Millwall bolster midfield ranks with Southampton's Chaplow

MILLWALL have bolstered their midfield ranks with the loan signing of Southampton's Richard Chaplow – the second new arrival at The Den in the last 24 hours.

Chaplow follows Crystal Palace forward Jermaine Easter in making the temporary move to the Lions and will go straight into the squad to face Charlton on Saturday.

Unlike Easter, Chaplow, who is a central midfielder by trade but can also play out wide, is eligible to feature in the FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic at Wembley next month.



The 28-year-old, who has also played for Burnley, West Brom and Preston in his career, will remain at Millwall until the end of the season.

Chaplow was also wanted by Sheffield Wednesday, Wolves and Huddersfield.

    IMO - this is more like it. He's always impressed me when I've seen him play. Was being touted for full England honours a few years back.

    Richard Chaplow joined Southampton on loan in October 2010 before making a more permanent move in the January 2011 transfer window. When he stepped out to replace Lee Barnard in 79th minute of the match at St Mary’s against Bournemouth on 2 October, he received a tremendous welcome from the home crowd. It was his second stint Saints, and he had made a huge impression on the local partisans in February 2006, when on loan from West Bromwich Albion. A distinctive figure in midfield, Richard has a non-stop, combative style that he combines with admirable gusto. He settled quickly and it was no surprise that he proved to be a very sound investment, playing a lively role in the Saints’ push for promotion. Richard began his career as a trainee with Burnley and later played for West Bromwich Albion before moving to Preston.
    This is what i have found looks like what we might need, pity dont feel the same about the easter bunny.

    Yeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhhh get in there
    Well done KJ and the boys very good signing
    Very very happy, he has only made 6 prem appearances for the saints this season but don't worry about that, he's 28 which is a perfect age he knows this division inside out, can play a bit too. Oh KJ you have made me very happy son. The addicts signed gower from Swansea yesterday which IMO is a good short term fix, so for us to get chaplow in now is a very good bit of business and perfect timing. COYL
    Wember...ley wember...ley we're the famous millwall and we're going to wember...ley
    More like it KJ.

    Good solid, quality signing for the Championship. I've seen plenty of him over the years and he is an absolute pain in the a*** when out wide.
    Good bit of business KJ who must have used the cup as a carrot.

    Should imagine that's the end of Racon and Tam.

      Yeh your probably right, ones finished at this level due to injury (Tam) and the other was a non starter (never really been given the chance).
      But this guy is only a loanee and where does that leave us when they go back.
      Hopefully it'll be good while it lasts.

    You'll love him
    He's an aggressive, progressive player who loves running at defenders
    He deserves to be playing every week
    He's not averse to the odd yellow card

      Looks like a step in the right direction.
      Seems that Jackett has seen enough and is polishing up the chainsaw.

        Just a thought,
        if Kenny manages to keep us up would he be known as Life Jackett?

    Who knows, maybe sign him in the summer, although I shouldn't think he will be cheap. Henry, Chaplow, Abdou and Taylor. Not bad. Trotter in the mix if he plays the way we know he can. Still need a striker though.

    That's what we needed another player with heart runs at defence and gets stuck in proper talent COYL .

    Good player at this level. Better than the midfielders we already have apart from henry and trotter (on a good day).
    Would get in to most championship sides no probs.

    Nice one KJ, a lot more like it. Thats made up for the horendous signing of German Eater! Unless he proves us wrong, Easter can do one back across London and Tyson can do one back to the midlands. Just burning money sitting on the bench. Money we could use to sign someone more permanent. As for Chaplow though, I'm eager to see how he does. Promising signing all round and should start against Charlton Saturday.

    thats amazing, i was watching some old footage of a few millwall games only last week , and one was against saints and chaplow was causing us plenty of problems,full of running very direct a real handful, and thought he never plays for em, wheres he gone, he'd be a good en to get hold of, and here we are getting him, i'v seen him several times and i think thats a really good signing
