IAN HOLLOWAY MAKES SEVEN CHANGES AFTER 6-1 DRUBBING AT NORWICHLeague leaders come to town
I hooked up with Peter who publishes the very good Bournemouth Blog Cherry Chimes and answered a few of his questions. If you fancy a look click on link below>>http://afcbchimes.blogspot.co.uk/p/enemy-lines
That's the third defeat on the spin and yet more changes. Losing at home to Bolton 1-0 and the 6-1 thrashing at Norwich and now this defeat at the hands of Bournemouth have left us tottering on the edge of the League 1 abyss. I did here a muted chant of 'Holloway out' coming from the Dockers stand and I am sure I heard a chant aimed at Scott Malone 'your not fit to wear the shirt'. If my hearing was correct this could be start of terrace unrest and a more vocal campaign may follow. On the game itself, we were yet again poor in all departments and although we tried to give it ago we were just not good enough as per usual. We need some new blood in the team and I don't just mean support for Lee Gregory, we need at least four new signings in the January window and there is hope that something will happen on that front but who's available and if there was anybody available would they want to join a sinking ship. Time will tell.
WE MAY HAVE BEEN POOR BUT THAT WAS NEVER A PENALTY
Millwall concede the first goal after a penalty was given to Bournemouth after Lee Martin fouled Bournemouth's Charlie Daniels outside the box. "Yes" that is correct, "outside the box" I was ideally placed to spot that the foul was outside the box but apparently the referee wasn't.
David Forde dives the right way but couldn't keep out 'the penalty that never was"
TEENAGER SID NELSON STARTS AND IS VOTED MILLWALL'S MAN OF THE MATCH
Making his full league debut fellow Wall Sid Nelson shows the so called senior pro's how to play a football match, He played all out from start to finish and could have scored with a little more luck. Hopefully he does not get contaminated by "the couldn't care attitude around him" and lets hope he doesn't get his brain scrambled trying to work out Holloway's tactics. Perhaps we need to play a few more young un's in our next game especially after Scott Malone has trouble not falling over his own feet.
ps....Shaun Williams gets a red card. He must channel the frustration and hot headedness and show more passion with the ball then he will be playing the Millwall way.
