Millers Abroad - Carlos Andres

6 June 2016

Our next Miller abroad is Carlos Andres from Colombia...

1. When did you become a fan of Rotherham United FC?

I became a Rotherham fan on a December night of 2012. I was looking for a club in the lower leagues of England in the FIFA 13 game, with a similar badge and kit as my Colombian football team, Independiente Santa Fe (Bogotá, Colombia).

I found a team in  League Two, it was Rotherham United. I made it to the Premier League Trophy and Europa League Trophy in four years as first team coach.

As the year went on, I figured out they were getting promoted to League One with Steve Evans as first team coach and then I kept following matches from my new beloved team, Rotherham United.

2. How do you follow the club?

I follow the team with Twitter as the first hand information and news from Yorkshire.

When Rotherham were live on Sky Sports, I watched the matches.

Some people ask how I keep following a team from the second tier, having Premier League matches on ESPN, but I only care for Rotherham matches.

Thanks to the social media of Rotherham I keep following live matches of RotherhamUnited since 2012.
 
3. Do you ever have the opportunity to attend matches?

I've never had the chance to visit Rotherham because I'm too young, just 20 years old.

It's a really big dream that I have, to visit North Stand at the AESSEAL New York Stadium some day.

I've promised myself to visit you guys before the team goes 100 years old in 2025.

4. Have you always been a fan of the club from abroad?

Yes, of course.

Rotherham is a rare passion of mine, while other people follow big England teams recognized worldwide because of titles and big players, I just follow Rotherham because of the passion I feel,

I feel the red and white colors, feel the passion from South Yorkshire.

5. What are your greatest memories of Rotherham United FC?

Since I followed the Millers just a few years ago, my greatest memory of Rotherham was the screamer Alex Revell done against Leyton Orient in Play Off League One final game and the two big saves by Adam Collin in the last two penalties same match in Wembley.

It was absolute madness and I got quite happy. 

From this season, away wins at Wednesday, Leeds, Ipswich and Dons and home wins against Bolton, Bristol, Boro and Brighton.

All quite special, getting three points from relegation rivals or top flight division contenders. Looking forward to make some other big memories next year, you Millers!!!

Thanks to Carlos for getting in touch!
