Charlton striker Church mulling over Millwall loan move

CHARLTON striker Simon Church is considering an offer to join Millwall on loan until the end of the season.

The Lions have agreed a deal with their south London rivals to borrow Church for the second half of the campaign, and it is now down to the player to rubber-stamp the move.

Church, 26, was previously a target for former Millwall bosses Kenny Jackett and Steve Lomas.

He has been brought to Ian Holloway's attention by new first team coach Nigel Gibbs, who worked with the Wales international when he was a youngster at Reading.

Church's preference would be to move to The Den on a permanent basis, with his Addicks contract up in the summer, but a loan is currently the only option on the table.

    Only think this could work if 4-4-2 so up top with Gregory.. if playing up alone cant see the point in the signing really.. he was thought highly of at reading just lost his way massively.. we shall see

      @SLloyd23: I don't see Gregory figuring in any plan going forward. He hasn't made the step up from non-league and it doesn't look to me like he can.

        @Glasshalffull: you are so wrong about gregary he's looking a lot better every game and considering he from non league he's stepping up still learning and he's not to blame when he ànt getting the right ball in or having a good partnership with another striker when the others ant putting as much work in as him or just not up to it

        @Glasshalffull: for me personally I agree that our current style of play doesnt suit gregory. As we are being too direct due to Holloway not trusting the defenders on the ball any more. But, Gregory has looked decent when he has played, good movement. He is a very good striker but doesn't offer much use unless we utilise him properly which for me we are not as otherwise he would have scored more than 4 goals this season

        @Glasshalffull: he's not great at creating his own chances, but if he has a good chance, he will most likely finish it. That's why we need another striker up there with him

        @Glasshalffull: Totally disagree, Gregory has made huge strides forward and is scoring goals and putting himself in scoring positions in a team that isn't functioning. I agree he needs to develop further but generally I am really pleased with what I have seen from him. I am astounded that so many people thinks he has flopped, what were they expecting from a player that stepped up from non-League this season????

        @Glasshalffull: I remember a few saying that about Sherringham until they brought Cascarino in who was on the same wavelength. If Holloway stopped f****** around with the team and stopped using players that couldn't read a map let alone a football match Gregory might get some decent service.

      @kell: Millwall have signed many players that didn't fit into other teams but were a success with us. Ian Dawes, Jimmy Abdou, Carlos Edwards, Wilkinson, Steve Claridge...the list goes on. It could just be that their face didn't fit or they had a manager that played a system that didn't suit them, or their squad was stronger than ours in that position. I personally think church needs to show commitment early and then get stuck in to winning a place in our team, if he applies himself he could be a great success.

          @tomking1: My worry is he plays his b***** off and at the end of the season gets picked up by someone else on a free. He has potential, is a good age and if he does come, that IH brings the best out of him...which might be difficult with IH because he hasn't done it with the pile of poo we have so far this season!

    Our scouts only seem to be able to afford tickets for reserve games. There is a reason these players are not playing first team football or out of contract. We see this only too well AFTER we have signed them.

    I have no recollection of seeing this guy live so am not sure what he's about or what sort of game he plays, is he pacey,good in the air,run the channels,down the middle,holds it up,what is he. It's all very well coming on here saying he's crap etc but maybe he's not being played to his strengths, ours are not . Anyway what we do know is he's only 26 ( he's actually younger than GREGORY ) and I do remember him being highly thought of in a very good READING side , has played 29 times for WALES,not much of an international team but will have gained plenty of experience playing against good international players. I'm Not interested in the CHARLTON link, we don't know why he's not getting in their team , we know they bought VENTEKOLE for over a million,and are now negotiating to buy a young STANDARD LIEGE player,so maybe you need to be from Belgium to get in. Who knows this just may be a really good move for both him and us, got to be worth a punt for a mob that's basically skint surely.

    very hard to be enthusiastic about a reserve striker for a team that can't score

    we are not making enough chances at home - we need play makers not finishers necessarily - as it stands a lot will rest on Paris and he is stepping up 2 divisions
    it seems that this window is cost neutral - we can only spend what we off load in terms of wages - that just won't do it unless we are lucky

