Skinner looks at Millwall trialists in Kingstonian defeat

ELITE development squad manager Justin Skinner ran the rule over a group of trialists in the U21's defeat to Kingstonian.

Shawn McCoulsky, an 18-year-old striker who scored four goals in 17 games for Dulwich Hamlet last season is one who is looking to impress Skinner.

Christian Mbulu is another looking to earn a conntract with Millwall. The former Brentwood Town defender made 16 appearances for the Ryman Premier side in 2014-15.

Ben Thompson scored the young Lion’s only goal in Tuesday's 2-1 defeat in a team that included Jamie Philpot, Alfie Pavey and Jack Powell.

And Skinner also had a chance to look at former Watford left-back Harry Kyprianou again, who played for the U21s against Braintree Town two weeks ago.

On the defeat, Skinner told the club’s official site: "There were some good bits in there.

"We're fairly early on with our preparations for the season but it is still disappointing not to win.

"We made a lot of changes around the 60-minute mark, by which time we were dominating possession and looked like we could get a goal at any time.

"Those substitutions messed up a few partnerships throughout the team but they still only had a couple of shots, if not just the one chance in the second-half, and unfortunately for us it went in.

"We rallied and had another go with some of the youngsters on the pitch so it was all quite encouraging.

"There was nothing to get too disheartened about but at the same time we want to win every game. That's the only disappointment."

Meanwhile, there has been no update on other trialist Henry Breimyr.

    I went last night. The poor lad at left back Kyprianou, had a stinker. I thought Ben Thompson played well, wouldn't surprise me if we see him at some stage of the season.

      @billy88: i went to the game as well, thought powell was charlie big balls, philpot put in a shift chasing down lost causes, romeo has pace and carried the ball well, overall the trialists in particular the left back were no great shakes! oh and the snack bar was orrible!!

        @TONY BLOCK28: yes mate i agree. If he puts on a bit of muscle he would do alright. I liked the lad (number 17 i think) who replaced him, put himself about a bit.

    I've been to a number of these games in the past and I think they are a waste of time. Putting together a group of youngsters who don't know each other and expecting to find a potential signing is like panning for gold in the River Thames. The best place to look at them is in real competitive matches when they are working (or not working) to win.

      @Peckhamlad:
      Not really. If your on trial at a club you hope to sign for, you will run your nuts off weather it's a friendly not. And the fact is , if they are performing well during the league season, then we probably wouldn't be the only club looking, and when we are battling with another team for a signature, it doesn't usually end well for us.

    On a completely different matter - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/33623369 - anyone who says that JB is anything other than a God send to Millwall. This is the reality. We would struggle to find another buyer; we find it hard enough to attract sponsors; certainly not one who has our best interests at heart.
    Apart from day to day costs, the relative lack of players to sell on at a profit to balance the books in recent years plus the appointment of, reign of and subsequent sacking of the halfwit has cost us dearly. We have no choice but to play mainly the youngsters this season and hope for the best. Some of the names bandied about on this site are ridiculous as to who we should be buying. I have supported Millwall all of my life - football goes in cycles, we've been here before with our team - some might even say it's what supporting Millwall is about. Hopefully in this current crop we can find a few who will be good enough, either to play for Millwall or to be sold to bigger clubs to allow us to strengthen the team as a whole.
    In the meantime, it's a big thank you Mr Berylson from me.

      @Adsy77777: so he has squashed any interest, he still wants the money back that he has wasted though. He has kept us a float yes, but it's his fault for signing the cheques and employing the wrong staff.... Damn right he should not make a profit!! He has wasted a load of money and wants it back from the club.

      To be fair if he claimed 8million interest he would be being a bit audacious considering the last three seasons we have had.

      Tough I know because I do respect investors in football, but make no mistake if we made it to the prem or he managed to get that development deal around the den he would of creamed in millions.

        Seriously? Your off your head. Do you not realise he has shareholders? So therefore he is still going to have to pay them out of his own pocket. Say what you like about JB, The fact is that without him we'd have been in the s*** a long time ago. Most of us thought Holloway was a good signing, JB backed him just like he backed lomas. It's not his fault that they both turned out to be pony. Anyone having a pop at JB, clearly doesn't understand the facts and figures.

          @82wall: I completely understand, he is in a win win situation, whatever he puts in he gets back, let's see if he's got the balls to protect his investment and get us back up or if he leaves it on the youths shoulders.

