Tell ya what, football’s back – and we have a new outside-the-Premier-League favourite team.
We only happened upon the tweet by chance this afternoon, but it sealed the deal for us as Rotherham United showed that clubs can still be civilised if they try:
TEAM | Just a little side note that #rufc's starting team actually line up 1 to 11 this afternoon.

If you were being very picky, you’d say that their midfield was 8-4-10-7 with 9 and 11 up front, but if that’s your first reaction then you probably can’t take any joy from anything.
Unfortunately for Rotherham, they lost an early 2-0 lead and had to settle for a point at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but they gained a fan, at least.
