  1. Career threads Rotherham have had a popular following so far over in the FM Career Update forum and here are some of the threads: Jupjamies Rotherham Thread johnstonpickles Rotherham Thread SpillBloods Rotherham Thread What's interesting is we're all using different saves and bringing in different players so if you're interested in making a Rotherham save then here's some options for you to check out. Johnstonpickle is using wingbacks for instance and it's working well for him. If you make a Rotherham thread let me know and I can add it to the list. Cheers for reading and I hope you try a save with The Millers.
  2. The Squad u Goalkeepers First Choice: Lee Camp Backup: Lewis Price. Rating: 5/5 My opinion: For a relegation battle you can't ask for much more. You have a solid goalkeeper in Camp who be relied upon and Price is pretty good for a backup who could push for Camps jersey if he is out of form. Defenders First Choice: Mattock - Fry - Broadfoot - Fisher. Backup: Belaid - Wilson - Ball - Halford Rating: 4/5 My opinion: Belaid will be a starter when back but he's injured. You start with one fit left back so it's a position you could strengthen. You can play Kelly as backup for Mattock until Belaid is back and fit. You have three right backs really in Halford(and his long throw), Kelly and Fisher. I'd choose Fisher to try and get him to fulfill his potentail though Halford is a solid choice. They're all good enough apart from Wood for a relegation battle and you have depth. Just not for the LB slot. Midfielders First Choice: Newell - Frecklington - Adeyemi - Taylor. Backup: Izzy - Vaulks - Forster-Caskey - Forde Rating: 4/5 My opinion: You have a strong midfield and it's where Stubbs brought in most of his recruits. You lack another wide player though. Only Newell is really a left winger and I'd highly suggest Gregory Nelson to play there. You have a strong midfield option with Halford and Ball able to play backup as a DM to Adeyemi and have options on the right. I just think the squad lacks the extra wide left player. Strikers First Choice: Danny Ward Backup: Izzy Brown, Dexter Blackstock Rating: 2/5 My opinion: Weakest area of the squad. Ward will be first choice but has problems with injury. Blackstock isn't the best option and is on a 3 year contract and Izzy Brown isn't a natural striker. For my first season I played with one uptop due to the strength in midfield but it's an area where Rotherham are lacking. In real life we've just signed Peter Odemwingie and in game that would be brilliant for us but it's where we lack and need an extra man. Overall opinion: There is a core for a season even if some are ageing players. We have a stronger defense and midfield this season we just need those players to perform. In real life at the moment of this post Kenny Jackett has just taken charge after Stubbs had 6 points after 13 games. Can you get the lads to perform better than Stubbs could? Frecklington is always key for me and he should always be starting. You have Smallwood and Thorpe out on loan and I'd highly suggest keeping Smallwood as he'll be the type of player you want for season 2. The Tactic I won't be posting any pictures but any formation that has a 3 man midfield, two wingers and a striker will help play to Rotherhams strengths. The Bank Season one will be a struggle in terms of having a positive balance. When you hit Season 2 you should make enough cash from staying in the Championship to start bringing in some new players to build a core for the future. I'd suggest trying to find a parent club to bring in some money and free loans in positions you need. My board couldn't find me a parent club but if could be different for you.
  3. Club Information Founded in 1884, Rotherham United are a football club based in South Yorkshire who play in the Sky Bet Championship. The clubs nickname is The Millers. The current Chairman is the great Tony Stewart who without his support Rotherham could of ceased to of been a club due to financial trouble. They currently play at the New York Stadium which was opened in July 2012 and has the capacity of 12,021. The Stadium cost £20 million to build. The Stadium is set up as this; North Stand - known as the KCM Recycling Stand for sponsorship reasons, and often referred to as the New Tivoli, is the kop stand of the stadium. The KCM Recycling Stand holds 2000 home fans, and has the lettering of the club's initials—RUFC—in white across it. The stand sits behind one of the goals, opposite the away end. West Stand - known as the Eric Twigg Pukka Pies Stand for sponsorship reasons, is the main stand of the stadium. It features the executive 1925 Lounge, and also the stand where the players walk under when entering the field of play. It holds 4000 home fans. East Stand - East Stand, known as the Ben Bennett Stand, is the family stand of the stadium. It holds 4000 home fans, as well as two built-in balcony-type structures for disabled people. South Stand- South Stand, known as the Morrison Stand, is a 2000 seated away stand. It sits behind a goal, with the family stand to the right, main stand to the left, and the kop directly opposite. Realistically your goal in the first season is to avoid relegation, the setup as follows. The Staff There's more backroom staff then last season but the club is lacking scouts since Gee Evans departure. I'd look to bring in Derek Langley to fill this position. Alot of teams try to poach U18 Physio Adrian Littlejohn so it might be worth looking elsewhere. For this I found a physio happy to sign for the U18s in Becky Dunphy. There are others but she's a cheap wage and not alot will come to be apart of the youth setup. You will be carrying on the job that Warnock left at the end of last season. You have a different squad(mostly) that Alan Stubbs has made. Can you bring any success with it?
