Loan Lad Part Of Stunning FA Cup Comeback

Dan Barlaser started his sixth straight match for Rotherham United as they traveled to face Solihull Moors in the second round of the FA Cup.

Barlaser lasted until the 66th minute before being replaced by Matt Crooks with the Millers trailing 3-0 to the National League side.

Rotherham didn’t get a goal until the 76th minute through Freddie Ladapo. Michael Ihiekwe followed with their second just three minutes later.

It then took a bit of time before first-half substitute Michael Smith scored in the 88th and 91st minute to send Rotherham through to the third round of the FA Cup. What a historic comeback for Rotherham!

They’ll now face Jarrod Bowen (maybe?) and Hull City at home on January 4th.

Here is the 91st-minute winner from Michael Smith.

    Tsunki “Somewhere in the middle is the core who understand exactly what’s been done to commercialise this club and make it into a modern, global retail brand-pushing tool with sporting ambition a very distant second thought.”

    So what are you doing about it Tsunki? Other than just shouting at folk on here, I mean. Have you been in touch with Genjikai yet?

    We all understand what’s the state of the club and we don’t need to be lectured every single day on how we should be feeling over what’s going on.

    I’ll freely admit I haven’t done enough to support Genjikai and the Magpie Group to get rid of Ashley. How about you?

    You are still missing the point.

    I didn’t say those outside of the top 6 have limited ambitions.

    I said their priority first and foremost was to stay in the Prem.

    That doesn’t mean they want to finish 4th bottom.

    I agree with you on what we would want from a new owner.

    However, other new owners have come with those intentions and bombed.

    Blackburn, QPR and Leeds to name but three.

    The one thing Ashley has done is retain high wage earners and spend decent money to get back first time into the Prem after relegation.

    Not statue erecting material but it didn’t happen with the above three clubs, or Sland or Boro for that matter.

    The problem with not getting a billionaire is that millionaires just don’t have the money to burn if their original ‘boy with a new toy’ goes wrong.

    That’s the danger with a new owner.

    Explain your reason.
