Millwall Boss Knows Nothing of Bart Recall Rumours
Wednesday, 27th Nov 2019 10:16
Millwall boss Gary Rowett says he knows nothing of rumours suggesting the Blues could recall keeper Bartosz Bialkowski from his loan in January.
“I haven’t heard anything like that at all,” Rowett told London News Online. “There are certain things in the agreement that I’m aware of. It’s a case of seeing what happens.
“It is what it is. We don’t want to lose Bart – he’s a very, very good player. He’s performed very, very well for us. But at the same time we also have to have a plan in case something happens in that sense.
“Our intention is that hopefully he is here as our goalkeeper – because he’s been great – and the lads love him as well.”
Rowett made similar comments earlier this month when there were claims that Town might recall Bialkowski in January and sell him to another party and admitted managers always plan for a “worst-case scenario”.
Recalling Bialkowski in order to sell him would seem the only reason why the Blues would recall the Polish international, who joined Millwall on a season-long loan in July, a permanent £900,000 move having broken down the previous month due to concerns regarding the 32-year-old’s knee.
Bialkowski, who signed lucrative new terms almost certainly making him the Blues' highest-paid player in July 2018, is contracted until the summer of 2021 with Town having an option for a further season.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