  4. Pre Season + August Pre-season went well, we lost 3 - 0 down Wien but it was such a weird game. We were dominating them, they countered and scored and we crumbled. We picked ourselves up afterwards though. Away - MK Dons Pre-match Good enough pre-season and I know it'll take time for the lads to gel. But hoping for a good result to start the campaign. First half It's 1 - 0 Rotherham in 9 minutes! We counter and Smallwood hits a ball up, I'm thinking what he's done here? Le Fondre takes it down brilliantly, plays it to Murphy who bursts forward and sets up Taylor to smash in. Half time! Second half It's 1 - 1 and we concede the normal way. Corner comes in, flicked on and Aneke is at the back post to hit in. 30 minutes to go, Newell, Vaulks and Ward on. Alfie, Hyndman and Smallwood off. It's 2 - 1 to Rotherham! Hendrie plays the ball down to Murphy whos pace is too much and he centers for Ward to hit in! Full time! Post-match Good win considering at times we were second best. Murphy and Taylor were quality. So was Ball at the back tbh. Away - ELF Cup 1st Round - Notts County Pre-match "Backups and youth". I'd like to win a cup game this year though ^_^. First half 1 - 0 Rotherham in the 13th minute. Some good passing and McQueen plays in Alfie who slots in the corner. Half time. Switching to 4 - 4 - 2. Second half 30 minutes left and Blackstock, Nmecha and Vaulks come on for Newell, Alfie and Hinds. Full time. Post-match Felt like we were in second gear but it's early days yet. Should be a good test. Home - Derby County Pre-match Grayson stays we're not good enough to stay up, we'll see! First half Nothing happened at all. Half time. Second half Awful from Rotherham. Awful. Between Fisher and Smallwood none of them can win the ball of Ince and they enough tries. Ince crosses and Bryson hits in. We gotta change this. Going 4 - 4 - 2 with Alfie and Newell coming on for Hyndman and Murphy. Last 10 minutes we're just going to go for it. It's 1 - 1 in the 86th minute! Corner gets headed out to Fisher, he passes to Smallwood who makes a brilliant pass over to Newell. He crosses and Taylor hits in! Derby went very close! Martin volleys it from just outside the area and smashes the crossbar and we manage to clear! Full time! Post-match Draw is a good result, I'll take it. Positive when we went attacking. Glad to see that. Away - Reading Pre-match Newell and Alfie start. Ward and Hyndman go to the bench. I'll slightly altered our mentally to play a bit slower and hold our shape more. First half It's 1 - 0 Rotherham! Ball is cleared from a corner but Alfie gets to it takes on his man and sets up Newell who drills low from the edge of the box after 24 minutes. Should be 2 - 0! Taylor collects Murphys cross but hits straight at the keeper. Taylor has a knock so on comes Forde at half time. Second half Belaid comes on for Hendrie with 30 minutes to go. It's 1 - 1. Rakels hits in Zuculinis through ball. Garratt messed up trying to save that. Last 10 minutes Ward on for Alfie and attacking 4 - 3 - 3. Garratt makes a good save to deny Reading going 2 - 1 up. Full time! Post-match I'm going to change our tactic back and second half was all Reading but away I'll take a draw for sure. Away - Scunthorpe Pre-match Rotating squad, give others a chance as nothing is set in stone. Only Ball and Garratt remain. I'd quite like to win this! They're bottom of the league losing all 3 games. First half Too close. Scunthorpe cross and volley it and it hits the bar! Could of gone in that. Half time and we've been the best team, we just gotta make it count. Belaid comes off for McCarthy, don't trust the yellow card. Second half 1 - 0 to Rotherham in the 46th minute. Fordes freekick hits the wall but it bounces to Kasim who unleashes it into the back of the net. It's 2 - 0 in the 63rd. Vaulks long throw headed by McCarthy and headed in by Ball. Should of been 3. McQueen does brilliant and his pass into the box is asking for Ward to get onto it, maybe if I had a proper strike they would of. Scunthorpe go down the other end and Garratt makes a great save! Murphy comes on for Forde and Alfie comes on for Danny Ward for the last 25 minutes. It's 2 - 1 in the 75th minute. Out midfielders are too sloppy with the ball and Scunthorpe counter, we can tackle and we don't. It's 2 - 2! What are we playing it! This game was done and we're throwing it away. Mattock misses the challenge, cross comes in, bounces off McCarthy to set up Madden. We have to go for this! Full time. Post-match We threw this away and it's annoyed me. We were the better side and then we just fell apart and let Scunthorpe come at us. I need to figure out why sometimes we do not make those tackles when we can. I've set the "get stuck in" instruction to try and see if it'll make a difference. Home - EFL Cup 2nd Round - West Bromwich Albion Pre-match Aslong as we enjoy ourselves and the fans have a good day, that's all that matters for this one. I imagine Domenico Berardi will tear us apart. First half Wow that's close. Kasim takes a freekick and smashes the bar, thought it was in! Oh can we defend! It's 1 - 0 to WBA. McClean takes on Fisher AND Murphy at the same time, crosses in and Roberts heads in. Half time. We're playing well enough I have to admit. Fisher comes off for McCarthy who wasn't playing well. Second half It's 1 - 1 in the 60th minute! Hendrie throws to Alfie who centers to Murphy. He smashes it and it comes back down off the bar, it isn't cleared and from the tighest of angles Smallwood puts it in! Alfie and Murphy come off to be replaced by Forde and Ward for the last 20 minutes. End of 90 minutes! Extra time first half Depends who scores next for this one. Can only see 1 goal. WBA have it, Hendrie misses the tackle and lets in McManaman to cross. Campbell loses his marker and knocks it in. Extra time second half Nothing much happens and it's over. Post-match We were the better team, honestly. We're not taking any sort of chance and perhaps I do need another striker. Home - Cardiff City Pre-match A couple of changes but if we play aswell as we did against WBA and take our chances, we'll give them a game. I've gone for more direct passing rather then mixed/retain. First half It's 1 - 0 to Cardiff in the 9th minute. Smallwoods tackle isn't good enough and they're able to create a chance from it. Pikington sets up Immers who smashes in. It's a red card! Aron Gunnarsson flies in a with a two footed tackle and he gets his marching orders in the 13th minute. Can we take advantage? Half time and Kasim is making way for Alfie and Forde on for Murphy and going 4 - 4 - 2. Second half Should be 1 - 1! Good play from Rotherham and a cross lands to Forde and he heads over! Frecks comes on for Smallwood, see if he can make the difference. Route one for 10 minutes, wake up Rotherham! 10 shots, 0 on target. It should be 2 - 0. Gounongbe gets on the end of a corner and somehow heads over. It's full time. Post-match Fuming, we missed more good chances. I'm buying a striker, this isn't working. Here's my striker! Can he do the business? We'll see! September Home - Fulham Pre-match Will be a hard game but with Taylor back we'll have a bigger chance. Frecks and Ball are out but Newell and Belaid come in. Ward goes AML and Keane uptop. First half It's all too easy for Fulham and they should be 1 - 0 up but somehow hit wide. Close to being 1 - 0 to Rotherham. Kasims header hits the bar! Half time and we're dominating the match, we just need a goal. Second half Belaid goes to LB and McCarthy comes on for Mattock. Fulham hit the bar! Freekick comes in, Holding gets up but it's straight onto the bar. Going 4 - 4 - 2 with Kasim making way for Alfie. It's 1 - 0 to Rotherham! We're putting crosses in but Fulham defend well, Wards cross is neat and Le Fondre pokes it in. It's 1 - 1. Woodrow finishes off a good Fulham move with 6 minutes to go. Full time! Post-match Fulham were better so a draw is good. We still need to get some points on the board. Away - Brighton and Hove Albion Pre-match Aslong as we can contain Baldock, I think we can grab a point. I'm going to try and attack though. Brighton are 20th and I feel we have the players to go for it. First half Good team attack from Rotherham and Stockdale has to make a great save to deny Murphy. Half time and some encouragement. Second half 30 minutes to go and McCarthy on for Fisher and Ward on for Murphy. It's 1 - 0 to Rotherham! Kasims long freekick is hit in by Ward, he's just come on! It's full time! Post-match Kasims role was changed to BWM and we looked alot more solid. We played well. Home - Sunderland Pre-match Going to stay attacking, only change is Ward on for Murphy. We're only a point behind Sunderland, let's make it 2 points ahead. First half GGOOOOOAAALLL!!! 