Derby win again

Postby danielrees17 » Tue Jul 20, 2021 5:35 pm

Derby have been cleared to sign new players for the upcoming season after the EFL altered its rules due to "exceptional circumstances".

Derby are under an EFL transfer embargo but would ordinarily be able to sign free agents on 12-month contracts or make six-month loan signings if they have less than 23 players of a 'professional standing'.

Rams boss Wayne Rooney currently only has nine registered senior players, two of whom are goalkeepers.

However, with the definition of professional standing being that a player has made a single first-team appearance outside of the EFL Trophy, there was confusion as to where Derby stood, with a team of academy players having been fielded in last season's FA Cup third-round tie at Chorley after a coronavirus outbreak ruled out Rooney's entire first-team squad.

It's a joke how much derby have gotten away with without (Real) punishment
