    Ken Tram got a reaction from jimtastic56 in Rooney In!   
    I enjoyed this video. It is about Man Utd, but also includes a few mentions of things that Rooney says to Derby Players.
    It's not a comment on his managerial skills - just that I enjoyed a pro Rooney interview! And his humbleness seems genuine. Rashford seemed to respect Rooney. At least, he seemed to copy what Rooney was saying a few times.
    It was also nice to hear Rooney referring to his wife, with them having been married for so many years.

    Isn't there another thread that this thread can be merged into?
    And, if that happens, feel free to scroll down to the comments that I made about Mel in that thread!

    To those who despair at our plight
    Keep faith with the old black and white
    We’ve been here before
    The rams will still roar
    We’re Derby, we don’t give a shhiite
     
    FFP we may struggle to meet
    We appear to be out on our feet
    But yous who cry foul
    Will be the first to howl
    As you walk down Shaftesbury Street
     
    So Boro or Leeds or gump

    While it causes me great fatigue
    This club I love twice won the league
    I still hope one day
    In the top flight they'll play
    But the last ten years have just been an unending chain of car crashes (quite literally) and events that you really couldn't make up. I mean who hires an agent to be CEO and then doesn't ask questions when he overpays for players that come from the very agency he used to work for. What idiot pays Tom Ince's Mum three quarters of a million to come up with a report that says we should sign Mbappe. And who on Earth thought buying Butterfield and Johnson for £10m on transfer deadline day was a good idea? I mean it's just been from one disaster to the next for decades now, Billy doing his rant on the pitch at Wembley, signing some star from Argentina only to find out he hasn't got a passport then another from Spain only to find out he hasn't got any insoles. We're just a bunch of clowns really, and now we've got some spoilt brat kid posting vides of apartments that he's passing off as his home even though they aren't even in the same continent as where he lives and we've let ourselves get led a complete charade by some bloke from Abu Dhabi who think coz his uncle is rich that means he can just put a football club on his credit card. I remember the days when I thought it really couldn't get any worse than Tommy Doc, then along came Maxwell, then the 3WM and every time I thought to myself that good times were around the corner but they're not - the gypsies who we kicked off the Leys grounds dug that curse in hard and it's the gift that just keeps on giving. Really, that's just about all I can say.
     
    OK, maybe the last line needs a bit of work.

    The extension method is similar to the normal one (value amortisation over the original contract), except adjusted if a contract extension is signed.

    I am guessing that varying Estimated Recoverable Value (ERV) is open to abuse and manipulation? - not that we are accused of that.
    A cynical club up against FFP limits may be tempted to maniupulate these to make compliance in certain years easier (but kicking the bitter pill down the road) - This was one point Derby argued very strongly and convinced the orginal panel that was not the case in Derby's accouts.
    Presumably, the greater the variation of practices, the more difficult it is for the EFL to monitor Financial Fair Play (FFP)?
    Given the ability to govern demonstraited by the EFL in this case, I'd put a fair bet on most of the clubs being better informed on what the rules do and don't say than the regulator (but, the power to enforce the lies with the EFL). Te main thing the arises from this whole afair is that the EFL need to write better regulations. As in just write the regulations better.
    And on that basis, I could envisage there being some rationale for a charge of non compliance, because the rules are there for a reason? - oh we're getting misconduct nailed on I think.

    The rules were only ever introduced to stop someone else doing a Man City and gatecrashing the top table. Any talk of keeping football sustainable was absolute hogwash.

    Yes! Good decision making bodies have very low appeal rates.
    Poor ones have high rates of appeal.
    In some processes, the appeal is almost part of the process, meaning that no-one does their job properly in the first place!
    You're right - if EFL had done their job properly in the first place, this wouldn't have happened.
    Of course ... maybe the EFL did do their job properly, and did raise concerns ... and maybe Derby insisted upon doing things the Derby Way!🐏

    EFL need to monitor. Clubs want to manage. And there's a bit of argy bargy.