21st minute and Kasim smashes in a 25 yard freekick. Damn that was close for Sunderland, good ball into the box and Fisher loses his man but the shot hits the post and Mattock clears! Was nearly 2 - 0 but Ward is just offside! Hendrie on for Mattock at half time. Second half 20 minutes to go and Murphy and Alfie on for Keane and Taylor. It's full time. Post-match Sunderland were the better side but a win is a win. Away - Sheffield Wednesday Pre-match Starting with 4 - 4 - 2 as they seem to be vulnerable to it. Let's see. The Rotherham faithul reckon because Jamaal Lascelles is playing we're going to lose. Little bit random. First half Good play from Sheff Weds and they should of gone 1 - 0 up but they shot wide. Good move again and Garratt saves, it bounces randomly and Hendrie managed to clear. Going to change to attacking but this isn't working imo. Second half We go 1 - 0 down. Jones' freekick straight to Palmer and he centers to Reach. What a miss! Vaulks plays in Keane and he hits wide somehow! Garratt makes a great save to deny a 2 - 0 goal lead! Hooper hits the post and really should of scored. Going to my normal tactic or we're going to get hammered. It's 1 - 1! Taylor crosses and Ward hits in a wonderful move. That's better! Reach has a great chance but nods wide! That could cost them. Oh damn. It's a red card to Kasim. 4 minutes left and it's a very bad challenge. Going 4 - 1 - 2 - 2 with no wingers. If we can hold on I'll be happy. Full time! Post-match 4 - 4 - 2 wasn't the answer and we were lucky to draw, I'll take it 'cus we were second best throughout. Home - Huddersfield Town Pre-match They're 1st and they have Chuba Akpom, team scorer last year and 9 in 9 so far. We'll see how it goes ^_^. They've played 9, won 8, drawn 1. Jason Steele may be a doubt though which is a plus for us. First half It's 1 - 0 to Rotherham in the 13th minute! Keane does brilliant and sets up Hyndman who slots in! Should be 1 - 1, cross comes in and Akpom somehow heads over. Again! Should be 1 - 1 but Akpom hits wide! This time it is 1 - 1. Crawford gets played through and holds the ball up, simple pass across and Van La Parra has an open net to hit into it. Half time, not losing so I'll take that. Second half It's 2 - 1 in the 48th minute! Loves cross is cleared only to Taylor who unleashes a volley, no keeper is saving that. Love gets done and Huddersfield counter, for some reason Bunn tries to score a 30 yard screamer that goes closer to the corner flag. It's 3 - 1 to Rotherham! Newells freekick lands to the feet off Baldwin, he centers to Hyndman who hits in for his second of the day in the 71st minute! 73rd minute Vaulks on for Smallwood and McQueen on for Ward. Nervous it's 3 - 2 in the 88nd minute! Bunn plays in Cappelluzzo, Garratt saves but he hits in the rebound! That was so close! Hyndman hits a 25 yard freekick and Coleman makes a great save to deny. It's full time! Post-match BRILLIANT second half. Hyndman bossed the AP position, I decided RPM wasn't working and that was brilliant. Keane may of not scored yet but he's holding the ball up and winning headers, it's working. First team to beat Huddersfield in 10 games, Rotherham :). Away - Middlesbrough Pre-match I'd take a point. Kind of bad that my player of the season Fry isn't even starting for them. Same lineup from the Huddersfield game. First half Nothing happened, half time. Second half Hinds, McQueen and Alfie on for the last 15 minutes for Keane, Ward and Taylor. I'd take a draw and excactly what I'm looking for. Full time. Post-match Neither team could break each others defense. Draw is fair and the result I wanted away.
  5. Season two The aim here is to build us up to be a mid-table team so we can push on from there. We're tipped to finish 22nd which I think is way off the mark. It's up to me that we prove the bookies wrong. My team Transfers As you can see I've changed the squad. There's alot of youth in the team that even my first interview of the season has pointed on but we need to stop bringing in the journeymen and a build a team that can push up into the premier league. Goalkeepers In: Ben Garratt - Signed for 83k from Crewe. He did well in League 2 with 41 conceded in 44 games with 15 clean sheets. Maybe the Championship is a bit step up for the 23 year old but I feel he's ready and we can get him experience to improve. David Forde - Youth coach and backup goalkeeper. Has experience to be used if need be. Billy O'Brien - A young goalkeeper that was released from Manchester CIty. He's not on the list above but we're in contract talks. He's being signed for a year to sit in the U23s. Out: Lee Camp - Campy wanted 11k a week to stay. It wasn't happening. Lewis Price - Never got a look in, wasn't happy and was effecting morale. Defenders In: Jack Baldwin - Buzzing at this. Only 24 years old and joins Newell and Taylor as a player Rotherham have signed from Peterborough. Plan is to make Baldwin and Ball my main CBs. Feel he'll be around for a few years. Stephen Hendrie - West Ham signed him for £1million but never got a look in. He's only 22 and still has potential. He'll be my starting LB and hopefully the match experience will kickstart his career. Jason McCarthy - Signed as a backup. Interested to see how he does. He will get game time and still has toom to improve. Donald Love - Signed on a year long loan to play backup to Fisher. Out: Stephen Kelly - 3rd choice RB and it wasn't needed. Kirk Broadfoot - Declining, wasn't great last season, wasn't needed. Kelvin Wilson - See I liked Wilson, he played well. But he wanted 8k a week and I said no thanks. Then he wanted 10k a week so I let him go. Greg Halford - 8k a week for a backup player, wasn't needed. Richard Wood - Past it. Tom Thorpe - He did well at Bolton when he actually played but I didn't feel his future was at Rotherham. Midfielders In: Sam McQueen - Left winger on loan. One of those that is a make or break year. Only costing me £500 p/w wages. Jacob Murphy - Left winger. Another one who has potential but we need to get it out of him. Looked really good in pre-season. Yaser Kasim - Played well for Swindon, can he step up? Has re-sale value if he doesn't but I'm sure he'll be a success. Emerson Hyndman - Will be the RPM. Small but very good with the ball at his feet. Hoping he can unlock defenses. Kaylen Hinds - He's a young midfielder release by Arsenal. Is going to be re-trained and has potential. One player to keep an eye on for sure. Out: Chris Dawson - Was never going to make it here so let go. Gregory Nelson - Wasn't any plans to let go but agreed for him to let the club be a stepping stone. With a club like Vitesse coming in and offering £1.3mil I couldn't reject it. He didn't exactly set the world on fire either. Strikers In: Adam Le Fondre - Alfies back, signed as a backup for a year. Looked good in pre-season./ Lukas Nmecha - Youth player who played at Manchester City. Has some potential. See how he goes for a couple of years. Out: Johnson Clarke-Harris - Was never going to stay after I had to watch him at Preston in January this year. Could of probably still done a job but I'd rather look elsewhere. There will possibly still a couple of transfers. I'm still thinking over whether I need another striker.
