Hopefully their stadium will get repossessed too at some point. Rooney has conducted himself in a dignified manner though, I'll concede that.
    Apparently Wazza is "very close" to Barbara the tea lady though!

    The fact they tried to use Covid as an excuse was a disgrace , they were cooking the books 3 years before all that kicked off.

    Looks like derby have accepted the 21 point deduction they have withdrawn their appeal for the 12 point deduction they were given a short while back so it looks like Wayne Rooney's league 1 derby county that's if he don't jump ship ......

    Normally, I would feel sorry for the clubs fans, but not in Derby’s case.

    Can see the EFL caving in on this, which is Bollo(ks they've been at it for last 3 years not the last 18 months, there should be no ground given on this the penalty should stand, if i were the Wycombe & Sheff Wed chairman i'd be going to the EFL for compensation, as its only that Derby have been Dodgy that they were relegated, especially Wycombe, Sheff Wed have already had a points deduction

    I don't see how that can be the case. I think I read that they are borrowing more money now, even in administration. Besides, the only reason that they couldn't pay it back is because of their dodgy accounting practices.

    I don't see why the EFL would relax a points deduction on a club that has overspent - they didn't worry about fining us 40M for doing the same. Nothing would surprise me though.

    Most EFL clubs, including us. were able to take a loan from the EFL and work out a timetable for repayment. Derby were unable to access a loan as they had no means of paying it back. This could be the basis of their appeal.

    Having said that, the EFL have been shown to be farkin useless so you may be right.
    Regretfully, I think you could be right too.

    But, I just can't see how they can let Derby off because of Covid. Surely every club has been hit, and can blame their precarious position on the Virus. That being so, why can't any club that subsequently goes into Administration say "OK, so we may have gone into Administration, but if it hadn't been for Covid we would have been in a stronger position, and not have had to go into Administration."

    It therefore gives any clubs ready made and applied excuse to void the points deduction.
