What will the punishment be?

Sad that on a day when Leeds were honouring Albert Johanneson and delivered on the pitch with their best performance since August, it was overshadowed by the faux outrage from Sky Sports and their drones. Jenas on the BBC calling for a points deduction, Talk Sport accusing us of cheating. The reaction from the media has been pathetic - the same media that took a picture of Steve Holland holding the England team sheet during a training session and released it to the world during the World Cup.

What's your gut feeling on how the FA or FL will play this? He's not broken any rules but they like to set examples and we saw with Jansson's ban that we get different treatment.
A warning or fine?
A ban for Bielsa (touchline or worse)?
Points deduction?

Considering it's not against the rules or law, I'd be aggrieved if it was anything more than a warning.

How can the FA look at the incident when it is clear that the referee saw it and took no action? Retrospective reviews are only done when referee has not seen the incident,

Most Derby fans are just looking upon the whole episode with wry amusement. Be fair to us, the media have tried to whip this up, not without a degree of xenophobia toward your manager.

The location of the training ground in the green belt means that you would have to have made a substantial effort to get round the back to view the training pitches. Anyone in those areas would have been clocked as being suspicious

I think it's funny.

What is funny, is played 2, lost 2, scored 1, against 6, oops

They will make Bielsa sit on the naughty step instead of his bucket, and make him think about what he's done.

It's outrageous. Someone has been in a public place, watching someone training footy. My oh my.

At worst a fine or touch line ban

More concerned about the possible 3 game ban BPF could be getting.

I don’t think so as ref was looking right at it. That said he still may say he didn’t see it! AR should have seen it thoug!

The Debate on SS1 after the game made a great point.

League 1+2 clubs train on what are basically parks with a handful of people watching all of the time, it definitely happens.

So are no representatives of clubs allowed to go watch the opposition play in games before your own team play them ?. Maybe they are all hurting because it's taken an Argentine to show them how to play football. I bet Southgate picked up some tips whilst watching Leeds play.

Games are not training.

It’s still a ridiculous reaction.

Danny Murphy was saying that you used to get quite a lot of people watching at Liverpool training.

It's stuff and nonsense but this is Leeds United and the authorities rarely miss an opportunity to chastise the club. The EFL with Shaun Harvey in situ must be rubbing their hands with glee.....

I'm not aware that any written rule has been breached but clearly the moral compass will be going haywire......

I think there'll be a warning with a suspended sentence of some sort. Then the rule book will be updated to accommodate "misdemeanours" such as these.

That said, it's not a new practice, I'm not entirely sure what advantages we'll pick up from watching someone else's training methods and/or set piece scenarios.

It's all a bit silly but being Leeds United.......
