    Raich Carter got a reaction from Norman in Mel Morris fan club   
    This whole 'paying Paul Ince's mum for scouting' thing... I imagine it was actually just a signing-on fee paid to his mum for tax reasons (i.e. his dad's earnings would put him into higher tax bracket) so whilst it's a catchy title, in reality I suspect it's just a tax-efficient way of paying a signing-on fee.
    Having said that, looking back at some of the decisions made by a number of key people involved, they do seem particularly stupid so who knows.
    With regard to who's fault all this is - the buck stops with Mel but he does seem spectacularly unlucky in terms of key staff selection, signings, injuries, COVID, pub crawls, etc. Overall, he seems to have had his fair share of luck so perhaps, in the bigger picture, it was karma.

    Exactly @TigerTedd it’s not the owners, it’s not the players and it’s not the managers. It is we who are Derby County through thick and thin, we have always stepped up when our backs are against the wall COYR 🐏🐏

    Raich Carter got a reaction from Carl Sagan in Derby County Administration (with the slight possibility of Liquidation still there)   
    I'd agree with that. They have no axe to grind, not invested (in any sense, etc) so they must have looked at it logically and decided it's worth challenging. I don't think it's for the benefit of the club - it looks like they think it's just plain wrong. 
    We don't have the insider knowledge to know all the whys and wherefores but fingers crossed. 
    PS Not a chance they'll get it over-turned!

    Raich Carter got a reaction from Iniestagram in Steve Gibson trying to liquidate Derby   
    Evil doesn't believe itself to be evil so what is his actual motivation? 
    I totally understand him having a vendetta against Morris but not against the club (which is, at the end of the day, the fans) because we've not actually done anything wrong. Other than regard Boro to be completely irrelevant to football. If they disappeared tomorrow, would anyone notice...? 
    If he's going against DCFC to ruin us and get back at Morris then I'm not sure it's worth it as perhaps Morris won't be that bothered about whether DCFC continues or not...? Dunno. These big-time businessmen and their egos...
    If I was Derby I wouldn't engage lawyers. I'd re-employ Martin Kuhl and let him handle it how he sees fit.

    So many good names...
    I'll throw in 'Wanchope' so we can ask for a Wanchope Top.
    Or a Camp Shandy. 
    Or a Higginbotham Top.
    Or Half an Hector.
    I'll stop.

    Eh? Are people forgetting that Keogh got himself injured? So they didn't 'all do the same' - Keogh made himself useless to DCFC. The others did a very silly thing but were still capable of playing. 
    With regard to Mutu - yes, Chelsea successfully sued him for the £15m.

    Not sure now is really the time to go over the rights and wrongs of Ramstrust, especially about something that happened about 16 years ago. Time to be united.

    Sorry, just that it was meant as I 'it isn't all doom and gloom' post and then got people with daft analogies and missing the gist. I just meant it's not all bad but clearly not a situation anyone wanted.
    Cash flow - who knows. The whole situation was ridiculous but FWIW I agree that Keogh should have been sacked. But then so should Lawrence and Mason as whilst they might have had perceived commercial value, in reality, they're both poo.

    That's a good point and obviously true but that bit is entirely Keogh's fault as he's the one that got himself injured by making silly choices. Even if we disagree with that aspect (i.e. accidents happen, etc), it's certainly not the clubs fault that he got injured.

    I think the point being made is that the decison not to pay him didn't cost us because if we had paid him, he would have been paid for doing nothing which is how things have turned out anyway.  If he had returned to fitness within the remaining term of his contract, he would not have got in the team ahead of Davies,  Clarke or Wisdom.

    If Keogh hadn't have acted irresponsibly then you're right, it wouldn't have happened.
    My point was financially we lost nothing.

    Not sure if it’s been said or not but the pay out was just the money Keogh would have been paid if we hadn’t sacked him so not sure it’s quite as bad as some think.

    Raich Carter reacted to Ted McMinn Football Genius in Recovering 21pts: is it possible?   
    Forever hopeful that we can scrap our way out of this.
    1- we’ve eroded the -12 points already
    2- we are hard to beat and well organised (it appears)
    3- several other teams could well be compounded with some level of points deductions too
    4- we have the best midfielder outside the Premier league due to return to our ranks by January 🙏🏻🤞🏻
    5- king CKR is due back in to the squad
    6- if we get new owners before January then just maybe we can make a few additions 🙏🏻🤞🏻
    7- our fans are standing up to be counted and as a whole we are unified against everyone else (good old siege mentality) 👊🏻🤜🏻🤛🏻
     
    8- we have FORTRESS Pride Park
    9- we have something to fight for
    10- WE ARE DCFC NOW LETS HAVE IT 🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏
    if we do manage to pull this off then someone should make a film about it.

    Raich Carter got a reaction from Kathcairns in Steve McClaren   
    <sigh>I heard / saw him, numerous times, dodging the question. With my own eyes and ears - not via a Twitter quote. Maybe he said that near the end of the furore or something (IDC) but the damage was done. He dodged, used abstract terms and this language that does everything but convince the listener that they're answering with any integrity -  seems to be de rigueur these days. 
    Ultimately, it's inarguable that he did not do a good job of distancing himself from the job as evidenced by the fact he apologised for the same when he came back!

    Can we move on?

    It's ridiculous that they get away with it. If there's one homophobic or racist word then they're out. If they look back at the CCTV and the match they can see who was singing or at least send the stewards in.
    The mentality of these people is just so wrong I'd be quite happy for them to banned for life.
