RUFC - Robins 'thankless job'

RUFC - Robins 'thankless job'

Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins was applauded to the dug out before the game started on Saturday but then the same fans booed and criticised him for taking off Tom Cahill.

'Supporters are entitled to their view,' Robins told The Star, 'but I'll carry on and pick the team. But I am grateful for everyone one of the supporters who come and stick by the club.

'It's a difficult place to work at the moment. We're putting in long hours and my staff and I have only received part of our salary and received help from no one - it's a thankless task at times. But, we have to get on with it and hope something is going to happen.

'I understand there are people waiting in the wings and I hope there is a future here. But, while we are waiting we are just scratching around for a living and trying to keep everyone's spirits up.'

Robins was left with only 16 fit players on Saturday which included two youngsters on the bench in David Haggerty and goalkeeper, Mark Oxley. Jamie Yates had been ruled out in the morning with an illness and Ian Ross went off feeling ill at half-time.

I can understand the frustration that the fans were feeling on Saturday but, personally, I think it's a time for us Millers to stick together and remember what's going off at the club. It's no good blaming this body and that body. Stand up and be counted and let's hope, in the near future, we will, once again, be proud to call ourselves Millers.

i hate people who moan, yes robbo all the world knows your job is difficult, but try doing shifts down a pit mate- then you will know what graft is, you are starting to get on everyones nerves if you don't like it bugger off, if you do just shut up and get on with it, you are losing respect with the public , you have already lost it with the team.
