Harris on leaving Millwall

Mentioned that it was "nice" to be linked with the Huddersfield job. Does that mean he will be open to offers elsewhere?

It got me thinking.

If Harris manages to get a few results home and away over the next few weeks, we could sat in the play offs come October and if things do improve, its very possible that we could be sat in and around the top 6/8 in November.

Fast forward to the next managerial victim. Maybe Stoke, maybe Birmingham or maybe even Forest. At this point Harris would be very top of his proverbial league "best managers on a low budget". he would no doubt be top of some lists.

At this point, Harris may have his head turned and we may be without a manager. I'm genuinely worried about this, as it would no doubt lead to a turbulent time at the Den, with Livermore up the pecking order and the "cheap option" probably at the top of our owners list too.

In an ideal world, we would have a period of time when we can re-look at our squad, the style of play and the whole Harris approach to seeing out football matches - which would highlight our weaknesses on the pitch. But who would we get in as manager? My guess would be a foreign manager that wants to cut his teeth at championship level, but it could be a Warnock or someone of that stature that sees us as a great potential.

Failing this, Harris will stay and we'll all be moaning next season as well.

If we're being realistic, it would be a compliment if youre linked with another club.
So I cant slaughter him for that.

However.....Come Saturday, if he selects Williams, Leonard & AOB I will do.
I will never leave my beloved Millwall for any other club, maybe i will play my mates against Blackburn, maybe i wont.

No Garry Shandling
Hank used to say it and before you say “I’ve no idea what your on about” RIP Torn was in the show and he was definitely your era Whisky
I wasn't referring to that. It was a joke at Hey know-nothing, or whatever his name is.

I was a massive fan of the Larry Sanders show: a golden age of US comedy. And paranoid Hank was one of my favourite characters of all time.

By the way, I read in the papers a few weeks back that Rip Torn, who absolutely brilliantly played grizzled, conniving, all things to all people producer Arty, had died.

Read his obituary in the Telegraph (yes, I am a champagne socialist) He was a bit of a character in real life & a typical needy actor

Why the fuck would Harris leave wall for a job up north no way unsettle his family etc. His got it cushy at wall and yes some of the football ain't brilliant but at least we know he has wall in his heart.
Asnswer this one little question even to the most simple Lions supporters.
The only reason Harris kept coming back was no one else wanted the useless piece of crap, every time he left he returned just like a boomerang.
He might top the clubs all time goals lists, but statistics don’t always tell the truth for example if Sherringham had played the same amount of games has Harris had he would of topped 200 most likely but he left as most good footballers do and had a great career in the top flight like other great players did.
Harris has not got Millwall at heart like you stated he knows where is bread is buttered and he knew how to play up to some of our simple minded fans who to this day still wear blinkers when it comes to this idiot Harris

Everyone is entitled to their view lionmarch but yours happens to be bullshit. Bomber undoubtedly lost pace after his illness but in his first spell he scored 93 goals in 233 appearances - the excellent Derek Possee, widely regarded as one of our best players managed 79 in 223. Derek of course scored at a higher level but when he left, as allegedly most good players do, he did sod all for p**arse. But of course it suits your agenda to pick out our most successful striker ever. That's like comparing every single centre back to Charlie Hurley or all our goalkeepers to Alex Stepney. It's a bloody stupid argument and you need to work a sight harder at it - that or go back to whining about his track record as a manger which might have a shred more validity although statistically that too is complete crap. Keep up the good work.
