Holloway will consider loan signings if results don't improve

MILLWALL'S level of activity in the emergency loan market will depend on their results over the coming weeks, according to boss Ian Holloway.

Holloway has discussed possible targets with head of recruitment Mick Harford and says he is constantly keeping tabs on who might be available on a short-term deal.

But the Lions manager insists he has been pleased with his existing squad, and will only draft in reinforcements if performance levels drop.

"We're always looking to improve and strengthen the squad if we can but I'm very pleased with the response I'm getting from everybody," Holloway said.

"Basically it is down to the fitness levels of everybody, really. We have addressed that on the training ground but I might need one or two bits and pieces if we don't pick up.

"But I'm seeing fantastic sprouts of recovery, personally.

"I had a good chat with Mick Harford last Thursday and I'll be looking at things all the time. If we don't get any results in the next few weeks, I'll have to do something."

    Played well at the weekend. But we do need a quality winger.

    If morison is to continue to play wide on the right then we need a big lump in the middle to get on the end of his crosses,he had a really good game playing wide against bolton,but with three small forward,s in jackson ,mcdonald ,campbell it was easy for their big defenders to clear,also we need another half decent CB ,because injuries or bans have left us exposed.

      @jim1222:
      Morison on the right is the way forward IMHO
      he still has the pace and the tricks to beat most defenders in this division....on a consistent basis
      the rest of the forwards are small...but they do not need to feed off of balls in the air, they are cute enough and experienced enough to get in amongst big defenders and feed off of crosses on the deck
      Morison can go down the line and cut infield and if used with Fredericks overlapping on the wing, I think we could have a useful formation

    "constantly keeping tabs on who might be available on a short term deal" . This is a complete contradiction of what IH said a few weeks ago when he stated he would only consider future loan signings with a view to them becoming available permanently.

    Don't think we need any more signings, just need to get a settled side. If we can steer clear of injuries and suspensions then results will come. Not sure we have the time for any more new signings to settle in.

    I'm starting to get bored with all the b.u.l.l.s.h.i.t coming out of the mouths of people running the club. this season has been total s.h.i.t so stop the chat and do the biz on the park where it matters or its div 1 next season. we need 6 points from next 3 games or its all over simple as! The board has cocked up on and off the pitch in the last twelve months so get a long term game plan or we are f*****!

    these short term loans are probably just to help the survival in this league then we can move forward next season.

    Still believe we could do with another defender as we only have Shittu who excels their. But he need another big defender besides who can take some of the pressure off him, A settled back four would be of great value to us for the rest of the season.

    We've just signed a left back, Frederico Bessone (ex-Swansea/Leeds), according to SSN. I've heard of him but I think he's something like 30 years old and we already have two left backs. Don't see the logic.

    Bring in 10 players on loan Ollie but it means nothing if our formation om match day is confusing and ineffective.

    @drifter:

    It's not even close to being "too late" to do anything. 10 games could get you 30 points - unlikely I know but if we do go down then we ain't good enough, end of.
