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.)

    • You know I stopped saying things like that when I left Marton Road infants school back in the early 60s.  😄😄
    • I agree with you. I think Hugill did go to ground a lot but probably because when he played, the closest person near him when ball was played to him were the fans in the stands. Probs thought best i can do is win a free kick. QPR and Preston showed when you use him properly, i.e in a front 2 he is actually very decent at this level. A lot better than he showed here imo.
    • Has anyone been watching these? They have been quite decent listens. They have had one with Mowbray and another with McClaren, Beswick and Harrison as well so far.  
    • I think Hugill was all too often on the ground and I couldn't stand that in a big physical lad, more-so than the regular diving player... but I also think he'd have scored more goals under Woodgate than he did Pulis. Though you could probably apply that to a lot of strikers.
    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
