The Stoke City Fan Love In For Millwall & Gary Rowett

They don’t like us or their previous manager! Love it!

Here’s a few examples of their prose, during our game against the mighty Potters!

Enjoy!

1st half.

“Millwall look set up to try and play out a 0-0. Who's their manager again?”

“Altogether now ‘Gary Rowett your football is shit’”

”Millwall look like a Gary Rowett team and that’s not a compliment. That said, you can see them still beating us.”

“What a bollocks goal that is. They have been nowhere near this game.”

“soooo against the run of play.”

“Just fuck off rowett, ref and everything else associated with fucking millwall!”

“Good goal and well deserved. No way did we deserve to be behind.”

“Great response from the players. We're far better than these twats lets go on and show it......”

“Rowett is utter garbage and nowhere near ONeill.”

“If you're going to be a shit ref, you're supposed to favour either the home team or the bigger club. Neither of which are fucking Millwall.”

“I could understand a bit more if it was Watford, Brentford or Bournemouth and the perception of how they play, but Millwall? Gary Rowett's Millwall? Really?”

2nd half.

“They've brought on Kieftenbeld lads, a defensive midfielder...”

“This Bennett is a right drama queen.”

“Rowett’s sub changed the balance of this game shame he couldn’t do it here.”

“Get Clucas on, he can score a goal from nothing. Going to take a moment of quality or an error to break their 10 man defence down.....”

“It's starting to feel like this has smash and grab written all over it.....”

“Catastrophic defending🤦🏻‍♂️

“We've gifted them two goals. It's unreal.”

“Millwalls half time sub changed the game and MoN as failed to react to it.”

“How are we losing to this trash?! A side that came for a 0-0!”

“They have been the better side since the substitution....because we have been so poor.”

“I hate to say it about the nasty bastards that are Milwall - but they have come out 2nd half and showed they are up for it. We have criminally been unprofessional, sloppy, and thrown this away. We are a shambles at times.”

“Classic Stoke. Concede 2 to a side that came for 0-0.”

“Imagine being out coached by Gary Bastard Rowett🙄

“His sub stifled us, then Batth fucked up. We were terrible second half but Millwall were gifted their victory......”

“Losing to a Rowett team is a new low even for us.”

“They were so shite until they scored. I'm fuming at the idea they might get in the playoffs.”

“Rubbish, Rowett is a rancid chancer of a manager and what undid us was a diabolical bout of defending by Baath. Take that out and it’s 1-1 or 2-1 us. They got lucky on the day and once he shut up shop at half time it was going to be an utterly shit game whatever, just like Rowett subjected us to time after time.”

And in reply to that reply, a supporter said this - which was the most balanced view of the lot:

“They didn't shut up shop, they actually moved the ball quicker than us and were a yard sharper. They defended resolutely when they needed to and we had no idea how to break them down. We bossed the first, they the second, horror mistake, fine margins..”

OK, it’s fun to read comments like these (especially when we win the game), but many of them do seem to mirror some of our own thoughts about Rowett and his defensive type of play. It seems that it’s not only been at Millwall that his style of football has been called out, which makes it all the more worrying that as Stoke manager he was given a large pot of transfer money to sign players, many of which, as it turned out during the following season, didn’t seem to add much more to the team as a whole. Rowett left the club with players they couldn’t get rid of, and who were on massive wages!

Has Rowett learned from those managerial transfer mistakes, or could he repeat them if Berylson was to give him a decent transfer pot at the end of this season? That is the $64,000 question! I’d like to think he has learned from those mistakes, because if we don’t want another season like this one, with too many draws that could cost us a play off place (or better), we have to buy one, possibly two 20+ goal scoring forwards, as well as a box to box midfielder and perhaps another covering centre half, if we want any chance of doing better this season (especially if we were somehow able to get to the play offs or, shock horror, promotion to the Premiershit!).

ha ha more deluded fools

One league cup in 130 plus years and they think they are massive
And only reached that because of a missed penalty by West ham with Bobby Moore in goal for them in the semi

And just a few years ago their main tactic was a big player at the back throwing the ball in from throw ins onto the nut of their land of the Giants forward line
Wenger once said they were the enemy of football

Barca they definitely are not and never will be

I think $64,0000 Is about right for our transfer kitty.

Actually, I make trips up there ti bring back oatcakes, too. And always had an oatcake from a hole-in-the-wall shop when we played Port Vale.

One of my favourite foods.

They may have one League Cup and they may think they're massive but they're not as big as Charlton. Sleeping Giants.
