    EFL protest? Not sure which you mean and it hasn't been great for anyone Curtains.
    The last year we haven't been able to attend Pride Park, been all living under restrictions which have limited our we have been able to live our lives, some have been ill, died, loved ones unable to attend funerals, see parents in care homes, jeez even weddings cancelled or postponed, mine included which was meant to be on Saturday (I may have mentioned that once or twice), meanwhile the football our escape from daily grind that is life, the club we all love is having the worst season it has for a number of years to top it all off and all we can do is sit here smashing our keyboards into oblivion.
    We have a man, a fan of the club that has been unwell trying to sell the club he loves during this global pandemic where many businesses have been hit hard financially, even gone under, including members on this forum.
    Love him or hate him, what a ducking poo time it's been for him as well as us, we're all fans and honestly, I'll be glad when I see the back of this season and some kind of normality resumes.

    Didn’t see him myself, but if true that’s great news.
    Agree with the pandering as well, I’m just confused by it all to be honest.
    Not happy with how Mel has run the club, destroy a bed sheet to paint “Mel out”, erm, have I missed something or is he not actively trying to sell the club?
    Oh but don’t sell to him, or him, great, so basically get out my club now but not so quick, here’s a list of billionaires we want you to sell to.
    Finances? Empty your wallet, we want to see your bank statements and where are our accounts which are not currently under any kind of EFL investigation  appeal?
    Or do we go for the “Boooo you’re rubbish players”, that would come as a surprise to them wouldn’t it? All I’ve heard post match from them is how great we are and what a great position in the table we are, I can’t believe how unaware they are that they haven’t been good enough.
    You can sense my sarcasm can’t you? My apologies, let’s get the bed sheets out seriously demanding to know what Stan Collymore’s tweets mean now the 24 hour deadline has passed.
    And Natalie Jackson dropping bombshells that staff of business are worried about their futures with revenues potentially cut. 
    I’m sorry, really sorry, but I just don’t get it. Before or after game protests, make no sense to me at all.

    David got a reaction from Old Sawley Popside in SHEFF WEDS (h) Meet and greet the players who’ve let us down so badly this season.   
    Just to add another voice that is completely against a protest.
    At this stage of the season, with what is on the line, we don’t need to add further negativity, but do what we can from a far to not attack, but support the club and encourage the players the best we can.
    How? Well that’s extremely difficult given Police and club advice is to stay away if you are there to berate or encourage the team.
    We could not whip ourselves into a frenzy over every rumour and deleted tweet, squash any talk of protests, not mention the club, players or potential new owner with angry tweets.

    Lot's of millions, you know this, the reason why the stadium was sold and it's just not us, it's all over.
    Owning a club outside the Premier League now is a money pit, the game is financially broke and needs a reset before clubs and history are lost.
    This needs to start with reviewing parachute payments and the unfair advantage it gives those relegated clubs, we saw the back lash from the ESL proposals on the closed shop but that's what the Premier League would become if owners were not willing to shed millions on trying to get promoted.
    Yes I'm aware it is possible to do it being savvy, the Blackpool example though is becoming a distant memory.
    We need to see a much fairer competition, where we don't have to bleed owners dry to realise our dreams.
    Until then, yes, the financial situation is worrying, in fact it's terrifying with the pandemic the list of potential football club owners will be getting shorter by the day.

    Derby County Football Club wishes to confirm that a definitive agreement to purchase the club has been reached with No Limits Sports Limited. The transaction, which is still subject to the EFL’s Owners and Directors Test approval, is expected to close in the near future.
    As agreed with No Limits Sports there will be no further comment until the transaction is complete. This is to ensure that all of the club’s focus will be on the Championship run in.

    Your last point is a very important one, which I think some have either forgotten or simply don’t care about.
    Not one of us know his current condition whilst demanding he show his face and talk to the fans. 
    Would also just like to add that I think it’s a dangerous game for the club to publicly come out to address rumours.
    It’s something I have never agreed with be it transfers, managers, drones and to gather a protest off the back of it, I can’t get my head around, especially when the tweet was deleted.
    I totally understand the members of that group maybe angry, frustrated, upset with the current situation the club finds itself it, I don’t think any fan, player, staff member or club official would be happy either, but I fail to see what this achieves.
    I will also say that I don’t believe they were trying to speak on behalf of other supporters, was most likely just poorly written. 
    For any kind of statement like this, I feel like it needs a list of names that sign off on it to add any weight, as you say, are Club 84 speaking on behalf of 20,000 or 20 fans, this is really important, especially if you are looking for the club to take notice.
