Too true. Far more arsed about them than City. Also I hate to say it but regardless of Solskjaer, Ronaldo signing for Utd has thrown the car amongst the pigeons.

I think City's biggest role in the title race might well be what points they might take off Chelsea or ourselves. They just don't look motivated, and failing to buy a striker with their unlimited resources was just fucking weird.

Derby County staring into the abyss. One of the 12 founder members of the Football League, they're now £50m in debt if reports are to be believed and looking at a possible 24 point deduction which would surely condemn them to League One.

 

Any prospective owner of Derby County must plough more than £50million into the club just to clear their debts before spending a penny on the playing team, it's claimed as the full extent of the Rams' turmoil comes to light.

After years of financial woes, the Championship club entered administration on Friday night and will be handed a 12-point penalty by the EFL while a further nine points could be deducted due to financial irregularities within the club's accounts.

Derby owner Mel Morris has long sought a new owner and has attributed the Covid pandemic and the club's ongoing Financial Fair Play inquiry as factors behind his failure to sell up.

And The Athletic reports that any prospective buyer of the club will be expected to invest just over £50m just to clear the Rams' debts, with sources telling the outlet that the club's chances of liquidation are '50/50'.

It's claimed Derby's football creditors must be paid up to £10m, while an American private equity firm is owed a secured debt of £20m.

Sad story  for a great club like Derby.

Their fans can still relish Forest current states of affairs. Both may be going down to League One at this rate.

Going to be interesting to see how long he lasts there.

Normally one bad run and you are out the door but they would be crackers to get rid of him

He has a habit of falling out with people quite spectacularly, fingers crossed.

I was gutted when they sacked Lampard, he was in well over his head. 

 

Not as gutted as I'll be if Solskjaer ever gets the bullet though.
