Some Millwall fans on social media are divided over whether Troy Parrott showed enough glimpses of quality during his spell at the club to have warranted more opportunities or if the Tottenham man simply was not ready for the Championship.
Parrott’s time at Millwall did not get off to the best of starts after injury problems saw the striker miss out on a significant part of pre-season as well as the first few months of the campaign.
The striker struggled to get into the team when he regained his fitness with the majority of his 11 league appearances coming off the bench.
While some Millwall fans were critical of manager Gary Rowett for not making the best use of Parrott, others insisted that the standard of the Championship was simply too high for the Spurs youngster.
Everyone saying he isn't ready for the Championship, of course he was but if you're a striker who likes to score goals then you don't play for a negative manager like Gary Rowett

Good luck for the future, no doubting his talent, a real gem to look out for.

He was never played in the right position if we played him in a 4-4-2 with Mat smith or something like that he would have scored some goals to feed of his knock ons

He’s to good for us , all the bullshit negative football we play. It says something that he had to drop back and pick the ball up of the inadequate midfield. Still out with a forward and in with another holding midfield player . The only way is down.

Awful loan, looks like a league one player at best. Saying that, I’m sure he’ll score plenty for Ipswich now…

Not ready for this level, he was only taking up a spot on the bench for one of our youth players.

He not ready for the championship yet he still young and green at this level plus we all hyped him up to be the new Harry , I do think he will do well in league 1 .

Spurs Web Opinion
We have seen time and again with strikers that they often look like poor players when they are going through goal-droughts as they are short of confidence. I believe that had Parrott got an early goal after arriving at Millwall and a run of consistent starts, his spell at the club could have ended up being a lot more fruitful.
