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

RUFC - Robins 'it worked'

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, told The Star that he thinks the experiment of putting the home fans in the Railway End, usually reserved for away fans, worked and hopes it can be repeated in the following few months.

'It was brilliant having our own supporters there and made a difference to the atmosphere - it was certainly more vocal. I'd like to see it happen again and I'm certain the players would too. Of course, I realise that the away fans have to be taken into consideration and it needs a lot of co-operation from a lot of people including the police.

'But, I think where it's possible we should look into doing it again. I am sure the fans would like it and I don't see why we can't give them what they want if and where we can.'

Everything went smoothly on Saturday and the club acknowledged the assistance they got from the police with this.

yep the phoenix in new zealand did that kept the fans in very close area in one part of the stadium and it created a wonderful atmosphere

and also gives fans a chance to get to know each other

Ahh,no you misunderstand, we had ALL the stadium except for a quarter of the away end reserved for the Wycombe fans. It was a special offer day and we wanted to show the council that there is a need for a new stadium. Hopefully, we can do it again but not when clubs like Chesterfield come as they will probably fill that end on their own
