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

RUFC - On This Day - 27 June

With players coming and going and the new stadium on the horizon let`s have a look at what has happened on this day in the past to the Millers

27 June 2011

On this day last year the Chairman, Tony Stewart, said he was pleased with the amount of season tickets sold with the total sold surpassing the total the Millers started the 2010/11 season with.

We found out that we had a second game changed with the Southend game at Roots Hall being moved to a Friday night from the Saturday.

Millers Manager, Andy Scott, went on record as saying he was 'surprised' that striker Ryan Taylor had chosen to go to Bristol City after already agreeing a deal with Millwall.

Scott also said he was pleased to get Chris Holroyd from Brighton.

27 June 2010

We asked Mos58, a newish poster to Vital Rotherham, to answer some questions for us - and got some very unusual replies. For instance we asked 'how long have you been supporting the Millers?' and the reply was 'Roughly 19000 miles'. To the question 'What made you decide 'Rotherham' was the team for you?' Mos replied 'Toss of a coin'. When we posed the question 'What was the first Millers game you saw at home' the reply was 'Never seen one at home. Haven`t got a TV'.

Unfortunately, we seem to have 'lost' Mos but would gladly welcome him back - so where are you!

27 June 2008

On this day four years ago, Derek Holmes was getting ready to leave the Millers.

Meanwhile, Alex Rhodes had joined Rotherham from Bradford City and boss, Mark Robins, said 'he will provide pace out wide.'

There was a creditors meeting held which, although wouldn't tell the Millers if they would be starting on minus points, would, according to the Chairman, 'give us a gut feeling about how things would go.'

27 June 2007

Five years ago today we held a live internet forum with Millers Manager Mark Robins. We asked him questions such as 'How do you feel about potential money spinners, like the Football League Trophy?' which Mark answered, 'All the competitions we enter will be taken seriously, it is important to get a rhythm, and we will pick the team that we believe can win the game. Financially a cup run would be a major boost to the club.' Questions about signings for the new season brought this response 'We are still looking to strengthen and if the right players become available we will act. Staying within budget is a priority.' The Millers were having problems off the football pitch and we asked 'Has the off field court dealings had an effect on who you wanted to sign?' with Mark replying, 'Not at all, players just want to know that things are on an even keel, any negative outcome of the court case just means that we are sitting tenants again.'

27 June 2006

On this day in 2006 Johnny Mullen joined former Millers manager, Ronnie Moore, at Tranmere which made him the third player to leave Millmoor in the close season - Paul Shaw (Chesterfield) and Martin Butler (Walsall) being the other two.