          No I'm not off my head and to be fair we are discussing the current affairs of my football club. Yes he has shareholders and they I suspect have lost money due to the poor way our club has been run.

          Like I have stated before I respect chairmen who put their money where their mouth is as people like me and you can't afford to fund a club.

          Let's see if we get what we need or if we end up struggling, like what your have said before our youth players might not be able to cope and we need to score goals to get out of this league.

          Every penny he has spent, the clubs has to pay back or it will mean he holds a bigger share in the company and the shareholders shares will devalue to make up for this.

          @82wall: also you seem to know less than me, he delisted the shares of Millwall in 2011 which devalued shares and buggered the small shareholders and fans who were shareholders... This was all a ploy to make massive money in redevelopment of the area. Does he care about shareholders? From what happened in 2011 it seems not.

          Read up on it!!! And grow up with your offensive pops and sarky comments. We are discussing things, calling people "drips or clueless" over the Internet is not Millwall at all. I would happily have a pint with you before the game at Arrys Bar one day rather than acting all big and palace over the net.

            I'm on about where he gets the money from. He loans Millwall fc money from another company, yes? That company, will have shareholders. They will still be expecting their return. Who do you think will have to pay it Millwall don't? JB.

            And so would I (regarding the pint). This site just winds me up. Don't know why I read the comments bit to be honest, there's so many people on here who jump on the bandwagon and s*** of things/people/the club, without any real reason or facts to base their 'argument' on. In this instance, I understand people are annoyed that the season is 2/3 weeks away and we are a few players short. But its not because the money isn't there. I love bomber, but I wish he'd come out and explain that he has money available to him, becuause believe me, he does. There's been 2 players recently in williams and tom Pope who we could of signed 100%, bomber changed his mind and went for Hanson. The money is there. Harris just wants a certain type of player and strongly believes that our youth can do a job. I don't see why people are having a pop at Berylson all of a sudden.

            Obviously not. Anyone who's company can afford to lose 8 million, I have little sympathy for when it comes to finances as they are clearly all rich enough to wipe their mouths and move on. The point im making is that just because JB wrote off the debt, doesn't mean his shareholders have. They will still be expecting, and getting their money and it will come straight out of JB's pocket. The bloke has spent millions on us. I think the only thing people can complain about is the fact he never gave jackett enough money. For example, We could of signed puncheon and wood before they started scoring, but JB not Jackett, wanted to see if they were value for money. Now they are both well and truly out of our price range and we are in league 1, so yes there has been mistakes. But the bloke cares, he's invested millions and deserves abit more respect from some of the half wits on here. There's been worse chairman, and there will be worse in the future.

      @Adsy77777: that's an interesting article about what JBs done. Personally, I do take a slight cynical view on the matter. Writing debt off certainly makes it a more sellable club in the future.

      I think when you look at JB as a chairman compared to former chairmen of the club then he's done a fine job. Certainly the appointment of jackett, disputing charges made by the FA regarding the league cup game against the spammers in 2009 and paying off the debt consistently.

      However, he hasn't helped himself in other areas. Not being competitive in the transfer market, the appointment of lomas and holloway, allowing funds to be wasted on short term transfers, putting too much time and effort in the regen and the worst one in my opinion, downgrading the acadamy back in 2007 to save costs.

      As generous as he has been with funding the club and covering the losses that continually seem high every year. He hasn't seemed to have put any investment of any kind into the long term future of the club. Being a small London club is extremely hard going and needs to be shrewd in it's business and marketing approach. The club doesn't do enough in terms of attracting more people through the door. During the promotion season I remember buying tickets to watch us play tranmere. I still receive emails from them even now. I've bought countless tickets at Millwall as well having a season ticket in the past and yet I hear sweet FA from the club about offers, promotions etc.

      Another thing I remember is seeing charlton athletic shirts in a sports shop in Australia, what are the chances that the club never have thought of pushing the the shirts to overseas companies.

      JB maybe a man with money but in terms of helping produce more income for the club, it's been none existent.

      I'm certainly grateful we have a chairman who isn't like a massimo cellino, a Vincent tan, or the venkys but but other than a promotion, his legacy has hardly been legendary.

