Millwall fans have been quick to blame goalkeeper Jordan Archer for Friday evenings defeat to Fulham.

Welcoming the side to The Den for the clash, Millwall should’ve taken the lead in the first half with a number of chances coming our way, but Fulham took charge in the second half and found the net three times with Ryan Sessegnon, Kevin McDonald and Aleksandar Mitrovic all scoring.

With disappointment being the overriding emotion at the full-time whistle as our 17 game unbeaten run came to an end, some fans were quick to point the finger at one man for the loss.

Archer did have some support with many echoing Neil Harris’ words that we win or lose as a team. The support wasn’t just from Millwall fans either.

The former Tottenham Hotspur youngster was crowned Player of the Year in his first full season with us back in 2015/16. He joined on a permanent basis over that summer following an initial loan spell.

With 43 games to his name this year, he hasn’t suddenly turned into a bad keeper overnight otherwise Millwall wouldn’t have been anywhere near the top six in reality.

There are areas of the 25-year-old’s game that he needs to work on though, but with a number of clean sheets to his name this term I’d imagine the majority are prepared to give him the odd bad game or mistake here and there.

All goalkeepers have them after all.
