I meant that in the sense that he didn't stand out to me, rather than that he underperformed. To be fair, I thought he looked a lot better v Bromley."Have to say I wasn't that impressed by Chapman".
Moroccan fella I reckon you will be once he has played a few league games
Best player on the pitch in both the games I've seen him play this season. Me thinks he's going to be our stand-out player this seasonI meant that in the sense that he didn't stand out to me, rather than that he underperformed. To be fair, I thought he looked a lot better v Bromley.
You down with Monlouis? (Yeah you know me)Updated to include everyone appearing in pre-season games so far. The recent Southwark News interview with Gavin Rose stated that he hopes to add another centre back, a full back who can cover either side, and another forward. I assume these three players could potentially come from amongst the triallists seen so far, in which case Ambroisine looks a strong contender for the first role based upon game time, Barnes a possible for the second after playing well for 90 minutes yesterday, and possibly Akinyemi for the third seeing as we already know about him; but then there are going to be further players becoming available over the next couple of weeks as other clubs decide they aren't what they're looking for.

Couple of Millwall fans I spoke to on Saturday seemed to think we could have a really good player on our hands if he can stay free of injuries so will be interesting to see how he gets on in the remaining pre-season games (assuming he's still involved).Bit of background on triallist Lewis White. Local lad, born in Lewisham.
Exclusive: Millwall prospect Lewis White on injury setback, being on bench for EFL Cup tie and his ultimate ambitions
There seem to be parallels with Reise Allassani when you read about how his career has stalled through injury at the wrong moment, as well as the way he describes himself as a player and even his physique and appearance. He played against us as a substitute in the goalless draw at Concord Rangers in February.Couple of Millwall fans I spoke to on Saturday seemed to think we could have a really good player on our hands if he can stay free of injuries so will be interesting to see how he gets on in the remaining pre-season games (assuming he's still involved).
He came off the bench against both Bromley and Spurs and that's the only name that was announced for him, in the fashion that players from Portugal/Brazil often seem to go by a single name. I suspect that's where he originates from but it makes googling him for any background information impossible.Who on earth is Belo?
Good work. I didn't see him closely enough to be certain and his hair seemed a little longer, but it looks like our man and one of the player database sites gives his position as left-wing which is where he played.
So basically I was right then! He played in the second pre-season match at Chester and was with the matchday squad for subsequent matches. Spin it how you like, he was clearly "here" and not playing or on trial with Wrexham or Orient or Carlisle.Except he wasn't still with us because his contract had expired back in May and he didn't return to training until after other players.
Interesting to hear your feedback on this. We’re trying a number of new things across the club media this season and generally this style of announcement seems to go down well on social media.So basically I was right then!

I'm pleased to hear of players being retained, or the best of the triallists signing for us, but these announcements that there's going to be an announcement just seem ridiculous to me when it's something everyone anticipated anyway. If it's already happened why not just tell us in the first place? (No doubt it's all down to generating extra website or Twitter hits, which may be very exciting for some people but not for me)
