Derby administration

EFL organised a meeting at 5pm and still going on. 

Only rumours but I'm hearing, from Derby fans, that they have until the 13th for someone to show definite proof of funds, for Derby to appear on the fixture list, and until EOD June 30th for a deal to go through. Apparently this is to let Ashley take over as the EFL are 'happy' he'll have the money. 

The rumour goes if they're still in admin by July 1st then it's hello AFC Derby in the Central league. If that does happen I wonder if Gillingham and Solihull will move up? 

Why Gillingham & Solihull?

Surely it’s either Gillingham & Oldham or Solihull & Mansfield.

Or if the first criteria is met (and Derby are on the fixture list) but not the second (they’re kicked out) it’ll just be a 23 team division.

John Percy writing that Quantuma are set to withdraw Kirchner's preferred bidder status and open up the bidding process again. 

Liam Rosenior now in the running to be next Blackpool manager.

Bury was an exception as the league had started when they were expelled so league one had to run with just 23 teams but the EFL changed the relegation process so just 3 went down. Because the season hasn't started yet the EFL could use the same notion and keep Gillingham in League one.  as they finished 4th bottom and only on goal difference. It's only hearsay about Solihull as they finished 2nd and lost the playoff but you're right in that Oldham could also be saved. Either way this would have a knock on effect for the pyramid and the EFL would probably leave that for the National League organisation (and FA) to sort out.

It opens up the door for a late but low bid to come in which the administrator probably would have to accept. Remember their responsibility is on behalf of the creditors and being thrown out the league is not conducive to that.

The tale I remember from 2010 is that Mandaric was more likely to prefer acquiring us out of admin. The fact that us WTID mob had come over to the Coop as reasonably convincing (ok proof of funds may have been a tad difficult) and thus show to MM he was not necessarily the shoe in new owner made him act sooner.

The point is that these discussions are often more a game of chess. Ashley in this case has an amount he will pay, he has zero passion for Derby but a lot of passion for a good business deal. So if Kirchner got the Club and paid full whack, Ashley ain't gonna cry about it. But can be lurking and ready if as it looks that intended deal falls at the last hurdle

Interesting that they have now released their season ticket prices. 

 

Very simplistic pricing too

Why would anyone buy a season ticket knowing they'll lose the lot (in all likelihood)

2 - 5yo's free!  Good call

Is it fuck, anyone taking 2-5 Yo's to the game needs to give their heads a shake.

Oh and for context when my eldest was 5 her brother was 2, so I know exactly what I'm talking about

Disagree.  I think it's a great idea.  Lots of mums and dads want to go to the match together, why should one stay at home to babysit?  Sure, the kids will end up watching Peppa Pig on an ipad but why not?

 

It also gets them the same seat for when they are old enough to have to pay.

 

Plus it also prepares them for a lifetime of misery watching Wednesday with the occasional sniff of the good times

I recall that we had free STs for young kids a while back.

I read that we stopped (amidst some moaning) because “prime” seats were being used only 2/3 times a season but weren’t able to be sold when not used.

Why do we get the same weird passive aggressive response every time someone disagrees with you? 

Let's be honest any Dad's (and it is Dad's - generally the weekend deadbeat types) taking their 2-5 year olds to the match are doing it because they want to go to the match themselves. The 2-5 year olds don't want to go. Had one sat across the aisle from us at the Cambridge game, asked to go at half time because "it was boring because we were obviously going to win". Either that or they sit their on a tablet/on Dad's phone, cos they're fucking bored and don't want to be there.

My lad's first game was when he was 5. And was instantly hooked.

To be fair the other option was remaining in Hoyland with his brothers/uncles*

His brothers and uncles didn't live in Hoyland... 😉

I see what you did there though.

Kirchner given til 5pm today 

Then what?  I'm lost as to how many extensions Derby have been given so it's a genuine question.

Is it a public holiday anywhere in the world today by any chance?  That might help them

Sorry guys it just didn't come through on time.

If it wasn't Saturday tomorrow i could have had it done first thing.

EFL

Oh dear that's sad, but don't worry there's no problem, can you have it done for Monday evening.

If not it will be okay at the end of the month.

Kirchner has lost his preferred bidder status and Quantuma have reopened the process and contacted two previous (unnamed) bidders to see if they're still interested. 

Athletic reporter Elias Burke is tweeting that Kirchner owes 800k in sponsorship money to NHL team Dallas Stars and he hasn't paid his company's wage bill for two months.

Kirchner officially withdraws out of buying Derby 

This is like when some washed up player who hasn't been in the news for a bit announces their retirement from international football even though it's years since they were last picked.

EFL quietly nudging Quantuma to take an Ashley deal if he puts one on the table. He doesn't have to pass the new owners test and they know he has the funds so they can approve the golden share movement quicker
