    LazloW got a reaction from BPV in EFL Verdict   
    The EFL could now just say ‘ok, we got what we wanted, a clear ruling that how DCFC did the accounting is wrong and the club have been punished. That’s an end to it’.  That way they keep a big club in the Championship and save face. Not really sure what’s in it for them by relegating Derby and Sheff Wed (two of the biggest teams in the EFL) and keeping Wycombe up. An odd business decision.

    LazloW reacted to David in Jozwiak   
    Stats wise, he came out as their 3rd best player. Thought he had a decent enough game myself. Certainly not a player that should be singled out for any kind of criticism

    LazloW reacted to Tamworthram in when can we expect the player retained list?   
    So, using that table, you’d sack him if we had a points deduction because we’d be relegated. Would you sack him though if we didn’t and managed to finish 17th? A points deduction doesn’t make him a worse manager.
    I’m not convinced about Rooney but, my point is, to sack or not based on a potential points deduction sounds a bit odd.

    Bloody Jozwiak has done more in ten minutes for Poland than his last 5 games for Derby, just goes to show what playing in a confident side does for ya.... He will be a star for us if we can get him a better more confident side to play in
    I really like him as a player and fingers crossed we keep him and he's a breakout star next year

    Stop being a wet blanket man. She was clearly shaken by the ordeal and was visibly upset. I was upset watching it. I rang my dad just to talk to him. Blokes my age and fit as a fiddle and it looks like his heart stopped. Why pick on people for being honest?

    LazloW reacted to i-Ram in Once a Ram... Not Always a Ram?   
    Might be in the very small minority, but l have very little interest in players when they move on, and certainly the notion that ‘once a Ram, always a Ram’ has little traction with me.
    In the last 10 years there are only a few players that I retain any interest in. Probably only Hughes and Bryson.

    Didn’t take long.
    But this is more than just Derby. I can point you towards more than a dozen topics that are sticking the boot into the club where you could have a whale of a time.
    Can even find a couple where AFC Derby and full on liquidation scenarios for doomsday.
    Regardless of where we finished, who’s in charge it’s wrong, we should be able to call that out without attacking our own club yet again.
    The prize money on offer in the Premier League is obscene, the numbers are more nauseating when you consider grounds have been empty for over a year in 3 leagues, 3 leagues which unlike the Premier League ticket revenue accounts for a large percentage of the clubs yearly revenue.
    But yeah, let’s ignore that to complain about Rooney again because that’s the biggest issue the Football League is facing right now.

    £125m for being the worst team in the league.
    Just let that sink in.
    One hundred and twenty five million pounds for being crap.
    That’s 3 clubs coming down with a total of £381m, but that’s not all, the Premier League will also give them parachute payments to soften the blow.
    Sorry to start another topic on this, but it’s a topic that needs to be repeated, football is broken. It’s broken and they are doing nothing about it. Why?
    We have to try and compete with those 3 next year, with barely any revenue we have to compete against clubs with over £100m in their back pockets.
    What hope do we have?
    Yes I know money doesn’t always = success, Brentford beat Bournemouth, made it to Wembley but how many years have they been trying to get there? 
    Whoever goes up it’s a major achievement, getting past the parachute payment clubs, it’s huge, one season up there and they have banked over £100m, it’s madness.
    We can never have a completely level playing field, I understand that, but the PL and EFL could come together and distribute that money out more fairly.
    Why are they not?
    Why are these questions not being asked?
    Do we need to see more clubs liquidated, more clubs going bankrupt trying to compete from the Championship to League 2, all the national media journalists will be all over that, justice for Bury, why not call it out now? 
    Heads are so far up the Premier League’s backside the Football League barely gets a mention.
    I’m ranting I know, but £125m for being crap. 
    Who signs off on that and thinks it’s good for football? 
    It’s broken, football is broken.

    Full transparency. I was invited to this meeting, but chose not to put my name or the forums to this.
    Reason being as I have previously stated, this forum is a platform for fans views, I am not an elected chairman/spokesman to speak on behalf of you all, simply the creator of this platform for fans views which can already be openly seen by the club.
    I did not feel comfortable signing on behalf of the forum without consulting you all, and felt my name without attaching dcfcfans.uk held no weight.
    My own personal views are that this letter has been created out of concern for the clubs future and regardless of how you feel towards any of the groups that have signed off on it, do not see this as an opportunity to attack supporters groups for speaking on behalf of Derby County fans.
    We all love this club. 🐏

    LazloW got a reaction from GangwayD in WHY   
    Everything is easy in hindsight. I’m sure every decision that has been made has been made with the best of intentions and the best interests of the club. It would be hard to conclude that many of those decisions have not turned out to be the best, but it’s easy to be wise after the event.
    A lot of things that have gone wrong are also ‘sporting’ issues, which I refuse to blame the owner for. Backing your manager isn’t a crime. Bringing in managers with decent CVs and footballing pedigree isn’t a crime. There are plenty of examples of teams who underperform out there and it is rarely the owner’s fault. That’s the nature of football I’m afraid. Sometimes other teams are better than you. It happens.
    I think a lot of negative things have happened all at once which has led to a lot of conflating of issues and 2+2 is equaling 5 in a lot of cases. But I’m not angry (I’m not even faux angry) - more than anything I’m just sad that it’s turned out this way and sad for Mel as well.
