Millwall midfielder Upson raring to go ahead of new season

ED UPSON will be "raring to go" when Millwall return to training next week.

The midfielder, 24, made ten appearances after signing from Yeovil in January until a combination of a two-game suspension and an ankle injury ended his season prematurely.

Millwall's players report back after their summer breaks on June 26 and Upson is determined to show Lions fans the form that prompted his move from Huish Park.



"I'm ready to go," Upson told NewsAtDen.

"I've been doing a bit of training in the off season, so I'm raring to go.

"Obviously with missing the last five games, I've had a longer break away from football than everyone else and I'm desperate to get back.



"We were given programmes that we had to stick to, and you could do your own sort of interpretations of it as well.

"I've been keeping fit, in the swimming pool and running around the area where I live.

"It's important to keep that base level of fitness up because you don't want to go back and have nothing.

"With the injury it was something that can't be helped. I saw the footage of Marco Reus getting injured for Germany and that was exactly what happened to me.

"I missed a bit of last season which is unusual for me, as I'm hardly ever injured – touch wood!

"It was obviously frustrating but it's made me even more excited to get back now — it's going to be brilliant, I can’t wait.

"I'm totally better now. The physio worked hard with me at the end of last season and now I'm back to full fitness.

"There's a great bunch of lads here and with a good pre-season under our belts, we're going to be a force."

    Only thing is change is we need another top striker up top a gregory could be great or could be crap so need a backup striker as Easter marquis scares no championship defense obrian is a gd prospect but maybe needs a league 1 loan b4 hes ready. If billy sharps still available maybe go in for him

    Marquis is not the answer. We DO need at least another striker.

    Im just so happy we have Holloway.. As soon as he was appointed i was buzzing.. How he turned us around was nothing short of a miracle.. People were giving him unfair stick within weeks which was stupid. He offers the ability to sign players, motivate and play good attacking football. With him as our manager i am actually excited for once (no offence to KJ, great manager but boring team selection and style) not expecting promotion ambitions but a style of football which is exciting and can be proud of. In ollie we trust!

    Think Ed showed a bit of promise before the injury curtailed his season. Glad he's happy to be with us and long may it remain so because he might have to fight for a place in the side next season.
