  1. Looks like they need new ground staff as well, that’s not an £81 million pitch!
  2. Except for an optic in a Derby pub!
  3. The referee caused WR and DC a big problem on Saturday. The optics could have been "You fought out a draw despite unfairly losing a player, how unlucky." They are now "You lost to one of the two teams below you, and you should have had a player sent off as well, how rubbish."
  4. The ACV position is a red herring. If an ACV is to be sold then the 'community' have a couple of months to buy it first, like to see that happening . The local council also need to take the existence of an ACV ruling into account when granting planning permission or they can compulsorily purchase the site (at it's market value). That is it. Neither Gabay nor Dell want the properties, they will simply want their money back along with interest and any default interest, fees and costs. Worst case scenario they will simply stop DCFC playing at the ground and using the training
  5. £2 million a year for 2 1/2 years is £5 million, £5 million for six months is £2.5 million. What would you take? He was never going to get another playing contract at Derby or anywhere else on his previous income or anything approaching it. Like everyone else I am only guessing, but I do not think that the only possible explanation is that the takeover has been sorted.
  6. Or just a cash flow thing. We will pay you £2 million (guess) a year as a manager guaranteed for 2 1/2 years, and you tear up your playing contract at £5 million a year now, which was expiring at the end of this season. Morris saves himself £10,000 a week plus costs.
  7. In any season if a club returns a profit for FFP purposes there are no further tests. So any club which makes an FFP profit of £1 in 2022 will automatically meet FFP regardless of performance in previous years.
  8. If any of the Derby County companies go into administration then the secured lenders (Gabay and Dell) can recover against any land and buildings held by any of the Derby County companies. So the secured lenders hold a noose around Derby's neck, not the other way around as suggested. I doubt that the ground would be redeveloped into housing. Pride Park as a whole really is not that sort of place.
  9. I think that the big question is why would anyone buy Derby County at this time? No guarantee of Championship football next year. No final resolution of FFP issues with EFL, no resolution of Dell investment in two clubs, vast cash investment to pay wages .... potentail further EFL action in respect of non-payment of wages ... A buyout from administration will also need to deal with the assets charged to the secured lenders, the 'crook fron Switzerland' and Dell.
  10. I love data and data manipulation. Two things you always need to bear in mind: 1. Data is the plural of a datum 2. To paraphrase Einstein - Not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that can be counted counts. 3. xG is rubbish, see above.
  11. See https://t.co/CypVDWQrEk Needs a wider audience!

    It's a straight comparison of 85/86 which is approximately 1 and 8/3 which is approximately 3. I suspect that you were blinded by the figures for Asian individuals who, using the same figures, of 3/8 are about a third as likely to be killed as white individuals and 1/9 as likely to be killed as black individuals. The overal balance for white individuals masks the inequity elsewhere.

    Did you look at the stats you quote? These show the death rate of white individuals is about 1/3 of the death rate of black individuals.
  14. I would take the line that these are the submitted accounts for 2018 AP and so they fall within regulation 1.1.3 of the FFP regulations. Accounts can be restated where there is a material omission or mis-statement in those accounts, materiality is relevant but the stadium transfer is clearly material. FRS 102 states that an error that needs accounts to be restaed arise as follows: ‘Omissions from, and misstatements in, the entity’s financial statements for one or more prior periods arising from a failure to use, or misuse of, reliable information that: (a) Was available wh
  15. Nope 6th round. There is about a 1 in 8 chance that City could be in a set of teams not containing a PL team in the 4th and 5th round draws, and about a 2% chance that the set will only contain teams below City in the league.
  16. However with all the above said and done with a favourable draw there is a 6th round place open for a non PL team or two ....
  17. Disappointed that you failed to mention the £90 million odd in Parachute Payments. I'd bet you a pint that that has more to do with your perceived quality of the loan signings than the staff allegedly not doing their job properly.
  18. So where is your evidence that we are not performing off the field in the top six of the championship? I'm not saying that we are, just that there is no evidence.
  19. I think that this sums up one of the problems with the analysis. For the vast majority of his time at the club he has been playing, as have all the other players in a top half team. Has the quality of the coaching meant that the team is playing well above the quality of individual members? (no I don't exepct any sensible responses to that question!) Whether or not the recruitment is good, average or bad is also a relative one. I'd suggest that there are a lot of clubs out there with a performance which is far worse.
  20. There is an argument for Sheffield Wednesday, which I particularly like, which goes along the lines of - You have claimed the ‘profit’ in a set of accounts - what provision in the regulations allow you to claim it in another period?
  21. My initial view on Millwall is actually how little impact Covid-19 has had on their results. Probably because they have relatively low commercial income and 10 months of the period including Christmas had already passed.
  22. Given that the club is not up for sale those of you who don’t like things have two choices - buy the club , oh you need £13 million a year in income (after tax if that makes a difference) to keep the team going plus all the additional costs for The Academy, the ladies team, and community work, and all the new assets, or go support someone else - Torquay are doing well at the moment. Although I hear they have American owners and an even stricter budget than we have.
  23. Anything which contains the statement: "An integral part of the analysis is to calculate a Carteret Rating for every football player, which rates and values a player’s contribution to his team winning football matches. It is incredibly accurate at predicting a player’s capabilities." Is marketing puff and all 'Round Objects'. For example look at the sales for Birmingham City netting a gain of £16 million rated as average business and Stoke City netting a gain of £4.5 million rated as good business. You could also add Huddersfield, Nottingham Forest, Swansea and Watford to the
  24. the cost of Hughton was the £60 million he wanted for transfer fees plus wages, with him in complete control. That's why he didn't get the job.
  25. Blame a young Finnish lady many many moons ago. I think that Estonian has the same additional letters as Finnish, plus a few more they add in to the party. Definitely not any umlauts or any other marking to differentiate pronunciations of the original letter.
