Ollie: New signing Ranegie is exactly what Millwall need

IAN Holloway believes Mathias Ranegie will make a big impact at Millwall.

The Lions manager has tried and failed to sign Ranegie before so admits he is relieved to have finally got his man.

Ranegie, signed from Watford on loan until January, made his debut as a second-half substitute against Blackpool at the weekend.

Holloway said: "I'm very pleased to have him.

"Mathias only came in on Friday but it was nice to take Ricardo Fuller off and put somebody on who's built like him, because we need that sort of thing.

"I have had him on my radar for quite a while but I haven't previously been able to afford him. Now I've managed to get him.

"I nearly bought him before but it didn't come off. I'm pleased that he's wanted to come to us."

Asked whether Millwall are likely to make Ranegie's move permanent, Holloway added: "It's a loan until January but we can extend that if he likes us.

"I don't think Udinese sell their players unless it's for millions of pounds. He actually belongs to them, doesn't he?

"Udinese nicked him when I was trying to buy him because their scouting network is very good – completely unbelievable really.

"He's exactly what we need and a very, very talented striker."

    We need a goal scorer so will reserve judgment on him for now

        @Jim28: I agree with you on this one jim ,he won many header's and put himself about,one thing i did notice he made a couple of small run,s our mid-field did not pick up,this has to be addressed.
        On a lighter note when are you and bushwacker going to release the names of the powder puffs,after all its a bit cowardly not to name and shame.As i have said before i will be offended if i am not PP number one LOL.

        @Jim28:
        I'll happily remind you of that when your slagging someone off after the next game. You s*** off EVERYTHING 'wall. I've had a pop at you before because you said something that really didn't make you sound like you were Millwall. Now you have the cheek to say "I'll support him cos he's in a 'wall shirt. Make your mind up.

    If he does the business against Ipswich & Forest, I will start to be convinced.

    Done well when he came on its a shame there's a break could do with a couple more games to get fit. But we need greggs to be starting games as well.

      @block 28: What is it about Gregory with everyone. I don't think his first touch is that good at the moment, and I would rather have a player that has a bit more experience and knows the score than an ex Conference forward with a dodgy touch and sounds like a bit of an attitude. I say give Ranegie a chance to settle in and I think we will be pleasantly surprised.

        @beedoscores: I agree with you on this beedo,gregory came from non league,we all knew he might need time to adapt to the championship,had he put his original chance away against leeds,things might have been different ,still full marks to him for going on to win the penalty.
        But i do think ollie should have given him a go against southampton,

        @beedoscores: didn't Harris & Morison come from non league & Andre gray is doing alright at brenford. Why did they do well because they was and are playing in the first team every week whether they played well or not.

          @jim1222: haha, no one can really comment on him he won a few headers in the air, he's only 6ft 5 what did you expect!! is it any good flicking on the ball from the half way line with no striker up front ?? It's McDonalds Role thats ment to win the headers but that ain't gonna happen is it?

          I'm not saying McDonalds shouldn't play because he had a brilliant game last saturday!

    Ranegie had all the physical prowess that we need but also showed signs of reading the game and stretching the defence with dangerous runs into channels. I think that surprised many of our players, Fuller had been excellent up till last Saturday, seemed stationary whenever we had the ball. Either he was told to so that or he wasn't trying.

      @glyngo: could'nt agree with you more.we got some tough teams coming up so we need someone more more mobile.but the same happened at sheffield with gregory the mid either got a tenancy to over hit a pass or dont see the runner quick enough.its not as though we have'nt the talent in midfield we have.perhaps the angel can do better

    @glyngo: agree with your post fuller had a good game at Fulham but I don't think he can play bk to bk games. He's better coming on late like he did at Wednesday.

    On Saturday, he came on & won every header aimed at him & needed a Gregory or Easter to pick up the pieces. He did what Fuller can no longer do which is to run, hold & win headers. I thought he was a big plus & I hope that's the last we've seen of Fuller.

    We have nothing to lose with this loan, if he comes off and we are handily placed at Christmas then we can try to extend or buy, if he is two bob, we can top up his Oyster card for a one way to Watford Junction!

      @wongo: He is gonna cost more than £300 grand if he looks good and that's all we have apparently and that's pushing it due to FFP.

    So MATT SMITH went to Fulham for 500 grand. How come we wouldn't go back in for him, we offered 300 grand for scannel, surely smiths a better option for the extra money.
