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.
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?
