    I'm sure they have some good fans, I just haven't met them, every one of them I chatted with when I came over for the Wembley final was a dick, on top of that we had one at our hotel try to start a fight with us, goodbye!

    I tend to disagree that there's always a buyer. There's tighter FFP in League One including a 2.5 million salary cap. Doesn't matter how rich/stupid new owner is, they cant really buy or spend their way to promotion - they'd have to do it purely on a shoestring and sporting merit, concepts totally alien to folks of Derby it seems. To do that from a starting point of at least minus 50million is utterly unfeasible.
    Ultimately it depends what the administrator unearths. My gut feeling is they will discover a total mess of debt and s-housery that will make DCFC totally unviable for sale in any reasonably competitive form.
    Other than the starting point of 50m could be 5m if the creditors accept 10p in the 1 if the admin process progresses to insolvency.

    When Leeds entered an IVA, from memory it started at 14p in the 1 but HMRC objected because Bates was involved in the old and the new company in some capacity. Their thinking it was a debt clearing exercise only. I think it settled at circa 20p per 1 of debt.

    It Morris is not involved in the preferred new company then it will be down to the administrator which bid to accept. The highest bid might be 30p in the 1 but a different company offering 25p in the 1 may be accepted if it was more likely to result in a sale.

    How much debt do you think a football owner would take on if the stadium and training facilities would be subject to monthly rental fees to Morris's seperate companies? There dont seem to be any players of value there, so I doubt the football side alone is worth a huge amount with player contracts to pay?

    They'll be in L1 next season even if they have to see the season out by playing the U18s.

    Apparently any new owner has to clear 50m of debt from Derby's books alone.

    1. 10m apparently owned to Football Creditors.
    2. 20m secured debt from an American Hedge Fund.
    3. 30m tax bill.

    On top of that Derby have requested their payments to players are delayed, that would mean points deductions and non-payment to football creditors also means a points deduction.

    Im no financial advisor, but this aint looking good, there is a very real chance of liquidation if they cant find a buyer.

    Nah, they're done for. They've put themselves into administration so it's 12pts deduction, nothing to discuss. They are still negotiating a punishment for previous financial nonsense so whatever that outcome is will get added to the 12pts.
    9 points?

    Didn't he use the Stadium as the collateral on a 20m loan from an Americas hedge fund?

    If they had beaten us at Wembley perhaps we wouldn't have got into the mess we did.

    Be interesting to watch how Rams extricate themselves from that phoney ground sale nonsense they indulged in. Obviously any potential buyer will want the club AND stadium in the deal but I suspect Mel Morris pee'd on his chips with his smoke and mirrors stadium accounting and now he's deep in do-do holding a grossly overvalued stadium to get rid of.

    Looks like reading are about to get 9 points deducted aswell. They have a wage bill of 40m per year which is absolutely astonishing. It's not like they are running away with the league. Trying to buy success. We all know how that tends to go!!