      @Longfield Lion:

      too much money - straightforward - if people turned up for home games instead of moaning we might have some money to spend - everyone wants a Chelsea ticket, don't they

      when we were last promoted everyone said that we would do well to survive, which was true - we had a very good year as Morison was on song - we sell him ad why should we be anywhere other than bottom 6 every year since - just go back 4 years and think about it - we have not spent the relatively little money we have wisely - survival is realistic - just look at the players other championship teams have - when we had puncheon, wood, kane and Townsend we looked much better - the reason is obvious

        It's the players that don't turn up mate i think it's a bit harsh blaming the fans for not going. The club/team should be giving the fans a reason to turn up but they don't. Four years of s*** home form and no fight and you blame the fans. It;s an expensive hobby nowadays and people have more important things to spend their hard earned on. I have a season ticket and still go but it's not been fun for a while.If the club didn't waste money on 30 year old journey men we might have had a bit to spend.

    Personally I think this could be a coup. Get him on loan, if he plays well and scores a few we know he already will sign longer term. If he is crap then we don't sign him. I can't imagine he is on a lot of money so we should still be able to get another decent striker for a bit of money. We get Church in instead of Hof along with 1 other quality strike hopefully.

    Saying that my CAFC mate said he is shi*e but hoping someone who refuses to score for the anoraks can come here and bang loads in! Think how good it would feel to get the best out of him and the anoraks couldn't!

    General opinion is he is not very good then, season tickets in the bin and not coming to games, the bloke has not kicked a ball for us with that attitude the players could have the right to say what is the point but the number of comebacks we have had this year they don't. It is a loan deal our coach and all pass managers rate him but we know better without seeing him play regular. Because of our crowd size we cannot afford to look at proven strikers and even if we could they would go to bigger clubs. Look at Balotelli 15 Million, 150K a week Italian international, in the pocket of a Millwall academy player now that is a waste of money, with Church we are risking his wages. We are in the business of trying to find gems before the price goes up if he does not score, try or benefit the team then you have every reason to say "I was right" just hope, if we get him, and he helps us stay up you have the good grace to say "got that wrong sorry". We are called supporters because we 'support' our club and all who play for it, We buy the ticket and a program, wear the shirt, eat the pies and drink the beer we are not 'fans' like most premier teams have who hang their hat on who ever is winning. After all that I am not sure about him but I will trust the staff who know more about it than I do and I will be the first to say got that wrong.
    Rant Over.

        @munson68: As I said I am not sure and his record is not good but both Gibb and Ollie see something in him not to mention who ever was in charge of Wales. Also on the 'hunger' point he is out of contract at the end of the season so has every incentive to do well. I have a mate who is a season ticket holder at Watford who said that Gibb was someone they really wanted back at the club and was gutted when we got him, so I guess he knows something about the lad. Lets really hope we need a very big humble pie to share out at the end of the season.

      @lennie the lion: I appreciate your points but the same arguments could be used for Hulse, Tyson etc. Some times we get it wrong as in Edwards and Hoff and we are glad when that happens but as if the guy is not producing has not produced the goods can't get in the 1st team of a mediocre to poor championship side what makes anyone think he will improve here. In fact the reverse has been happening, we have signed reasonable players and turned them into s****.

    A couple of weeks ago, on news at den there was a story relating an Icelandic attacking midfielder. I just stumbled across that Wolves have ended his trial. Look at him he knows where the net is, from any range. His name is Gudmundur Thorarinsson.

    @LENNY THE LION : well said LEN, spoken like a true supporter of his club. I really do think some those who come on here should go and support some BILLY big b******* team with loads o money that can go and buy all these players and not a two bob little outfit like us. We get small home crowds every week , we had 5,400 on sat, and a lot of them were bradfords, we get little more than the likes of ORIENT, SOUTHEND , Yeovil and the likes , some on here should take a reality check.

