They’ll get off. If they don’t they won’t get as many points deducted and it’ll probably come off last season’s total? They are fine. Us, otherwise? 🙄

They didnt try and fiddle the books tho did they they just sold the stadium I cant see them getting a deduction.

Arn't some players paid via 3rd parties..which is against the rules.

Can't see the efuckinell, charging them on a wing and a prayer.

Think they are in bigger bobar than us tbh

I think the issue with Derby is that they over valued their stadium value. The sale of the stadium is not illegal but it was valued as a £41million asset. Derby then sold the stadium for £80 mill to a sister company of their owner. Then he leased it back to Derby at the £40 mill valuation. 
 

If Derby get away with this then we should of sold Hillsborough to Chansiri’s cat for £150 million.

After consideration didn't Derby sell the ground inflate prices of players to borrow money and Sumat else can't remember off hand. There points deduction will be greater than ours so at least we won't finish bottom :Chansiri:

I wonder if with COVID and no crowds coming in for the start of the season, will there be other clubs struggle and go into administration ?  Could be that us, Derby arent the only ones starting on -12 points. 

 

If you was a club in the league with accounts close to broke then this season would be a good season to go into administration and would make it a 2 tier league.

Based on them gunning for Derby in the first place I’d say they’ll be pretty confident. 

 

They think they have something to go on - which they also thought with us - and won.

Very good point.

 

If ever there was a season to take 12 points it’s next season.

Derby is not just the ground issue, EFL are also questioning their accounting policy for the amortisation of player transfer fees which is different to every other EFL clubs policy.  

 

Basically the try and say players still have a value at end of their contract so don't include as much expense in the accounts

Indeed. I just feel that initially some people thought the EFL were just haphazardly trying to attack clubs, but maybe they are quite confident prior to taking them to court (only basing this on their success over us and Wigan - to a lesser extent).

Do we think that the EFL will be struggling to support the teams in Lge 1 and 2 and might actually need teams like Derby and Us with large fan bases and Owner's with deep pockets

I do - but it didn’t stop them punishing us. 

 

No club is safe really - clubs have gone down the pan prior to Covid stuff... so maybe the EFL think rules are rules.

Yep so a player costing 10m on a 4 year contract you allocate 2.5m cost per season for FFP

 

What Derby were doing is saying a player will have a re-sale value of 4m at end of Y3 - so 0.5m less amortisation per year over 3 years 

 

But if the player does not re-sign then there would be a 4m hit in Y4.

 

So basically you show less expense for FFP

Heard numerous rumours that many other clubs in the second tier may get points deductions before or during next season. With the lower Leagues in doubt too, football is in a right mess. Even some of the mega rich clubs in the top flight are feeling the pinch too. What will the clubs and fans who gunned for our blood say or do, when other clubs including some of their own might get hit with points deductions for various reasons too?

Arsenal have done some redundancies today. Could argue, are they actually struggling but does show clubs are looking at what might be coming.

Yeah, shows how difficult it is for smaller clubs or clubs further down the pyramid who will find it even harder to get by without fans. Even the clubs coming down, with their failure payments and player sales, may find it difficult too. Just find it ludicrous the EFL stance on the FFP/P&S limit when almost every club will find it difficult to stay within the limit. Like others have said on here the parachute payments and the allowable FFP/P&S limit for the non parachute payment clubs should be increased and made the same amount.
