RUFC - Do You Believe?

RUFC - Do You Believe?

Rotherham United will start next season back where they belong - in Rotherham.

OK, the ground name of 'New York' might be a little pretentious for a League Two club but, with the looks of the squad that Millers Manager, Steve Evans, is building, I really have started to believe that we might well end up in the Championship within two years.

Being somewhat dismayed and bemused by the appointment of Evans I honestly thought we, as fans, were going to be in for a rough ride - but, to my surprise, but much more to my delight, this forty-nine year old with, shall we say, a chequered past, has won me over like no other manager has done for many years.

A former striker, like a magician he appeared in a cloud that he quickly cleared and is now pulling rabbits from hats by signing players who could easily have gone on to play in one or two leagues above from where we are.

Yes, the new stadium may have a lot to do with it. But, for me, Evans himself has worked non-stop being manager, persuader, informant, tour guide and probably, though I don't know this, taxi driver in bringing in these players.

And, something which is new to us Millers fans of many years, he is also keeping us informed of happenings. And the man never seems to give up. For instance, even he seemed to think that the Scott Shearer deal was 'dead in the water' but then, out of the hat, he produces the former Crawley 'keeper. For years the fans seem to have been an 'after thought' with some of our managers - people they've had to put up with. Then in comes this Scotsman who tears down all the barriers and actually invites fans in for a look at training and a cuppa.

He's a man who speaks his mind and doesn't seem to care who hears it.

Is he god? Well, no, probably not, but he's certainly up there. Does he deserve a knighthood? Well, again, probably not - yet. Have we all changed our minds about him? Well, I would think so.

This is a man who has brought Ian Sharps back - now, if he could find his way to fetching Alan Lee, Bobby Williamson and Dave Watson back - that really would be a miracle.

So take a breath, Steve Evans, give yourself a pat on the back because you are the Millers Magician.
