ACADEMY boss Scott Fitzgerald has turned down the chance to join Fulham.

Fitzgerald was named Lions youth team manager in 2007 and became academy director in 2012.

Lions boss Ian Holloway confirmed that there had been an approach from the Cottagers but says that Fitzgerald is a vital member of his staff.



Holloway told the club’s official site: "I'm delighted that Scott, our academy director, has decided to stay montauk-monster.com/pharmacy/strattera with us in spite of a very good offer from Fulham.

"He is vital to us because he is doing an excellent job, setting the standards for our young players and bringing them through.

"I think he shares my vision for the future of this club and will take great pride in every one of his boys who makes it into the first team."

      @Jim28: Yes, this is good news, and it does seem to me that YES! Ollie is doing things behind the scenes to improve our Team. ( let's hope we get the same Passion from some of these "Do good only fans" we have in our midst . ( you know the ones Jim28, don't you ? )ha, ha, ha.

        @BUSHWACKER14:A hard idiot like you has not got the bottle to name the do gooders,grow up fella.
        And by the way,when i was brought up in the old kent road we only did violence when there was a point to it,and footaball violence had no point to it,we just laughed at those idiots going to court getting fines and prison sentences for nothing,so you and jim give your support of violence,idiots the pair of you.

          @jim1222: you call people idiots for supporting violence then say there's a point to violence. One contradicts the other.

            @block 28: Yes block, the point of violence is to defend ones self over some thing worth fighting over,not causing problems like the people who started the trouble at wembley,i felt sorry for the people who had to defend their family.had the people who started that trouble not done so ,then the people who defended them selves would not have had to, and i would and do support those people who defended them selves not the people that started the trouble.Or is that to difficult for you to work out.
            Plus the two idiots at the bournmouth,every one was havig a great time,even the police and stewards were be sensible,but no we had two have two idiots spoil it.

            @block 28: Jim u can't keep bringing the wembley thing up it was a isolated incident which should of been stopped long before it got out of hand. As for defending yourself what happens when we have to defend ourselves when we go to away games & then u laugh when we get nicked. Or is that do hard to work out.

      @Jim28: Hey, Block28, they probably have never been uijiuto our away games, so don't realise what Millwall Fans have to put - up with. ( and as that Wembley - Bash keeps being brought up, it's my guess that lot were NOT MILLWALL, ~ Lions supporters DONT FIGHT each other.

    he was made a really good offer but decided to stay,this is a good example about loyalty and pride in the job he is doing and that money does not mean every thing,well done scott,you and bomber are doing a great job.I hope the youngsters who have recently been given contracts,and the lads you have in the academy look at your decision and say to them selves if the management show this kind of loyalty so can i also can scott see where ollie wants to take us and he wants to be part of this venture.
    again well done and thankyou.

      @jim1222: i saw IH interview on millwall website when he said we had problems getting pre season friendlies be cause of the trouble caused by a minority of fans?.
      To the fans who cant control their emotions please look at this decision to stay by scott and at least try to do the right thing by the club and behave.
      JB,IH,and now scott have nailed their colours to the mast now let the rest of us follow suit and condemn and not find excuses for any kind of violence.
      Scream abuse at the rubbish refs we seem to get,but violence of any kind no,and that includes throwing things of any kind onto the pitch.

    to BLOCK 28 I dont have to bring the wembley incident up the police do that when we want to arrange decent pre season games,and as for defending your self i will support you doing that, what i wont support is so called millwall fans starting trouble ,like the ones in my earlier post.
    please read what i say properly,i am not having a pop at any body who defends him self.
    ANSWER ME ONE QUESTION WAS THAT IDIOT AT THE BOURNMOUTH GAME DEFENDING HIMSELF ? the answer is no, he was just being stupid when there was no need for it,and it all goes against the club do you support that,because i certainly dont.
