I`ve been watching the Millers since 1979,and in that time we`ve had some great players,and some pretty sh*te ones.
But I reckon only 5 are what I would call "Millers Legends",these are players that go beyond just being a good player,they did something,or represented something beyond the norm.
So my legends are...
1.Ronnie Moore,I`d only just started watching Rotherham not long before he joined,and of course he featured heavily he what is probably the best ever Millers team,top scorer,and a proper old fashioned centre forward.
Fast forward a few years and becomes even more legendary with his success as manager,great times.
2.Tony Towner,from same era,simply my favourite player of all time,and the most exciting to watch.
3.Paul Hirst,a one club player making over 500 appearances.No matter who came along he would always get his place back,would walk into the team today.
4.Adam Le Fondre,although not with us for long,he was usually the only reason to go to DVS.Best finisher in a Millers e

Anyway, starting from the late sixties, what about dave watson...but then again, maybe not a legend at the time...and what about super intelligent rodney fern..he didnt run about like a headless chicken like some...he let the ball do the work..what a fab player...it says something when emlyn hughes couldnt believe we'd got a player like that on the books...

Can't believe no ones mentioned Mark Robins?

Imagine a forward three of :

Ronnie Moore played 125 scored 52

Bobby Williamson played 109 scored 49

Mark Robins played 107 scored 44

Fire power or what!

Yes, great player, could magic a goal out of nothing. Also, big Dave Watson who went on to play for Sunderland, Man City and England.

Danny Williams - great player and manager
Albert Bennett (England B/under 23? internaional)

Johnny Breckin is surely worth a mention. However, the word 'Legend' cannot be used lightly and until now Ronnie Moore is the only man befitting of such a lofty title.
