Millers Christmas Period

Millers Christmas Period

The Christmas period is now upon us, starting at Swansea next weekend. We need points from the next games - I think we have to get all six from our home games against Oldham (Boxing Day) and Leyton Orient (Saturday 30th December) and two from the away games at Swansea and Tranmere. It won`t be easy.


I think that`s where we, the fans, can help. We need to be united. We need to get behind the team.

I understand today, at Cheltenham, there were a certain number of travelling Millers booing Will Hoskins. I know everyone has an opinion, I know a lot of us feel, if he leaves in January, he will have let us down. But, he hasn`t left yet and this won`t encourage him to stay. And we really, really need to do well over the next couple of weeks. We need him to play his heart and soul out for Rotherham United. He plays well and the rest of the team will surely follow suit.

Perhaps it`s just me but I`ve never been one to boo (I wouldn`t like someone to come to watch me at work and boo me). Yes, I know that footballers are paid good wages, that we pay hard earned money to watch them entertain us and I can well understand the frustration fans feel when the team aren`t performing. I`m just saying that they would probably respond more to shouts of encouragement than being booed. Alan Knill has done so well this season climbing above all the obstacles put in his way and getting the team to fight their way above the relegation zone. Let`s show him that we appreciate it.

So, can I just say let us all get behind the team - let`s clap, sing, stamp, chant and above all let`s urge the team on from the first to the ninetieth minute.

I've never booed a Millers player either Caz. I may have been disappointed, upset, angry, but no booing!! Will Hoskins and his goals have got us out of the mire this season, he's a hero, not a villain.

I would never give abuse to a miller and theres been some bad times in all the years I've been going.This season,were we really expecting to be where we are now,my heart said yes but in all honesty I didnt think we would be,so after all the hard work,keep behind the lads and lets get to the safety mark asap.
