    In this marvelously litigious world these days, I can forsee a circumstance where clubs like Derby County or Watford last year could get themselves into trouble, for being as rubbish as they are. Allegations of “not even trying” and “just on a cruise and collect” could be couched in legal mumbo by whichever team feels hardest done by at that moment.

    I think it’s true to say that the play-off winners are now using their Premiership season first and foremost as a financial exercise rather than a sporting one. Long gone are the days when Sunderland could establish the Premiership record for least points, simply on the back of being demonstrably incompetent and dreadful at football. Nowadays, the same team would probably win Young Businessmen of the Year.

    To say they are the worst ever top-flight team is pushing it I reckon. Remember Swindon from around 93-94? they were truly awful. What I think is fair to say is that Derby have made one of the worst starts by a team promoted and look a disorganised rabble at times at the back.
