Millwall captain: Players have to take the heat off Ollie

©
©

ALAN Dunne has called on Millwall's players to take the heat off under-fire manager Ian Holloway.

Holloway admitted that he is "not popular with the fans" after the Lions were beaten 3-0 by Middlesbrough on Tuesday, a result which keeps them six points adrift of safety.

The Millwall boss is facing calls from the terraces to step down but yesterday received the backing of chairman John Berylson.



And Dunne insists the 51-year-old is not to blame for the club's plight – claiming not even Chelsea's Jose Mourinho would be able to cope with the Lions’ injury list.

"Holloway is a fantastic manager and I honestly believe that if Mourinho came in tomorrow, it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference," said the defender.

"It's not the manager. We as players aren't doing it enough. Holloway could go tomorrow and it wouldn't make a difference because we're missing key players through injury.



"The manager isn't working with the squad that he put together.

"I feel sorry for the chairman because he's put a lot of money into buying new players and half of them aren't even available.

"We've got quite a few injuries at the moment and that's really hurting us.

"If we can get a few of those players in back in time, it will strengthen the squad because we haven't got enough depth at the moment.

"If you look at our bench on Tuesday, we're missing some important players. A club like Millwall can't complete at this level without a full squad.

"Nicky Bailey is a big player and we miss him. Stefan Maierhofer can cause a bit of carnage up front and there's Paris Cowan-Hall who we haven't seen anything of.

"Shaun Cummings is a loss at right back because Jimmy Abdou is being asked to play out-of-position.

"Lee Martin can create chances whether he starts or comes off the bench, and he's out. We've been unlucky with injuries. It's very hard to deal with that.

"But the players have got to take responsibility as well. The manager is having a difficult season and has had to make a lot of changes to the squad.

"I don't blame the manager – the players have to take a look at themselves.

"Everyone is trying and giving 100 percent, including the manager, and just because you lose 3-0 it doesn't mean you're not giving your all.

"We've got to stay together and keep our team spirit.

"The manager is doing all he can and we feel like we owe him because we haven't been anywhere near the level that we should've been at this year.

"Everyone is giving their all but it's not good enough at the moment."

      I tell you what Dunne, why don't you take Ollie to Bibas night club in Bromley so he can get s*** faced on booze like you do. It might make him feel better. Oh and players getting injured in training is usually a sign of poor training methods and unfit players...... Finally Mourinho would deliver because he would balance the team, change the captain, drop Forde and inspire people. Quite the opposite to the confused. Com manager we have.

      @crow191049: first time on here, not in anyone's pocket and do not know anyone else on here. So here goes. Dunno came through the youth set up, surely that is what we want. Yes he has his bad days. But he always gives his all. What do you want him to stay. We are gong to lose every game and go down. He is captain he has to stay positive. JB has been a good chairman, he has put millions in. Lacey-Ferguson would have sld the ground for houses and shut us down. JB stopped that. Most people thought Ollie was the right manager. Especially after he kept us up. But even I must admit it is time to go. You can't keep changing teams, changing tactics mid-game, footballers aren't the cover its people around. Just play them where are supposed to be. If he wI'll not resign then put him on gardening leave. He will not like that. Nigel Gibbs is experienced with Chopper as number 2, he knows Millwall, knows the youngsters and has done well with the under 21's. That's is. Don't shoot. Just my opinion. Supporter since 1967. Supporters club member until last season. Have been season ticket holder many times. Went away a lot at one time. Who else would ant to own/manage us with the minority of hooligans dragging us through the mud every season. Be careful what you wish for.

        Av a word on that comment. I was there and witnessed the whole lot, as did my family who were with me....no hooligans that I saw....I saw general retaliation of the human nature type given the crap that was thrown their way.

    Dunne, I beg to differ on your opinion about the players we're missing. I don't think Hoff could cause carnage in a fruit market for example. You personally gave spouted out this crap all season. 'Never again' after yet another home thrashing. Then what happened? Oh yes, more home thrashings. Abdou may well be playing out of position but then so are you. You should be washing the kit not wearing it.

      @NICKOLA: Nick, I have never been his biggest fan and I think he is one of the luckiest players around how he has been given contract after contract at the Wall, but I blame the whole unit players managers coaches trainers medical and not forgetting the board.
      JB has put millions into the club and I thank him for that as I would say that most of us would, but if he had someone who worked for him in his day job who produced results like Ollie has since last January, would they still ne employed by JB (no) is the answer.
      What is not understood by all of these people and I have said it before is that this is our club and with out us it would not exist, we are not the kind of team who attract pot hunters (you need to win some first) we are not fashionable club or a celebrity club but we are MILLWALL a unique club that invoke's passion in its supporters and I don't think they fully understand what it means to us to support the WALL.

