    I find it even more laughable that fans sit there putting up with it

    WBA have been an abject failure again in the premier league (Norwich will be straight back down as well) but here you go have 300 million quid, spend what you like on wages/player fees... Derby and Sheff Weds are forced to do dodgy stadium sales to try and remain even remotely fecking competitive and its hounding until they get them ffs...

    Makes my blood boil

    The appeal is about the amortisation methodology used. We'd used it for half a dozen seasons prior to the one they charged us on. There were no rule changes on it. There were no changes in intertretation given to clubs. DCFC was not informed beforehand that the EFL no longer found it unacceptable for whatever reason. They can't retrospectively change that. The appeal ought to be successful because the Law is on Derby's side.

    That last bit? You seem to be suggesting that they are now dreaming up new charges because they couldn't make the old ones stick. ..... and then people say the EFL doesn't have a down on DCFC/Mel. If they do bring those further charges after losing the appeal they will get the fans on their backs, not that that would bother them............

    Who says, they wouldn't stick?
    The appeal didn't go the way you thought.

    As I said, it aint over till the fat Rooney sings and they have your card marked.

    Yawn! The Daily Mail says...The Sun says...Nixon says...Collymore says...on and on and on and on you go.
    How about you concentrate on your own club and leave ours to us?

    Oh I do apologise. I never realised the antics of DCFC were a closed shop?
    FFP. diddling the books, dodgy take overs dont effect anyone else do they?

    It may make you feel uncomfortable facing up to it. But it's real, no matter where it is printed.
    Be an ostrich if you wish, I could guide you to appropriate sand pit, but I know the local cats use it as well.

    Gotta say I approve of cross-club trolling, especially the soap opera that was the DCFC/SW thread on the LTLF forum on Saturday, twice in a year Forest fans have nearly made me laugh myself to death with their shattered dreams

    Well they don’t affect you, you just like sh1t stirring as far as DCFC is concerned. If you were a Rotherham or a Wednesday fan I could understand it more...but you just seem obsessed with Derby and having been disappointed on Saturday you don’t want to let it go.

    ‘Diddling the books, dodgy take overs’...I wouldn’t know, but I’d be a bit more careful with those allegations if I were you.

    ‘Be an ostrich if you wish’...no head in the sand from me, but if you read the DT article you’ll see Steve Nicholson saying that a points deduction is very unlikely as he understands it.

    Ostriches don't bury their heads in the sand. Just saying

    Despite the **** stirring by the forest fan and certain media outlets desperate to create stories, these doubts were always likely to be be cast when our current ownership have made such a pigs ear of things so far.

    As for Barnsley and Forest fans taking some sort of moral high ground, don't sit to comfy up there because they'll be coming for you next

    We've been hounded over some fictious player valuations "ruling", it doesn't exist only in la la land

    We've been gone after to put us out of business simple as that, the new world order
