As well as with events on the pitch, there are Rotherham United odds available on what goes on behind the scenes, for example Rotherham United manager odds.

History

Rotherham United are a professional football club located in South Yorkshire, England. The club currently play in England’s second tier, the Championship.

The history of Rotherham United Football Club begins in 1870. Thornhill Football Club was formed and began playing in the Sheffield & Hallamshire League. The main club in Rotherham at the time was Rotherham Town. Town went out of business before 1900, but a club featuring the same name was created. Both clubs wanted to turn professional, but it was decided that there was only room for one. In 1925 the clubs joined forces and Rotherham United were formed.

After the Second World War, Rotherham United won the Football League Third Division North Cup. Their league form improved and three successive third place finishes were followed by the Third Division North Championship.

Now in the Second Division, the club almost won promotion to the top flight in 1955. Rotherham finished on the same points as Birmingham City and Luton Town, who finished first and second, only a worse goal average prevented promotion.

Rotherham United were making steady progress in the Second Division. However, in 1968 fortunes on the pitch changed for the worse and within five years the club had been relegated twice.

Rotherham United found themselves in the Fourth Division. However, in 1974, Rotherham finished in the third promotion spot, earning entry back to the Third Division.

Rotherham United won the Third Division title in the 1980/1981 season, and with it promotion to the Second Division. 

The first half of the 1981/1982 season saw Rotherham struggle, but after the New Year the club’s performances improved dramatically. Rotherham United beat Chelsea home and away  with 6-0 and 4-1 wins. The club’s turnaround in fortunes were not enough for a promotion spot, with the club eventually finishing four point away.

The early 1990’s saw Rotherham yo yo between the Third and Fourth Divisions. They were promoted to the Third Division in 1989, but two years later the club was back in the Fourth Division. Rotherham bounced back immediately, though, and reclaimed their third tier status.

In 1992, the Premier League was introduced. This resulted in the Football League Divisions being renamed. The Second Division became Division One, the Third Division Division Two and the Fourth Division Division Three.

The club spent the 1992/1993 season in Division Two. They established themselves in this division, but a promotion push never looked likely. Five years after promotion, the club dropped back down to Division Three.

1996 saw a trip to Wembley for the first time in Rotherham United history. It was a successful visit too, Rotherham beat Shrewsbury Town to win the Football League Trophy.

Ronnie Moore became Rotherham United manager in 1997. The club began to improve its league form under Moore. A mid table finish was followed by an appearance in the play-off semi-finals, where Leyton Orient beat Rotherham on penalties.

After that near miss, Rotherham United finished second in the Division Three table in the 1999/2000 season. With that runners-up spot, the club earned promotion to Division Two.

Rather than go straight back down as many expected, Rotherham made it back to back promotions. Another runners up spot sealed promotion, and the club started the 2001/2002 season in England’s second tier, Division One.

This season was the first of four successive seasons in the second tier. In the 2002/2003 season, Rotherham looked good for a play-off spot, but as the season drew to a close their results took a turn for the worse, ending up finishing the season in 15th position.

Rotherham United struggled throughout the 2004/2005 campaign, spending most of the season rooted to the bottom of the table. Inevitably, the club were relegated back to the third tier, now called League One.

Mick Harford took over as Rotherham United manager, but was fired after the club went on a 17 game streak of draws and defeats. Alan Knill, the Rotherham United youth team coach, replaced him.

At this time, the club were experiencing serious financial problems that threatened the existence of the club. Eventually, a consortium made up of local businessmen invested in the club.

The off the field problems affected matters on the pitch, and Rotherham were almost relegated on the final day of the 2005/2006 season. However, the following season saw the club receive a ten point penalty deficit as punishment for receiving a CVA and although the club pulled these points back, injuries to key players saw Rotherham’s form nosedive. Mark Robins was given the manager’s position towards the end of the season but he couldn’t stop the club suffering yet another relegation.

The following season, Rotherham sat in and around the promotion places but their financial worries continued. In the March of that season, Rotherham entered administration again and were deducted ten points.

Before the 2008/2009 season, Tony Stewart took over the club. Stewart, via another CVA, took the club out of administration, and the club received a punishment of a 17 point deduction.

Rotherham United had to leave their ground as a result of their financial woes. Millmoor had been home to Rotherham United for 100 years, but following landlord disputes, the club move to the Don Valley Stadium, situated in Sheffield.

Despite the ongoing drama behind the scenes, Rotherham United had a surprisingly successful time of it on the pitch. The 17 point deduction was overcome quickly, and Rotherham were in the hunt for a play-off spot. This season also featured two good cup runs, one in the League Cup where Rotherham reached the round of 16 stage, and the other in the Football League trophy, where the club reached the Northern Final.

Rotherham enjoyed an excellent start to their 2009/2010 campaign, however Mark Robins then left the club to take up the manager’s job and Rotherham’s Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.

The club turned to former boss Ronnie Moore, and the club continued to impress. Moore took Rotherham to the play-off final but they suffered play-off heartache once again.

During the 2010/2011 season, the club didn’t enjoy the same success as they had throughout their previous campaign. After a poor run, Ronnie Moore left the club.

Andy Liddell was put in charge of the team on a temporary basis, and his first game in charge of Rotherham United couldn’t have gone much better with a 6-0 win over Lincoln City.

However, after this result, Rotherham began to slide back down the table. Andy Scott was appointed as manager. In his first full season, the club began well but the all too familiar slide down the table was never far away. Scott was sacked in March 2012 after a defeat to Oxford United.

Steve Evans was Scott’s replacement. The 2012/2013 season was Evans’ first full season in charge at Rotherham. It was also the first season of a new era, with Rotherham moving into the New York Stadium.

The Rotherham side were inconsistent in terms of results, but they somehow spirited to gain automatic promotion, sealing the return to League One.

The 2013/2014 season was another successful time for Rotherham, resulting in a trip to Wembley for the League One play-off final. A topsy turvy game was decided by a penalty shootout, Rotherham winning it to win back to back promotions.

Back in the second tier after nine years, the club were inconsistent in their performances. The club were given a points deduction for playing an ineligible player, and this almost cost the club their Championship place. However, safety was assured with a game to spare and the club started the 2015/2016 campaign still in the Championship.

A bad run of form in the 2015/2016 season led Steve Evans to leave the club. Neil Redfearn was given the Rotherham manager’s job but it never started well. After only 21 games in charge, Redfearn was fired.

Neil Warnock took the job in February 2016, and spurred a turnaround in form. Warnock led the club to Championship safety, in the process winning the Championship Manager of the Month award, the first time a Rotherham manager had won it.
