Full-time Frampton is a big influence, says Millwall manager

NEIL Harris has hailed Andy Frampton’s influence in the dressing room.

Frampton played for Millwall from 2007 to 2011 and went on to spells with Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon where he finished his playing career in the summer.

He re-joined the Lions last June as a development coach and recently took his place on the bench alongside manager Harris and his Dave Livermore.

Frampton played alongside Harris when Millwall last won promotion from League One in 2010, and the Lions boss believes the 36-year-old will be a valuable asset in inspiring the same spirit in the current group.

Harris said: “Framps is now full-time with us and is part of the coaching set-up with the first team.

“He adds something different to myself and Livers on the training ground and in the dressing room.

“He’s a man with vast experience at The Den. He’s a great character, a really good leader and really well respected within the dressing room.

“He brings another option, another set of eyes and ears. He brings great mental strength and is a strong voice in the dressing room.

“He has been bedding in since joining us. He had other commitments that had been ongoing, but they have been concluded now.”

    I'd take anyone on here or any supporter and put that person in the dressing room. That way, they could tell all and sundry that the attack needs a major overhaul-as it has for the last three years-and we need professional footballers to be able to play more than once a week if necessary without a dying swan routine.
    I'd give most of them a kick up the a*** as they leave the dressing room and run onto the pitch to repeat if they bottle it on saturday.

      @Pussycat William: The team needs to step out at The Den and not worry, just do what you are doing...the amount of shots we had on Saturday just shows that we are steadily improving, be it through playing a settled team or through the coaches...it's not like from one day to the next we are going to be in the premiership...we need to keep being the horrible lot at home and make The Den intimidating for the opposition and friendly for our players instead of the negativity that comes from the stands...

    @Vonhardshaft:

    I agree with you on that as long we intimidate the opposition and the more friendly to the players more and more will upon on it.

    It will come the sooner the better.

    someday somehow

            @I fear no foe: Holloway is and always has been a failure, an incompetent fool whose views are sought only by the gullible. His sole talent is to exploit the stupidity of those that do not see through his mindless chatter.

    It seems some people on here post the same s**t we will not sign anymore players. Maybe one more loanee is possible. What I cannot believe is fans who call themselves Millwall supporters but continue to shout abuse at the players. This must have some affect mentally on players knowing if they make one mistake they will be verbally abused. Whatever team NH decides to field if you are a true supporter get behind the team. I also appreciate we all have our ideas on who should be in the team and I agree on most of the postings as I was disappointed when we brought TC back to the club never been a good footballer and KJ outed him for that reason but even so I would not s*** him off . I think some of our supporters need to get behind the time at home rather than shouting abuse. My team would be Archer, Edwards(c) Nelson Beevers Martin (J)
    Martin(L) Powell Williams Ferguson
    O'brien
    Morison

    subs
    Forde
    Craig
    Thompson
    Gregory

    Another defeat on the cards because nothing has changed. Until we employ an exorcist to rid the Den of its 'demonic presence' then it'll be the same old story I'm afraid.
