Harris: Millwall keeping close tabs on Gillingham loanee

NEIL Harris is closely watching John Marquis' performances for Gillingham and says the striker could come into Millwall's thinking for next season.

Marquis, whose contract at The Den expires in the summer, has scored 7 goals in 13 League One appearances since moving to the Kent side on loan.

The 22-year-old was told in January that his deal wouldn't be renewed but Ian Holloway responded to Marquis' form by suggesting he wanted to keep the striker in SE16.

And Harris thinks very highly of the Lewisham-born frontman, who Gillingham hope to sign permanently.

"John's done really well at Gillingham and he's got a bright future," said interim boss Harris.

"He's scoring goals and deep down he's a Millwall boy that wants to play.

"What happens in the future is a conversation which will unfold as time goes by but we're certainly keeping close tabs on John and I speak to him regularly."

Millwall have also been monitoring centre back Jake Goodman during his loan spell at AFC Wimbledon, while Harris has been to see Fred Onyedinma play – and score – for Wycombe.

"John, Jake and Fred are three players that I know extremely well," Harris added.

"Jake and Fred have played a lot of games for me in the U21s, and so has John this year and last year.

"John I know really well because I've played with him – I know his character and capabilities inside out.

"I've watched John and Fred three times each in the last few months and they've scored every time I've been there, which is a big bonus for them!

"Fred is contracted to us and will be back next year to play in a Millwall shirt.

"Jake went out for first-team experience and he's someone we're also watching. Fred, John and Jake certainly have to come into our thinking for next season."

Regardless of who's in charge at The Den next season, Harris believes Millwall's youngsters will have a big part to play.

"There's a change in what the philosophy of the club is," he said. "Years ago it used to be bringing through young players and letting them flourish.

"If that means you struggle for a year or two, then that's how it was. We're talking about that again."

Two academy graduates – Sid Nelson and Aiden O'Brien – impressed in Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Brighton.

"Both were outstanding," Harris said. "Sid keeping a clean sheet in the first team is like a striker scoring his first goal.

"He'll remember that. He was outstanding against two very, very good and experienced centre forwards.

"I thought he did really well. Yes, he's going to get things wrong, of course he is, but senior players will get things wrong as well.

"Aiden was bright, lively and a goal threat. He's bubbly and he just plays. Where is the pressure for the young lads? Just enjoy it – we've not been winning games anyway."

      @crow191049: Marquis is a young striker who is only just coming through...there aren't many strikers under 21 being consistent in the Championship. He's scoring in League 1, which is where we are most likely to be next season. A prolific League 1 striker...what else would you want in that league? Would like to know what these higher horizons are...

        @jenks4: How about some encouragement for one of our promising youngsters. He hasn't looked great when hes played for us agreed, but clearly he has it in him. If we get relegated then he is the future for a club with no money in modern football.
        I'm also wondering how many league one goals you scored in your illustrious football career, or were you also "crap"?

      @crow191049: I said this many times before, Marquis was only ever used by KJ when the team had multiple injuries and he was never loaned out with any real intent to develop him. Also, the only time he got a short run in the team (3 games!!) he got injured and was out for months. He is now now performing at a decent level and is at an age where he will improve with every game he plays. It would be idiotic to let him go if he hasn't had the desire drained by his experiences at our club over the last 3-4 seasons.

      @crow191049I'm all for giving our young players a chance, but Marquis is just been another Braniff for me. He tries hard, has had loads of games over the years but just hasn’t been good enough. He's done well at Gillingham and we'll be in the same division next year, but we need to start setting our standards higher.

      To get promoted out of Division One you need some quality strikers – in the past we’ve had Harris, Morison, Sad’s, Moody and going back to the Eighties Fash and Lovell. I think we should see what we can get for him and put it towards investing in some real quality for a change.

            @block 28: In that case I'd offer him a derisory deal so we get something from Gillingham - everyone’s happy.

            We need a proper clear-out of all the deadwood in the summer and Marquis would near the top of my list to go. The new manager will have his work cut out building a team with the players that are left and hopefully bringing in better players for Division One.

    Hallelujah, the club have seen the light. We can't compete to buy players, hence all the old duffers we keep getting on loan, so we need to make our own players. We probably couldn't afford players of John, Fred and Jake's ability at the moment, so why let them leave for free? A lot of trust will be lost after IH telling them they can go, but hopefully Bomber can bring them back into the fold and for a reasonable price.

    When JM came along he looked like another Morison,strong and agressive and he played great with Morison too.For all the slaters of this guy,do you not remember when KJ,short of forwards, played him upfront on his own against The filthy hammers...WITH A HERNIA ? Do you not remember that ?! He ran his a*** off that day ,and I felt really sorry for him ,and then surprise,surprise ..he then had a double hernia and was out for ages.When he came back he looked half a foot shorter and a stone lighter and he'd lost his aggression(and yes ..liked to fall over a lot )...but I don't forget the day he was asked to do a job for our team,when he shouldn't have been playing ,and it screwed his career...he seems to be getting some of that old spirit...so good luck to him.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Fred, Sid, Aiden, Jake and possibly John all lining-up in the first team together next season add to that Archer in Goal and Jake Powell alongside Williams in the center of midfield, Paris out on one of the wings with Fred out on the other, Gregory with a season of Championship football experience under his belt and that is a cracking little squad! Just need to strengthen the LB position... Tony Craig? Ask Frampton to put that retirement from playing on hold for another year possibly? Get 'em both, perfect for the arduous physical test for a season in League One!

