Millers Eye Pope

Millers Eye Pope

Rotherham United are thought to be launching a bid to sign Alex striker Tom Pope.

The Millers are reported to already have had a bid of around £20,000 turned away by Gudjon Thordarson but it is expected that our League Two rivals will return with an improved offer.

Pope has been a solid fans favourite since arriving from Biddulph in 2006. His hard work up clearly makes up for his lack of footballing ability in some fans eyes.

Last season Pope finished the clubs top scorer with 10 goals in just over 30 appearances but still failed to hold down a regular spot in the team, with Calvin Zola usually first choice when fit.

It's unlikely that Thordarson will fight too much to keep Pope. With Zola, Donaldson, Miller and Elding already competing for a starting place up front the chance of bringing in some money whilst cutting down on numbers is likely to be welcombed by Gudjon.

If Tom Pope goes so do I. I've been a season ticket holder, with my family, for many long years but this would be the last straw for me - I can take watching football at this level, we've been here before for many long years, but to sell our prized asset (a favourite with many fans ) would be an intolerable situation for many already disgruntled supporters. We may have spent half a million on strikers last year but Tom is the only one that we have that cuts the mustard and ever looks likely to score a goal. The very idea of allowing Tom to leave fills me with dread, another one that will come back and haunt us. The remaining strikers couldn't hit a proverbial barn door last season and I don't see what 3 months rest will do to change that situation. Shouldn’t the fact that Rotherham or anyone else haven’t made a play for the others tell a story? Heaven help us GT don’t do it..
