Oh dear Derby

And to think that all season you were either gonna walk the league or get promoted via the play offs at the very least. Guess it will be more tears before bedtime. Look forward to taking more points off you next season😂😂😂

Have you done that already this season though Manc? Most expensive squad in league isn't it? Guess you'll be ok though as your owners are much more savvy than our idiot

TBH Cannigia i'd still say our season had been a failure if we'd gone up, we spent a lot of money and should have been top 2 (I know nothings concrete in football but surely that should have been the aim).
We'll see next season how good Mel is, he told us there'd be no embargo so if there is then he should be held accountable for that. Hopefully though we tighten our belts again and get rid of some of the deadwood and start again. Oh the joys of being a footy fan

Don't think FFP will effect Derby as the rules count losses over three seasons so they'll have structured payments on all the transfers to ensure they're manageable.

What can you say, DM? Mixed messages from Mel didn't help, particularly when saying promotion wasn't the aim when it is every championship club's aim (realistically or otherwise). Think he has a big summer ahead of him as he needs some forward momentum in the managerial position. Warlock wouldn't be a bad call IMO. One of only a few who could manage some of the egos such as Ince.

Getting rid of the deadwood may be harder than envisaged though. Just as ffp has been managed signings-wise, some of those transfer fees were OTT, particularly Bradley Johnson's. Getting them off the wage bill and persuading another club to pay a realistic fee may be very difficult. Better to try and get a real motivator of a manager in and see if he can push their buttons.

I'm surprised at the lack of interaction from the AFC Telford fans, Redforever. They get tagged in threads more than any other team in the country. Been waiting for a number of years for one of them to break their silence. 😜

May I add an oh dear for Tottenham too? Finishing 3rd in a two horse race.

There must be something about teams who play in white...

Think you've nailed it Will, not looking to rosy for England, playing in red won't exactly help much
