Holloway takes charge of his first match at Huddersfield this weekend with the London club languishing one point above the relegation zone.

But the former Crystal Palace and Blackpool boss eventually wants to get back into the Premier League with Millwall, and help improve the club's "tarnished" image off the pitch.

"I want to keep us up and then try to get us up," he said.

"And I want to do it in a way that I'm proud of. I want people to talk about a different Millwall, instead of what their minds linger on from the past.

"We had a problem in society when a lot of people at different clubs thought they could use football as a vehicle to be violent.

"This club has been tarnished. I hope we can add a way of playing that will make people be proud of something else about Millwall. I've got my tin hat on and I'm ready to go."

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
