and still do, so i hope they do well this season (except for when they play us of course). I think the wprst thing james henry has done in moving away is saying that 'I've been there for a while and i think it was time to move on', but he also said 'i am glad that they stayed up and i hope they do well next season' or something along those lines.

    Always good to know that there are more supporters grateful for what Kenny did for our club than those who aren't.
    He was the right man at the right time just as Holloway is now in my humble opinion.
    The games against Wolves are going to be extra special.

        I see him as a LEGEND Jim and as you say it's all about opinions.
        I look forward to giving him a great reception on his return before and after the game but not during of course.
        I personally dont think that there will too many remaining seated when he gets that well earned round of applause and rightly so for me.

          @wall2wall: You are right many do see him as a legend and they will applaud him,had he have left us in a different way and with a stronger team,that had a better attitude i would not have said anything,even though i did not like his style of play that he could not change,and you have to admit he left us with with a bad dressing room.
          Wall i will alway's respect you and what you write so please dont take it personal when i disagree with you .

            I never take it personally just because someone disagrees with me Jim.
            This is a forum and it's all about different opinions. That and the humour is what makes it all worthwile.

            @jim1222: surely the players must take responsibility for their poor attitude?

            The manager can only do so much and maybe KJ was somewhat weak and lacked the respect or fear factor required. Saying that a di Canio type approach would have been a disaster.

            Overall he was the man in charge when we looked like dropping to league 2 and he left us, albeit with problems, in the championship.

            I would love to know who else would have taken the job when we down in league 1 and done better than he did.

      @rob hearn: when KJ was appointed, I was the same as you, I thought Kenny who, but he soon won me round, we had 3 Wembley appearances under him, winning the play off against Swindon, all this on a s*** budget, for me he is up there with the best mangers in The history of this great club!

        @dpendet: totally agree with you. Very disappointed when he was appointed, but boy, what memories he has left us with. And for those saying he ran out on us when it all went wrong, I say thank you, he knew he had done all he could for us, so left us before he started taking us back down again. I am sure he looks back and regrets some of his signings, but what is most important to me is he spoke to Ollie, and helped him decide to come to Millwall. KJ will be a legend for some, and not for others, opinion will always be divided, but in my view all of what he did, including leaving us, was done with the best interests of Millwall at heart. In my view a legend, and I will clap him before the kick off when we play Wolves, and then we are quits and he becomes just another visiting manager.

      @rob hearn: Only a f****** idiot would think that supporting their club would suddenly mean you're a glory hunter. So are you saying that regardless of what Kenny achieved, you sat there at the Den like a miserable p**** whilst we all celebrated the success that he brought to the club will all love?

    @Dpendet: all I am saying is I was not his biggest fan, yes he did well but then again the year he left he was already on his way to wolves and we would not be so grateful if we had gone down that year either. For me people have short memories in that respect and has he said being at wolves is like staying in a 5* hotel every day compared to millwall I think that statement says it all really.

    i for one am in the f*** kj camp. we played s*** football, and when he f***** off, he never had the b******* to address the fans. he knew he was getting the wolves job so didn't give a s***. ok the only thing he has done is get ollie involved ( pat on the back) when wolves come to town i won't be applauding, he can f*** right off. on another tack good to see rhino back at the den, now he was treated like s*** by the club and fans when he got the bullet, but he was never a manager and stepped in when the club asked him too. so nice he got a good reception on saturday, but i think some fans should hang their heads in shame the way he was treated. rhino was a kid when he joined millwall and we were in his blood. he is in my opinion what millwall should be about FAMILY!!! ONE CLUB FOR LIFE!

      A man who saved us from the drop, got us promoted and a decent fa cup run. Plus he always backed the fans despite the incidents of trouble over the years.

