RUFC - Robins linked with Tykes

Well, I suppose it was bound to happen. Barnsley and Simon Davey part company by 'mutual consent' and the rumour mongers start linking Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins, with the vacant seat.

The Tykes and Davey parted on Saturday evening after their defeat against Reading at Oakwell which leaves them with just one point from five games and in the bottom three of the Championship.

And, EatSleepSport has put Robins in the frame for the job.

Speaking to The Star, Barnsley director, Don Rowing said, 'Simon (Davey) did his best for the club but we had a lengthy discussion on Saturday evening and it was agreed to part ways.' And, Mr Rowing finished by saying, 'We have been inundated with inquiries over the weekend.'

Well, I bet Mark Robins wasn't one of those who was inquiring - and I doubt very much whether he will be leaving the Millers just yet - then again, stranger things have happened in football

I can't see it Either, They have stuck with MR for some time and it has been an up and down rise. He has now moulded RU into his team and they have overcome the traumas of last season and are now a force to be reckoned with in thei division. They will soon be in the same division as the tykes as they pass going up.

It was the Barnsley fans who started the rumour I believe. Though, as they say, there is no smoke without fire. But Robins has said he is happy at Rotherham and is staying today
