Millwall boss: Ferguson's versatility and crossing ability vital

NEIL Harris says Shane Ferguson will give Millwall different options after signing him on loan from Newcastle United.

The Northern Ireland international met his new team-mates today and will travel with the squad to Shrewsbury for tomorrow’s league opener.

“We’re delighted to be getting Shane on board,” the Millwall boss told the club’s official website. “He is a player who has picked up vast experience in recent seasons playing in the Premier League, the Championship and at international level.”

“Shane is a great acquisition to the squad. He has natural left-footed ability and can provide terrific deliveries into the box.

“He is equally comfortable playing at left-back as he is on the left-wing so that kind of versatility will be very important to us, especially at a time when Joe Martin isn’t available.”

The signing of Ferguson also gives the Lions a new dimension at set-pieces:

    Really good signing this, also morro back, I hope they both start tomorrow, remember when the two Russians played for us? The first game was a sell out, the point I'm trying to make is good quality players and I'm sure the fans will flock back to the den.

      @seanmfc: @foxy: I remember that game...was all down hill after that. But I remember the game kicking off late and Millwall fans in the north stand and Port vale fans in the corner looking very nervous, separated with a thin line of equally nervous looking bobbies. Our Wembley appearances also prove that this club has massive support. Its why I dont understand the under investment in players. Pay out, and fans get excited and pack the stands. Plus, god forbid,we might be successful. But, I'll let that slide, as our kids are about to kick this leagues back doors in! COYL! Also - and this is a moan - Ollies sky sports weekend predictions has us losing 3-1... someone should tell him hes not our manager anymore.

        @Mullwall:
        So 1) that idiot's contract included no clause regarding employment within the sector 2) some buffoon is actually paying him to give his opinions 3) he has naff all sense of loyalty despite being paid an arm and a leg for naffing off and 4) his opinions are still garbage?

        No change there then.

    so assuming this guy starts for us tomorrows line up (whether we agree or not with NH selections)
    Forde (don't think he'll be dropped)
    Cummings / webster / craig / Fergie
    Martin / Upson / Williams / Fred
    Moro and Gregs

    Not my choice but probable line up.

      @brooker: when all players fit who will be replacing who?
      Will this lad keep LB or will he go into LM and J Martin go in LB
      If he goes up to LM who gets dropped L Martin or Fred? where does this put PCH in the mix?
      Fred getting 10 will that mean he is going to be used as more of an attacker with AOB out?

      discuss

        @brooker: I reckon Craig lb and nelson at centre half Fred righ fergie left Martin on bench mush... Having a score on 2-1 and £10 Morrison top scorer on the league .. Think it's all about attack for is this year with youngsters and experience at the back, anyway I'll take a 1-0 win to get us off the mark

    Thinking about it NH will probably go with the same back four as before Cummings, Webster, TC and
    Beevers at LB, they would have been training all week or so on that formation but Ferguson is still a good signing and would give us sub options if things are not going well today, great two signings this week really looking forward to the start
