Fredericks' committed tackling impresses Millwall manager

IAN Holloway has been pleased with Ryan Fredericks' recent progress – and says the loan defender sometimes looks like he was born to play for Millwall.

Fredericks has made 12 appearances for the Lions since joining from Tottenham on loan in January, and made back-to-back starts last week after being dropped against Leeds.

And Holloway has been particularly impressed with the 21-year-old's committed tackling, which was on display against Blackburn Rovers last weekend.

Holloway said: "It's a tough old job for him, isn't it? He wanted to come here, he scored on his debut to get us a win and everything was hunky dory then.

"He's learning what to do and how to do it, and sometimes he looks like he was born to be a Millwall player.

"Some of his tackles are completely…talk about committed! He's gone into someone on the halfway line on Saturday and I loved to see that.

"It was fair, it was right and he played the ball. It is a big ask for him but hopefully I will get the balance right because we need people to get outside of our full backs.

"If you can't go over the other team, you have got to go round them, if you can't go through them, you've got to go over them – it depends what we need."

Holloway is hoping that Fredericks and fellow right-sided player Carlos Edwards can form an effective partnership together in the final seven games of the season.

"There were some promising things down the right side," he said.

"It didn't look that good when Ryan ran past him and didn't say anything, but after that they looked quite promising.

"The great thing is one can run past the other one and they can fill in together – it's like a double right-back, but both of them can run with it."

    'WOLLIE' ALL WE WANT IS SOME MORE CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS, TO GET THEM, YOU AS MANAGER MUST PUT THEM THROUGH THEIR PACES IN THE TRAINING GROUND. EXTRA TRAINING, EXTRA RUNNING ABOUT, IFTHEY CANT DO IT , GET RID OF THEM, NAME & SHAME THEM, LIKE THEY HAVE DONE TO US FANS. NO ONE LIKES US, WE DONT CARE. THE STORM..............WANTS HARD WORKERS.

    What is the point now with seven games left and relegation soon to be confirmed, that we're talking about what Fredericks and Edwards are going to do. Both will not be Millwall players next season, so start playing players who are likely to be here for next season.

    That's right talk him up,he will be out on loan to another championship team next season. Try giving a go to the players who will be staying next season to see how good they are. Then you know what you need to bring in to get out of Division One

          @Barnlion: Agree there Barnlion, Fred and Pavey should figure but if anyone thinks we are coming back up with that lot then there are some pretty deluded people around. Bloody depressing!

            @Sealion: Exactly Sealion not going to be easy as money will be tight and its going to hard to attached anyone worth there salt, with the squad we will have and also the Manager who has more permutations than Enstine as far as team selection is concerned.

    Ollie its a pity that the forwards ar not as commited as you think ryan is, but why even talk about this when it looks even more certain that we are going down, and you come out with this B******* and not adressing the situation regarding this terrible run you are in charge of.

      @block 28:I may be wrong but I don't think Spurs will be keen for their boy to play in the 3rd tier.Also don't think Morro would want to play 3rd tier either and his wages would be a stumbling block if he did.

        @harry2310:
        what grounds are there for thinking we wont be top 6 next year - no reason why we can't recruit some good players - the completion aint that hot -
        why 3-4 years? no logic in putting a date like that on it - how do you know what the situation of the club will be in, in 4 years - why are you so pessimistic

    Good interview with Chopper on lions player about the U21's beating top of the table Cardiff.
    He was saying that Jack Powell is looking good, as well as Aiden O'Brien and wait for it......... Nicky Bailey!
    Chopper said his communication and leadership skills on and off the pitch helped the youngsters- and will see how his injury reacts to having game time... if good, he maybe back in the 1st team for last couple of games..... (might be too late now unfortunately!)
    Also said that Pavey is currently injured, but will soon be back in training..... and Sid Nelson sat out for the Cardiff game- but has been looking very strong all season....

    Have just renewed mine and my daughters season tickets at the cost of 530 of my hard earned pounds,
    Just hoping that next season in division one is a far more enjoyable than this one, if it turns out to be another crock of s**** i will be spending the following seasons money on Curling lessons. 🙂

    Can all loan players and employed players not wanting to be here next season be immediately dropped and their spaces filled with young players? Is there something in contracts not permitting this use of the last desparate moments of this season and turning it into valuable experience next season for the 3rd tier?

    Spurs never loan the same player to the same club twice, so we can forget about him end of this season.
