Daily Mail:

”We understand the EFL found no grounds to deny Alonso as part of their owners and directors test, had he produced the money to do the deal. They asked him to deposit £35million in a holding account three weeks ago but have heard nothing since.

There were also concerns within the EFL about Alonso’s business plan and there were doubts over the credibility of the takeover, especially as the League were unable to determine if he even had a lawyer.”

I think that sums up the EFL fit and proper persons test. Awful.

To have your pants pulled down publicly once is unfortunate, twice is just incompetence. 

This is the third time, remember owd Henry Gabay as well

Before we all get too excited it's worth remembering that Percy is the club's preferred outlet. It's completely plausible that they have placed this story 'annonimously' in order to get Alonso to complete the deal.

Didnt someone have that theory regarding the Sheikh?!

If only he had £millions to deposit from a huge cocaine smuggling empire the EFL would have approved him.

Go for it.

I had Maxwell's office number back in the day.

I'd be impressed, if you'd had Maxwell's house number.

Still, I don't suppose the Rich Blend with mere supporters unless necessary, and then it's often too latte.

I was going to make a joke about Kopi Luwak coffee, but it's crap.

Gabay was a money lender not a potential new owner, despite initial reports, it's the 2 takeovers that have been agreed/announced (BZI & Alonso).

If that is true forcing a prospective  buyer to place money in what is known as an escrow account is a smart move, praise where praise is due

This is what worries me. We were always told that Derby would be sold 'ONLY' if it was in the best interests of the club, surely that requires a substantial level of due diligence. Or is it now a case of 'anyone will do'.

I just cant see a sale would have fell through 3 times if proper due diligence had been done on the prospective buyers to ensure they were the best fit for us.

It really concerns me who we could end up with, its almost like we have just been put up for sale on eBay.

Yes I do remember when Mel actually used to give interviews, he definitely stated that we were to be sold only if it's to someone who was 'safe hands' and could take the club forwards.

He also mocked some of the many chancers that had shown interest - how ironic !!
