Soccer

Although I have not lived in my hometown of Rotherham for 36 years I am really chuffed (stoked for my Aussie pals) with the their performances over the last two years, I even made the journey from Lincoln to watch them beat Sheffield United 3 - 1. Went with my son in law who is a Sheffield U season ticket holder. Funny but I cannot understand people who have no connection whatsoever with teams like Manchester United, Chelsea etc but claim to be fans.

They were not kicked out of the league but they did go into administration and had 10 points deducted, and they ended up being relegated to the second division. They languished there in mid table for a couple of years, the club was then taken over by a Business man who obviously has a lot of money as last year they had a new football ground built from scratch at a cost of £12 million. At the end of last year with a new ground a new owner and a new manager they finished second in the second division and were promoted to the first division. This year they are currently in 5th place in the first division and could be heading into the Championship. Surprising (or is it) what a wealthy owner and a good manager can achieve.
