I detest Leeds, hate the ground, the fans, the club, the  sock tabs and I hate bingo, but talk of a  points deduction is OTT unless your talking about Prince Phillip

I thought driving misdemeanors meant points going onto your licence. I know he is a royal but it shouldn't work the opposite way for Phil The Greek.

To be clear, I'm not in favour of a points deduction.

Though I don't buy the 'innocent abroad' explanation as Bielsa has admitted 'spying' on every opponent's training - so that will have been known to many members of the coaching staff and not all of them will have arrived with him, i.e. experienced people in the game here will have known that it was happening and that it would not be regarded as acceptable.

All that said, if clubs make a fuss whether prompted by a genuine sense of outrage or just to wind-up Dirty Leeds, then I have no problem with that!

As I said, Bielsa is reputed to be something of a ticking timebomb, so if he gets rattled and loses the plot, then great.

Not obsessed, honest ... but interested.

Details of the complaint by 11 Championship clubs about Bielsa and 'spygate' here: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/sport/championship-clubs-demand-details-of-leeds-spying-in-letter-obtained-by-the-times-xhpc2jgf7

Villa are not one of the clubs complaining. UTV

Is anyone like me enjoying watching Chelsea spiral out of control? It's bloody great.

Too bloody true.

My nephew is a plastic and any chance to wind him up is gratefully pounced upon.

You're not allowed to laugh at clubs above you in the pyramid apparently.

Fuck that.

I'll mock who I want whenever there's some decent amo. God knows I've been on the receiving end enough the last few years.

When considering football hierarchy nobody sympathized with us as we got totally battered at Stamford that fateful day. Our former American owner had stopped investing appropriately and our manager was an idiot. Fast forward to 2019 itís simply magnificent to see the mighty fall and now that Abramowich isnít as committed. Fuck Chelsea

A lot of press saying they'll go fro Frankie boy if Sarri is sacked.....that's a risky one.  Presumably he will then bring JT on board with him?

I always thought Terry and Lampard may team up again somewhere but I am not sure Terry would want to be Lampard's number two. SKY last night reckoned Zidane and Lampard were the favorites for the managers job. The only coach in history to win three consecutive Champions League titles or the bloke who is currently below the play off places with Derby.

12th in the Premier League  but a great decision but apparently we can never sack managers when we're mid table of the Championship because they need more time and it's fickle. They sacked a manager who won them the league title less than 12 months later ffs, they're a fucking joke.

Puel deserved to go for not bothering with the FA Cup even though his team were never in with the slightest chance of going down. Unambitious loser.

I remember posting that at the time. How can a team who surely won't get into Europe and also appear safe from relegation not give a toss about the FA cup? Especially as he was already being questioned and his job didn't seem safe at the time. A cup run could have saved him.
