'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC Fans Trying to help!

I know it was Groundhog Day on the second of February, but here we are, 1st weekend of the month and there`s no game. Is it FA cup round 3 and we`re back to January? Well no, not this time. It`s that old devil called snow again. Thought we`d got away with it this winter. So what do we have this weekend if no on field antics to get teeth in to?

Well, there`s this weeks comments from Mr Scott for a start. As reported by Herringthorpe, our manager feels the fans negativity doesn`t help. Well pardon me but is it chicken or egg? We were told at the beginning of the season that this team is capable of automatic promotion and they promised so much in the first month. But we disappeared from the cup competitions, saw an awful run of games where we couldn`t buy a win and clawed back in to contention. Feeling a couple of wins over Christmas could see us back on the edge of the play offs, we have faded again. Players have come as the manager`s signings…and gone. Chris Holroyd hardly got a game and has gone to a higher division to ply his trade. We`ve been reduced to having only 2 strikers left on the books. Marcus Marshall has gone and we have Cadogan on the wing or next week filling in as full back? Brett Williams is back to his parent club with barely a full game and few starts under his belt with us. We`ve had keepers in on loan and you know they`re different to Warrington in style but are they better. I firmly believe Rhys Taylor is going to be a good player for years to come and needs a grounding to get there. So what happens at the end of the season when he`s gone back, Warrington is not offered a new contract (don`t think I`d re sign even if I was offered, if I was him) and we need another keeper

The chairman appears to have backed his manager with all his signings and yet… Since the sale of Le Fondre, have we bought anyone? Holroyd went for "an undisclosed fee" with no replacement. Now, does the chairman, at this stage of the season not fancy his managers choices if, he`s asked for any?

The last point is personal. In a community like Rotherham, the club is a major part of it. The previous manager was rarely out of the "Advertiser", presenting cheques on behalf of this or that, or attending school presentation evening. Why don`t we see as much of Mr Scott or the players bringing the club back to the community?

So Mr Scott, if we`re negative, do we have reason. String some results together and give us some positives to hang our red n white hats on. Let`s see a flourish to the end of the season and a team to shout about when we return to Rotherham. The fans are loyal and forgiving if they think the club`s going in a positive way as I hope sincerely that he`ll find out with the next run of victories.

Amen. We really do need to go into the new stadium with a team who can get victories - here's hoping that starts sooner rather than later
