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

The Opposition View - Rotherham


In the wake of yesterday's 1-0 win over promotion rivals Rotherham United, here are some views on the game from the Millers' manager Ronnie Moore and a few of their fans.

"We deserved something there's no doubt about that," said Moore. "We've given as good as we've got and I think probably just about shaded it."

"I'm disappointed that we haven't got anything, disappointed in the way that we opened up for half an hour, but then I think, for the vast majority we can take some credit away from here in effort and commitment."

"Second half we've come out and dominated."

"What we haven't done is got behind them an awful lot, and we haven't put the knife in. The end product wasn't there, and had it been there, we'd probably win the game."

"We've give it away, then they've broke and they've hit the post because the two wingers cheat, it's simple as that. They don't come back and defend, they just sit in that little pocket and if you don't kill em when you get behind them like we did, they go on the counter attack and you can get done."


The Rotherham fans were disappointed not to have something to show for their side's improved second-half performance.

The following extracts are taken from Millers Mad and Football Forums.

'Poor first half, no outlet upfront being the biggest issue. Wycombe are a very good side who will definitely still be up there at the end of the season. We seemed to lack battle too, which was frustrating. Second half, came out fighting, much better performance, more exciting to watch, better atmosphere. Ryan Taylor had a number of great headers and thought he'd got one in but it was a super save. Ref was awful, didn't let the game flow, inconsistent, favoured Wycombe first half, though did a little better second half.'

'First half, every bit of luck went with Wycombe whose wing play was pretty good. Second half, at least we gave it a shot and credit to the team for picking themselves up.'

'Wycombe were better than us all over the field and we looked very poor.'

'The 1st half was poor from us but Wycombe weren't much better. If we had played like we did in the 2nd half we would have won the game. Wycombe were ok but I don't think they are any better than us.'

'On another day with some luck in the second half we'd have won the game never mind got a point, but why we only show up for half a game is so frustrating. One of those days when we needed a break, oh and a fair ref.'

'Poor first half, but battered them 2nd half and should have got something out of it.'

'It was frustrating to observe the Millers punt the ball uselessly up the field to Le Fondre (consistently out-jumped, unsurprisingly) for the whole of the first half.'

'We weren't getting enough balls into the box. I think Taylor must've won more headers today than he lost - a very high percentage and he was unlucky with the one that their keeper managed to claw onto the bar.'

'Thankfully I only had to travel from Oxford, so at least I didn't waste the entire day. Their goal came from an excellent cross and a great header from an experienced old timer. We came alive a bit in the second half, but Taylor always looked like he was going to get sent off.'

'Funny but annoying - their time-wasting keeper (Nikki Bull) was holding his back and wincing in pain towards the end of the game, and then a minute later he acrobatically kicked the ball out from the top of the netting when it got stuck there........IT'S A MIRACLE CURE FOR BACK TROUBLE, MAYBE I SHOULD TRY IT.'

'1-0 mullering - can't get home quick enough. What's with Le Fondre? Five games without a goal now. He's stopped trying, seems to be believing his own publicity and with today's show of petulance after rightly being subbed (throwing shin pads around, kicking things etc), he seems to be turning into a 'Billy Big Head'.

'We are just so inconsistent. The only saving grace is that there's no Notts Co, Rochdale or Bournemouth who were a cut above the rest last year. Between us, Port Vale, Chesterfield, Wycombe, Shrewsbury and Crewe, I dont think there's much in it at all.'
