    Derby in trouble!

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51142719

    A points deduction would be very nice, and a fine to go with the Rooney megabucks deal!

    Snowgate.... hah!

    "The Rams have leased back the ground, which was said to have been independently valued at £80m despite it being on the club's books as an asset worth £41m, from a company owned by Morris"

    Cheating *****.

    Was going to say it'd be nice to have their deduction while they were near the play offs.. but relegation will do

    With all that money they can afford a snow plough and a gritter!

    Indeed and the irritating falseness of the Rooney story wanting to play back in the UK for Derby ,whilst wearing of the No 32 shirt number, only being a 'crafty' tie-in with club sponsor , I'm shocked football ignores the impact betting has on folk and its core support .

    Steve Gibson Boro owner wasn’t happy that Derby seemed to be getting away with bending the financial rules and felt they should have had points deducted last season.

    I don't think that the fact that the ground was in their books at £41m and then sold for for £80m is an issue. Many businesses have assets in their financial accounts at "under value" and there is nothing wrong with that.

    The real issue is the valuation figure and on what basis this was undertaken. I think that "fair value" will be very difficult to disprove for beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. I may believe that something is worth £10 and someone else might say £15 and buy it for that.

    I think that Derby will get away with this particularly as they kept the EFL informed at all stages of the process.

    A 12 point deduction would leave them 23rd on 22 points

    A 21 point deduction would leave them bottom of the league on 13 points and pretty much confirm relegation, not that I'd want that to happen...

    Derby's failure to reach the Premier League despite spending a fortune then bending the rules, then putting the dodgy Rooney deal together, then sacking their long term injured captain while retaining the services of two players who were fit to play is one of the redeeming features of this season - I'd love to see them deducted points, but can't see it happening.
