Steve Evans taunts Bradford City: You’ll finish with nowt!

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Steve Evans gestures on the touchline during his Rotherham side’s midweek victory at Valley Parade Steve Evans gestures on the touchline during his Rotherham side’s midweek victory at Valley Parade

Steve Evans today taunted City by claiming: You won’t make the play-offs.

The outspoken Rotherham boss also believes that Phil Parkinson will not be at Valley Parade next season.

The controversial Evans maintained his stranglehold on the Bantams with Tuesday’s 2-0 triumph in front of League Two’s largest crowd of the season. He has won all four games against them as a league boss.

But he could not resist the opportunity to stir things up ahead of this weekend’s crucial home game against Burton with a spot of gamesmanship.

Evans said: “This is a big club and they had a great cup run. But I think this might not be their year.

“From all the hype before the game that Bradford might go up automatically, I am not even so sure they will make the play-offs.

“I don’t think they can beat Burton – and I don’t think they can beat Cheltenham.”

Rotherham lead Burton on goal difference in the fight for the third promotion spot and a City victory would do the Millers a massive favour. Cheltenham, where City go on the last day, are also in the mix two points behind.

So the jibe from Evans could be seen as a way of provoking a reaction after the midweek result.

He said: “I’ve got no malice against Bradford City. Their fans gave me stick but some came and asked me to sign their programme before the game.

“I think people at Bradford City know what went on here last year. I held my head high last year and can hold it here this year.

“It is a Bradford side I think highly of and Phil Parkinson has made some great signings – but I don’t think he will be at Bradford City next year.”

Parkinson refused to be drawn on these provocative comments. But he thought that the past events with Evans could have been behind referee Mark Haywood’s decision to send Steve Parkin to the stands.

The City number two was dismissed just before half-time after an exchange with fourth official Alf Greenwood.

Parkinson said: “It was just a very slight altercation and nothing more than you get in any other game.

“I asked the fourth official afterwards if he had come here with predetermined thoughts that there might be some trouble on the touchlines.

“When you hear what gets said throughout the course of the season, it was minimal to say the least.”

Meanwhile, defender Michael Nelson is still protesting his innocence over the controversial penalty that broke the deadlock.

Nelson said: “I got hit in the back and was falling down. I put my arm out to try and save myself and the ball hit me on the way down – if anything, it was a foul.”

City head into the penultimate weekend with a point advantage on Exeter in the final play-off spot. Chesterfield, Southend and even Fleetwood have an outside chance of overhauling them.

Nelson said: “Things are still in our hands. We have a massive home game on Saturday and hopefully we will get a fair crack of the whip in that.

“Tuesday has got to be one of the best atmospheres I have ever seen at a League Two game. It was unbelievable and hopefully it will be the same.”

Andrew Davies was due to have a scan yesterday on his back and both calves, while James Meredith is aiming to recover from his sore hip.

Parkinson said: “Mezza will be desperate to play but we’ve got a good replacement in Carl (McHugh) anyway.”

* Valley Parade will stage the customary minute’s silence to remember the fire victims before City’s game against Burton on Saturday – their last at home in the regular season.

A collection will take place at the ground on behalf of the Bradford University Burns Research Unit. Donations can also be made via the City Supporters’ Trust website at www.bcst.co.uk/donations.

Did wonder if Burton won on Saturday ( Not wanted!); but Rov'Ram lost. Then Cheltenham won as well. If we could get a result -win- at Cheltenham, with the last match. Could City make S.Evans --eat these words.??. I hope so.

Steve Evans' attempts at mind games are laughable. It's so obvious and predictable.

"Evans doesn't think we'll beat Burton? We'll show him!" - and thus giving his team a better chance of getting Rotherham promoted.

Had City not being playing Rotherham's promotion rivals on Saturday, this wouldn't have even been said. It's so transparent and people are getting all wound up by it.

It's a NOTHING of a story. Why are the T&A even printing it?

Ignore the man!

Parkinson will be at Ciy next season. His cotnract is currently with the LMA as his agent is il. Parky just wants the contract re-wording in parts and his backroom team to be in place. As for Evans he is just a tool. One of these days h's going to have a great fall. Just seen new shirts designs for next season - by chance. No hoops. The sponsors was on it as well. Which is being announced after saturday I believe. Looks good on first impressions and could be ready for/if playoffs.

I think everyone can see that this is probably just an attempt to wind City up to beat Burton so that Rotherham will make the automatics. Also, if they don't make automatics, I doubt if he would want to play us in the play offs, which is the likely scenario if we hold on to seventh place. Would you rather play against Exeter with possibly 4,000 in the crowd at their ground (and with their recent poor record) and a few hundred away fans at the return leg, or would you rather play City in front of over 14,000 and the away end sold out at the return game? Also, with these games televised on Sky, there's no place for him to hide and you would expect proper officials to be refereeing the game and not be influenced by his bullying tactics.

However, he might just, for once, be giving an honest opinion, which he can do from the higher ground as his team has hit 6 against us without conceding, proving that his tactics unfortunately can work.

Also, our record against the top 8 teams around us is extremely poor - 12 points out of 14 games. Whilst City undoubtedly have some good players capable of playing attacking football when the opposition allows, it seems like those teams above us who may not have such good players but have the nous, resoluteness, power and organisation are able to nullify our threat and hit us with sucker punches on the break. It certainly worked on Tuesday when we played right into their hands, ending up naively pumping long high balls to players who were heavily marked. Only one winner playing that way.

