Millwall defender: Friendships with Bolton pals on hold

MARK Beevers says there will be no love lost when ex-Millwall duo Liam Trotter and Liam Feeney return to The Den with Bolton tonight.

Beevers was teammates with Feeney and Trotter for a season-and-a-half before they both left the Lions to join Wanderers last January.

And while the centre backs remains pally with the duo, he insists all friendships will be put on hold for 90 minutes.



"I've played against former teammates before – you just have to put it to one side," he said.

"As soon as the whistle goes, it's down to business and you can be friends after the game."

Beevers added: "Trotts and Feens are good lads. I still speak to Feens a bit – he's in their team and doing really well.



"I've seen a few of his assists and goals so he'll be one to look out for. If he's playing on the right, I'm sure Scott Malone will deal with him.

"It's a massive game tonight. If we beat Bolton and get three more points on the board, the league table will look pretty good.

"And back-to-back wins are well overdue. We need to get a win at home to give our fans something to shout about, which we haven’t done enough recently."

    Always liked Trotter and Feeney for at least when he first came to the club. Trotter's situation is a bit different and fans hate on him for his lazyness but in reality when he was in the side we were a better team as he could dictate play. He also get's a lot of stick for the way he left but in my eyes its the clubs fault just as it is at the minute with players like Malone out of contract when we spend big money on these players and if in contract would get a decent fee for him.

        @Jim28: The problem these days Jim is that the agents stir up all the unrest and turn the players heads. Trotters agent probably made a great deal more getting him to sign for Bolton than staying with us.

      @Omer Ronayne: I don't really hold a grudge towards Trotter and Feeney.
      Trotter was a great player for us when he first arrived, I thought him and Steve Morison were fantastic together that season we got promoted. I still believe he could of played in the premiership, but lacked something Tim Cahill had loads of 'DESIRE, HARDWORK AND THE WILL TO WIN'.
      Feeney was just s***, end of.

      One thing I will say about Trotter was that he publically thanked the lions fans on his twitter page when he left, which I respect him for. Not like that c##t Andy Keogh who mugged us all off. I look forward to the day that c##t comes back down the Den!!

      @harry2310: why did they both have an attitude? How do you know? Because they are black? Mong.

    Trotter was our arguably our best player when he signed permanently for us, him and Jimmy in the midfield was one of the better CM partnerships I've seen - I won't be on his back tonight and even though Feeney was a bit of a t***** with us, I won't boo him either, players always come back to haunt us when we get on their backs at our place... Perhaps if we go 3-0 up this may change!

    Trotter and Feeney are owed nothing by the fans. Both mugged the club off and deserve all the abuse they will probably get tonight. Feeney went as far as blocking fans ( me included, for asking about his injury) on Twitter even before he left for Bolton on loan. Oh, by the way, it was a toe injury, yet he was still able to go ice skating over Canary Wharf!!

    I Always thought Trotter was one of our better players to be honest but I also think he could have been a much better player if he was hungrier and imposed himself on games more , as for Feeney he played one unbelievable game for us then was pretty average at best a one trick pony and a defenders dream with those silly step overs . Tonight I will be like most of the ground making it as uncomfortable as possible for them on their return to the Den and im sure being ex players they wouldn't expect anything less
