Comment: Rotherham United have to keep 2022 signing this summer, can be cult hero figure

Rotherham United’s season has been a write off and they need to start thinking about building for the next campaign.

Rotherham United have lacked the quality needed to compete adequately in the Championship but there is no reason why they can’t bounce back with promotion from League One at the first time of asking, assuming they don’t miraculously survive.

One positive from this term has been Tom Eaves. The striker, who joined the club in 2022, has become a bit of a cult hero at the New York Stadium.

He has scored four goals in this campaign, including recently against Ipswich Town and QPR, and could be a big player next season.

Who is this?

Eaves can be big player for Rotherham United

At the age of 32, Eaves has a lot of experience now and has played just under 400 appearances in his career to date.

This know-how will come in handy as Rotherham look to compete at the top end of the third tier.

Changes are needed with the Millers this summer. They need to let players leave and they should bring in some young blood and fresh enthusiasm.

However, keeping someone like Eaves who knows what it takes to get out of that league is a must. He still has a year left on his deal with the South Yorkshire outfit so there is no reason to get rid of him.

The Liverpudlian helped his former club Hull City win the title back in 2021 under Grant McCann.

He is also a proven goal scorer in that division having fired 40 goals in 97 games for Gillingham from 2017 to 2019. The 6ft 3inc forward has also played for the likes of Bolton Wanderers and Yeovil Town in the past.

Rotherham are back in action this weekend with a tricky test against play-off chasing Norwich City.

It has been a tough spell for everyone involved with the Millers, especially the supporters who have paid their hard earned money to watch a team who are evidently struggling to match the standard of sides they are facing.

The only thing Leam Richardson can ask for is that his players give their all. Eaves has done recently, and deserves to stay in the summer and help make things right.
