‘Did I just read that correctly’ – These Millwall fans couldn’t understand Rowett logic during Blackburn Rovers defeat
Millwall lost 2-0 at home to Blackburn Rovers in the Championship this afternoon.
Millwall went into today’s game at The Den in 10th-place of the Championship table, and with the chance to close the gap on the top-six to just six points.
But instead, Gary Rowett’s side were beaten by Blackburn Rovers who found the net through Bradley Dack in the first-half, and Sam Gallagher in the second.
There were some lacklustre player performances in that Millwall side today, but one of them wasn’t Billy Mitchell – the 19-year-old made just his fifth Championship appearance of the season today, before being hauled off in the second-half.
He was taken off for Matt Smith in what was an attacking change from Rowett, but fans couldn’t understand why he took Mitchell off after what was a fine individual performance from him in the first-half.

He’s lost the plot 🤣🤣
