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

RUFC - Chairman 'the gloves are off'

Rotherham United Chairman Tony Stewart says that the Millers 'need to turn things round.'

Speaking to The Yorkshire Post Mr Stewart explained that he doesn't like playing catch-up and that the club need to be 'pushing ahead and asserting our authority.'

Speaking about Manager Steve Evans being under a stadium ban for six games, the Chairman said, 'We have to adhere by FA rules, but it hasn't helped the club at all. We had this hanging over the club for four months and then the ban, but now it's over and the gloves are off.'

Now hold on a minute here, when Steve Evans was appointed manager the club must have known that a trial was forthcoming, which is something I think they forgot to share with the fans, and whether we think the ban was right or not, it must have been obvious that the gaffer wouldn't be getting off lightly. And, Evans has been with the team until an hour before kick-off, though I am sure his presence has been missed on the touchline, he has got a capable assistant in Paul Raynor. In actual fact in the last six games the Millers have got eight points (won two, drawn two, lost two) while the six before that we got seven points (won two, drawn one, lost three). So, maybe there's something else other than the Manager being missing that's happening down New York way?

Carrying on with the interview, Mr Stewart said, 'I don`t like playing catch-up so we need to turn things round. We need to be pushing ahead and asserting our authority. Steve is gagging to get back involved on match day and with him being back in the dugout can only help our season get going again.

'Steve being back is like our rallying call.'

Let's hope it is - let's hope we aren't expecting too much from the 'big man'.

Maybe the players only want to play well in front of the manager? If not then what's been going on lately? The last few games have been really hard to watch and I've not been enjoying them
