Hasselbaink would not leave Burton for you. Guaranteed.

Looking at the odds, I'm surprised Clough isn't more fancied. He'd do a great job at a club like Rotherham.

Hasselbaink wouldn't leave Burton for us? Based on what exactly? He'd be bonkers not to.

He'd triple his wages, triple the crowds his team plays in front of, much better ground and facilities, raise his own profile, test himself against better managers and use it as a stepping stone if he is good enough to bigger and better things.

I know you big eared boys on farms in Derby and Burton like to look out for one another, but what you said is night on ridiculous.

He probably won't even make the shortlist as he's not proven at this level.

JFH will cut his teeth at Burton for a while longer, however when he does leave it won't be for a club like Rotherham imho.

Ooooo touched a neve have we? :lol:

Hasselbaink is highly rated, and he can and will do much better than Rotherham.

If he will do much better than Rotherham, then he will do much better than Derby.

Which means he will jump straight from a League 2 club, had one good season and will secure a Premiership club.

You may be right, but it would only end on tears.

If he's that good, he wouldn't be at Burton Albion.

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.

The latest finances for Rotherham are for when they were in League 1 when they clearly were not one of the biggest spenders...... and their turnover was much more than twice what they spent on wages. That's a better ratio than at most other clubs. They also more or less broke even in League 1 and League 2, suggesting they weren't splashing out on players either.

Rammy are you waiting for the fans to turn on Clements with his Derby brand of tikka takka football so you can pinch another of our managers?

Why not? It is his first job in management (in this country, second after a decent spell at Antwerp) after McClaren recommended him to them after he'd been coaching here for a short period. He's won 27 out of 42 games, which is quite some record with what a lot of people agree is a very average side.

The Derby job is not and will not be available, but our spending power could quite easily persuade him. He will be a Championship manager by Christmas, but it will be at a much better club than Rotherham.

Nah please try and keep Hasselbaink. Would absolutely love it if you got promoted again, and if you keep hold of him I could see it happening!

Holloway is too busy spouting shite on Sky Sports to manage a football club.

And right on cue, here comes the tryhard. I'm sure his son will like his thankless attempt at being funny.

Better facilities? I don't think so. Don't Burton train at St George's park? Not sure you could get much better than that as a training ground.

Correct, they have full use of the facilities.

Ok, fine if they still train there?

But I mean better facilities in terms of assets we own (corporate and hospitality facilities within the ground).

Burton are forunate to be training there. it's nothing to do with Burton Albion.

The board wanted to go upwards. Management didn't mind which direction as long as there was a cafe.
This is the best thing I have ever seen on any football forum :pmsl:

We own our own ground all paid for with no debt and the ground contains plenty of good quality corporate and hospitality facilities

Absolute stunned! very strange decision from the board after winning back to back matches, cant be for football reasons why he's been sacked.


Yes, I tend to have the same opinion.

Not being an admirer of the man, possibly because of his "charisma" :bg:
~ I did think he had a very healthy relationship with his employer, inasmuch as he could talk freely and sometimes demean {almost} the hand that fed him. But it was just joshin' I think.I can't think of another manager so direct and uncompromising in his remarks about his employer.

And it all seemed to go down as Steve being Steve ~ no reprimands nor any public dispute.
Just Joshin' talk.

So, I am like you Reaper, a bit confused. It can't be for football reasons, not after the last 3 weeks.

He reminded me originally of a Barry Fry, a downmarket version ~ if such exists.
Barry Fry had 48 pro's {cheap} - signed up at the same time, and he had a his P45 pencilled in when David Sullivan found out that Bazza was taking a cut on all transfers ~ in and out ~ apparently the way they did it in his unsupervised earlier days.
Karren Brady as CEO then took over all financials regarding transfers.
I'm not saying Evans did that.

It's just that the similarity in my mind to Bazza Fry made me think twice.
Laugh-a-lot and get away with a lot.

Not footie reasons, I'm sure.

:eek:

Stayed off here as it's fucking boring, other forum was much busier.

I know there'd be people desperate to see what I thought...

What a sad and quite frankly ridiculous decision to let him leave, we will do no better and it just signs off our relegation (which wouldn't have happend if he stayed). There's only one reason for it and all it could possibly be and that's that Tont Stewart won't let new signings leave (agree with him), won't renew exisiting loan deals or sanction new ones, Evans said fuck it I'll leave then and Tony Stewart said no worries. Trigger for it would have been renewing Vadis' loan deal, we were paying 12k a week of his wages (massive amount for us) and Tony Stewart obviously didn't fancy it any longer. Ironically that also would have been the compromise in the situation they should have settled on, just renew Vadis' loan deal and leave everything else be (fucking good player btw too).

So now we lose our greatest ever manger (on a par with Ronnie IMO) and we'll be worse off for it. Steve Evans will succeed wherever he goes and we'll suffer from this point onwards.

Had the very best of my footballing memories because of Steve Evans and countless nights out and weekends away because of where he's took us, so I'm not affraid to say I love the man and that I'm extremely sad.

I'm also concerned about there we go from here. (It'll be Eric Black on a permanent basis so he can sack him and start again when we go down).

My pick would be Nigel Pearson, his son has been training with us for two months with Guly Do Prado (who Tony Stewart won't sign) but I know that won't happen. Failing that bring back King Ronnie.

Sorry to hear that you are suffering, extremely sad and extremely concerned.
Still, look on the bright side, at least your sadness will cheer the rest of the forum up.

On the bright side, kudos for admitting, above, to trying to use inside information for financial gain.

It should take a miracle for the deluded Bristol City lot to cheer them up.

Tha's more chance of John Pearson kidda, spoke to Big Nige recently, Rotherham is definitely beneath him.

Agree with everything you say apart from bringing back Ronnie Moore, we will struggle to find a winner and great motivator like Steve Evans who always seem to win the big matches under pressure when it mattered. I would love to know the real reason why he was sacked but unfortunately we'll never know. My best days supporting the millers has been under Evans by far then any other manager and i think we'll go back to our boring selfs from before, always losing big games and no passion on the pitch, hope im wrong. I would love someone like Nigel Pearson but i don't think that's realistic so ill go for Jimmy Floyd if we could pursuade him to come.
