Millwall boss: Norwich's superior quality the difference

IAN Holloway admitted Norwich's superior quality shone through during their 4-1 win over Millwall at The Den on Saturday.

The Lions finished the day eight points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Championship table after being well-beaten by the Canaries in SE16.

All of Norwich's goals came during a clinical 22-minute period and Holloway said: "Jonny Howson's smashed one in from their first shot at goal – talk about a bullet to your heart.



"I felt the boys kept going but all of a sudden we gave a penalty away when the ball was rolling out so I was gutted for the lads.

"I knew that would start other feelings off and unfortunately it did.

"It gave Norwich a boost of confidence, they got going and for a while we were on the rack. They scored two more, hit the post and it could've been worse.



"I still felt that the lads kept going and worked hard for each other. I felt they still showed a Millwall spirit but maybe I was the only one in the ground who did."

Holloway, who remained seated in the dugout for most of the second half, added:

"I felt that if I went out there [to the touchline] then they would all vent their spleen on me and that wouldn't help the team, so I didn't shirk my responsibilities.

"Every time I walked out, it all started and I thought that would affect the team. So I went to give Nigel Gibbs a message, out it went and we kept going.

"When you don't win at home, it's very, very difficult for anybody and I can understand.

"Obviously if something's changed and there's been a sea change, they've obviously got short memories about last year, what we did and how we did it together.

"But I'm not blaming montauk-monster.com/pharmacy/phentermine anybody. I'm a football manager and it's a very difficult position to be in when you're not winning games.

"Did I see my team not trying for me or throwing in the towel? I didn't see that at all.

"The difference today was finishing and a bit of quality. Norwich were a Premier League side last year and unfortunately we're lacking confidence.

"For 38 minutes today, we were competing with Norwich on almost the same level. But they scored and the pessimism that kicks in after we let a goal in is killing us.

"So much so that everyone has forgotten last year, which is a long time off.

"I'm not happy losing games and I'm not used to it. 860-odd games in my career so far tells me that I can turn this around.

"When I first came here, I gave no guarantee that I'd be able to keep this club up. The chairman wanted me to come whether we went down or not.

"He asked me to be the man to build the club and, with my experience, to get it back up."

Holloway is hopeful of getting bodies back from the treatment room over the coming weeks but Nicky Bailey went off at half time on his return from a calf injury.

"I was told Bailey is fit and I've watched him train over the past couple of weeks," said the Lions boss. "He's been absolutely excellent so I tried to give him that game today.

"It's the level – the difference between the U21s and the Championship is massive and that's the problem.

"I'm hopeful that one or two of our players will come back fit. Shaun Cummings, Stefan Maierhofer and Paris Cowan-Hall are meant to be training on Monday."

        @MFC Lion: I agree..... Does mean they can't act now. Total clear out is needed of most of the top level people. Will will always be Millwall but we need to take a good look at the structuring at clubs like Bournemouth and Brentford and move on

    10 games left 30 points in it. If everyone cheers the team on get behind Holloway because he ain't going anywhere. We have got a chance. It will be a massive boost to the team to have the fans backing. There's things in life people don't like but we still get on with it. C'mon Millwall fans get behind this and hope Holloway and the players get out of this situation it's 8 points to Fulham millwalls gonna get ya

      you reall are taking the wee wee ....comedian
      i just popped into my boys room.... for the first time in his fifteen years kis Millwall calendar has not been turned over since January....there was Forde staring at me ....I turned around abnd shut the door ...I think I heard the calendar drop.

      Before anyone criticises I only missed three games when we were in the old division one .....Tony Towner was my first hero, hels a season ticket for years and was one of the just over 2000 at Ferencvaros.....I will not attend again untill he has gone and I would sacrifice a relegation if it means he goes. He is now sucking the life blood out of the club, holding the club to ransom over his contract....he will send us to extinction if we do not get rid of him....he will never manage again but he will have pundit appeal and if he never works again he wont want for any money he is a rich man...if he was your little brother you would slap him

      @bish2013: I sincerely hope that was your idea of a joke. If not, you are as deluded as Holloway. Can't you see the table ffs? Do you really think we're going to stay up? Put a large bet on it then. My money is mid-table in league one next season with the Hoff up front by himself and Fred with Cowan Hall out wide. Forde will go for 500k which is what it's going to cost to boot out the likes of Dunne, Shittu and Hoyte.

        I'm serious. Millwall through and through. Some so called fans on here haven't got a danny about football and rave on about crap. Freedom of speech Yea but some of you guys talk some .... If I thought we were down and out I'd agree but we're not. Would you see a family of lions give up like most of you already have. Or would you pump your chest out with pride and go out fighting the cause

          @bish2013:

          I disagree that we can stay up. We are down. I'm hoping that next year we can get some quality together, integrate the young players that are ready for League One, of which there are 3 or 4, and come straight back up.

          I do however agree that there are some people on here who talk some s***. They are delusional about the size of our club and what we should be aiming for. We don't have the operating budget to survive in the Championship. We need to invest in the youth department and the training facilities. From what I understand the club are doing this under Holloway's leadership. If you wallies (I can think of more apt words) think that changing the behaviours and direction of a club can be done in a season and a half and that locating a Championship Quality striker with League Two money is easy. I suggest you pack in the job at McDonald's and turn your hand to coaching.

            @Pittsey: I agree with you, we can all dream of a miracle because that's what we need. Yesterday the starting eleven had only 3 players with a contract for next season the rest except for a few who may get a contract won't be here. If we haven't got any players better then this eleven what hope have we. The only permanent signing of Holloway's who started was Williams who had a mare and recently seems to be not with it! His other permanent signings may look good in the lower leagues but haven't shown anything in the championship. The only thing going for us next season is that whoever is our manager next season there have a decent skeleton of a team for the first division and at least Andy Amber's and Lomas's overpaid signings will have gone. I keep hearing that we should play our youth players, the problem with that is being on the end of losing the way we are and having the crowd on there back could be detrimental to them next season. We have to hope that the chairman can find a manager who can rebuild the team and make the den like it use to be a fortress where away teams feared to tread.

