Exactly the response I was expecting. Being in the same division doesn’t mean you’re in the same position as a club. And I’m sure you know that, it’s a baalocks argument.
Where did I say I didn’t want him to invest? That’s what we want from any owner. But we want wise investment that doesn’t put the club in danger. It’s not hard to see the difference.
He’s the owner of the club, he has to take ultimate responsibility for everything that happens within it. The recruitment has been woeful for years, he could have taken action to improve the scouting network and appoint a proper DOF. He hasn’t paid enough attention to it.
As for takeovers, I just want our current owner, a self proclaimed Derby fan, to keep the club alive until he can find someone to sell to with genuine intentions, rather than a bunch of potentially dangerous chancers. That too much to ask, really?
I maintain that if Mel wasn’t from Derby and was just some foreign investor there would be absolute outcry at the way he’s run the club. He gets away with it because he seems like a likeable bloke.
