RUFC Confused becomes clear...now

RUFC Confused becomes clear...now

My good friend Herringthorpe will verify that the article below was written yesterday, to be published this evening. Following the events that happened earlier, we wondered whether to publish. But hey! We all have an opinion. Looking to the future, the chairman knows the next appointment is vital. Listening tonight to BBC Radio Sheffield he didn`t sound his usual confident, assured self. I hope that returns soon. He`s done a fantastic job so far with the stadium and if his managerial choices have proved wrong, he`s always backed his selections in their choices of back room staff and players. Seems like a chairman to cherish for a manager (but beware the ides of March as Shakespeare said). Come on Tony, you were wrong last time, get it right this!

I made a point in Tuesday night`s match report that, at one stage, we had a back 3 of Mullins, Bradley and Wood. There we had two "midfield" players and one "defender" per the official Millers site defending. Saturday we started with a similar situation. We also had Lewis Grabban taking corners. If this had been worked on in training, it was well disguised. After the game, the manager bemoaned the lack of quality balls being put in and highlighted Kieron Cadoggan putting a quality cross in.

Andy Warrington has been a stalwart when called on this season and yet he`s been second fiddle to two loan keepers. I accept that no one could have foreseen the injury to Jamie Annerson, but would Jamie have been No1? Is Andy Warrington that bad and has he diminished in form so far from the player we saw last season? Rhys Taylor is fantastic and this is no criticism of him. We have tied up a loan berth when we may need another position.



Square pegs fit best in square holes. Your top scoring striker should be getting on the end of corners, not over hitting them. (Wonder if he was trying to make a point?) Caddogan can only get crosses in if he`s on the field, not warming the bench. Tactical twists are fantastic if they come off! If they don`t what happens? You end up in mid table having shown much promise at the start of the season. For too long we`ve heard that things go well on the training pitch…but not on Saturday. I, same as Herringthorpe, will not be singing "Scott Out" but please show us some clear, rational strategies. We want to buy in to what`s happening at our club.



What happens next? Lionel Messi comes in as a loanee to the end of the season. And fills in at full back!

Yes, as an afterthought this should have gone out last night but we did wonder if we were being a little harsh - obviously not!