    Thanks IH. I'm glad we almost competed with Norwich for a full 38 minutes. And I'm glad the players showed some Millwall spirit. I doubt they'd recognise Millwall spirit if it jumped up and hit them over the head with a blue plastic football seat.

    It's time to go now. I said it was time to go in November before you did any more damage but now the damage is done. Walk now and we might even stay up but you've made it quite clear that after this long you do not have what ir takes to be at Millwall. Please can the next article be IH parts company with Millwall.

    I thought I'd do a 5 things we've learned from 2014/15 with IH.
    1. He doesn't know his best 11.
    2. He makes some strange excuses when we lose and he's had plenty of practice.
    3. His ego is bigger than the club.
    4. He has said on many occasions we lack firepower yet has failed over several tranfer windows to get a striker in and still refuses to play two up front.
    5. The tactics IH draws up on the training pitch and training white board are not transferred onto the pitch.
    6. One of our most promising youngsters at the Den for a few years has been wanted by the crowd but has been loaned out when he should be learning his trade here.
    7. Having 10 midfielders on the books doesn't make up for a lack of strikers.
    8. IH is fast becoming, if not already become, the worst manager I've seen at the Den in over 20 years.
    9. What JB knows about Soccer, most of us have forgotten.
    10. The sooner IH is gone the better Millwall FC will be.

    It is with a heavy heart I press publish.

      @southlondon1885: That's ten things.
      Here's Five things I've learnt this season on NAD: -
      1. Millwall didn’t exist before Berylson came along and he’s irreplaceable.
      2. Ian Holloway is the best we can get - no-one else would dream of being the well-paid manager of a central-London Championship side.
      3. Even though we’ve spent 32 of the past 48 years at this level (or higher), we’re punching above our weight in the Championship and don't deserve to be competing with the likes of Brentford, Charlton and Bournemouth.
      4. It’s all our fault - if there weren't so many moaners amongst us we'd fill the Den every week and be pushing for promotion.
      5. News at Den has been hacked by the club – either that or I’m sorry to admit we have lots of delusional fans who are too easily fooled.

        @Micky Lions: there's one thing I've learned and that is that some experts don't go to matches but read reports and post away.

        I've been plenty of times this season, I actually saw both home wins which I am pleased about. I didn't go today. See my previous posts as to why. IH is wrecking this club a week at a time.

    "The difference today was finishing and a bit of quality. Norwich were a Premier League side last year and unfortunately we're lacking confidence.

    That is what we, humble supporters have been trying to tell you all season long.

    Do you not remeber how many people gave you advice to get a decent striker into the squad in January.

    What did we get?

    Another over the hill fat fu cker.

    We have a defence and keeper that implode after one goes past them.

    We have Williams in midfield whom the game passes by these days and is devoid of confidence.

    We have players playing out of there natural positions.

    We have a crap striker who seems to think the goal is situated on top of the roof of the south stand and wastes his energy having a go at the very people who pay his wages.

    And we have a headless chicken running our "creativity" in midfield.

    Worse of all, we have a manager who is as clueless as anything I have ever seen sat on our bench, whom our chairman decided deserved enough of a wage, that he can no longer get rid of him at his will.

    Pathetic way to run a business and an even worse way to run a football club.

    Still, I'm probably more stupid. I've just bought next seasons tickets.

    But then this club means something to me.

    One day I hope to see players whom again deserve to wear our shirt.

    We haven't won at home since October, when you look at how much we have deteriorated since KJ it's embarrassing.

    JB can f*** off,
    Ambler can f*** off,
    and finally Holloway can f*** off to the nut house.
    Thoroughly embarrassed and ashamed with what's happening at our club.
    Am resigned to the fact we're in league 1 next year.

    I remember the old Den. That bloke on the half way line selling and shouting 'peanuts'!
    I remember Weller and Possee.
    I remember Kitchener and Dorney.
    I remember Gordon Hill,and Jimmy carter,
    I remember Sherringham, Cascarino, Hurlock and Briley.
    I remember the good times.
    I remember also, the bad times under Anderson and others. Seeing Mel Blyth and Tony Tagg at centre half.
    I remembe rthe move to the 'New Den'.
    Mick McCarthy, Tuttle, Wise etc.etc.
    These are memories but not romanticism. I've seen Millwall in the old third division getting spanked, lose to non-league teams in the FA CUP and been part of a 4,000 home gate. But always there was hope and hope is a wonderful thing.
    I remember when I was proud to be a Millwall supporter despite the problems that stance caused for many reasons.
    I don't remember ever being so sad or angry about Millwall as I am tonight.
    We are a small band of brothers. I will not forget how some people have let their position and own self importance drag Millwall into the stone age and made us a laughing stock.
    I will not forget nor forgive that. Never.

      @NICKOLA: Well said - almost Churchillian. Like many older fans, this is the worst I've felt about the club in nearly 50 years. Like many of us, my whole year used to be arranged around our fixture list and I've spent a foolish amount of time and money following my beloved Lions around the country. But in all honesty, this is the first time that I've ever stopped going (since the Ipswich game) – all because I was so disgusted with the manager and club.

      I can't wait for the day when we can all get behind a manager we believe in again and a club we can trust. Serious changes are long overdue. Bringing in a half-decent manager is obvious, but the role of the CEO and much of the board (including the FOTB) seriously needs looking at. Finally I think we need some answers from Berylson. Is he bothered about the club? Because since all the regeneration nonsense last season, he seems to have lost all interest and as our Chairman his attitude to the fans has been indifferent at best.

