    Hernandez!!
    From the highlights, looked like City playing with them.
    A repeat would be nice.

    Rotherham gave us David Seaman, Duggie Brown, Chuckle Brothers, William Hague, Ivy Tilsley and Howard Webb.
    The Rotherham Advertiser was the crucible in which the UK's leading literary light, Jeremy Clarkson, was smelted.
    They made many of the cannons for HMS Victory and the steel plates for the SS Great Eastern.
    Jamie Oliver's television series Jamie's Ministry of Food (2008) was based in Rotherham. He aimed to make Rotherham "the culinary capital of the United Kingdom"
    The brick-built glass making furnace, the Catcliffe Glass Cone, is the oldest surviving structure of its type in Western Europe.
    The first Rotherham United home strip was yellow and black.
    Rotherham United are called the Millers because there is a Hovis Mill near to the ground.
    Rotherham played in the first ever League Cup Final, losing 3-2 on aggregate to Aston Villa in 1961.
    Rotherham United came from the merging of Rotherham Town and Rotherham County.

    My dad used to tell me he’d send me to Rotherham when I was naughty.

    Think we paid 40k each for them which was a fortune in those days

    Over 21,000 tickets sold. At s guess it'll end up somewhere around 22,500. That's incredible for where we were.

    Just over a year ago our crowds were less than half that. A lot of people said we can only get big crowds in the PL. I think people got used to the malaise and accepted it as our identity. That was always temporary and we're showing it now. We haven't really had anything significant to cheer yet but a bit of hype and energy at the club along with positive pricing goes a long way.

    This is a timely reminder that the potential is there. We used to talk about potentially extending the stadium and we can get to that stage again.

    That's the biggest thing about this season. Yes always nice when you are challenging but after the what's gone on in the past it's great to see the fan base building back up. It's always more difficult to get people back but the new owner is certainly having a go.

    The British record transfer at that time was £115,000 for Denis Law. So, a third of the record. Like paying over £30 million today. And we bought 3 players at that price, Waggy, Houghton and Butler.

    With the up take it's not even very hard to justify the special pricing.

    Using VERY simplified math with no juniors etc.
    22,000 @ £15 = £330,000
    12,000 @ £28 = £336,000

    With all the extra food, drinks, programs being sold I bet you'd make a lot more from a full ground.

    (and yes I know better supported clubs can sell out their ground at full price. We can't yet, but maybe we can in the future using this approach)

    Wonderful response to Acun/Tan's cheaper ticket gesture and all-round way of breathing life back into our wonderful club. To get 21K plus for the game. It just goes to show what a football fan owner, who also has his head screwed on in the right way can turn a floundering mess of a club into a thriving, living thing once again. Hat's off to Acun.

    On the game, no better way to feed off this air of positivity than by putting in a commanding performance and 3 points. Hopefully, Connolly is back with him up front with Oscar, then we should trouble their back line.

    Back in the good old days of the early-mid 2000s, whenever we got a big crowd we tended to really turn up and put in a performance. Thinking Swansea and Oxford in 03/04. Hopefully the team can feed off the crowd on Saturday

    Hi John - he ended up playing left back for one of the teams that started up at the same time as WAKAM - Saint Peters.
    In his early days at City he used to give me a lift to home games along with Ron Rafferty's son. Thoroughly nice chap as well as a fine footballer.

    Using real inflation rather football inflation, the fees were about £1 million a pop in today's money. Which says something fairly scary about football inflation.

    Looked it up on a site showing purchasing power. It said it would take £25.93 to purchase what a £1 did in 1964 allowing for inflation. So that would have been £2,981, 950 each or just under 9 million for the three of them. Which still, as you said, says something scary about football inflation.<laugh>

    £40,000 in 1964 would be the same as £655,843.20 today (according to the Bank Of England).
