Millwall chief won't curb emotional Holloway after warning

JOHN Beryslon wants Ian Holloway to continue wearing his heart on his sleeve despite being sent to the stands for berating a referee last week.

Holloway was formally warned about his conduct by the Football Association after a row broke out on the touchline during ten-man Millwall's 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers.

Assistsant boss Marc Bircham was also removed from the dugout and it is understood he will admit an FA charge of improper conduct.

But Lions chairman Berylson does not want Holloway to become any less emotional in the future.

"I love Ollie the way he is," said Berylson. "He is very emotional but I back him all the way. I wouldn't change him and I don't want to cap him.

"I'm as angry as he was about the Blackburn game and I like that he wears his heart on his sleeve."

        Two week break now, either too long or too short.

        Which will it be Ollie? 😉

      @John: Plus the contracts that they sign for, it anit going to happen, he has to prove once again what he can do on a small budget, if that happens then I am sure all his detractors will come around (lets hope at least the first part of that happens)

      @John: I wouldn't give him another penny until he plays a settled team. We have a good team that went and got results at Derby,Wigan,Wolves and Cardiff then he mucked around and changed it. Its no coincidence that since Shittu has returned we have been shipping goals,We have been unlucky with injuries and Edwards is a big loss but that's not the reason we are losing games. PLAY A SETTLED TEAM.

    we all love the fact that Ollie wears his heart on his sleeve but i do wish he would find us a settled 11 and stop the rotation crap and make players fight for their places and not just wait for the merry go round to spin their way....i know we have injuries but thats when the other guys have to prove their worth.

    We love IH, but he has to start playing a settled team, mainly back four. Stop getting old players in, there are some decent youngsters at the club, give them game time.

      @dpendet:
      Freddie O and Easter seem to be pairing up well. Freddie def a promising addition to any team.

    I think ollie is right man for the job , think that this season is a building process ? Without loads of money you can't turn things around straight away . Once he can get his own sort of players in and get rid of deadwood that he inherited , we will become a strong force to be reckoned with ?

      @gman: I agree that this season is a building process but even more important is that we avoid relegation. If he can achieve that we then have to ensure that he gets rid of the out of contract players who we the supporters consider to be deadwood and that the players he does bring in are better than the players he decides he doesn't want to keep.

      @gman: agree with that, too many fans are quick to s*** him off, i know things need to improve but i dont think we can blame the manager all the time, this 'rot' is now onto a third manager! Surely it's time to start looking at the players

        I agree with you there i was blaming the player's under Lomas ,but i got s l a gg e d off big time,and it was the defence then and it is the defence now,under Lomas i made it that 65% of goals against were down to rank bad defending or school boy errors,nothing has changed.I am afraid ollie has to take some of the blame as he has had time to sort it out,but has failed to do so.

      @gman: I totally agree. I personally think, unfortunately, that he inherited such a bad team and bad attitude that a year later he still has to use the season time to experiment. This means working at a loss, like any business is expected to do at first. He cannot say it like a politician cannot say "sorry, not going to be able to turn things around for another 3 years" and expect to be voted in.

      Expect a better second half to the season and the progressive rise of youth and new players.

        @SE14: I'm gonna start an argument-

        Dunne deadwood, squad player or captain?

        I think the answer will be split between the three.

        So we've been here many years, IH has been here less than one.

        How do we see it?

        Whatever way a tough decision.

    He is to emotional and spends to much time arguing with officials,His energy and focus should be on the pitch. A player looks to the bench for leadership and guidance and all he see's is our little nutter screaming and jumping around. I think that attitude transfers to the players and panic sets in, I love Holloway's passion but he needs to remain calm.

    Good old JB, standing by his man. Whether you love Ollie or not, JB is doing the right thing by backing his first choice manager.

    A few years back australian cricket went with a rotation policy and rested blokes who were in form to give them a break. It very quickly turned to s***!! Blokes should be fit at this point in a season , Christ, it's not like they,re getting the suitcase punched out of em by Mike Tyson. Settle a decent winning combo and quit the excuses. I like Ollie but s***, so much f***** chit chat.

      @Bones: while the break is on Ollie should put players on building site or in a warehouse. Then they will no wot a real SHIFT is.
