Dirty Dozen : Rotherham United 16/03/2021

Posted by Matt Rowson in Nonsense.

“Dirty Dozen” is a feature that I write for the match programme;  mindful that the programme might be enjoying a slightly lower readership than is normal, I’m reproducing the pieces that were in the corresponding home programme prior to away games for the rest of the season (with the club’s permission).

Format is simple – twelve questions, how many do you know the answers to?

Feel free to enter your responses or scores in comments but I won’t be marking them. Answers at the top of the comments.

  1. Millers boss Paul Warne has been in charge since 2016. Which two ex-Hornets were among the five men to take charge at Rotherham during that calendar year?
  2. Which summer saw Rotherham most recently prepare for a season in the same division as the previous?
  3. Which two players did Watford sign from Rotherham in January 2007? They are the most recent sales of outfield players by the Millers to a Premier League club.
  4. The last time we played Rotherham at Vicarage Road prior to this season five years ago, Slavisa Jokanovic combated the Millers’ aerial threat by playing four centre-backs across the back. Name them.
  5. Who scored the Hornets’ last goal at Millmoor?
  6. Under which manager did Hornets legend Lloyd Doyley play three games for the Millers after leaving Vicarage Road?
  7. For which club did Millers’ coach Matthew Hamshaw score a memorable goal to help knock Gianluca Vialli’s Hornets out of the League Cup at the fifth round stage in 2001?

  11. Ian Bolton memorably scored from his own half in this fixture in January 1982. Which former England international and TV celebrity was player-managing the Millers at the time?
  12. The only Rotherham goalscorer in our last seven meetings with the Millers was striker Martin Butler in a 1-1 draw at Millmoor in 2004.
