So, the Leeds United “spying” scandal keeps dragging on.

This is the latest statement from the English Football League (EFL)…

At its meeting on Friday afternoon, the EFL Board (*excluding representatives of the Championship) considered the matter of the incident in the vicinity of Derby County’s training ground on Thursday, January 10.

Following a comprehensive review of all available evidence, it was determined that there remain a number of areas that require further exploration and clarification and these investigations will take place at the earliest opportunity.

An update on this matter will be provided following receipt and analysis of those subsequent enquiries and until this point no further comment will be made.


Blah, blah, blah, blah! Sorry if you decided to read all of that.

The spying accusations were first made 4 weeks ago! In this time, I have managed to break my own leg, have it repaired and teach myself to walk on it again. It would appear the EFL have done bugger all…

There shouldn’t even be anything to discuss. Leeds have not committed any crime. Let’s all move on, forget about it, go home and eat jam sandwiches. The EFL are making this out to be as big and important as Brexit – they’re certainly being as slow to resolve the issue, as our government is to arranging a deal to leave the EU.

If I was a sceptical man, I would say that all of this stalling, in resolving the spying saga, is to unsettle Leeds United Football Club, who are performing surprisingly well this season. Leeds are the EFL’s goose, which lays the golden egg. If this goose flies to the Premier League, at the end of the season, where are the golden eggs going to come from? Yeovil? Forest Green? By unsettling the football club, it could be perceived as clipping the goose’s wings – therefore preventing it from flying away. Of course, this is only what a sceptical man might think. I’m not one of those, so I don’t believe a word of it and neither should you.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
