So, can Ollie make Millwall the Barcelona of Bermondsey?!

9th January 2014
As a lifelong Millwall fan, this season so far has been pretty miserable with virtually no high points, but that could be about to change with the appointment of St Ollie as our managerial saviour.

The previous incumbent, Steve Lomas was always going to have a tough time, playing for West Ham was one thing, but asking him to take over from the excellent Kenny Jackett with just experience at St Johnstone to his name created an uphill task for the combative midfielder. Bizarre tactics, strange substitutions and wholesale team changes were his undoing, but no matter, because now Ollie is here to lead us to the promised land (or hopefully Championship survival anyway!)

Ian Holloway is a character and we like characters down at The Den. His interviews and cheerful personality will be a breath of fresh air in Bermondsey, but make no mistake avoiding relegation will be no easy task.

Last season, Millwall’s defence was their strong point, this year it is laughable; 49 goals conceded in the league and a crushing 1-4 defeat at League 2 Southend preventing a repeat of last season’s cup run, give cause for concern.

However, Ollie’s philosophy is for everyone at the club to wear a smile, both on and off the pitch, something that has been sadly lacking so far this season.

Holloway and Millwall ........it has the potential to be a great partnership, could he possibly repeat his successes with Blackpool and Palace? At least we’ll get some great one liners!
