    Rab a dab doo reacted to Long Time Lurker in EFL Verdict   
    I don't think I've seen our fanbase so panicky since we last had to defend a corner......
    May be it's right to be panicky.  I'm always struck, though, by how many people immediately leap to us being doomed to all sorts of terrible things - administration, points deductions in more than one season, etc etc. I do wonder what people were expecting.  We were referred to the DC solely for a sanction to be applied.  Given the amortisation issue, we were bound to have to refile the accounts.  However, from what little I understand of these things, it seems far from certain that we're going to breach the FFP limits, and even if we did a retrospective sanction is probably unworkable. As for the fine, I bet Mel & co can't believe their luck - it's about as derisory (to the EFL) as we could have hoped for.
    Speaking of Mel, I see many feel that he is largely responsible for where we are.  Perhaps he is. He's made many mistakes over the last seven years.  Funnily enough, I've made some mistakes too during that time, and its just possible that one or two other posters have as well.  I didn't, though, make the cardinal error of spending £200m of my own money on something that, had it come off, would have lifted an entire city and thrilled many thousands of others, while also bringing untold economic benefits to Derbyshire. I've seen somewhere (possibly on here) someone saying that we're in a worse place now than under the Three Amigos.  Given that one regime led to criminal convictions for stealing from us while the other has spent £200m  of their own money(however unwisely), that seemed an interesting moral comparison to me.  As for our inevitable relegation, compare George Burley season 1 with George Burley season 2 - very little is a given in football.
    I note that some are saying the takeover must be off.  I can't help feeling though that the possibility of getting sanctions from a DC that was set up solely to apply those sanctions may have occurred to those involved in the negotiations.  What would our prospective bidders have assumed that those sanctions might be - could it be that they would have to have their hair done by Mel's barber?  Or would they be forced to listen to repeat playings of Queen's greatest hits?  Or could they possibly have guessed that it might have something to do with our future league status, in which case we couldn't have criticised them for walking away, although there is no actual evidence that they have done so.
    So should we panic now?  Or should we spend quality time with our other halves, speak to the kids, load the dishwasher, read a book, binge on a box set, order a take away, debate Anton's appointment as a Strictly judge, dig the garden, play golf, watch Derbyshire CCC (OK maybe not that one...).  We can't influence what's going to happen no matter what anguish we go through, and so I'm going to save my panicking for when an attack of ours breaks down, and Huddersfield's star player (or possibly Accrington Stanley's) spots that Marshy is nearer their goal line than ours...............

    With a mixture of a few astute loans and some free/cheap signings maybe mid table.
    With the present squad and possible loss of the out of contract players and no new signings, flirting with the relegation zone again.

    Rab a dab doo got a reaction from Carl Sagan in when can we expect the player retained list?   
    The only 'realistic' loanee with chance of returning I think is Edmundson because for a number of reasons.
    I don't think he figures in Rangers plan's and may well be let go.
    Secondly he cannot be on very high wages.
    Finally he know's in our present situation he could play himself into a permanent position in the team.

    Bottom line seems to be EFL committee will continue to hound us until they can pin something on us just to prove THEY were right.
    Be this a trivial slap on the wrist, or fine or worst case a points deduction.

    I cannot see how the original tribunal could have deemed to have got it so wrong.
    If suddenly were going from having not even a fine imposed against us to now on appeal people taking about fines and 'large' points deductions 
    What's changed so drastically ? 
    New evidence ? New witnesses ?, Rule changes ? If so surely there should be a complete NEW tribunal hearing starting at beginning not an appeal of a decision already reached.

    Poor old Erik his chances of getting a cut price bargain just went up in smoke on Saturday.
    We'll see now if he's really serious the season over, were a championship side.
    So let's see the colour of his money and get this done if not move aside and let someone else make an offer.
