Striker Easter vows to prove his doubters wrong at Millwall

JERMAINE Easter insists he has no doubts about his ability to score consistently at Championship level – providing he is playing regular football.

Easter has joined the Lions on a permanent one-year contract, with the option of a further 12 months, following his spell on loan from Crystal Palace last season.

And the 31-year-old says he has come to The Den to "prove any doubters wrong", having scored just once in nine appearances in the final three of months of Kenny Jackett's reign.

"When I've scored more than 20 goals in a season, I was playing week in, week out and I had the confidence to go out there and finish chances," he said. "The Championship season is so demanding that it's difficult as a forward player to be out there for every minute.

"But you want to know that, even if you're not fully fit one week, a manager has the confidence in you to start you the next. When you're a regular, you can relax and score.

"There's no self-doubt. When I've scored batches of goals in the past, I was playing regular football. That hasn't happened in the last two years. I don't care who you are, if you're not starting games, you won't get into a rhythm and you won't score consistently.

"That's why I've come here – to play regular football and to prove any doubters wrong."

    I like a player with a bit of hunger. If he feels he has a point to prove it can only be a good thing so lets get behind the geez.

    Let's hope the new manager has got the same faith in you that you have got in yourself.

    Jermaine you are in pole position being the first striker signed this summer. It is up to you to establish yourself .If you find space like you did against Charlton you will do ok but if you play rubbish like you did at home to Forest you will lose your place---It really is up to you to make a name for yourself

      @lioncall: Lioncall, one swallow does not make a summer and to be fair anyone could have got that one at the trainspotters place, but he is now our player and if he gets into double figures we will think he has been a good signing. But I still dont understand why he has been signed before we have a manager?.

    I still don't understand how we can sign a player before the new manager starts? Who's qualified at the club to be making such team decisions? Why can't we wait for the new manager to sign the players he wants - Ambler has already said the new person will have plenty of time before the season starts.

    I wouldn't be so concerned if the player in question was worth rushing out to sign, but we've seen what he has to offer. At best he'll be a fringe N'Guessan type of player and at worse he'll be our regular forward (in which case we'll undoubtedly be relegated next May).

    If I were you son, I'd concentrate first on banging in the goals in the pre-season friendlies before declaring your desire for regular football.

      @lionking: He's going to need some creativity from mid field to be able to function. I don't think Ronaldo would have scored many with the mid field we had last season.

    Let's see how ambitious the board are with who we get as a new manager? We will soon know, if it's someone who is big enough to demand financial support or a no hoper who gets by on peanuts?????? If it's a big name, Jermaine son you might not even get a game????

    If you recall the football we played last year, it was dull, predictable and fairly straightforward to defend against. We had some not great but certainly competant strikers who were living on scraps. The coaching was clearly not good enough. If the coaching is improved under the new manager I am sure the strikers will be scoring regularly.
