Its mad that if they finish 3rd their season could be considered a failure. I think they will win the thing because they have been the best side during the season. But its crazy the position they are in.

Test will come in October when they have had chance to strengthen and had some Champions League games (Of which they will be seeded in Pot 1 if they win )

It's a great story and should offer hope to every team in the league. It's als refreshing to see another team in the CL and (hopefully) winning a title.

I think the fact they've scrapped for survival will assist them in their run in, they know what it means to succesfully fight for points to achieve an objective. 7 points clear with 5 games to go having only lost 3 times all season suggests they will coast home.

I suspect they will (relatively) struggle to match this next season with all the additional commitments and Spotlight. I doubt they or their supporters will care!

Apart from Vardy, Marhez, Schmeichel or Kante, what player would you take from Leicester?

I think mine would be Fuchs.

Okazaki. He looks decent and probably Drinkwater. I think he has been the one in the last 2 months that has pulled them through the harder games. His passing and ball retention has been great.

I guess as probable title winners, you can point to any of them and feel sure of their success but I think Drinkwater is a cut above. Reminds me of Henderson in our title run in.

The same apart from the bit that Drinkwater isn't banned?

There's a story running which states they may have broken financial fair play rules.

Well that's true, but it would be a scandal if they were stripped of a title in the Premier League for something that dates back to the Championship.

QPR had a far more expensive squad that season

If they are it smacks of the PL doing all they can to ensure the "right" teams can win the league

The Football League have been looking at this for a while (Swiss Ramble blog includes some info on it) but yes its now "newsworthy" whereas a month ago it wasn't.

I think you can be docked points, but it's the nuclear option - can't see that happening at all. Might take a little bit of gloss off the romance though, which would be a shame.

Tickets to watch Premier League leaders Leicester's final home game are being offered for 15,000 a pair through an online re-sale website.

The 7 May match against Everton, which could see the Foxes become champions, sold out in 90 minutes on Monday.

But within hours, individual tickets were being advertised for more than 3,000 each and a pair for much more.

Yep. The football league has its own version of FFP.

Why it's taken them this long to not conclude their investigation is anyone's guess.

Even if Spurs win every game if Leicester cant get the required points from that lot then fucking hell. Swansea didnt even try yesterday by all accounts. Utd are shit. Everton are shit. Chelsea are shit and will lose on purpose anyway.

Yes and we were a bit shit for a while under Klopp while we adapted, not to mention were ravaged by injuries to our best players. We'll finish above them anyway.

I'm not sure what your point is here again, other than being a boring, contrary troll.

No point at all bar winding you up, which I did.

Anyway, seems you're obsessed with what United do more than most. Exciting.

That second yellow looked harsh to me.

Getting the draw is huge, keeps the momentum with Leicester and all the pressure on Spurs now.

At worst a 5 point lead with 4 to play - you'd have to think they'll do it.

Klopp's not daft either. He knows this season is a completely free hit. It's only now that we're seeing the players grasp what's needed of them and we're looking pretty good.

There's no comparison to Klopp utilising Rodgers aquad to LvG and his mega spending spree and crap philosophies

Over the last 5, 10, 15, 20, or 25 games we have been better than them. Any variations between that I do not know.

But in multiples of 5.. We've been better at every stage.
