Re: Next Season's Squad.

Gones just said Puscas and maybe one more :shock: :shock: :shock: Gotta be Ejaria on a permanent. Liverpool won't loan him and we probably need one more midfielder, I didn't see any creativity in the last game from our midfield. Gomes said it would be a loan. So unless Liverpool have budged on thei...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

Rumours Derby trying to hijack but Gomes has said he hopes to have positive news on him later today and maybe one other player in as well. That rumour came from a fake twitter account. SSN reporting Derby want 2 more players, a winger and ACM. but nothing surprises me in this game. Yeah, just saw w...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

Far too much worrying going on here about FFP and how good these signings will be. Firstly FFP is something that the club is fully aware of and we have to trust Howe on this-it's not as if he is new, inexperienced or a bullshitter. Secondly, the Gomes signings last season were all a success so we h...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Not impressed at all this. Whatever happened to the academy. What’s the point in having a top rated academy if you never let any of them play for the first team. They will play in the first team - what these deals mean is that they won't make up a large % of the first team - which make sense. Rinoh...

Re: Any more out the door?

McIntyre should 1000% stay. He looks good enough. Miazga is on loan. Morrison is a bit older. McIntyre may well be a first team player next season, and we should give him first team exposure this year to aid development. Oh he should stay, just not sure he'll be involved massively. He could possibl...

Re: Any more out the door?

Keep nova, loader, Olise, McIntyre around the team for experience. Others out on loan would be good. Nova has 1 year left on his deal, If he isn't playing, he isn't staying beyond that. His star is still high in the Netherlands, so we should sell if Puscas arrives as expected. The other 3 - Loader ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

So assuming Gomes sees the new signings as upgrades are we perhaps looking at a starting XI that looks like this when all fit: Rafael Yiadom Moore Miazga Blackett Rinohomota Pele Meite Boye Joao Puscas Almost a 4-2-3-1 formation with Joao playing a slightly withdrawn role and the 3 directly behing P...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

This is the one that feels a step too far and makes me nervous. But he sounds like he could be shit hot. I'm with you. 10 million? Makes my skin itchy that. I guess we have to trust the scouting department. Hopefully they know what we are doing. 5 years makes my skin crawl too. He shouldn't be on a...

Re: Are we screwed?

Right, time to say it. I'm really concerned by this Puscas rumour that looks true. Yesterday's business looked rational, but this just looks like tipping point. Rafael was a free and Pele was a loan, so they are sensible. The club may still be hoping to move on a couple of high earners, in particul...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Think there are some big numbers being banded around, when the reality is that they won’t be anything like it. One report seems to state that Joao is an initial £800k deal plus lots and lots of add ons. Spread all that over 4 years and it is may be £1m per year plus wages. Rafael is a Free transfer...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

There’s still space for the Academy lads but it’s round the fringes. Would still expect Rino, McIntyre, Olise, Loader and maybe Barrett to be getting some game time in, if not starting 11. Which is probably where they are at realistically right now Taking the fees out of it, looks like José is tryi...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Sanguine
sandman No drop in wages.

In fact an increase to £100k a week. All paid for by their sponsor.


Well played Derby!


Their chairman does seem to be very good at finding FFP loopholes. Fair play.

Re: Rumour - Puscas

I mean, a lot of risky signings you could say, but the one thing I truly trust Howe on is not to screw the club. If he sanctions these signings, I assume he's comfortable it fits with FFP. Most likely but I really don't see us signing 3 strikers, a defensive midfielder and a GK unless we are planni...

Wayne Rooney rumoured to be returning from MLS to join Derby :shock: :lol: If that’s correct surely that will finally break their FFP standing?

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Whether we pay much in cash for him this season is not that relevant. Our owners have cash. The accounting which is what matters for FFP, not the cash flows, is unaffected by the timings of the payments for Joao. If its £5m, its £5m divided by number of years of his contract, each year. If we have ...
