'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Tony Stewart - King? Saviour? God?

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart has recently been hailed as 'King', 'Saviour' and 'God' as he is moving the Millers back into Rotherham and into a brand new stadium.

Mr Stewart, who is the owner of Rotherham based ASD Lighting, came to most Millers notice when he came in to 'save' the Millers back in 2008 after the club had entered administration, not for the first time, and had a very unstable looking future.

With Mr Stewart at the helm the Millers brought back former hero, Ronnie Moore, got to Wembley, got rid of Moore and appointed Andy Scott as Manager at the end of last season. With all three Managers he has been Chairman off - Mark Robins being the first - he has always seemed to give them whatever they wanted and always said 'yes' to the players they wanted to bring in.

After taking up office, Mr Stewart targeted getting to the Championship in four years - clearly, that isn't going to happen but he has gone on record, in the past, of saying he's a 'risk taker not a gambler' so I'm guessing he didn't actually put any money on it!

And, as I said, Tony Stewart is bringing us back to Rotherham - but, I think we should take a minute to reflect and remember who took us out of Rotherham in the first place. Yes, we've been told that the former owners of Millmoor, our spiritual home, wouldn't do 'a deal' - what the said deal that was being proposed was we will probably never know. Personally, and I know others feel different and I accept and understand that, I still feel rather peeved about the fact that we never really got to say a proper goodbye to Millmoor. Yes, she let in water and had more flaws than Apocalypse Now but we've seen some good things there over the years.

But, here we are in 2012 and soon to be moving into a brand new ground - our ground. A ground that Tony Stewart has paid for and sorted out for us. The New York Stadium. Tony Stewart's done what he said he would do and brought us home.

King? Saviour? God? When you've made up your mind let me know.
