Millwall saw Neil Harris leave the club last week as he decided it was best for him to move on and for someone else to take the reins in Bermondsey.
The former striker left the club with his head held high as, despite the run of form they were on as he called things a day, overall they’ve been left in a fantastic position from which to build and getting the right manager in should see them head in the right direction.
Whilst we wait to see who they appoint, though, we caught up with former Millwall man Alan Dunne to grab his thoughts on the Lions’ prospects this season.
He told Football League World exclusively:
“With Millwall it’s up and down, there’s no consistency there because of how tough the league is; every game is a tough game. They can go and beat Leeds Saturday and then something else can happen the next week. I think if Millwall finish in the second half of the table comfortably it’s a good season for them this year and build on that with a new manager.
“Where they are as a club, staying in the Championship is massive for them. It buys them time and as you get more experience, the club grows and then eventually you can have a crack at the top six. I think their initial target is to get 50 points, stay in the league and then build on that – have a good FA Cup run and the longer the club’s in the division the more chance they’ve got of growing.”
