One thought on “Millwall Sack Manager Steve Lomas After 4-0 Boxing Day Defeat to Watford”

  1. Excellent news. About 10 games too late and should never have been appointed in the first place. To be fair he was left a complete mess by Jackett but then compounded it by signing some of the worst dross to ever play for Millwall. As a result, nobody is going to want the job. Holloway won’t go there. We are better off going down and then rebuilding the club from top to bottom. Scouting and youth system used to be strengths. Now the club is full of journeymen rubbish playing kick and rush.
