    Fair enough. I can negotiate down a little bit, but appreciate that shipping and tax might still be a stumbling block on this one.

    Sorry for the Daily Hail link (I hate myself already), but this article by Martin Samuel is probably the best summary of our situation on a national level so far and is a good read if you want to understand some of the many crazy things that have happened, that could see the end of DCFC in less than 2 weeks...

    The EFL have shown so much ineptitude over the past few years (probably more) and not just with this case. They aren't fit for purpose and their rulings and interpretations of their own rules have seen (and will see more) clubs going under.

    Thanks for the heads up @Glws

    Yeah, I’ve got some pairs of carbon track wheels for sale. All in great structural condition and available at a bargain price.

    Check them out in the post below (2 pairs left here)

    I'm hoping Big Dunc does well for the next few games while we sort our shit out.

    I'm just watching the replay of the House of Commons discussion from earlier today. It certainly seems that there is support behind us (Derby) and these legal actions don't seem to have much to stand on.

    There was a statement from an site owner of a Boro forum saying that Gibson had given them details of how they came up with the £45m figure and it was based on betting odds... Try to get that to hold up in a court of law.

    The language used by EFL and Boro statements isn't very professional at all and the EFL statement contradicts itself and earlier statements regarding us on several occasions. I'm hoping we get an update from our side soon and that this can all be over with.

    Just a minor matter of the East Midlands Derby this weekend. No big deal. Could be the last one ever, we could have no players left if all sold off for scrap value and we could have no manager if the media get their preferred candidate for the Toffee job...

    Them and the EFL have both issued statements in the last 24 hours that read like they're trying to save face with the claims and delays. The pressure is put on by fans and groups who are making themselves heard and the discussions has been raised in parliament today.

    Boro's claim is about our finances for a season where they lost 4 of their last 5 fixtures to reach the play-offs. No doubt if we weren't "cheating" they would've won all those matches, qualified for the play-offs and got promoted...

    They're claiming themselves as a football creditor (required to get 100% of money owed in a administration agreement), but they don't qualify as this at all in the letter of the law. The EFL's statement yesterday agreed that their own rules were vague and open to interpretation. They haven't got updated in line with UK insolvency laws that came into place in 2020.

    The EFL isn't fit for purpose. Boro money men need to wind their necks in and Wycombe are an unnecessary distraction.

    Whilst all this is going on, rumours of Rooney to Everton are gathering pace and no doubt we'll go from one problem to another.

    I've just emailed all riders and reopened entries with the new date. 13th March.

    Hopefully everyone already signed up can still make it and we have space for more sign ups now if people are interested.

    If he goes we’d be relegated but hopefully get enough money from Everton to survive the season.

    If he stays, we might just stay up and his stock would be so high that he could well be in line for a good job and not another relegation scrap.

    We’ve been here before with Lampard. Former club needs a manager and the obvious link is to a young rookie who is doing a good job elsewhere. Rooney seems to have a bit more about him than jumping ship at the first opportunity.