        @MFC Lion: what I'm saying is this, you hold kj up to be this great manager? who played wonderful football ! who had a great youth policy! who got us to wonderful wembley 3 times ! who backed the fans when they were naughty ! a bloke who had ran out of ideas, and ran out of millwall and off to wolves who are a 5 star hotel compared to millwall. nice one jackett thats what you really think isn't it! i like a bloke, who in football is prepared to put his neck on the line, lays out his goals, and has the principal to stick to them, yes kj might be a nice ish bloke, but he was never millwall just a bloke passing through on his way to a 5 star hotel! ONE MILLWALL FAN IS WORTH 50 AT ANY OTHER CLUB. SO KENNY GO EAT S***!!!!

    Like it or not he got us to where we are now, Its true he ran out of ideas and it all went a bit stale but that happens when a manager stays to long. Days out at Wembley and championship football isn't a bad legacy for Kenny to be remembered by. I for one will always be grateful for what he achieved for our club.

But I never question anyone's support on our club. I take it as a given that we all love millwall as much as each other. So it gets my back up when people accuse others of not being a real supporter, and telling them to go and support another team. That's the only thing I preach and I do practice it. My opinion on kj is just how I feel, and I respect other peoples opinions even if I don't agree with them

    Unlucky Ollie, well done K.J.
    Kenny Jackett is a 'wall legend IMO. As other people have stated, he came to us when our club was in the s*** and got us promoted back to the Championship, plus took us to Wembley 3 times in 5 seasons (any other 'wall managers in the past do that).
    As for leaving us in the s*** when he left, I don't believe that for a second. The players were to blame for what happens, not forgetting that Chris Woods and West Brom stabbed us in the back.
    I look forward to welcoming K.J back when we play Wolves and hope he gets the reception he deserves.

    I personally appreciate the job KJ done and will give him a very warm standing ovation until kick off and after the final whistle because I believe the man held himself with dignity and has always held our club in the highest regard.

    All managers make good and bad decisions and yes the club wasn't in the best of states when he left but that happens at many clubs who have had a long standing manager, may I point to Man United as example. Before you all jump on me in no way am I comparing the success of fergie with KJ just simply the length of the tenure.

    Did we play good football is subjective so will split opinion. But I enjoyed my Wembley trips and also going every Saturday.

    KJ thank you but in Ollie I trust.

      @dragonflymfc: You are right about the comparison we had Lomas and they had David Moyes.
      Ollie didn't have the instant new manager impact but built and still is building gradually. If you look at Louis van Gaal he is having to do the same thing.

    @jim1222: So, you're saying one bad half season outweighs the rest of his time here? Grabban could come back right now and still fail, he doesn't graft, we'd get on his back and he'd become moody again. What's his longest stay at any club? 2 seasons? Wouldn't have him back even if he was free.

    You talk about nearly getting relegated in his last season, but who saved us from a potential relegation to League Two?? I like Berylson but he didn't exactly throw the cash at Jackett in comparison to Lomas and Holloway did he? Holloway has been able to attract bigger names due to having managed in the Premier League, so I can't hold that against Kenny.

    Since the shambles of the summer of 2006, I am really happy with how it's all gone. Great years under Kenny, and now great years under Holloway hopefully. (Forget about the Lomas period).

    Last thing to say would be: Without Kenny there would be no Ollie, and vice versa. Ollie gave Kenny his first job in football, Kenny built the foundations for our return to the 2nd flight, Kenny suggested Ollie's name to Berylson.

    If you can't appreciate what Kenny did for us then you're a mug and you wanted Millwall to fail.

    I personally hope that both ourselves and Wolves go up this year.

    IN KENNY AND OLLIE WE TRUST!

    I think the answer to much of this b***** about how good kj was or wasnt could be resolved by answering this question....would anyone sooner still have kj rather than ollie....? Surely nobody would....kj did a good job considering the circumstances but i for one feel people go well over board with lauding kj an his achievements for us....he did good....but he aint no legend....id take olly for his footballing ethos all day long an u cant say hes been given more to work with than kj was....kj's fire burnt out at least a year before he left an the truth of the matter is had the wolves job not come up that gave kj a way out we would 100% be playing f***in leyton orient now....towards the end of his reign he was just happy to let the senior players run the show...Ollie would never let that happen....can anyone on here truly recall a game under KJ that was more than just guts n determination....? In short, kj was a good manager but i can tell ya now...he aint a millwall legend like John Docherty as some wallies on here call him....whereas i gotta strong feeling that in the future Ollie will be.

