they have 9 senior registered players who are still under contract! surely they cant ask them to sign a new contract?

 

They can ask, but the contracted player doesn't have to sign.  He already has a contract with terms and the like.

I would, might be a Bentley init.



I guess you're right


It's like when on Bullseye Jim Bowen always hid the prize behind a curtain so you didn't know if you were playing for some garden furniture or a speedboat

If this happened at our club many of our fans would call players traitors if they didn't sign it


Wonder how the Derby fans are reacting to all this news and if they're as anti their own players as some of our fans seem to be?

There's no way anyone would sign a contract with the figures missing, on anything, and if those figures were added later, then it wouldn't make the figures legal, unless re-signed by all parties. 

 

I'm not calling bullshit on the journalist as such, but probably more of a ******** up due to sheer incompetence.

It's a mess. Derby owner wants out and his fault ultimately but for sure EFL doing their bit to contribute by their incompetence. 

 

Reading Nixon's updates over the summer, they seem to be endlessly waiting for EFL to tell them how many and how much they can offer players and now come to a head given they don't have enough players to put out a team.

 

I said in a thread on the last game vs Derby last season that the club who was relegated would probably be better of long term. We've had that reset, while Derby look totally fizzed.

The general feeling on their forum is get behind the players and give the board pelters

Nixon saying ALL players not just specific ones

No. He's saying all players currently not contracted. This includes some whose contacts expired, free signings they want and some trialists. They are negotiating with EFL to be allowed to sign more than 4 of them and be able to pay them more than £4.5k.

So they've got 9 players under contract in their main squad, everyone else has a blank contract to sign to be able to put a team out at the weekend, all orchestrated by Mel Morris and the EFL 

 

lol