    No matter what you think of a player, booing them or slating them off, in most cases is only going to destroy they're confidence and performance so unless a player is not giving his all leave it out guys and girls they are all Millwall players. and when I hear things like manager has lost the dressing room, the players won't perform the the manager or he can't motivate the players my reply is they shouldn't need the manager to motivate them they should perform for the fans and they're own pride by always giving 100% then they will or should always get our the fans support. pray for the fighting spirit of the likes of Rah rah zigger zagger you know the rest. wasn't the most gifted of players but what he lacked in skill he made up in effort.

      @the verminhater: it's not about ambition and ideas, it's about budget, attracting players and the fact that some people on here thinking we should be challenging at the other end of the table is laughable....
      We are a small club, we don't get bodies through the gate and our budget is one of the smallest in the league (being boosted all the time by JB)
      We are one of the only clubs to also have never been in the Prem and therefore never received anything like the parachute payments that most teams in the Championship have had over the years...
      Concentrate on development of our own players, let them flourish, sell them on, reinvest, continue cycle and be self sufficient...
      We're never going to sign the "proven goal scorer" everyone keeps banging on about because we just can't afford or attract that kind of player.. End of

          @the verminhater: They are, but if Marquis proves himself at that level, why wouldn't we want him? He didn't play 10 games for either Torquay or Northampton, so not exactly long spells so this is the one time he has been properly given the chance to prove himself and he's doing it.

          As for Van Veen...I wouldn't count a Dutch second division striker as someone we missed out on...and hardly like he's bagging a load at Scunthorpe now is it? If you can suggest a truly prolific striker in the Championship/League one who is going to be willing to come to Millwall and will be affordable to us I would love to hear it...

    I'd love the club to make a decision and come out and just say "Harris is our manager going forward, we have a 3-5-? Year plan and we must concentrate on bringing through our own players as our budget just doesn't allow us to compete in the transfer market.. We would have a reasonable budget to allow us to add 2-3 decent senior pros each year to complement what were bringing through, instead of 5-6 journeymen every year.."

    I think MOST fans with half a brain would be happy with this, knowing club budget, size and place in the game..
    Then you'll still get "THEM" that want us to sign Ronaldo/Bale/Messi and will never be happy unless their moaning about something!!

    This for me is a no brainer, whether he wants to stay or not. Failure to do so means we have no say in any future transfer. His wages can't be that high so if he accepts we have a striker who is currently scoring goals in the league we're most likely to be playing in next year, if he declines we can negotiate a settlement & possibly add sell on clauses?
    I'm not saying he'll turn out to be Messi or Ronaldo but I'd love him to show the potential previous managers have seen in him for us next season. Obviously I'd rather we rebuild from the championship next season but I am also getting excited about our young prospects becoming a side able to gain experience & grow at a level that may suit their development a little better?
    Add the right players to the mix & hope our young lads can become a lions side that we can all get behind!

    With all due respect, Marquis will never be good enough. We have to be aiming higher than that if we want to get out of league one next season. Reading between the lines, it looks like we're going to struggle as there will be no money for a couple of new strikers. If only the board had seen what we all saw months ago-We might be safe by now instead of looking forward to the likes of Gillingham away. I'll say it again, Millwall's demise is down squarely with the board for not booting out Holloway in December. Now, it's far too late.

      I assume that the hiring of 'Hollowhead' was 'aiming high'.......In my opinion hiring Hollowhead was, and will be for hopefully more than a very long time, the single most damaging decision ever made on behalf of Millwall in my lifetime.

      Given that then maybe our 'aims' should be a bit more realistic....I have met John a few times, a really nice lad who wants nothing more than to do well for Millwall....I hope he gets a chance and I hope he succeeds for Millwall.
      If we had 11 JM's running round the pitch this year, how much worse off could we have been.....possibly a bit more pride

    I was never a fan big fan of marquis,but he has now beginning to find the back of the net,so if we are to be in div 1 next year who know's what could happen if he stayed with us.
    If he had not been with us and we needed a striker that we could afford ,then with his record since going to gills,i am sure people on here would say he is worth a punt (me included)
    I have seen a number of lower div players wanted by fan's on here,Pope ,Hanson and a few other's,but they have not been taken by bigger club's,so they cannot be that great.
    As denwescore said earlier, he went through the pain barrier with his hernia for us so showed he has Millwall at heart.
    Maybe just maybe if we do give him another contract,he could go down as THE ONE THAT NEARLY GOT AWAY.
    To be honest untill the denwescore post i did not realise about the hernia business,so perhaps just perhaps he deserves another chance.

