    Much speculation in recent days about Steve Evans' future with Rotherham United, amid links with the vacancy at Sheffield Wednesday. But the Scotsman remains focused on his role at the New York Stadium...

The meeting was primarily to discuss a matter which relates to the press speculation over the last 24 hours. in that meeting I reiterated my commitment to Rotherham United FC and the project I started some 18 months ago.

  • [manchesterunited] MOYES REFLECTS
    David Moyes has been speaking about his time with Everton as he prepares to go to Goodison Park as Manchester United manager for the first time since he left over the summer. 
    I had a great time at Everton. It was a great club for me at the time in my career when I left Preston North End. They were fabulous to me, they gave me the chance to succeed the best I could at the club. We had one or two early years when it was a bit up and down but overall we had a pretty good level of consistency and tended to finish pretty high up the division.

    It seems he is not quite sure what sort of reception he will get though...
    I think the reception could be mixed at times but I think they know their football and they know where the club has gone. I think more importantly they will understand the players in the team, the majority I brought in and I think they will understand there were a lot of good players brought in. But it's football and you never know.

    David Moyes in his Everton days - will he be all smiles tomorrow night?
