He was apparently on £80k a week at Swansea. He won’t get close to that now but would be looking at £25k a week minimum. Not for us. No point in releasing the likes of Aluko and Baldock on big wages to bring in players on even bigger wages. It has to go the other way.

Would think he'll be snapped up by a lower PL side or Champ one with parachute payments, else go abroad.

Courtney is such a tool. He is now in no man's land. His contacts for Reading FC were Gunter and Mccleary and now he is exposed for what he is i.e. fraud.

Agreed. He can't live on being Robin Friday's son for ever.

No decision made about Derby yet so they are publishing an interchangeable fixture list today in case Wycombe are reinstated in the Championship.

Does this suggest that all the other clubs under soft embargo need not fear any other sanction?

I think Derby are accused of a bit more than slightly over spending aren’t they ?

Yep, they misrepresented the cost of their players on their published accounts. The only possible reason for doing this was to lower the paper liability.

Not sure if it's actually fraudulent in a legal sense (I imagine a points deduction would be the least of their worries if it was) but it was done in a way unacceptable to the EFL and purely to fudge the figures for FFP.

A retrospective points deduction at this stage would amuse most football fans.

It would certainly raise a giggle or two.

Say what you like about our owners but they haven't grossly misrepresented the value of assets and they haven't lied on the accounts.

Yep and for which Derby really should be heavily punished. I can’t see what Derby can do if the points deduction is applied in the next few weeks. They won’t have time to go through the Courts to challenge the decision.

Wasn't Rooney being paid off the books by a third party as well?

Basically Derby have been punished for the accounting irregularities, but now they need to supply restated financials using the correct accounting treatment for 2016, 2017 & 2018.

If following this, they are in breach in FFP rules they will probably get a points deduction as that is the standard punishment for a breach. Not much to appeal against really if the restated financials show this.

However I have also just read this:

2. It ordered the Club submit revised accounts for those years by 18 August 2021 using a policy for the amortisation of player registrations which complies both with the requirements of FRS 102 and with the P&S Rules.

So the EFL forget to say that Derby have to submit these accounts by a date which is more than a week after the start of the new season so what is the point of the interchangable fixture list with Wycombe....they will not be able to retrosectively apply a points deduction to last season....
