New investment imminent

John Percy is an ordinarily reliable and well-connected journalist who generally gets stuff right. He says an investment deal is close with a consortium which will keep Morris as chairman and provide Cocu with funds to improve the squad in January.


Sounds too good to be true. No indication about who it actually is. As far as I know it isn’t me though.

I don’t think for one second that RR will get involved with Derby.
My point is that I hate these chancers like this hedge fund guy getting involved and would prefer to do it with local club connections.
The fact that we need the extra cash just to compete at all is what it killing football as I love it.
Spart is right it’s difficult to associate oneself with a club willing to sell out to this type of dodgy dealer.

Perhaps, but it's small change to a company like RR to run DCFC. They wouldn't miss it in the same was that Etihad really don't make any money out of Man City.
Get Rolls Royce represented on the Derby board and we are away.


Everyone knows the name RR but Etihad needs the publicity to become a household name and the owners and Etihad are connected.

Interesting that Livingston stadium is named after its sponsor, the Tony Macaroni stadium. Known to the locals as the spagghetihad.

Darley might have been worth scanning through this thread because Desi broke this earlier.

It's all good Darley, more posts on the subject welcome. No need to apologise to me buddy.

No no Desi, credit where it’s due. Darley’s right to accept that he couldn’t be @rsed to read the whole thread. It was a great spot. You don’t need some Jonny-come-lately stealing your thunder.

I don’t really understand how we will have more to spend.
If the investors put in £800 Billion Billion Trillion Gazillion we will not be able to spend any of it as it hasn’t been generated by the club. It’s the whole point of FFP. To stop sugar daddies.
We can of course do a Forest, Leicester, Bournemouth, QPR, Sheff Wed, Birmingham, AstonVilla etc and extend a middle finger to FFP.
But as it stands, without breaking the rules we will not have any extra cash to splash.

Think I'll keep this comment, not sure how well it will age!!

Jonny come lately to the thread Darley. I know you’ve been around a while.
Perhaps the tone of my comments has been missed by you and Desi.
I was trying to be funny, clearly very unsuccessfully.
