Mel Morris sold Derby County’s ground to himself for leaseback, a cool £80m, trying to engineer a way round the financial doping. There are a plethora of decent time served managers, why pick up a Lampard or Rooney just for a name when their scouting network/recruitment....is simply their agent and agency doing the recruitment....

RS - yes cashflow is a real issue in the industry since most residential customers pay on a budget plan, which may fail to reflect actual usage until 9 or 10 months down the line. Energy company is taking the risk.

Red Kite - yes they do forward purchase on energy (hedging their costs), and it is the 250% increase in Gas costs that are now hurting, which arose earlier this year, plus a cable fire, and two power stations off line for maintenance. Those in the industry have been warning about this coming increase for 8 months if not longer. Add in a quarter day in September, plus Green Tax payments due, and you have a recipe for failure in the smaller end of the energy market.

Badly run companies will always fail.
Morris sounds like a fool tbh. Chasing the premiership dream thinking that will be an end to Derby's financial worries. He claims to have lost £200m and tripled the Club's wage bill between 2015 and last year, not to mention hiring managers like Lampard & Rooney. We tend to equate wealth with intelligence but clearly this guy was naive

I doubt if what Derby did is illegal, I think it is something accountants might frown at till their bill was paid but it was definitely against EFL rules. The 'fit and proper person' test is pretty much neutered by legal issues, if it was much tighter the EFL would get sued, lose and have to pay damages.

Lurker is a world football expert, to be fair. Think he once had a trial with Raynes Park Vale.

Enjoy your over analysing, match of the day guest spot for you
Lol luker,I rarely read your words of wisdom.just find over passing across the back very tedious, and like forward passing all played in the opposition half.

Weird feeling on here - we're all basically on Wycombe's side but nice also that the mood is what's right not rivalry. I think anyone in their position would be pissed off with how much slack Derby have been allowed here.

Lurks, agreed, I think some of our fans are living in the 1980s when you could get away with having no passing game.

spit sorry but you're starting to sound like my mother in law, who knows fuck all about football and demonstrates it every time she says something watching a match - she constantly moans about just kick it forwards. Just kicking it forwards for the sake of kicking it forwards is how you lose the ball and bring the opposition back at you constantly and eventually enough pressure and enough chances = opposition score. Look at our worst passages on Saturday, it was where players flapped and just hit it forwards. That video isn't as great as people think because there's a lot of weaknesses that made it go back and sideways but retaining possession for 28 passes and getting a shooting chance is better than giving it away after 2 passes cos it's bad to pass it back or sideways.

For years in L1 our problem has been that teams worked us round the pitch until they could exploit our lack of pace (in some cases fitness) to open gaps.
If we are taking 8,000 to Arsenal on a Wednesday night that is some effort.

RK, forward contracts have to be paid for and most of these companies are operating essentially from day to day. They simply don't have the cash reserves to enter into forward contracts for as much as 2 years supply.

Wycombe are right to be pissed off with Morris at Derby. Shameful behaviour as it is as clear as day that Morris knew what he was doing. Chasing the dream when all previous dreams had proved unattainable and not learning from that expereince. A classic example of one man ruining a football club by overstretching himself, believing the impossible and not realising the error, instead chasing his losses. Hoe someone like that ever passed the Fit and Proper test is beyond me.

No chance of Wycombe being resinstated now the season has started and probably even less chance of getting the money they claim to have lost out on (Couhig clearly fails to mention the £10m parachute payment in his calculations), but the EFL needs to be shown up for the joke that it is when it comes to managing its League and members.
Re the energy companies, is there any reason why they didn't forward purchase supplies at a price to match their customer contracts?

As you were
Whilst your here Mr L, that person we spoke about in the energy market last week. What are the consequences for directors/CEO where the energy regulator is concerned if it comes to light that they were insolvent for quite some time? Toothless regulator??

Wycombe are looking at are legal recourse for money and League place - understood and correct. How about police and Companies House activity to take Morris to court for Fraud?

Ledy, latest version says they "could" launch legal action, which usually means they won't because of the costs but they want to fire a warning off to the EFL
