Manager Ian Holloway has said that he’s not overly concerned by Millwall’s loses because as of yet it hasn’t hampered his plans.

Whether that becomes the case in January with us already being linked to people like Arsenal’s Chuba Akpom remains to be seen though, as whilst not confirming his interest, Holloway refused to rule it out simply saying that Arsenal were aware of his thoughts on the player.

However, on the financial front he told the South London Press that he knew what restrictions there would be and when they would hit when he took the job so his eyes are wide open on it.

‘I knew all along this would be the situation. A lot of it was down to who we had signed before I arrived. It might be a bit difficult in the short term, it does not affect me now – it affects the chairman and it will affect us next year. In the long term it will be fine because we have a fantastic owner.’

Holloway goes on to say he has experience of working with a tight budget though, and he does have certain freedoms next summer despite finances because we have 24 players going out of contract in the summer which means he knows he has a chance to thoroughly do what he wants with the squad come that time.

‘The eight whose deals go through to next year are good. I need the others to prove they are too, before we signed any more. I will just have to do different things if these players cannot achieve what I want, which is to get us closer to the top of the table. But I am confident they will get results.’

Holloway goes on to say that part of achieving that is to turn our draws in to wins and with us more than competing in games in general he knows we are good at this level and can kick on, but we need more three points than we are picking up and that is the fine margin in the majority of our matches so far this season.