  6. I've sold one player and not the player I thought people were going to be after. We got a cash injection from TS at the end and then given £5mil a week later so the balance is looking quite good. The summer has been strange. There's usually more frees I feel after the first window but alot of changes have happened. I have alot of younger players in to try and build a team to get into the Prem. Only Smallwood is above 8k and iirc only Ward is above 7. I've trimmed the wage budget due to some silly wages on players E.G Halford on 8k. Camp wanted 11k to re-sign, I replaced him with a goalkeeper on 4.5k p/w. I'll post an update soon. I'm still trying to figure out if I need another CB and ST. ST I probably do. I've got a few in to try and push their potential.
  7. April We've lost Ward :(. He's out for 5 - 6 weeks. That's a huge blow. Can Fletcher step up? Clarke-Harris is back aswell so we've got two fit strikers + Izzy who can play there. He's signed! Just need him to come back from loan now :D. Home - Fulham Pre-match Adeyemi is back! He's going straight into the DM slot. Fulham are in 6th, this will be a hard game. For this one I'm going to put Brown upfront and Taylor on the right. First half How did he miss!? Corner comes in, Fry hits the bar. Ball drops lovely to Wilson and he hits wide! That's close! Forster-Caskey takes a long shot, Button saves the the ball is still under him. Was hoping he was gonna knock it it :D. Half time! Second half So close! Madi isn't marked and free in the midfield. He gets layed off and smashes a long shot. It beats Camp but no the post. 30 minutes left. Fletcher and Vaulks on, Taylor and Adeyemi off. Brown goes RW. 10 minutes left and Clarke-Harris is coming on for Nelson. 3 Strikers, no wingers. Can we get a goal? Full time! Post-match That was poor from both teams really. I'm happy with a draw though. Home - Sheffield Wednesday Pre-match Has to be a win. Tuesday night game. Going to let Fletcher start this and drop Taylor. Newell starts as Frecklington is way too tired for this and he goes to the bench. Glad to see Newell back and fit! First half Abdi makes a huge mistake and Fletcher steals the ball. He runs down and hits the post! He's able to follow it up and put us 1 - 0 up in the 29th minute! Should of been 2. Fletcher does brilliant down the left and crosses for Izzy. Somehow Izzy heads over! It's in! Just. Belaid crosses for Izzy and his headed effort his the bar! It bounces down and in! 2 - 0 to Rotherham in the 43rd minute! Half time. "drab match" is says. It's brilliant for me! Second half 3 - 0!!! Fry of all people makes a brilliant defense splitting pass. Fletcher takes and hits in! 51st minute. Oof, Brown goes close and it was nearly 4! It's 3 - 1! Freekick on the edge of the area, Sheff Weds pass it around and make a gap. Lee is played in and smashes of the bar and in after 57 minutes. 20 mins left Frecks comes on for Newell and Taylor comes on for Nelson with Izzy going on the left. It's 3 - 2! Poor clearence lets Sheff Weds cross the ball again. Reach crosses and Emanuelson heads in! We've been the better side lads, do not throw it away! It's a goal! 4 - 2! Taylors corner is headed in by Tom Lees! Own goal in the 81st minute! 85th minute and it's 4 - 3! Jones' corner is headed in by Loovens. It's Hoopers goal as he stole it on the line! 5 minutes, can we keep the lead? We can do better, it's 5 - 3! Good passing from Rotherham. Forster-Caskey plays a quality ball to Brown who crosses and Taylor heads in! Full time! Post-match What a game! Going so far ahead to nearly throwing it away! Great for the neutrals and for Miller fans! I had to keep him. Fan of Danny Ward! Away - Wigan Atheltic Pre-match They're 24th. They've got -40 GD. Lost 25 of 40 games. But we're playing away so I'm not confident :D. First half Camp! Save! Corner comes in, Le Fondre nods it back in and Reece Burke is there to hit it. Camp dives straight on it to deny. That was brilliant. Wilson misses his header and thanks to Camp it stays 0 - 0 as he denies Grigg. We're struggling! Half time. Going to bring Taylor on for Adeyemi and go 4 - 4 - 2. Second half 39 seconds into the second half and it's 1 -0 to Rotherham. Good passing and Forster-Caskey plays Fletcher in who slots low! 2 - 0 52nd minute. Good passing and great ball from Forster-Caskey to Brown. Brown plays in Fletcher who drills in the top corner. How did he miss!? Quality passing, Fletcher played in and that should of easily been his hat-trick! 15 minutes left. Clarke-Harris comes on for Nelson and Newell on for Frecks. Taylors cross hits the post but no one to get on the end of it. It's 3 - 0 in the 79th minute! Taylor heads in Frys freekick. 4 - 0! Quality cross from Forster-Caskey, it dips lovely for Clarke-Harris who volleys it with sheer power in the 84th minute. Grigg hits the post! He should of scored. Full time. Post-match We were brilliant in the second half! If Wigan play like that... no wonder they're bottom. They were terrible in the second half. No creativity just hoof ball to the strikers that Fry and Wilson had covered. Home - Birmingham City Pre-match They're 22nd and we're at home. I expect 3 points. First half It's all Rotherham but Birmingham go 1 - 0 up. Camp fumbles a freekick, Morrison centers and Maghoma hits in. It's 1 - 1 in the 35th minute. Brown makes an amazing run down the right, centers, no one really gets to it but Nelson is able to just get a touch for it to go in. 36th minute and it's 2 - 1 to Rotherham! Fry hits Forster-Caskeys freekick. Half time. Mattock is coming on for Belaid. Second half 30 minutes to go. Taylor comes on for Fletcher and Newell for Frecks. Nelson plays in Brown and it's a tight angle but Brown shoots and hits way wide. He hade more time there and could of even put it in the middle. Maghoma should of scored really. Played through but his effort it very time and it's full time! Post-match After Camps mistake I'm really happy that we managed to win. We had shots, just not on target. Was a hard game. Away - Reading Pre-match Massive squad rotation as this is a Monday game where Brummy was a Friday night. I'd be happy with a point. First half It's 1 - 0 Reading in 6 minutes. McClearly heads in James' freekick. Should be 2 - 0 but Rakels is offside! Kelly clears off the line and we're getting hammered here. Mattock is injured now aswell. Fletcher comes on for him. We go 4 - 4 - 2 and Kelly goes LB. Half time, we have to play better. Second half Camp makes another mistake. Fosu crosses, Quinn heads and it's straight to