Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart, says that, at times, watching the Millers at Don Valley, is 'like watching Brazil.'
Well, perhaps the first half on Saturday which saw us brush Chester City aside might have resembled, in parts, Brazil but the second half was more like watching Ronnie Moore's infamous 'Rose and Crown' team. But, we got three points, which, at the moment, is more important than how we play, as we claw our way back from minus seventeen.
In an interview with The Mail Online, Mr Stewart likened the team not only to Brazil but also saying 'we are the phoenix rising from the ashes' while admitting he probably wasn't on the Football League's Christmas card list!
'We are optimistic and Mark Robins believes we've got a better team than last season. We are aiming for the play-offs and in four years to be in the Championship. Mark and John Breckin are a great combination and the players respect them.
'I never intended to be Chairman after coming in as a local business man to take a look at the club. But, I've always had drive and passion and I recognised that in the people here and got drawn into the work ethic.
'Millmoor was a bit Anglo-Saxon and it was time for a change. We moved to Don Valley with it's modern facilities although I've heard the jokes about needing a telescope to see.'
Speaking about the Carling Cup game, Mr Stewart carried on, 'As a boyhood Owls fan, winning at Sheffield Wednesday was a bit special for me. And, our lads are playing with a little skip in their step these days.'
The Millers take on Wolves, at Don Valley, in the second round of the Carling Cup tomorrow night (Tuesday) with a 7.45pm kick-off.
