Harris will focus on working with Millwall's goal-shy strikers

NEIL Harris admits he will "naturally gravitate" towards working with Millwall's strikers after returning to the club in a coaching capacity.

The Lions' all-time leading goalscorer says he hopes to breath new life into the likes of John Marquis and Andy Keogh during pre-season training this summer.

Harris said: "There are some super players here but maybe a couple need a little more guidance, support and a few pointers on the pitch. We've got players here that can score.

"I will focus on the centre forwards and my aim is to work with them individually and as a group in training.

"Marquis is certainly an interesting one for me because I saw him come through and progress, so there is work to be done buy levitra with prescription there. Keogh is a fantastic player and I loved playing against him and watching him from the stands because he's a top player.

"I'm going to support Andy and get him back firing and playing week-in-week out."

Harris is hoping that his experiences as a player will help him become a better coach. He said: "I'll try to be myself – a positive character. Communication is a big thing for me – that you talk and guide people.

"That's got to be a two-way thing between players and coaches during training sessions, and certainly before and after games.

"I see that as something for me to do. I am not going to change my mannerisms or personality. I'm relying on my personality to make me a good coach."

    What the hell's going on at The Den? Suddenly everyone's talking sense, sounding really positive, making fantastic decisions (Prostate Cancer UK and the retro kit marking 20-years at the New Den) and generally transforming the mood from the end of last season. Well done all concerned!

      Agreed. Seems to have been a major shift in how Millwall is run. Always seemed to me to be amateur. Hopefully, everyone connected to Millwall take up the challenge and follow Lomas with hard work and passion, which was sadly lacking last year especially. Transfer window officially open in a few days. Hopefully Bailey will put pen to paper soon and then we'll see what happens with the others.
      Someone mentioned Gallen on here recently. Anyone know what's happened with him ?

    I'm sure Harris will pass on his talent of going down 'like a sack of s***' in the penalty area 🙂

    Lots of talk of this player and that player - we have not signed anyone of note yet, remember that. We have been fed all this talk before! Not the least bit excited since the new manager was appointed, you have to come to the table SL before you get me on board as a supporter of you. Sign some decent players and maybe you will change my mind a little about your ability to manage my club.

    I'm confident Bomber will get the best out of our existing strikers - and whoever we buy.
    Mind you, a lot could depend on whether the new mood of optimism sweeping News At Den continues when the new season kicks off.
    If we end up with four or five new signings it will take time for them to settle in and although statistics are like a lamppost to a drunk, used for support rather than illumination, it's worth remembering that Bomber only scored four times in his first 20 games for the Lions and Steve Morison only managed three in his first 20 games.
    A lot of fans wrote of Tony Cascarino and Teddy Sheringham's chances of forming an effective partnership - and look how that ended up!!!!!!!

      @Lonz: Talking of Cascarino have you read his book its quite enlightening about his time at Millwall.

        @Sealion: I didn't realise he had a book. Does it put us in a good light Sealion? If not, I won't bother.

    There are reports tonight that Leeds will let Morison rejoin Millwall on a season-long loan so they can free up some wages and sign Noel Hunt from Reading. I seem to remember floating that possibility a few days ago!!!!
