Lawrie Wilson has joined Millwall’s relegation rivals’ Rotherham on loan until the end of the season and sadly I expect that will be the last we see of the former academy player, re-signed by Chris Powell almost 3 years ago.
Wilson is out of contract at the end of the season and has been a peripheral figure for the Addicks this season, although he has featured in 27 games, but mostly in bit parts. Early in the season 17-year old Joe Gomez was preferred at right back to Wilson, when Solly was rested and Jóhann Berg Gudmundsson has made the right side of midfield his own.
Maybe Wilson’s flexibility has been his downfall, especially with Luzon preferring square pegs in square holes. Last season was entirely different when Lawrie was mine and many others’ player of the season.
That old card school of Jacko’s is looking a bit thin on the ground.
I missed that Alan Curbishley is back at Fulham helping out Kit Symons in an advisory capacity. Between Curbs and Lawrie, Millwall’s odds of going down must have just shortened.
