    I'd agree - if this was a normal business, but let's be honest - it's not
    If the sale offer from Mel was any good, we would have had our hands snapped off by actual real serious business men, and not chancers with shady backgrounds who have already exposed themselves as people who have failed to buy other clubs (because they don't actually have any money)
    I doubt any serious consultancies would go anywhere near being involved in trying to sell the club

    "Hello, Mel Morris here, could I speak to Mr Gadsby please?"
    "Hey @AdamRusty15! How's it hanging buddy? I see you got my message!"
    "Haha sure did zigga-zig-ah! So you got 100 million lying about?"
    "Will you take 100 quid?"
    "That's 50x more than the boxer had!"

    Kevin Hector and Dave Mackay, one a fantastic goal scorer for us and the other a colossus of a leader. Two inspirational players. Honourable mentions to Roy McFarland and Archie Gemmill who were fantastic players when I first started watching Derby play in 1970.

    Give him a free transfer well past his best and was awful yesterday. We can't have sentiment at our club if we need to move forward.

    If Alonso doesn’t take over, which I think will be a blessing, then can we do things a little differently next time?
    Is it possible to get proof of funds and the fit & proper test done before announcing the agreement publicly? Two announced takeovers which vanish into thin air is embarrassing enough, let alone any more.
    My hope is now we are confirmed to be a Championship club again next season, and start level with the other 23 clubs, other waiting parties may be willing to come forward. It should be an exciting proposition once fan restrictions are lifted. Especially given the fact that it’s almost a complete fresh start on the pitch.

    Relieved we stayed up.
    Horrified it was because of an 89th min Cardiff goal and a pts deduction.
    Great to see fans and players pre and post match.
    Squad is tiny and not good enough.
    Where are the accounts, are we embargoed?
    If so, how do we improve the squad? If the accounts are bad, do we get a points deduction?
    If there's no money does it mean no new contracts?
    I hope Mel can find a responsible new owner.
    Terrified of Alonso.
    If he can't find an owner by June, what happens to the MSD repayment? Admin? Points deduction? Nervous for DCFC staff.
    Will we be back in the stadium? Will we start on -12? Have we just delayed the inevitable?
    So yeah, a few questions.

    Magnificent servant to the club, the dedication he’s given us over the past 9 years couldn’t ever be undone in one game.

    Regardless of his ability at this level you've got to look at his injury record - since he made 46 and 44 league appearances in consecutive seasons ending in the 2014-15 season he's played in 12, 3, 31, 13, 22 and then 20 games. I'd rather see him go now, wish him well and remember the good times from those two seasons where he was at his best than see him scapegoated for more mistakes. We wouldn't have got many takers for Forsyth but for me we dropped the ball letting Malone go to Millwall on loan as he is a good LB in this division who still has plenty to offer at both ends of the pitch. I'm not sure what the wage situation is between them but of the two I'd rather we got Malone back.

    A fit and proper owners test and an EFL disciplinary hearing are not even remotely comparable. 
    Alonso has been asked to provide proof of funds, seemingly a number of days ago. If he had provided it then we wouldn't be having this conversation as it would all be sorted. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on.
    Maybe he did sort it all out yesterday, but I doubt it. We'll find out soon enough.

    The deal not being completed. If he had everything in place the EFL tests would be done by now as it's clearly taking longer than expected. 
    The only reason I can deduce for this is that the EFL are actually doing their job properly for once Alonso can't produce the required funds or proof of funds.

    We stayed up on a technicality for off the pitch business. The players have been woeful this season. We should be relieved... not celebrating like we've achieved some sort of success. The only saving grace is that half of them are going back to their parent club or contract is expiring.
    A great opportunity to change the squads identity this summer.

    A pacy striker, a midfield with at least 15 goals in them and some subs who aren't all making their debut. A centre half that terrifies everyone wouldn't go amiss either.  That lots quite expensive but they need to think about the loan market now before it's depleted.
    A nice paddock for Forsyth to retire in as well.

    Exciting, attacking philosophy like under Burley and Steve Mac. See the new Manager going out to win games rather than merely contain the opposition. Actually look forward to watching the Rams again.
