Rotherham United Manager Neil Warnock has been talking to Rob Staton of Radio Sheffield today and intimated that there was a North/South divide in football.

Speaking ahead of the Millers travelling to take on Wolves tomorrow the Millers Boss said, ‘What I enjoy is people going home from a game having enjoyed it.

‘I like tackles and headers and shots but I really like it that the fans can go home having had a good day in which the lads on the pitch have given their all.

‘I know a lot of modern coaches have their notepads and they want to do A, B, C, D but forget that if you’re not very good at A you shouldn’t move on to B, C and D. But that’s how coaching is at the moment.

‘But nothings changed in football. It’s entertainment. Up here in Yorkshire it is slightly different to down South. Up here they appreciate more of the rolling your sleeves up and giving what you’ve got whereas down South it’s probably a bit more technically minded. But it’s still the same principle and you’ve got to work hard.’

Going on to talk about his tie in charge of Rotherham the Gaffer was told that Chairman Tony Stewart has the ambition of getting the club into the Premier League one day.

‘I think that’s nigh on impossible,’ the Millers Boss admitted. ‘Next year we are talking about clubs on six or seven times our wage bill. It’s very, very difficult and if I came out and said we’d h ave a good chance next year because we’ve had a good run now then Id be looking at Jack Nicholson’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest tomorrow night.

‘You’ve got to be realistic. What Rotherham have got to do is try and establish themselves in the Championship while improving at the same time.

‘But whoever is in charge next year it will be a great challenge.’
