Whilst doing an interview with Sky Sports, the chairman was asked about the dream of taking them Rotherham up to the Premier League, he said: “Talk to Huddersfield. Talk to Barnsley. When Huddersfield went up, we were spending the same amount as Huddersfield at that time, they went north, we went south.

“It’s not just about money. It’s about being able to maximise what you can do. There’s an element of luck – in anything, in life – but I think [it’s about] getting the right people with the right attitude to pull together, not just on the pitch but off the pitch.

“I’ve had 10 years. I’m still learning but I have learnt a lot.

“Yeah – the ‘Utopia’, the ‘El Dorado’, the ‘Promised Land’, as they say. It’s a target. Like all targets in life, even though it may seem to certain fans impossible, we have to try and dream and make sure we can make the impossible possible.”


It’s not the first time he’s brought it up.

In 2012, when the club were in League Two, the chairman said that he would not be happy until his side are promoted to the Premier League.

And in 2014, after the Millers won promotion from League One, he Stewart spoke again – “It will be when, not if, definitely,” he told BBC Radio Sheffield.


After reading up on the Rotherham chairman’s plans, football fans took to social media to debate whether he could be right, there were Millers fans who stated how they were starting to get sick of him speaking about his dream – check out those tweets along with comments on the next page.
