RUFC - Oh My God - How Good Was That!

RUFC - Oh My God - How Good Was That!

Rotherham United played their first ever game at their new home yesterday and here are Millers Nez's first thoughts of the New York Stadium.

... O.M.G. ... How Good Was That ? ...

What an experience that was!

From setting off (early) to the game, to the journey home in the car, everything was prefect about today!

And it's not just this once, because we've got this experience every home match from now on, Wow!

The buzz and anticipation approaching the Stadium was overwhelming, and as the crowds grew bigger and bigger outside, it was evident that everyone had got a great big beaming smile on their face, thinking of what was to greet them on entering OUR New York Stadium!

And it wasn't disappointing in any way!

The acoustics are fantastic, from the brand spanking new tannoy system, to the singing from the North (Kop) Stand, it was fantastic!

And then the team came out to warm up and the feeling that the game was only half a hour away, and then we had Tony Stewart walking onto the pitch to rapturous applause, and well deserved, and then it was the turn of the team, walking out for the very first time to play a game of football on our fabulous lush pitch!

A shake of hands from the two captains, a toss of a coin from the referee, a whistle blown, and away we go, the first game!

I'd seen nearly all of the newcomers play, and totally outclass Parkgate F.C. a week ago! I'd read where we'd played a game in Portugal against a team from a league above us, namely Oldham Athletic, and apparently turned out a very professional performance and beat them by 3 goals to 1, so I couldn't wait to witness how we would get on against a Championship side, our neighbours Barnsley!

And once again I wasn't disappointed, because we played controlled football, never panicking, and it all looked a heck of a lot better than I've seen in a long while!

Thanks to Tony Stewart, we can now watch our team in a fantastic new ICONIC stadium, but also thanks to Steve Evans for assembling the side that's now added the scalp of Barnsley F.C., and I just can't wait till Tuesday now to see another exhibition of wonderful football in a wonderful stadium!

Never in my wildest dreams, and I've had a few, could I have ever imagined that it could be this good!

Somebody please tell me that I'm not dreaming!


No dreams Nez - it's all true!
