Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to react after Derby announced that they will be holding an open training session for fans to come and watch.

What’s the story?

Well, you can see where this is going.

Back in 2019, Leeds were fined £200,000 after Marcelo Bielsa admitted to sending someone to spy on Derby while they trained.

Frank Lampard was famously furious, telling Bielsa that he didn’t respect the fair play rules, before saying it was bad sportsmanship.

Derby then added fuel to the fire by beating Leeds in the Play-Off semi-final, before the squad and Lampard celebrated by pretending to hold binoculars.

Now, instead of charging people £200,000, Derby are opening their training ground to the public for free – understandably, Leeds fans saw the funny side.

As Mauricio Pochettino said at the time, Bielsa sending someone to watch Derby train really wasn’t a big issue (BBC).

Most clubs nowadays post training ground footage on their social media feeds anyway, and the amount of video analysis available is unbelievable.

Clubs can gain access to individual running statistics, and basically every statistic under the sun if they wanted to – the data is so advanced.

In that respect, Leeds surely didn’t gain much from sending someone to watch Derby train through a fence, so was it really that big of a problem?

It was hardly the difference between a win and a loss for the Rams.

Nevertheless, they’re not Bielsa’s problem anymore, and it doesn’t look like they ever will be again given the current disparity between both sides.
