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."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
