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

RUFC - Moore 'don't judge me yet'

Rotherham United fans were calling for Manager, Ronnie Moore's head during and after the 2-0 defeat at Morecambe this afternoon.

Yet another lack lustre display from the Millers and the fourth loss on the trot was enough to send the fans over the edge.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield Moore said, ''It`s alright for the crowd moaning for me to go, fine, but the guy who picked up the man for the first goal went to sleep and he scores - and that`s Ronnie Moore`s fault. They take a free kick, which was never on, that`s Ronnie Moore`s fault. We give the ball away when Alfie turns, that`s my fault. Well, hold on a minute, give me a bit of stick when it`s warranted that`s what I`m saying and judge me when I`ve picked the team with MY players who will come and work their socks off for this club. That`s when you judge me, not today. It annoys me that supporters are quick to turn but the performances haven`t been good and, when the performances aren`t good it`s the manager who get`s the stick. That`s how it is but have a little bit of faith for me.

'Sometimes the players have to take responsibility. In the dressing room, me Jimmy, Dibbs and Warney all talk in there but the players are so quiet it`s untrue. After a gutless performance like that today, I`d just love one or two of them to have a pop at each other - that's what professional players do.

'We know it's hard when you see a performance like todays but we're asking the fans to get behind us.'

'don't judge me yet' - Christ, that must mean he's planning on stopping

When can we judge him? He took over with the club in a healthy position. We're now falling away and with the players he's picked and brought in.

I have no idea baldtobe - even in the warm up yesterday the only players who looked like they were enjoying it were the subs

Stop whining and start managing!!! Blaming players does no-one any favours.
tc0001
who played a right back at left back (with a left back on the bench who was one of our better players last year if not our best ) who also played a centre half at right back and who did not change things around when it was plain to all there that the midfield was failing to cope and as for the centre forward show some backbone ronnie and stop coming up with lame statements YOU ARE AT FAULT YOU PICKED THE WRONG TEAM YOU CHOSE THE WRONG PLAYERS IN THE WRONG POSITIONS YOU CHOSE THE WRONG TACTICS YOU ARE THE WRONG MAN FOR THE JOB JUST SHUT UP AND GO PLEASE

I can tell you mv, that at a reserve game when Moore first came, he was talking to friends of mine. He asked who they thought were the better players and Jamie Green's name was mentioned - and they said the same as you, our best player last year. Mr Moore said, 'oh I don't rate him, h e's too small' - and that was before h e'd seen him play
herringthorpe
So let me get this right then, Ronnie isn't interested in 'the' players, cos he didn't chose them?
rybel_b
That's about it in a nutshell, Bez! Yet, when he first came he said words to the effect 'you don't usually come in as manager to a club that has such a lot of good players.'
