JUSTIN Hoyte's permanent switch to Millwall has now gone through.

The deal was agreed when Hoyte first joined the Lions on loan in November and he moves from Middlesbrough on a free transfer.

Hoyte has signed an 18-month contract with the club.

The right back has made five appearances for Millwall to date.

Meanwhile, John Marquis has returned from his loan spell with Torquay and Nottingham Forest midfielder Guy Moussi is now back at his parent club.

      @stmarylion: Make you right, let Dunne have a go as he normally watches the game in isolation so he can get a goor view of whats happening without him getting in the way.

      @stmarylion: I cant believe that no one has mentioned me for manager I am availible and I have a better record than Harris with 5 wins to my name this season alone not to mention last season when I was at St Johnson, if I did get the chance I would do things different I would use the fittnes coach as the goalie and also position Danny Shittu on the line with him, so the worst result we could get would be a nil nil.

      So should be safe with a minimum of 46 points, I would get another half dozen centre mid players and a couple of front players who would be smaller than McDonald so we would have to play the ball on the ground, I would also appoint Alan Dunne as the coach who checks up on future opponents, but tell him we are now playing teams from Romania and Bulgaria, so with a bit of luck he might get lost out there and would not have to play him.

      JB & AA do you still have my number,I hope so if not try 118 118

    Bit like the Easter deal this one. Shouldn't we wait for the new man to pick and choose who he wants in??? Limited budget and from what I've seen Dunne is twice the player.

      @bigC: Exactly. Why the hell are we signing players when we have no manager. Who is making these decisions - Ambler or Berylson? Easter & Hoyte might be acceptable as loan players, but these sort of permanent signings are squad players at best at this level. Typical of our policy of the past few years - signings that no other clubs want.

    FFS! I have never doubted JB and the board before this year but this is silly. First we sign Easter without a manager after Kenny arranged the loan to perm deal, then we sign Hoyte without a manager after loan to perm arranged by Lomas. Twice we land a new manager with a signing from their small budget that they may not even want. I understand that we are only honoring our agreement but surely clubs understand that these deals were made by the previous manager and we should put them on hold until the new boss has decided if he needs them. Hoyte has been poor to put it nicely and i wouldn't have signed Easter either, he works his socks off but his goal record for the past few years is poor. What is going on in that boardroom???

    Why?? When everyone is saying Alan Dunne ( me also ) is better than Hoyte it maens he is crap, so why give him 18 month contract ? We have more important transfer issues with Forde, trotter etc than this useless c***!! You really amaze me at times MFC !

    I much prefer Dunne as rightback. Sounds like a strange bit of business that was done in November. Surprised it was completed though with Hoyte not being in the team surprised he wanted to stay. Less wriggle room for a new manager as well

      @Steve: Dont get the pro Alan Dunne stuff his first touch is a joke he is not very disiplined on the pitch, when Forde has the ball and looking for an out Dunne is not availible and he lets Forde know it by looking up the pitch urgo Forde has to punt the long high ball to and towering forward line to win.
      There are valid arguments about the decision to sign a player who is currently not in the starting squad and there not being an appointed full time manager, but with all this going on it still does not make Dunne a good player at this level, because he is not, good servant or not he has had his day as have about anoth 6 in the first eleven.
      We are not a very good prospect for any serious manager who has a good track record at this level , with the squad we have the lack of a decent transfere budget and once again the bad name we have had the linesmans flag incident did little to make the clubs reputation any better in helping to attract the right man, but lets see what AA comes up with someone out of left field and cheap I bet.

      @Steve: Dunne is a joke as a pro footballer. Been at millwall all his career because nobody else rates him. His body language on Wednesday said he wasn't interested and didn't care if we lost. (He is my pet hate if you didn't realise). Ok he put in a tackle or two but that's not enough nowadays. Give Hoyte a chance and he may come good.

    *Rubs eyes* Am I actually reading this? wtf Millwall, its not like he has displayed good consistent performances. Is this the best we can do?

    Another cock up from the board. You cant just sign someone for the sake of it. Will the new manager be thrilled by this signing? I think not.

    But Hoyte feel free to prove me wrong now you have bagged yourself a contract unless your just another wage thief.

