Millwall boss: Feeney has been very professional since recall

LIAM Feeney has been "very professional" since being recalled early from his loan spell at Bolton, according to boss Steve Lomas.

The winger had been due to remain at the Reebok Stadium until Christmas but was brought back to The Den last week and came on as a substitute against Reading.

Lomas said: "Liam did really well. We let him out because he was not getting any games but he certainly kicked on at Bolton. To be fair to him, he has not let his disappointment of coming back early affect him.

"He put in a quality cross for Steve Morison which was typical great wing play and Liam's got that in his locker.

"He's been a little bit hindered by the fact that James Henry has always been considered the number one, but James is gone now so it's up to Liam to stake a claim to play regularly. He's got pace and a good cross on him.

"Liam was very professional. He came in on Friday and said, 'no problem, I'm ready to start or if you need me off the bench'. He came on and certainly added to the game."

    I don't know who's the custodian of the Millwall board's brain cell but LF should've been left at Bolton to impress and maybe start a bidding war in January. Clearly, the lad is not in SL's long term plans and we can all see LF leaving at the end of the season for free.

      @Bolland: In a very tight champtionship we can't afford millwall players winning other teams points specially when there underneath us. But a loan move to orient and he would have 10 goals.

        @Bush:

        That's not my point, Bush, Bolton won't sign him now cos we've played our hand and shown them that we're desperate to get rid, for whatever reason. WBA played it clever last season with Chris Wood and let him carry on scoring goals for us & at the same that alerted other teams to his potential. That's what we should've done with Feeney and let him wow the Bolton faithful & alert other clubs at the same time.

          @Bolland: I agree that we acted very early on feeney, but as the current league stands bolton are underneath us, the chris wood scenario is very different he was scoring goals and they didn't want to sell first of all, and Leicester doubled what we offered. Your clutching strews If you wanted a dollar out of Feeney his not one to look out for.

            @Bush:
            Over the many long 40 years of supporting the Lions, I've seen too many decent players leaving the club for nowt to free up wages for another player, who was probably no better than the outgoing one. I'm not a fan of LF as he's a bit flaky, imo, but I can see him leaving in the summer on a free & probably end up at somewhere like Orient. I would just like our board to show some nouse and, if he's not wanted, sell him for some much needed money.

    He needs to be professional about it, that's what he's paid to do. I hope he can produce the form he had when we first signed him. A good option from the bench when the game opens up...... Henry gone, so the deals done is it ?

    Play 4-4-2 and he can play, but current 4-3-3 and he is too susceptible to defensive errors and not tracking his marker. A good sub when you are chasing the game though as he will tear opposing full backs apart.

    wheather henrys gone for good it or not does not matter right now,what matters is that LF has the chance to shine and earn his place in the lions team with some great Perfomances, if off the bench or not, we know what he can do, he shown glimpses of his ability when he has had a little spell of being picked, we all know that wingers, like strikers are confidence players, give him a run in the team like Bolton did and see how much better he and us will fare.
    Please excuse my Grammer and linguistic terminology, I bloody Turkish init.

    Feeney isn't going to start a game unless we have a multitude of injuries or Morison starts and we play 442.
    On that basis, he has little chance to impress coming off the bench. You can't blame him for wanting away.

      @NICKOLA: that's the way modern football is, you play an extra man in midfield to keep it tight then if you have one bring on a wide man when the space appears.

    Feeney is a good player and rather with Millwall at the moment considering the need for a pacey winger

    Feeney was our only outlet for many months when he first signed, eventually almost every team we played against doubled up on him and marked him out of the game. That was back in the day when KJ played central midfielders on the left wing, making the right wing our only attacking option. IF he plays in a ballanced team we may see the bst of him yet again, but it will have to be in a formation that supports two wingers. Woolford fully deserves to be playing in my opinion.

    As said , SL doesn't appear to play wingers. He plays midfielders on the right or left. In 4-3-3- you can't have an out and winger cos it leaves you light when tucking into midfield when the opposition have the ball.

    I'm affraid Feeney should have stayed at Bolton an any player who wants away, should not be in the team, as I think, the bad apple will only sour the rest.
    Millwall still have a load of deadwood lying about, out them on load too. If they impress others all well and good maybe we'll get a few bob for them, maybe not, but the wage bill will be lower which again would benefit Millwall.
    I've seen players come and go in the sixty years I've watch Millwall and we haven't changed at all no money has always been the cry

        @bazzer: when it's tough in Feb-March and we have injuries and suspensions the likes of Wright will be needed. You can't go through a season with 14 players these days, the poor loves aren't up to it.

        @bazzer: It's obvious from his attitude on the pitch Just Like Henry last season and Trotter too. By not putting full energies into the team due to a brain failure or pressure from outside all of them have let the club down ....... Players who are happy give the best they can ok they may have deffiencies buy they try ...... Feeney Henry and Trotter in my opinion are not trying therefore want out

    Very harsh on Trotter. He has come back from surgery and is getting better and better. How can you say he isn't trying? He has been one of our best players so far.

      @wall2wall: Quite simple watch his passing and possional play if you dont give me the ball I aint playing seems to be his method.
      I agree his problems are being over come but he is still a long way off in his determination to win the ball, pass to a Millwall shirt accurately, and win a game