    Then the training and conditioning regime needs to be overhauled. Far to many players are getting injured and taking knocks in training, its irritating that we then find out that they are unavailable for 4 weeks plus. This will be key if we want to play with a smaller more quality laden squad going forward that can play 95% and more of a season. One of the first things Wenger did when he went to Arsenal was overhaul the whole dietary and training regime to squeeze more performance out of his squad and it worked a treat. Millwall need to a bit of the same as we cant keep going on like this with injuries

            @NICKOLA: Something along the lines of once the final whistle has been blown on our last game of the season Olly, JB and Ambler immediately make a mad dash through the executive suite (JB has had his knee op so his good to go you see) and into the back of the ground where Olly unveils his true masterpiece the Wonkavator - the glass lift that's has preoccupied his mind all season since that fateful evening to the theater to see Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. They blast out of the ground and JB leaves the keys to the ground and owership to Dunne... the worthy heir

    Dunne in my opinion you have been poor all season, for someone who has been at the club so long and given the honour of wearing the armband you should be sweating blood for this club but you are too far out of your depth. As I have said before, hand in the armband and cancel the rest of your contract because you don't belong here any more. We need a captain who is a leader and not given the armband as a token gesture because you been here for a while, step forward Sid Nelson.

        @Barnlion: Actually that was down to our 'acting manager' at the time aka Andy Ambler. A CEO who really knows what he's doing. When he's not signing players on behalf of err... nobody then he's off to have a look see at how other clubs do their scouting - during which he's signing cheques to let Harford have a drive through France and Germany looking for players. He did find one who went to the jewel of the North-Scunthorpe. Mind you, he did bring back some cheese and wine so Ambler can nibble on that whilst looking at the 6k Millwall supporters that will be watching on Saturday.
        If I ever win the lottery, they'll be a blue bus in the car park and he'll be holding hands with Holloway, Dunne, Hoyte, Shittu etc.etc. as they run towards it. The biggest game of 'chain he' you'll ever see.

    We have had more than our far share of injuries this season. Our season was effectively ended when Carlos Edwards got Injured. We have pretty much been in free fall since. How and why do our players get so easily injured and most at the training ground? Is Bobby Backache a secret Hamster and intentionally injuring the players? How many times have we missed oppurtunities to score then been hit on the break and the other team has scored straight away? The midfiled and defence must be fed up with doing lots of work with no end product. Another missed chance and the whole teams head drops. Ollie has brought in new players. Instead of lifting everyone the rot has set in and brought everyone down.

    Personally I do like Ollie, and fair play he has tried. The club was in such a poor state when he came in he has had to try and build it up from the training ground to trying to get a scouting network in with little funds with all the injuries and the contract fiasco. Most managers would struggle. But.... The tactics can be so confusing for us fans watching so how the players are supposed to cope nobody knows. Just needed to try and get some conistency in the back 4 for a start and build the team up from that. More positive attacking football.

    I can see what Ollie is trying to do trying to play the ball out from th back instead of just lumping it forward and it pinging straight back to us. Just 2 strikers up front Ollie especially at home and then find a consistant pairing to let them build there confidence up instead of one on one off, out of 4 not so good strikers is just going to knock them down one by one.

    Maybe goign down and starting again is the answer because being the Championship whipping biys for the last 3 years has been no fun at all.

    ok i accept that in a ideal world edwards and baily would be in the starting line up ,
    but they got injured in the first month of the season .
    you as captain should be talking to ih more than anybody and taking responsibilty for what goes on in 90 mins on the pitch .
    you should be saying im not good enough for ch ive played my whole life at fb.
    no you would not say that because you no you are a******* lucky to still be playing.
    you know your out of contract at the end of the season and you know your going to be shown the door .
    you talk about how long you have been here ,i bet when we leave your never set foot in the den again

    Sorry alan, nice sentiments but heard it all before, its holloway who has put all the pressure on the players, he never takes responsibility, when he played 3 at the back he said the 'players' couldnt deal with it, etc etc. he does not have to play jimmy at right back, you have played there for years FFS!, webster should be partnering Hoos, but holloway fuc##ed him up!, and holloway has had 2 teams this season, and still cant get them to win! and mourihno would have us organised and winning within 2 games . probably with his first game.