The teams there are no push over as Bradford showed us when they played us off the park.

    Sorry but im getting sick and tired of this millwall through & through b******* part of the reason we are in this position is because we kept the likes of Forde and Dunn for a couple of seasons to long because they are Millwall through & through . Yes its great to have players that cares about the club and even better if they are Wall supporters but to be honest i would rather have the best players for the job . Personally i have my doubts about Marquis but if we do offer him another contract it should be because he is finding the back of the net not because he is a supporter and an average player .

    All this expectancy on him to come back here and crack it… He might not? Perhaps the only reason he's scoring for Gillingham (despite the fact its a league below) is that he doesn't like it here, and I wouldn't blame him, he always tried when thrown in at the deep end but we f*cked about with him too much in his youth.

      @Jim28: Jim, if Marquis is off to pikey land, you will be seeing him again next season.

    Considering the s**** we've brought in on loan, I would definitely get Marquis back ready for league one next season.
    However saying that (and if I were JM), I'd be a little worried at the uncertainty of our management situation. I'm sure Chopper would give him a fair crack of the whip, but there's no guarantee Chopper will be the manager next season.
    Either way, I hope he does well where ever he ends up.

    Yeah the reason he's scoring goals is because he's got players around him who can set him up who we got? We need quality !

      @millwalltel: Exactly, no pace or creativity in midfield, strikers need a constant supply of chances then they will put some away, ours are being starved of quality chances and have to snatch at the half chances the get so look poor. Some will say that other strikers will only need 1 or 2 chances and put them away but that kind of striker costs a lot of money and we are running on bargain bucket strikers. It's funny that when many of these ineffectual strikers leave here with the boos still ringing in their ears they then start scoring again for their new clubs.

        @Sealion: I've been saying that for years!!!! If you listen to opposition supporters they say the same too! Is it any wonder some of our players don't like playing at home when you got some muggy fans shouting all sorts at them and that's from our own supporters!! It's no wonder these players prefer playing away! It's like a breathe of fresh air to them!

        Unfortunately withe the likes of Andy ambler at our club we have no chance!

        Charlatan and palace do it! Let the kids in for a quid!! Fill the stadium up, they are going to buy things once inside! This will create a better atmosphere and with the right man in charge, mark war burton we might be able to galvanise the s*** we have and pull it together as a team! We need to take it back to basics! No fancy football just get the ball in the box and in the bk of the net! Prob be better in league 1 with a Paul moody type alongside Gregory that's where Hansen from Bradford would've come in handy. It's not rocket science! But you can kind of understand some of the players when they are subjected to vile filth from some of our moron fans! Then the same fans wonder why the player they just abused didn't turn it on, on the pitch!

    Marquis should be offered a contract. A wall supporter and youth, its in his blood. He has shown true Lions spirit in the past and whilst may not become a legend, I believe he has a lot to offer, particularly in div.1. which is where we're heading. The whole team needs changing , root and branch

    Problem is we as supporters of Millwall think we are all managers and get on the backs of players so they fear us more than the opposition so let's get of there backs and cheer them on proper support !!!

    I don't think he's better then Fred or Gregory and I would play them 2 up top next season so he will be coming back to sit on the bench and inform reckon he will enjoy that he wants to play football so I reckon it's a no go.

      @JordieLion: I think the Hoover and Williams will be off at the end of the season. Hope I'm wrong though.

        @REAL Supporter: The Hoover definitely will be going as we could not afford his high wages even if we stayed in the Championship, as for Williams I would like him to stay but he has hardly set the pitch alight with his mediocre performances in the last few months so not that bothered really.

          @Sealion: Yep, agree with you on both players. Seems like that a few on here think that The Hoover is staying. As for Williams, I really liked him when he joined but he doesn't seem bothered anymore. Just can't see that he'll hang around when the last nail has finally gone in. So, with that attitude, I'd rather he left.

    How far have we fallen?

    We seem to be promoting a player whom we lent out to lower leagues as some sort of messiah.

    We could trawl through the archives and publish endless press releases when the club have said 'we are now on a stable footing with a first class youth, scouting and infrastructure.

    Shortly afterwards when we fail, it's clear it runs like a pub side and blows money.

    JB they have taken you in my boy, clean out the stables!

      @wongo: Got that right. Whilst he's dragging out the board by the short and curlies he can also carry out the four or five buckets of s**** that are currently imitating Millwall players.

    who remembers the two old boys in the Muppet show that were sat up on the balcony and were forever moaning and criticizing the performers? Get my point? ;) I'm not saying we should applaud and cheer every performance regardless but there are some players out there that always do their best so for their sakes keep the sounds of disapproval off the terraces and air your views on here that way it wont affect the players on match day. Remember some of the players are young men, some of them not long left school and being constantly jeered at and booed can destroy a young mans confidence for a long time. I know it's hard cos we all get frustrated especially if it appears that a certain player isn't trying and you've paid big bucks to watch the match. Q What do we have to do get a fair deal from the man with the whistle?
