Leeds Send Spy To Derby Training Session

I really do wonder if this will change attitudes somewhat in this country regarding management.

I agree it's great research but a hugely important aspect of management is keeping the troops happy. And when heads drop this type of analysis won't be what changes hearts and minds. 

That said he's a zany character and I love that. Definitely will be a refreshing addition to the premier league management tree and if he's as honest in interviews as he was at that press conference then even more so.

Zero fucks given to anyone else yet gave an hour long presentation to prove how he doesn't need to spy (even though he still did) which proves that he really cares about what others think... sorry, but that doesn't make sense.

Let's not pretend his methods have brought him a lot of success. He's been very shit for some time and been known more for under delivering than anything else. 

It's not a massive issue but it was still a shady and cheap thing to do. Him being a character being used as a defence isn't something that stands up.

You sound like you're in a cult now... and if you get into the Premier League, which seems very likely, then Bielsa is likely to have a mental breakdown and walk away if you don't do well.

You're being so negative mate. What's the gain to you to take the well earned wind away from a Leeds fans sails? They've had a shit run for how long now.? It's great that they love their manager.

I have nothing against Leeds and it is nice to see them doing well again. Thought it'd be great to see the likes of them and Nottingham Forest back in the Premier League for a long time. I'm just making the point that the spying and the presentation did the opposite of painting him in a good light like some are pretending and that his overall achievements aren't what people like to pretend they are. He is doing well now, haven't disputed that for a second.

Absolute mad lad. As if it is any different to studying tapes of games.

I was honestly surprised that watching another team train would even require hiding in bushes, nor that it would be an issue.

Leeds United: Bristol City owner Steve Lansdown wants points deduction for 'spying'

3 hours ago | Leeds United

Bristol City owner Steve Lansdown has called for Leeds to be deducted points after head coach Marcelo Bielsa admitted sending people to watch all of their rivals train.

A member of Leeds' staff was spotted 'spying' at Derby's training ground.

The English Football League and Football Association are investigating the incident.

"The only thing that makes sense if I'm honest is a points deduction," Lansdown told BBC Points West.

"They ought to seriously consider it but I don't think that will happen as I don't think the EFL will be strong enough to do something like that.

"A fine would go someway towards showing it's not acceptable. Whatever happens we mustn't condone it."

Bristol City's chief operating officer Mark Ashton is also on the EFL's board.

In an unscheduled news conference on Wednesday, Bielsa revealed he had other teams watched while training because he did not think it was "violating the norms".

Leeds, who visit Stoke on Saturday, are four points clear at the top of the Championship.

Lansdown added: "If he'd asked to send someone to watch our training we would have said no. And every other football club would say no. So why does he think it's acceptable to do it?

"However great a coach he is, it's the wrong thing to do. Poking around and skulking around a training ground is not part of the game."

Leeds beat Bristol City 2-0 at Elland Road in November - and the return game at Ashton Gate takes place on 9 March.

Apparently 11 Championship clubs have complained and written to EFL to ask for more severe punishment against Bielsa xDxDxD 

Ridiculous.

Its not even against the laws of the game is it? Just frowned upon. So why should he be punished for it.
