RUFC - O'Connor 'Worst Game For A Long Time'
Rotherham United midfielder Michael O'Connor wouldn't be surprised if he was dropped for tomorrow`s game at Aldershot - disappointed maybe but not surprised.
The twenty-five year old, who joined the Millers in the summer from Scunthorpe, told The Advertiser that he felt sorry for the fans having to witness the 'embarrassment` of the three-nil loss last Saturday at home saying, 'They weren't happy and I could see why because they paid hard earned cash to watch that awful performance.
'From the start we weren't on our game and it just wasn't two or three of us, it was eight or nine of us and when we went two down our heads dropped and, on a personal level, it was the worst game I've played in a long time.`
The Millers travel to Aldershot this weekend who are in the bottom two of the table and Michael said, 'Hopefully I`ll be in the team but if I`m not then I can`t be disappointed because I haven`t been good enough.`
To be fair to Michael he wasn't the only one off his game last Saturday - of the fourteen who played in some part of the game there can only be two or three at the most who can hold their heads up.
I`m not a 'boo-er` at games, I really don`t think it does the players any good, but I could understand the boo`s that rang out at New York last Saturday from the few who had actually stayed in the ground until the end of the game. It was dire. It was embarrassing. As fans all we really ask for is that the team try. But there were very few out there trying to play football on Saturday and it`s very frustrating to see a team, who on paper should probably be walking this league, not even managing to string two passes together for most of the ninety minutes.
Here`s hoping the lads put in a good performance and get their first away win tomorrow.