      @Hurlocksgonnagetya: So you want to laud Ollie's achievements over Kenny's? Ollie saved us from relegation once, and with the fixtures he had we should of been well safe before the last game of the season anyway. Kenny saved us from relegation, took us to 2 consecutive play off finals, finished 9th on our return to the 2nd tier, and took us to a FA Cup semi final. It took us until 1999 to reach Wembley (barring the Wartime FA Cup final), so for a manager to do it 3 times in 6 seasons is legendary by our standards.

      The argument ain't about whether he's legendary or not anyway. People on here are disregarding what he did for our club when we were in a proper state! He did all of this on f***-all money.

      You miserable lot can all do one. I'll be giving him a standing ovation, and I think a lot of others will, while you lot sit there with a face like a slapped a***, if you even get down to the game.

    Alpha puppy, maybe he should've let the scout run the team! What's important is the SCOUT found the players and kj agreed they were good, he just didn't tactically know how to manage them MUG

      @Geoff the lion: Nah you're right, he got it all tactically wrong! Can't believe we stuck by him in those dark years when he took us to the league above and to Wembley 3 times. Horrible era. Wish it never happened.

      You are clueless if you think scouts are the be all and end all of success. Just because a team doesn't have a clear philosophy like Barcelona doesn't mean their manager is redundant and contributes nothing to the tactics. You could put the best 11 players in the world in a team but without a manager they ain't gonna win any trophies.

        @alpha_dogg: alpha, in part I agree, the best 11 players don't always make a team. The point I'm making is that in all the years I watched kj at the helm, tactics weren't apparent! This would make me think in the absence of leadership, shear grit and hard work is what gave us success. As an ex army, I've seen this before! Mate, you think what you want, always happy to hear someone else's opinion. I guess we look at things differently, but at the end of the day, we all love the lion and not the men who wear it for a short time! Millwall is the fans, we just happen to employ good people every now and again

          @Geoff the lion:
          jackett's style , which is a better word than tactics, is the same now with wolves as with us. he likes to get the ball forward quickly, wide men and hard work - the difference is he has a bit more money now and can bring in the likes of van parra who is a cut above what we could afford - he got us close to the playoffs first season back so he couldn't be that 'tactically' lacking - he got in morison and made the club 2 million - actually tactically jacket is strong - he knows what teams need to do to win - his style is a bit old fashioned but can work with the right players - Chelsea made it work by lumping it up to drogba and they realised that last year that is why they have a bigger man in costa now- all teams have to hold it up somehow - we have fuller and renegie now to replace the hof - passing is one thing but it has to be effective - so I don't think it is jackets tactics or style that made us struggle - it was the finance to build and attract players - any one who doesn't realise what he did for us just needs to look at bigger clubs like sheff utd in league two for many years to know what we could easily be

            @timchimes: you give an intersecting agreement! So, what you are really saying is if we lobbed it up, as you say jacket told them to do, and we ha drogba up front, it would be jackets way. Well we didn't have drogba so without him, the long ball doesn't work. If the long ball was and apparently was jackets way, I rest my case that it was the team, not jacket that earnt out success

        An as for your comment about with the fixtures remaining he shouldve kept us up is laughable....Ollie took over from quite possibly the worst manager to EVER sit in the millwall dug-out and a team that was so low an defeated that f***** brian clough woulda struggled to get a performance out of em....it was no short of a miracle that we stayed up an went on an 11 match unbeaten run with wins at Derby, Wigan, Forest etc. so id hardly undermine that achievement u clown....I already stated KJ was a good manager but in reality KJ would NEVER in a million years have gotten us to the promised land whereas under Ollie i kinda feel its a strong possibility....

