RUFC - Moore 'it did hurt'
Rotherham United Manger, Ronnie Moore says that they have to be 'sensible' going into this evening`s game with Aldershot at Don Valley.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, Moore said, 'We want to put them on the back foot as much as we can and not find ourselves sitting back and coming at us. We need to take the game to them and see how they cope when we put them under pressure.
'Although, when I first came here the thing was to get to that third spot, I think it's a magnificent achievement for the lads that they've got here. Not saying anything about Don Valley because we can't do anything about it, but we've only lost four games here all season.
'And what annoys me is that people are still moaning and groaning. We've won twelve away from home - we're in a dire state aren't we. We've had so many draws at home it's unbelievable but I'm sure if we draw here tonight that the seven thousand here will be happy about that.
'Looking back what has been said does hurt and the Morecambe caper was hard to take and it's not nice hearing 'we want Ronnie out', but I've had it before at Rotherham.
And, to be fair, it's near enough the same side that produced the performance they produced on Saturday. And, that's what's wrong with the players at this level, the inconsistency.
'I think it will be a wonderful achievement if we can do it tonight, and not just for me or Jimmy (Mullin) or Dibbs (Andy Dibble) but for the players for the performances they've given just recently.'
I`ll be honest, I didn`t want Ronnie Moore to be our manager again. I didn`t, and actually still don`t, think he was the right man. But, everything is out of the window tonight. It`s not Ronnie Moore I will be supporting. I will be supporting Rotherham United - and I am sure the other Millers fans will be too.