So the delightful Mr Evans might just believe what he says. It is conceivable that City will lose to both Burton and Cheltenham. Burton have quick, dangerous players that can strike on the break (probably better than Rotherham's) - we saw that in the cup tie here - and Cheltenham are very strong at home, beating most of the top teams, including Rotherham and Exeter 3-0 and Gillingham and Northampton 1-0. They concede very few goals at home and I would hate to go there needing a win.

I hope he is wrong and we get the points we need to take that seventh place, but it is going to take one last big push from the lads. We need to get behind them and help them over the line. If we can just get there, we start again in the play offs with just as much chance as any of the other teams of winning it, even if some teams finish with 8 or 9 points more than us.

Truly squeaky bum time!

The headline doesn't really refelect the tone of his remarks, printed in the main body of the story.

He seems to be stating a genuinely held belief about our promotion prospects which, incidently, echoed the sentiments of quite a few of our fans, as I left the ground on Tuesday.

I can't stand the bloke but he's entitled to his opinion. I'd like to see Rotherham promoted outright because Evans seems to have us sussed and, if we do make the play offs, I wouldn't fancy our chances against them in the play offs.

We will make the play offs and it is a near certainty that we will meet rotherham in the final at Wembley score City win 1- 0 with a 65,000 crowd 40,000 city fans attending thats when Evans will get more than enough stick back, just look out for one big fat red face when the final whistle is blown. Rotherham stuck in 2 div for another season lets hope that when Parky goes Evans is not offered the City job.

Well Done Michael..good points there...I notice the "loud mouth manager" hasnt predicated any scores..and i am given to understand that rotherham were a bit lucky on saturday..although if this chap did have any sense surely he would have stayed with crawley in a higher league?..looking at the last 2 games for all the sides could he not say why he believes what he believes...IF rotherham do get promoted do the have the cash to remain in the higher league?..Better alround if T and A had just kept quiet about this mans views...he needs to focus on his own team...or perhaps the problem here is FEAR - if we finish 7th and he finishes 4th..has he got enough cash left to "buy a ref"..cos we have had our fair share of blind ones this season(im being as polite as possible here) Mr Evans i think U maybe a worried man, the exeter manager is right...this will go to the wire..and if rotherham dont get promoted 1 way or another to scottish loudmouth will have successfully FAILED!

Evans is nothing more than an odious little cretin who thrives on upsetting people.
Take no notice of him and I hope the lads do the business on Saturday and make the horrible excuse of a human being eat his words.
By the looks of his ever expanding waistline he eats everything else and with a gob that big it isn't hard to achieve.

he will be laughing his head off.

we have played them twice this year and lost 6-0 !!! we could have still been playing from tuesday and we still would not have scored, forget pathetic childish blaming the ref we were out witted. 2 men on reid, jones nullified, pointless aimless balls to wells. they did there job.

now we need to man up, look forward, and concentrate on what we can influence. beating burton is a must now. look forward not back and stop whining and making excuses. refs do make mistakes, just like players. and just as with players you get a lower quality in division 4!!! thats life.

man up and get 3 points on saturday or its yet another year of division 4 dross all round. with another year of bleating and frankly hilarious conspiracy theories.

I agree with you up to this point. There are some stars on here who will think that Evans has a genuine vendetta against BCFC!

However, I would like to know what you mean when you say "man up". It is rather like saying "attack, attack, attack" or "more positive tactics".
"Man up" does not mean anything to me.

Also, for fear of diluting anything I have written (to date) or to contradict anything you have said (excuse wise, bleating, conspiracies etc), I cannot recall anything going City's way this season (decision wise).

Of course there is an element of bias but it just seems like we have been robbed blind. Give me the 90+ hours needed to watch the season in order to vindicate this or to prove that I was simply biased!

Story was in the Yorkshire Post this morning as well.And Rotherham's local paper, (NB The Rotherham Advertiser),doesn't carry the story simply because it's Evans being questioned about City,not RUFC

Theres not many certainties in football which makes it the great game that it is, and the reason we beat Premiership teams and reached Wembley.
One certainty however is football has an habit of biting you on the bum, and I have lost count of pundits who have predicted results, and found out to be wrong.
What goes around comes around.
Evans is an odious man and I was told that the FA actually want him out of the game, one more stupid act and he is in deep trouble.
This is fact.
Who would bet against City meeting Evans in the play offs and beating them, certainly if only by thel aw of averages we are going to beat him sooner rather than later.
Wouldnt it be nice for this to be when it really matters.

For any Rotheram fans reading, our problem is not with you, but with Evans and his equally creepy sidekick. You did not see what happened last season when we played Crawley, so you cant really comment.
If he was our manager I personally would have a dilemma as to whether to attend games or not.

Looks good on first impressions and could be ready for/if playoffs.[/p][/quote]If your "knowledge" of the new kit is as great as your knowledge of the Parky situation I'm not too believing of you to be honest. Parkys agent recovered- as reported in this paper- and the LMA have no involvement in the contract talks now at all.[/p][/quote]I half supported the 'special one' at the beginning of the week re the rumour of PP to Sheff Utd, sorry guys, this isn't going away, it is looking more and more like it is going to happen.