    Millwall are like the UK in Europe, every mug comes over just to milk us and do F*** all

    I warned on here that Hoyte was s*** when he first arrived and was criticised for the comment.
    Well if an indisciplined under performing Dunne can keep him out of the side then it shows you what a gem we have landed. He has not given the slightest hint that he will be anything other than a wage thief.
    I would not have wanted him even if we were already in div 1.
    We have enough crap without signing more on long term contracts.

    The last few weeks I think that some people have overreacted about the problems in our squad, yesterday I think we were very unlucky not to get a point let down by some poor refereeing decisions, sloppy defending and our inability to take chances. Although I agree with people saying this signing is wrong or bizarre we have recently had a few players off the wage list; Moussi, Waghorn, Connolly and Henry. I don't understand people wanting certain players out of our club, e.g Bywater, he's only a sub how are we supposed to use just Forde? Shittu and Robbo, both seem to give all on the pitch even if their ability lets them down in this division. The only players I would like to see taken out our squad would be:
    Smith - we now have Dunne and Hoyte
    Wright - Too many CMs and bad attitude
    Keogh - Too many STs and bad attitude
    Plus I can also see Osborne possibly going to BCFC on permanent, Feeney going to BWFC as well as the players I just listed being reunited with Jackett as he liked and played all three of them. All of this would significantly reduce the wage budget. People need to get behind the new manager and the team and with a few wins in this tight division we'll be further up the table. COYL.

        @TheBermondseyBomber: Not really a bad attitude more that I don't think his head is focused on football compared to Robbo, Dunne and Abdou. I like Osborne his only league game this season was the Bournemouth one and that was hardly just his fault. I would have put him in at RB, he's strong and fast. Apparently he's on the verge of leaving permanently.

        @TheBermondseyBomber: Agree Berm, Osborne is still relatively young and will probably improve, but this joker is past his use by date and has not shown anything that resembles ability in fact in the games he has played he has been responsible for about 3 goal due to his errors.

    If we accept the fact that Dunney is our 1st choice right back , signing Hoyte is a real kick in the teeth for Jack Smith.
    Secondly , is there no Youth/Reserve right back (other than Smith) worthy of pushing the 1st team squad ?

      @Block 8: we have seen that Smith is limited defensively - a bit too slow - he does give us a little bit more composure on the ball - he can at least hit a 20yd pass somewhere near where it needs to go - ultimately we should be calling on Dunne and Smith when we have injuries and want to battle out a draw somewhere - neither are the solution , but I fear neither is Hoyte - the new manger has to address these problems as a priority - we need to get an out of favour/ slightly past it, experienced Prem full back and CD in or I don't see how the goals against will stop - we have too many average players - we need a smaller squad with more quality - yes we might get stretched with injuries and lose a few games (guess what , we are quite good at that already) , but at least when at full strength we could win games -

    I don't think we have seen enough of Hoyte to make a judgment. The whole back four has been dire for all the games he played in, so that wasn't a good time to assess him. If he isn't agreed to be better than Dunne by the end of the season I will be amazed. Dunne is a great Millwall professional, but he is a very limited player. He is slow and gets turned easily and gets too many cards.

      @conor: that is why the new manager is key - we need someone with contacts at bigger clubs - it can be done

    If he isn't good to enough play whilst on loan why on earth are we signing him? Why not wait until we have a manager ? This is Ambler again. He made signings before the he appointed the last manager. He thinks he should be the head coach. I say Ambler should go. He should have done the right thing when Lomas failed and resigned himself. I have no confidence that he will pick the right new manager. He probably wants to wait until end of Jan and revel in doing all the business in the window himself. Ambler is the biggest problem we have at Millwall.

      @Glasshalffull: Completely - you have to take a long term view - just like we shouldn't judge Hoyte too quickly, we should judge Ambler and his meddling over 3 years - our transfer/loan policy has been poorly managed - our best players , Townsend , Puncheon and Wood all came and went (inevitable of course) but replaced by 2nd rate players with bad attitudes on contracts that don't suit us - somebody is overseeing this decline - the hope is JB acts - he needs to realise what is being done with his and our money - our first season back up we had a shot at the play-offs - Swansea came down and outclassed us - fair enough - look where they have gone - we have seen AA preside over a slow and general deterioration of quality of player and morale in the club

    Can't see anything wrong in signing Hoyte we need a bigger squad and to be fair he has come into a weak back four. Dunne lacks passing ability and Robinson has disappointed. We need a good manager fast!