    I didn't realise it was your turn again to spout forth, but Holloway must think that as you are the Captain and Real Wall that the fans will listen to what you have to say. Wrong, All this does is really wind people up. We watch the games week in week out and surprisingly enough we are actually intelligent enough to work out for ourselves what is going wrong. Yes we have injury problems, do we have more than our fair share, probably yes. But that's why the loan market is there, but if he insists on bringing in players that are no better than what we actually have available then what's the point.
    Other managers when they walk into a club look at the players they have available, they look at what they are good at, look at what their best position is and build a formation and tactics around that, until they can bring in players that can play they way they want. Holloway, decides a formation and tries to fit square pegs into round holes uses Premiership formation with League One players and when it doesn't work uses knee jerk reaction to correct it and wonders why it all goes wrong. Looking forward to Saturday for the first home win in a little while.

    I thought it was a Manager that has made c**p signings.
    I thought it was a Manager that only plays 1 upfront - and will not change that.
    I thought it was a Manager that says one thing then does another.
    I thought it was a Manager that is too stubborn to resign a while back.
    I thought it was a Manager that plays a youngster for a couple of games,then they disappear.

        @82wall: What's proper about him, is it the fact that we have become accustomed to accepting players that are just not good enough to pull on a Millwall shirt, and run around and his case always touching his boots and tugging at his socks.
        Any player that we had at the club and produced good displays on a regular basis in my mind would be proper Millwall and Alan Dunne is not one of them and by the way wipe your spit off the window.

      Alan Dunne is saying what he thinks he needs to say. He is also trying to look after his own interests. I still believe that things would have been better with Paul Robinson as captain and that our loaned out forwards could be helping to fill the gaps.

    To JB, AMBLER AND HOLLOWAY. With sincerest apologies to Roy Orbison.

    Golden days before they end
    Whisper secrets to the wind
    The chamionsip won't be near you - any more

    Tender nights before they fly
    Send falling stars that seem to cry
    The fans don't want you any more, it's over

    It breaks your heart in two, to know it's really true
    But, oh, what will you do when they say to you
    "We want someone new, we're through, we're through "

    It's over, it's over, it's over

    All the fans in block twenty five
    Start to wave then say goodbye
    You wont be seeing pay cheques anymore

    Setting suns before they fall

    But you'll see empty seats after all

    As a squad you are all paid very good money. (Compared to the real world) Squad players should come in and be up for it and perform. You are all in a privileged position and despite the fact we may have had injuries, so what, give me the shirt that I would be proud to wear. I could also run around like a headless chicken for 90 minutes and your weeks wage will pay for season tickets for a few years!

    Injuries? Yes, a few, but no more on average than any other club has.
    Giving 100%? I will grant you that we have seen a much better attitude in recent weeks but when we go behind the team falls apart and that is down to the manager's motivation and preparation of the team.
    Some really poor decisions have been made in terms of playing staff in recent years. Some of that is down to lack of budget, some of it down to Jackett's refusal to blood youngsters, but most of it is down to terrible decisions that have been made to offer contracts that are too short or too long or even to offer any contract at all. Why were Webster and Hoyte signed at all? What about that Argentinian left back whose name I can't remember who never played a game? Who failed to renew Trotter, Henry and Malone's contracts so we got a pittance for them? Who signed Martinez, who is never fit or never picked? Who continues to play Forde in goal despite the obvious evidence that his game has gone down the toilet? Who plays Dunne at centre half when he isn't even a good right back (as he knew, which is why he signed Edwardes) and made him captain? Who puts a 19 year old in defence, makes him captain and says he is the future then drops him? To say that IH is to blame for everything is clearly nonsense, but to say he isn't to blame for a lot of the above is also nonsense. A year and a half in and we are no better organised - in fact Lomas' team looked better in defence, which is where the real problems lie. OK, lack of a goalscorer is an issue but if we hadn't shipped the ridiculous number of goals at our end we wouldn't be in this mess. Holloway has failed, end of.

      @junkmale: the only things that I would pick out of your post are your comments on Malone, Trotter and Henry, who I believe didn't want to extend their time here. Secondly on the issues surrounding Dunne being picked at CB - Sid was doing well in CB, but he then got sent off for a silly challenge and so, wasn't available. Webster hasn't looked very solid from the off (because not being consistently chosen? Debatable..)
      Beevers is the REAL anomaly for me as he would be my 1st choice, if in form, but he doesn't look like the player he can be at the moment.
      Which is why I think Dunne is in the team. Plus, just recently, he has kept consecutive clean sheets alongside Hoov, so a lot of people would probably slate Holloway from dropping him!
      These are just my observations and opinions, but the reason I wanted to respond to your post in particular was to say THANKYOU for having a BALANCED view. Even though our opinions Differ I respect your opinion. Too many fans see this as totally black and white when it factually isn't.
      SEE YOU ALL DOWN THE DEN SATURDAY!
      COYL.

