"Having an owner like Mel Morris is an absolute dream. Local bloke,loves the club and does what ever the **** he likes"

now they cant stop being abusive to Boro, Boro fans and Steve Gibson - they cheated every team, not just Boro and Wycombe

the stuff theyre making up on twitter is just wrong on many levels, theyre screaming that steve gibson is on the board of the EFL, he isnt, Neil Bauser is, he replaced the Derby stooge who had to stand down for being part of the Mel Morris do what they like project.

one bloke is screaming about the Ziguer deal with Liverpool apparently we 'have form' - we certainly do if having form means standing up for honesty, fair play and having integrity.

Haha they can’t even get their complaints consistent. I saw one bleating on that the Ziege case should be disregarded. Pure desperation.

Derby fan at work started having a go at me on a Teams call at 8am this morning. Saying how I need to have a word with Gibson and how he's responsible for everything that's going on with them :LOL:🤷‍♂️

I've never met this lad, but spoken to him every week for nearly 2 years. Its bizarre this collective view they all have.

I do think the game next month could be a bit naughty with some of their fans, if the authorities aren't all over the situation.
You should send him a reply

so how’d you like to Pay
cash or cheque ???

and a quick look at that JudeKelf and of course she thinks the EFL are being mean and Derby should be allow to be taken over now. It's hypocrisy and entitlement by many derby fans

Derby's administrators could seek a legal ruling on their compensation battles with Middlesbrough and Wycombe if the Football League don't step back from their current position of the cases being regarded as football debts, BBC Sport understands.

Boro and Wycombe are both pursuing Derby for what they regard as a loss of income due to the troubled Championship club's financial rule breaches.
It is not felt within Pride Park there is much chance of the claims being successful.

However, the mere fact they exist is preventing the administrators from naming a preferred bidder for the club, which they said on Christmas Eve was "imminent".

It is understood none of the three current interested parties are willing to commit to buying the club, knowing they could be facing a liability running into millions of pounds.

I do think once a club elects to go into Administration players should be allowed to negotiate contracts and the EFL should appoint an arbitration committee to set transfer fees for them.

And Derby fans quoting the Ziege case as an example of our bad behaviour should beware. We won that one.

It's sad to see any football club in this position. But Derby fans are making it hard for anyone to sympathise with them. They cheated, they got caught, they're in this position because they cheated rules that were put in place to stop clubs ending up at risk of going out of business. They were happy to shout "we're Derby, we do what we want" when times were good, especially as people (mainly Gibson) were pointing out that things looked very dodgy.

If they want to point their fingers at the culprit for them being in this state, point at Mel Morris and the FA for allowing it to go on this long.

I wouldn't be surprised if some idiots try running on the pitch or trying to disrupt the game at the Riverside. Could be a day that turns really nasty, especially if we hammer them.

I just hope that the takeover is completed before they go under, but I'd prefer if that was after having sold their remaining best players.

I'm not looking forward to playing them because there is guaranteed to be bothered regardless of the result.

Exactly, quoting the Ziege case is meant to do what exactly? How is that meant to put us in a bad light? We were the victim of tapping up, we weren't the ones who behaved badly. It's like some bizarre scattergun approach to throwing facts out and thinking they are somehow linked and will stick

Judging by the replies to (now deleted) twitter posts, it seems like they searched for court cases involving Middlesbrough. Found stories about the Ziege case and though we must be in the wrong because they hate us.

I randomly learned by searching on Twitter that it was Rafa Benitez who signed Jamie Pollock from us for some Spanish side... Which was a surprise.

So what is Steve Gibsons end game here?

Derby fans seem to think he's out to finish Derby off once for all and that's the basis of their emotive argument .. I can't imagine that would be SGs motive and he probably wouldn't let happen if it turns out that he WAS the hangman

So what's his game?

There isn't a precedent for claiming compo from a club who's breached FFP so there's no guarentee of success if it ended up in the courts (and especially if Derby had already gone bust by that time)

And, according to the Derby County "legal representatives" on Twitter - he hasn't got a leg to stand on anyway ..

So .. can anybody explain his game and what his strategy is and what do you think would be a result for him?

So you think Gibson is doing it on a 'whimp'? - Don't be daft, he'll have had top legal advice - the Derby county reps are always going to say there's no legal case, otherwise they are basically admitting guilt before/if it goes to a court

So derby don't believe there is a case but the three potential buyers clearly.
