A Leeds statement said: "Following comments made by Marcelo Bielsa on Friday, the club will look to work with our head coach and his staff to remind them of the integrity and honesty which are the foundations that Leeds United is built on." Oh my aching sides.

Ethically, its poor form, but is it actually breaking any FA/FL statute that can lead to formal action? I'm not sure it does


But Leeds United continue to be the gift that keeps on giving to all us haters...
not sure the FL would actually have rules covering people trying to gain access to other teams training facilitys with most of there 72 members probably using council/public owned land to train on so not really top of anyone's list of rule's to break.

think for Leeds it sounds bad but teams like Bournemouth/QPR have broken the debt rules and been promoted before they could be punished so in the championship it seems anything is acceptable to get you promoted.

Forest to appoint Martin O'Neill as their new manager later today.

No! It's a massive step back for the club and he will be sacked at the end of the season after Forest slip down the table.

Come back Aitor!

Watched a fair bit of Forest but whilst the results weren't consistent, they looked a team developing nicely under Karanka. In December some of the ball retention and types of goals scored were reflective of that

Now its a change of manager and change of style for that squad. Whilst O'Neill isn't finished its clear his best days are behind him. More worrying is Keane is to remain his assistant. Whilst I really like Keane as a personality it doesn't transcend to coaching & his frustrations of players with lesser ability are well known. - Could get messy

I hadn't realised Keane was going with him and it just makes a bad situation worse. Keane will do nothing but disrupt the players

We’ve never recovered from hiring Keane, at least he’s only an assistant for you so you might be okay...

The classic act of a very desperate club. The only thing they can do after the O'Neill/Keane experiment blows up is to dig up the corpses of Clough & Taylor...

answers on a postcard for that red card for Taylor, not a clue what he did.


it looked like he was laying on the floor and some Stanley players just decided to have a go, there keeper also got a red but didnt seem to do much.



at least the ref managed to spot the clear handball for the winner.
