    Albert got a reaction from mike93rh in EFL appeal   
    For all the many things that Mel's regime have made a mess of, ironically, the one which will have the most direct consequences, actually seems to be the one where their ducks were in order. 
    The truly bizarre part of it all is that the amortisation policy used is itself is a double edged sword. The start and end points are the same, it's just how it gets there that are different. 
    Regardless of final outcome, however, the EFL have better PR overall, and given the bumbling nature of Mel's regime otherwise, Derby will come off looking bad regardless of the outcome.

    There is so much about this that doesn't pass the sniff test, the big ones being Alan Nixon's name being attached, and the notion that a decision could already be made but 'kept secret'. 
    Edit: Also, they were only appealing the lesser charge, which doesn't have precedent for a large points deduction to my understanding.

    The drunken match report is back.
    What a day. 
    Seeing the people I haven’t seen for a long, long time at the pub. The people I’ve gone all over the country with. To Grimsby, to Preston, to god knows where.
    Yes, it’s embarrassing that we had to survive on the final day. But I don’t care. I’ve celebrated us pulling something out of the bag on the final day.
    I’ve created a memory that I’ll cherish forever.
    I love football. I love Derby County.
    Up the bloody Rams.

    Nobody deserves singling out after this,  you do your best and that's all anyone can ask
    I have not forgotten the countless times he saved a goal, and made one at the other end.
    The fact is he gave his all for our club, and deserves credit for that!

    What a second half. They fought for it, and ultimately, it was enough. 
    A huge offseason ahead though. A lot of work to do for next season not to be a repeat.

    The players put in a real shift today. You only need to see the celebrations to see that they do care.

    I was in the minority of keeping Nigel Clough. He was building a superb team and would have got us promoted on a ridiculously small budget.

    It's OK, everyone. Relax. The bookies have spoken. We're going to be fine.

    Still here, just not a lot to be bothered commenting about; I am by and large a lurker on here. 
    The UK's vaccine rollout has been very competent, and while there's still some nutty stuff being spread about, we've all heard it before. I could go on about the comedy of errors that is Australia's vaccine rollout, emphasising my point that the Australian federal government has handled the crisis here pretty poorly, but lucked out on the states actually doing something, but it's not really relevant for this forum.

    Good job he left Derby to aid his development, without doing that he wouldn't have this glorious opportunity to play for Derby.

    Albert reacted to Ghost of Clough in Coronavirus   
    It is a bit, isn't it?
    I know I've found it pretty easy. But, I've had a full time job (where members of my family work) throughout the last year (with several hours of overtime each week); plenty of jobs to do in the garden during wave 1, and lots around the house since; a large garden to relax in during the summer; and I live with my wife (I cope well with being by myself anyway).
    There will be many people who don't have the fortune to have anything that I have, but I can't imagine many people in those situations will be coming onto a forum to share how much they're struggling. It's so much easier for a 'well off' person to say they're finding it easy than the other way round.

    As noted, I feel the UK could have done far better out of all this, particularly around supporting those impacted most by the restrictions. That's the biggest tragedy out of all of this. The people who are paying for the errors in not following advice earlier are the very ones the government has refused to support through this.
