At a Glance Analysis: Troy Parrott vs Bristol City
By Harry Hotspur -

Yesterday we brought you an update on Spurs loanee Troy Parrott, which didn’t put him in a great light.

If we look for greater context, there’s a case to be made for the Irishman finding himself in the midst of a pretty poor Millwall side. Yesterday they lost again and, this time to Bristol City by 3-goals to nil.

Total actions/successful

However, it doesn’t matter who is on your side if you can’t master the basics. To keep this simple, if we look at total successful actions, then most of the time, Troy’s interactions with the ball were unsuccessful. This is worrying stuff. Although against Bournemouth a few weeks ago, that percentage fell as low as 25%, which is not so much worrying as terrifying.

When a player’s heat map for the season resembles a mildly foggy day, that would point to a lack of effort. One shot against Bristol (which was blocked) takes Parrott’s tally for the Championship side up to 4 that have now been on target. Have Millwall got any football coaches on their books?

I watched the game and focused on Parrott. He was pretty active, dropping deep quite a bit- I almost thought he was an attacking mid. The pitch was terrible- hard to get to stuck in. He didn’t get many chances to score but had no one providing him anything. Overall I think this is good experience to play a lot against decent competition. He looke like he belonged out there and not an 18y kid.

When Parrott came out, I switched to Norwich game, just when they put Skippy in. He was great, basically playing PEH role, last man back and box to box. He made a few great runs and looked like PEH jr. He could definitely play for Spurs now but this year has been great for him.

If Millwall don’t work try another club, talent will out if Troy puts the work in. His problem is that behind his back and every young player is a long line of hungry talented players wanting to steal his place.

Only 18, needs to play as part of a better setup than Millwall, maybe in League 1.

You’re right but hopefully Troy can get going still.. To put both into context then Skipp has been starting in his favoured position at a team flying at the top.. Troy has been on the bench and played out of position on the right wing at a team sat at the bottom. Two very different situations… I would like to see Troy play up top for them because at least one of those millwall strikers is rubbish and they play with two.

🤦‍♀️ Sorry can’t edit and Troy was deployed up top.. I saw some of the second half and he was dropping deep. Read that team sheet too quick too… Still Norwich and Millwall are two very different changing rooms.. I’ve played for teams at top and bottom and its much harder when your team mates are shit and low on confidence. Kane never lit up the lower leagues either. As long as Troy plays and learns something from his time there then its all good.

I tend to agree, crucial year or two for any youngster developing. I think Parrot was thrust forward in everyone’s mind because we went though a lengthy period with no backup to Kane, so these kids are seen as the solution. Not really fair and too early but he will need to do better on loan, Kane grafted out on loan as a kid, no look at him. However, Kane is the exception rather than the norm, I would wager…