Camp but somehow he spills it into his net. 40 minutes left but last two subs. Belaid on for Halford and Forster-Caskey on for Vaulks. Lovely play from Rotherham but Allan should of scored! So close! We counter and Clarke-Harris meets Belaids cross but it's the bar! We're playing so much better, we might find a way back here. It's 2 - 1 in the 64th minute. Fletcher plays through Clarke-Harris and he slots low past Bond. Should be 2 - 2! The balls played back in to Clarke-Harris who has a free header but he heads over. Post-match We played much better in the second half and I needed to rotate the squad but we didn't take our chances and that's dissappointing. Home - Ipswich Town Pre-match Back to my first team squad. Ipswich are 18th and we're at home. I want a win. Just found out Dael Fry is 3rd for avg. rating over the season, quality. First half That was asking for a goal! Fletcher makes a great run and shoots, his shot is wide but Brown looks like he could of got onto the end of it! A chip to Frecks and he should of scored. Fletcher does brilliant but his shot is saved. We're doing so well we just need a goal. It's 1 - 0 to Ipswich though. Webster heads in Bishops corner. It's 2 - 0 to Ipswich! Bishop plays in Pitman and he drills home. It's a penalty to Rotherham! Bishop fouls Fry in the box. Forster-Caskeys penalty is saved again! Half time. Second half 30 minutes left and going 4 - 4 - 2 with 3 subs. Boring half. It's full time. Post-match We were shocking after we conceded. Can't say much else. Away - Preston North End Pre-match Taylor and Newell starting. Fletcher and Forster-Caskey on the bench. First half 1 - 0 to PNE. Newell and Fisher don't tackle Johnson well, he crosses and Doyle scores. Half time. Going 4 - 4 - 2. Second half Nelson comes off for Clarke-Harris in the 60th minute. Kelly on Fisher in the 70th minute. I can't see us scoring! Should of been 2 - 0. Baptiste plays a quality ball up Doyle hits wide. Penalty to Rotherham! Taylor is fouled by McGeady. It's saved! I can't score pens at all! Full time. Post-match Awful. We're playing shocking all of a sudden. G'wan lads! May Home - Derby County Pre-match Just want a good display after our last three games. First half Butterfield should of made it 1 - 0 to Derby but he hits wide! Boring first half. Has to get better. Second half 1 - 0 to Derby. Frecklington wins the ball and loses it straight away. Cross goes in and Wilson finishes. 30 minutes left and going 4 - 4 - 2. Brown and Nelson on for Frecklington and Ward. Russell should of made it 2 but his shot is tame and at Camp. Full time. Post-match Poor game to end the season. Final Table: Season summary To finish 16th I'm really happy about. We have some key players and alot of deadwood. The squad honestly needs a huge overhaul and we have no money so it's going to be very difficult.
  8. He's done really well but it's never felt like it.
  9. February Had to ask this time but my extension is happening. Away - Bristol City Pre-match 14th v 15th. I'd like to win this one for sure. No changes from the Forest game. Just a kick up the arse. First half It's 1 - 0 to Bristol City in the 19th minute. It's all to easy as they pass round and into the box. Gooch passes to Tomlin and all he has to do is knock it in. Half time and we've perhaps the better side but we're not making it count. Vaulks has a knock so on comes Forster-Caskey. Second half Brown cuts in and makes a great run but his shot is just over. A freekick from just outside the area and Forster-Caskey hits it over. Just need that cutting edge. Great ball from Taylor sets up Fletcher but Fielding makes a great save. Close again. Corner is flicked on and Wilson heads at goal but Fielding catches. 20 minutes left, Nelson and Blackstock on for Fletcher and Brown. It's 1 - 1 in the 82nd minute! Forster-Caskey plays through Taylor but Fielding saves. It falls to the path of Nelson who slots in. That's a deserved goal we've battered them in the second half. Full time! Post-match Honestly we should of won that. We were the better team throughout. Home - Blackburn Rovers Pre-match Ward is back and goes straight uptop, Nelson goes to the left. Brown and Fletcher on bench. Blackstock dropped. Forster-Caskey starts and Vaulks goes to the bench. Updated with injury. Adeyemi is out for 5 - 7 weeks and Halford goes DM. They're 23rd and their highest form player has 6.72 over the season, 256th in the league. We should be winning this! First half So close! It's ping pong in the box and Fry knocks it just wide. Close at the other end! A cross comes in, beats Camp and hits the bacj post! We clear off the line! Conway goes for a long shot and Camp has to be equal! Blackburn are not looking like a team who are 23rd! So close! Defense splitting pace and Ward is through, for some reason slows it down so his shot it blocked and Blackburn hack it off the line! Half time, even game. Second half First 5 minutes is all Blackburn as we're gifting them the ball. It's 1 - 0 to Rotherham though! Taylor crosses and Ward hits it in as he's ran clear of his marker in the 50th minute! 60th minute and Vaulks and Izzy on. Halford and Nelson off. Allan is back from injury and replaces Forster-Caskey for the last 10 minutes. Full time! 3 points is 3 points. Post-match Too close for comfort that! Blackburn really are struggling in the league but they really didn't play bad at all and on another day could of won. Home - Huddersfield Town Pre-match Tuesday night game so rotation needed. Fry and Belaid get a much needed rest. With the injuries Richard Wood is getting a rare game. Allan comes in to rest Frecklington. First half Penalty! Mooy fouls Allan just inside the box. I do agree with the Huddersfield fans on this, that is harsh! Forster-Caskey steps up and slots down the middle! 1 - 0 Rotherham. We're playing well and having alot of the possession but I'd like another goal. Wow! Scannell gets played in and hits well wide! Should of been 1 - 1. It's 2 - 0! Forster-Caskey plays in Brown on the right and he hits it in the top corner! Another chance for Huddersfield. The ball drops kindly but Schindler knocks it well wide! Wood is booked so Fry comes on. We're playing well, especially Forster-Caskey! Second half Fletcher should of scored! Huddersfield mess up at the back and Fletcher steals the ball. He gets into the box and shoots straight at Ward! He's not looking great in a Millers shirt, I have to admit. 