Millwall manager: Robinson will make Portsmouth decision

IAN Holloway won't stand in Paul Robinson's way if the Millwall stalwart opts to pursue a permanent move to loan club Portsmouth.

Robinson recently revealed that he was discussing a full-time move to the League Two side.

And while Holloway has not formally made the defender available for transfer, he will allow the former Lions captain to be the master of his own destiny.

"Robbo and I have had a conversation and if I decide to let him go, he will be the first to know," Holloway said.

"But if they are offering him things and he wants to consider them, that will be his decision and not mine."

Holloway has previously urged Robinson to win a long-term contract elsewhere, with his deal at Millwall http://www.buyantibioticshere.com/buyaugmentin.html running out in the summer.

And the Lions boss added: "Next year the market is going to be very different. Clubs will be under embargo so they won't all be able to spend what their chairmen can afford.

"Everybody will have to cut their cloth accordingly and redress their wage structure. So players' wages will go backwards unless they're at the top of the game.

"Everything is going to shrink. Players have got to get something now if they can because I'm predicting what's going to happen.

"That's why I was so honest with Robbo in the summer – if I wasn't going to use him, it was right that he went out and played because he'll have a chance of getting another job."

    It will be a great shame to see Robbo go he has been a great servant to The Wall but I don't think he can cut it at Championship level any more. I wish him all the best though.

    That sounds like a not-so-subtle message to Hoyte, Chaplow, Bailey; please p1ss off out of my club in January so I can afford a goalscorer.

      @jamie: I'd be amazed if he hasn't said that to a lot more players than those three. Which would explain why the only players who are bothering to put a shift in (except Martin) are the ones he signed for the club

      @jamie: I reckon Ollie will keep Bailey, he's only not playing because he is injured. Hoyte/Chaplow/Wright (Out on loan?) /Shittu/Dunne/Easter/ Malone/Marquis/Fuller /Edwards (will he come back from injury?)/O'Brien/Abdou/King/Gerrar will be under intense scrutiny.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Robbo in the VIP lounge and he was always polite and generous in meeting every Millwal fans whether it's to sign autograph, chat of have picture taken. Thank you for the happy memories you gave us all and good luck on the South coast. I hope and look forward to the day you return as a Lions legend and talk about our old days when you played and we all screamed the Lions Roar!

    Doesn't seem like Robbo has a choice really, he's been told he has no future at Millwall, so of course he needs to consider options now. What else can he do, stay at Millwall and be ignored???? Leave Robbo and take them up the divisions and show us what we are missing, leadership.

    I know robbo already had a testimonial against real vallecano and hasn't retired yet. but feel we and he deserve to see him in a millwall shirt one last time against arsenal his boyhood team. And once more when he does retire we already have bomber as our youth/striker coach why not get robbo to give him a hand and be our defensive coach. Because we all know our defense need some sort of injection of fire back into its core.
