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

RUFC - Moore embarrassed

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says that today's game left him the most embarrassed he'd ever been as a manager.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the two-nil defeat to bottom of the league, Darlington, Moore said, 'To lose six points to the bottom of the league is embarrassing and if the players aren't embarrassed they want locking up.

'We tried a new system to day to get it on the floor and move it and how many long balls did we play? They just kept pumping balls long.

'You give instructions to the back four what you want and if they don't do it you're in trouble. All the players in the side are capable of passing the ball. But like we said to the back four, once they're put under pressure the panic sets in and we've got to be brave on the ball. We've got players who supposedly can play, can pass, can move, can shoot, can cross but I didn't see that today.

'And it doesn't seem to matter who you put in the side there's no improvement. We're miles of the pace at the moment and we've got to get them back working hard, starting tomorrow.

'We didn't test their 'keeper today but I don't think our 'keeper made too many saves to be fair. And the goals were comical. We couldn't deal with the long ball in the box and the lad scored and for the second we've had four or five chances to clear it.

'It's a quiet dressing room. They know they've let everybody down. We've had eleven individuals today, not a team.

'The away supporters have been terrific this season and I want to say to them 'keep the faith' but we need something to light that blue touch paper for them.

'We're not happy, you can't be happy with a performance like that. We know where the faults are, it's just a matter of getting the plug tight and putting it in there.'