            @Geoff the lion: i always felt that kj was a man without a plan, he ruined our youth system/or didn't bring youth through, he had no long term goal, a bloke who did a tidy job then moves on. lomas takes over a team run by the senior pro's, devoid of a plan. now ollie a man with a plan, all youth teams playing the same as the senior team, employing youth, 1st season keep millwall up, 2nd season consolidate, 3rd-4th season push for the premier. and all on a lower budget than kj. a man with a long term goal meeting realistic targets, playing football the right way.

    I cannot believe how contentious this story has become?
    Kenny saved us then got us promoted on a limited budget with blood and guts. He kept us up but it went a bit Pete Tong in the end.
    These things happen in life and in football.
    The legend issue is down to the individual but clearly the passion on this is coming out but people will always disagree on this issue.
    The same way John Docherty/Frank McLintock took us up to Division 1 but they also took us down.
    That era was started by George Graham.
    People look at that era through rose tinted glasses. (Including me)
    The first season was blinding but the second season we got found out big time and it was very painful.
    I think Wisey did a good job getting us to the FA cup final people will disagree with me but I won't kick-off with them.
    I'd rather watch us beat Ipswich next Saturday.
    We have started a new era under Ollie also on a limited budget when you compare it to what other teams have spent.
    Only time and results will tell.

      @MillwallGra: I have no doubt that Ollie will go down in history as a Millwall legend.

      He'll also be that b****** who left us in the lurch, lost the dressing room etc

    I am grateful to KJ for what he achieved at our club. His successful sides were solid and tactically he was a good manager. However towards the end of his tenure we slipped backwards and for whatever reason he wasn't able to stem that tide. Ollie is for my mind a much more expressive manager who plays a more fluid style of football where players don't fulfill traditional roles but rather play a variety of roles across the pitch. Given the choice I prefer the football we have today. Ollie is more volatile but really is getting the team to play some wonderful stuff.

    Whatever KJ's limitations, be it his own or the club's finances, he turned this club around and we are where we are today thanks to KJ and JB. I was gutted when he left, but in hindsight and one manager on, it was probably the right decision by him and the club. Congratulations KJ, a good man and a good manager. If he gets anything other than a warm welcome when he returns, shame on us!

    Valid points on both sides of the argument for me - ....BUT.... I think the positives that KJ did for this club BY FAR outweigh the negatives. We punched above our weight for the majority of time KJ was here and had some great days out - not only at wembley - but many times at the den and at several grounds up and down the country that will live long in my memory.
    When KJ returns to the den, I'll sing '1 Kenny Jackett' from the CBL end (before or after the 90mins!) - because he deserves it. What he doesn't deserve is abuse from anybody.

    Anyway, well done to KJ for the award - 4 wins and 1 loss is better than - 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, so no arguments there!
    A BIG WELL DONE to Alan Dunne for the nomination - he's been fantastic for us recently - and looks to be the right choice for the captaincy. Long may it continue. COYL.

    Good job, bad job, legend or no legend he's gone now.
    The main trophy Ollie need to keep getting each month is our backing.

    We make the difference down The Den no one can argue with that! If he can keep building on the football which in turn gets us, the 12 player performing at our best again. It's been stale I think down there for a while. I'm hoping we have some close battles this season that will get us really going again.

    The legends are the families that support Millwall first and foremost. The Den is our 5* hotel and we love it! 😛

    I have too been Millwall all of my life and my earliest memories of Millwall are watching them at the Old Den. I think a lot of fans on here can say that actually, it's very little of you (Rob Hearn) to assume that just because people on here disagree with you then there's no way they could have supported Millwall for as long as you.

    This whole argument is ridiculous. In my argument I reckoned that you could have only started supporting Millwall in the last couple of seasons, hence the hatred towards Jackett. If you were indeed there at the Den and watching the magnificent first 4 years that Kenny brought to Millwall then I felt it would be impossible for you to hold such hatred for him.

