That was a poor performance. Can't wait for hooper and FF to be back in team.

Disagree with the OP. Rotherham sat back and made it hard for us. We had 68% possession, 23 shots and 6 on target. 

 

 

My main criticism is that we are not clinical in the box. We did deserve to win however.

We are just a bit ponderous. 

 

Have the the right idea, but too often lack the execution.

Biggest problems, lack of movement in central midfield and up front, lack of vision/intuition.

Making the game flat, and boring was the aim of both Rotherham and the Referee. I don't think there was ever gonna be able to be a free flowing game of football today with that ref. 

 

A wins a win, and we are back in the play offs.

We created absolutely nothing.

It was a frustrating watch that's for sure. Stop start thanks to the ref, Rotherham were only interested in crocking our creative players and once we ended up with Hutch and Jones as the central midfield pairing you knew we'd lack creativity. So many of our attacks followed the same pattern - try to play in Wallace down the right, Rotherham weren't worried about the middle so could afford to close him down, at which point he'd lay it off to Palmer who would lose the ball because his end product is abysmal. 

 

We need upgrades in the full back positions, we need to alleviate the mifield injuries so we can look threatening down the middle as well as on the wings, and we need to use the left hand sife more as Adam Reach is an excellent player and must have been so frustrated watching Palmer and Wallace running into brick walls time after time. 

 

That said, I'm not as appalled by some are today by our performance. I said after the Reading game that by hook or by crook Carlos needed to deliver six points from these derbies, he has and I'm delighted. Games against Rotherham and Barnsley aren't easy to navigate - they'll always be more up for it than we are and will often look to negate us. We dealt with it this season where we wouldn't have done in years past. 

 

We go into the festive season nicely poised in sixth and that'll give me a merry Christmas.

Not just FF but weve lost Lee, Bannan, Hunt, Hooper and Buckley. 

 

I thought Rotherham might've nicked it. I think Hutchinson made a cracking last ditch tackle on the break to block a shot from Ward.

Before people criticise too much, remember:

 

1) Derby match so form book goes out of the window

2) Bloody Rotherham, it's not like Barnsley where the 3 points is almost a gimme. It's 36 years since we last beat Rotherham at Hillsborough

 

Under those circumstances I'll cheerfully take the 3 points no matter which way they came.

 

Onwards and upwards.

Winning when you're crocked and off form is a good sign yeah?

 

Id have been as critical and frustrated as anyone had we lost but we got through. We need to keep positive

We did get the 3 points, but what a rubbish, flat performance - we look lost without forestieri. 

 

 

 

We look worse when half our first team is missing through injury/suspension - wow, what a shocker!

 

Did we not just win? Are we not in 6th place? Even 7th if Brum get a result isn't shabby.

 

We are not going to win every game 4-0 - accept it or go and support a team that does!

Was poor today, but you take the points and move on. We've played well this season and got nothing from games. 

 

Couldn't understand the Rotherham anti football tactics. They need to win games, so at least have a go. 

 

Dont have any sympathty for any team that play like that.

For me this has been a recurring problem this season. Teams come to Hillsborough, sit back, and we have absolutely no idea how to break them down. There's no link between our line of defence and the attack at the moment. Midfield is non-existent so we either play it backwards or just hoof it from defence to attack. Without Hooper no one drops short from up top to receive the ball. Today it looked like we were playing 5-0-5

Its hard to play football against a team who doesn't want to play football as daft as it sounds

It shows they cared more about getting something (anything) from us rather than their actual league position.

 

But they did have chances to nick it

We created plenty.

 

Joao had 3 straight chances in the first half.

 

We need a striker who will take advantage of these half chances.

 

Get Rhodes in Jan and some of our problems will disappear like magic.

I think 6 shots on goal in 90 mins says it all, we were flat and slow.
