Alright, can any of our elder statesman tell me about Neil Hague? Reason I ask is that a friend of a friend knows him but his time was a little before my first game (and in fact my first birthday).
His last game for the Millers was as sub in a 4-3 home win over Argyle. He made his debut for us a fortnight later. Argyle were managed at that time by Ellis Stuttard. His opposite number at Rotherham was Jim McAnearney who had been very successful as a player at Home Park during Stuttard's first spell as Argyle manager in the early 60s. A year before Jim had sold Jim Furnell to Argyle and encouraged interest in Hague. McAnearney had taken over from Tommy Docherty in November 1968. In 2011 he told me that the wage bill he inherited from Docherty was unsustainable at Millmoor and the directors had told him to reduce it. "I was still doing that when Neil went. He was a good lad and I was sorry to see him go but if we had a decent offer in them days the Board took it and we signed someone who we could pay less."pilgrimage wrote: If I remember rightly be played for Rotherham against us and we signed him while we were up there.
