'Other Boro stuff'

This situation sounds an awful lot like Mel Morris and the clubs accounts, which haven't been submitted since 17/18 😬

According to Derby fans MM has sold up his properties locally and is now enjoying the charms and delights that Barbados can offer.

Superb article from The Athletic published today... Gives you a real sense that something special is being built. We've been crying out for this for so long.   Michael Walker 2h ago  2 

It is emotional blackmail and the situation has been clearly fabricated, if you look at the handwriting its obvious that Wayne Rooney wrote that letter. 

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

I suspect Sports Direct will wait until the 11th hour as suggested above and step in to clear the Tax bill on condition that Morris sells the ground to them for £20M.

They will also agree take on the liability for the Boro and Wycombe claim (probably already privately sorted and agreed). Ashley gets a bargain, DCFC get saved and the EFL breathe a sigh of relief.

Who on earth seriously bids on eBay before the final 10 seconds? Potential buyers know from all the bleating that they hold all the aces as the Administrators have effectively backed themselves into a corner by sticking their heads in the sand.

At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if it came out that MM actually owns Quantuma through one of his shell companies. Then man is a crook without morals. But i suppose the Derby fans can start a crowdfunding to pay the HMRC.

Funny I was thinking along those lines Borodane. MM appoints this company as administrators and they use the same diversionary tactics and disinformation as MM did, hmmmhh strange!

Also the preferred bidder for the club they wanted to announce last week is headed up by old and existing County directors and club officers,

Also add the fact that the administrators have had a bid for the club but they didn’t respond to the offer so after about 2 months the American withdrew it.

Does anyone know a retired CID bloke who would perhaps like to look into it?

Earlier today someone mentioned that there was someone fitting that bill over Derbyshire way, but better hurry as he might get offered another job.

I think he's busy for the foreseeable, raiding EFL and MFC offices

Riverside offices, specifically.

I wonder if he is part of a team, as you would have thought ex cid wouldn’t go to any Riverside alone. 😀

Fresh update from the EFL.

Some interesting stuff in there, calling out fake news and reiterating that they don't want Derby liquidated.

Safe to say that the EFL is not impressed by the administrators at all. What the hell have they been doing for all this time? They haven't resolved any issues, they've managed to scare away one buyer by dragging their feet and haven't brought any funds into the club by offloading sellable assets. They are making a mockery of the EFL.

Does this quote:

"One such claim made in the past 24 hours is that the EFL has questions to answer regarding a supposed deal reached with Middlesbrough FC linked to Disciplinary action being taken against Derby County for alleged Profitability and Sustainability breaches. These accusations are wholly untrue, serving as an unwelcome diversion to current matters that need swift and decisive action by Derby’s Administrators."

mean that the claim made by the Derby fans that Gibson had an agreement with the EFL that he'd sue Derby and and not them, is another one of their lies?

Sorry if it's obvious but I do have a weird problem of getting confused when reading a long article on a screen.

I believe so.

It always sounded daft and conspiratorial in the first place, so I'm surprised they've been peddling it.

    • imo, anyone who criticises Marcus T either doesn't see us playing very often or doesn't have a particularly good understanding of the game. Not meaning to sound harsh, but his contribution to the team is very clear to see. He's not perfect by any means, but then not many players are, especially at this level. If you're just simply looking for players to criticise then there are usually about 8 or 9 players you should start with before Mr T each game  
    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view
