Just came across this story and it looks really good.You have done well with Rotherham United in League Two and I wish you all the best into your second season.You've done very well in signing Phillips,Faye and Diao and Chris Iwelumo.You look like you have a star-studded squad,looking at how you have managed to get players who have had experience at top level in British football.Definately be following and will check up regularly to see how you are doing.

When you have time,mind looking at my Birmingham story? Link is in my signature.

Cheers mate ;)