      @Peckhamlad: Whats wrong in signing Hoyte is that he is no better but worse than we already have, he seems like a rabbit caught in the headlights when he gets the ball and little boy lost when the opposition have it, he is far too lightweight.Both Dunne and Smith are better imo and I don't rate Dunne, preferably We should have stuck with Osborne.
      It didn't matter that he may have had a verbal agreement they should have packed him back.
      We have had a few verbal agreements that have been rescinded when it suited (Wood etc)

        @Sealion: If I were a wide lefty I'd be all over playing against Smith or Hoyte - they both have poor ball control, can't really make a clean tackle and are basically too quiet - I wouldnt be so thrilled at the prospect of coming up against Dunny because regardless of not being the quickest he's in your face all game, works harder than anyone and he can tackle!

          @TheBermondseyBomber: Agree Berm he is on you like a rash and aggressive but does get exposed a lot and relatively easy to get sent off.
          It just shows you where we are when we we still have to rely on Dunny.

        @Sealion: agree, in the main - I think there is always an opportunity for new players to improve though - you must remember he has come into a bad situation and perhaps can't be blamed for feeling apprehensive on the pitch - if at 100% confidence he might be a better bet than the other two who have loads and loads of opportunities - (I don't agree with the contract though - its just that we are stuck with it now and we have to do the best with what we have)
        this is the role of the new boss; get confidence back and show proper leadership - the biggest problem we have is that there is no real leadership at the moment on and off the pitch - who is our figure head , who do we identify with - who can pull others along with him - the new boss has to do this and more or we will go down

          @timchimes: The thing is Tim we get new players to improve the team and get better performances and thus results. We need the new players to make a quick impact, in our position we do not have the luxury of time, so if the performances are not there then it is a wasted signing. If we are building for the future then we can wait for them to hopefully perform but then I would have gone for a younger player.
          It is a tough call but with our limited funds we need to know that any prospective signing is going to make a significant difference. IMO

            @Sealion: I agree yes - it ain't easy - overall I don't think the Hoyte money is wise - however amongst what we have and any new money for the new boss, players have to walk on the pitch with confidence - not thinking they will get abuse from us or that after one bad performance they will be dropped - given a decent run Hoyte might prove some worth - as I always come back to, this is a team game and if they stick together results will come - we as fans are too quick to get on the back of individuals and then wonder why they don't want to play for us - how ;long ago were the Arsenal fans chanting for Wenger to go?? - all the nonsense on here about Hoyte being a wage thief etc - - he is highly likely to be a committed pro who wants to do the best for which ever club he plays for - give him a chance

    Anyone who comes into our back 4 at the moment is unlikely to make an impact, we are so slow and laboured and all that passing back to f orde for him to smash it upfield is frustrating.

    As for the signing of Hoyte this is a Joke.
    I'd love to think I'm wrong, but the Board are IMO deliberately acting as though they WANT Millwall down a division. Their dicision making is not professional very amaturish. JB's money seems to be squandered by AA, whom I think wants to be in sole charge of the club.
    The next Manager will be AA's puppet and the strings pulled tightly in.

    Nothing like 'try before you buy'. We all wondered why he didn't look bothered, it's because he already had his contract sewn up. Maybe he'll show what he's got if/when the new manager tightens up Britain's worst defence, but going on what we've seen so far he'll be Jordan Stewart II.

    As with managers, there is a merry-go-round of average, underachieving players, every so often jumping onto different clubs and taking their money for no discernable effort. Millwall seem to be providing a home for a lot of them right now. I'm hugely concerned by this signing and not just because Hoyte is no better than the players we already have. It tells me that there is little in the way of organization behind the scenes.

