    You carry on with your blind faith in him, I’m more concerned about my club going to the wall than if you agree or not with me. All entitled to opinions, I don’t see someone 100% committed anymore.
    And I have every right to question how the clubs run, just as every supporter does.

    Isn't it about time this thread was closed? There is not going to be an Abu Derby County anymore!
    It's possible it will be Dellby County now and even that is doubtful.

    I think it's time now for Mel to give an interview and let fans know where the club stands. You can't carry on with players not paid. Imo we have potentially a good young manager but if we are not careful he will be gone...... Very worrying times.

    Whats most worrying for me is that weeks and weeks ago fans on an Internet forum could see the warning signs and see this coming, but the people running the club couldn't, surely it was obvious?

    Give it time. Derby are the first of many. We didn't pay the wages last year either, but then proceeded to pay them for an entire year until we again couldn't pay them at the end of the year.

    Exellent post @Millenniumram.
    If there was a school that taught how to run a club, Morris would be the the way not to run one. Countless publicity stunts, financial mismanagement and so much more. The man is a disaster, and he is destroying our club. I for one can't wait for him to feck off, but with the way things are going, it looks like he is going to be round a while longer. For the sake of the club, we need him out the door ASAP.

    There’s still only one man to blame for all this mess. And his name is Mel Morris. Said a while ago his disasterclass of how to run a football club would eventually see us down rather than up, and sadly, I’m being proved right.
    All the poor recruitment decisions and managerial appointments were always going to come back to bite us. That was obvious to most, apart from the Mel can do no wrong lot. But even I didn’t think he’d get us in this much of a mess. I mean last season was bad enough, with all the negative headlines around various FA/EFL investigations, literal car crashes, failed investment, wages not being paid for the first time etc etc. Think we went through enough pain with the crap team we had last season.
    I thought we might finally start to fix things and put together a capable side last summer. But no, we made things even worse somehow. We let some of our better players leave for free, let two of our young stars leave without reinvesting the money, and worst of all, we STILL didn’t fix our incompetent attack. In fact, we made it worse. Absolutely criminal to leave us so short of attacking options going into a season. I can only describe it as complacency by the board, who clearly thought we had enough to stay up without further signings. They couldn’t have been more wrong and stupid. And yet the complacency continued, giving Cocu far too much time that we didn’t have, and then thinking it was safe to put a rookie managerial team in charge. Again, utterly stupid. Even more stupid is they’ve put him in charge on a 2 year contract!!! It’s like no one understands the danger that we’re in. Maybe they’ll understand when our relegation is confirmed in 20 games time, which is exactly what’s going to happen.
    Mel has taken on a Derby team on the brink of promotion, systematically destroyed them, and then left us on the brink of League One. Worse than that, he’s now attempting to sell us to a load of clowns from the UAE, who evidently don’t have the money to buy a football club, and he didn’t even have a backup plan if it didn’t go through! Now we’re left with a load of debt and players who haven’t been paid, putting us in real danger of administration. 
    If anyone else was our owner, at any other time, there’d be protests about this mess. It really is that bad. We’re watching our football club die in front of our eyes, and there’s nothing we can do about it.

    Mel took over a club on the verge of promotion to the Premier League and leaves us a club on the verge of relegation into League One. Case closed.

    Might be better to vote once mels tenure is over. If the rumours of administration are true as per the abu Derby thread then its looking like Mel is one of the worst owners we have ever had.
    Hope it's not true.

    It’s getting harder and harder to defend Mel (certainly until we discover the truth) but one thing to remember when considering who is the worst owner is the circumstances they have had to contend with.
    Yes I know things weren’t good as recently as twelve months ago but what has happened since then, in particular the last few months, has been made a whole lot worse by the unprecedented circumstances football is facing right now. It must be the worst time possible to get a decent price and close the deal on the sale of the club and, outside of the premier league (as usual) the most difficult time to keep a club solvent. I suspect there are many clubs not far behind us on the road to potential administration.
    Mel has certainly made some big mistakes but, if the virus hadn’t happened the club would probably still be able to pay its way and a sale completed more smoothly. Then, we’d probably look back on Mel’s tenure and think, we had some exciting times and flirted with promotion but, because those attempts failed, he left us in a bit of a financial mess.
    So, whilst you can’t entirely blame the virus for the clubs plight, without it I doubt we’d be considering Mel as the worst owner (worse than Maxwell? surely not).

    He can do no wrong to many on here, but looking at his tenure overall, it's not been good.  Maybe he had good intentions for the club, but he's taken the club backwards since he took ownership.
    Now he seems to have lost interest and wants out.
    For his own and the club's sake, the sooner he goes, the better.
