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

RUFC - Chairman 'We Will Live Within Our Means'

Rotherham United Chairman Tony Stewart told the supporters who turned up to the Fans` Forum on Thursday night at the New York Stadium that, although he will be giving Manager Steve Evans a 'good budget` for next season the club will not be living beyond it`s means.

Also saying that his main aim is for the club to be in the Championship, Mr Stewart admitted to being ambitious but with a leaning to the cautious.

'The Board are sensible people and Paul Douglas keeps his hand on the tiller and we have a Financial Manager who has a ball and chain on us,` the Chairman said. 'The manager will get a good budget and it is a budget that will last all season but we will be living within our means while insuring we have a competitive edge and some longevity.`

Asked about the aim to get the club higher, Mr Stewart carried on, 'It`s about seeking progress. If you`re climbing a mountain then you don`t get halfway up, say what a lovely view it is and then start going back down.`

Rotherham United and Tony Stewart have had a bit of a bumpy ride over the last few years and there were some, and I`ll admit to being one of those, who thought he`d probably taken on a bit more than he could chew when we sat in a bleak stadium with just a handful of fans in Sheffield. And there must have been times when things weren`t going to plan when he felt like throwing his hands in the air and walking away but give him his due he stuck with us and got us back home.

When he first took us on I always thought, when he spoke, he was always thinking at the back of his mind 'what am I doing here` and I was a bit surprised last season how little we heard from the Chairman but I think he was probably anxious to please us Millers and not let us down.

Listening to him now he seems so much more relaxed and even seems to be enjoying it - and so he should be. Let`s hope that continues.