    It seems apparent now that Kenny Jackett had almost free reign over the football side of things, and the board didn't have a clue how to run that bit when he left. There is no direction to our transfer policy at the moment: no scouting personnel, no overall vision guiding our signings. The team is clearly in need of young talent: of yesterday's starting XI, only Beevers, Lowry and Malone were under 25 years old. Lowry hasn't been a regular starter this year, while none of those who came off the bench were under 25 either. Yet all of our signings have been 28+ (Lee Martin is 26-27, but he fits the description). All of them have drifted from club to club, never fulfilling any potential they are supposed to have. And we give them all nice, bumper contracts, they go through the motions, and the club ends up in trouble.

    Hoyte is not just a duff signing. He is a symptom of a deeper problem.

      @stanley: Nicely put Stan, I'm all for a bit of experience especially when the majority are young. Players like Claridge and Dublin made a huge difference with their skill and experience to get us promoted but it has gone the other way now, we have a bunch of experienced but non effectual journey men. We have no youth in the side, no one who can inject pace and scare opposing defenders. We are just a bunch of predictable plodders who huff and puff but can't blow the house down and we get stung week in week out by the pace of opposing players.
      Without any pace I cannot see how we can get out of the brown stuff who ever is in charge, everyone seems to have us dialled

        @Sealion: Cheers. Agree totally with your point about Claridge and Dublin. They were the right signings at the right time. We knew exactly what they were there for - to add specific skills and knowledge to a talented, but callow team.

        None of the most recent signings seem to have been made with any such purpose in mind. Just a bunch of players-for-hire with no fight in them. Us fans see what's needed. There's no pace anywhere in the team, there's no creativity in midfield... There doesn't seem to be anyone employed by Millwall who knows how to sort it, though.

        The club (mainly under Lomas, but also under Jackett) wasted a lot of money in 2013. If the new manager can get us organized at the back, I think we'll be just about better than the three currently below us. But last year's decisions (like signing Hoyte) have sent us backwards and will take a long time to undo.

    Why ohh why could we not of done this "loan now sign permanent when window opens" with decent players like Puncheon, Wood and Waghorn???

    Seems these clubs think "Millwall on the other line lets pull their pants down"

    Our board needs to be a bit more brutal when it comes to these things, its like me ordering a sofa buy now pay later.... if the sofa turns up with no springs ill send it back!!!

    Saturdays performance was poor and we can do better but i must say it was an improvement.... We had more chances than them and they did not out play us..... We need to iron out the few sloppy mistakes and get a big brutal but quick centre back..... Knowing us we will get Tony Adams or Repka on a 3 month loan....

    JB you need to up your game fella and we will be behind you 🙂

    It's Holloway's if he wants it, if not they'll get Warnock in until the end of the season. If the Hoyte deal was agreed when he signed on loan the club have to honour it, so the blame for that dubious bit of business lies squarely with Lomas.
    Hopefully the new manager - who I guess may have been consulted about it - will be able to get the best out of him. Middlesbrough paid Arsenal £3million for him six years ago so he can't be a complete mug and I don't think we've seen enough of him to write him off as deadwood.
    Signing him also increases the new managers options when it comes to wheeling and dealing in the January transfer window and boy do we need a decent bit of wheeling and dealing if we're going to have an chance of staying up!!!!

    Hoyte is no mug and should not be slagged off prematurely just after a few games, that is hardly welcoming to a new player who has at least put his faith in the club. I can remember Teddy Sheringhams first few matches and he was very poor and getting stick from the fans but he came good. Hoyte is not in the same class as Sheringham but has played premiership football and is an experienced defender. He makes a good squad player. it's not Justin Hoyte who should be the main concern but who the new manager will be and time is passing fast. I hope he is named by or over the weekend.

      @Peckhamlad: Pretty sure he'll be named in time for the Southend game - or very soon after. Clock's ticking now that the window's opened and by the end of January we will be starting to run out of games! Act in haste repent at leisure is all very well, but when you haven't got the time to be leisurely you have to have the balls to make a decision and then make it work.

    Question: Who is Man Utds chairman? Not owner, chairman. The good ones remain anonymous as they should do along with the backroom staff. All I ever hear and read are quotes from Andy Ambler seeking attention. It's not big or clever and signing second rate players whilst we have no manager is crazy and stinks of that tools ego. Not a fan at all.

Can not stand Warnock but do believe he would keep us up without having to commit to him for three years, would rather get him in than any other cast off player who would come to us...think he would have bigger impact
