RUFC - Robins Post Brentford

RUFC - Robins Post Brentford

Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins, was disappointed after the result today at Millmoor.

Speaking to the Official Site he said, 'I thought we gave a hundred per cent and passed the ball better.

'I think the side is still lacking in confidence and we looked a bit unsure early on but I thought we looked more solid and, but for two basic errors, we could have won the game.

'If we'd won the first header for the opening goal it wouldn't have gone in. I thought we were strong and solid and started to grow into the formation we've worked on this week, although it will take a bit of time. On a couple of occasions their full-back did Dale Tonge when he slipped.

'I didn't think it was a bad performance but to concede the goal at the death was a killer blow. I think the lads gave everything they could apart from goals.

'The fans might want to know why I took Tom Cahill off but I was a bit bemused. I didn't think we were getting out and creating anything but when we made the changes we scored the equaliser. We also created more chances and could have gone on to win the game. I was disappointed by the reaction of the crowd as they know things aren't bright around the place at the moment. They didn't like one or two of my decisions and gave me some stick but that doesn't bother me. The proof of the pudding was at the end of the game when we had more chances than the rest of the afternoon.'

robbo, things are bad- but we waste money watching the tripe you turn out week in week out now that's bad.

You can't deny 4eva that we played better than we did at Morecambe. Though, it wasn't a patch on how we played at the start of the season

What has happened at Millmoor Herringthorpe, even after the points deduction you looked to have a chance of making the play offs, it looks like it has gone belly up?

I think the off-field problems have got to the players, although, if I'm honest, it all started to go wrong after Stephen Brogan broke his leg. I think it upset a lot of the younger players. With all this and now the 'Chris O'Grady' affair I think it's all just been to much for them.

But Robins was doing so well at the start of the season. tbh, I think its always the same with football fans - the team starts doing badly and they call for the manager's head. Personally, I would never have got rid of Alan Knill as quickly as we did or Mick Harford either. You have to give a manager time to settle his team.
