Shambles again. Windass Marriott & Patterson are just dreadful 

I disagree about Windass, but Marriot and Bob Carolgees are a waste of time. We should start with Rhodes - Windass

Absolute sludge this football served up by Monk

 

Hoof and hope, hit and chase sludge

 

6 goals scored all season and half of them were penalties 

 

Monk out, had enough 

Hell of a lot of short passes on the floor in the first half.

 

It was good to see them mix it up.

 

Very little quality though.

 

Only started being positive in the 2nd half.

Don't score goals, don't win games. At least we didn't lose. 

 

Off the bottom is a positive, but another opportunity missed. 

 

If DC is serious about aiming to compete for promotion, needs to make a change now while we have time over the international break, or hunker down for a relegation fight.

Well you could say that Monk is putting his stamp on the team, they're all signed on his watch. You might want to add Kachunga to that list.

I thought we did ok and looked the better side but we are just lacking that sharpness in front of goal.

 

Eight shots on target (plus that drive from Kachunga which went wide in the first half) compared to Millwall's no shots on target and limited to two half chances.

 

Great defensively but we need to convert such superiority into goals.

This goalscoring is a real issue. Thought Beattie coming in was to change all that but without out and out strikers that was never going to happen. Will have to limp to January and hope we are still in with a shout of stopping up. This wins and goals record for Monk ain't looking good. Then we MUST get a recognised striker or two in. What we should have done in the short pre-season. But oh no....

No shocker here. We are so garbage in the final third and rarely look like scoring. 

 

Just exactly what is James Beattie doing with them in training?

Not played a recognised striker. Windass, Patterson and Marriott are not out and out strikers.

I'm not a Rhodes fan but he should have had at least 30 minutes today.

Their goal keeper made 8 saves

Yep, Millwall were bobar and we failed to put them to bed. 

 

It was a better performance in comparison with many of our recent games but still not good enough in terms of how we go about it. Not enough conviction to take games to the opposition from the start, even when they come to sit back, as is reflected in the amount of first half goals we score under Monk.

 

We started the second half well but his understanding of how it was going resulted in him taking Pelupessy off fro Brown when we were well on top and resulted in our worst 15 minutes of the half as we lost our shape and Brown failed to make an impact.

I wonder if DC prefers Monk’s style to Bruce’s. If so he’s in the minority.

Monk's style, surely a contradiction in terms as far as what is being served up as entertainment is concerned.
