Oh dear. Derby County are doing their best to manufacture a rivalry with Leeds United but Whites fans aren’t having any of it. 

The seeds of this dispute started with Spygate last year and continued when the Derby players celebrated their play-off win against Leeds by making binocular gestures.

Meanwhile, Leeds have done their talking on the pitch and are currently top of the league and on the brink of promotion to the Premier League.

That means we can ignore Derby and concentrate on our true rivals, Man United.

However, while Leeds are still in the Championship, Derby are doing their best to make the most of it and posted a fairly bizarre tweet on Friday that read, “Can you name every #DCFC goalscorer against Leeds United since 2000? You’ve got 8 minutes to name them all…”

Erm wat?

That was the reaction from the majority of Leeds fans

Our absolute favourite response came from one Leeds fans who replied, “No but I can probably name all the DCFC fans that attended Elland Road this season” and added a picture of their dismal away support.

A couple of Leeds fans called on the Whites social media manager to respond and he’s got a great record of absolutely taking other clubs to bits when they try and jump on the Whites’ coattails.

The meme of Luke Ayling saying, “We’re up here, you’re down there” was also an apt one to pull out by way of response.

Derby are in mid-table and with seemingly little chance of getting back in the play-offs again this season.

Ironically, the majority of responses to the Derby tweet were from Leed fans, with just 141 total likes. Leeds would have liked more.

And one reply could come back to haunt them. That read, “How many points will the @EFL deduct Derby for breaking FFP rules?” with an investigation going on into the sale of their stadium to a sister club.

Here are the best of the rest of the responses from Leeds fans…
