Keogh "surprised" Leeds allowed Morison to re-join Millwall

ANDY Keogh admitted he was surprised to learn that Leeds United striker Steve Morison was re-joining Millwall on a season-long loan.

Keogh, who has previously played for the Yorkshire club, did not think the move would be on the cards given that Morison only joined the Whites in January. 

He said: "It's a very good signing. Steve did very well for the club when he was here before and he's a quality player in this division.

"I'm actually surprised Leeds have let him come down here. It is an interesting one but if we benefit from it, then that's great."

Keogh, who struggled for form in the second half of last season, also believes the return of Lions legend Neil Harris in a coaching capacity is another positive move.

"There's nobody better to learn from than Neil, especially at Millwall," he said. "I have never really met him properly – we've said 'hello' to each other a couple of times – but he seems like a nice guy and he knows the club inside out.

"It's good to have a proven striker in as a coach to help the forward players. Last season was very stop-start for me. I need to get past that and have a good run this year."

    Big season for Keogh who needs to prove he can still cut it at Championship level. Let's hope Bomber and Morison get the best out of him.
    PS - Simeon Jackson came on as a second half sub during Canada's shock 1-0 Gold Cup defeat to Martinique who don't even qualify for a FIFA ranking!!!

      @Strood Lion: This is the trouble with 24-hour news, we all want constant news and updates. Long-gone are the days when you'd have to wait for the South London News to find out what was going on.

    On paper, Keogh and Morison look like a great championship partnership

      @Reg Burrs Coat Peg:

      If both can regain the form they had then it is a very exciting prospect.

    I rate Keogh, and I reckon given the chance he can be a key player for us next year as long as he remains consistent. I would say that Keogh figures quite highly in Lomas's plans as none of the strikers that we are being linked with are of better quality than Keogh (On he's day). All we need now is pacey forward to compliment Keogh and Morison and to give us a different attacking option and 2 'QUALITY' midfielders to offer competition and we will be laughing. So Simeon Jackson, Nicky Bailey(& Wife) & Richard Chaplow .........'I'm calling you boys out'.....pull you're fingers out, give in to the ginger messiah and sign on the fricking dotted line, as these transfer negotiations are properly dragging.....

      @Windy: I know that most of you on here Big Keogh up but he lacks pace and also gets musceled off the ball quite often, I think he has good control and a good football brain and I would love to see them turn into a real partneship, I would like to see one other forward to allow SL to have other options up front.
      He will need to move a couple of players out to do this I know but I am sure that most of us would agree who these should be, I like the rest of you am looking forward to the coming season, more than I was after the last one finished, as I thought we would be stright in the relagation mire from the off.

        @Barnlion: Your right, i am guilty of biggin Keogh up and in my opinion rightly so. Clearly he had a poor end to the season along with all the other forwards, but i don't think we have seen the best of him yet and maybe this season with Bomber and Morison back he will start to show some of the form that he showed at the beginning of last season. I, like you definitely think we need another striker, that is blindingly obvious. But that striker needs to be pacey, a bit of a poacher. Morison & Keogh are good a running the channels, but we don't currently have a striker that can play on the shoulder of the last man that has true pace which make's the opposition play deeper. S. Jackson would be that player, but i reckon that ship has sailed....

          @Windy: Windy, this was not directed to you but all of the people that IMO see a better player than I do and as for the rest of what you have just posted I am in full agrement with you and lets hope we get what we both want a striker who can play off the shoulder of there last man and can control the ball like Claridge did.

    I would love some feedback from the team on their impressions of SL. Particularly Danny Shitu and David Forde. Most of all a couple more "quality" signings to give strength in depth to the squad. It is going to be a tough and long season and we need a lot of points from the start rather than keep scraping around the bottom half of the table all the time..so depressing and not good for the blood pressure!

    Hopefully Andy can put his personal problems behind him now and I'm certain him and Morro will be a major force this coming season, can't wait for the season to get going.

    Looks a good pairing to me, Andy works his nuts off every game and we needed a natural goal scorer like Morrison who puts himself in the right place time and time again who can feed off Andy's work. TBH i think he's gonna really step up this season and with Bomber back who knows 15-20 goals maybe. Another striker with real pace would be key i feel.

    Think about what our team could be:
    Forde
    Dunne, Shittu, Beevers, Lowry
    Henry, Abdou, Bailey, Chaplow
    Keogh, Morison.

    That's with Trotter, Bywater, Robbo, Wright, Feeney, Marquis and Martin on the bench. Wishful thinking but that's a mid-table side at the very least.

      @harryfabian: Like it....But if i was playing Fifa 13 and 'IF' we got all our targets, i think this would be a half decent team with a bit of depth on the bench
      Forde
      Dunne, Shittu, Beevers, Lowry
      Henry, Bailey, Chaplow
      Martin
      Morison, Keogh
      Subs: Trotter, Abdou, Bywater, Robbo, S. Jackson, Feeny, R. Warbara(Lad from Man City that we have been linked to)

      But i'm not so.........f**k if i know!!!

      @harryfabian: Good to have you back Harry, but you missed Woolford & DNG from your line up haha not really, but taking up your point but it could be mid table at best. At the moment we have not seen a Lomas team in actio, you cant count the game at Welling last night because if it is then we are in trouble.
      But being optomistic if he can get at least 2 decent players 1 up front and a real playmaker in the middle, and not too many injurys we should do ok and even be around the top six.

    I will risk a prediction that SL is so attacking minded we might end up playing 3-5-2. Think about the lack of talk about full backs and the apparent focus on MF'ers on the wings.

    That's interesting glyngo. In that formation i would like to see Morison and another up front, with Keogh at the front of the five. I'm a Keogh fan. I think he's a clever footballer who could work with the front two and also pick up the scraps and with a little flick or touch keep the momentum going. I also like the way he's happy to just pass or chip the ball in the net instead of his ego needing to blow the f****** thing off