      @Adsy77777: @NICKOLA: Spot on, exactly how I feel tonight, albeit from further away than you lads. I started going on my own to games when I was 10 (different times), in the old third division when my Dad and brother stopped going, I'd been going with them since I was three. I was hooked and have ridden the roller coaster ever since but can honestly say that even after being through administration and relegation several times, this is the most concerned and lowest that I have ever felt as a Millwall supporter. No hope with Holloway and I doff my hat to Davylion(?) for digging out the post yesterday -

      http://www.plymouth.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=108319#ixzz3TctjQEH2

      All so avoidable if the Board had done their homework, like some of us fans did, on who Holloway really was rather than the media perception of a competent football manager.

      @NICKOLA: Exactly so. It isn't the losing, it is losing without heart. It is that there is not a team on the pitch just a disorganised rabble. The whole character of the club is being destroyed and the supporters seem powerless to stop it.
      Holloway blagged his way in and is staying for his benefit, not for anyone else, whatever he says.
      Whoever selected him and drew up his contract should be out the door as soon as Holloway is gone. And go Holloway must. Soon.

    Dear oh dear. I can live with the heartache of relegation (if I must) but I can't accept a manger who is deluded. This bloke, despite the fans' obvious and increasing angst, still believes he's the man for the job. He doesn't acknowledge the harm that he and the board are doing to OUR club. What possible pleasure can we derive from THEIR insistence that we can still fight our way out of trouble this season with Holloway still at the helm? The blatant indifference to an overwhelming fans consensus is proof that the board are collectively incapable of running OUR club. The decisions made over the course of the past two years in particular beggar belief. Relegation will bring its own set of depressive variables, including the obvious financial ones.

    Its not the fact that we will be relegated its the way the board seem brainwashed into IH way of thinking. It's just plain weird. If they are scared of the pay off it then they are not looking at the big picture or are they really convinced by IH ramblings,if so then we are in trouble big time.

Have been a supporter of Berylson in the past and defended Ambler on occasion but they are as deluded as Holloway if they think that the way the club is being run right now is any part of any plan, as Holloway keeps harping on about.

I told everybody who wanted to listen, not many did, that Holloway was an over rated media whore charlatan before he was confirmed as manager. Three of the last four seasons is what I think you meant, two of those under Holloway and one under Jackett where we almost had enough points by Christmas to stay up. Enough said.

    Ollie please go. Put your hands up and admit defeat.
    I've said many times on here that I'm sick to the stomach of you trying to convince "millwall" that you get "US" and want a team that represents "US" You are not "US" and none of your players are "US" you have not assembled a team that represents "US". Your job as a manager is to get a match day squad to play football that is good enough to compete at this level. So far you have failed to do this. I'm fed up of all this "millwall" sh it, you've got lost in it ollie, it really isn't about that. I can only go back as far as Anderson but can only really remember from Graham admittedly we had no social media so it's unfair to suggest they wouldn't have spouted the same sh it you have and do but I'd lay my house on it they wouldn't have the nerve to do so, by "they" i mean all the managers we've had since then. All you had to do was get a team together and play football for each other collectively and hope we find someone with a bit of individuality to turn a game on its head. Every fan in the country regardless of the level his team plays will tell you the bare minimum they expect is heart, passion, soul and the ability to respect the badge on the shirt but listening to you its like that's all that matters, well it's not and it's insulting not only to US fans but to the players also. If I were one of YOUR players and that was all I ever heard from you I'd think your taking the pi ss out of me as that's what I'd expect from myself as a PAID professional but I'd at least have thought you'd sign me cause I'm a good footballer. Your taking the pi ss big time and unfortunately I'm one fan you'll never "win" back. I don't wish to contribute to your salary as I believe you do not deserve it. One thing will bring me round and that's if you can come out, hold your hands up, admit the fu ck up, admit relegation and start now the players that will be here next season to give them a chance to gel, obviously we have a couple out on loan and injured but the rest are here so play em.
    One way or the other just come out and be honest with yourself and "US" and please forget about this "millwall" stuff, you never will be "US" and you clearly do not understand "US"

The fact of getting behind the team NO MATTER WHAT !!!!

      Although I fully understand those who will attend regardless and suffer the pain ....I can not understand you ...you are the worst of all breeds....you attend, watch whats going on and still come out in support of Holloway....I bet you are really good at Fifa manager or whatever those games my boy plays are.

        @tonytowneronthewing: As much as I agree with the detrimental effect that his continued stay is having on this club, it is surely up to the individual if they carry on attending. I personally will continue to go, although I understand those who don't. One of the reasons, I feel, that holloway must go, is that I go out of duty; it's not pleasurable, and I know so many other fans who feel the same way. I will not have hope until this clown has gone.

      They say in times of war , my enemies enemy is my friend.....at the moment I really believe that any friend of holloway is no friend of Millwalls....all this b***** he is talking....if he was offered the pay off he would be gone in a flash....dont delude yourself he cares about Millwall

    When he had the clear out after the Bradford defeat I was naive enough to think that bringing in his own players would turn things round. He can no longer use the excuse that this is not his team because he is the one who persists with Forde in goal and Dunne at centre back. He has ruined the confidence of players like Upson, Webster and Gregory who are his signings. I am sure Gregory would score goals in a 4-4-2 formation with another striker up front with him and 2 wide players. II would like to think Holloway has gone before the start of next season in League 1 and a new Manager plays Paris-Cowan Hall and Fred as the wide players and another striker to support Gregory. I don't think Beevers will get a new contract so my centre back combination would be Nelson and Goodman if Goodman is offered a new contract.

    More classic nonsense from the Holloway dictionary of b*******.
    That "Superior Quality" has been evident against nearly every team we have played.
    The team you have assembled, is no different and you're now taking it down to a league and level where you may get away with it.
    Feel like now it's a five month pre-season, before we hear Rocking All Over The World, that's if they can find it.

