You don't want the fans to see it of course. But Derby didn't get to this point overnight.They’ve been chucking money at trying to get into the premier league for the better part of a decade and not getting very far with it so wouldn’t be that surprising. You never want to see it though.
And they are now significantly in debt also to an American investment house with the stadium owned by Mel Morris up as security. The situation has been allowed to get so out of control there.Oh dear .
Not what Derby wanted to be ordered to do !
Probably to meet minimum TV requirements per side. The two lowest rating sides playing against each other.Our game vs Millwall in February has been selected for Sky coverage again. All 4 games against them since we have come back up have been selected for coverage. Wish they would stop trying to make it some kind of contrived rivalry - despite the famed incident I’ve never viewed them as anything other than another London team and a reasonably close game. QPR are far more of a relevant team to most I think.
Even more bizarre they keep picking it when they didn’t show the Watford game earlier in the season in favour of Swansea Wycombe of all games.
