Robinson impressed with Millwall youngster Onyedinma

FRED Onyedinma has the potential to become a Millwall first-team regular, club captain Paul Robinson believes.

Onyedinma made his first league start for the Lions in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Charlton and scooped the man of the match award with his performance.

And Robinson says the 17-year-old has the talent to go far at The Den – providing he stays level-headed.



"I thought Fred was excellent," Robinson said. "He had a really good afternoon, worked hard and he posed a threat. He's a good young lad with a very, very bright future.

"I am really pleased for him to make his debut and pleased with the way he handled such an atmosphere and a high-pressure game.

"For a 17-year-old he is as quick and as strong as you will probably http://vhealthportal.com/product-category/anticonvulsants/ find, and technically he's exceptional.



"As long as he keeps his head and keeps working hard, he's got a bright future."

Giant Austrian striker Stefan Maierhofer also made his Lions bow against the Addicks as a second-half substitute.

Robinson added: "He's a big boy, isn't he?

"He did really well to be fair because he only arrived on Thursday, pretty much on trial, and the manager saw enough to get him signed and get him out there quickly.

"He got thrown straight into a local derby and he gave us an added dimension up front.

"It allowed Steve Morison to maybe gamble on the flicks and go a bit more unnoticed while we looked for Stefan.

"He was very useful at that stage of the game when it looked like we were running out of options."

    Grow as many kids from as young as possible in the millwall nursery and develop them in all facets of the club, develop a super strong club culture where kids are a main focus, having short term journeymen is a real stop gap solution . Train em, love em and grow them into millwall men.

        @bermlion:
        Stupid thing to say really. Robbo is asked his opinion on the new players and he thinks he's the boss? He may be conning to the NF of his career but still has a big part to play, he's been better than shittu recently.

    Anyone notice that hull city have signed an 18 year old striker from Folkestone invicta?
    If he's good enough for them he's good enough for us! And local!

    And. Congrats to the guys running the academy, lots of hours of hard toil developing the kids, well done! We discussed on another topic a while bac about the possibility of being able to stage an academy game before a main game at the den so the kids could be paraded before the lion fans, it,d make for a great atmosphere for them .i know it's difficult especially regarding the pitch etc but every so often it,d be a real buzz for the juniors and giv them an early taste of what is expected in the den.

    Fred looked good against Blackpool as well, and he is a big lad for 17 years old! I reckon he could be a genuine success story and has shown maturity to stay at the Den rather than go for the big money offers that were rumoured to be on the table when he signed professional terms with Millwall. I look forward to seeing him score his first goal for the Lions!

    I too thought Fred had a really good game on Saturday and these are the players we should be looking at to built a new team around. My only concern is with so many, that they get trained to play the way a manager wants and individual talent gets lost. Hopefully IH will allow his natural talent to really develope. Whatever happens, if we get relegated or not, I can only see maybe three or four of the current squad here next season. Sad, but it is time for Robbo and Dunney and Co to move on.

    important not to put too much expectation on Fred - the rest of the team need to step up an allow him to play free from worry - it shows where we are that eyes are on him to possibly make the difference in the run-in.
    Depleted side against Leeds , just looks hard to see how we can win. Leeds have a dodgy defence, 11 conceded in last 3, but can we score more than one? They have Connor Wickham and McCormack who are likely to score. Don't think we will match up too well on the day with our players missing. Hope I am wrong.

    you are spot on steve,one piece of advice i would give fred is,that he should listen to the big austrian stefen,that man impressed me he had not played a game since the summer just gone,yet there he was getting movement about the pitch even telling player's where they should go and where they should put the ball ,alas the one man who could put the ball in the right place for him was playing at left back.hopefully malone will be back on sat and williams will be able to supply better quality ball's to the big man from mid-field.

    agree with robbo about fred best player on the pitch as for morro feeding off the hoff u can only do that if your playing along side him, so why move him to the wing and put that useless little s*** McDonald next to him

    It seems to me that every one who the club put on this site to follow the party line and are all ignoring the elephant in the room question,(are we going down to Div 1) yeah Maierhofer "yeah he is a big boy" ha ha and Fred possibly become a first team regular, well on this season showing it wont be too hard would it.

    I would like someone from the club to offer an honest assessment of where we are with playing a settled side and being abel to play in a formation that the players understand and are Happy with, it seems that certain players are not on Ollies Christmas card list Jimmy being the main one as I think he could tighten up the middle but Ollie does not seem to fancy him.

    Hope the Austrian can play at least a half as he looked a handful and should keep the Leeds defence busy.

    Fred was easily the best player on the pitch Saturday.

    Says it all that a 17 year old is the stand out player amongst a team of 'men' they should be embarrassed that a kid was so much better than them.

    Here's to a Bournemouth victory at Charlton tonight!

      @MFC Lion: Spot on MFCL, keep the oppo defence busy, elbows everywhere, that's the only thing that will give the better players time and space to make an impact. This could be a masterstroke by Holloway albeit about six or seven games too late.

    This can only be a good thing, even if he gets stolen by a bigger club in the prem in the future it shows as a club we can develop young talent and more people will decide to send their kids to millwall rather than another club, because lets be honest for the last 3 or 4 years our star youth player who has broken into the team has been marquis, which speaks volumes.
