WHO Poll
Q: 2022 Summer Transfer Window - How many 1st team players will we sign before August 6th
a. None as Sullivan will wait until the last week before he gets his scattergun out the cupboard
b. A couple of freebies paraded as superstars, usual hype to follow
c. I'm more optimistic as surely they know we need to strengthen, 3-4 with decent money spent.
d. Who gives a toss as we have a great squad already, I've already ordered the new replica kit, socks and all and can't wait to wear it at our first game, down the pub of course, I bleed claret & blue

It all seems to be going downhill for them

Re: Derby County

I don't think the EFL are considering further punishment. The question is, should the rest of the EFL have to pay Derby's debts in order to save them.

That's hardly fair, it's like asking the victims of a con to pay off the debts of the person who's swindled them.

Re: Derby County

Maybe put them in the third division but the club should survive

Re: Derby County

You can have sympathy for the fans and hope they survive without thinking they should be baled out.

Re: Derby County
At the end of the day we're all fans, if West ham went to the wall i'd be beyond devastated so you have to feel sorry fro the proper Derby fans it's not their fault. All they want to do like us any every other club is support their team. I hope the football club survives!

Re: Derby County
I like Derby. About 20 years ago, we were winning 5-0 at home and they brought quite a few fans with them. They scored and their fans went mental. I’ve got a lot of respect for them.

Yes, I believe he was a free transfer from Brighton. He didn’t play in many matches, but he played in some memorable ones, including, I think, the home win v Man Utd in 1974.

We had, arguably, two of our most underwhelming signings in our history playing in that particular match, Lutton and Alan Wooler. But, they did the business that day in a crucial 4-pointer.

Re: Derby County
Very good article by Martin Samuel in the mail today setting out why the case against Derby should be "dead in the water" and as always coating Sheff Utd's case against us .

Re: Derby County
The only time I went to Derby was I think 1973 1-1 and a goal by Bertie Lutton anyone remember him?

Re: Derby County
Great goal by Pop Robson what would he be worth today?

Re: Derby County
My first match against Derby was a Saturday afternoon winter-time match under the lights back in 1972, I think it was. We lost 1-2, but the highlight of the match was a ‘Pop’ overhead kick into their net.

I hated Derby in those days as we always seemed to lose against them.

Re: Derby County
First away game I went to as a kid was at the baseball ground, only been once as a grown up and we won 5-0 so I don’t mind Derby.

Shame this isn’t happening to Spurs, that really would be funny.

Re: Derby County
I don't mind Derby County. When they had that disasterous season last time in the Premiership, we played there when they were already pretty much doomed and won 5-0 - I remember most of their fans stayed til the final whistle and was quite impressed by that.

Re: Derby County
I remember the days of Clough and Peter Taylor at Derby. They were always in Division 1 back then as were Coventry.

Shame to see a a traditional top flight club in trouble, especially when they have shown some ambition and tried to push on which as a fan is what we all want from our owners.

I hope they figure it out and bounce back, I’ll be rooting for them.
Not sure the F A piling on helps anyone in this situation, seems pretty cunty and stupid.

Mike Oxsaw 3:29 Fri Jan 21
Re: Derby County
Derby County, because of what the achieved under & with Brian Clough & Peter Taylor, are still a fairly potent "brand".

Many of the older posters will recall with some amusement and admiration what he did/said.

He's gone, but the image still remains and I don't think it has been soiled by the more recent management appointments.

Could be a good long term investment, just for the name/history.

Re: Derby County
The issue that requires addressing is ownership and the legislation around it

Certainly been some idiotic owners but equally a nefarious element who have no ambition for their club beyond its failure and subsequent asset stripping

Set regulation at the start and they don’t bother

Re: Derby County
The EFL need rules to protect clubs from themselves .... or more truly to protect fans of clubs from idiot owners who destroy them then walk away not giving a shit.
But once a club is in trouble the EFL shouldnt be subsidising them and encouraging others to gamble.
If Derby go out of business and start again as Derby AFC several leagues down then so be it.
