Rotherham United have whittled down the potential new manager to five applicants and with interviews taking place this week, I for one, hope that this time, whoever we get in, will be here for the foreseeable future.

It seems to me that if football clubs are having a problem, the first thing they do is sack the manager - and, Rotherham United are no exception to that. Since the turn of the century the Millers have had six managers with another one on the way. Ronnie Moore was in charge as the Millers joined the twenty-first century followed by Mick Harford who lasted eight months, Alan Knill who lasted fifteen months, Mark Robins who was with the club for almost two and a half years before Moore came back. Ronnie left the club 'by mutual consent' after seventeen months in charge and, after Andy Liddell and Paul Warne took temporary charge, Andy Scott took over in March, with Tony Stewart relieving him of his duties last week. .

We've been told that there were over forty applicants for the vacant managers post - a lot of managers out of work aren't there? This weekend it's understood that the Chairman didn't go to watch the Millers for their first visit to Crawley, presumingly because he was sorting the 'wheat from the chaff' (and, with that many applicants I'm thinking there will be an awful lot of chaff among them).

While we've been at Don Valley we've seen three managers (not including caretakers) in charge and, if rumours are right, another one will be installed before we leave. It's not a great track record is it (no pun intended). There must be some desperate people out there to want to come to a club that 'throws managers on the scrapheap' at the drop of a hat. But then, there is a brand spanking new stadium to look forward too.

I really do hope that Mr Stewart and his board sit down and think hard and long about who they are appointing this time.

Another hope I have is, that when this person is appointed, that the fans get behind him and buy into what he is doing. I really do think that the last two men in charge have divided the fans. After all, we are all Millers and all want the same thing - don`t we?
