Trialists to get more game time to impress Millwall bosses

MILLWALL are set take another look over the coming days at a couple of trialists currently at the club.

Henrik Breimyr made a positive impact in the second half at Bromley, and Neil Harris confirmed afterwards he could give him more game time this weekend.

The 21-year-old midfielder is a physically imposing player and showed an eagerness at Hayes Lane on Tuesday evening to get on the ball and drive forward from a deep position.

His younger brother Andreas is on the books at Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile with the club potentially on the lookout for another left-back, the performance of Harry Kyprianou in Millwall XI’s scoreless draw at Braintree last Monday night will have been of interest to Harris.

The Millwall boss watched the game from the stand with assistant Dave Livermore, academy boss Scott Fitzgerald and goalkeeping coach Kevin Pressman.

Kyprianou is an 18-year-old left-sided defender who came through the ranks at Watford and once made the first-team bench for an FA Cup tie at the age of 16.

He made 22 appearances for the Hornets’ U18 side in 2013-14 but couldn’t break into the first team.

He has been training with the club for a number of weeks and an all-action display on Monday won’t have harmed his chances of earning something more permanent with the Lions.

Elite development squad manager Justin Skinner takes his U21 side to Kingstonians next Tuesday night for another pre-season friendly in which Kyprianou could again play.

A number of the club’s signed youngsters will also be back for that game after their summer break, and Carlos Edwards could feature having not played a competitive game since last September.

    Bore off hear this every year don't remember us ever signing a trialist! Go out and spend some actual pound notes preferably on a striker!

          @Jim28:
          We did sign them. They both got a 1 year contract and we're both released at the end of the season.

            @82wall: giving players a 1 yr deal is like saying we're not sure your a good player or not..really gives them confidence in them selfs

    I would raver Harris use these friendly, as a fine tuning of his first team. Get the boys to know what plan A is . .then tactic for B and C... Every player should know what he is expected to do..

    The kids are good and it's good to give them a chance, but we do need an experienced lump (target man) up front. There is no quick fix however the board showing some intent to protect there investment would be good for example pay for a striker. This pre season is going the same way as the last few years with us the fans excited and ready to go but with a board that is not that interested.

    I will judge how we are after the first ten games and how many players are fit. I hope and pray that the kids will produce as bomber needs support and not hung out by JB and AA

    Plan A,B and C was Hanson, not surprised it fell through but not to have anybody else lined up like we were led to believe by the new Recruitment man - Mills... Gregory not exactly fit and too much just to rely on him to get us goals, going to need two good strikers but no even a peep of an interest?! But it's alright we just sign every other position and hope O'Brien, Marquis and Philpot come good it's the cheap safe option after all...

    What is plan A,B< or C ? Never heard of it, surely in football the team plays according to the opposition's strengths and weaknesses plus what formation they are using? Whatever the formation we need a decent striker. The sooner the better.

    Bring back the Hoff!! Just kidding but I know someone mentioned bringing Morison back or even getting Becchio? Both of those would be good and both know how to score goals in this league!

    @st28 No one will, This season will be another struggle because we have to many youngsters that we will need to rely on. They will not last a full season in this league they will burn themselves out & with no cover who will NH pick to replace them, Two free transfers & a couple of unknowns & no new striker(s), It don`t bode well!

      @blue thruandthru: Blue I see where you are coming from, but there are 2 options in this regard we get a young hungry striker from a bigger club who needs game time to develop or an older one coming back from injury who again needs match fitness.

      Coco said he had connections but he did not bring anyone worth the name of a Millwall type player, but surely Bomber must still have some connections at Forest and Cardiff who may be able to loan us someone.

      It looks very clear that there is no money left to use to strengthen the squad after we have paid out to get rid of the old management team and also paying some contracts up, so we need to just grin and bear it after all it is Millwall and we are all used to it by now.

    @blue thruandthru Don`t get me wrong, I know the youngsters will give there all for the club but these kids have not played enough 1st team football & therefore have no experience at this or any level of the game this is my worry, If we do struggle this season I will not point the finger at NH it will be the board for not giving him the funds to sign players that would have complimented what we already have.

    The same old rubbish everyday. Are we going to receive any good news this summer or what?. Its gonna be the same old story like last season and the season before that. No quality in the final 3rd. How long before they realize?. 2 tell the thruth i believe its much deeper then the management. Has JB finally run out of money? F knows what he's done with he's wonga because we haven't bought a decent player 4 years. Sorry 4 the rant&rave ppl.

      @<aproblem was we had a huge wage bill with a team of co cos old cronies now we have shipped him and them out at a huge cost there seems to be little left in the kitty. jb must make his mind up does he risk paying out for a few class players or will he be content to stay in this division and hope the youngsters can get us up to the championship some time in the future.
