Millwall to identify alternatives after missing out on duo

NEIL Harris has spoken about missing out on signing Bradford City striker James Hanson.

The 27-year-old was the subject of three bids from Millwall but his current boss Phil Parkinson has convinced him to stay with the Bantams.

Harris also admitted the Lions’ bid to lure Alfie Mawson to The Den was unlikely to succeed.

“He’s the type of player we are after,” Harris said of the Bradford target man. “We obviously enquired about his availability and cost and they’ve come back and said at the moment he’s not for sale.

“So that’s the end of it.

“We spoke to Alfie. He had a lot of clubs to speak to and we’ve ruled that out now.

“I’ve said all along that centre-half and centre-forward are positions that we’re looking at.”

Harris also appeared to rule out signing a central midfielder after there were rumours about a possible move for Southend United’s Michael Timlin, who is a former teammate of the Millwall boss.

“We’ve already got four central midfielders so to have four centre-halves and four centre-forwards would be the ideal balance.

“We’re not going to rush. We’ve already got real quality in the squad. We showed that at the end of last season and the players will show it at the start of this season.

“I think what’s important is that the players here and the young ones coming through get the opportunity before we bring in other players.

“Additions will come in as and when the right ones become available and when we identify the players that we want.”

    Mawson is going to Birmingham, apparently.
    By the way, did anyone notice Forde in the training pictures yesterday? I couldn't see him.

      Appreciate I am gonna get slagged but does not make what I am saying false.
      The club has not changed course and continues on its downward spiral. People rally behind Harris, I wish him the best but he has no credentials, yes hes a club legend ....would anyone welcome his appointment if he was a club legend for Partick Thistle...his interim period between Lomas and hollowhead was poor and conjecture all you like about what ifs, but we did get relegated.
      People rave about the youth....what are we supposed to do with them, sack them?....truth is without the young players we probably could not field a team.

      I have been banging on for the last year but while Berylson remains we are more likely to get in the conference than back to the championship...we cant attract any players , Harris and the youth a cheap option....Berylsons dream of developing around the ground has been scuppered, he cares not a jot for the club.
      It Is a very perilous time for Millwall, .....scratch a little below the commendable fans optimism for the new year and there should be big red flags.....another season or two of dross, another relegation and we are heading for Hackney Marshes. Dennis Wise saw it years ago ....he wanted to push on but Theo never had his heart in it .....Kenny the same...he will have wolves in the prem in a season or two ...it could have been us but Berylson had no interest in following up, he has less now that his development plans fell through. I want Millwall to win the champions league as much as the next man.....but after 40 yrs support I recognise the danger signs.....the worst I have seen it.....Over the next season or two blind optimism is not the best love a man can show for his club.....sorry to p*** on your parade

        @tonytowneronthewing: I like what I see with Bomber but you are probably right,he wont get the backing from the board and thats why we missed out on the two players cause we didnt offer the valuation or the wages. We always offer well below and wonder why we did not get the player but what does anyone expect. Millwall do not spend money. We did once,£800,000 on paul goddard which remains our biggest spend on a player and how long ago was that.

        @tonytowneronthewing: Sound comments mate my thoughts are the same, there has been no ambition from the board since the club last went into the old first division, even then instead of investing in good players Millwall were relegated. They can appoint any manager they wish but without giving him the cash needed to buy a few decent players it is a hopeless task. The appointment of NH as manager is a sop to the supporters, a con trick because they know the fans will not give him the stick that Hollowbrains got because he is viewed as "a legend". Good luck to Neil he is Millwall through and through but are the board? Give him some money to work with.

        @tonytowneronthewing: harsh but true.... I hope Harris does well and I think he might.... But the chairman did not appoint Harris because he has faith, it was a typical Newcastle/Keegan or Liverpool/Dagliesh. If in doubt or before fans get the ump appoint a legendary ex player....

        But I will add I'm very positive about next season, f*** the board f*** what league we are in... I'll still go every week. Milllllllll

          that would almost be true except....Berylson is a rich American Businessman who ivested in the club to secure the opportunity to make maga bucks by developing the area around the ground. When the council scuppered his plans his desire to keep the football club bouyant has wained....it never was his priority.
          If the council had told him to carry on and build a couple of tower block a hotel and a shopping mall do you think he would have had trouble finding the finance...I doubt it.....check back on NAD the most vocal and animated he ever was came after the councils decision.
          Lets have it right, we pay crap wages, no transfer fees, wont even fix the scoreboard.....in the great scheme of things it is a minimal investment needed to shore up an operating loss of very little. And the irony is that if he had invested properly after Kenny got the promotion, we may have moved forward and he would have got a return on his investment, or at least balanced the books. Maybe he hangs about now hoping for a council u turn, it would make sense as long as he dosent have to invest in the club ....it would appear he is not going to invest.
          You have to ask if there was an ulterior motive....there must have been ....otherwise he is a very poor buisness man....a fact not coroborated by his personal wealth. Regretably it does not matter what gem of a youth player we produce, what optionless manager, or players we attract, what plucky away day victory we produce against Rochdale or the likes, the club is in at best limbo till Berylson goes.