      @lionheart: totally agree, dunne is an atrocious player, but i have sussed out why ollie keeps picking him.

      as captain he has to get the mad ones medication and of course he has tampered with it so eveytime ollie sees him he thinks he is watching Gary Cahill but seriously Dunne has no positional awarness, has no leadership. anyone see him as the studio guest versus cardiff, had his head down all the time, made no eye contact with the presenters and thats our captain.

      be prepared the Alanu Dunne fan club with be disliking all these comments because he is 100% committed.

    Dunne suggests that if Mourinho came in tomorrow, it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference. It might not if he only stayed ten minutes but I bet it would if he stayed for the rest of the season. Mourinho's teams can defend and the players all work hard.

    If you don't have ability, you make up for it with effort and physical presence. If you’ve ever read Roy Keane’s autobiography, he talks about how Fergie’s mantra was “win the physical battle on the pitch, then your football will shine through”. How many players do we have that you’d back every week to win their personal physical battle against their opposite number? We have been playing some nice patient football at times, but we just do not have the grit to scrap and impose ourselves when we need to.

    That Middlesbrough team we played on Tuesday was full of brick sh*t-houses - I bet they couldn't believe their luck when they saw our skinny lot line up in the tunnel. Meanwhile, we have players like Gueye showing up overweight and our ‘better’ players, like Fabbrini, Abdou and Williams looking about 8 stone dripping wet. Who in our team is any opposition player going to be worried about?!

    If people don't want to hear it, don't read it then?! Our players and manager get asked questions after the game like EVERY club. We are obliged to send someone to comment, the players and manager don't ring aldo and tell him to put this on here. Some people need to get a grip, and learn how to spell while they're at it.

    A lot of people on here are getting on gregory and hoffs,backs,as for gregory yes he has missed a good few chances as did morrison and harris and sheringham when they came to millwall so all i say is give the knocking a rest,as for hoff and i direct this at you NICKOLA,you keep knocking him,but remember this,when he came last year that was the start of our run that got us to stay up,also he is involved more than you you think in some of the good thing's we do and IMO hoff along with edwards,woolford and garven were the four who played the biggest part in keeping us up.
    Yes hoff could jump a bit more,but if he does and wins the header who is playing off him to play the header answer no one so,he has to try and control the ball and hold it,which in IMO he does well,when he plays at least the other teams back four have something to think about,when he dont play their back four have a complete afternoon off.
    LONG LIVE THE HOFF
    sorry about that NICKOLA

      @jim1222: I've never slagged off Gregory. He's a decent player. Let's get that out of the way first. As for Hoff, well sorry but he IS crap. He came last year and you say did his bit. Have you seen that sitter he missed? My cat could have put that way ffs. Thenhe p***** off for the 'Premiership'. Ok, he's trying to better himself. Good for him. Deluded? Absolutely. If you really think he's championship level then his next move will enable him to stay in the championship with another team. Personally and in my honest opinion I think he'd be lucky to get a game at League one level. Truth of the pudding will be if I'm right ----or you are.

        @junkmale:
        And this is the problem with Holloway,
        builds players up one week, drops them the next.
        Tells the fans he is dropping a player because he is fat,
        then brings in someone who is really fat.
        This kind of inconsistency has been his trade mark this season,
        and it has rubbed off on the squad.
        Personally I think he is washed out and shot to pieces,
        and needs to take a back seat. He has created a toxic and divided
        athmosphere amongst the fans (just read the posts and threads on this board).
        This club as a whole, from top to bottom, might start to be more united
        when he is gone, and unfortunately, that will more than likely be a while off yet.

      @SE17 Lion: Its our turn !!!!! come on we shouldn't be in this position , we should be at least mid table if the work was done from when we survived last season, but it wasn't , all season Ollie has been chopping & changing the squad , changing tactics & basically not knowing where or which way we are going , well time has basically run out on us & were heading for Div 1, the Sheffield game at home was a major nail in the coffin , with another one from the Rotherham game. However what amazes me is we don't learn from our mistakes because if we did we wouldn't be in this position of going down again , its totally crap , its crap that there are p*** poor excuses ie injuries crap, we started the season the same as everyone else , we are in the bottom 3 because were not good enough ..simples & simples was something that should have been addressed last may when we survived & not thinking the same team would put us up mid table ... NOLU

    If I have to read and/or hear someone say or imply that because Dunne has been at the club for years he knows what we're going through or gives his all because he's "proper wall" i'm going to lose it. A bad right back, an even worse centre back, one of the quietest men on the pitch. Ladies and gentlemen, the millwall captain.

