I don't think Derby have any issue do they, Neither Leeds it just us, Birmingham and Villa.

 

Derby lost 2016 £14m, 2017 £8m and what ever they lost last year but they sold Hughes, Ince and Christie which will have brought them in £20m + probably bought in £10m but like us this will be split over the contract of players.

 

The only difference from Leeds, Derby and Us is they have sold players we have accumulated players and sold no one.

 

Well Mel Morris and Gary Rowett cited it as an issue post play off defeat. Suggested they wouldn’t be able to spend like previously. Cue 15m on those two and another 4m on Jozefzoon. Nearly 20m, plus the loans of Wilson and mount.

 

Vydra won’t be covering that.

Derby Play Leeds at home as their first game of the season a big local grudge match for them with the history of the two clubs, most expensive ticket is £36 and potential have a promotion chasing team that they could be spending another £15m+ on players. 

 

We start our season at Home to Hull and the most expensive ticket is £46 and so far we have a weaker squad that last season with no signing all, be it they could be match fit. Which for any other team in the league would be an expected requirement of a professional footballer and team but last season we did not have this.

 

There home adult male shirts are £48 each compare to our £59, here a good one as well their fans get a £3 discount if they by the tickets in advance of on the day purchases, why can we not do this and kids under 12 get a free season ticket as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult. I am not saying this to bash the owls but this is a team that season on season have invested in their team, don't charge the level of ticket prices or merchandise we do but they are still planing for the future generation of fans, we charge the kids outside of the grandstand £99 a season which in the scheme of things is £4.30 a game.

But they are playing the game so team down over price them for players. But we bought Rhodes on a 4 year deal for £8m then only release £2m of his fee each year. Derby do the same and the £20m will only be £5m in their accounts but if they get £8m for Vydra they will be £3m up.

 

Across at Hillsborough DC is telling anyone who will listen that he cannot invest any money because of FFP, so the knock on effect will be any offers for players will be vastly reduced.

It still raises some questions for derby fans given that the talk was of being unable to move on older players and being unable to spend. I get the transfer fees are amortised but wages aren’t, they’ve signed or are about to sign 4/5 players. Nixon suggests they are risking it and trying to sell others after. I suspect a nugent loan to the blades.

Leeds signing Barry Douglas from Wolves.

 

Best left back in the Championship last year.

 

With Wolves signing some real quality this summer they will no doubt be letting some of last seasons promotion team leave, wish we would go in for a few of them.

And there's something else Farage ain't wrong about.

 

Mass migration from Europe pushes down wages.

 

Two people for one job = power in the hands of the employer.

 

Two jobs for one person = power in the hands of the worker.

 

That's why the common people rose out of serfdom after the Black Death, because the workforce was so diminished.

 

It's like the early 80s with 3.5 million people out of work and too few jobs to go round, and asking that drowning man where he works.

 

OK, you can understand the Tories favouring it because it helps business by boosting their profits, but how can Labour sanction it?

 

Up the workers my bottom.

 

It's about supply and demand.

 

Diamonds are valuable because's they're rare.

 

If they were lying around all over the place then they'd be next to worthless.

 

We need skilled migrants, but I find it incredible that people in working class areas would vote for any party willing to permit the mass ingress of unskilled labour.

 

It's like a turkey voting for Christmas.

 

Bizarre.

Exactly what we need

 

Wolves doing great business, with ins and outs.

Douglas starred last year, but they know full well at 28, he isn't likely to get any better and rather than giving him a year in the Prem out of being loyal to him, they've shipped him out for a good fee.

 

Also will be a great signing for Leeds.

 

No worries though, we have Fox.

The difference between 91 league clubs and Us is that our chairman believes that the players are part of his family. Smart cookie.

Probably have a plan to offload butterfield back to us.
