Blackpool 1 Millwall 0, Championship, 10/1/15, att: 9,994


Rock Bottom Blackpool were to good for us and this defeat seems to be the tipping point as many supporters are calling for the Clown (not my term) to go and go now. I am not sure that's a good idea at the moment as we are still in the January window and there's still some shopping to do.

Dear oh dear, if we can't beat bottom side Blackpool who can we beat?  We had chances, we had a penalty shout but in this "must win game" we didn't have the whereabouts yet again to grind out a result. This is the worse time that I can remember following the Wall, it's embarrassing,. Ricardo Fuller is wayward with his finishing and he gets it large from the travelling support. He gives some abuse back at them and he is quickly substituted. Ian Holloway brings on Stefan Maierhofer who is playing his first game after signing for a second time and he carried on where Fuller left off and although the Hof had chances his finishing was no better than Fuller's. I do not believe that Fuller was worthy of the abuse that was slung at him. He has been a constant hard worker and has scored goals and I am not convinced he is a "wage thief" as others within the team have been described .

Ian Holloway said the side lacked composure. I say "yes they lack composure and just about everything else."
He also said on the Millwall FC website, I cannot fault the effort and desire of the boys because everyone of them gave it absolutely everything but unfortunately Blackpool got their goal and we couldn't find a way back. 
We must be bad, Blackpool got their goal and although we gave absolutely everything we couldn't find a way back. 'struth, Blackpool must have played like Real Madrid, a tough nut to crack.

Last ten league games: DLDDLWLLLL 30 points up for grabs and we get just six. Our home record within these ten goals is dismal. W e have played five lost four and drawn one, that's one point from 15. That's not the Millwall I have followed all these years, that's Dismal FC. HELP

I know one thing. We should not get excited regarding beating Bradford this coming Wednesday because if  we do happen to beat them in this FA Cup replay our current team will get smashed to bits by Chelsea in the next round. The Kings Road may go the same way.
