    I’ve never disputed he didn’t have good intentions, he’s certainly not an assets stripper or doing anything for personal gain. I feel hugely sorry for the guy but he has been a fool. Most fans would be, that’s why I never wanted a fan running the club.

    Agree 100 percent, wth this, let the Mel lovers carry on defending a man, who has ruined our club,. my opinion, but i think the facts prove what a poor job Mel has done.

    We are questioning everything now it would be fair to say...
    Yep! This is why fans are needed on boards of football clubs, a bit like the German model. Far too many clubs fans are being punished unfairly.

    No i want a club to be well run, be financial secure, and hope 1 day to make it to the prem, without gambling our future at being a club, make no mistake about it, we are in a financial mess, and we could  end up without a Derby County if things are not sorted soon, and who is that all down to, Super Fan Mel

    Why has Derby fan Mel, made such a mess of running OUR great club, he has made more mistakes than any chairmen in a very long time, he took us over as a top championship team, good players, great stadium, and ran well from top to bottom, Mel in his time as owner has ruined us, Mods please do not delete, we have freedom of speech in this our great country, not up to you to delete this post, as its a fair opinion and not personnel in any way.

    Is everything hindsight though? I raised the recruitment department issue years ago and on various occasions. Asked about how many players were signed via our scout reports? No answer given and clear swerve. I had a good discussion with him about 4 players at the time (Thorne, Anya, Butterfield & Martin) I think it was. We were paying them collectively around 100k per week. 400k per month so just under 5m per year. These players were not even offering us anything on the pitch and were either on loan or not being used in the case of Anya. His answer was that these players can still offer us something in terms of other value with youngsters etc - I mean come on!  Lets not even go with his signing of Rooney (under mining Cocu) & Jordan Ibe. Actually starting to think he signed Ibe because he offers value in the way we account - 7m maybe eh.
    The issue has and will always be that Mel Morris does not listen to anyone else but himself. Pretty much like the managers issue, Sam Rush saga (proven in court he was wrong) and now Richard Keogh who again has proven he was wrong in court - no apology or hands up to say look I got this wrong. 
    Then you have the fact that he got rid of anyone that would question him. Where are all the high profile local people - Don Amott, why is he not welcome anymore? 
    So what you are left with is a yes man in Pearce and his step son in the recruitment department, jobs for the boys an all that...
    So if anyone is wondering why its gone wrong its because of Mel Morris and how he is as a person. Ask the local media who deal with him, when he is not banning them for having the audacity to ask a question mind!

    My point was that he's made so many mistakes it's easy to choose from the comprehensive list of.

    It's ironic really that our recruitment has been appalling from the very top downwards, including Morris. 
    I also find it ironic about the aspersions being passed about the potential new owners not being fit and proper yet obviously Morris has done a sterling job in ruining I mean running the club. Pot and kettle.

    I personally wouldnt have been so rooster sure when taking over.
    I always remember Mel being on Soccer AM in the inland days after his takeover and the interviewer went to ask a question that started "if you are promoted to the premier league...", Mel actually stopped him and said "Not if, when..."
    I remember cringing at the time as it was so cocky and you just knew it would backfire.

    Derby blood reacted to Ghost of Clough in What will our punishment be?   
    Any deduction is dependant on the outcome of recalculating the amortisation in the accounts.
    Any deduction would have to be in the 21/22 season.
    Any deduction can be reduced due to mitigating factors.
    Any deduction will not be increased due to extenuating circumstances.
     
    My estimate suggests we don't fail P&S in 17/18.
    KM's estimate of £30m amortisation vs £21m for mine, suggests failing P&S by about £7.2m.
    Based on KM's figure (worst case), we would be due a 6 point deduction.
    Given the precedent set in the SW case of halving the penalty, it becomes 3 points instead.
    Given the EFL's incompetence, that's reduced to 2 points.
    Given the accountants on the DC panel thought we were compliant, reduced further to 1 point
    Given we did not deliberately exceed the limits, rather we did everything we could to stay within them, 0 points deducted

    If we didn't have the downs we wouldn't appreciate the ups. I've seen us win league titles but tonight is just (well, okay nearly) as good. We get to go again next season. Can't wait, when does preseason start! #COYR

    The drunken match report is back.
    What a day. 
    Seeing the people I haven’t seen for a long, long time at the pub. The people I’ve gone all over the country with. To Grimsby, to Preston, to god knows where.
    Yes, it’s embarrassing that we had to survive on the final day. But I don’t care. I’ve celebrated us pulling something out of the bag on the final day.
    I’ve created a memory that I’ll cherish forever.
    I love football. I love Derby County.
    Up the bloody Rams.