    What a load of nonsense Adsy....its like telling the misses that you are not going to charge her interest on the housekeeping....or telling the kids you wont charge them interest on their pocket money. A businessman shifts money from one of his companys to another probably a tax break for the first company ...how long has he plundered the club for interest payments before his 'noble' gesture....what has it been spent on, how does he explain the loss on the lending companys money...what was the 8 mill spent on how many years investment is that....my corner shop invests more on a yearly basis on new fridges......most naieve post I have ever seen ....are you a Berylson plant

        Ahhh 82 the innocence of Babes, I am not sure what I am responding to because your position is unclear, you do realise that if berylson has shifted money from one company to another he has not actually invested anything...losses by the parent company will be off set by lower profit margins and subsequent tax breaks.
        But enough of that the real docile amongst us have watched Kenny Jackett save us from almost extinction, get us to the championship without any major funding...as the lack of funding continued KJ had to leave as he could do no more....without KJ skill and undoubted class we have quickly plummetedas no one who came after him had anywhere near his ability. JB now has us in freefall.
        The berylson apologists on here are forever quoting 40 million (no real evidence of it) Wikipediia estimates it at 16 million then we learn it is all loans off other companies and probably bank loans that we are still probably servicing.. he doseent seem to have put a lot in at all 16 mill over 8 years in the great scheme of things and it wernt even his readies....now the ground development thing aint happening he has not spent a penny ...not even league one ,money.
        Last year us and brentford were in polar position they bought Andy Gray they have a chairman who truly cares....Andy gray did not get them to the play offs but the attitude at the club did....and our attitude from the top down got us where we are...we now have a bunch of eager kids and a rookie manager...and a broken big screen. Good job for us that we have staunch allies like you keeping an eye on things

And have very short memories. We have an owner who actually cares, and who actually gives a s***. Too many of you just jump on the bandwagon without having a clue about what happens or what has happened over the years at Millwall fc.

        now you are getting to the point 82....since the council made that decision, Millwalls fortunes have nose dived, no players, no wages, no transfer fees no hope whatsoever of getting out of league one except via league 2....and the broken big screen still pysses me off.
        If 82 is a clue as to your date of birth .....I have been following Millwall home and away since before you were born...I have seen some bad days I was in hungay, luton cold tuesday nights in oxford in division three, all 60 of us getting run in middlesboro in an end of season no game I have known relegation and bad beats...since the days of gordon jago and Peter Anderson, and the great days of John Docherty and george Graham....but ....I have never known Millwall to be in as bad a position as it is today ....life has taught me that the rot starts from the top...the position we are in aint the tea ladys fault, or the programme sellers, or the fans, or last seasons loan players fault , not even the last two hapless managers (i actually nearly feel sorry for Lomas)
        The buck, 82, stops at berylsons desk ....Millwall can not move forward while he is at the club....my guess is he is engineering his exit strategy, and as I have said before I hope we are still in the league when he goes.
        History will show 82, if you were not part of the solution you were part of the problem ...what do you gain by blindly championing him like a lemmin

          @tonytowneronthewing: What you don't seem to realise is without JB we might not still be here. He has been left out of any regeneration plans for the forseeable future. His allegiance to Millwall has cost him a fortune. Your argument doesn't make sense on any level. It's a funny way of engineering an exit strategy, writing off millions!!!! Surely you'd just put the club up for sale and try to negotiate even a reduced debt settlement for the new owner? And who is going to buy us? Like I've said, because of our reputation, we struggle to even find sponsors The majority of our losses are down to the costs of running a football team these days and are mirrored up and down the country. Unless you attract decent gates regularly, unless you reach the promised land of the Premiership, most teams run at a loss. IMO we should be very grateful for Mr Berylson's continued patronage. I'll put your last comment right back at you; if Berylson throws in the towel, you were part of the problem. Don't bite the hand that feeds you!

          Fair play to you. You was probably amongst my old man, uncles and grandad back in the day. I respect that and do not doubt you love this club as much as every other supporter. But I cannot see where you(and a few others) are coming from at all. He's said himself he's had offers for the club, but didn't sell because he didn't feel the prospective owners had the clubs best interests at heart. He could of sold up and took his losses a long time ago. He received 1 of those offers even after he knew he had lost out on the regeneration project, so if he wasn't in it because he has love for Millwall fc, he could of took a few million, and moved on. He has consistently pumped money in, knowing he will never see it again unless we reach the premier league. He was terribly advised by his board members regarding the lomas appointment. But then gave him a bigger budget than he ever gave KJ and the ginger West Ham C*unt spunked it up the wall on s***. Then he appointed Holloway and it would be fair to say most of us thought he was a good choice. He then backed holloway with more money than he gave lomas, and got his fingers burnt big time because in the end he had to pay holloway over a million to f*uck off and another load of money paying off contracts. People are forgetting we operate at a loss. JB is the person who covers these losses each month and each year. People expecting him to spend millions on transfer fees need to realise that our gate receipts, merchandise sales, food/drink sales, programme sales, etc etc are p*** poor and until the day something drastically changes and we are pulling in 15,000 every week, we will not be spending big money on players.

