The above numbers are based on 5 years of transfers, which is why I mentioned 5 years. They haven't lost £95m on transfer fees since being in the Championship. And they have already moved some big earners off the books this year.True, but the wages will have eaten most if not all of that....and then some. But what happens 5 years ago is irrelevant from FFP anyway. It's a 3 year rolling window.
So at the end of this season when they tot up:
21/22 0 parachute payments
20/21 15mill pp
19/20 34mill pp
So that 49mill will offset some of the losses, but they've made huge losses in those 3 years. They lost 91.6mill in 20-21 alone. Although they've tried to right some off by devaluing their playing staff.....which they claim keeps them FFP clean, but that is accounting jiggery-pokery, and they may already be failing FFP, if not no promotion this season and they will be screwed, because they'll be facing that 34mill pp disappearing and massive debts. It's all or nothing for them now, and they have shown zero desire to change from that tactic.
Yes, they could be in trouble from an FFP standpoint, but Derby's plight is far beyond just FFP, they have the sort of problem that FFP was brought in to avoid. Stoke might get an embargo or points deduction for FFP but they won't be falling into debt or going into administration, their owners are too rich for that to happen.
