That "82 points from last 38 games" stat says a lot to me about how important it is to finish a season strongly and carry it through to the next season.

It's what we did prior to finishing second.

I'd love us to finish this season strongly (even if we miss out on top 4) as I think it could help us get off to a flyer next season.

Aye, I've been saying that to people.

That having been said, didn't we finish Kenny's second first half season strongly?

Leicester 1 up against Rafas Toon Army. Under the cosh a bit with 5 to go.

If they can win this. Looking at the run in they've got, I think they just might win the league.

They just said on sky '5 clear with 8 games to go - no team has ever failed to win the league from the same position'

Surely that's wrong. Wasn't ManU 8 clear with 8 to go when they lost it to Man City in 2012?

So if Leicester beat Sunderland away next weekend they will be a mighty 10 points clear of Spurs who will be due to play Man U on Sunday.

They are going to do it aren't they?

If for example Leiceter win and Spurs draw which seems conceivable they'd be 9 points clear with 5 to play.

He looks outstanding alright. I still can't believe the run they are on, it will be the greatest footballing story of all time. In this day and age where the game is ruined by money, greed and power, Leicester winning the league is like a gift to football.

I really hope they can do it, amazing story.

Next season's Sky football ad's will have former Kiddersminster Harriers loanee Wes Morgan proudly lifting the Premier League trophy. With the likes of Marc Albrighton and Danny Simpson celebrating in the background! Can't get my head around this at all.

Amazing how everyone missed Kante. You watch him now and he stands out like a fucking gigantic sore thumb. It's amazing.

I can't get my head around what is happening. I still worry they'll blow it, but really they could have it won by next weekend. Incredible.

an amazing story, one minute escaping relegation by the skin of your teeth, then next minute blowing away the multi millionaires. good luck to them all.

it just goes to show that you dont need to be spunking away millions on glitterazi players. a great work ethic and all parts working together. proper football

makes me laugh when i hear people being snobbish about certain players... not premiership proven, ok at a smaller club but couldnt make it at a top club, etc...

Kante is fucking amazing. Reckon he will be heading to the likes of Madrid or Barca though, but he is exactly the sort of player we are missing. Whoever scouted him (and Mahrez) did a fantastic job.

Definitely. Out of all them, he's the one I'd be most interested in. He's unreal.

In some ways its been a perfect storm for Leicester with how crap the so called big teams have been.

But i hope it also shows with excellent scouting, a lot of hardwork and teamwork what is possible. During Fergie's reign too many teams lay down for them as they had so poor expectations a draw was like a win (ffs). Aim high and anything is possible (and that especially includes us).

As mentioned by many Kante has been immense - compare his mobility to our tortoises in midfield. Huth and Morgan may be cart horses but they do exactly what is needed - clear their lines and give the ball to players with better ability (take not Sakho and Skrtel).

Finally Mahrez and Vardy - Consistently get goals and assists and for all the trumpet blowing for the likes of Coutinho, Sturrige, Firmino, Lallana etc they don't and that's why we languish in 9th place.

I reckon (and hope) they will stick together next season to see if they can continue their story in the Champions League. 2017/2018 is when they'll be at new clubs.

The thing with Leicester winning the league is that it shifts the focus from money back onto quality coaching and club atmosphere. Get the basics right, don't overcomplicate things, and who knows how things could go.

Leicester are like a microcosm of Fergie's Mancs. Pace, power, a sprinkle of creativity, and thuggery (Huth).

I expect the wheels to go off them next year and finish woefully mid table or worse. They will find it hard to retain some of their best players.

It will be the greatest achievement in league history if they win it this year and I expect them to win it.

they showed a table over the last year and Leicester would be on 91 points and 18 clear of second place. fairytale comeback from bottom of the table

Ranieri has been brilliant as well , really want them to win it with games to spare so they can enjoy it.
