Loanee full back Danny Coid gives an in depth interview about his move from Blackpool and his time with the Millers so far. The 29 year-old missed the Milelrs loss at Yor in midweek after a promising debut against Oxford last weekend, and is likely to return to the starting line up at Crewe tomorrow.And having been at Blackpool for 14 years he talks about his time at the seaside plus his move to Rotherham.He told todays Tiser: "My time there has got to come to an end one day. The team did so well last year and I was injured all season, so I have no arguments really. Before I got injured I was playing in the pre-season games and the manager was saying he wanted me playing but unfortunately I had a long-term knee injury which dented my career at Blackpool. "I'm a long way off the first team and I realised how far when our manager made those controversial ten changes. I didn't even get to travel to Villa or anything and it was then I knew I had to try and get out as soon as I could." Coid explained: "I was at training having a cup of tea and sulking because I wasn't in the team when our coach, Steve Thompson, told me Rotherham were interested and wanted me as soon as possible. I only needed a little think because I need games and I was fading away at Blackpool. I'm 29 now and I need to get out there. "I've had a few options in the past and not taken them for various reasons but Rotherham is a good move for me. "I have an option for another year at Blackpool at the end of this season but the way things are going I don't think I will be getting it."Blackpool as a club has progressed dramaticall since the days when I first played at the old-style Bloomfield Road but he has come in and made some changes and it's worked for the best. I think Ian is a great manager and a great fella. His team talks are brilliant— he has the lads in stitches." Coid showed his quality from right back with an assured debut and it brought back memories of earlier times with Blackpool.  "I know League Two from my time at Blackpool and I think the standard has got a lot better over the last eight or ten years. Last Saturday was totally different to what I'm used to. I'm used to having time on the ball and passing it but now I'm getting closed down in a second and I've got to hoof it. "Just because I'm at Blackpool in the Prem doesn't mean I'm going come out and run the show. It doesn't work like that. You've got to do the right things and even I needed help and someone like Nick Fenton, whose experienced, was a big help. "The lads here try and pass it and do the right things and I think I've come to a good club with a good manager."Welcome to MillersMadHere's our LATEST Messageboard topics MillersMAD are proud sponsors of Miller Bear's home kit
