Derby County: Championship club contact rivals Leeds United over training spy
Was he up a tree near the training ground?
They are the dirtiest club out there!!
Not exactly subtle....
The report says police spoke to a leeds employee OUTSIDE the training ground,NO damage to fencing, so what the **** he supposed to have done?
Would be funny if they got a points deduction for this
Oh yeeeesssss please
Always have been, likely always will be.
One of the very very very few MU chants that I like is the bald guy in a bar leading the 'we all hate leeds scum' song.
Don't understand what the fuss is , most clubs have staff from other clubs attending matches in advance of games "spying" on set pieces etc , this to me is just a variation on that .
Fair play I say. Spying in itself is not illegal......getting caught is the issue.
Not the sort of thing you can hand to third parties, you can't say they will care enough, and that's not to mention their evaluation criterion needing to match up.
Flying drones is an obvious problem so the hiring of Russian or American military satellite observation is the only real alternative - £££££.
Unless you can hire a mole in the organisation you are on your own and stuck with your own devices. #****happens
**** that off. It helps the ****.
Whoops, my bad
Won the internet today for me.
Bielsa is on Sky Sports talking about it now. He’s basically saying he doesn’t give a ****.
I loved that interview. Brutal honesty!
Nothing ever changes with that football club, moaning about Mendez last season aswell. Joke club, ******s.!!
Industrial espionage is nothing new, never going to go out of fashion.
Bielsa has admitted sending someone to the Derby training ground
I can’t believe how honest he was!
Lampard is furious! He mentioned there was someone in the bushes prior to the first game, but Derby didn’t investigate.
Fair play for being so honest! Biesla saying he’s been doing it since 2002!
Thing I can’t work out is why he’s been spying on Derby for so long?!
Going to be very interesting to see how 'spygate' turns out and how the FA handle this because it's unprecedented, which makes a points deduction straight away unlikely and Leeds get away with it. But I can see the rules changing off the back of this and possibly points deductions come into it in the future, if caught
Leeds just had a peno denied for offside, replay showed he was atleast 2 yards on lmao
Is there any actual rules against it, he wasnt trespassing, caused no damage etc and co-operated with police?
This is amusing. All the more so because Frank Lampard has been triggered.
I fail to see how this is any different to sending your chief scout to watch the opposition the the build up to a game.
Actually l'm not sure, as long as the Leeds employee was not trespassing, that there is any comeback whatsoever... I also doubt that Leeds are the only ones doing this... This guy broke the 11th commandment...
Exactly, I think that's why they will get away with it but the FA will put in rules to make it officially illegal so if you're caught spying then there's a more severe penalty to that
Perhaps all that they can be charged with is 'ungentlemanly behaviour' or 'bringing the game into disrepute' or something like that which will probably be just a slap on the wrist
Perhaps there are more out there doing it. Maybe Leeds' mistake was to get them to wear a Leeds United bobble hat and scarf and go 'ahhhh' every time a Derby player misplaced a pass
Not sure how I feel about this. While I don’t doubt other clubs have done it or similar, it is unsporting behaviour and leaves a bad taste.
I’d be furious if this happened to wolves to the point that training was interrupted, I wouldn’t be so bothered if it didn’t interrupt Nunos preparation. The fact the police were called out also makes this appear serious.
Intrigued to see what happens.
Wonder how their Chairman squares this with his comments after our game last season. Didn't he effectively call us cheats and talk about the need for a fair level playing field for all teams in the Championship?!
Wouldn’t be surprised if bringing the game into disrepute is considered.
Over the last few weeks on MM I've lost count the amount of clubs our friends on here apparently hate. Never been really like that myself, OK after a match, especially back in the good old days, 60s, 70s, after a punch up on the pitch or more often our players getting kicked to kingdom come, especially the likes of Waggy. No, the local opposition weren't always a hate target, even late 60s and Coventry who always seemed to scupper us, finishing second to them in the 2nd div rankled for a long time but, Leeds, for me have always been the one club I've despised, the likes of Revie I consider nothing but a crook and his arch accomplice diver Bremner just as bad. If anyone ever asks me the best game I ever witnessed the answer is always the same Wolves 2 Leeds 1 to stop them from winning the league. Leeds even now are the same, unable to clean up their act after so many years. Completely corrupt.
Why not just leave it and call it as something that comes with the territory?
Do we ned to be covering every little issue with laws and regulations?
Perhaps the onus needs to be completely with the clubs, if they need to be secretive and protective of their 'doings' it should be entirely their own responsibility to ensure adequate security to satisfy their position.
"We all hate Leeds and we all hate Leeds..."
He is trying to work out how they bottle it every February....
They could try... Me learned friends would have a field day, particularly if the individual was on a public road/footpath...
If it ain't Wolves....we hate them all!
Efl rule 3.4 section 2. Not sure of wording?
Each clubs when dealing with the league and other clubs shall behave with utmost good faith.
Apparently covers anything and everything,
Apart from accusing wolves of cheating by getting players on the cheap, to play in the championship
