Meaningless PR.

That will be £50 million that covers, his bid for the club including Administrators fees, his bid for the stadium, the running costs for three years, and anything he wants to withdraw after the press release was issued.

Quite, saying he has £50m in a bank account means nothing more than, erm, he has £50m in a bank account.

Predictably the BBC headline on the fixtures being announced is:

Rooney's Derby host Oxford United in League One opener.

Though there should be a * , perhaps anybody who might take over the club should just rename it and have done with it.

Or rather " Rooney's Derby MAY host Oxford or Alfreton Town in league opener"

No idea why they are still messing around. Ashley has the money and obviously wants to get them to the Prem so he can sell it on again. Newcastle fans disliked him, but he ran a tight ship, and many fans struggle with that concept. His business is based in Derbyshire, and it is reported he is the richest man in Derbyshire. He is not buying it to close it now is he ? How can the incompetent administrators approve a bid from someone with no money when they have a  billionaire on their doorstep. Seemed more like Mel Morris wanted anyone but Ashely to own the club. 

Whilst I agree with the others '£50m lodged" is just PR , he is basically saying I can transfer the funds today. There are many many more worse owners a club could have. Mel Morris springs to mind.

They (The Administrators) don’ like him because he has said he will not pay their excessive fee, I’m starting to like the guy

Apologies if it has been covered and I missed it, but does anyone know who the mystery benefactor who paid for May’s wages was? Price of Football podcast comment today that said individual is known to them / journalists but not publicly named. 
Gave the money to CK but has since apparently asked for it back after it all fell through.

Perhaps it was Nixon himself. 😂

Good luck to him….honestly didn’t think it would get sorted.

Clowes secured the stadium on 17 June at which point Kirchner had been preferred bidder for something like 2 months.

Let's allow him a month to do due diligence. That brings into question why Quantuma indulged his claims that the cheque was in the post for so long.

What were their motives and why was he unable to transfer the money despite allegedly repeated attempts? Questions we will probably never get the answer to but it looks distinctly murky.

Still, it looks like Derby may be about to be taken over by a lifelong fan. Which went well last time.😉

Well at least that is one less Morris hook for the club . The only asset , as such , was the ground . That is a big step forward . The funding for the season is the next one , and getting out of admin . But a real step forward after so many false promises . Still think they should be looking at a deal with Ashley and share the burden.

5 weeks to get out of admin, or else there’s another points deduction isn’t there???

No further penalty.  Just get thrown out of the league if in Administration for 18 months.

Further sanctions will arise if:

1. Exit Administration with unpaid football creditors - expulsion

2. Exit Administration and unsecured creditors paid less than 25%, or less than 35% over three years - minus 15 points

3. Fail to pay wages before 30 June 2023 - 3 point penalty plus any other appropriate penalty for offence

4. Fail to meet FFP for years to 2022 - Who knows
