Its not about Celtics reputation. Its about playing opportunities. He wud get limited time at Celtic pure and simple. 


Or maybe he just didn't want to play for a manager whose football tactics basically amount to kicking man and ball and seeing which you can land further down the field in a dead end league that its players are all playing to get a move out of.


You obviously haven't watched Celtic play,

He could have been part of a historic 10 in a row.

He probably would have won a league and cup medals, played in the CL and or EL, but choose to stay closer to the nightlife in London.


Or potentially start every week for Millwall and not have to move from his home in London as opposed to being 3rd or 4th choice at Celtic?

Its a no brainer to pick Millwall over Celtic at this stage of his career where he needs to be playing week in week out, I've  no idea how you can't see that.

Good news.  JM will not help him develop so regular football in a competitive league would be better for him.  He needs to put his head down and work hard. Talent will only take you so far.

There is some talk of Molumby going back for a second season at Millwall, might just be wishful thinking from the Millwall fans.

I think a decision will be made after pre season once Brighton get an idea of their squad and whether he's in their plans for next season or not.

I'd rather he tried for game time in the EPL now because I think he's ready, but I can see the benefit of another year of guaranteed first team football and linking up with Parrott at Millwall as well.

So you believe Parrott needs to be a week-in week-out starter at Millwall but without the pressure of (reasonably) regular goals? Millwall want a dividend, they won't play him otherwise. If Parrott is used as a striker and seems incapable of scoring every four or five games he'll soon end up a Championship bench warmer. Ten goals is not unrealistic.

Parrott has scored at pretty much every level he's played u23 with Tottenham and Ireland underage levels 

Hes got lots of goals in him, he'll be great to watch next year

YEP.
He's been a success at every age, generally underage his peers so I'm hoping he does well and expect him to improve as the season goes. 
Desperately hope he goes injury-free also.

If Parrott is used as a striker and seems incapable of scoring every four or five games he'll soon end up a Championship bench warmer. Ten goals is not unrealistic. 

Firstly, I never said Parrott needed nor will be starting every week for Millwall, I said "he needs to playing week in week out" which would mean starting or getting minutes off the bench on a regular basis.

Secondly, Millwall's strikers are hardly prolific so I would be optimistic if his all round game is good that he won't necessarily be banished to the bench for months on end or anything. 

Matt Smith scored 14 goals in all comps
Tom Bradshaw scored 10 goals in all comps
Bodvarsson scored 5 goals in all comps
Mahoney scored 4 goals in all comps

Thirdly, I have absolutely no idea why you're saying "ten goals is not unrealistic" when I was the one only a day or two ago who debated with you that if Parrott could score between 5-10 goals next season it would be acceptable.

This sums it up neatly Smith Bradshaw Bodvarsson Mahoney Bennet are decent attackers but are very much Championship at best attackers. No fear if he does his stuff and adds his star quality to proceedings he will be playing for them regularly as opposed to the roster of attackers at say Celtic or Bournemouth where it might be tougher getting your game.

So ten goals is your max and ten goals is my min. Sorted. Have a nice weekend.

So anyhoooooow, good news Troy is going to Millwall.

He may not be an automatic starter but will definitely get a lot more minutes than at spurs.
He’ll score some goals but it’s pointless guessing how many.
The important thing is he develops his game and improves. 
He’s 18 playing in the championship which is fantastic. 
All eyes on millwall fc first game !

Looking at their roster of attackers he won’t have to be Mason Greenwood even to play regularly for them. If he can click he will add a bit of star quality to their attack and if he could get 10-15 goal contributions good on him anything else is a bonus. They are pushing for promotion too no doubt hel be key to their hopes.

Bristol Rovers were keen also.  The Pirates were very interested in bringing Parrott onboard.
He's going into the lions den at Millwall.

He'll be playing with some chirpy Cockneys at Millwall. If he can score in his first game,and keep repeating, they'll never give him the bird.

Surely Tottenham have a caveat that Parrott starts a minimum number of games. I'd guess at least 20.