    "We did it last year, I took Blackpool up, I have nineteen years experience".
    He keeps forgetting the mess he left behind at Plymouth, Leicester and
    QPR, and of course walking out on our friends the Nigel's.
    Lordy Lordy, Holloway is a real 'has been' who is somehow living off
    past reputations. The press statements sound like a desperate plea to
    win the fans over, but sound like deep down he knows he has failed
    to deliver on the over the top promises. Holloway will take us down,
    most have accepted this, the only hope for a lot of us is,
    another deluded 'taken in by it all' championship chairman will
    offer more money to Holloway to join his club, and he will be off, remember,
    he has done it before - not the most loyal of chaps is our Ian.
    Says he loves the club and chairman - pure b*****.
    Holloway wants out, but he is just a greedy F***** who won't walk without money.
    I nearly had some compassion for him today, but when he slid back
    into the dugout and remained until the end, I realised that he looked as pathetic
    as his press statements sound. The whole thing was an embarrassment.
    We started ok'ish, but the usual happened, then Norwich broke out into a stroll
    and we crumbled.
    The trouble is, there is plenty more of that to come this season under Holloway.

    Oh Ian, I was so happy when you was appointed. I am extremely loyal to managers, I think so often someone is sacked when they have no time to turn a team around, Hodgson at Liverpool, AVB at Tottenham, Moyes at Man U, all of those given more time I think would be in similar positions that the club is actually in now. Coming home from Watford last Boxing Day I knew the time was up for Lomas, I wasn't one of these people that hated him straight away because he was ex west ham, at the end of the day the bloke wanted to do a great job to go onto a better job himself which would only benefit us! But coming home from Norwich this Boxing Day, 1 year on from the Watford debacle and Lomas' sacking, after a humiliating 6-1 defeat I knew you couldn't turn this around and we needed another change, we need another Jackett, someone who's fairly quiet in the public eye but is a strict mean c**t behind the scenes. Someone who sorts the defence out and is happy with stealing a 1-0. Let's be honest, playing awful and winning 1-0 feels far better than this! Holloway, you've had your time, every day you stay here I lose more respect for you, walk now and you might retain some.

      @dobbers22: Holloway is not interested in your respect,just cold hard cash.He will/is spinning this situation to paint himself as an unappreciated victim.The fact is he has a water tight legal document, that will reward him richly for the abomination he has created and whoever is responsible for that should pay,figuratively and literally.

    Holloway says it's not an attractive proposition for potential players of decent quality so getting them to come here is difficult. Isn't it your job to convince them to come here? Your the manager or have I missed the Euroferry?

    We are a very loyal club . That one thing you can not argue with the chairman. I think we are down but I hope not..The lost of revenue next season will be colossus . Millions ! .. It is very hard to put into words how you feel . After watching your beloved team torn to shreds at home. I have put my money were my mouth speaks. Yet this year has been so very, very hard to take. I love Millwall fc full stop. B lucky.

    It used to be a fact that every team used to dread the fixture at the den, but in recent years this has been the complete opposite. You know the day when the fixtures come out and you look for when you have Blackpool/Bournemouth etc etc for those brilliant away days (especially when the suns shining) - other teams first look to see when they will be away to us and when they will be licking their lips.

    Fellow fans or so called fans take some responsibility booing players off the pitch pitch week after week, getting on there backs if they do something wrong, it's a wonder no one wants to take a shot run with the ball cross it, if I was and most of us was critisised constantly and moaned at at work you would fu-k right off tell the boss and critics to stick it we've had a s*** few seasons end of, this don't help the cause, the same as our budget and gates are to small, league one is our league we've all known it since we started finishing in the bottom half for the last 3 seasons, we need to build a decent squad that was IH and JB s plan from the off we all new that, life as a wall fan is hard we always come through in the face of diversity and it's true no one likes us including good players, I herd some fantastic support today the way of wall as short lived as it was it's in us confidence is the issue here not IH don't worry about the manager support our team encourage don't destroy them they will want out our youngsters I'm talking about.

    I am amazed that there still are a few people supporting Holloway on here, I really think they must members of his or Ambler's family. This man is single handedly ruining our club. Years ago it was "hooligan supporters" who were tarnishing the name of Millwall, they never did the damage that Holloway, Ambler and the other cowardly board members have done and I include this incompetent chairman. I dont carehow much money he might have put in he has not put it to good use simply because he know sweet fa about Millwall and English football. He has given too much power to the likes of Ambler, (the man who signed Hoyte)
    I might like to ask if perhaps that consortium who tried to buy Millwall last year and I think offered to put in a few mllion to buy player should have been accepted? Who knows.
    I have had another Saturday ruined indeed another weekend, I had to face jokey comments about Millwall from twerpy Not forest supporters in my local today, heaven knows what I will have to take next time Igo in there.
    It will take a few years to sort this mess out now, Holloway will never do it and who wants him too anyway? He HAS to go and go quickly so should Ambler, No more excuses please.

    Listen to his post match interview on Lions Player. 'Putting in a shift used to be enough for Millwall'. So it's our fault? If you were genuine you would accept that we voice our disapproval because of the dross you serve up and the 'team' that you have assembled. I am sure if you went we would all get behind whoever is in charge and the players. You're ego is astonishing, we are crumbling at the expense of your vanity. I am sorry, but anyone who still backs him as the man to turn things around in the short or long term is as deluded as him.

    This reminds me of the steve keen situation at blackburn with their fans wanting him out and him being in total denial of every poor performance but putting spin on it like Holloway , seems the board have excepted second best and we had one of the biggest player budgets yet supposedly but could only attract journey men, says a lot ?

      Unlike at Blackburn we the fans have been far more patient. The level of hate there with chanting and banners was quite extreme and it still took ages for him to go!

      Not saying start a mass protest at the Den as frankly I don't think it will make any difference to him going or more importantly change the results.

      One of the few positives if he sees out the season is that he will have had a whole season to implement some kind of plan to better us and will be shown to be totally inept.

      Will be one muggy chairman to hire Ollie after this fiasco. But hey it's football someone will, you just know it.

          Fans at every team up and down the country voice their anger at poor results, performances etc. yes it varies in how bad it gets and I do accept that it doesn't help any team when the crowd starts to boo and groan when things go wrong.

          However as I say this happens at all grounds, people don't just blindly clap and cheer if what they are seeing is awful. There's trying to be supportive (eg the team are really trying but just being outplayed by a better team, we can take that) but to just clap and cheer regardless makes you a mug.

