But is it a thing? That just seems to have come from nowhere unless I've missed something.
Timing seems contrived if it is a thing.
Its ridiculous and just arbitrary

I can think of two months when they were late paying wages
It wouldn’t be anything to do with that but the breaking of FFP that they tried to get around with Morris ‘buying’ the stadium for an inflated price to bump the finances. Which is precisely what Wednesday were done for

Surely they would have to have it next season now. As results are done and dusted.

But does show what a joke it is. If your a rotherham fan you would be massively angry if they stay up on -12 and you go down.

Few bits of info




But reports say EFL have won the appeal. So punishment will be interesting.


Would we rather have Wycombe in the league with us or Derby with a massive points deduction ?

But we all know like always with the EFL, Derby will get a slap on the wrists and a fine.

Derby put a block on it being reported and are still under investigation, love Wycombe to get a reprieve!

Derby havent even filed their 2019 accounts yet. They were due June 2020

2017 showed £8m in losses
2018 showed £14m in profit ( but only after a £40m profit on the stadium disposal )

Both 2017 & 2018 show amortisation(depreciation) of player registrations

The auditors would be hard pressed to sign off any football club accounts that didn't show amortisation of player contracts (assuming players have been shown as an asset - some clubs write off 100% in year of acquisition). Whether they have been valued properly could also create problems

I didnt think the valuation was arbitrary, and they had to write off the purchase value over the length of the contract or shorter (Depending on their policy)

"Saved" £30m of losses through their amortisation method, a method not used by any other team in English football.

At best they've intentionally exploited a loophole but if that's the case I'm stunned no other club has tried it before.

Be interesting to see what EFL do.
I mean SW went to a court and had the penalty halved.
Makes a bit of a mockery of EFL sanctions if another body (court for sport) can overturn or amend its decisions.

Had a quick look on the derby forum to see what they were saying about this and saw this.


Oh Erik. Is this you?
