Sounds like they could potentially be in serious trouble if this takeover falls through - which is looking increasingly likely. Their fans are already taking about a potential fire sale of the players.

Although it's terrible news for Derby fans, I honestly don't mind as it garentees they will be struggling further, if them and sheff wen both get point deductions for it being able to pay wages leaves one relegation spot for Wycombe.

Derby are one of those clubs that have been around the upper end of the Championship spending money they don't have for years. I bet they thought one of the playoff visits would have ended in the PL but they fucked it. Won't stop anyone else though.

This and Wednesday are going to be the beginning of a wave of clubs in this situation. All the clubs in the pyramid that have been paying wages way outside their means to try and get promoted are going to be in the shit

I'm guessing that the PFA will step in and offer financial support to the players so they are able to fulfill fixtures in the short term. What happens longterm, even I can't predict that.

I think the shit is starting to hit the fan football wise there will be more clubs going the same way no way can these excessive wage bills be met each month.
and if I was a prospective wanna be buyer I would hang back until the club went tits up.

Interestingly Derby fans are indicating that the sale has all but been agreed, however now the prospective new owners are refusing to provide the agreed funds as per the legal agreements and negotiations.

Inevitably the new owner probably thinks that he can renegotiate a cheaper deal given the current position of the club - even if that means pushing Derby to the brink.

Why do people wish points deductions on other teams.
If we cant stay up without that we dont deserve to.

Because they’ve cheated, and by doing so they’ve gained an unfair advantage over teams who are trying to play by the rules, not only that by cheating they pushed up the wage structure in this league, to a level that’s nearly impossible to compete with if your trying to work within the rules, a points deduction is the only thing that’s going to make clubs think twice about continuing to jeopardise the beautiful game.

Could be the first of many clubs this year. No crowds and added Covid testing expenses crippling for all sports clubs, not just football.

Maybe the Sisu way of being frugal, and playing the long game, was the right way?
