Rotherham United are saying goodbye to Manager, Mark Robins and with that goodbye has to come a big THANK YOU.
Mark is on his way to Championship Barnsley after cutting his managerial teeth with the Millers, who he joined in March 2007. And what a managerial baptism it`s been!
While he`s been manager, the club has been deducted numerous points, gone into administration, had weeks without wages, moved out of their own town to an athletics stadium in Sheffield while training at the Keepmoat in Doncaster. And Mark Robins has come through all that probably a bit battered but a lot wiser. He's left the club in a great position - top of League Two and with players that I feel can take us much higher.
Mark Robins was born in Ashton-Under-Lyne in December 1969 and began his football career with Manchester United - many saying it was Robins who saved Alex Fergusson`s career when he came off the bench and headed in a ball to beat Nottingham Forest in an FA Cup game that Manchester United were expected to lose. Lose and Fergusson was out! Mark then went on to spend three seasons with Norwich City before moving to Leicester, where he had loan spells with Copenhagen and Reading. In 1998 he moved to Spain to play with CD Ourense, although he never played a game for them before moving to play with Panionios of Greece. He had a loan spell with Manchester City before playing for Walsall for a year. He came to Rotherham in 2000 and played over one hundred games, scoring forty-four goals. He played a season with Sheffield Wednesday and was at Burton for year before moving back to Rotherham in 2007 to take up the manager`s chair.
I personally think it's just been a bit of a shame the way things have panned out over the last week and Mark Robins has left on a bit of a 'downer' instead of being able to say goodbye. I want to wish Mark and the rest of the backroom team good luck in their future. I'm not sure he's done the right thing but then again, that's probably why I'd never make a good football manager!
Now, let's get behind the men in charge of the Millers at the moment and then behind whichever manager comes in - let's prove we, the fans, are UNITED