          When Ollie does go and if he does have the nerve to blame us for Millwall's failings (possibly the only way he could be viewed any worse than he is now) there will be one simple answer to him.

          The results. Show the win/draw/loss column to any football fan anywhere and ask them if that record derserves backing or sacking.

          Ignore all his sound bites because I myself start to believe it as he says what we want to hear. Use some logic look at what happens after the 90 mins are up and see that most of the time we have lost.

          He can talk a good game but he cannot and will not IMO get Millwall to.

    Whoever is in charge the facts are we are not good enough for the Championship. There are many reasons for this and it seemed to start around 3 years ago. Along with many people I think relegation is a near certainty. This is the time we should start planning our long term future. Get rid of the mercenary players whose very contracts give them no future here. Bring in some of the youngsters and let them play for their future.
    As for the manager, changing now will make no difference. Wait until the end of the season and then plan a 3-5 year strategy for the club, including a decision on who will manage.

        Trouble is tony do you gamble and get the early saver discount in the hope Ollie will be gone by next season or wait and hope he goes at some point in league one.

        Unless he leaves when they offer the half season ticket I think it's probably better to buy then while their cheap.

        I think I will as I go to support the team not the manager. If he's still there then so be it. I think someone on here said they wouldn't go again until Dunne was gone! I know Ollie has more effect on the club but I wouldn't let him stop you supporting the team you love.

    Full of shot! The man really can't be well to be still coming out with this utter s***! The trouble is we now know he isn't going to walk, the chairman isn't going to sack him so he will be given next season to try get us bk up to the championship as his massive ego seems to think he's the right man for it! F****** laughable! The man is generally not very well someone close to him needs to point this out soon! We all know we're not going to drop a division and come straight up it will take a few seasons especially with this s*** squad.

    Holloway you give excuse after excuse! We're all f***** off with it!

    Play 442 keep tight at the back f*** the pretty football off and just get it up to the front 2 results won games not possession. I'm fed up with talking about it to be honest! Something seriously wrong at our club! Get mark war burton in now jb!!! And quick before someone else does!!

If he plays he's cards right theres a much better job out there in the offing. Fact is we aint an attractive job for a "half decent" manager, best we can hope for is a young coach who we can become half decent together.

    "I felt that if I went out there [to the touchline] then they would all vent their spleen on me and that wouldn't help the team, so I didn't shirk my responsibilities.
    In all my years following 'wall, I've never seen a manager bottle it like Holloway did yesterday. A total f****** embarrassment to the club.
    You also know it's bad when our fans start turning on each other (as they did in block 10 CBL yesterday).
    When we lose to the trainspotters next month, it's going to kick off BIG TIME.

      @Syd the Lion: I agree,Charlton never win at the Den (last time was 95/96 in the snow,season we went from top to relegation) a few weeks ago they were slipping down the table and I fancied them to get drawn into a relegation battle. They'll be right up for thier game at the Den, a defeat to them with all thier fans gloating will be too much to take and I reckon it'll seriously kick off.

        Yes the fans have suffered so much these last few seasons. But losing to Charlton! At home is frankly unacceptable. I can see it being a bad loss as well.

        No doubt JB will say he's backing Ollie still after the crowd go nuts at facing the embarrassment that it is to lose to Charlton.

    Just look at the money he has spent!

    If Jackett or even dare I say it Lomas had access to these funds, I am sure we would not be adrift without hope at the bottom of the league.

    His cowering in the dug out and Ambler's absence tell you all you need to know.

    If he stays and somehow gets us past Wigan, Sheff Utd MK Dons etc. to get us back up, what are we supposed to do, Throw flowers at his feet?

    It's ridiculous JB and you know it, just have a cachet with him and say 'will you make a deal to go, if not you can assist in the club shop and we will get someone else to run the football'.

    Had enough of this farcical situation and read enough from other fans to know that something has to give and surely and hopefully sooner rather than later. God knows how many fans not renewing their ST's until Holloway is gone is costing the club and who can blame them.

    Wall mate texted me yesterday that a fan posted up a picture on facebook of Holloway cowering in the corner of the dug out. Even I was gobsmacked to think that for all his mouth and ego the size of London that he couldn't front it out, the man is all spin but no backbone!

    Time to put Holloway on gardening leave, he simply has no clue, and this constant praising of the opposition is annoying. Let bomber and Fitzgerald take the reigns till the end of the season as they cant do any worse. Also be interesting to see how the fa handle the villa pitch invasion and handle our events at Rotherham last week.

    I don't know if anyone from the club reads this but at the moment I think the PR at the club is shocking.
    I'm not convinced that anyone at the club is stepping forward to take the blame and as a result the fans are simply left in the dark as to what is going on behind the scenes and why it is happening.
    JB says he supports Olly...but why? I can understand he has been unlucky with injuries and that trying to attract players to Millwall is like trying to sell an holiday to Afghanistan but what is it that Olly has that can turn our fortunes round. Is it that we can't afford to sack him, then say it. Are they giving him until the end of the season and then making a decision, then say so, obviously I'm not expecting the club to say if we go down he goes but say we will evaluate at the end of the season. For christ's sake it's season ticket time and while diehards (me included will buy one) how are we going to attract new money at the moment.
    As I said Olly has been unlucky but then continues to say "It's down to me" "We are in it together" blah blah blah. They are just soundbites and we've had enough. I've got my UEFA B I know a bit about football and I know if things aren't working you try to change it. I had a Kent league reserve team that fell apart and after losing two all season and wanting 4 pts from 8 games decided to lose all 8. I couldn't change it no matter what I did. At the end of the season I had a mass clear out and we became a winning side again and we played the 4-2-3-1 successfully. This side is down and barring a miracle ala last season we are down. What I want from Olly is answers, I don't expect him to s*** players off but give us an explanation of why he continues to use the 4-2-3-1. Give us an idea of his vision of the future. Tell me what he plans to do if/when we go down. He tells us he is the man but why should we believe him, give us proof. I do think he is putting in a structure that will stand the club in good stead and that by sacking him it could put us back. The club expect us to invest in Olly but give us something to work with. If anything maybe staying up last season hurt Olly more than we thought. If we had gone down last season no one would have blamed him but this season he has had chances to turn it around.
    Millwall is and has always been a close knit club and it's supporters are loyal and passionate to the end but that loyalty and passion is really being tested at the moment. Most fans accept relegation but for crying out loud you're killing us so lets have a bit of honesty and put your cards on the table and tell us what we've got to look forward to because at the moment we need a pick me up.