30 minutes left and Belaid comes on for the booked Mattock and Blackstock comes on for Fletcher. It's 3 - 0! Nice Rotherham team goal. Allan chips a ball up to Nelson. He takes down and does his marker. He centers the ball to Blackstock who pokes in. 3 - 1! Ball played down the left to Booty and he crosses in where Scannell gets free of his marker and heads in after 71 minutes. Full time! Post-match Never expected a win, really happy with that. It was the Forster-Caskey show. Our home form is a good one. Away - Cardiff City Pre-match Belaid and Fry are restored to the starting lineup. Ward starts uptop with Blackstock and Fletcher on the bench. Brown and Nelson on the wings. I'd like to get a draw here, a win would be amazing. First half 7 minutes in and it's 1 - 0 to Cardiff. Richards runs down the right and crosses in where Noone is free down the left to hit in. How did he miss!? Nelson does brilliant, takes on his man and slips a ball through to Ward. He somehow hits the post! Nearly 2 - 0. Zohone wins the aerial battle but his effort hits the bar! Hair-dryer time, we've been poor. Second half 30 minutes left and I'm going 4 - 4 - 2. Fletcher, Blackstock and Frecks on. Vaulks, Allan and Ward off. Full time. Post-match Dull game. Poor game. AWOL attack/midfield. Got to let them know I'm not happy with that display. Fans that have travelled down to South Wales for that. I've triggered Newells contract clause so he's with us for another year. We're missing that lad in midfield. Another week or so and he should be back. Injury! Blackstock it out for 2 - 3 months! Good job Fletcher came in! Away - Brentford Pre-match Taylor and Frecklington restored. Going to try something different. Ward on the left, Taylor on the right and Fletcher upfront. I really want Fletcher to become good. Fisher is starting at RB. I'd like him to make that role his own but he just seems to keep getting booked. First half So close! We pass really well, waiting for an opening. Ward cuts in and sets up Taylor but his shot is saved. It's a goal! 1 - 0 to Rotherham in the 13th minute. A neat one-two with Frecklington lets Ward free down the left. Ball is crossed in to Fletcher but Barbet cuts out.. straight into his own net! So close. An FM favourite of my Duelund takes a freekick just outside the box, I thought it was in for a second! Half time. Second half 30 minutes left and the attack is a bit stale. Izzy and Nelson come on for Taylor and Fletcher with Ward going uptop. It's 1 - 1. Judge takes the corner, Duelund flicks in and Dean nods in after 65 minutes. Allan is coming on to replace Vaulks and we're going to make a 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 formation. Should of made it 2 to Rotherham. Nelsons low cross to Brown should of been an easy goal but it's straight at the keeper. Oh come on. It's 2 - 1 Brentford. You'll never see as bad of a pass as that. Under no pressure with midfielders round him, Frecklington tries to pass it back about 60 yards to Camp but his pass just sets up Hofmann to make it 2 - 1. 10 minutes left and going attacking. Jeez. 3 - 1 to Brentford. Cross comes in and Fry heads it back to Colin. Judge crosses and Kaikai heads in. We've gifted them two goals when we should of gone ahead. Full time. Post-match I'd of been happy with a draw but we threw that game away. Went mental at the lads. March Home - Aston Villa Pre-match If we don't get hammered, I'll be happy. Halford is going DM as Vaulks isn't performing there. Brown uptop with Nelson and Taylor on the wings. Newell makes the bench. Frecklington and Forster-Caskey switch roles. First half Should be 1 - 0 to Rotherham. Good move lets Forster-Caskey free but he hits it well wide. It's half time and it's all Rotherham. We just need the cutting edge. Second half It is 1 - 0! Fisher crosses in and Brown gets across to knock it in after 56 minutes. 2 - 0! Forster-Caskey crossees from the left and Taylor rises to nod in the 62nd minute. 66th minute and it's 2 - 1! Grealish puts in the corner, Jedinak nods towards goal and Chester hits in. 3 subs. Newell, Allan and Ward on. Halford, Frecklington and Nelson off. Full time! Post-match Now that's better. We're alot better at home then we are away and we showed that with a very good display and win vs the league leaders. Home - Brighton and Hove Albion Pre-match Forster-Caskey can't play against his parent club. Newell picked up a knock but Vaulks is ready to play. Tuesday night game, any points will be a plus. First half 1 - 0 to Rotherham after 5 minutes! Great counter and Nelson runs down the left and plays through Brown. Brown slots in the corner to take the lead. 2 - 0! 10 minutes in and Frecklington plays a sweet ball through to Brown who takes it on and hits in! Should be 2 - 1! Lucas Joao is free on the left but somehow hits it wide. It is 2 - 1 after 15 minutes. Skalak corner, Dunk nods on and Baldock nods in. Could of been 2 - 2 but Camp makes a great save to deny Baldock. Another great save from Camp to deny Baldock as Camp tips on the bar. Brighton are pushing and we're struggling. Half time! Second half A Brighton freekick, ball whipped in and falls kindly to Joao but his shot is tame and into Camps hands. I was about to make 3 subs but it's 3 - 1! All the players made the goal. Vaulks to Nelson, Nelson sets up Taylor and Taylor hits in! 15 minutes left, Kelly, Wood and Allan on. Fry, Vaulks and Fisher off. The defenders have yellow cards and I have that extra goal so I feel like I have a cushion. Before the subs go in.. it's 3 - 2! March crosses and Murray hits in. This is a horrible game! Penalty! Frecklington is fouled and ref points to spot! Nelson steps up and smashes it into the top corner, the keeper wasn't getting anywhere near that! 81st minute and 4 - 2. 4 - 3! Good move from Brighton and Murray nods on to set up March who slots in after 84 minutes. Full time! Post-match What a game for the neutrals! Not for me! ^_^. Good win though, very good. Away - Wolverhampton Wanderers Pre-match Only change from the Brighton game is Forster-Caskey back in for Vaulks. A point would be nice. Being away will make it a struggle. First half Wolves should be 1 - 0 up. Great defense splitting pass to Enobakhare but somehow he smashes it wide. It's 1 - 0 to Rotherham! 