      @lucusmckeus: We won't sign anybody in January's transfer window because the club is under the FFP Transfer Embargo. That is why it's ever more important to get the business and transfers right asap and bring those quality players in or we wont have what is needed to provide a push in the second half of season regardless of where we may find ourselves in the League at that point... However unsure if it affects us bringing in Loans in Jan?

    Ah well, no point moaning about it! Thats fair enough, we are used to missing out on players. At the end of the day, we dust down and crack on! Every faith in the squad NH is building! Its important to see where the holes are and fill them but to be honest I was getting a little bit bored with the whole Hanson/Mawson will they won't they stories! Its them that have lost out and will no doubt feel the wrath when they play at the den next season and wish they had signed!

    Not to upset about Hanson to be honest eleven goals is what we have already in Gregory more or less so was always going to be the big target man up front, for an alternative style of play bit like the Hoff and that never got us anywhere. This year it seems to me we will have pace with Fred, Cowen-Hall, Philpot and Gregory is the fox in the box. and while it is some times good to have a big lump up front I think I would rather go with speed and craft. O'Brien looks to be a bit of a battler and we know Marquis is. So half a million saved and we move on.

We will just have to delude ourselves that every thing is hunky dory just like last season! It will be a terrible shame if we don't recruit the quality players that could help nuture the young talent we have.

    same with Mawson - bigger wages elsewhere - simple - happens everywhere - that is the skill , getting good quality cheap - know your players - I agree where are all the other targets - there never was any

The people on here need to remember we are in League 1, not the Prem, and we are not exactly a 'go to' club. I'm sure NH does have alternative targets, but why announce them, we are up against all other clubs. Also, who is this proven striker we think we can get who is gonna score 20+ goals a year.

      @JONO: Absolutely, this is what a smaller minority of Bradford fans were saying, they wanted to get shot of Hanson because the moment he came on it was Hoofball Time. You could say that's what it takes to get out of league one but I don't recall the likes of Norwich or Southampton using those play tactics to win games and if we want to have a style of attractive passing attacking football running throughout the club from youth to senior then Hoofball doesn't have a place. By the time we get back to the Champ we would then need to try and revert back to passing and pace and we will struggle to adapt to that in a higher tougher league. Start now and carry on..

        Bexley lion norwich had grant holt smashing into everyone at the time don't get more target man then him, also Chris Martin from Derby was playing for them at the time not as big as he is now, Southampton had Rickie lambert and Pardew in charge .

            @JONO: as I said Akinde had rejected us before when he played for ebbs fleet, plus he has struggled to score in league 2 and league 1.
            Grant holt was not a deadly finisher, nor did run channels but was a clever target man with strengh and players that played off him that made him a good player, in comparison to Hanson, holt was playing for shrewsbury town when Norwich signed him, Nottingham forest could not get rid of him fast enough, you have to start somewhere in football, take chances at different clubs. And players like Steve Morison for example was worse then the strikers we have at the club now when he joined but he came good, the first name you would look for.
            How many goals did Rickie lambert in his career that were set plays ? Won by him being a good target man drawing a foul ?
            You got to look what players bring to a team
            As for Hanson we are not signing him now but what I will say is how many goals did he make / apart of in the Bradford team ? Must of been a part of at least 20 more goals in there season. Plus 11 for himself ???

    If the club never wasted money on going to Portugal for a jolly then they could buy more expensive players. Cut down on half time oranges only have 2 kits, get lots of advertising on the ground so the train commuters can see them. Reduce the price of the crap beer at the club extend Harry's Bar and
    have big helium Millwall balloons flying from the top of the stand. City airport should not be a prob planes will miss them. Collection buckets before during and after the game for a new scoreboard and free zampa lions to all junior supporters whose parents buy a programme. Don't go to Portugal get the squad hiking over the Brecon Becons and drum up some Welsh support not a Welshman in the squad they are British. I think Wall need no further than to sign the German Ladies Centre forward now that would be a coup and bring in all the female support. Do you think there is a place for me as PR on the board. Anyway season soon starts England ladies to win World cup and Murray to get knocked out first round of Wimbledon - no Cliff Richard this year Magic there is a god.

    what is worrying is what happens if we get thumped 3 or 4 times early season. These youngsters are being fed on "you are our future" Their heads are in the clouds at present. Hope they can handle the pressure especially if it does go pear shaped and we start loaning old has beens again....i just hope we dont start reading things like we dominated the game just didnt take our chances. 15 shots on target 0 goals. Or we will turn this around. getting the first goal was pivital.
    I really hope this doesnt happen and im sure it wont IF WE GET A GOAL SCORER.

