RUFC - Who's out there waiting for a chance?

RUFC - Who's out there waiting for a chance?

Rotherham United are managerless at the moment - although, of course, we've got the double act of Andy Liddell and Paul Warne in temporary charge.

But, how temporary is temporary?

If results go our way in the final six games of the season could the two - plus Andy Dibble and Nicky Eaden - be given the job on a more permanent basis? Or is the Chairman already on the look out for someone to take over.

It's understood that there has been a lot of interest in the vacant Manager's seat, which is what we were also told when Ronnie Moore was unveiled in September 2009.

Let's say the Chairman decides he needs someone to come in and take over - who's out there at the moment that could do a job for us?

There's the likes of someone who has looked after teams locally such as Kevin Blackwell, Brian Laws, Alan Irvine, Peter Taylor.

And what would you think of having another former Miller in charge such as Chris Wilder, Bobby Williamson, Rob Scott, Paul Hurst, Martin MacIntosh.

Maybe we could get someone in the mould of Paul Ince or Jim Gannon?

Or, could it be an ideal opportunity for someone who hasn't quite got into management yet - such as Michael Appleton, who has had a shot at managing West Brom, albeit in caretaker mode or what about Kevin McDonald, who is currently at Aston Villa?

Does Rotherham United need a young manager who can perhaps grow up with the team.

Whatever the Chairman decides to do, at the moment we have Lidds and Warney and I think we need to give them the support they deserve.

What sort of Manager would you like to see in charge of Rotherham?
We want you to tell us who you'd like to be our next boss

No offence but why would you want Jim Gannon? I'd give it 5 miniutes before Le Fondre hands in a transfer request after been forced to play as a holding midfielder to add to the teams 'defensive structure'. It will all be the fans fault as you don't understand his genius like intellect. You won't like him, the players won't like him, the board won't like him and he won't like you!!

LOL - I didn't actually say we wanted Gannon - just thinking about who is out there and available really. Personally, I'd like a young manager in like we had with Mark Robins

We move in 2012, DISI - hopefully! The former manager was hoping to attract bigger named players to the new stadium (Exodus Geohaghon was one I think ....!)
