    SaintRam got a reaction from angieram in A New Swiss Ramble Analysis   
    There's a twitter user named Swiss Ramble who regularly does financial reviews of various clubs. His latest look into Derby has just been posted. Thread below linked tweet.
    I'd post it all in here for non Twitter users but it's bloody long.
     
    My biggest take away: FFP + Parachute Payments is ducking balls.

    Pretty sure you said he was going to go in January of that year. He left in June.
    So no, you don't get that one.

    Curtains once told me before last season that none of our youth players  were ready for the first team. I asked him why and he just said he’d ‘seen more youth games than I’d had hot dinners’.
    Ive just let the last 12 months play out really...

    If Chelsea wanted Frank they would have identified him way before Sarri finally left. There is just no common sense behind Chelsea waiting to appoint him at this stage. They're dragging their heels for Rafa I think.

    He really wouldn’t. Not exactly an interesting division but an easy job to get your name out, wouldnt leave unless to the prem. You’re right tho as I’ve said previously that it’s not the time really to discuss replacements until we get that official approach... until the Lampard remains in full command, and it would be preferable he stays there for continuity purposes. Gerrard would certainly excite me but there are other names out there too, we’ll see who ends up linked.

    Just to play devil's advocate;
    Firstly, they've known he's been leaving for a long time so they'd have been perfectly within their right to begin the process before he left.
    Secondly, the all knowing Sky journalists told us that they were going to have a successor in place before officially letting Sarri go. 😄 
     
    But back to the people complaining about the time it's taking, I don't think we have to wait until they appoint someone necessarily, I don't think Lampard would sign an extension with us if they're interested so if that news comes out of Derby, I think we can mostly put this to rest until Chelsea's next vacancy.

    It's unreasonable for him to say "I will definitely be here next season." in a statement. Why?

    What if Mel goes mad and sacks him? What if Chelsea do approach us to offer him their job? What if England sack Southgate and come for him or freakin Real Madrid ( neither of those will happen, for clarity, I'm just making a point) for that matter. You don't know what's going to happen.

    Now lets look back at what's happened since the play-off final.
     
    He's said "I'm happy here, I love working here and have two years on my contract." and he's said "I'm preparing for next season."

    Mel Morris has said "We are looking to offer Frank an improved contract.", "Chelsea have not approached us for Frank's services", 
    Additionally (but just as an additional as we can't be 100% certain its come from the club) we've heard today that Derby are not looking for plan B managers.
     
    So, what can we take from that? Well, it suggests that despite the complete national journalistic furore over this whole situation, the situation within the club is very much unchanged and unaffected by it because there's no evidence from their perspective that Chelsea are trying to get him. 
    Ergo, there's no reason to suspect that anything's different since the last time Frank made a statement, and thus it's unreasonable to expect a new one at this time.

    He'd be mad to say that. It doesn't benefit Derby or him. It just pleases some fans. The best way for him to get everything he wants is to have Mel think Chelsea are chasing him. 
    He doesn't have to go in to Mel's office and say "give me this or I'm gone". The speculation puts pressure on Derby.
    Frank can carry on doing his day to day life and plan for the season ahead. 
    If he's staying then all the hysterics will be over with when Chelsea appoint someone new. At the minute whatever he says will be twisted and broken down and doesn't benefit him at all. 
    He's taken his holiday, looking at stuff from Twitter I think a lot of people should have taken theirs
