'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Tonight's Forum

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins and his Assistant, John Breckin held a Question and Answer session this evening at the Horse and Jockey in Rawmarsh.

Most of the questions centred around new players and the manager said 'We have a few irons in the fire - some that have been pulled out and some that we have put back in. We are hopeful that we can get the calibre of player that we want to bring in. At the moment, things are looking OK.'

Speaking about Michael Boulding he said that he's got a few clubs interested in him.

'We are interested in any quality player we can bring in but we can't go out and spend one hundred and seventy grand on a striker -you know there are hundreds of free transfers out there. But we have to make sure we are in a position where we can compete.

'We have to try and develop our own young players and we have some that are coming through.

'We've got a young lad, Stephen Connor from Everton on trial and we shall watch him in some games.

'The players have come back with a good level of fitness and are working hard.'

He was asked how Stephen Brogan was going on after he broke his leg at the start of the year. 'Well, he's a champion on the play station!' Robins said. 'It was a bad injury and around the same time Eduardo of Arsenal got a similiar injury. Our physio spoke to their physio and whatever they have been doing with Eduardo we have been doing with Paddy. He's working very hard and when all this has finished he will be as strong as he has always been.'

Someone asked about skipper Graham Coughlan's talked about move to Shrewsbury and Robins replied, 'It's dead in the water. He's in training and running hard and he is a member of our squad.'
