    Favourite away ground with the Millers & why.

    Easy choice for me,Carlisle been a few times but we secured our first ever trip to Wembley at Carlisle & Rod Ferns goal secured us promotion.And a great time in the beehive next to the ground.Yes itís a dump but what great memories.

    Have to say York. I'm a bit of a football purist, some might see Bootham Crescent as a dump, I love it. Nothing much has changed since my first visit in the late 80's to my last visit in 2012, where I actually went in the home end. It has character and charm in abundance. It's also where I received my first kicking at a match in the mid 90's but that's another story.
    The city itself is one of my favourite places too.

    Villa Park or Molineux, crappy areas but great old-school grounds.

    Never been to Craven Cottage but that looks like a nice stadium.

    My first away game was at Wrexham which was scary as a 11 year old. I do like it there!

    Last away game was Hillsborough if memory serves.

    I do like York because it's a fantastic feeling.

    I remeber going to Hull ont train near bonfire night. The original flares or bangers were thrown.

    Thinking anout it I will say Wrexham although it's no where near the best ground it holds fond memories.

    Yes Lol great memories them 2 games, i was at them both and also in the Beehive before the 80/81 game, the landlord told us he had never sold as much ale in his career in one afternoon.

    Barnet for me. Not a great ground but living in the South for many years it's one I went to a few times and never saw us win at. Last time was in 1998 just before we moved to the US and the only time another member of the CA clan has been to a game. My eldest daughter was 4 at the time (she has a 2 year old of her own now) and I didn't want to sit in the open away end so elected for the family 'stand'. Turnstile guy told me to just lift her over rather than pay and we ended up sitting among the wives and girlfriends of the Barnet players. They were even kind enough to take her to the toilet on a number of occasions to save me having her wade through the fluid on the floor of the gents. We lost 4-2 but had a nice day out.

    Barnet for me too. A proper football ground even though it's on the side of a hill and slopes.

    CAM - you missed the Millers 5-3 victory with a Don Page hat-trick?
    By the way - I think they've moved!

    Went to Norwich a couple of years ago & enjoyed it apart from our inept display. Good ground, good pub outside by the river & all-round nice town.

    One of very few Mike, I think there were about 250 Millers there (including CasperFrank)

    Loved the Halifax ground.lent on railing behind the goal. Felt like you were stood in a car park. Never seen us lose at Saltergate or Rochdale, both grounds full of character.

    Bradford City for me. I don't like the ground, in fact it's an ugly mismatched dump but, oh the memories!
    That 2-0 win in our promotion season, the breakaway goal by Agard and big Claude ripping his shirt off and roaring like a lion at the end of an epic battle.
    I also like Pride Park, lovely ground and brilliant atmosphere but the downside is we always lose there 😕

    Deepdale - home of Preston North End.
    My first away game and my first away game with my late Grandad.
    A proper football ground, a statue outside the ground, Tom Finney Stand, Stewards are helpful and PNE fans in general are decent to chat to.

    My Grandad passed away just before his 90th Birthday, he watched the Millers up to the age of 80.
    Despite a cataract op earlier he eventually went blind.
    On match days Saturday evening or Sunday morning we used to go down to his and take the Green Un sports paper, warmer days were spent in his greenhouse with me reading the match reports out for him.
    When it came time to leave he used to say to us " Thanks for coming, keep in touch "

    I miss my Grandad, Deepdale, Craven Cottage, iPro Stadium.......................

    Wembley both old and new.

    Reasons are pretty obvious.
