RUFC - Taylor 'the booing doesn't help'

RUFC - Taylor 'the booing doesn't help'

Rotherham United goalkeeper, Rhys Taylor thinks he might have an idea of why the Millers aren`t competing for the top places in League Two.

Joining the Millers at the start of the month on loan from Chelsea, the twenty-one year old thinks we are passing when we should be shooting.

After playing his third game for the Millers at the weekend, Rhys told Dom Howson of The Star, 'I think we always try and play that extra pass when we get ourselves in decent positions around the box instead of shooting. When other teams get twenty to twenty-five yards out, they are looking to shoot at the earliest opportunity, but I think we are making things too complicated and almost trying to pass it into the net and, we don`t test the 'keepers enough.

'You can play all the nice football you want, but if you`re not winning then it`s not good enough. We need to make our chances count - if you don`t shoot you don`t score.`

Speaking about the fans showing their displeasure by booing the team at the end of the whistle on Saturday, Rhys said, 'The booing doesn`t help it just makes the players cautious. When the jeers come from the crowd, that`s when players don`t want to make mistakes and get on the ball. They don`t want to get hammered by the crowd. It is vitally important the fans get behind us and stick with the team.`

Rhys probably won`t know this but shooting on sight was what we were doing at the start of the season when we were in the top three. Why we stopped doing this I have no idea. And, I can`t agree more with him about the booing.

I agree 100% with Rhys, 'knock a man out when he's down why don't yer.' The players want boosting, not booing!!
