Derby takeover expected to collapse


Recommended Posts

EFL are completely useless. I can't work out why he was deemed the preferred bidder.

Nixon seems to think he may still get the deal done but my opinion is Ashley will swoop in now. Seems to do the business quite quickly despite the negativity surrounding him.

This was predictable and exactly what Ashley was waiting on the sidelines for. Expect him to be the next owner of Derby at much less than was being paid in this deal.

 

As a side note the administrators should be dissolved they’ve been diabolical.

It’s not the EFL that deems the preferred bidder, it’s the Administrator.

The EFL just determine whether or not they are fit and proper!

Thanks for the clarification 🙂

That actually makes it worse. Financially savvy companies dealing with insolvency on a regular basis should be in a position to assess properly. Still think it was bizarre he was chosen even if he completes the deal. Writing is on the wall when they are parading the club in Derby County hoodies before they have got their wallets out.

They’ll just go with the highest offer

Administrators are only interested in using the funds of the highest bidder to 

1. Get the best deal for the many creditors 

2. Pay their own enormous fees.

I agree - hate to see this - giving people false hope etc

 

The serious guys talk with their money

I want them to stay in business and afloat, but in a way that maximises our advantage ahead of them next season.
 

So a dragging out of the process that slows up any transfer activity, and maybe gives them a modest points deduction that stops them challenging for the top 6….sort it Carlsberg.

The deal is in danger of collapse AND, apparently, Kirchner has failed to provide the money to  pay

the players May wages.

 

Absolutely scandalous!!

 

Whoever heard of players not being paid the wages due to them.WTF:

It does affect us though. A potential rival being hamstrung is good news for us competitively. Players we might both be interested in are going to choose us. Like Gregory did last summer.

Yeah, Derby you would have thought would be a potential rival at the top of the table, I have no love for Derby but would not want them to disappear, however a protracted sale that screws up their recruitment and their competitiveness next season would not be a bad thing for us..
