Three words that sum up Rowett’s start to life at Millwall



Gary Rowett is now well into his spell as manager of Millwall and it is a case of so far so good for the former Derby and Stoke boss.

Taking over from Neil Harris in October, he has steadied the ship impressively, keeping the relegation zone at a distance whilst reinstilling confidence in his side.

So, with the halfway point of the season approaching we decide to take a look at THREE words that sum up his reign at the Den so far…


Whenever a new manager arrives at a club there will always be a temptation to inundate their new side with a new brand and new style.

But Rowett has taken a smart approach. He does not appear to have tampered too much with the set-up under Harris but rather tweak it and instill a sense of confidence within the key men in his side.

Over time he will undoubtedly implement his own style, but for now he is playing it pretty well.


The Lions have lost just once in their six games under their new boss and haven’t been defeated in their last five.

Towards the end of Harris’ reign, a tendancy to crumble in the latter stages of games was beginning to creep in, however that has been beaten out of them impressively by Rowett.

A last gasp equaliser against Forest on Friday followed a late win against Charlton weeks earlier and that spirit and determination that was so synonymous with the Lions seems to have returned.


Whilst he has impressed on most fronts so far, the one beast continuing to hang over Rowett is how he performs in the January transfer window.

With both Derby and Stoke he proved to be wasteful in the market and that is something that he will have to disprove when recruiting for the South Londoners.

He will have a smaller budget than previous years which may actually help him. It will force him to be smart, rather than going into the month all guns blazing, like he has in previous windows.
