Rotherham United have been at Millmoor for over one hundred years but it is looking more likely that they have played their last game there.
The owner in waiting, Tony Stewart and the landlords, The Booth Family are still in talks over the ground.
The Star says that more meetings are due this week but it is looking more and more likely that the Millers will start next seasons campaign in Sheffield at Don Valley.
I hope Mr Stewart will think long and hard about moving us away from Millmoor, and being the business man that I am led to believe he is, I'm sure he is doing that.
It's not only Millmoor we will be losing, it's the training ground at Hooton Lodge which is also the home of the Centre of Excellence, our Youth set up that we are very proud of.
I don't know how much the rent will be on Don Valley or the arrangements we will have to make to play there but one of the first things we will be losing out on is the advertising monies. We also have to think of the people employed by the club - office staff, catering staff, stewards - would they be welcome or will Don Valley employ their own people? Will there be a facility in Rotherham where we can buy game tickets from? It's a long way from the other side of town to Don Valley.
Whatever happens something has to be sorted and sorted soon - there's season tickets to think of and the players will want to know where they are playing next season. If we move away from Millmoor then training facilities have to be thought about. The football season might not start for another three months but we have to know where we stand as soon as possible.
I don't want to move away from Millmoor - but is that preferable to not having a football team at all?
