Lampard and Keith Andrews

Lampard, handled the post match interview very well. I’ve never seen him in such a good light.

Keith Andrews, have detested him this season, presenter asked if Bielsas’s position is untenable....WTF

Andrews...Bielsa needs a ban and taught what is allowed...

There is no specific rule as far as people are aware, immoral, yes and embarrassing for us I feel personally. But Ban??? Fcknoff

He’s adament we are not top 2 at all without 3-4 additions

It's not a big issue'

Speaking at his news conference on Friday, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino insisted the incident was not "a big deal".

The 46-year-old played under Leeds boss Bielsa at Newell's Old Boys, Espanyol and for Argentina and said the practice of watching opponents train has regularly been used in his homeland.

"I played for him I learned a lot from him - the good and not so good," Pochettino said.

"There is nothing wrong to try and find information and know a bit more about what the opponents are doing. That happened 30 years ago in Argentina. Not only Marcelo, all the managers were like this.

"Here maybe it is a little bit weird but in Argentina it happened. It is not a big issue or a big deal."

Training??? They actually need a football team first.
Total embarrassment to Derby County fc.

One thing I got from the interview with Lampard pre-match was that he was upset that it interrupted his training session when coppers came on to the pitch.

It was their own stupid fault for calling the cops!

Could easily have sent some club security bods to investigate and move the guy along, but they obviously wanted to make a big issue out of it.

I sense they wanted all the press coverage to unsettle our team. If the cops upset their preparations, they only have themselves to blame as far as I’m concerned.

Exactly, 43. They tried to use it to their own benefit. The issue should never have been made public and should have been dealt with behind the scenes.

Didn't work out for them though.

Spy should have taken one for the team and pulled out his todger claiming his love for Lampard and he would have been sectioned.

Lampard refused to use the pre-match 'spygate' saga as an excuse for his side's performance - but said "it has to be dealt with".

"For me, it's not right," he told BBC Radio 5 live. "I'm a big fan from afar of Bielsa, I've got his book at home in my front room, but that's slightly clouded it for me today.

"I've never heard of going to a training ground on your hands and knees with pliers trying to break into private land to watch.




from the BBC. what this pliers thing all about?

I'm sure every manager of note in history has had some bod go take a swatch at the oppo at some point for what ever reason. Getting caught out is laughable, being made out to be the only team ever to have this hanging over us is laughable.
This is a joke & if anything comes of this, then it is proof for all the paranoid fans to get their backs up as to the FA actually using us as a point of view.

“My work enables Jose to know exactly when a player from the opposition team is likely to be at his best or his weakest,” he explained. “I will travel to training grounds, often incognito, and look at our opponents’ mental and physical state before drawing my conclusions. Jose will leave nothing to chance.”
