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.
Couldnt agree more. All you hear in the media is how great MM is and "the Derby way"

L2 would fit them rather well.

Now Chiswick (proud to be a YIMBY)
Could it be that Morris doesn't want to pay his players now he knows he's off soon?


Derby County's takeover by the Deventio Holdings Group, owned by Sheikh Khaled, is "absolutely going ahead", says Rams chief executive Stephen Pearce.
The deal was set to go through last month but the delay means players have not been paid their December wages.
Pearce insists no problems have been raised by either party and expects the takeover to be confirmed "imminently".
"It's just a case of that final bit of the transfer going through," he told BBC Radio Derby.
"There are absolutely no problems that have been raised by either Mel [Morris, Derby owner] as the seller or Deventio Holdings Group in relation to this deal."


No problems with Rams takeover - Pearce

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!

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.
More likely they are just running out of cash and MM won’t put any more in. Risk for him that the whole deal collapses and he loses out on whatever might be coming to him from the sale.
