CRAIG BRAIDWOOD: " IF WE GET ANY SERIOUS OFFER FOR A PLAYER - WE'D TAKE IT."
This begins the first of a fortnightly series where managers from the setup are put to the test with questions from the public. Questions will be taken from the general public, and managers within the setup. This weeks FourFourTwo see's veteran Millwall manager and recently appointed Argentina Coach Craig Braidwood answer your questions. The well-respected manager hasn't had crazy success at the club, but has had enough to earn respect from the fans. Here are your questions answered...
What are your current ambitions with Millwall? Could you see a promotion scare?
Nicholas Fitz, Southampton
At present we aim to get up to top 10, which disappointing but better than where we are
When it comes to transfer deals, some say, you are very different to other managers in terms of players in/players out. Please explain your method?
Samantha Wills, Northampton
Our transfer policy is probably described as basic. We buy player who is priced at say £6.5m for bout £5m so after his transfer ban we can sell for profit - if he is good we keep him.
Rumours are Oscar Cardozo is on his way out being the clubs current top goal scorer? What do you make of this?
Mike Chrochin, Melbourne
Cardozo, like all players here have their price, if they do well they stay, if they dont then they are sold. if we get an serious offer for any player which we cant refuse, then we'd take it.
Could you see yourself ever leaving Millwall?
Sam Tsonidis, Lancaster
I left Millwall last season coz i thought it best for club without me as i was dragging them down so i resigned which wasn'jt easy. As soon as i was away I knew it was a mistake coz i wanted back, so i arranged with new manager to give me first option to return when he left. We did this and i got back, I will never leave them again, despite recent rumours that i had enough.
Do you ever see your self managing internationally? or will that effect your day to day life?
Pedro Santos, Barcelona
I managed BRAZIL but lost them when i left Millwall, I just took over Argentina and look forward to the challenge with them but millwall come first.
Was the lack of fan support, through the several seasons of not being promoted, could you see your self ever getting the sack?
Burek Azbudul, Besiktas
Small gates are a problem for getting cash in but it will get better with results, thats my job to get team back to DIV 3 and get support back
Some say EC7046 is losing some of it's major power in the footballing world. Is it still the finest league to play and manage in?
Ian Harris, Sydney
EC7046 is the BEST setup - in my book - and it will continue to be whoever is in it, setup is bigger than the managers or teams involved and THE setup to be in if you want a serious GW.
If we believed everything we read in the press, you lack financial stability? Could we see any new faces at Millwall?
Gary Simkins, Halifax.
We have cash probs but it never stops me getting new faces in when change is needed. I simply do a p/e with an external with a player, hence why i buy player with value higher than i pay .
In all your time in EC7046 who is the best manager(s) you have seen manage in the setup?
Callum Waltz, Tranmere
BEST manager overall in EC7046 is a tough one as I have been here since season 1 (5 games to play and i saved them from going down) Top 5 managers any order for me are: DOM, JOOLES, DAN, BEN NEWMAN, SON OF PLUTO. If i had to pick best ever its SON OF PLUTO 2nd JOOLES (sorry to others)
In contrast, who do you feel is currently the worst manager in EC7046, particularly an active manager on the fourm?
Callum Waltz, Tranmere
Worst manager ever in 7046 is Arsenal guy who resigned recently, he completely ruined them and other teams
From his time at Millwall, Craig was then asked to choose his Ultimate XI. Some surprising faces to say the least, but Craig was ever so confident in his Ultimate XI that if he had that team currently, he could rise to places Millwall have never been.
