I really don't understand this uber-cryptic post. It is very puzzling. Please could you make it clearer? Who is this mysterious and dashing hero ?

One thing Kieran Maguire won't know is the terms under which Mel Morris loaned money to the club. His comment about MM possibly wanting (or even being able to demand) 25% back must be pure conjecture. 

I think he'll be aiming to get something back for PP and MF, but possibly not on his loans to the club - that is what he suggested very recently anyway.

I don't think the EFL are looking to deduct us points next season as well. In fact I thought the EFL wanted the outstanding issues resolved promptly.

We might end up with deductions next season due to new issues surrounding P&S or the insovancy not yet uncovered, Investigated and charged (i.e. not yet existing as a potential thing) or the above are not resolved.

The notion that the EFL just want to punish us over multiple seasons "to serve us right" is frankly balls.

I think you’re right in that the efl want to resolve (ie negotiate rather than formal process) but they want it on their terms.

The top brass at the efl probably feel more under pressure and accountable to the other championship chairmen than the temporary Derby administrators. They can essentially tell the administrators ‘it’s 9pts to make this go away’ or you can risk 12 or more going through DC.

The merit of the ‘charges’ will never see the light of day and will be hidden behind an opaque statement… presumably part of the agreement. The administrators barely care… as long as they can sell the club and recoup the debt. They aren’t going to fund a legal case that drags out for months.

The efl top brass get to placate the other chairmen, cosy their favour and keep in their roles. Derby can’t compete and we as fans suffer.

Maguire addressed Derby's recent appointment of administrators due to their financial difficulties, focusing on the club's debts.

In his words, “the estimates I've been provided range from low to mid-twenty [millions] of what is owed to the tax authorities.” 

Your football debts are valued at £10 million.

After paying the first £35 million, a quarter of the remaining obligations, estimated at £5 million to £10 million, must be paid.

“And finally Mel Morris. 

Mel Morris has now lent Derby County approximately £100 million. 

If he wants 25% of that, the administrators will have to sell Derby County for £60 million for a team in League One that

doesn't own its stadium. 

So where we are now is quite concerning.”

on top of which efl are looking to hit Derby with another load of points next year, when Derby are very likely to be in league one.

MM has apparently agreed to wipe off the debt  ?

It will be MSD, they need the club to keep trading/playing until they get their money back they have security already so it is no bug deal to them

Lending to the administrators is pretty safe because I think you rank ahead of everyone else including secured creditors. Could be MSD but more likely a bank. I’d guess that will be cheaper

Going on what the admins said re the debt. 
agreed who knows if MM changes his mind again 

if he had decided to pay all the debt I don’t think we’d be in administration. 
What Hoskin said I think was that MM had agree to waive all of his own claims against the club

Go on ...   when did he say this, what did he say ? 

Mel said he'd keep paying the clubs outgoings - after one of the failed takeovers? Can't remember.

But yeah whatever, Mel didn't say it and coudn't give a poo if the club goes to the wall, nowt to do with him. 😄
