I don't understand. They're such a model, well-run club? Mel Morris is such a prudent, honourable businessman and owner?Is this what sh*t sounds like when it hits a fan?
Couldnt agree more. All you hear in the media is how great MM is and "the Derby way"I don't understand. They're such a model, well-run club? Mel Morris is such a prudent, honourable businessman and owner?
Screw 'em. Hope they land in league 2.
Most sale contracts will have a clause to protect the buyer from this type of shenanigans ie. the ultimate cash price paid is reduced by any abnormal increase in creditors (which players/staff owed wages will be) between the time the sale is agreed and the actual completion.That's exactly what it is, owner is looking to sell and doesn't want to pay any more than he needs to. Now that the transfer is delaying longer than expected, he just won't pay up as there is zero return for that money.
It's become an in-joke on The Price of Football podcast that Derby are mentioned at least once every week. It's not hard to see why!
