In yesterday’s EFL Board meeting, it was known that one topic of conversation would be Leeds United and manager Marcelo Bielsa and the subject we lovingly call Spygate.
With silence yesterday and nobody giving an update, the EFL have released a statement today stating that there are ‘a number of areas that require further exploration and clarification’ so unfortunately for the club it rumbles on, and we can no doubt enjoy another weekend of hand wringing from pundits glorifying their nonsensical opinions.
I guess we can also expect further moans from the eleven clubs who submitted a complaint, especially those who favour the points deduction punishment, for an act which isn’t actually against any EFL rules.
Quite what ‘further exploration’ is required is beyond me as Bielsa has been open and honest from the beginning of this saga, and I have no doubts that the club has clarified everything in the paperwork that was asked from it.
With this already rumbling on for almost a month, although the EFL state that the additional investigations will ‘take place at the earliest opportunity’, it will no doubt be another few weeks of nonsense yet.
