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.
Some highly paid players at Derby and that’s not counting Rooney god knows what he is on.
Bit like us then in the operation premiership eraDerby 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.
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.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.
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.
Maybe the Sisu way of being frugal, and playing the long game, was the right way?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
