  1. After about a year of lurking, my first post was on (I think) Ramarena. I posted that despite his lack of league experience, Derby should consider Nigel Clough as our manager - this was about 3 months before he was appointed. I was quite taken aback by how much abuse I got. I remember a poster called Mark La calling me a moron and saying the the club would never appoint him. The grief I got put me off posting for a while. I couldn't resist going back on to bump the thread though. Then joined the old DET forum - which I really liked. When it closed down I joined COYR and about a year later
  2. Social distancing is already very relaxed. If the virus is going to spread during warm weather (apparently virtually all viruses of this type spread more quickly when it gets cold), it will be doing so now. By September there will be either a really significant 2nd wave and no one will be allowed in, or there'll be no need to worry (until December anyway) and we can all just pile in as normal.
  3. I fully understand your argument, and it was also mine. I think your understanding of our tangible assets policy is the same as mine was. Amortisation has the same start and end points, we just adjusted the middle bit to suit. I've been told that this is wrong. We, apparently, count out of contract players as having a significant value - which makes no sense and is why it ends P&S.
  4. A very odd post. Bills are paid in cash, not assets. The assets of a football club are also very hard to to turn into cash quickly. As an accountant, I am sure you know that cash flow is what causes companies to fold. Our cash flow is almost completely dependent on the largess of our owner.
  5. It's very odd indeed. Logically, if they had a problem with our amortisation system, why has it taken so long? I can't begin to work that one out.
  6. EFL regs on the punishment - 92.1 The Disciplinary Commission may at any time make a decision, and may make more than one decision at different times on different aspects of the matters to be determined. 92.2 A decision may: 92.2.1 order a party to do or refrain from doing anything; 92.2.2 order a specific performance; 92.2.3 make a declaration on any matter to be determined; 92.2.4 issue a reprimand or warning as to the future conduct of a party; 92.2.5 order the payment of compensation to The League, any Club, any other club, Player or other person; 9
  7. I think that relegation is extremely unlikely without a points deduction. Our home form is should see us over the line comfortably. It would be almost unthinkable that all the teams below us suddenly became unbeatable - one or two might, but not all of them. The real threat is a points deduction. I reckon that is a very real danger. Firstly, there's a small but realistic chance that we go into administration. I don't think this will happen, but I don't think it's completely impossible that Mel can't or won't continue to shovel money in an the investment is taking longer than one of my DIY
  8. Looks like it's a different investor this time.
  9. You do realise when the Corona virus will take hold in Washington don't you. Whole team quarantined for a month. Massive fine for failing to fulfill fixtures and instant relegation to the Conference. The EFL laughing like Muttley.
  10. Mel reckons that concerts during the early summer are not very lucrative. There are about 200 venues available to promoters during this period. This drives down the hire fee, The alternative is to promote the event ourselves, but there's apparently a very big chance of making a loss unless, especially at an unestablished venue with inexperienced promoters. That's the idea behind the roof and pitch cover. We should have a venue available through the whole year. We can then charge more for stadium hire as there will be fewer rivals. As time goes on, Pride Park gets established as a venue a
  11. I do hope that Chris Coles is just getting a slap on the wrist and serving a one match suspension. After Owen Bradley left, Dave Fletcher took on his role for a while. I can't actually give you a reason why, but he makes me want stick pins in my eyes to dull the pain of listening to Radio Derby. Chris Coles, imo, is about 10,000 times better.
  12. I do think there is a bit of an age thing in this, so ok boomer might well be appropriate - as well as quite amusing. I think many people brought up in the 70s and before have a different understanding of what racism is. We grew up with the National Front on the streets, apartheid in the news and Roots on the TV. This defined racism, and racists were properly evil. The vast majority of people hated these racists, but watched the Black and White Minstrels and Jim Davidson. They were being entertaining, not racist by the definition that most people accepted. Yet the understanding of w
  13. I actually liked Ramage as a broadcaster. I don't think he was overly negative, just said what he was thinking. I liked that he allowed some of his personality to come through. He also had a point about Bogle needing to get back to doing the things he was doing last season - closing down, early crossing, busting a gut to get blocks in etc. The stuff about Max Bird was wrong though. I hope Craig Ramage gets through this OK. In most jobs there are things you can do which will get you fired instantly. For a broadcaster, being openly racist in public is one of those things. He had to g
  14. In fairness to Radio Derby, they couldn't leave the unedited version up. The police will be looking into what Ramage said. It's on the border between legal and illegal. His defence is that he mis-spoke, so will almost certainly face no charge. But if Radio Derby left the clip up whilst knowing its offensive nature, they would be committing a criminal offence. They should publish a legally non-committal explanation though.
  15. I heard it on the radio, but didn't notice him saying 'black players', but I was driving at the time. If he did say it, then he will be deservedly sacked. No excuse for casual racism.
