Derby County remain in dire straits financially and desperate for new owners to be announced. The Championship club are in administration, having had points deducted at the beginning of the season, leaving them in a desperate search for new owners.

This has left them with no money to spend on incoming players, relying on free agents, while struggling to pay the wages.

The latest move in saving money is the cancellation of Phil Jagielka's contract, which was set to be extended to the end of the season.

A consortium fronted by former Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey, which features ex-Rams chairman Andy Appleby, have already submitted an offer, and the former Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is also believed to be a considered bidder.

Despite Rooney's efforts as manager, he has to overcome a massive 21-point deduction that the EFL imposed at the beginning of the season. But Derby remain at the foot of the Championship Table with 11 points from 7 wins and 11 draws.

Before some teary eyed, deluded dreamer thinks about it, NO!

Not the answer to our manager problems.

Just a thought, the dirty dozen got away Scot free without a fine or points deduction for breaking the rules, and signing an agreement, before putting it in writing to the Premier league.

Oh yes we heard it loud and clear, it was not the fans fault, the teams fault, or the Managers fault, it was the owners.

So can someone please tell me what the difference is with Derby, it’s not the fans, players or Managers fault, yet they had points deducted.
