Wow! Talk about honesty! Detail of what he has done, how often and why he does it. Have to say the English translation I am reading doesn't seem very clear on some points. Still seem to be saying that he's not doing it for a tactical advantage but to give him information on expected team, formation and set piece tactics!

You must be watching the same link I am Spanish! He could refill the internet with all the data he has accumulated! Utterly mind blowing!

16 Jan 2019 17:52:44
Works his nuts off! They should give him a medal not a punishment.

16 Jan 2019 17:22:14
Well, so far, I gather he's admitted to having every team we've played watched, but only from public places. 😳.

He is saying its not illegal so he has used everything in his power to get an advantage. Fair play to him, it's down to the powers to veto close the loop hole. Well done to him for calling the press conference today to get it out the way before tomorrow's managers press conference so he can concentrate on the stoke match. Not done anything illegal, all down to interpretation and how EFL can find a rule to fit this .

16 Jan 2019 17:33:52
Not sure if anything said at the conference will help to clarify any of it or just muddy the waters. clearly it is on MC's mind so that is not a good thing and a distraction we can really do without at this point in the season.

16 Jan 2019 17:38:27
And now he going through spreadsheets of analysis carried out by watching ALL of Derby’s 51 games last season, analysis for each match takes 4 hours! He and his team did that for every opponent in the division! Incredible!

{Ed001's Note - I absolutely love Bielsa.}

16 Jan 2019 17:48:03
I feel ashamed to have to tell you all this.

Let’s talk about the analysis that Derby played this season.

They played 31 games. 49% they used a 4-3-3 system with No 8 on the right.

In 22% a 4-3-3- but with the No 8 on the left.

Same for the 4-2-1-3, with the no 8 on the right and left.

They also used structures, 3%, 2%, but they’re not significant.

Before the game we knew perfectly that they would use these kind of systems.

THE MAN IS SO DAMN THOROUGH! Other managers are going to be embarrassed by this.

16 Jan 2019 17:49:35
Looks like he is NOT resigning. Just telling everybody, and giving away, just how he does everything. Bet ALL the managers in the Championship are taking notes.

16 Jan 2019 17:53:00
Me too Ed! He is incredible!

{Ed001's Note - mad genius. He is the man who should be running the coaching courses, teaching up and coming coaches how to coach.}

16 Jan 2019 17:21:09
Stand firm lads Bielsa isn't resigning. he s just giving the EFL the full facts to make their witch hunt easier and to put it to bed. Good man, well managed!

Agree wex, better power point than TC.

Not a bad week for an 18 year old. Man of the match performance in a key game in front of an adoring Elland Road Crowd. Then a bit of interest in you from some also ran Premiership clubs like Man City, Spurs and Arsenal!

JC you are the messiah, and we know you're not going to be a very naughty boy! Stay with us and help take us back to the promised land and grow into a premiership role with the club you love. You'll be a legend!

hear pep has been told to pee off and hands off at any price! JC is our messiah MOT.

16 Jan 2019 17:40:02
I read that he's got the best contract that Leeds have ever given to an 18yo.

16 Jan 2019 16:27:02
Will Bielsa be hounded out of British football.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2019 16:51:45
I am worried he may say sod you all and go back home, i sincerely hope not but it don't sound good.

16 Jan 2019 17:04:20
This time next week it'll be forgotten about, be some other click bait for the press by then!

16 Jan 2019 17:14:50
Press conference on now, some kind of computer presentation with all of Bielsas team of staff in the room.

16 Jan 2019 17:18:27
Not resigning! To clarify spygate and keep seperate from tomorrow.

16 Jan 2019 17:22:50
Admits that “we have watched training sessions of all out opponents this year! ”.

16 Jan 2019 19:18:24
Think it’s fair to say we all stand united with our leader.

16 Jan 2019 16:24:19
Just heard Marcelo is giving a news conference at 17.00. Hope he has no dramatic announcement, except a signing.

Press conference called by Bielsa.

Daily Express are describing the 5pm press conference as an "emergency" one. I am uneased by this. I will be mighty p1ssed off if the pundits, EFL and FA have bullied him into resigning. Much happier if he bares his arse and tells em all to suck his South American chorizo sausage. Worried.

Thought from the outset, Fatty F was trying to play mind games and upset the Leeds Camp with his over reaction to a trivial scouting matter
Ably assisted by his friends and pundits in the media alongside the anti Leeds brigade and attention seekers. ( please see article below )
There's something rotten going on in football at the moment.

Ahead of the Championship game between Leeds and Derby on Friday night, Marcelo Bielsa admitted that he had sent an employee to observe Derby training on Thursday.

This person was spotted acting suspiciously and was quizzed by police, who decided no offence had been committed.

That night, a report appeared in the Daily Mirror that claimed the Leeds employee had been caught with "pliers and binoculars".

This tabloid story fuelled some, frankly, crazy rants from pundits who claimed that Leeds should be punished for actions that had amounted to cheating.

Derby manager Frank Lampard, who admitted his side were well beaten, repeated the claim about pliers after the game, saying "He was on hands and knees with pliers in hand, so the intention was there. "

But where has this come from?

Not from the police, who were the only people who had contact with the Leeds employee.

In response to questions from a Leeds fan on Wednesday, the Derby police "categorically" said they had disclosed no information about the person they had stopped - "to Derby County, Leeds United or anyone other than those within the police force".

They also repeated that no offence had been committed. This was made very clear in the tweets below.

This is serious stuff. The lies that are being spread about Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds need to stop.

Bielsa has admitted to sending someone to stand on public ground and watch a training session.

Saying that he intended to break through the fence with pliers is taking the allegation to a whole new level.

Where has Frank Lampard got this information from? Where did the Mirror get its story from?

Because it's not from the police, who have stated that on record.

And if Lampard is making allegations up or basing them on tabloid stories, then what he's doing is arguably worse than anything Bielsa has done.

The slurs have to stop. And if necessary Leeds have to stand up and threaten anyone who makes allegations that aren't true.

The hypocrisy over such a trivial matter is staggering.

A great post. Perhaps the press conference at 5pm will clarify the pliers angle. That part surprises me, particularly as the person concerned was clearly an easily identifiable Leeds united employee!
