Millwall Away

I thought Johnson was next worst after Samuel.

God knows what Travis, Dack and Lenihan must think watching this shower of shite.

 

Has Lenihan ever completed a pass that isn’t 5 yards sideways?

We look so lost going forwards, painful to watch. You can see Downing and Tosin trying to look for people but just zero options.

Hope for a miraculous second half.

Absolutely fuming with this inevitable show of total disinterest and inability.

For all of the talk of progress, what does Mowbrays Rovers actually do?

Long ball from the start against Millwall, did Mowbray consult Appleton before coming up with a game plan today. Team is all wrong. Then as the half wore on plenty of slow and sideways passes with zero threat. Thats what apparently we "want" to do.

Samuel with the sort of non performance you get out of him 99% of the time. Graham cant move. Get shut of both after the Luton game.

Adarabioyo cant be arsed. Bennett constantly out of position. Dont get the hype around Rankin Costello, constantly looks terrified.

Walton woeful with the ball at his feet. Johnson clumsy. Travis petulant and sloppy. Downing ineffective. Armstrong fairly half arsed.

It's the way he has them playing makes it look worse it's effing painful hopefully they'll do the usual and step it up 2nd half.

Aye, cause so far we've fallen from...

League One to midtable Championship?

Ay, cause I would have got that squad out of league 1

Ay, cause he has had 7 terrible transfer windows,spending stupid money on league 2 players 

Ay, cause his football is slow, predictable and so yesterday 

Ay, cause his square pegs in round holes continue to produce dross 

Ay, cause he is without inspiration or motivation 

BUT ....if you’re feeling the love ...you’re feeling the love .

I'm not sure whether anyone has covered this in any other threads, but Downing as a centre midfielder just isn't working. Thought he was effective from the wing and left back in the first half of the season. His left foot was a real outlet down the left side. 

However it's no coincidence that his influence and form has dropped off since he's been moved to centre midfield. He's not dynamic enough for it to work and we seem to be squeezing him to the detriment to the team. If Mowbray plans to utilise him like this, I'd be happy for him not to get another contract. I thought that was unthinkable after the first half of the season.

‪Davenport for JRC, Gallagher for Samuel and Holtby For Johnson at half time, harsh on Johnson maybe but need some craft ‬

I'd keep JRC on, but play him in a more natural position for him - further forward.

Season's been over for a while, the youngsters should be playing these games.

Why start with Graham and Samuel ahead of Breo and Gally, two players signed to spearhead our strikeforce. This is ridiculuous Mowbray.

Another abysmal Mowbray half.

Side wrong tactics wrong.

No adjustment when we went behind.

Final balls terrible but players not being encouraged to move to pull Millwall out of position.

So many ridiculously unnecessary pass backs as well from Johnson in particular.

I’m not going to go for bat for him just noticed less shittery than others but that’s because he hasn’t been involved much to make mistakes

Samuel...... dear God.

That one paragraph hits the nail on the head. No pace, no purpose just possession. It just difficult to describe it has a style of play.

What's with the insistence on these ridiculous nicknames?

Also, 'Breo' is suspended.

2 outcomes to this game :-

 

1. Mowbray sorts this complete shit out at HT and we win this must win game.

2. Mowbray doesn't, we lose with a wimper and he walks 10pm.

Outcome 2 does not compute.

To be fair I’d start Graham and Samuel over Brereton and Gallagher. Brereton for me is about as good as Sam hart

He's back, on the bench.

Not that he'll make the slightest difference to the game

Apart from that we're doing alright though?

Post-lockdown Brereton has shown more fight than the lot out there first half, tbh.

Watching Rovers is like a Beckett play. Hopeless and pointless. Still, I will have to endure the 2nd half with Estragon, Pozzo and Godot...unless, of course, Mowbray decides to bring them on. Hell, he has paid millions for worse!

Maybe not.

Tony has probably told him to model himself on Corry.

Davenport on for Johnson, Holtby on for Downing, Gallagher on for Samuel and Brereton on for Graham.

Dreadful mid-table fare. Their 5 in midfield outflanking our 3, not loving how much space Romeo is getting...

Samuel hopeless in every possession, Graham no apparent threat and a midfield with no ideas

Has anyone got a clip of the Millwall weak shot from the edge of the box before their goal

I didn’t get enough chance to see that
