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

RUFC - View From The Opposition - Notts County

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans said that from start to finish his teams performance was absolutely fantastic after they beat League One side Notts County to go through to the next round of the FA Cup last night.

Meanwhile County Manager Keith Curle wasn't as impressed with his side.

Speaking to Radio Nottingham after the three-nil defeat Curle said, 'The easiest thing I could do is go in there (to the dressing room) and lay the law down and start pointing fingers to make myself feel better.

'The result is down to me because when I first came in I said all the accolades, all the positives the players get, all the negatives I'll take on board. But we need to get back to basics and players need to know their responsibilities but they have to play with a smile on their faces.

'We have to take the positives. We were down to ten men, we re-grouped and re-shuffled. We made the substitutions at half-time and didn't concede after half-time. But I expected that because the instructions were not to lose the second half.

'It's important now until January that the players have exactly the same beliefs that they had when I first came into the job.'

I don't know about 'not losing the second half' I think Mr Curle has a lot to thank his goalkeeper Liam Mitchell for last night - it could easily have been a cricket score without him.

i would like to know just how many straws mr curle has just grabbed hold of, but i would bet it is a lot smaller number than the number of goals we could have scored we should have won 8-0 but could have won by more , so stop the crap mr curle and give us the praise we never get , millers were good , notts were poor but you only played as good as we let you

Yes, it's alright having a smile on your face, but it won't last long if they play like they did against us all the time
