    I don't understand why an independent body would be so happy to see some of its members clubs relegated and in turn find itself in financial ruin. No idea why, especially after a global pandemic when people are fearing for jobs and worrying about money, would the EFL be happy to see a club go into Administration and watch as people are made redundant, losing valuable income and as a result potentially losing their home.
    No idea why, Trevor Birch could then go on OUR local radio and say, in so many words 'thems the rules'.
    For 18 months the world has been turned upside down, everything has changed, peoples lives have changed, yet the EFL went on as though nothing happened, even appealing against Birminghams not guilty plea, mid way through a lockdown.
    They are a dangerous 'firm' ran by dangerous people and as much as I do think Derby will survive, it isn't because the EFL have helped in anyway shape or form.
    They are after a big scalp, a big club to crash and burn, to use as ammo against the Premier League to try and cut a better deal, Parry set his sights on Wednesday and us.

    A husband and father went to work yesterday, to carry out what he believed he stood for in the line of public duty.
    Sad state of affairs, that those nearest have lost that husband and father under such circumstances.

    Have you seen this one, little old but him and Frank clearly have time for each other. Fury has a lot of respect for Frank, you can sense it in his tone, see it in his face how he smiles when Frank says something funny, more seriously the twin tales of mental health issues resonate with each other.
    Giants being humble with each other.

    Shilts finished 5th in the Ballon d'Or whilst playing for us. A position only bettered by (I think) Yashin, Zoff, Kahn, Neuer and Buffon, I think in his last season he had declined dramatically but the first 3 seasons he was immense. That said Poom was bloody amazing as well.

    Also worth mentioning Fury now has a clean sweep of wins over Wilder.
    The first fight he won on points, regardless of the farcical draw decision. Second fight he won by TKO as Wilder's corner threw the towel in. And this time was a KO as the ref waved it off with Wilder on the deck.
    Be interesting to see where Fury goes from here.
    Usyk and AJ will fight again in March. And then whoever wins probably won't return until end of 2022.
    Fury will surely want to take a fight around April/May time next year. Dillian Whyte in a sold-out stadium in May would be a logical homecoming fight should Whyte beat Wallin later this month. I think he could be mandatory anyway.

    What an absolute banger. For about 3 minutes there I had found a new respect for Wilder. Then he flounces and reminds me why I wanted to see him KO'd in the first place. 
    On a positive note, that's the kind of fight we'll still be rabbiting on about in 10 years. Couple of things I don't really get as regards the way Tyson went about his work, but really, who cares? That was a classic.

    Was so chuffed for Fury, don't think I've ever wanted someone to win as badly as I did in this fight. 
    Guy is an inspiration. A role model for everyone, but particularly for working class men and those struggling with mental health problems. If you haven't listened to his interview with Joe Rogan (and a few other outlets) talking about his lowest point driving his sports car.. I highly recommend it. As a father myself I could tear up thinking about how low he must have been to get to that point. 
    The guys life is such an amazing story.

    Matchday 12 – Saturday 9th October 1971 & Spurs were the visitors to the BBG
    The TV cameras returned to catch this top end of the table clash…
     
    Goals from Todd & McFarland only enough to secure a 2-2 draw - curiously, this was the 3rd time the cameras had featured Derby this season & all three were 2-2 home draws. This draw was also our 7th after only 12 games – (spoiler alert) we would only have 3 more draws in the remaining 30 league games of the season…
     


     
    Pre-match Cloughie in typically robust mood about recent signings Roger Davies & Graham Moseley, as well as cup outings at Dundee & Leeds…

     
    Derby’s draw saw them slip into 4th behind Man City on goal average. Elsewhere, Sheffield Utd’s second consecutive defeat saw them replaced at the top by Man Utd, who won at Huddersfield;

    Gibson's involvement is the weirdest bit of the whole saga. Not so much that he chose to get involved, more that the EFL allowed him to be quite as central to it all as he appears to be. 
     
    The sooner we get an independent regulator that isn't beholden to vested interests, the better.

    I would presume the administrators are not emotionally involved in their task other than a successful outcome for their company. They have complete access to all the information available while we only have bits and rumours.
    If they believe there is a case to be made with the points then it could potentially make us far more saleable.
    To liken them to a pound shop Mel Morris makes you appear like you want them, and Derby, to fail.

    We've been quietly taking 'our punishment' for 2 years now! For our supposed crimes and misdemeanours I'd venture we've paid a massive price already and yet you and some others feel we should just lie down and take even more.
    Tell me, what's classy about being a lamb to the slaughter, because for the life of me, I don't see your point.

    The argument for reducing the points deduction, rather than claiming it should be withdrawn completely, is precisely because it's accepted that Covid wasn't the only factor, but it was the one that tipped the club into insolvency. It isn't hard to understand that losing 2/3rds of the club's revenue would have a devastating effect if replacement funding wasn't forthcoming.