    Still back the team but the manager is the one that picks it, the one who communicates the tactics for the team to implement, the one who does the homework before each match and sets the team up accordingly, Jackett was for the most part was excellent on that because he was an old school technician not a snake oil salesman.

    All this talk of Holloway's experience is probably what is detrimental to us, likes buying in old players he has worked with previously, refuses to change - to play two strikers up front so we cannot ever score or it is a rarity to get one goal, then take someone like Sean Dyche or Eddie Howe, young still learning and easily adaptable to the change of modern football building small quality teams in their own image, full of pace and for the most part 442 because it works for them.

    He has got to go, we wont win games in League One and it blows me away that the Board are just happy to sit by and accept relegation. All this talk of not out until mathematical impossibility I get but give us a dam fighting chance then by getting rid of the person at the club who is hurting it and disgruntling fans. The atmosphere is sour, which is the last thing you want for a relegating fight and will be so until Holloway is gone, he is using us as his personal cash cow and playing on the over generosity of JB and the faith of AA in him.

    Please please get sack the manager or walk away Olly I cannot believe you are so intent on destroying the club that your mate Kenny Jackett worked hard in building and turning around. You knew you didn't have the ability to keep Palace in the Prem so you stepped away and even offered a recommendation in Pulis, please do so again...

    The Norwich report on Vital Football says
    "Millwall were booed off at the end and Holloway is surely on the brink after this latest defeat that sees his side 8 points from safety with just 10 games to play. Millwall were awful and it could've been worse for the home side with Dorrans also hitting the post and Jerome having another good chance to score. If The Lions fans are subjected to that every week then I totally understand the booing, they deserve better."
    Obvious to all isn't it. Why is Holloway still here?

    Headline in the Mirror Online today

    Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho couldn't do a better job than Ian Holloway is at Millwall, says Alan Dunne

    The article goes on to say how Holloway will get us out of this mess and how Jose couldn't do a better job (true with this load of crap)

    Apparently we play at Valley Parade and not the Den, typical shoddy journo

      @North London Lion:

      He's won two Champions Leagues and two Premier Leagues but Jose Mourinho would struggle if he was tasked with managing Millwall.

      That's the view of Lions defender Alan Dunne who believes the Special One wouldn't be able to do a better job at Valley Parade than the one Ian Holloway is currently doing.

      Millwall are in the Championship relegation zone and are heavily odds-on to drop into the third tier of English football at the end of the season.

      “Holloway is a fantastic manager and I honestly believe that if Mourinho came in, it would not make the slightest bit of difference," said Dunne.

        Once again I find myself disagreeing with you Dunney (your previous gem being we're almost a good team).

        Not only would Mourinho have done a better job than Holloway you would struggle to find any manager that couldn't have managed to do better.

        What will he come out with next. We score lots of goals? We hardly ever concede?

    That link to the Plymouth fan's piece about Holloway from 2008 makes for very interesting reading!
    When you put it all into context since IH's first managerial job at QPR it seems to be going on a sort of cycle and, unfortunately, we seem to be on the downward bit of it - his Leicester tenure is scarily similar to how things are going here.
    What's frustrating is I can see us fans getting the blame for all this as usual. If/when he does depart, it will be all "the fans drove him out", "made it an impossible job", "affected the players' confidence" etc etc.
    The reality is, Millwall fans are used to experiencing the bad times, we'd accept relegation, not lightly of course, but if we felt that the most was being done to try and avoid it or at least keep some dignity in going down (such as playing with 2 strikers and not constantly changing tactics/personnel) then I think we'd all accept that we're just not good enough but back the club and manager to work at getting us back up asap. Look at the positive response from the fans at the Reading game, and yet it all just reverted to type soon after.
    I don't lay all of the blame at the manager's door, but don't think he's doing himself any favours.

    It feels to me that the master plan to avoid relegation is: "Well, we did it last year so we'll do again this season..." and that apparently fans criticising now have short memories about last season's great escape. Does this mean we're going to wait until we actually hit the bottom with 8 games to go and then 'watch us go'!?

    When quality players like Hooiveld and Fabrini are appearing to get dragged down to the same poor level as the rest then you have to suspect there is something badly wrong somewhere, I just can't fathom where...
    A friend of mine made an interesting comparison. He said IH seems to be very similar to Kevin Keegan. Lots of passion, big speeches and a knack of using that to get success initially, but it can't last and when it breaks down it does so in spectacular fashion.
    As far as I know, only twice in our history has Millwall been relegated and stuck with the manager. That was 50 years ago - Billy Gray - and 40 years ago - Gordon Jago. Both times we bounced straight back. I think with the youngsters we have coming through we have every chance of making our next exile shorter - if we do indeed go down, which seems likely.
    Whether or not the board really do brazen it out and stick with IH will be very interesting, because surely a manager who doesn't leave the dugout because of the fans' anger is surely in an untenable position?
    If he did stay and we ended up bouncing straight back that really would be a comeback to better Lazarus and I'm sure we'd all happily eat humble pie but I think it's very unlikely.

    I'm only 15 so some may argue I've not experienced the "true millwall" but the problem is not holloway it's the youth. We need a top scout who can attract Young kids to our club. Why can't we get an assombalonga or a tomlin. When we do get good kids we loan them out and they lose passion and desire for a club which is what we lack. If we have any chance of survival we need to recall Fred. We also need to break the bank for once. 250,000 can't buy class. Hopefully we can rebuild in league 1.

