Within the last thirty minutes the Rotherham United Board have issued a press release.

The release is on our site and on the Official Site CLICK HERE

The bit that I think is most important to us, the fans is:

‘We are conscious of a need to protect the club from any possible action from any of it’s creditors. In order to cmbat this we have filed a ‘Notice of intention to appoint an administrator.

‘This does not mean the club is in administration or even that it will necessarily go into administration.

‘Instead it protects the club from possible hostile actions on a time when the club needs to be fully focussed on finding new investment.

‘Clearly the threat of administration will recede if a serious investor can now be found. This is something we all want and something the club needs quickly.

‘However, if no deal can be brokered then administration would be the only option for the club and that would be a great shame as it would mean a points deduction.’

Personally, I have no idea what to make of this. Can you go into administration twice? Who is going to come into save us? If we get the minus ten points we can clearly say goodbye to promotion.

I have to say that this stinks.