    Hate to say it but when NH was appointed i said then that as a legend to Wall fans the board was banking on his status to up season tickets sales,and that happened , also said now more than twice before this is Wall and the pattern over 50 years of following them has not changed.
    Its talk it up not back it up ive not renewed my season ticket il give then 12 games to show there potential i can always get a 1/2 season ticket until there is positive backing from the board we will take 3 to 4 years in this league dont be sucked into the hype and as far as the wage thief which have left the club,the board are no different taking our money and not backing NH
    So which is worse ??.

    i would have Morrison back if he was available ! would score goals at this level, and would help the youngsters!

    I was surprised that NH even thought of bringing these two in, they are not the best of players and personally I am pleased the deal is not happening. We do not want another great lump of a target man up front, that means long lobs from midflied and the back again. Old fashioned and out of date, lets have a speedy forward or two and a creative midfield, good accurate passing and entertaining to watch.
    As many have said above some welcome investment from the board would help matters.

      @LETEMCOME:

      Indeed, unreal.
      One thing though, thanks for pointing out his correct name.
      Since the days of his "In Olly We Trust" drivelling, for some reason
      I was reading his name as Mekon Giver.

    I don't say much,i read what everyone has said,All this Millwall will never change or Millwall are still not spending money.I love Millwall I always will we have never had a big budget but we have had youngest who turn into players that everyone wants,I could write a list of players that have been here and gone on to bigger things,if we go up or stay in this league or if we go down I WILL STILL love Millwall some on keep going on we never buy big or if this player does not sign or if we sign this over rated player or if we sign players that have played here before can they still do the bizz.
    Please lets just get behind Bomber and lets see what he can do instead of he will not sign the players YOU want or he will not know what he is doing.
    Or we can all go home and play football manager and do a better job,Neil I trust and I have faith in what does this is his first manager roll and I will be at the den next season and every season after.So dislike if you want I don't care

      I kinda like some of your post, but please...
      No "I trust Neil" nonsense, it reminds me to much of all the girls
      coming on NAD last season singing "In Olly we Trust".
      More embarrassing than the Trainspotters down the road...lol...

        @lowdown: Why you singling out girls that support our club....A fan is a fan, I get tired of hearing people referred to as girls as if it's a criticism. I know that you think your comment was aimed at men by the way, just a personal bugbear I have when I hear men calling men 'girls' meaning it to be an insult.

    We will see how good NH is when he comes to pick his team for the first match.

    ARCHER OR FORDE

    My bet is FORDE because NH won't have the bottle of have him on the bench - to much of an influence.

    Lots of likes I would imagine for this one - MEKONG RIVER SPEAK WITH STRAIGHT TONGUE.

    PS England ladies to win World cup and red card in USA and Germany match cert.
    ROD FEDRER TO WIN WIMBLEDON.

    you know what, I think who ever we bring in, will have to adapt to those already here and not adapt the team around those they may bring in.

    What I haven't seen is Philpot in the names mentioned so much this preseason, a first touch in a professional career match and scores, does that speak louder than words. We are going to be a young squad next year which people may have their concerns about, but lets not forget these guys know each other inside out playing week in week out, they will gain confidence playing next year as I know we will all get behind them.

    anyone disagree with this comment just think when you are at work - you got some one s*** above you you aint going to perform but someone who you respect you will give 110% all day long. That is why Chopper has the upper hand!

    to be perfectly honest i would rather have tony craig than mawson any day of the week for the experince that craig has and him previously being at millwall would really help. also i think that hanson is a blessing not signing it would change the way we play completely to a massive punt up the field which is a way of football which we didnt play last year under harris

    I know we're obviously trying to look at signing younger players, but given that we need some experience up front, I think we should take a look at Izale McLeod from Crawley! Scored 19 in league one last season, only 30 so not too old and i'm sure we're a bigger club than Crawley at a higher level, who can pay him a bit more! Would be cheap, is proven in this league and isn't so old that he's not worth signing!

    Think we should take a look at Izale McLeod from Crawley! May be 30 years old but scored 19 goals in League one last season and is an experienced guy at this level! Think he would certainly do a job as a 15 goal a season striker, then if Gregory can get 15/20 and others chip in with 5 or so each we could be looking at a really quite potent offense!

    Don't why we are talking about McLeod. Gregory is hungrier & better than him.

    Has Byron Webster found his way back from Yeovil? Hollowhead ruined his confidence. Who knows, he may come good if given the chance?

      @beethoven5: i rate him personally, his confidence was rock bottom when he left us for Yeovil, Bomber should work on the lad, he has the attributes to be a very good player at this level.
