With a comfortable opening day victory over promotion tipped Stoke City and far more confidence in the club with transfer dealings finally kicking into gear this last week, it seems manager Marcelo Bielsa is a man who can do no wrong at this moment in time.

With the squad preparing for the away trip to Pride Park tomorrow to face Frank Lampard’s Derby County, with renewed optimism at both clubs the game could be a cracker.

With the obligatory pre-game press conference conducted by goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell as build up to the game continues, the stopper revealed to the media that Bielsa had been making the players watch videos of the likes of Manchester City, Barcelona and Bayern Munich so they could study their play and the way they pass and move the ball around in different parts of the pitch as that’s what he wants the group to start pivoting to in their own play.

The Tweet from Yorkshire Evening Post journo Phil Hay certainly set tongues wagging on social media.

There were plenty more words of support for what is such a simple act really. With the technology available to clubs now in the game, rather than just going through your own video and coaches talking about what a player could do differently and so on, picking out a similar example to really see it in action can only help a players’ development I would think.

Plenty are excited about where we might be in six months under his charge.
