Stranded Derby have apparently been placed under a new embargo meaning they cannot register any players. Appears as part of this Phil Jagielka's contract has also been cancelled meaning he is not available tomorrow now (his deal ends next week).

As it stands, any player whose deal runs out this month - so Baldock would fall into this, will not have deals renewed and they cannot currently sign anyone else.

EFL asking for proof of funds to show they can complete the season - may mean Derby have to sell players as well to fund the rest of the season.


bit shit that isn't it? Kind of doing their best to make sure they go down


It is but the sale is dragging on, so I guess it is only right that they ensure they have enough money to get through to the end of the season as they will not want them to go bust in the season. Them staying up or not is not their concern after all but them going bust could impact the rest of the division.

Would actually help us though :wink:

I don't want Derby to go bust, I don't want any team to go bust but if them going bust meant the difference between survival and relegation I would take it every day.

For the record, for anyone unaware, if Derby go bust, their results would be expunged, we'd lose 1pt, Peterborough and Barnsley would lose 3pts.

Needle I'd take Jagielka :wink:

But yeah, that's shit. Was kind of hoping they'd pull off the great escape, although recent events might have meant at our expense.


You seem to be forgetting, he`s seen us play, he knows how shit we are.


Yes that's quite a problem

Yes defs particularly if Dann is now out for a bit


Jagielka would be a great signing, but he would stay up north and end up somewhere like Stoke City.

Lol, good call.

Yep it would be grim if Derby were liquidated. However it imperative we stay in this division. Ideally they survive but are unable to strengthen and nailed on for relegation.

If they were to go bust, would that mean just two teams relegated or four teams promoted in order to keep the championship at twenty four?

2 relegated from tier 2 and 3 promoted from tier 3 will maintain 24 at tier 2 next season that would then mean 3 relegated from tier 3 with 4 promoted from tier 4 and finally only 1 down from tier 4 with 2 promoted from tier 5.

The non league world would be where the “issue” is eventually resolved though it may mean one of the conference feeders plays with a team short.

However I think it is extremely unlikely that Derby will go bust before the end of the season.

Cardiff’s home form is shocking. I thought they would start pulling away from the bottom three but they are very much in the mix.

Dire result from Peterborough as well

We need to win there. And hope Derby either lose some players or something worse

Thankfully Cardiff are a bit useless. Is Moore injured for them still? Hope so

It`s hard not to grudgingly admire Derby, Rooney is doing a hell of a job there, wouldn't be surprised if he was at Everton next season.

yup, without the 21 point deduction, would be somewhere around tenth with 35 points from their scratch team…including Baldock

Off of bottom place today :shock:

Shows a few things

1) how it pays to have a manager who can motivate the players because they are clearly playing for their lives and are passionate for him

2) how mentally shit Barnsley are :lol:

West Brom are now feeling the Ron Gourley effect. Slowly sinking and falling behind the rest.
It's probably not the manager but the c*nt in the boardroom.