22nd minute. Nelson passes to Brown. He holds the ball up and plays in Frecklington who shoots low from just outside the area into the bottom corner. Should be 1 - 1! Brilliant Wolves move deserved a goal, but the shot was tame. Again should be 1 - 1. Taylor loses the ball and Wolves counter. They get themselves in a good position but somehow shoot wide! It's half time and we're lucky to be leading. Second half 47th minute 1 - 1. Throw in, played back. Iorfa crosses and Hause heads in. 30 minutes left. Broadfoot on for Fry and Ward on for Nelson. Going to switch Ward and Brown. Good team move from Rotherham ends up with Brown having a very bad shot. He may aswell of passed it to the Wolves keeper. It's 2 - 1 to Rotherham! Freekick from Forster-Caskey pinged over to Fisher. Fisher centers low and Ward hits in! Lonergan got a hand to it but wasn't enough. It's 2 - 2. Fisher gets caught out and Wolves counter. Hause crosses and Helder Costa hits in. 10 minutes left going to bring on Fletcher for Taylor who's had another quiet game. Brown and Ward on wings. He should of scored! Long throw in, Wilson controls and passes to Broadfoot. He waits and plays in Fletcher but Fletcher somehow messed up the shot and straight to Lonergan! Full time. Post-match Happy with a draw for sure but Fletcher could of won that game for us. Away - Queens Park Rangers Pre-match Halford goes to the bench and Vaulks is going DM. Ward uptop and Izzy is going on the right. Taylor has to be dropped he's out of form. Going to give Belaid a rest and give Mattock a game. Belaid has made the LB spot his own since his return. Any point will do. QPR are second and Sebastian Polter is the top scorer of the dvision. First half That's a close one! Good passing from QPR and Chery unleashes one. Camp manages to get a hand to it. That had some power behind it! 1 - 0 QPR. Chery whps in the freekick and my 5'9 winger is trying to defend vs their 6'4 CB. So Hall wins the aerial battle and nods it in. Penalty! We whip in a freekick and Sandro fouls Izzy! Forster-Caskey steps up and.. it's saved! Half time. We're not doing too bad considering the first 25 minutes it was all QPR. Give the lads an encouragement. Second half Strange pass into the back of Wilsons legs by Fry sets up Poltier but he hits well wide. Going to go 4 - 4 - 2 for 25 minutes. Allan and Fletcher on, Vaulks and Forster-Caskey off. It's 1 - 1 in the 73rd minute! Fletcher scores!! Good passing from Brown and Allan. Ward plays it through and Fletcher hits in! Ohhh it's 2 - 1 to Rotherham! Allan plays a great ball over to Izzy. Izzy crosses and Nelson is at the back post to hit in! 74th minute! Meh what was that it's 2 - 2. Perch miss hits his cross so Camp has to get down to stop. He can only get a fingertip to it and Yeni Ngbakoto is there waiting to knock in after 83 mins. Can any team get a winner? Good team move from us in the 88th minute but Fletchers shot is saved. It's full time! Post-match Really happy with a point. We were close to winning away from home and coming from behind makes it all better. It's been a very good month and we're sat in 13th! We won an award! Go on Izzy!
  10. Ouch that's a harsh month but you'll bounce back! What is Taylor value for your out of curiosity? He's worth 4.9mil for me! Can see him being my summer sale to bring me in some resources.
  11. I'd like to make the Rotherham thread again and I'll write it up tomorrow if that's cool .
  12. Good luck! I was thinking of a wingback tactic last night with Newell and Taylor as wingbacks. Not sure how it'd work but was interesting to think about ^_^. Doing well so far :).
  13. Did it after I posted and got a new 2 year contract :). Might have to bring it up in the bug forums when I get home. Not going to be another update 'til Sunday due to work, sad times.
  14. January Away - Leeds United Pre-match We beat them thanks to Newell wonder goal last time. If we get a draw I'll be happy. We have some unfit players and some tired due to the Burton game two days before! First half First 25 minutes haven't been anything to write home about. Neither side passing well. A deflection sets up Nelson on the left side of the box and somehow he smashes it well wide! Wait it's a goal! 25:49! Izzy it tackled the ball falls to Nelson. He smashes low and hard from the edge of the box and it flies in the bottom corner. It's 1 - 0 Rotherham! That should of been 1 - 1. Hadcki Sacko just took the rip out of the Rotherham defence, skinning 2 players but his shot was woeful and flies over. He only had to place it! Half time whistle goes and Rotherham lead! Scrappy game but I'll take it. Encourage the lads for the second half. Second half Leeds go close just after the break. Mattock doesn't defend well and a cross is able to come in. It's cleared but Mattock can't get to the ball and hoofed back in. Meadows heads it but it's tame and straight into Camps gloves. It's 2 - 0 Rotherham in 65th minute! Vaulks send a long throw into the box. Taylor knocks it and Broadfoot smashes it into the back of the net! He's only on due to Wilson being knackered but he's showing why he has the armband today! 59th minute and it's 2 - 1! Under no pressure Fisher hoofs the ball up field. Bridcutt cuts it out and passes to Grimes. Grimes passes through to Meadows who has the best of the defenders and slots home. 30 minutes left and subs time! Using all 3. Blackstock on for Brown. Frecklington on for Adeyemi with Vaulks going DM and Broadfoot going RB as Wilson comes on for Fisher. It's full time! Post-match Best game Nelson has had in a Rotherham shirt. It's like he knew I was writing about him! Broadfoot and Fry were class. Really happy with that display. January 3rd and this comes in :cool:. Transfer outs - Dasilva wants his loan cutting from lack of playing team. He didn't really did anything and Belaid is back so I agreed to it. Ross County have come in for Ball who isn't seeing any of it so best thing to do is let him to go play. Away - Millwall - Fa Cup 3rd Round Pre-match A win would be nice. Blackstock starts uptop. Can he push for a Championship starting stop? Ward is still injured but I've been playing Brown instead. First half Belaid gets himself booked 2 minutes into the game. I don't like that. First 30 minutes have been so scrappy. We haven't had a shot on target! 