Wayne Rooney only man emerging from Derby debacle in credit

  Wayne Rooney only man emerging from Derby debacle in credit Derby County's points deduction seems likely now to increase from 12 to 21, and the club still hasn't found a new buyer yet.This season has been a case of one step forward followed by several steps back for Derby County. The club’s collapse into administration brought a 12-point deduction, dropping the club to the bottom of the Championship table, and this unenviable position now looks likely to become effectively unmanageable with this week’s reports that they will have to accept a further nine-point deduction over their previous accounting practices.

A whole host of Derby County fans on Twitter have reacted furiously to find out their club could be liquidated.

The Daily Mail has revealed that potential buyers of the club are concerned that the Rams could face liquidation unless HMRC writes off £20m worth of debt taken up by former owner Mel Morris and this amount of debt is what’s putting off would-be investors, the same report claims.

A lot of Derby fans are furious on Twitter with this latest claim.

What have these Derby fans been saying?

“Terrifying reality.”

@AlEvans33

“There is only one person to blame and that is Mel Morris”

@jordie_DCFC_

“Heartbroken. Lost. Gutted. and nothing is even confirmed yet”

@joedcfcsmith15

“I still can’t fathom how or why Mel Morris hasn’t been arrested for non paying of taxes. He was the owner, signing the cheques and refusing to pay what he owed.”

@RamsFanatic1884

“Shameful , absolutely shameful.”

@Marsha1051

“Nothing has changed! This has always been the issue and my greatest fear. Praying HMRC are prepared to negotiate, something must be better than nothing (yes I understand all the comments about setting a precedent).”

This season is now certainly about damage limitation for Derby and getting things sorted off the pitch, as they’re 19 points from safety and will almost certainly be in League One next campaign, but if they can get in some new and competent owners, they could embark on a new dawn.
