Ladies and gentlemen… Matt Nicholls from Bring Me The Horizon…Who would be the most rock ‘n’ roll signing your club could make?I don’t know if Rotherham could afford many!

It was more computer game posters. I did have loads of football posters though. Mainly ones from Shoot magazine with Ryan Giggs and all the classic 90s players.Elvis was the king of rock ‘n’ roll, Michael Jackson the king of pop… Who’s the king of football?Steve Evans – he’s mental!

He’s got massive potential but needs more game time. Ben Pringle’s departure was a bit s**t. It was maybe time to go, but he was a big personality and a definite fan favourite.Which footballer would you refuse complimentary tickets to one of your gigs?Any player from Sheffield WednesdayWhat’s the best/worst football song ever recorded?The best has to be Three Lions.
