Soccer pundit Keith Andrews has had a change of heart over Spygate following Bielsa's impromptu press conference on Wednesday evening!

Has he changed his mind about Pontus not being a very good defender yet?

Re: Well Frankie.....

Interesting that Derby's 3 best players (Mount, Tomori and Wilson) are all loanees. Frank having to get favours in from his mates. Whilst at Leeds Bielsa improves our players so much that they outshine the loanees. We've been in that position before and come the end of the season you have to start ...

You had us worried for a bit there Marcelo

http://www.motforum.com/images/th/marcelo_press1.png It occurred to me that even though we as Leeds fans have become accustomed to expecting the worst - and rightly so – last night’s trepidation was something I haven't felt in a long time. It's something we were all feeling, and it's something Biel...

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

It just occurred to me that even though we as Leeds fans have become accustomed to expecting the worst - and rightly so - this trepidation is something I haven't felt in a long time. It's something we're all feeling right now, and it's something Bielsa himself talked about: football's very strong e...

I’m not cheating. I knew everything I needed to know.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

We look at Stoke and it’s hard as the new coach has had 3 games. So we analysed the 26 games he (Nathan Jones) had at Luton.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

I want to be judged for my intentions. I don’t need the information I gather. For my conscience I feel I am innocent because I don’t think I’m trying to gain any advantage.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

MB when beaten 3-0 by Barca when with Bilbao - Guardiola said Bielsa knew more about Barca than he did!
If the spying was so effective it would be more useful!

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

The goal is to know who the players are, the systems, which players play in which system, I don’t need to go to watch a training session of the opponent to know how they play.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

All the data on Harry Wilson is laid before us. He knew everything about the player who didn’t play.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

The video is 41 minutes long, made up of Derby attacks over the course of the season.
When you see 41 minutes, you see what the path that the opponent attacks and you see the defensive weakness.
His staff then condense the video to eight minutes for the players to watch.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

Bielsa showing a video to demonstrate what Harry Wilson is planning to do when he raises both hands before taking a corner. It's a specific play which Derby employ.
You cannot analyse football if you do not know who each player is.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

How do we gather all this information? From analysis of their 31 games this season. I repeat I do this because I consider you don’t believe me & I want to convince you I’m telling the truth.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

Bielsa now showing video clips of chances in the Man Utd game.
This is why each game takes four hours. It's a way to get to know the opponent.

Now showing data about which players have missed which games, their minutes on the pitch.
I feel ashamed to have to tell you this.

4 hours for each game.
I can’t speak English but I can speak about the 24 teams of The Championship.... as you can see my aim is to compare Derby then & now. To analyse one game takes 4 hours.
