    I simply quoted a fellow poster who's been one of the most reliable sources of insider info on the club on here and also on other forums in the past. No idea who @Super Derby Super Rams's sources are and I'm sure he wouldn't reveal them!

    kash_a_ram_a_ding_dong reacted to Miggins in Mel Morris interview on Radio Derby 1pm   
    According to Radio Derby the interview was to discuss the events of the last 48 hours, the events of the last couple of years which culminated in Friday nights statement and then to talk about the club going forwards. As such the failed deals are important background as to where the club is now. He said that he decided to sell the club around June 2019 and was determined to find the best possible owner. They thought the club had been almost sold in January 2020 but because of the EFL charges the deal collapsed. In December 2020 contracts had been exchanged but the funds did not materialize and so he was left to finance the club again. Then in February 2020 Covid struck. The club revenues dried up, there could be no face to face meetings with prospective owners, no visits and this made it very difficult to sell the club.
    He said that selling a club is a horrendously difficult process and he hopes that the administrators have an easier time.
    I apologise for any mistakes I might have made!

    My take on that 
    He is absolutely right without covid this would never had happened but Covid has happened it is here 
    we look to have failed the FFP in one year by £4 million so Potential 4pt deduction so I assume that may linger on? Will that be £4 million on following years? And more 4 point deductions - who knows as the EFL seem to double count.
    we were denied the £8 million loan in January by the EFL ( premiership money) to help pay tax and NI for unexplained reasons which is a shame because now the HMRC won’t be getting that money as a nation because they will be offered let’s say 20 pence in the pound in the not to distant future.
    he mentioned about us not being to extend a players contact to keep him a year longer to maybe keep his value or sell him ( we know this to be Jack Marriott) he also mentioned that another championship club lost a lot of money in a similar way - my view is that it would be Reading FC and Omar Richards who left to join Bayern Munich was it on a free) 
    He mentioned that since F&P has come in only Two clubs have been promoted without breaching F&P 
    He mentioned that 15 calls of interest in buying the club came in over the weekend which he believes 2-3 have the means and intent to do so 
    I believe he mentioned that he still owns the stadium so if he gets anything back it may come from that and his losses are in excess of £200 million of his own money 
    He said he tried and failed and was sorry that we are where we are.
    He wouldn’t go into depth about the EFL at this point in time 
    we’ll that’s what I heard I read others may have different opinions.

    On the contrary, I want to hear what he has to say. Then I can make my own mind up about it before it is twisted, misinterpreted,  slanted either way to suit people's agendas before posting on here.

    Ive never been a big fan of Rooney and have been critical of him throughout his time at Derby,in both roles, but today he impressed me with his humility and consideration for the hundreds of staff who are facing redundancy at the club.
    In addition he continued to express his loyalty to the club and seemed to mean it.
    I'm slowly warming to him through these difficult times.

    Just in from a phenomenal afternoon at pride park (had to drop the number 1 son back at Nottingham uni afterwards)
    Almost had us in tears at the start of the game as the crowd was the loudest and proudest I've ever heard it and the players reacted to it as soon as they came down the tunnel...even they were in awe of the noise and the stoke fans were immediately shocked into silence.
    Immensely proud of the team today who all fought like lions and of all of the fans who continued to be relentless in their support.
    I love this club and I'll support it whatever is thrown at us and wherever we end up.

    Dawes had nothing to lose from not asking those questions once he is in there,live on air.
    Mel's not in a position to freeze any journalists out anymore.
    I'm one of the few who hadn't got a major issue with Dawes and I expect he will ask the relevant questions.

    kash_a_ram_a_ding_dong reacted to David in DCFC Adverts   
    The news broke as I was sat in the pub with my fiancé, going over wedding plans believe it or not.
    Felt like a punch to the gut on so many levels. I've almost become immune now to tabloid stories on possible point deductions, however wasn't prepared for administration. 
    I changed the ads on my phone, understanding that administrators would have us down with the milkman at the bottom of the priority list, that's just how it is.
    There is a contract in place for the adverts with a notice period which has not been triggered by either side, however I presume the process would allow for immediate termination and have no doubts this will happen.
    I have had a great relationship with a number of people at the club, people that will now be in fear of their jobs.
    I'm not going to pressurise them for any kind of clarity as I'm sure they will be just as much in the dark as we have been.
    Said it on many occasions, no adverts = no forum, it's been great to show you all relevant ads for RamsTV, megastore, tickets etc. 
    Maybe it's something that once the administration process is over can resume, I just don't know right now.
