Millers Abroad - Simon Majumdar

7 June 2016

Our next Miller Abroad is Simon Majumdar from Los Angeles...

1. When did you become a fan of Rotherham United FC?
I have been going to RUFC games since I was about six. 

My father (Pat Majumdar) was the Orthopedic consultant to the club for many years and used to take me to watch games from the "New Box" at Milmoor.

I then graduated to the terraces with my friends in the late 70's and early 80's, before moving to London. 

I would often drive all over the country to watch the Millers home and away. 

I had a brief and regrettable affection for Chelsea at one point, but I got better. 

I still live and breathe for the Millers result every week.

2. How do you follow the club?
Although it is hard (impossible) to get regular coverage, I listen to every radio broadcast and read all the Millers related websites constantly.

I also check out all the goals every week on the Miller's YouTube channel.

3. Do you ever have the opportunity to attend matches?
I still have family in Rotherham and Sheffield, so am back in the town on occasions.  I have not yet had chance to attend a game at the new stadium.  I can't wait.

4. Have you always been a fan of the club from abroad?
No

5. What are your greatest memories of Rotherham United FC?
Beating Arsenal 3-1 in 1978.

The Championship match against Plymouth in 1981.

THAT day at Wembley in 1996

And, the day I met Bobby Charlton at a friendly (for Jimmy Goodfellow, I think)
