Striker Marquis signs new one-year contract with Millwall

MILLWALL striker John Marquis has signed a one-year contract extension.

The Lions academy graduate will remain at The Den until the summer of 2015 after being handed a new deal by manager Ian Holloway.

The 21-year-old has spent time on loan at Portsmouth and Torquay so far this season.

Marquis told the club's official site: "My season really hasn't got going yet, although I got some game time and scored a few goals during my loan spells.

"The new gaffer has shown real faith in me since he arrived, and now with my injury niggles behind me I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.

"It has really been exciting here since Ian Holloway came to the club, and the fact that he obviously believes in me is a real boost.

"I know I may have to wait for my chance to break into the team but I'm determined to keep working hard and grab the opportunity when it comes."

          @steveomfc5: I agree with you, he's no good. Runs around and tries but not good enough.

          Waste of a years wages and is the worst striker we currently have.

          Shall we offer the worst defender and midfielder a years extension as well?

        @bonnie1272: Bonnie I want to be part of it as well, but just like John I am not good enough to play for Millwall, Just look at his 2 recent loan spells 2 division below us he was sent back what does that say either about his ability or his attitude. IMO a very lucky boy.

    If Ollie can't get him firing then we have to admit that it hasn't worked out for JM, I do really hope he comes good though.

      @glyngo: THIS YOUNG MAN REMINDS ME OF RICHARD SADLER HE COULD NOT BUY A GOAL FOR MONEY . THE NEXT SEASON HE WAS SCORING GOALS FOR FUN . JOHN IS A GOAL POACHER IF YOU LOOK AT THE GOALS HE HAS SCORED FOR US HE HAS ALLWAYS BEEN IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME . HE PUTS IN A TREMENDOUS EFFORT PHISCALLY LETING THE CENTRE HALF KNOW HE IS THERE THE LOAN SPELLS WILL CERTAINALLY HELP IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE HIM COMING THROUGH AND BECOMING A FIRST TEM REGULAR AND SET AN EXAMPLE FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW GOOD LUCK TO HIM

        @OTIS: Marquis is nothing like Sadlier. Sadlier was a real footballer and when injury cut his career short, Millwall lost someone who could not only score goals but create them for others. Even in the lean times he showed he was a very intelligent footballer.

        21 is not all that young for a footballer and I really don't see any signs that there is any real technique or a footballing brain that make Marquis a potential starter in the Championship. I hope Holloway proves me wrong, but I can't see it myself.

        @OTIS: the thing about sads was his use of steroids, there's a good article about him and his use of it, a bit pointer towards he's progression seemingly overnight.

    If IH believes that JM has got the potential then I am very happy to give the boy a chance to prove himself.
    We should all just back every single player now that we have a true leader again at our great club.

    Happy and slightly bemused. Yes John is far from the finished product and imo he'll never be good enough for us at this level & for me he's dead wood but he's a workhorse. Plus he's got youth, something we're severely lacking at the moment. There were times when I'd have started John simply because he's the only one willing to run his socks off for 90 minutes. Hope he proves me wrong. My brother gave him a lift the other week and he (Marquis) called Morison s***!

      @harryfabian: if that is true marquis is a cheeky t**t who needs taking down a peg - what has he ever achieved apart from missing a sitter against Villa and getting lucky with the rebound - if he wants to see s**t he should look in the mirror - i am all for giving people a chance to sho wtheir worth but not gobshites who can barely make an impact in L2

        @Jim28: lol sounds like your dog should have got the contract.

        If the Moro comment is true then John has a long way to go to reach the level of 's***'. IMO 's***' is out of his reach.

    In the past has popped up with a goal but hasn't been given a decent crack because of love of loaning other clubs s*** (hulse, tyson). Seems like a distant memory when one of our own used to make an impression (Cahill, Reid, Neil, Sadlier, Iifle). Be nice to see a youth prospect become a good performing regular just not convince Marquis is the nan....

    WHY?! Awful players. Yes he shows spirit, but he cannot pass, shoot, dribble, cross....

    But hopefully he'll show some attributes after his loan spells (which he should have had at 18...!)

      @Jim28: Trotter has aspirations for bigger and better things. He will, unfortunately, go the way of most players who think they're better than they are. A sideways move and then into oblivion. We've got a very good manager now who in the next few weeks will shape the future of Millwall. If there are players who have been, or are, disruptive or simply aren't good enough or are big time charlies then I say cheerio old son.

    Reckon Aldo could do a vote on whether people think this is a good thing. To be fair lad, he runs his heart out and gets in good positions but his record is abysmal which is what a striker will be judged on. He will do well but not in this league. Shame as it's always good to see a youngster come through the ranks but we've got to be honest if we're aiming for promotion next year. JM is not good enough. I would love to be proved wrong.

    Big heart, brave and will run around, usually in circles, all day. I don't think the kid has the skill to make it. Mind you, a good few years back, I saw this 18-year-old striker and said: "This guy will never make a professional footballer. He can't run, can't shoot, has no control and doesn't know where the goal is. Total crap." He turned out to be Teddy Sheringham.

        @frank: Yeah, and then they sent him to Sweden on loan. I donl;' know who at Millwall saw what Sheringham was going to have later, but I defy any fan to have seen it in his first couple of years at the Den. Sheringham never developed any pace but his timing, reading of the game, and ability to be the iceman in the box, is what made him Millwall's greatest striker. It's great to be wrong sometimes about a Millwall player. Don't think I am about Marquis

    He is S*** end of, nothing has changed just because he's got a new contract, if he wasn't a south London boy no one would want him still, its a shame I wanted him to be good but he's had enough chances and is one of the worst strikers I've seen for us, since when did running around a lot and trying make you a footballer?? people get to carried away with all this pony about being local but if your s*** your s***, couldn't get in Pompeys team in league 2, he's a very lucky boy, if we are to move forward then why people think Marquis is good enough is beyond me, sounds harsh but hes had his chance and isn't good enough!

    We all have to remember that he's only 21 which is really young still. I know people arw going to remind me what age Rooney was etc but them guys are freaks of nature. Let's face it, if Holloway thinks he deserves a contract then no-one can surely question his judgement

      @bertstar: 21 isn't that young. Should have shown potential if he had any by now and he's not cut out for this league.

      Maybe they've kept him as back up should we get relegated to league 1.

    Don't see this as much of a gamble, his wages must be minimal & if the people in the know, who see him train & are paid to recognise talent think he's worth another year then where's the harm?
    I don't think he's not been given the best chance to learn with us until now, to much responsibility at times for such an inexperienced player over his short Millwall career which has put pressure on him & has turned some of our support against him?
    Far from the finished article but still fairly young? Not so sure he should be on our bench just yet but maybe to be used for his work rate & to take pressure off other players? Ollie & the coaches have 18 months to unlock any potential he may have or decide what sort of a player they think he should be?
    Good luck John, work hard, be patient, learn & hopefully you'll win over your doubters!
