Leeds United fans had a brand new chant aimed at Frank Lampard after win against Derby

“Because all of the spies, are hidden away”

Leeds United beat Derby County 1-0 today in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final at Pride Park.

It may seem like a distant memory now but there is still bad blood between the two teams due to ‘Spygate’, after it emerged that Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa had sent spies to watch Derby County’s training sessions.

As a result, Leeds fans celebrated their hard-fought win, courtesy of a Kemar Roofe goal in the 55th minute, with a brand new chant taking aim at Derby manager Frank Lampard, who reacted vociferously to the ‘Spygate’ incident and openly questioned the ethics of Bielsa’s actions.

It goes a little something like this, to the tune of ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ by Oasis:

“Because all of the spies, are hidden away,

Try not to worry, you’ll beat us someday,

We beat you at home and we beat you away,

Stop crying Frank Lampard…”

Not bad, is it? And that Yorkshire pronunciation, turning Lampard into Lampaaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhd? Magic. Just magic.
