Former Owl in-line for Millers post

Former Owl in-line for Millers post

Former Wednesday manager Brian Laws is being linked with the Rotherham United manager's job.

The Millers are on the lookout for a new permanent boss after sacking Andy Scott from the position a week ago after less than a year in charge of the npower League 2 club.

And Laws, who's also managed Grimsby Town, Scunthorpe United and Burnley, the latter in the Premier League, has become favourite to take over.

He's been out of work since being sacked as Turf Moor boss in December 2010 but could be the ideal candidate for Rotherham thanks to his promotion success with the Iron.

Laws still lives close to Rotherham following his time with Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Wednesday and could see the move as the ideal chance to get back into management.

Mark Robins, Sean O'Driscoll, Steve Evans and Lee Clark have also been linked with the post.

It seems to be comming a trend for failed British premier league managers to take jobs at the lower end of the scale. I Wonder why, anybody got any idea.

I think the 'trend' now is for chairmen/ owners to panic and sack their managers too soon, and it's not just confined to the PL either. And rather than head for a tribunal to fight a case against unfair dismissal it now seems normal to send these 'failed' managers out on gardening leave, which means they continue to collect their wages for the duration of their original contracts unless they find another job in the meantime. Which would explain why some managers seem to drop off the radar for a couple of years to suddenly reappear when their mortgage payments are due. That might sound a bit harsh but I bet it's not far from the truth in the case of Brian Laws and one or two others. He did a valiant job for us under some lousy circumstances but his brief spell with Burnley was a disaster. He got dropped into the middle of a relegation fight and just kept on falling. I reckon he'd do very well at Rotherham assuming the chairman there gives him longer than twelve months.