      @Daniel Watts: Nothing wrong in what you say Dan, we had a long history of finding rough diamonds and turning them into great players, our youth system stagnated since the current chairman decided he didn't believe in it and effectively shut it down all throughout KJ's reign. I am a big fan of JB but this was his biggest mistake and we are still paying for it. Having said that, it is becoming more and more difficult to retain promising youngsters, so we have to dangle the carrot of regular first team footie to keep them motivated to stay. KJ would never have supported that.

    look at the outstanding job being done by freedman at forest (taking over from another over confident one is pearce) freedman before that did a wonderful job at Palace before YOU KNOW WHO f***** them up

    the difference is so clear it is unreal

    we beat forest before freedman came - with virtually the same squad look at them now and with their top scorer out injured - it is not the players' fault - it is totally IH to blame - he cannot be allowed to stay for nexrt season - this season is over any way

    'all of a sudden we gave away a penalty' what the f*** does that mean ?? all of a sudden - no. not all of a sudden (as if it appeared out of the ground) actually one of our players gave it away owing to awful play - that is what he should be saying - and i have no idea how to make that play better - is what he should also say

    I am getting as bit sick of the negative comments about the fans reaction to the performances we are seeing. We have been more than patient for the last few years and Ollie has had a lot of good will and plenty if time to allow him time to start turning things around. Fact is that performances and results are getting worse and he is culpable along with the players. I supported ollie many times this and last season, but I am out of patience with him now. The chairman and board have to accept that they made the wrong appointment and put in place a plan to get Millwall back to winning ways, ie. develop youth and get rid of the 30+ journeymen who are not up to scratch.

    Odds are now 1/4 that Holloway will leave. Having just watched his post match interview he looks broken. I can't remember a manager hiding in the dugout before. One more defeat like yesterday (which is inevitable) and it will be the end.
    Have to say JB has been massively loyal to IH and loyalty is a good thing but not when it damages the club. We are down now - no way are we going to make up an 8 point gap. So bit the bullet JB and draw the curtain on the Holloway circus.

    This post is directed at cmj23 for his ealier post digging out millwall supporters and jordie lion for his support of that post,WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE,digging me out cmj23 i am one of those fans you described,in your post.
    1 Yes i was one of the MUG'S who was taken in by the IH spiel ,and now realise how wrong i was.but unlike you and JordieLion ,i am not blind to where he is leading us and that is DOWN THE PAN.
    2 It is well documented on NAD of his many failing's,but i will comment on just two of them,Williams and Webster ,they were both bought in by IH.( two players i thought highly of by the way)
    Webster was playing well for Yoeville that is why IH bought him in,yet from day one he was ousted from the team by a makeshift CB (Dunne) because IH made the poor decision to make Dunne captain and had to play him some where, as Dunne did not wnat to play at RB (IH own admission.When Webster gets his chance his confidece was shot to pieces and he had to be loaned out,What went wrong there,i will tell you what went wrong IH went wrong that's what.
    As for Williams,here is a man who when he first played for us we could see why we bought him had a bit of class could play in another position if need be,scored his share of goals fo MK dons,i think i can count on one hands the amount of shots at goal he has had ,let alone any goals he has scored(,and the same can be said for webster he scored his fair share foe yeovill .)
    Against Norwich Williams look a little boy lost( as did IH hiding in the dugout),Williams did not know who to mark could not make a pass.That is just two players that IH has ruined ,and you cannot say he inherited them becuase IH bought.them.
    Now we we look at the team set by this idiot IH,as he said,for 38 mins we competed,but look a bit closer,upfront Fuller was playing more to the right and taylor to the left ,who was playing down the middle NO ONE thats who so their two CBs had an easy time for that 38 mins.
    Every team i have seen at the den have played a front man and support for that front man down the middle so thry can be direct and cause the utmost damage,what do IH do when we play ,Gregory or Obrien,he plays them wide not down the middle,and these two when played to gether seem to have an understanding with each other,but your great manager cannot see that,no as usual a player has an half decent game and he gets dropped by the great IH,oh yes and IH does not forget to praise said player to the hilt before dropping him.
    What has annoyed me with both you two(cmj23 and JordieLion) is that i have been coming to millwal since i was 6 years old,1952 to be exact and i am a season ticket holder,so for cmj23 to get personal and start slagging off other millwall fans is wrong and for JordieLion to support him in that is wrong.
    Now before i end my rant,i will say to both of you people,if you want to s*** some one off have the decency to direct to them pesonally and dont generalise,also if you get it wrong then have the balls to appolgise like i did when i had a pop at lion ie,
    So IMO IH IS RUBBISH and you two cmj23 and JordieLion are wrong.

        @rowanonthewing7: Great posts you two, I have not been supporting the lions as long as you only 50 plus odd years since my dad took me there and used to smuggle me in under the turnstiles! However I have done a bit of scouting for the club under Jago and he taught me a lot. Afraid this current manager is not even up to his class.
        Does anyone think that Reg Burr or the late Mr Burnidge would ever have tolerated Holloway for so long? In fact they would never have appointed him. It's a tragedy and a waste of years of hard work that the current leadership is doing to our great club.

    I've been unable to get to many matches this season due to circumstances but listening to Ollie on lions live Friday I thought yep lets get to the Den and support the wall as I have for 40 years or more. The line is relegation fight, I didnt see any, Waltzing past Williams and Bailey dangling a foot for the first and Dunney deciding to dive in when the player is going away from the goal for the second, dontget me started on the other goals, head in hands!
    When Cameron Jerome tears you a new one you know something aint right. Norwich closed us down, tackled hard and broke quickly, we just back off and backed off, have a shot mate we wont get in the way.