    A good manager offers so much more than tactics. Hence why the title is manager, and not tactician. It would be foolish to disregard our success as down to him, because you simply thought the players were good enough and smart enough to go out there and organise themselves.

    As for Kenny leaving us in the s***, is that really true? Maybe in comparison to our first season back in the Championship (which Kenny led us to, by the way). But he took over when we were struggling at the bottom of LEAGUE ONE! He hardly spent a penny in his 6 years, and we got to Wembley 3 times in that period. He didn't walk out on us half way through a season, he left because it was right for him to leave. Kenny loves our club, and he knew that the future would not have been good enough had he stayed. He left as soon as survival was ensured (albeit with some luck) wich left us with plenty of time to sort ourselves out for the following season (which we didn't). His comment about "5 star hotel" is clearly in relation to the fact that he has a budget which most teams outside of the Premier League would envy. If you think that is a dig at Millwall then you are a f****** retard. I am happy he left, but I am proud of what he achieved with us.

    I will argue no longer. Seeing as all of my posts' "likes" far outweigh their "unlikes", I am satisfied that the majority on here DO appreciate what Kenny did for us.

    Can't wait for the Wolves game. Hope we win, but Jackett will most certainly be getting a standing ovation from me, and I'm sure Holloway will be the first to agree with me.

    I think the argument as to whether KJ was any good comes down to this:
    1. Name other other managers in League 1 and the Championship who achieved what he achieved in his time with us?
    2.Name other managers in League 1 and the Championship who achieved what he achieved in his time with us on his budget?
    3. Name the players went on to have successful careers after leaving Millwall. (Grabban is the only one who crops on these posts)
    4.If you were doing well in your job for 6 years and someone offered you more money to do the same job with what you perceive to be better prospects would you stay or go? (remember KJ isn't a Millwall fan. He was doing his job)

    When Kenny returns I would like to see a few rounds of 'there's only one Kenny Jacket.' He did a great job for us overall and is one of our longest serving managers and despite what anyone says he made a positive difference at our club. Let's be different this is Wall. COYL.

These guys all make massive contributions but it's all about team now and always, individual awards are fantastic but without ya team mates , the club and the supporters you are just another f*****.

    Its my birthday today and I need to discuss with you all. The first game I saw at the DEN 1957 division 3 south I think Lincoln (the programme is in the loft)
    1. Legdens. Len Julian, Joe Broadfoot, BrianSnowden and Alex Stepney.
    The Dark years.
    2, The team of 1972, Weller, Possee, Dunphy, Burnett etc.
    Another Dark period.
    3, 1988. Sherringham, Cascarino, Dawes (remember the fith goal he scored from 30 yards against Coventry Speedy in goal)
    Another Dark period.
    4. 2004 Cup final. Would Raldino have played as well if Muscatt had not been injured?
    5. The jacket years, two Wembley appearence, stability!
    Have any of you read Family life, death and football. A year on the front line with a propper club by Michael Calvin?
    If not please read it and then s*** Jackett offI don't think you will.

    Bless you all, the one thing that binds us together is our MILLWALL. Our Club Our Team Our People.

      @hernebaylion: Happy Birthday mate! I've read the book too, and I fully support everything you say!

      One thing I would add though, is that the period between 1999 and 2004 (disregarding Mcghee's last season) was a particularly happy period for me. Almost every player seemed to give 100 er cent in that period from the starting line-up right through the subs bench. The league winning team of Warner, Ryan, Dyche, Nethercott, Lawrence, Livermore (early years), Cahill, Reid, Ifill, Harris, Sadlier! And even the bit-part players and players from surrounding seasons such as Gueret, Kinet, Moody, Neill, Muscat, Sweeney!

      Extremely enjoyable to watch in those years!

        Thanks for the congrats, we should all be supporting Holloway with the latest rebirth of our club. I find it difficult to understand the slagging off of tatic's, line up etc. on this board. See Millwallgras post at 23.36 5/9 a good positive post. We know during this season we are going to have disapointments, but I bet we will supprise a lot of pundits. Top 10 finnish!
