Having just beaten high-fliers Birmingham away from home, a week after turning over Cardiff City at home and ten days after giving league leaders Brighton a run for their money. And the week before gained a point at Charlton.

So. Can't be for footballing reasons. Did he eat the Eric Twigg Pukka Pies stand?

Apparantly it's because the board and managnment wanted to go in different directions.

2 strange manager departures in a day.Who next Chris Hughton.

The board wanted to go upwards. Management didn't mind which direction as long as there was a cafe.

Strange decision, because love him or loathe him, Evans did a good job with Rotherham. Took them from being a small Sheffield club in League 2 to being a small Sheffield club in the Championship with aspirations to being a small Sheffield club in League 1.

I'm looking forward to reading the views of Lee Gregory and Millwall fans, anyway. Pity there isn't a vacancy up in Bradford, as well.

Who is going to be the man to take Rotherham back down a division? Ronnie Moore? Sep Blatter? My money's on Carvalhal.

Maybe the club replaced the bacon rolls at the staff canteen with fruit and this upset Evans.

Mental.

However, understandable when you consider Paul Jewell is available!

Maybe he just didn't want to be the first to sack a manager, so waited until just after someone else did?

Honestly couldn't give a toss. Bloke is clearly an arse but then so are most football managers.
Would be nice to see Rotherham go the same way as Blackpool, but that's based more on the supporters than anything else.

The non league forum will go into meltdown. Do it Steve, become the VISION

Rarely has a corporate buzzword been misappropriated so shamelessly than at the Silverlake.

Evans and Eastleigh: a pie made in heaven.

Evans wanted Mc Donalds and the board wanted a salad?

Strange timing after 2 wins on bounce including a Brum side in form. Running out of clubs with bundles of cash to throw around, can Fatty actually do a decent job without money? Why doesn,t the mascara wearing twat try Crawley again ? Next to bottom, money pit dried up, let us see how good you really are you vile turd.

Umm, the guy lifted Rotherham from League 2 into the Championship on little money and with a small fanbase. Would like to see any number of Premier League "special ones" do that. You make it sound like he's had huge amounts to play around with. He hasn't. Not since the Revenue had a sniff round his capacious underpants some years back.

Beg to differ Herts Wolf, they had biggest budget by a country mile when Gillingham won League 2 in 2012/13 . Also when you won the League one 2013/14 they definitely had a top 6 budget and spent a load of money. Rotherham had pot loads to spend in League 2 and also spent plenty in League one, by pot loads i mean in comparison to majority of clubs not in comparison to Championship budgets hence why last year they punched above their weight.

See post on Championship finances.

Edit:
Decided to elaborate on this a bit.
When they won the playoffs in League 1 they didn't have "a top six budget" and they actually spent very wisely. They had the highest turnover to wages ratio of any club currently in the Championship (by quite a margin) so they were spending well within their means.
Although the 2014/15 accounts are not yet out for clubs and their financial performance may not be as good in the Championship, Rotherham were one of the three best run of the current crop of Championship clubs. When they jumped out of League 1, they had a lower wage bill than five other Championship teams that were then in League 1 and probably at least a handful more.

You may not like Rotherham and you may not like Evans but they are a well run club with what appears to be a stable financial footing (at least until 2013/14).

Yes i am not disputing Championship finances, i am saying in League one and Two with both Crawley and Rovrum he had loads to spend hence they rightly were expected to go up, now they are a small fish in a big pond and one of the lowest budgets and spenders.

Gutted. What a manager he's been for us. Will go down as a RUFC legend without doubt. Also met him on several occasions and is a top fella despite his reputation within the game.

Still unclear what's gone off. Must be something serious as him and the chairman have always been very close.

Hasselbaink or Stuart Gray for me, realistically.

Shocked by the sacking. Thinking about potential replacements who would join us? Stuart Gray? Neil Redfern?
