Did they? Transfermarkt says 8.2 mil euros. But they are not always correct. Still it’s absurd for a club in their position. 

According to the Telegraph it is £10m with clauses, just under 8 without.

Can we all spare a thought for poor Wayne Rooney? The lad has well and truly got himself into a championship relegation battle now😂. Probably looking at ways to get out of his contract as we speak

Rob Dorsett from Sky reckons that the sale and lease back isn't an issue, it's that the EFL value the stadium lower than Derby's valuation.  If that's the case then this could run a while.  I assume that the EFL had it valued themselves and presumably asked if £80m was even close to realistic.  Once they've been told no it isn't they've decided to hold them in breach of the FFP rules.

The sale and lease back was never the problem, in theory that is completely within the rules.

However BS those rules still are lol. That whole thing stunk from the ground up but the fact they sold it for twice its apparent listed valuation turns out to be the bit the EFL don't like.

If the EFL don’t think that Derby’s stadium was worth £80 million then why would the EFL allow the sale to happen? Can see Derby getting away with this

Because the EFL aren't actually capable of assessing what it's worth.  They'll have had it valued by someone and that valuation is what the EFL will be basing this on.  The problem is that Derby will say that they had it valued and that was the valuation they based their sale on.  If Derby can prove that their valuation was legit then the EFL won't have a case and Derby will be fine.  If not then they are in some bother.

The son of De Jong's agent has been release by Barcelona , 6 months after signing a contract with a 100m Euro buy out clause ...do you think something fishy might have been going on there?

Derby based their valuation on the ground having a roof and retractable pitch. Which it doesn't have but could be added. That would allow them to use it year round and during the season for non football activity.

It's total nonsense and they know it.

Gibson threatening to sue the EFL has forced this and I'm very pleased. I bet all the other chancers are getting very nervous.

Is this true? I've literally just got in and seen the news but this would seem to be a huge mis-step if the above is true. You surely can't value what you don't have. You can value potential, maybe (the housing market certainly seems to 😄) but not the existence of something that doesn't exist.

I believe it is true, Derby valued their ground based on other potential events they could hold there in the right circumstances.

So  £100,000 a seat piano recital by Wayne Rooney, possible but not likely.

Derby won't get away with it this time, they'll get a big fine. They more than likely won't get a points deduction (although they should.)

    • I want goals today and more than one. Derby are woeful at the minute.
    • He should put a couple of grand on that if he is so sure ..  bookies offering 50/1...  
    • Only 3 nil to Derby, looks like your starting to warm to the team.
    • I was thinking an offer more like £10K but then again I don't think he has fit into any Manager's system since he has been here so unless we build a team around his strengths I don't see what he brings to the table. Due to those limitations I would let him go in January if someone did offer him something just to save on the rumoured £35K a week (around a £1M of wages saved). It would leave us light on Strikers but I reckon we could take a budget gamble elsewhere and save ourselves a fortune and be no worse off. Its not going to happen of course as nobody will buy anyone who has 6 months remaining of a contract, they will just sign a pre agreement but if they did urgently want him I wouldn't stand in his or their way. A Premiership loan could more than adequately cover plus Fletcher would be returning soon.