36th minute it's 1 - 0 to Millwall. Broadfoot heads the ball straight to the wide player, a couple of passes plays in Gregory with both CBs out of position and he knocks it in. That was so poor. Camp makes a good save to deny it being 2 - 0 just before the end of the half. Defense was sleeping. Absolutely need to change this at half time. Going 4 - 4 - 2 with Yates coming on for Broadfoot. Second half Such a scrappy game. Izzy is coming on for Taylor and Fry is coming on for Halford in the 65th minute and I'm going to try play quick attacking football. That's going to be different. We go close in the 68th minute! Corner comes in, it's flicked on and Yates tried to head it in but Archer catches it. Game thinks he should of scored. Yates wasn't in a good enough position to be scoring imo. Newell goes off injured in the 92nd minute. So close in the 93rd! Browns cross is fumbled and hits the post! Looks so close but that's full time. Post-match Not happy with that. The "backup" squad really isn't showing they want to be first teamers. I've lost Newell for 2 months, damn. I need to find a striker. I can't see us staying up if Ward is our only option. Izzy is better on the wing and I'd rather have him there as Taylor is out of form. I'm searching for a senior affilliate to try help with this as wages are a problem. Home - Norwich City Pre-match Let's not get hammered and I'll be happy. Firt half 15 seconds in and Rotherham are 1 - 0 up!!! From the kick off Norwich past backwards and try and play lofted through balls. Twice Ademeyi cuts them out. The second time the ball lands to Frecks who plays through Taylor but he gets tackled. The ball rolls through to Brown who slots in! 15th minute and it's 2 - 0 Rotherham! Adeyemi wins the ball from the Norwich goalkick. From this we pass down the right and a ball gets crossed in. It's not dealt with properly and Brown plays it back to Taylor who knocks in! So close! Vaulks takes a freekick just outside the box and damn I thought it was in. It's red! A second yellow card and Fisher is off. I was waiting for half time but that's his 3rd this season! Halford comes on for Nelson and Forster-Caskey on for Adeyemi due to him being booked. 60 minutes with 10 men, this is going to be hard. Half time whistle goes! Second half It's 3 - 0!!! 49th minute. Halford long throw! Fry flicks it on and Wilson managers to beat Olsson to knock the ball in at the back post. Close! It's a midfield battle and we come out on top. Brown shows some skill and takes on his man, his shot is saved though. 60th minute and it's all Rotherham! 4 - 0! Taylors freekick on the edge of the box is headed in by Fry! 65th minute and 3rd sub used. Mattock on for Belaid as he's been booked. It's 5! 5 - 0! Brown is running with the ball and Howsons tackle sets up Taylor as Klose is switched off and he slots low! It's red! Howson is sent off in the 77th minute for a second yellow after he fouls Frecks! It's 5 - 1! 85th minute and Canos runs down the right, takes on Mattock, takes on Fry and crosses low where Naimsmith hits in. Great run from Canos. Full time. Post-match WHAT. A. RESULT. We were amazing, especially with 10 men! I removed wingers and play with 2 uptop and normal midfield. It really worked! It was Martin Caceres' debut for Norwich. Between him and Klose they were terrible at the back! We couldn't find a senior affliate but we found a feeder in Cliftonville. Better than nothing. Ashley Fletcher has come up as a loan that requires no fee and no wage! Will try and snatch him! Away - Newcastle United Pre-match Same again, let's not get hammered and I'll be happy. First half So close! Vaulks wins the ball and it's played to Brown. He dribbles down past two and unleashes where Darlow has to make a good save to stop. It's 1 - 0 to Newcastle in the 33rd minute. Halford gets skinned and they're able to play the ball around the box. Gamez centers and Aarons hits in at the back post. Nelson cuts in and takes past one and fires one and Darlow has to pull off a great save to stop it going into the top corner! Half time, happy with the display so far. Second half Close again. Belaid wins it back and plays it to Brown down the left. He cuts in and shoots. Darlow has to get down and low to deny. So close! Frecks get tackled by Anita and Newcastle counter. A shot goes off and cannons off a Rotherham player and Fry is able to clear as it's going slowly across the goalmouth. 25 minutes to go and going to drop wingers and see how it pays off. 4 - 1 - 2 - 1 - 2 is my formation for the rest of the game. It's 2 - 0 and goes down to a Fry own goal. Corner comes in and it's flicked on. Mitrovic chests it and hits it. It ping pong balls into the net but it came off Fry last. That's full time. Post-match Very close game and I cannot fault the lads. We had more possesion, shots, same on target we just lacked the cutting edge. Really happy with the display though. Home - Barnsley Pre-match They're 22nd and this is a match we need to win. First half Close! Hourihane whips in a freekick and it's former Miller Aidy White on the end of it. Camp managers to catch it! Close for Rotherham! We hit the post from a freak cross. Post again! Nelson crosses and Adeyemi hits the post. Great save! Bit of a ping pong in the Barnsley box and Taylor recieves the ball, turns and hits it. Adam Davies is able to get down and deny. Winnall takes the ball down from a ball over the top but his shot is a bad one where he should of got it on target. Half time and it's been mostly Rotherham. We should win this! Second half Nothing has happened and with 20 minutes left I've brought on Blackstock, Yates and Halford to play uptop with Brown, Taylor and Nelson making way. We can do it! Final whistle goes. Post-match Winnall should of possibly scored but we still should of won that one. The front three never really turned up. Transfer in - Ashley Fletcher joins us for the rest of the season. That's a coup! Away - Nottingham Forest Pre-match They're doing well, a draw would be a good result. Fletcher goes striaght into the first team with Izzy and Taylor on the wings. First half We're had possession but we're not doing anything with. It's 1 - 0 to Forest. A long throw into the box is headed on and Hobbs knocks in at the back post. 2 - 0 Forest. Kelly is asleep and Ojo takes is down the left and crosses in to Vellios. Shocking so far. Going to try getting the balls down the flanks. Second half Forster-Caskey comes on for Frecks in the 65th minute. Nearly 3 - 0! Corner comes in and flicked on but Kelly clears off the line. 20 minutes left and going to pump ball into the box. Vaulks plays a sweet ball over the top to Fletcher but he knocks wide. Full time. Post-match That was a poor game for us. We scored 5 and then haven't scored in 3 games. Transfer window is over. We brought in Fletcher. Let Dasilva go back and loaned out Yates and Ball. Should be enough for us to stay up. We are currently 15th with 35 points after 29 games. 8 points above the drop. Edit: It's 1st of Feb and they still haven't offered me a contract. Might be a bug.
  15. Think of the money. I lost to Milwall in the FA Cup 3rd round ^_^.
