This was posted on the sheep website regarding the debacle on Sunday

" Following persistent heavy snowfall in Derby overnight, the surrounding areas at Pride Park Stadium have been left in an unsafe condition for supporters, staff and officials."

Shortly afterwards this was posted

"Good morning #dcfcfans. The game is cancelled but we are still open 10am-4pm at Pride Park and would love to see you! "

Now I have not made this up and they are both straight lifts from the horses ( or sheeps ) mouth and surely it appears to me that it poses several assumptions.

1) DCFC were genuinely worried about the safety of the CARDIFF fans with the surrounding areas etc etc.

2) DCFC couldn't care less about the safety of their own fans as they are actively promoting the shop is open and are encouraging people to visit and battle through the unsafe conditions.

3) There was no issue with the surrounding areas,pitch or any other thing out of the book of 1001 amazing excuses and it was being used purely as an excuse to call off a match against a Cardiff side in excellent form against a Derby side in poor form with a lomg injury list. Allegedly : )_.
I know which one I would go for and quite frankly there is sufficient evidence to certainly ,imo, warrant the EFL looking at it.

There is a semi precedent here from some years ago when Middlesborough cried off against Blackburn citing injury issues ( no dusting of snow involved).

The end result was that Blackburn were awarded the game as the conclusion was that " Middlesborough could have reasonably expected to lose the match " hence the three points went to Blackburn.

Not exactly the same but similar in a few respects and the weight of the statement from the Police has to be a factor in this insofar as they lay the decision firmly at the clubs door.

Personally I can see nothing happening and it all being brushed (like the snow was ) under the carpet but fingers crossed.

Something might happen creepy as like I said on the banter site I live only 6 miles from pride park and there wasn't an inch of snow on the ground and even my road outside was clear.
The police and the safety advisory group should have been informed about the situation around the ground and all three parties should then have made a decision,the club called the game off and only then did they inform the police and SAG,which is against the rules.
The police and SAG are both saying the club acted alone in calling the game off,so therefore should be punished.

I live in hope that the FA do nothing and then on last day of the season drop Derby 5 points (after they already thought they were in playoffs) which leaves them in 7th missing out to Bristol or Boro or Preston on goal difference! That would be quite perfect!

We all have something to say about him now and then but let's get it right it's Ben OSBORN OK !

Having established that flies follow the smell not the colour of the shirt can we have an acknowledgement from our doubting fans that
1.We now have a commanding keeper?
2. We have signed a quality centre half?
3. We have have addressed our weak midfield?
4. The fat boy and Lolley are a class act?
5.We now have a manager that knows more than the Fawaz appointments and is moving us forward at long lasr?
6. We will finish in the top half this season?
Come on boys glass now half full. Onwards and upwards

9 wins 2 draws and 1 defeat takes us into sixth place to pip the dirty sheep into the last play off place! Mathematically possible! We can but dream.

n 2016-17, Karanka led Middlesbrough to the last eight of the FA Cup, where they were eliminated by Manchester City. He was sacked on 16 March 2017, with the team three points from top-flight safety and without a league win in the new year; while their defence was the fifth-best in the division, their attack was the worst with just 19 goals from 27 games, and he had disagreements with players, fans and the board;[26] club and manager parted ways by mutual consent, as the latter believed he could take the team no further. [27]

He's come here and fell put with players straight away and you can add Eric to that list now.
It's not going to last I'm afraid and is going to be a very costly mistake with all his enterage.
Greeks should have stood by warbo or Brazil till the summer then made a decision,they might now have to make another one very shortly.

11 Feb 2018 14:27:18
People around us yesterday were taking bets not whether Aranka will be sacked, but when! Will this madness never end?

12 Feb 2018 20:32:39
What's this about Eric not fitting in with AK's plans?

He went 3 at the back at half time so Eric was bound to be the guy to make way!

12 Feb 2018 23:02:30
Why not take fox off then?
And go three at the back ?
We're you there red ? Because you would never know we were playing that or any other system.
It was a shambles with no system,No organisation and no conviction

13 Feb 2018 21:01:33
Because Fox not Lichaj can play as a centre half?

Charlie Black

You missed the bit from wiki about AK joining Boro mid season and getting them to the playoffs followed by promotion the following year!

Its common knowledge that Gibson did not provide a decent transfer kitty for the Premiership which is why they struggled. Notwithstanding he left Karanka is held in very high regard on Teeside

13 Feb 2018 22:18:36
Gibson has backed every manager .
Too much sometimes.
Karanka tried to take him on and lost
That's all

14 Feb 2018 12:27:43
My you do have a downer on Karanka?

Net spend on his watch in Premiership £20m, followed by £15m for one player Britt in the Championship.

Hardly constitutes backing on this occasion?

10 Feb 2018 16:37:31
Lolley on at last hopefully he can pop up with a late goal or two 😄

Upper BC Stand season ticket Seat P45 assigned to FF79 please sign on tomorrow as AK is only retaining those who believe? No negative vibes permitted during match days!

I see Neil Harris has called Rochdale fans disgraceful. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Bloody hypocrite.

Spurs cannot wait to go to Rochdale and fall over in the box?
