Brilliant.

Am I imagining it, or does Bielsa have form for this type of thing?

Somerset, apparently Poch has come out today to say it happens all the time in Argentina.

I love that mad ****er Beisela, made for a club like ours or Leeds.

Love the fact he has the manicured fat Frank rattled

Bielsa basically admitted he did today, with a 'so what!' kinda attitude.

Be interesting to see how the FA/EFL handle this one.

Leeds playing very good football. nice passing then getting players overlapping and firing crosses in.
reminds me of our 86 team with Ward putting crosses in for Cottee and Mcavennie.
Most of them only look about 18 as well.

I thought it was normal: hence 'fans' are banned from training grounds, and they have fences and stuff.
Should plant a line of trees around the site and pitches - an eco-friendly way to solve the problem.

I watched the interview and he came off very humble nigh on apologetic to me in the original Spanish. I don't think the translator did the best job.

Bielsa assumed full responsibility. He said that the mere fact that Lampard/Derby feel aggrieved is enough for him to realize he has acted in the wrong, regardless of how he personally perceives the legality/correctness of said action. Although he disagreed with Lampard about it being a transgression against 'Fair Play', he insisted that ultimately it's how Lampard/Derby have perceived it that is of most importance.

Why the **** were police called? Even worse, why did they then attend?

Bielsa’s words in response seem pretty Harry-esque to me. Can’t say I’m a fan of underhand cheats.

Was about to post the same thing, surely a waste of valuable police time? If your house gets burgled they haven't got the resources to send someone out to investigate, but they have time for this??

Unless I misunderstand the rules which is possible and this practice is illegal, then Bielsa is bang out of order, but even if it's not it's totally unsporting behaviour and make the fat pathetic **** at Derby right. I'd hate for our Club to be involved in it.

Is funny watching it all unfold from the outside though. :lol:

It was done purely to rattle and unsettle DCFC. No advantage could really be gained and no it isnt illegal.

Managers/scouts attend games all the time to check out the oppo.

Its great seeing Fronk get the bollock ache.

Dave WHU 1964 I totally agree. As a long-retired copper I can say that this was a civil matter at most unless there was some sort of a breach of the peace going on. Crikey they don't even attend burglaries anymore. The problem is that most of these calls are handled by civilian operators who obviously have never been out on the street and don't really know how to assess these situations. Derby County, oh yes send some coppers as they obviously have nothing better to do. Whole thing is pathetic IMO.

Don’t see this as a big deal at all. Perhaps a little sneaky but it’s the type of thing I’d expect clubs to do when scouting their upcoming opponents.

If Derby care that much they should have tighter security at training sessions.

Unless it was on private ground and the bloke was trespassing then there's nothing illegal about it, what a load of nonsense over nothing.

You can't tell me that Bielsa didn't know everything he needed to know with the amount of video footage around.

FF getting all wound up, priceless...

I'd be surprised if the FA can do sweet FA about it

iirc Moyes (and others) used to sit and watch Swansea train. I remember Laudrup complaining that's there was nothing he could do about it till they built a new training ground that wasnt open on 3 sides.
