Harris Will Install Old Values

9 September 2015

James Collins says Neil Harris knows what Millwall stands for better than anyone.

James Collins believes that the appointment of Neil Harris as Millwall manager will see a return to the old values of the club.

Harris, 38, replaced Ian Holloway back in March with the club struggling to remain in the Championship and although The Lions did enjoy a mini-revival under their all-time record goalscorer, he couldn’t quite inspire them to safety.

Now Harris is looking to reintroduce the former Millwall philosophy build on passion and hard work for the blue shirt.

Ahead of our meeting with Millwall at Gresty Road this weekend, James Collins told “It has been a few years since we have played Millwall at our ground and it will be nice to have a club of that size coming to Crewe.

“Hopefully we can put on another good performance and get a positive result.

“When a club is relegated from the Championship they sometimes find it difficult to adjust to the level. Millwall have found that this time and so have Wigan. It is a tough league and Millwall have struggled to get results at home. They have done well on the road though and it will be another tough game for us.

James added: “Neil (Harris) is a young manager and he is learning things on the job, like everyone has to but he would have learned a lot already and one thing is for sure he knows the club better than anyone. He is an absolute legend there and he knows that the Millwall fans want 100% commitment from their players. They don’t settle for anything less there and we will have to make sure we match their work ethic on Saturday.”
