'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Stewart 'no danger'

Rotherham United got a letter from the Football League yesterday which was then published on the Football League's Official Site, which, in short, implied that there is a real danger that the new club, headed by Tony Stewart will not be allowed to start next season. Also in the letter there were concerns raised about the move to Don Valley and the clubs business plans.

Obviously, fans are going to be worried. But, Mr Stewart wants to reassure supporters that it will be 'business as usual' for the Millers.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, the Chairman said, 'I was surprised to receive the letter from the League. I think it was a strange way to do things. A lot of things they have asked for they have already got.

'This is just another hurdle for us to get over. We want to work with the League to get our share back and all resources are going into making that happen.

'By next week everything will be sorted out. I want to reassure fans that nothing has changed and that there really is nothing to worry about.'

Let's hope the Chairman is right, though we have heard that everything will be sorted 'next week' for a few weeks now. To me, this has a touch of the 'Mañana's'about it.

Hope you get everything sorted out, and we're able to play you in the first game though. Having read the letter though that response from your chairman is almost insulting to your intelligence. I hope he's doing better behind the scenes.

'nothing has changed' seems to be the operative sentiment from that little lot.

My thoughts exactly Impecunious! I just don't know who to believe anymore regarding the club - been told that often that everything is OK and then we get our hopes up only for a someone to come along and deal us another blow. I hadn't much enthusiasm for the coming season with having to move out of Rotherham but even what I had I now find is waning

It is either complacency or ineptitude on the part of the chairman. Neither bode well for his future stewardship of a business let alone something as important as a football club.

Given the overall dark tone of 'the letter' mr. stewart remonds me of an ostrich.

Good luck to the people that matter, the Rotherham fans, and look forward to an entertaining match against you.

Can someone clarify something for me. Is Mr Stewart actually your chairman, or your potential new chairman?
Dean1
Mr Stewart is our chairman and owner - well, we are led to believe that anyway! He's been paying the players wages I think since May. But, the league confused me with the Old Co and New Co.
herringthorpe
That was why I asked the question. It does not appear that he owns the company just yet. He does seem to be propping it up though.

i don't think anyone really knows who owns what tbh anymore - blind leading the blind so to speak
