I don't have OCD on the keyboard like 2W and his formations Heb. I do however have copy and paste which is quicker and easier.

That is one heck of a statement to issue.

Assuming it's true, the EFL has just shot itself.

Mel will take them to the cleaners and, knowing him, successfully sue them for damages.

Bring it on!

I've been telling people there was no problem for weeks. The club are claiming they have the documentation to prove their statement so what can the EFL do except crawl in to hole and hide. I think it was the smoggy tw@ who forced their hand. Hopefully he will be covered in boils or some similar affliction in the not too distant future.

What the hell is going on? Either the EFL is wrong and stupid or DCFC are telling lies. Since what the club is saying is a better of record, surely the charges should be dismissed.

COYR. Say it all on the pitch this afternoon.

If we are wrong we will lose points and might get relegated. So if the EFL are wrong will they give us a few points? We might get promoted with another 12 points.

Based on precedents, somebody told me we might lose 9 points if we are guilty (difficult ro see how in light of club statement). But we simply need to build either a cushion or a playoff platform. 12 points from the next 4 games please. COYR

How about if we are acquitted of all charges, Middlesbrough lose 12 points for being in possession of an offensive chairman

Derby County being investigated over links between 32 Red and the club’s community scheme.

This is turning out to be a storming season!!!

Daily Mail take:

The actual programme in question.

Fine we just won't run the programme because it's funded my our main sponsor.
It''s not about gambling it's about mental heath and I would suggest Strett could benefit from it as his obsession with finding problems at Derby is extremely concerning.

Or he could just f@ck off.

Keep trying Strett. Now you know there isn't going to be a points deduction you need another straw to grasp at.

I just see him sat by his computer monstering Red Bull by the bucket full and pressing refresh every minute at derbycountynews in his browser desperate for some dirt.

Hasn't Strett noticed that Rooney is off to United?

What prompts you to make that outrageous claim, chap?
It's been revealed today that the 'unique' accounting method Derby use, has dodged another £30m debt!

The clock is ticking and the net is closing.

Oh to be a journalist VC.
Nothing to write about. I know I’ll knock a few lines out about how Rashford’s injury means United need a striker. Hang on that Wayne Rooney is a striker isn’t he. Sorted story written, other lazy hacks copy it. Then the Derby Telegraph even tip it.
I mean for f@ck sake.
A simple look at how Rooney plays nowadays immediately discounts him as striker. You couldn’t make this up er....

Matt Lawton has another one in The Times today; but it's probably:

*Poor newspaper
*Poor journalist
*They have it in for us

*Delete as appropriate


"Derby County may have incurred losses of as much as almost double the permitted £39 million for a three-year period after introducing an “unusual” accountancy policy for players.

Last week Derby were charged by the Football League with a breach of its rules that involves the valuation of their Pride Park Stadium. Derby responded on Friday night by declaring the EFL charges “unlawful”, with the matter likely to end in court. But The Times understands the club may have suffered a further £30 million in losses in the three seasons up to June 2018 because of an accounting policy said to be unique to the English game.

Most clubs have a policy which recognises a player is worth nothing at the end of their contract, so his value decreases in proportion to the length of time left on his deal.

It means if a £10 million player signs a four-year contract, the club calculates a loss of £2.5 million a year. But Derby introduced a policy at the start of the three-year period in question that involved applying “residual values” with an amortisation rate, sources say, nearer 10 per cent.

If the EFL calculates Derby’s losses using the standard amortisation rate, it could potentially mean an even greater breach of its profit and sustainability rules.

Kieran Maguire, a lecturer in football finance at Liverpool University, who alerted the EFL to the introduction by Derby of “residual values” in June 2018, described it as an “unusual accountancy practice”, even if it is not illegal.

The Sky Bet Championship club avoided sanctions over its stadium sale by using a company owned by the chairman and owner, Mel Morris, to buy Pride Park for £81.1 million. As The Times revealed last week, however, an independent valuation commissioned by the EFL is said to have come in at about £49 million.

If found guilty, Derby could be hit with a points deduction. Birmingham City, their Championship rivals, were deducted nine points last season after being found to have breached the EFL’s profitability and sustainability rules. The EFL said that the club had incurred losses of nearly £48.8m between 2015 and 2018 — almost £10 million more than the accepted level.

Derby last night declined to comment but they made it clear last Friday that they would ”strongly contest” the charges."

I would imagine you would drink Red Bull Strett. A company run by a family who hide their policeman killing son. After all you love your owner the drug smuggling, match fixing, gangster. Surely the EFL would be better off trying to rid football of criminals like this than going after a club which has actually done nothing wrong, and with the permission of the EFL.
