I was on holiday last week and on a trip out to a nightclub. We were sat at the side of a couple from Rotherham, when football was mentioned he just couldn't stress enough how in the end Evans had hamstrung the club. I was attempting to defend him but this guy was adamant that he would 'f*!+.. the club up' with crazy mass signings, alienated referees, divided support, players not knowing who was playing one game to the next. Sound familiar?
As the season goes on, I really don't think he is a million miles away in his opinions.
The saddest thing for me is that he has been backed by a thoroughly good man, I just hope his money isn't wasted .
Mr Evans will point of course to 9 promotions and it is difficult to argue against that, however to me at this time, everything seems thrown together and the results and style of play exactly reflect that.
I really hope he proves us all wrong.
Hamstrung the club my arse!! He gave them some of the best days in the clubs recent history. I know a few Rotherham fans and they all maintain if he was still their now they'd still be in the Championship. That includes the chairman Tony Stewart who i see quite a bit through work.
Alright , keep your hair on, I'm only repeating what was said to me. Yes he did get them promotion which I acknowledge earlier in the post, with him having 9 promotions which he tells us, and is hard to go against, however he was very unpopular when he left.
It seems like many of the same trends are being followed here, especially with the number of signings, lack of formation, settled side, playacting to officials, hoof tactics (which has surprised me).
I really wanted him here, and still have some faith, but not as much as I had before. I dearly hope he can get us up but at the moment and for a while before, it is quite clear he doesn't know his best team, or how to play them.
It needs sorting very soon, because the brand of football on display will ensure upper mid table at best, and mid table at worst, not where the investment warrants, for all his veiled leave threats in the summer.
