Stan Collymore has stated that Derby County could be another Bury after claiming he has been told the ‘incredibly depressing tale of what’s going on’ at the club.
Was told of the incredibly depressing tale of what's going on inside Derby County.
Make no mistake, they could go. And by go I mean Bury go.
When will we learn there is another way.

The Rams have had well-documented off-field issues this season, with owner Mel Morris desperately looking to bring fresh investment into the club.
Whilst a deal to Sheikh Khaled fell through, Erik Alonso agreed to buy Derby earlier this month and that deal should be finalised once it’s approved by the EFL.
However, in a concerning twist, Collymore delivered a very bleak outlook of the Rams situation on Twitter as he called for fans to have more say in their clubs.
“Was told of the incredibly depressing tale of what’s going on inside Derby County. Make no mistake, they could go. And by go I mean Bury go. When will we learn there is another way. 51%.”
The immediate priority for all connected to the East Midlands outfit is to stay in the Championship. Wayne Rooney’s side are four points from safety but they are by no means safe with Rotherham having two games in hand, whilst they face a potentially decisive final day fixture with Sheffield Wednesday.
The ultimate 2021 Derby County quiz – Can you get 24/24 correct?
Firstly, it’s fair to say that Collymore isn’t the most popular man with Derby fans so they may not care much for his comments here, but they are worrying considering he has been involved in the game for some time as a player and journalist.
There are questions about Alonso’s deal that need to be answered, chiefly in who is actually putting up the money.
All that will come out in due course, and the team need to ensure they remain in the Championship or those worries will increase. Either way though, this is a very concerning update.