    why do you and the other Berylson fans keep banging on abou this so called fortune please explain to me this 40 million that keeps getting thrown around...if he had any football business acumen should he not have done things slightly differently since the Swindon Game...can you not think of one thing you would have done differently ...how about some proper investment given to Kenny...you need to smell the coffee mate we are heading to league 2

      @tonytowneronthewing:
      Totally agree and I said it earlier, he should of backed KJ with more funds and that was his real big mistake because KJ is proving that he is one of the best managers around. And to think some people were glad he left! But we all make mistakes, and since then he's been unfortunate in the way he's had his money spent. As for the 40 million, it's now over 50, and pushing 15 million in the last 18 months. If I can find the articles I'll post a link.

    I would not put too much countenance in any articles you may read 82....dont forget his accountants and PR people will put whatever spin suits their purpose...allegedly he shifts funds from one company to another...you just need to take in whats going on around the club ....the worst it has been in my memory, all the scapegoats have gone now the only constant is Berylson, sooner or later you got to realise he is no good for the club.
    You say we have poor income ...but what are we spending it on how do clubs from a lower league on less gates attract players that we cant...I would still love an explanation of the now over 50 million he has spent...tell me what on ...his 50 million plus all the revenue and we are in the sh1t we are in.
    The only comfort is that he is angling for a way out....writing off interest so the club may be sold etc.....do you really believe what you said he was gonna sell but did not fancy the intentions of the new owners ...come on, seriously.
    It boils down to this ....if he never spent this fabled 50 million ...then his bubble is burst we should be very wary

    If he did spend it he has steered us to our present position while doing it....be even more wary

      @tonytowneronthewing: Have you ever spoken to John Berylson? If you had you will see that Millwall is a passion now for him. Like I've said before, your conspiracy theory makes absolutely no sense on a business level and few can doubt his business acumen. On a footballing level, he has financially supported an ailing club. Can't you remember the mess we were in before? We were changing chairmen more often than olly changed his team. I agree with you on one point; I would have loved to have seen KJ get the financial backing that wurzel got. Yes JB has made mistakes, I'm not arguing that, olly being the worst of them, I also remember that he was a very popular choice with most supporters; it was a very costly mistake. Where I will defend my argument is that a) without his backing we would be fckued and b) he has always acted in what he thinks are the best interests of the club. We have never had a sugar daddy at Millwall, and probably never will. We are not a club who can go out and spend fortunes on players, but we never have been. Good Millwall teams in the past have been made up of astute signings and home grown players. I know the astute signings have been in short supply in recent times, as have the home grown players but it seems as if at least a decent crop of youngsters are coming through. That might take time, in the meantime we will continue to lose money and JB will, hopefully, continue to absorb those losses.

        Adsy,
        'There is none so blind as those who will not see'

        To address some of your points....I have never spoken to JB and have no desire to.....the only time I heard any passion from him was when the couincil gave him a knock back on redevelopment.

        I do not believe that we would not exist if it were not for BJ, you say we would be fkucked with out him, how much worse does it have to get.....somewhere along the line I predict we will go into administration and league 2 is almost a certainty....Harris does not have the knowledge or ability to do anything with the present set up, he has almost certainly sacrificed any chance he had of a decent managerial carreer for the cause

        We cannot go forward under Berylson, what miraculous turn of events do you predict that will turn our fortunes round....Marquis banging in 35 this year perhaps....europa league via the FA cup....we will do well to finish in the top half this season.
        Perhaps the best thing to happen in the long term is another relegation get rid of Berylson and have someone come in and rebuild the club from a more realistic financial footing. stop all this nonsence about him being a saviour because he has pumped 50 million into the club...he is the general, he leads the troops....if he has spent 50 million that alone should convict him of sabotage

          @tonytowneronthewing: I think we are going to have to agree to disagree on this. Many chairman over the years at many clubs have lost small and large fortunes for the privilege of being generally vilified by supporters.
