  1. https://innercirclesports.com/ Inner Circle Sports provides services including corporate finance, capital raising, valuations and advisory on acquisitions and sales of sports teams. It also helps wealthy investors buy soccer teams. https://www.forbes.com/sites/robertkidd/2019/09/11/so-you-want-to-buy-a-soccer-club-heres-what-you-need-to-know/ In my opinion, Derby should be on the phone to this firm immediately.

Also why remove his twitter account. For me its a non starter. I would recommend to mel that he pays for a consultancy service like KPMG or deloitte to source a good buyer for the club, they can audit the buyer to make sure they are of good character and have the funds they are experts at handling business issues and would definately be able to find interested people to buy the club.

  3. Keogh being drunk, should not have got into drunk Tom Lawrence's car. all three should have been punished, Lawrence, Bennett and Keogh. 2.3 million is probably too high as keogh deserved a club punishment but the clubs punishment of dismissal probably was too strong especially as the others don't seem to have received a punishment.

    By altering their accountancy practices in regards to the valuation of their players, Derby reportedly removed losses in excess of £30m over a three-year spell between 2015-18. According to the EFL’s profit and sustainability rules, a club can be charged if a loss of £39m or over is recorded over a three-year period. https://inews.co.uk/sport/football/Derby-county-points-deduction-efl-appeal-ffp-relegation-championship-explained-995199

    The issues not relating to this season its relating to accounting for how the club paid for players in 3 previous seasons stretching back from 2017. The daily mail ... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9566403/Derby-RELEGATED-Championship-EFL-pushing-points-deduction.html The thing with that is Derby have the legal right to an appeal before a relegation due to points deduction can be applied. The championship season however doesn't finish until after the final play off game so they have a very short window before a points deduction would have to be applied
  6. I think its another red flag for alonso takeover. The first red flag is the rumour that efl asked alonso to put 35 million into an English bank account to proof intention to buy and that he has the funds to buy the club. The second red flag is that there doesn't seem to be a consortium involved in purchasing Derby, so show us the money source. Third red flag, rumour that alonso believes a failed manager like Rooney should stay at the club next season, a lack of football experience in my opinion thinking that way. Fourth red flag, rumoured potential attempt to attract invest

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/Derby-county-points-deduction-survival-24078183.amp Macclesfield case last season is precedent for points being deducted retrospectively.

    Derby blocked Daily Telegraph from reporting on efl appeal two weeks before after appeal and after last day of season.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/Derby-county-takeover-erik-alonso-5396447.amp Might be a good idea for Derby to hire this football finance expert for appeal against efl decision

    Sheffield wednesday receive a 12 point deduction, reduced to 6 on appeal. If the Mail is correct and Derby are able to appeal, does that mean the 3 points removed and a fine instead. Could it mean a transfer ban for the club, that would relegated Derby just as fast. I'm sure Wycombe would have something to say on all this

    The crux of the matter valuation of players, not applied properly and a 3 point deduction could be applied this season relegating club. I believe Derby have the right to appeal the decision.