    And we still wonder why we're in the sh*t

      @Kitch29: So right Kitch. He is about as bad as it gets as a footballer, together with Harding who is the worse left back we have ever had, even worse than Coleman in the 70/80's.

    Yeah we have been poo all season, and from watching teams beat us I dont think there has been much worse than us, rotherham and huddersfield maybe (except blackpool) we are were we are because we havent been good enough, but look at Fulham and Wigan, Birmingham, leeds all struggling in this division, it is a hard tough league, and you need to be prepared physically and mentally, we came up to this division on merit and stayed the first season, but after that we needed to build, what could Kenny of done with the money made available to Lomas and Ollie?
    I honestly think if we hadnt changed manager and backed him for another year or 2 then let him go to get a new challenge, we would be a comfortable 15-8th club with potential of knocking on the play offs, we should have cemented our league position before now.
    Who knows Ollie could have done a good job coming to a confident team on the outskirts of play offs.

      @brooker: I do feel had Kenny received the same funds as Lomas and Holloway we wouldn't be in this situation. Why It wasn't available for him I don't know.

    Reading the general opinion on here and the sad state of Wall from top to bottom of the club plus the standard of football being served up what everyone's decision on following Wall next season whether you be a season ticket holder or generally attend to casual attending would be good to get a poll as an accurate measure of the fans
    So continue like OR stay away Dislike

    Apparently, Dunne is a doubt for Saturday, he's come down with Cherry Blossom poisoning.

    I thought we were in our current situation due to crap players with no heart, bottle or grit for a fight!! Obviously not its down to injuries as written by the Worst Millwall captain ever bar none!!

    Charlton went down in a shambles 4 years ago or so and Powell sacked virtually the lot and got them up in 2 years

    we can do the same - only keep the ones under 21 or so and get a completely new squad- total clear-out and rebuild under our new wizard recruitment guy

    I call it Tim's Two Year Plan

      @timchimes:

      The new scout is a shrew for Holloway. Part of the problem. If the clown goes we'll still be with a member of his entourage - another fine mess.

    This is yet another example of wheeling out a"player" when things are getting rough for IH. How many times now have we read this sort of deflection. Only by IH pushing off will the club improve.
    The chairman treats the fans with contempt, he hardly ever attends a game or talks to the real supporters, he listens to Ambler and Holloway who are the leading culprits for Millwall's problems.
    Clear out the lot.

    I can't go on Saturday. To those that will be going-I salute you.
    I'm not going to predict the starting eleven. Who can?
    What I will say is that by the final whistle our season will be finished.
    To those like me, who think it's a bad thing to happen-It is.
    To those that think the drop will be a good thing with Fred coming back etc.- You're wrong. Wait and see how long it takes us to get back up again.
    To those in the boardroom-You are an absolute disgrace.
    To those players who will be let go who think they're good enough-Let's see where you end up.
    To those who have Millwall in their hearts come rain or shine- I'm proud to be one of you.

      @NICKOLA: sense ya frustration mate, there's so much ya could say but the trip down the s****** should never be excepted or tolerated. Anyway, I guess mathematically it's not done just yet so we look once again to the terraces for the strength of voice . Backs to the wall and out we come to play.

      @NICKOLA: shame.

      Irrespective of the manager, chairman, players, tactics and current form, it is now our team need your support.

      And if everyone had the same sentiment as I have just stated then we would have a bigger ground, full up, top class players, playing in the top league and most importantly money to achieve this.

      Instead we have 8500 die hards and 40000 wembley wan kers

      @NICKOLA: apart from the odd rogue on here we are all passionate and love this club whatever our opinions! i agree with your points totally, but i know that whoever the players are, whoever 'runs' the club or is chairman, i see our LION badge and our name MILLWALL, and that is who i am, from the day my uncle first took me, there was still new cross speedway which he took me to as well,( how old am i), from relegation to the 4th division, to beating a fulham side containing johnny haynes etc, the record undefeated home run, to Kitchener, Possee, Weller, F A Cup final and Wembley !!!! so whatever holloway says it is OUR club and always will be !!!

    There is still 33pts 2 play 4. Call me crazy but I honestly think we will beat the drop. only when it's mathamaticly impossible it's over. Plus we still got a few teams to play in and around us. Holloway aint going nowhere so it's time we all dig deep and all stick togetger. Let's get behind these boys on saturday and end this rot think about it ppl we've been through it all this season. A new manager, injuries, bad decisions, terrible results, players in/out possible relegation plus much more. So guess what? Things can only get better. This is what football is all about. COYL......

    Holloway admitted that he is "not popular with the fans" after the Lions were beaten 3-0 by Middlesbrough on Tuesday,

    Just since Tuesday then?
