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

Thank You

Rotherham United manager Alan Knill has let it be known through one local newspaper how much he appreciated the support the players got on tuesday night.

Some 125 hardy souls (me included) made the fairly long trip up to Hartlepool to watch the millers take part in what many would consider to be a waste of time the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.

Speaking of the fans Rotherham boss Alan Knill is quoted as saying that he would like to give his personal thanks to those who made the trip and wished he could have given them the result they wanted.

On a personal note all i can say to that is that the fans don`t mind travelling as long as the players put the effort in, but that was sadly lacking on this occasion.

I don't see the point of the 'paint cup' at all, and obviously most div.1 clubs don't either. I suppose its a good opportunity to throw some younger players into the mix, but how would you feel if a couple of first team players picked up injuries in one of these games and missed important league matches? Gutted!

Exactly DMG, weve been there , won it, paraded the shield, and although we wouldn't have changed that glorious day for the world its true to say that unless you win it, the comp is just one big hindurance.
