Thread: Would you rather us..

  1. #1

    Would you rather us..

    lose at Wembley?

    lose in play off semi finals?

    miss out on the play offs altogether?

    I have faith we can go up this season but I have a bad feeling that we won't do it and even if we do I don't think were yet good enough to compete next season in the Championship. I'd rather us 1 more season in league 1 then kick on to autos next season.

    Ideally yo-yoing between league 1 and the championship is the very best our club could hope for. Also providing we don't start to spend megabucks on signings and wages it would probably be the best money making option.

    Plus in the playoffs we get extra games and extra revenue.

    However losing a lot in a championship season would drop the entertainment factor and would increase the demands of our less switched on fans to "sack the mansger" and "get yer wallet out TS"

    I donít think you can pick & choose but if we do go up will have to spend a hell of a lot of money to stay up.The Championship is like the premier top 6-8 teams with money the rest fighting for the scraps.

    Very difficult but given the chance we have to play at the highest level we can achieve.Finding a way to survive in a completely unbalanced league without more investment is improbable but not impossible,firstly and foremost is do the people of Rotherham want and will support a club in the higher level,the evidence suggests that they don't.Ways to raise extra revenue are build an extension to the ground up to 25,000 capacity and try to fill it,try to attract bigger sponsorship.try alternative entertainment,but it's all pie in the sky and will probably never happen.We probably thought in the dark days at Don Valley that we would never get a nice new shiny stadium,so you never know,I imagine older Bournemouth supporters had the same thoughts when they like us nearly went out of existance,anything can happen.

    But they have got a very rich owner & a top,top manager.Us & them are now chalk & cheese.And Bournemouth attracts wealthy people nice area.

    I donít know about not being good enough to compete in the Championship. Judging recent results we arenít good enough to compete with the bottom clubs in League 1.

    I don't want us to miss out on the play-offs altogether. Getting there would represent a successful season. Missing out now, after having it comfortably in our own hands, thanks to an unbelievable run, would be a sickening anti climax.

    Even if we lose in the play-off semis I would still rather have got there, and lost, than missed out.

    Wembley is totally different for me. If we get there - brilliant - we still have a chance to go up. However, if we get there and lose I will certainly wish we had gone out in the semis. Wembley heartache is hard to take.

    Was going to agree with you Dave, then I re-read the 2nd sentence " We are all in it together " I've heard that somewhere before lol.

    Only 3 choices, No play-offs.....nah.
    Lose in semi-finals....nah.
    Lose at Wembley.......I can take that, one reason being what Grist mentioned, extra revenue.
    As big a heartache losing at Wembley would be we would recover for the new season the following August.

    The way we are playing we could be out of the play-offs by 5pm Easter Monday....get it sorted Warney.

    The Evans team was better than this one, for me anyway. Think next season would be just as bad as last term, but league football is about playing as high as possible. So, let's go for it, and hopefully we aren't fighting in a heap on here in a year's time.

    Spot on,good teams don't lose two on the bounce,especially to teams in the bottom four,MK Dons had not won at home since December,make of that what you will.

    Without looking too hard I see that Wigan lost 2 on the bounce recently and both Blackburn and Shrewsbury have lost 3 league games on the bounce

    I'd have to say lose at Wembley. We've been there and lost before without it hurting too much. Well not for too long. Does anyone else feel sorry for Rushden and Diamonds?

    It wasn't so much the defeat at Wembley, but the 200 plus quid it cost, to see Le Fondre and Ellison bottle it on the big stage.
