RUFC - Should we have tried harder?

RUFC - Should we have tried harder?

Well, that`s over with for the time being. The exciting last day of the transfer window (yawn). Having had to go out during the morning on Tuesday, I expected to come back to a hive of activity and player signings - but there was, as we know, nothing.

Apparently the Millers had two strikers waiting to come in - both, so we hear, deciding to go to other clubs. Then we had couple of 'tentative` leads to follow, which also came to nothing. We did however extend the loan spell of 'keeper Rhys Taylor until the end of the season, but, due to the social networking site, Twitter, we already knew that would happen.

The main thing was, for me, the loss of Brett Williams, the striker we`d had on loan since August from Reading. Whether our budget wouldn`t stretch far enough to keep him until the end of the season or whether the plug was pulled at the other end due to reasons unknown, it hasn`t been made clear.

Worryingly now, from seemingly at the start of the season having more strikers that the coal industry in the mid-eighties, we are down to two. I suppose the good news is that in less than a week the window opens again for emergency loans, but, forgive me if I`ve got this wrong, I understand that you have to prove that you haven`t got cover for an injured player to get an emergency loan? And then, I suppose, the 'powers who be` look at your squad and say, 'you`ve seven defenders, put one of them up front`. Well - probably not, but, this is Rotherham United and it wouldn`t surprise me if that happened.

Should we have tried harder to get another striker in? Or, is the general feeling that two is enough and the other players will be chipping in with goals?

I wonder if Andy Scott is thinking now that he may have been a little hasty in letting Chris Holroyd go?

Because, I am.
