RUFC - Not all singing from the same Hymn Sheet?

Join The Vital Debate

Rotherham United Chief Operating Officer, Paul Douglas told Radio Sheffield yesterday that the next signing would be the last over the summer.

The Millers were near to signing a striker over the weekend but he came back saying he had been offered a better deal elsewhere and was asking the Millers to match this. With the player having already agreed a deal with the un-named striker, Manager, Steve Evans told him, in no uncertain terms, to get on his bike.

With that the Millers boss has moved onto another striker with Mr Douglas saying, 'From the outset Steve has been consistent in the squad he was looking for which, compared to previous seasons, is a smaller squad but it has a higher calibre of individuals. So, unless there are injuries, I don`t see there being anymore business after we bring this next striker in.`

This, actually, is not what the management duo of Evans and Raynor have been saying recently. Both of them have gone on record saying the club is keen to sign another defender and midfielder.

So, I`m wondering, why Paul Douglas has now said that the next striker we sign will be the last signing of the summer.

Have we seen a chink in the Evans/Douglas/Stewart armour here? Since Steve Evans joined the Millers all three have had nothing but praise for each other - so why on Sunday did the Manager talk about having identified a defender and midfielder and talks were ongoing while the Chief Operating Officer, twenty-four hours later, (who we know deals with all the paperwork) seems to think otherwise?

Perhaps the 'hymn sheet` wasn`t passed on?
