Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today ūü§£ūü§£ūü§£

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Making a decision now that NW is remaining for say another two or three seasons and that GF will succeed him as the next Manager is at least is a plan offering stability and organisation. One that allows us to stop going from one extreme to the other, evolution rather than the constant revolution. Friend's preferred style may not be Warnock's and that's not particularly a bad thing as it allows a planned transition while attending to the immediacy of now.

That would be a sensible plan, were it not for the chilling prospect of Jepson and/or Blackwell taking over when NW calls it a day.

I was thinking Friend would be a good candidate if and when Gibson decides he wants someone more forward-thinking in charge. I'd guess George would be a frustrated understudy as long as the club continues on its current path. He might be better off doing his apprenticeship elsewhere, before returning to the Riverside as the prodigal son.

Can't believe it's was 5 years ago today we were promoted. Time flies! That was a good day. Best atmosphere I've ever experienced at a game.

Yes I agree with that. The atmosphere was unbelievable that day. I think I recall Ian Holloway describing the atmosphere as so intense it was almost unfair on Brighton

Justice may yet be served!

No doubt Derby will appeal, but hopefully the EFL have built a good case against them.

Can't believe they have yet another potential buyer. Although it doesn't bode well that apparently he wants to cover the club's losses by refinancing the stadium.

Someone who wants to avoid spending their own money if they can help it doesn't send out the best signals. Shrewd business practice, but not the kind of person you want to bail out a club that is struggling to pay its players.

There's very little chance of Derby getting a massive points deduction, and the article doesn't make any sense at all either.  It's been written by someone who doesn't know what he's talking about.

¬†'but the current EFL dispute as mentioned above hones in on the Spaniard¬†reportedly looking to refinance Pride Park to ‚Äėcover losses‚Äô,'

The current EFL dispute isn't a current dispute at all, and it has absolutely nothing to do with Erik Alonso, his prospective takeover of the club, how he intends to finance it, or covering losses, whatever that last bit even means.

The EFL appealed one part of all of the previous issues, and that was to do with how the player registrations were amortised in their accounts.  In essence, it's about how they dealt with the transfer fees in their accounts.  It appears that they changed their method, almost certainly to try and gain some advantage of course, but either didn't make it clear or were basically inaccurate in how it was done.  This is the only part that the EFL have appealed, the stuff regarding the stadium sale has not been appealed.  This is important because it was the stadium sale that had the biggest impact on the accounts, and Derby's ability to clear FFP.  The larger the amount you fail FFP by, the greater the punishment will be.  These accountancy changes would amount to fairly small differences in terms FFP, so the punishment is unlikely to be a large points deduction.  Maybe they'll try and take a couple of points off them or some kind of fine.  But that's only if the appeals panel actually does find in the EFL's favour anyway.

I wasn’t a fan of the content particularly but he shouldn’t be using official channels to air his own political views imo. He should stick to his mandate.

Didn't really want to bring it up because I didn't want to start a political discussion on here.

But it's embarassing, unprofessional and completely expected. He's done it before at other clubs, doesn't give a damn that he might be alienating half of the fan base. One of the major reasons I didn't want him here in the first place and id actually been pleasently surprised that he'd not gone there. Till now

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong,¬†but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look¬†stifled and¬†devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward,¬†the striker¬† with the best heading ability¬†is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had¬†a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.¬†¬†
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s¬†by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham¬†and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch,¬†I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term¬†and¬†long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person.¬†People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp¬†agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that¬†he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him ‚Äúunprofessionally‚Ä̬†upon¬†leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh¬†that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
