    Given Derby got away with it, I fully expect a lot of clubs to do similar in the future. Probably a wait and see this season in regards to FFP - the pro-rata 13m might get waived due to Coronavirus, but next season it's unlikely to be and so you'll have a lot of clubs with fewer fans in (as not everyone will be vaccinated/feel comfortable going to a stadium) and so the pressure to raise revenue will be large.
    Villa and Sheff Wed also sold their stadia to their owners. In the formers case it helped them hang on to Jack Grealish and achieve promotion. It wasn't a case of getting away with it because the EFL relaxed the rules when they changed the P&S regulations in 2016. Prior to that profit from the sale of stadia was excluded. Villa, Sheff W and Derby did nothing wrong. If the EFL didn't want them to sell fixed assets to raise cash they shouldn't have changed the rules. Why did the EFL relax the rules? My best guess is that it was incompetence, but who knows.

    Yet another demonstration that all FFP/P&S rules have achieved so far is a multi million pound windfall for all the lawyers and accountants who've dealt with the extra bureaucracy.

    Derbys game plan seems to be knock the ball about between the 2 CBs and the keeper for 5 mins before either hoofing the ball long into touch or it get pinched by the other team and you get broke on. Cardiff should be 2-3 up by now.

    Cardiff 27% possession, 11 shots on target, 4 goals.

    Derby's aimless and impotent keep ball approach in full effect.

    I watched the 1st half before we kicked off and that was basically it! They knocked the ball between the back 3 for a bit on the edge of their own box without going anywhere Cardiff pinched it and scored. And repeat.

    Looks like Mel is looking to sell off what he can. Takeover still going through?

    Cheeky bid to puss them off? I don't want him, as I don't think he's that good.

    Aye... over rated in my opinion. He's only had one decent game for the 5haggers.

    Makes sense.

    Cardiff in great form, favourites to win, and not an immediate rival for Derby.

    Coventry in mixed form, not favourites to win, and an immediate rival for Derby.

    If they beat Coventry this weekend then it was the right move for them to sacrifice the Cardiff game.

    Great thinking from Rooney, throw away a game in a league where anybody can beat anybody and lose the corresponding fixture.
