RUFC - Last game at Millmoor?

Rotherham United's Official Site have put out a brief statement today, which, personally, I find rather odd.

The statement reads : Whilst negotiations to find a new owner are progressing well, the question of whether or not the Millers will be playing at Millmoor next season remains a real one.

We don't believe this is the time or place to discuss this matter in detail but we are aware that this could be a momentous day in the clubs history.

For this reason we felt we must inform our supporters as we understand the strong sentimental ties everyone feels for the old ground and it's 100 year history.

If they don't believe this is the time and place with one game to go, when do they believe the time and place is? And, to be honest, I don't think that statement informs the supporters of anything.

Do we read between the lines and assume that Millmoor will be shutting it's gates after Saturday's game with Barnet? If so, is that the end of Rotherham United? Or, does it mean we will still have a team but they will be playing elsewhere?

Well, whichever it is, I rather think there might be more people make the effort to go to Millmoor on Saturday than perhaps would have done without this statement - or, was that the idea?

As an interested outsider, i'd say it's near enough a firm statement you are saved but moving to pastures greener. Best of british guys.
