These Quotes Make My Blood Boil....

Millwall manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio London:

"On our recent run of form, I always felt this game could be a little bit of a banana skin.

"We had won three on the spin and to win four in a row is very difficult to do in the Championship

"We knew it would be difficult and we defended really well. They didn't have an awful lot of opportunities to hurt our goal.

"We had a lot of control of the game and moved the ball quite well until the final third. It was difficult to find the quality which was required."

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"Away from home, any point is a good point - especially in the Championship - although this game won't live long in the memory.

"They paid us a massive compliment by way they set up, with five at the back. It was very difficult to break down.

"We are pleased with David Stockdale coming in and a clean sheet. The back four defended really well.

"If you get points away from home and win your home games, that is a recipe for staying up."

Sorry! But could you imagine Charlie Hewitt, Benny Fenton, Gordon Jago, Bruce Rioch, John Doc and others coming out with this absolute bollocks....!!!!

The fact that the opposing manager said we paid Wycombe a compliment is all you need to know. That is code for being quite amazed with our negative set up.

And GR - yes it is difficult to win four on the spin in the Championship - especially when you don't even try to beat a hopeless team marooned at the bottom.

This is bloody Harris speak. Fearing shit opposition, rather than letting them fear us. What have Millwall supporters done to put up with this ultra-negative tripe for so many years?

If we were just above the relegation zone, you could understand a bit of caution. But a defensive set up when we are safely in mid table with nothing to lose, and playing at home against a team bottom of the League, is bonkers.

I don’t think Rowett would raise if he was holding a Royal Flush in Poker.

What gets to me is all this glory talk of an unbeaten run of 8 games in the league. Yes great not to lose, but 4 wins and 4 draws means 8 points handed over to our apparent safety first approach. And yes some impressive results against Watford, Norwich and Reading. But 2 wins (Cardiff and Wycombe) and 2 defeats would net us a greater reward and see us that much closer to knocking the play off places door. Wins are far more rewarding than a string of draws. FFS go for it GR, what is there to lose?

Rowett is the Championship Mourinio, can’t change that defensive mindset. If you are not going to attack Wycombe at home then when will you?
He won’t change its in his DNA

I completely agree with all of this except the bit about Charlie Hewitt, there can only be you and a couple of others that are old enough to imagine what he would have said (but I’ll take your word for it ;))

‘They paid us a massive compliment by the way they set up’ I’m not reading anymore of this post. Is this a cunting fucking joke. The fucking manager of the fucking team routed to the bottom of the cunting league is fucking thanking us for giving those cunts a free pass. Fucking hell

Outrageous. We got rid of that useless prat Harris and now we are stuck with an idiot who thinks we need to play 5 at the back against Wycombe. Taxi for Rowett. If we were allowed in the ground he wouldnt get away with this

Rowett has a dour personality and his way of playing reflects that perfectly. We knew what we were getting when he came. We will be served up the same negative , uninspiring football as long as he is with us.

You have only to read Hewitt's programme notes 1936-40 and 1948-1955. Then you would be left in no doubt about his philosophy.

You say that but be careful someone could get 5 aces
