I'm watching the game. I'm not quite sure what people want out of Bell. As for Nuttall - he's just a donkey, unfortunately. Shocking first touch.

Can’t believe you can’t give Nuttall credit for today’s performance. He’s looked more like an attacker today that Brereton has in all his minutes combined.

Nobody has been great but Bell is poor and Mowbray’s tactics and choices are doing him no favours.

Dack looks a little half-hearted today and that is mirrored in the team. But with Mulgrew and Graham not playing he won’t feel like he’s playing with his mates.

We’re trying to contain fecking Millwall. Shall we not try impose out own style (😂😂😂) on them and match them instead?! Mowbray’s Middlesbrough team came to Ewood and passed us off the park under Kean. This Rovers team couldn’t be further from that team.

Thank God for half time where I can watch something interesting - like the kettle boil.

Is this going to be TM’s Spurs match where we don’t even register a shot? What the feck are we playing at as an attacking side? It’s embarrassing.

Dack had a shot from 30 yards although it only travelled about 10!

The thing is TM will be back slapping them on a job well done at HT. Surely we're capable of better than this as an attacking force?

Tbf a hell of a lot of games start a bit cagey and scrappy like that and that's the nature of the game. People aren't half being dramatic, it wasn't THAT bad and we're not behind with that patched up defence. 

Some obvious weak points which hopefully will be addressed at HT

You don't have a stream of that kettle by any chance do you mate?

Bell is playing down the left hand side by himself.

Reed continues to drift inside. It works with Nyambe because he's a better player, but that's asking too much of Bell.

Nuttall has just been shit, I'm sorry to say. Winning the odd flick on to nowhere doesn't push my buttons I'm afraid.

Nuttall has led the line quite well considering there hasn't been anyone within 30 yards of him.  I think Bell is improving defensively but going forward and passing is dire.

At least we are setting new records in boringness for the championship 😁

That was minging.

However, could TM be realising that in our games nothing happens for the first hour so he can bring Armstrong, Graham and Rothwell on then and.........

We concede 😂

Was the ball out of play longer than it was in? Seems a possibility.

It was certainly in the air more that it was on the ground. If there's any chiropractors outside the ground after today's game then they will make a fortune.

What more can he do when we launch the ball up to him and no one else is within 20 yards off him?

That is the worst half of football I have seen in a long while.

Bell error after error.

Pitch as smooth as my unshaved face.

Dack looking a bit heavy and half a yard short of what he normally has.

Nuttall bright to start with then sucked into mediocrity.

Travis doing Ok, Rodwell also.

Iffy moments from Lenihan and Raya but thankfully Millwall no great shakes.

And that is the key point. Millwall are no great shakes and a bit more of an attacking threat could win this.

I'd be tempted to get Nyambe on push Bennett forward.

It’s a proper scrap, and we’ve earned the right to have a bit more of a go now.

Have to fight for a foothold against a side like this.

The sky is falling in though obviously, I agree

Sky just said we’ve had a shot. That can’t have classed as an effort, surely?!

Did someone not cut inside from the left and absolutely pea-roll one at the keeper.
