RUFC - What has Andy Scott let himself in for?

RUFC - What has Andy Scott let himself in for?

Rotherham United appointed Andy Scott yesterday evening as the new Manager.

Chairman, Tony Stewart was impressed with the former Sheffield United striker's CV and said he turned the Boards heads.

Andy himself has told us that he is fiercely ambitious and, from the interviews he's done, seems to know exactly what he wants from the players and the football club.

But, taking a step sideways for a minute, let's look at what Andy Scott has let himself in for by signing that three year contract yesterday.

Firstly he's got one of the Millers (in my eyes) main players out for around seven months.
Secondly he's got the first choice 'keeper definitely out for the next few weeks and probably one of the strikers, who no one really knows what's wrong with
Thirdly he's got ten players out of contract at the end of the season, plus his star striker refusing to sign an extension to his contract.
Fourthly he's got the prospect of another of his strikers who could be facing a spell with her Majesty's pleasure
Fifthly he's going to be working with the two people who the fans thought, and maybe they thought too, were going to be in charge for the rest of the season
Sixthly, I really think he will be under a lot of pressure to take us up next season if we don't make it this time

Not the easiest start to the thirty-eight year old's managerial career with the Millers is it?

Then again, he did take Brentford from the depths of League Two to win the title by six points in his first season as manager there, getting them to ninth place in League One the next season plus beating big teams such as Hull and Everton in the Carling Cup before losing out to Birmingham on penalties in the semi-final.

So, I want to say, Good Luck to Andy Scott and vote that we all get behind him and hope he's here until his contract ends and maybe beyond

I love the 'fiercely ambitious' bit Caz, so hopefully, all the ifs and buts won't get a look in!! Good Luck Andy, and welcome to the Millers!

I just hope he can do the same as he did with Brentford. Although I am a Bournemouth fan, for some reason I simply can't fathom I always want Rotherham to win games and get promoted and tend to keep an eye out for their results. I guess because maybe the two teams are quite similar in the way that they constantly frustrate the fans! P.S Where is the justice in the world when we have been stripped of our 2 best strikers and our best midfielder, one of which has only had about 5 1/2 months of genuine first team action, whilst you have managed to hold on to Le Fondre for absolutely ages!?

The justice, Chris, is that the manager before last had Alfie's contract tied up in a ribbon and it will take silly money for Alf to move before his contract is up Thanks for the hope - and yes, it will be good if Andy can get us up like he did Brentford. When my children were young we spent all our holidays in Boscombe and came to Bournemouth on the little train (or walked over) every day - so I always look out for your results too! Also, with us being in the same boat with the minus points I always feel we have an 'affinity' with the Cherries