    When are millwall gonna actually show any ambition everyone bangs on about where are small club but it feels like where the only team in the division that doesn't want to put our hands in our pockets the chairmen has put a lot of money in to this club can't take that away from him but unless u spend decent amounts on good players it's gna be this every season bored of it. And this is a perfect example we are gonna sign church who is a charlton reject while charlton have today signed tony watt used to play for Celtic -Young,hungry,pacey and can score a goal and he cost a million quid ENOUGH SAID !

    Who does everyone think we need to bring in? Not many names being mentioned on here, just seems to be whoever the club are linked with ain't gonna be any good for us. Maybe we should try getting Young Nicky Powell on loan from Utd to play behind Gregory and bring a bit of creativity to are non existent attacking flair

    All this talk of bringing in this or that striker ,is immaterial really ,as ollie insist's on playing a lone striker ,the thing is we do not get the ball forward quick enough ,and the support for the striker is so late that defender's have enough time to regroup if they actually need to , It is not untill we go 2 or 3 goal's down that we show any urgency from mid-field to get support forward. Untill we go behind we seem to make to many passes in mid-field without any penetration into their back four ,who dont have break sweat in containing our lone forward.

    This pr£&ok is really p****** me off, his mulling it over. Let's have it straight if it was a choice of the hoff or charlott church give me the hoff he done more in half a dozen games then Mrs church achieved all of last Season. Yes the hoff messed us around thinking there was better options elsewhere but at list he has a good enough reason to be thinking bigger but church what's he done absolutely f£&he all

    The Chesterfield lad will do me for starters. Yes you have to spend money for a decent striker. Yes you need to get bums back onto seats. Its the chicken and egg situation. You speculate to accumulate, attendances wont get any better with strikers firing blanks. We seem to attract those types. The best form of defence is attack.

    I wasn't keen on Church when the rumors first come about and I'm still not BUT I will give the guy a chance if he joins us. That's the problem with some of our fans, defeatist and that's before he's even signed for us! I'm also sure that if he does sign and scores the winner on Saturday at Blackpool a few people will change their minds on him very quickly...

    I want to see us to bring in big players and exciting talent but I also understand that we are not that kind of club, never will be either. This is Millwall and as frustrating as it is and however much I moan and complain about it, I wouldn't have it any other way... It's in the blood.

    'Some people stand in the darkness, afraid to step into the light' Not the The Hoff. When he's not saving lives as a life guard, he's saving Millwall from the drop. I reckon all this talk of Church is just so Hoff drops he's asking price. Personally thought the Hoff battled hard but we need goals quick.

    Who the f*** knows anymore. Maybe Chelsea can give Drogba for a couple of games.

    I used to dream of promotion, now midtable boredom would be like going up.

    I know this wont be a popular post but I would rather re sign Hoff until the end of the season on a small fee at least we know he can do a job for us, for a big lad he was good with the ball at his feet and I think he scares the crap out of most defenders .
    Yes he thought he was billy big b******* but I do think Now that could all work to our advantage but in general im not very excited buy the strikers we are being linked with we should have gone for Grey who went to brenford for half a mill which now seems cheap

    Some of you think this is Football Manager or something...
    Teams are not going to just let top quality strikers go, and if they were they probably wouldn't choose Millwall.
    We have to take risks in the transfer market and hope they pay off!! We don't have a massive budget to play with and that's why we have had to come mutual agreement to terminate contracts just to free up some wages....
    So, instead of slagging off everyone linked with the club and demanding we sign better, stop and think... Who's available??? How much budget do we have and at least IH isn't giving these players 2-3 yr contracts!!!
    A short contract for Church, with a view to earning a contract could favour all parties!

    Saying that, Church will probably come in bang in a shed load of goals then sign for someone else that can pay more money...

    Millwall boss Ian Holloway will make an offer to Dundee United winger Gary Mackay-Steven whose contract is up in the summer. The Scottish international has stated previously that he would like to play in England but United are hopeful he will sign a new contract. Swansea, West Brom and league 1 side Sheffield United are also interested but Holloway hopes he can convince him to join the South London club & could try to push it through this month
