RUFC - The Bergara Months

It's impossible to even begin painting a pretty picture of the season that the late Danny Bergara was in charge at Rotherham and it was no doubt the longest 12 months endured by Millers fans for many a year, but there was a couple of high spots to look back and smile about.

For me, the game of the season was the 2-0 midweek victory over Bristol City at Ashton Gate. Strangely goalless for 68 minutes, then Darren Garner and Earl Jean scored the winning goals during the next 4 minutes.

We've never really had the best of luck at Ashton Gate, but we showed a play-off chasing team a thing or 2 that night.

I remember coming out after the game and a very rough looking City fan came marching towards me. Now I'm a big lad, but I was a tad nervous about this.

He walked up, shook me by the hand and said 'you deserved that pal, we we're f***ing Sh**e' he then wished us good luck for the rest of the season, and stomped off (PHEW!!!!)

The other game what stood out for me was the 3-3 draw at Burnley......when we finally got a top scorer (3 games from the end of the season)

We had Trevor Berry, Mark Druce and Andy Hayward on 4 followed by centre-back Ian Breckin on 3...along with Earl Jean the young St Lucian forward who promptly banged a hat-trick in that afternoon. His third goal put us 3-1 up, but 2 quick replies from Burnley (4 goals in 6 minutes) gave them a point.

We also had a great victory down at Bristol Rovers on the final day thanks to a late Darren Garner winner, but relegation had been confirmed weeks back.

The downsides are too numerous to mention, but the ones that stand out to me were....the 6-2 defeat at Peterborough, the 1-0 defeat by Blackpool at Millmoor which took the Auto Windscreens Shield off us at the first attempt....and obviously the day relegation was confirmed away at Wrexham.

Not too happy memories of his time here, but hey that's Football.

Without the lows, the highs would be meaningless.