Dunne for the second.. what kind of idiot barges a forward in the box who is going nowhere?! Utter shambles. No fight in this team whatsoever. I feel sorry for Hoover - we've ruined him already. He looked decent when he joined.. looks like a Millwall player now. I'm ashamed of this team. Couldnt score in a brothel - and not a bollock between them. Gutless. We look like a pub team.. a really shtty one. This side wont survive in League 1 next season either. Not a chance.

    I wonder in how many other areas of his business empire JB employs people who are clearly not up to the job. I fear that in spite of his warm words, Berylson doesn`t want a team in the Championship & losing millions a year. He wants a team in a lower division, with lower wage bills & only slightly smaller crowds. I hope the people who think we can bounce back in one season are right. But I don`t see it happening

    This is a market research kind of question and we'd all be foolish for thinking no one with influence actually reads this. So reflect and be objective. You will see the answers, but I will display answers the 1st January 2016 because by then is a good time to reflect on our new season in 3rd tier. Remember, by "Liking" or "Disliking" YOU ARE VOTING. We should see more of this on this website.

    1) "Like" if we sack IH now so we enter an uncertain 9-month management period, go down under other management, even if it means not knowing what is going to happen come kick off 2015/16;

    2) Dislike" if we keep IH to enter a certain 9-month management period, go down and if we are not in the top 4 by 31st December 2015 he is sacked.

    Just a few weeks ago the "experts" on here and other well known sites were waxing lyrical about hooveld and fabrini. Sign em up, don't matter about the cost, the usual drivel tbh.

    The results and performances show that they would waste another bundle of dough. And before we blame holloway, these players are paid a decent wedge to perform but at basically not up to it.
    Go back to football manager and spend imaginary money on imaginary teams in your darkened rooms whilst having a hand shandy before your mum comes in with your weetabix.

      @chubby:
      Well in response, although I wasn't one who said "sign 'em up",
      they were playing reasonably well, then wham, the performances drop.
      This has been a consistent happening under Holloway, leading to
      people questioning his man management and what he says to
      players in training, not to mention the man of many formations.
      I don't think any loan player want's to play s***, after all
      they are always looking to get contracts, if not at this club, elsewhere.
      As well as stupidity with Holloway, there does seem to be a bitchy don't
      give a f*** about him. Just look at the way he slung young Sid into the
      s*** (as captain as well, to cap it all) Just to prove a point.
      There is no getting away from it, he has been crap at this gig
      along with a few of his loans/ signings (and some of Lomas signings as well).
      Will it end good, my opinion (not that it matters to anyone else), more than likely not.
      He has created to much of a Toxic stink around the club for it to ever work.

      @chubby:

      fab and hoo would be solid pros at championship level under any other manager

      as many other posters have said IH has ruined plenty of others here as well

      What a muggy comment chubby.

      They were decent loan signings and have played well for us. Hoov looking composed in defence and fab able to keep the ball and find a pass, wins us numerous free kicks. Note he scored and won a penalty in our previous two home games.

      Are you suggesting the performances and results of late are there fault? Get real, they can't work miracles, they're just two men. Without them however we are a worse team so would play even worse and concede even more.

      You'll be pleased to know that the cost of getting either is far above anything JB would ever dream of spending. Not that you appreciate them but they'll be gone in 10 games.

      I'm sure your mate Ian will turn things around with the crap that's left.

        @MFC Lion: so the ball comes to the cb he can't control it, gives it to the oppo and they score. Of course its the managers fault. Not muggy at all just quite observational and a realist

          @chubby: that's one mistake and your using that to base your opinion on him being crap and to blame for our performances. Why are you ignoring all of the good things he's done. Same with fab.

          How can you possibly consider them to be bad and to blame but not come to the same conclusion for Holloway?

          Do you think Ollies a good manager? If yes I will remember to disregard all your future comments.

    @PaulMcK: Boiling heads is not something I'd like to see. Mocking bald men is a little immature. But using the C-word has to be be the ultimate measure of how intelligent this comment was.

    Im not one for sacking a manager but hes numbers are sh1t.....yes he kept us up....and if he manages to do it again (WE CAN ALL HOPE)....but if he does we will just be in the same position again next year and then next year or until his contract runs out.........

    We should change now.... for me give it to Harris.... he loves our club.... yes we may still go down but at least we will go down with the 12th man giving it his all.

    This guy is a clown, sorry but he has to go..... find a loop whole in his contract, plead with him to take a reduce pay out .... do anything to get him out...the only other thing is go out and get hammered 10 - 0 then the board will have to react.....Should have done it this weekend as we were never going to beat the hairy canary's so should have gone out and lost 10 - 0 and then it would have all been sorted.... Give him his due Forde did try and make it 10 - 0..... he looked Sh1t.... new keeper for next week please

    Mr Holloway,
    I have supported Millwall for over forty years, in every division of the football league. This is without doubt the poorest squad I have witnessed.

    Week in, week out I sit and watch a team that look like rabbits caught in the headlights. They have no confidence, no belief, no faith. There are no more excuses you can make. This is YOUR squad, they play YOUR tactics, they TRAIN how YOU tell them. From losing at home to "mighty" Rotherham in August they have not advanced one iota.

    Personally I think you could have managed 8,000 professional games but I have seen nothing this season to indicate you know what you are doing or can get us promoted once we inevitably go down.

    And if you think the crowd turned against you on Saturday, wait until we play Charlton. Lose that game, and you'll be left in no doubt what the majority of us feel.

        @chubby:
        Yes I remember all those crap years. I've done it before and will do it again.
        No one said I deserve a medal. But I wouldn't mind being entertained occasionally

          @diesel: reading pathetic unrealistic comments on here is quite entertaining, sometimes a bit of perspective is needed. I did forget spackman as well. I also remember the 4th division years as well. It's cyclic supporting us

    I really cant take this manager seriously - he spouts on about the difference in class against Norwich, so how about Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield who both beat us convincingly at the Den? If they are equally in a different class as the scorelines would suggest then clearly we are a League 1 outfit! The board need to take a good look at themselves and explain why they let so many players start the season with only 12 months left on their contracts, this has had an effect on morale!
