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

RUFC - Pope 'Millers never saw the best of me'

Former Rotherham United striker Tom Pope made the Millers fans squirm in their seats at Vale Park on Saturday afternoon as he proceeded to score four of the home side`s six goals.

Speaking to Vale`s Official Site the twenty-seven year old was obviously pleased to score against his former club, where he was never happy, and said that the Millers had never seen the best of him.

'It`s probably the best day of my footballing career. I`ve had a few decent performances and scored a few vital goals but I think with it being against Rotherham it adds a bit of spice to it all although it would have added a bit more if the right person was there, but he isn`t.

'I had a lot of stick from the fans during my time there and struggled with injuries which I`d never done before. So I know for a fact that Rotherham never saw the best of me. I felt that they gave me a bit too much stick, so it was nice to score and show them what they were missing out on.`

But was he right to come and celebrate his hat-trick in front of the Millers fans?
If you`d been getting stick all afternoon from the travelling fans wouldn`t you have wanted to give a bit back?
Personally, I think it was a gut reaction by Pope and, as he`s said, he wanted to show us what we were missing.

What do you think?
