RUFC - What a difference a week makes

RUFC - What a difference a week makes

What a difference a week makes being a Rotherham United fan.

This time last week we were all feeling humiliated, embarrassed, angry - words failed me. After all, losing five-nil is always bad but losing five-nil on live television has to be the worst thing ever.

This week it`s as though a cloud has been lifted. I can see a rainbow beyond the stormy skies and the gloom is receding.

Helping organise coaches for away games, this time last week I was finding it difficult to fill the coach to Lincoln; in fact, I was having phone calls from people who suddenly found they had urgent appointments for Friday night. This week I`m filling the coaches for every remaining away game.

Yes, it`s amazing what a six-nil win can do!

And yes, football fans can be fickle, but then again, money`s often tight these days and who wants to pay out good money to be miserable?

So, what`s happened? Is it just a case of out with the old and in with the new? Well, I don`t think so because, after all, Andy Liddell and Paul Warne have been with the club for a while now. It could well be that, being younger than the last management team, they have more of an idea what players want and need now.

I think we all heard the rumours that the players didn`t want to play under Ronnie Moore but I can`t really see that being the case at this stage of the season. After all, most of them are playing for a new contract or to impress other clubs - well, last Friday they wouldn`t have impressed the Rose and Crown pub team. Perhaps last Friday they were all having an off day - or maybe they had 'television fright`.

Well, whatever it was they have certainly addressed it and came out fighting this week.

It wasn`t the first time I`ve seen a Millers side win six-nil (and I hope it`s not the last!) and it maybe wasn`t the most impressive six-nil win I`ve seen but it was certainly the most timely.

So what do I think the difference was? I think that was a complete team effort from coming out warming up to coming towards the fans at the end of the game as a club - because not only the players came to applaud us so did the whole bench.

As fans, that`s all we ask - effort, commitment and acknowledgement.

Though, of course, there are some among us think that it was all down to Lids wearing a lucky suit…..
