    Appalling enough thinking of Derby City...It should always be Derby county. AFC Derby County etc. No idea how I would feel about a phoenix club. Might back it, might just lose interest in football for a while. But yeh, groundshare with Mickleover? Nah. Awful

    I think City just dilutes the identity. Its Derby County not Derby City. May not be a big deal for some people but it wouldnt feel the same. Aside from that City is just a crap name for a team. That Hull chairman was right!

    I just hope it’s a consortium that buys us not just one person. Have a proper board made up who can challenge each other’s decisions. The one problem Mel had is he didn’t have a board to challenge him on his decisions. To say no we shouldn’t be doing this we should do that. Instead he had a yes man ceo finance supposedly guru who messed around with our amortisation and has got us crippled when instead of running along with it should have challenged Morris. If had been the case and Morris hadn’t of got a free reign I don’t think we would be in this mess. Instead Morris just did whatever he wanted and now we are in the doom

    A phoenix club in the same colours same badge and retain our honours I'd be fine with. I wouldn't even see it as a new club. Just the same one
    Much like AFC Wimbledon

    A consortium of several wealthy Derby fans and local businessmen may seriously help if they are out there and willing, backed by a large fan led group. Easier said than done perhaps

    In all honesty, just reading this is appalling.
     
     
    How did we come to this?

    I assumed Mel / Pearce knew what they were doing when they signed off on big purchases and agreed to big wages. But if he was losing £1 million a month In 2017, then why? And why was it not fixed.  I didn’t believe this but I guess it was correct ...and the finances have been well hidden for a while. There have been no checks and balances and Pearce has been a yes man. Why was the club consistently living well beyond its means... he’s gambled with the future of the club. Very optimistic if he or anyone assumes it will be ok, maybe a few years down the line but he’s fed Derby to the sharks right now. 
    Derby County could fold and it will be largely down to Morris and his ineptitude running a club. I never thought or believed it was so bad financially until recently but it looks like it’s all true.

    I think putting Derby in administration is just risking the clubs future. Unless his health is so bad or he has lost his fortune, I cant see the rationale. The club could seriously go out of business and the finances appear to be shocking. I agree with a lot of what he says about football is broken, covid, EFL vendetta etc, he makes good points but it doesn’t explain why we have been getting into crazy amounts of debt over a long period of time. 
    We came close to going up and it’s fine margins but when the figures quoted seem to be multi millions in terms of debt, it’s worse than anyone could have imagined.

    We need a figurehead possibly an ex player like Linacre did when fester went into admin. Derby and it’s supporters will have made about 50 ex players millionaires over the last 20 years surely one of those might be sufficiently interested to lead on raising cash to get us through the next few months. Even Wayne could offer to lead it or perhaps Bryson who has a strong connection. Just someone to care enough to galvanise supported in raising cash

    This has been a slow burner for me....but I am now really angry at his actions. The vast majority of his wealth is still in tact but he lets the Rams go to the wall through his own incompetence. Despicable......

    Like the football finance guy said...Morris could continue funding the club if he chose to.. he had the finances to carry on for as long as required  
    He chose to throw the club and staff under a bus..

    I just want the club to survive and still be playing football, not even worried about this season. Can’t see anything but relegation as the points deductions may be a lot more than 12. The worrying thing is the debt

    Mel took on a club that was in a good position at the start of his tenure. He had a duty to our historic club and its large fan base to either maintain the status quo or take it forwards. I spent 31 years in primary education and I can only liken it to a school which was a good school with good results when the new head took over and then ended up in special measures so extreme that the school may have to close down. I know that schools are not football clubs but such mismanagement in education would have set alarm bells ringing very quickly.

    Pay off the debts Mel. You’re leaving the club in a mess after several years of mis management. You’ve put a lot of money in and we almost achieved the promised land but at least clear the debts so we still have a club to watch.

    Mel hasn’t tried to ruin the club, but he is guilty of financial mis management.... but this scenario where he has put us into administration and washing his hands of us is exactly what you say, as a conman would do. He should be paying the debts. There should be a banner made stuck on pride park stadium that reads in big, pay the debts Mel. He racked them up through his decisions at the club. He may have well put a lot of money in previously but it was Mel Morris‘ decision to become the owner and sign off on big money deals.

    The more I read the angrier I get. It's one thing gambling with your own money, but this was gambling with the very existence of the club - in other words gambling with something which has been very important to generations of people with a fraction of the money that Mel has. It's not even like he's gone bankrupt in the process, just walked away with his overpriced stadium and list of people who are 'really' to blame.
