    This isn’t law making or law giving. It’s politics pure and simple. Lobbyists, polarised mindsets, unspoken agendas from numerous sources of power and influence. I’d almost feel sorry for the lawyers but they are making a pile of dough from the fall out from every party so maybe not ! 
    FFP is all about stoping an unfair advantage .. ummmm well DFC started in the championship, are still in the championship and the majority of parachute clubs continue their existence in the yo-yo world that is the lower half of the prem along with the odd enforced break down with the rest of us lads in the championship. Except perhaps Middlesbrough who seem to have spent an awful lot of money with limited results. 

    this is tiresome in the extreme and is killing my love of this game.

    I think whatever the EFL want the EFL get.
    Is it just a coincidence that every time the EFL appeal they win? Does that mean that every person who sits on the first independent panel of every case is completely incompetent and isnt able to come up with a decision based on the information provided.
    Strange as well that the EFL are able to appeal a decision made by an independent panel and if the original decision is overturned (everytime) the club isnt allowed to challenge it.
    Cant be just me that thinks we have a legal system in the real world and then football that seems it's own entity with power hungry greedy barstewards who can change rules at the drop of a hat to suit.
    One last thing. Why are we being so severely hounded for breaching rules that have seen us gain absolutely nothing over recent years and clubs like Forest and Watford can have owners who own 2 clubs and sell players between them for over inflated fees to circumnavigate FFP.
    And dont even get me started on West Ham who can literally field 2 illegal players costing Sheff United their place in the prem, are found guilty and fined 10 million, but dont receive a points deduction. Then get given a stadium at our expense.

    If you call Forest, Notts Forest their fans go nuts, miserable gets.
    I thought let’s embrace the media’s insistence on attaching Frank Lampard’s to the clubs name for a laugh and it started there.
    It’s really not meant to be that serious, I mean we even have sausages in the main board description.
    When Cocu was here, we introduced the Oranje theme, it’s all just a little bit of fun when each new era starts.
    I get Rooney isn’t massively popular with fans at the minute, but removing it just feels wrong whilst he’s in the job.
    The day Rooney leaves I will remove it as I did Lampard and promise to never place a managers name on there again, even if we get Klopp, so none of you will have to be offended by it when you look at the homepage again. Deal?

    Meanwhile Aston Villa now they are a Premiership club escape their punishment  So where is the fairness in that. If we are to be held accountable so should they. In addition to that this must be costing  the EFL a hell of a lot of money, I'd love to know how much and who is going to pay for it?

    A big beasty leader at CB would be a priority. I was trying to remember what happened to Goode from Northampton who impressed me before and of course he signed for Brentford last year. 
    If they were to go up, I'd ask the question about him. Doesn't seem to have played a huge amount for them this season and they might look to improve on him for the Prem. Its not clear what they paid for him but he's the type of player I'd like to see.

    Pretty amazing to think that we had Tomori and Mount, both now starring for two of the biggest clubs in the world (Mount arguably a CL finalists best player), and only just scraped into the play offs.

    The words of MM. I heard he personally apologised to some fans outside PP yesterday for “ the season you’ve had to endure”.
    I hope the Club can all get together soon - perhaps a Fans Forum to explain what’s in store for next season. I don’t know why but I have a great sense of optimism for us next year.

    The actions will happen over the course of weeks, months even years.
    Fans have been calling for an update from the club. That has been acknowledged by this statement. Hopefully, we will soon get to hear more details of the plans for moving forwards.
    This is a start to opening that communication....a good thing.

    We need a centre back who is a leader and vocal, as good as Clarke is he isnt that. We need a younger version of Davies, just like we need a younger & more mobile version of CKR

    Huge relief. 
    I arrived at the ground yesterday at 09:30am. I was the first there. The rain gave it a poignancy as I stood by Cloughie & Taylor and the voice of Brian and what he’d say to the team played in my head (“Look! If you can’t go out today and beat these lot, then you want bloody shoe-tin...)” 10 O’clock came and gradually a few other faces appeared. The rain eased. The stewards manned the barricades. A couple of friendly police said “hello”; “ hello, hello, hello!” I replied and they smiled back to themselves. Suddenly the crowd was apparent and the black flag unfurled. A frenzy of photographs and the air lifted; a few chants rippled up (“since I was young...”) and the sound of a drum (a guy was banging the road sign). The sound of some beer cans being opened (hissss!) and suddenly I realised there was quite a crowd and that little fizz of excitement as I read the banner“Just leave everything on the pitch, that’s all we ask” and suddenly Jake Buxton was in front of us and now it kicked of “Jake Bux-ton is a foot-ball genius” and the eyes watered, and cars hooted as they drove by and the singing continued “we love you Derby, we do” and the players got out of their cars, ashen-faced and looked over as black and white smoke filled the air and more cars hooted and Jay-sun Knight, Knight, Knight, and more cars hooted and I choked on the smoke. Football is nothing without the fans.
    A remarkable day. It felt so good to be back amongst real football fans. Passion and that unmistakable chat “ay up, me duck”.

    So now its sunk in.. what is everyone's over-riding emotion? 
    Still relief for me...to wake up a Championship club, one good season away from the Premier League. 
    I don't resent the players milking-it at all, football turns on small margins and we didn't celebrate the QPR final because 'we deserved more and we were unlucky', so celebrate when you can its been a miserable season. 
    Really proud of the fans who turned-up and glad it was worth it. 
    Second emotion is that I want to feel positive now. If it is going to be Rooney, let's make the decision now and get behind him. Ideally it wouldn't be him for me, but I can't face months of turmoil. The sale needs sorting and same goes for Alonso, if its him let's get it done and get behind him. The sale/new contracts of players is riding on who owns the club and who manages it so it all needs to fall into place quickly. Don't want to have a season like this again. 
    We start the season on a level playing field and I desperately want to feel proud of the team and get into the stadium. Let's make decisions and start to move forward ASAP!
