Rotherham United would like to thank the many supporters who have been in touch with us regarding last night’s iFollow Millers commentary for the game against Stoke City.
We appreciate how difficult it is for everyone having to watch the game from home, but we are pleased that supporters are enjoying the service, which was provided last night by Matt Goodwin, John Breckin and Les Payne.
Feedback received on social media and by email since yesterday’s fixture with the Potters has poured in from fans of both clubs and we would like to say a huge thank you for choosing to support your team through the purchase of an iFollow pass.
While a club commentary will always carry some level of bias, we always aim to tell the story of the game and do so whilst being entertaining and informative in equal measure.
Reacting to the positive feedback on last night’s commentary, Rotherham United Honorary Life President John Breckin said:
“We’re really pleased with the reception that last night’s commentary has received and are extremely grateful for the kind words from both sets of fans.
“Of course, I’m Rotherham through and through and I won’t shy away from that, but as a commentary team myself, Les (Payne) and Matt (Goodwin) will always give credit where it is due to the opposing team.
“This is a really difficult time for everyone, football fans included and to be able to take the game into their living rooms and give them a bit of light-hearted fun during this period really does make it all worthwhile.
“Rotherham United is a football club at the heart of its community and it has a real connection with its supporters, something which I believe is led by Paul Warne.
“To cap it all off, it was a fantastic game, which deserved a full house and a standing ovation for both sides.
“For me personally, the one thing the commentary has taught is me that I do need to go to Specsavers for some new glasses, because I’m still convinced Matt Crooks’ effort in injury-time went in!”
Rotherham United would like to thank supporters for continuing to support the football club through the purchase of iFollow passes, in the absence of ticket sales.
