rotherham hit back at begging claim.

a badly timed and indeed incorrect article on the vital doncaster site as angered the people of rotherham

the site claimed the millers are BEGGING, and indeed are not in reality going to go out of business

whats angered the people is that the above points are both incorrect and hold no sustance whatsoever, they claim its ironic that the millers waited til the transfer window closed before revealing these facts,

they have been in talks daily since before christmas trying to solve this before it got to this situation.

doncaster have been in a similar position and one would have thought they would have had a little more symphony with rotherhams plight,

it should also be pointed out that the players rotherham have just signed have been done with a big helping hand from sheffield united who have helped immensley with the players wages

rotherham have always had close links with sheffield united, its just a shame that its neighbours doncaster rovers cant share the same sentiment.

I have removed the article, maybe you could answer these questions for me. Why did Rotherham sign Paul Shaw if they knew the financial situation was that dire? Why did they also sign two loan players, when at the time they were making a contribution towards the wages? Why did you sell your better players during the transfer window? Why aren't players being asked to take a pay cut? Bit strange dont you think? They can't have just been relying on 117k from Southend! What about the other 883k?

At the moment we are still trading as normal - that's not to say the players won't be asked to take a wage cut within the next couple of weeks. We sold our better players (at a loss I might add) to get some money to carry on. And yes, the 117k would certainly have helped then as it would now. It's not only Sheff U who are helping from around these parts - Wednesday and Barnsley are also digging into their pockets, of which we are very grateful. It's a shame we've had to come to this - but I honestly don't think we'll be the last club to ask for help.

Think its a disgrace that any lower league side would question the financial plight of another club. Almost all football clubs are struggling financially and for real football supporters that is terrible news.
