It doesn't help

Recommended Posts

it doesn't help us when the manager comes out with stuff like "it's their (the opposition's) cup final". It just gees the opposition up and at the same time makes us look arrogant at worst, deluded at best. What have we achieved over the last 20 years? We need to move on (forwards) but that won't happen until we take a look in the mirror and acknowledge where we are today

A quote supported by their manager might I add...

Why not say it? 

It is their Cup Final. 

Will it be their team talk? 

So what.

Their own manager said that somebody who scored a winner would go into folklore for eternity (or words to that effect).

 

Rotherham were going to be up for it regardless of what Bruce said.

It’s the type of tongue in cheek arrogance that I love. Did the trick. Riled them up. Hilarious. 

 

And dare are I say it; it’s right out of the Megson school of thought.

Don't think Bruce's quote mmade any difference to rotherhams efforts, they are fighting for championship status and have a togetherness, think were lacking that and the money thats been splashed around to our players hasnt helped, a good clearout required.

Bruce can say what he wants for me as long as the team he puts out delivers the goods

I must say, when I first heard Bruce say it I cringed a bit.

 

Not slagging him off, but it’s like something Wilder would say. And whilst I do like having a manager who speaks his mind and is passionate and everything Jos wasn’t...saying stuff like that can play into the oppositions hands.

 

Save the trash talk for after the game.

There's two ways of looking at it.

 

They do think it's their cup final, they are going to be up for it so no harm done.

 

As a general rul running down the opposition is a bad idea, it makes their managers job easier, ' They don't respect us, let's go out there and show them.' We don't need to shoot ourselves in the foot and make things harder so always be respectful of the opposition.

 

As a club we've had a problem beating rubbish teams, as if the players expect it to be easy and don't try very hard. Running down the opposition isn't a good idea if it exacerbates that problem.
