This post from DCFCfans really suggests that Derby are in some serious, serious ***.

Don't forget though the only reason they're in trouble is because of that nasty old Steve Gibson and the EFL...

Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots postin

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Would like it to be true but apparently that post is taken from a Nottingham Forest board, so I'd question the accuracy or why a Forest fan would know anything about the inner workings of Derby.

Even if it's not true Derby are still basically screwed. Liquidation might be their only option.

Well derby are certainly not going to get a 66 point penalty. they will probably just get the 12 point penalty due to going into administration. Maybe a few extra points for the accounts leaving them with a small chance of survival. If they get 12 points they are only 9 points off survival. They probably knew they would go into adminstration months ago, so they fought off any penalty with massive delays last season in order to take all the punishment this season instead of going into administration in League 1. A well executed plan.

Maybe, although with Wigan last year the Administration penalty was only applied when they stayed up. Had they been relegated without it the penalty would have been applied this year. The administration penalty also doesn't offset the 9 point agreement they were apparently close to for breaking FFP. So still potentially 21 points, with 12 of them applied when it will affect them most.

The 12 point deduction is this season.

It's only if you go in to administration from March onwards that they count it for the season after if you're going down anyway.

Not sure what this will achieve, but don't blame them for trying

I think it's pretty obvious Derby were ducking and diving last season by using every delaying tactic they could with the EFL. Wycombe lost their Championship place because they played with a straight bat while others cheated.

Derby fans won't have been aware of every detail but they are not stupid and surely knew a Rabbit was off and big style. When we were spun the Golden Thread yarn a while back some gullible fans lapped it all up but the majority could see straight through the cost cutting, budget bullshine.

Think the thing that gets me the most is that the person most responsible will probably be the one who won't really lose out as much as he should.. whilst the Wycombes of this world are just met with a shrug of the shoulders. Now it looks like the line is "you are kicking us while we are down, you big bullies" and they seem to think that the louder they bleat, the smaller the penalty. Not sure anyone will want to make a quick deal for a club that doesn't own its ground, but then again, sometimes things don't work out the way you think they will

Mel Morris still owns the stadium so I image a deal will be struck with the new owners.

    • I don't think they do have an embarrassment of riches, which I suppose is another point I'm making.  Bournemouth weren't that good this season, they rarely impressed me when I saw them, and didn't impress me much at all against us. Mitrovic has had a fantastic season at this level, but he still might not be good enough for Newcastle, I'm not really sure what argument you're making there?  He scored 3 goals for Fulham in the Premier League last season.  Either side of that he's scored 26 and 40 in the Championship.  All that proves is that he's more than good enough for this level, which is lower than where Newcastle aimed to be when they sold him. I am realistic about incomings, I'm also realistic about our current players.  Howson was the worst of the three midfielders last season, and needs to be replaced in the side.  It shouldn't cost much at all to bring in a better player than him, he's not even our best midfielder let alone one of the top midfielders in the Championship, so replacing him really shouldn't be difficult.  If the club can't replace a bloke that wasn't that good to begin with when we signed him then what chance have they got of improving the rest of the team adequately enough to win promotion?  A GK, a midfielder, two strikers, left sided player.  Those are our priorities, that's where we need to upgrade in my opinion.
    • Poor article that. 10 mill for Spence? Coulson a Teessider? Come on Craig Johns ffs 
    • https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/middlesbrough-loan-exit-round-up-24049100   This article mentions we are releasing Ste Walker this summer. His release is no surprise but dont think club have confirmed his release. Article again mentions figure of above £10m for Spence. Echo saying £20m. Hopefully somewhere in between.
    • Bournemouth didn't spend much last year, probably about the same as we did I think? For some reason they clearly rated other people ahead of the lad.  Nothing wrong with that of course, and it doesn't need to be a reflection of his ability.  My issue would be if he was our sole midfield signing, then we'd be putting a lot of faith in someone who was taken out of the Bournemouth side for whatever reason.  At some point we need to be bringing in players who will replace those we already have otherwise we're just not improving.
    • Bournemouth have an embarrassment of riches. Just because they deem a player to be not good enough for them, it doesn’t mean that we should turn our noses up at them. Mitrovic was deemed not good enough for Newcastle who were struggling at the bottom of the premier league at the time, he went to Fulham and has set a frankly ridiculous scoring record which could stand for decades. We need to be realistic about incomings. I think we all accept that we need to bring in several players, and given how well Jonny played last season is it worth the amount it would cost to bring in a better player? We can’t afford to upgrade every single player in the squad so we need to prioritise imo.
