    Shaun Williams

    We understand that Millwall and Brighton have agreed fees for MK Dons star Shaun Williams and that the Irishman has been given permission to hold talks with both clubs about a possible move away from Stadium mk.

    Versatile, he can play in defence or midfield and he won both Player's Player of the Year and Player of the Year at the end of the 2012/2013 season. 10 goals in 33 games this season.

    Most of those goals are pens.

    Was wondering when he would get a move.

    Quality player.
    Yeah man, they call gambling a disease, but it's the only disease where you can win a bunch of money.

    Always a classy player in the LOI. Delighted to see him in demand.

    Looks like Shaun is choosing Millwall over Brighton after a fee of 250,000 was accepted, subject to a medical on Monday.

    Stood out for me when I saw MK Dons in the playoffs a couple of seasons ago. Classy player.

    A player I could never get my head around. One of the worst players to ever pull on a Finn Harps jersey, but will always be remembered for an absolute belter of a goal scored up here.

    It could always have been the case however, that he never gave a f*ck about playing for Finn Harps. One season which is proving to be a minor blip in an otherwise decent career.

    Or maybe he just played badly for Harps because he was at a low ebb in his career, hence why he was loaned out to begin with.

    Holloway praises "Xavi, Iniesta and Adam" type Shaun Williams and signs him with view to playing him in midfield; Williams aims for International call up.

    Yes, really.

    That probably sounds worse than it is. I think he's just throwing in a comparison for a player who's done a specific job for him. I assume he's planning to play him in midfield rather than defence then.

    Best of luck to the lad, he was excellent in his spell with us up in Dundalk.

    Just scored his first goal for Millwall, a penalty, and it could be a very important one as it takes them level with Charlton and with Barnsley who are also winning. Blackburn down to 10 men as a result of giving away the penalty.

    Ian Holloway wanted to sign Williams for Palace after they got promoted to the Premier League but MK Dons wanted 1m. He ended up leaving for 200,000 six months later.

    Typical.

    Powell has revealed he models his game on the likes of Andrea Pirlo and fellow team-mate Shaun Williams.

    "I like the way Shaun Williams plays," Powell said.

    "He's really composed on the ball, he has a good left foot and great range of passing - but he isn't frightened to go in to win the ball back.

    "I look up to Shaun in that way - you can trust him with the ball, you can give it to him anywhere and he'll look after it."

    Martin O'Neill was reportedly impressed by Williams' performance against Sheffield Wednesday, in spite of the missed penalty.

    Shaun Williams and Alan Dunne backed for future Ireland call ups

    http://www.newsatden.co.uk/39206-exc...-call-ups.html

    "But Holloway said: "Surely they've got to be looking at Dunney? Is there a better defender than Dunney in Ireland at the moment?"

    John O'Shea, Marc Wilson, Ciaran Clark, Richard Dunne, Paul McShane, Shane Duffy, Rob Kiernan, Tommie Hoban, Damien Delaney...... I know we're only little Ireland but come on!

    Eh, correct me if I'm wrong but Dunne is playing right back for Millwall? I rather thought we had a good player there already, but for the life of me I can't remember his name.

    I think Alan has been deputising at CB since the start of the season. It doesn't make Holloway's comments any less strange. I hope he's on to something re: Williams though.
