Months after a lousy start made him leave Crystal Palace, Ian Holloway is reportedly joining the Eagles’ rival as manager of Millwall.
In what could make for a thrilling South London derby one day, the 50-year-old is tasked with bringing the Lions out of the Championship’s 21st position and into relevance for the first time since a 2004 FA Cup Final loss found them in Europe.
Holloway guided both Blackpool and Palace back to the top flight, but this job will require a relegation scrap at the bottom of the Championship and comes on the heels of a shocking FA Cup defeat to League Two’s Southend United that saw Millwall go down to 10-men and lose 4-1.
They have a mere draw from their last five Championship fixtures, which feature decisive losses to Watford, Leicester City and Middlesbrough.
Say what you will, but Ollie embraces a challenge. Do you back him to save Millwall?
