If the rumours are true and a fee has been agreed then I for one think Alex Revell should be remembered up there with Alan Lee as a RUFC LEGEND!

Ok not as prolific BUT gave 100% every single game, wore hsi heart and millers badge on hs sleeve and loved/loves this club!

Thanks for Everything Alex, its been a pleasure!

Agreed. And both leave having scored THAT goal.

Also, Revell was actually the first player since Lee who could properly compete with defenders in the classic target man mould.

There's a lesson there. When Lee left, we continued to play the same way, with Butler who was a different sort of player. It didn't really work and, despite a brief period where we got Burton to compete effectively up front, we spent a very long time trying and failing to replace what we'd lost (Hibbert, O'Grady, Holmes, Broughton, Richie Barker the second time around, Pope).

By contrast, when Leo left, we go Lee, who was a better version of the same sort of player. That's what we have to hope for.
