9 O’Clocker: Millwall Fans Have Seen More Than Enough Of Troy Parrott
By Harry Hotspur -

Troy Parrot is a player we’ve been looking at over the last few days. Now it gets worse. Beyond the unkind stats, we have first-hand opinions from fans who’ve had the misfortune to watch him play for Millwall.

OLIVER SKIPP Total successful actions

CONTEXT Yesterday Troy Parrott only managed a rate of 43% success in respect of everything he did, in 63-minutes for Millwall. In just 30-minutes for Norwich City against Barnsley, Skipp’s success rate was 88%.

Are you telling me that a man with talent, suddenly plays like his shoelaces are tied together, because he’s playing in a side that aren’t very good?

Yet some Spurs fans believe there is something there, a reason to challenge Mourinho. The reaction below was typical.

A blog today ran a piece that was highlighting how some fans were disgruntled with José’s recent comments: “And, honestly, I don’t know if I should say it or not, the players that I feel are more talented in the academy are not the eldest ones. They are very young,” carried here by TeamTalk.

The problem, as ever does not lie with Mourinho or some peculiar, invented prejudice; the boy simply isn’t good enough. This piece from FootballLeagueWorld today carries quotes from Millwall fans who’ve already seen enough of Parrott.

Parrott’s Millwall loan hasn’t shown even the faintest glimmer of hope, let alone success. His performance against Bristol City was extremely poor, again.

In this results driven game sentimentality counts for nothing especially when you have spent £200m on expensive underwhelming performers in the summer!

Darn I was hoping Jose would get to give him a spanking at the shopping centre before he got the bullet.

I saw him play for Ireland a couple of years ago against New Zealand and he doesn’t appear to have developed much physically since then. There is still time for Troy but the 2 year contract from Spurs tells me there are question marks among the coaching staff about him. It was a very un-Levy like deal for a hot prospect.

Good to see that an 18 year old has been dismissed as ‘simply not good enough’. The Championship is very tough and Parrott has been injured. He has plenty of time to work at his game and develop. Everyone who has worked with him has praised him. He’ll come out of this stronger and develop into a top player

No. He got kicked in ankle in November and was out for a good few weeks. He came back here to heal.

It was nasty knock that kept him out for a long while as you say. It’s been difficult to get back in and up to speed. He’s been quality when I’ve seen him and it’s never good to over praise or write off 18 year olds

Straight off the minibus at the services into one. I was too savvy though I was suspicious of them being able to read so avoided the brick. One of ours went straight down but justice prevailed.

Harry couldn’t see half the things Troy can see at his age on the pitch (movement wise) let alone the ability to carry it out. Development wise Troy’s way a head at the same age as Harry was then

But to be fair, Harry only wanted to go on to write a blog when he got older : )

I’ll be the first to admit that I thought Kane was awful in the early days, but the glaringly obvious difference seems to be attitude and work rate and desire.

Harry is well above average on this front, word is that Troy is not.

Proved wrong and always happy to eat humble pie I am one of those who did not think that Kane would make the grade.

Kane took a while to get going at Millwall , when he first came , but there would be the odd glimpse of quality and then he just took off ,havent really seen that in Troy , but the kid is only young and hope he comes good , we need all the help we can get . Have you got any other young players that can score goals ..

Doesn’t do to get your hopes up about young players, nine times out of ten they’re not going to make it and even if they do they can underwhelm.

Not entirely correct as arguably it’s 2 golden nugget youngsters namely Emile Smith-Rowe and Saka who have revived our N London rivals!
