Harris Something Special ?
23 October 2017 21:01 Post ID: #1558455
Every player that Harris has signed has said the same thing about he sold the club to me and i had other better offers but Neil Harris made me sign for millwall the latest is Tunnicliffe. He could go on to greater thing in the future and i would love to see this happen but not just yet.

Read this http://www.newsshopper.co.uk/sport/15612559.Millwall_midfielder_rej...

“I’ve never had it where the manager has met me and done a presentation on me and how Millwall like to play. It made me feel wanted. And I came out of that meeting and said to my agent ‘that’s somewhere I’d love to play, especially under the boss (Neil Harris).’”

He's done very well, and I don't like putting a downer on it, but I am still far from convinced. He's doing ok at the moment, but still very early days and a long long way to go. I still think if he keeps us up this year comfortably, he would have done very well. Good luck to him and not bad so far.

I know early last year i was worried about his tactics and did say he should go i'm not going to lie but his man management seems second to none and he is still learning and very young for a manager so maybe he could go on and manager england one day why not, the shit we have had so far and what we got now southgate wtf has he done took middlesbrough down and got sacked.

Saw Steve Coppell down the Den a few weeks ago Think he may have helped Harris with his knowledge

“I’ve never had it where the manager has met me and done a presentation on me and how Millwall like to play."

Surprised he said this. There were rumours about lots of clubs being interested in him over the summer.

Assumed these days it would be the norm to have at least two presentations given to the player. One from the manager on the football side of things. One from a member of the board on the financial package.

Meredith said he was impressed with Harris's presentation after signing. But didn't say Parkinson didn't do something similar at Bolton.

Suspect both players had presentations given to them from other clubs, but were most impressed with Millwall's.

I don't doubt NH man management skills, that is pretty evident on the field in the way that there is team and not eleven individuals. I've said previously the best bit of management from Harris came when we missed out against Barnsley, that was keeping the the team together, we could have easily lost key players.

As for Tunny, I'm sure Neil did a good sales pitch on him and everything he say's is true, however I wonder how many options he had? The week before the deadline, other clubs interested but no takers, frozen out at Fulham and a possible rep for being a bit of a loose cannon on the pitch. His options may have been limited.

From the moment he took the managers job and up to now he has improved us bit by bit,we are a championship club and think most wall fans are happy with just being that,can Neil take us higher up this league or even further? time will tell but at the moment we are all enjoying the ride. COYL

Surely, Adam, you didn't expect the manager of Bristol City, say, while trying to sign him give a presentation on how Millwall like to play....

Next season will be his real test of his management credentials, season 2 always the hardest test.

If Dyche goes to Everton I can see Burnley come calling?
Neil would be a good fit there.

MFC and Neil Harris fit perfectly, would he have the same success elsewhere ? doubt it.

Neil Harris knows us inside out and has built and will carry on building a team we can be proud of on a very small budget.

For probably the first time in our history at this level, we have players who want to sign for us, word will get around amongst the professionals that Millwall is a great place to play your football under this manager, whereas before, we could only entice wage thieves seeing out the end of their careers.

Cant see Neil leaving us in the foreseeable future, he did as a player, which did not work out too well for him.

But a chance to manage in the premier league and double, or treble, your wages will tempt most people?

Maybe much to early for him though.
I hope Berylson realises what a gem he has, after the dross we have had to endure over the last few years.

None of the current Premiership managers were poached from a Championship club. Most haven't managed in the Championship at all, apart from Dyche, Hughton etc who got promotion to the Premiership with their current clubs.  

Premiership clubs either go for foreign managers such as Klopp or Pellegrino. Or English managers with Premiership experience, such as Hughes & Pullis. 

Don't blame them. Ince went to Blackburn & lasted 5 minutes. Big Sam took over & instantly steadied the ship. 

Will be a big jump for Harris to go into the Premiership now. Even at Burnley. He's still young in managerial terms & there is no hurry. Maybe in the future & maybe with Millwall.

Burnley might go for someone like Pardew. However suspect Pardew may be more interested in the Everton job.

Come to think of it, Big Mick had no Premiership experience before taking over at Sunderland. However he had guided the Republic of Ireland to one major Championship in 6 years. Sunderland went down.

Think the days of top flight sides recruiting managers from lower down are gone.

I think you need to make yourself a PL manager if you arw English now & then prove yourself before getting a job offer from another PL club - like Big Sam & Pulis did and Dyche and Howe are doing.

Look at Chris Wilder - been a success at every club he has managed and now has Sheffield United looking good at the top end of the Championship - yet how many jobs in the PL do you hear him linked to?

Adam, I think you are spot on, every time we have a win people think that so and so is going to move on be it players and managers, I could understand all the anxiety if we were top of this league and deemed to be punching above our weight.
How long has Dyche been at Burnley before he's suddenly getting recognition and he's given them 2 promotions to the Prem in that time.
Stop being all starry eyed, Neil is doing a superb job at the moment it will take a lot more than his current achievements before the Prem boys come knocking, maybe some team in the championship will be tempted at some stage.
