It's remarkable what confidence and belief does for players. Huth and Morgan look like Maldini and Nesta.

Leicester should win this title now if they can win this match.

Haha 3-0, this is hilarious.

Corner wasn't a corner and actually looked like it might've curled out of play but everything just rolling for Leicester at the minute.

And they are doing it playing 4-4-fucking-2 and with Ranieri as their manager lol!

Of course it's the only way to play 4-4-2 these days - defend deep, two banks of four, hard working CMs (Kante Twins, what an amazing nick it is and Drinkwater are doing very well) and plenty of pace up front (Okazaki work is seriously underrated).

They are very well drilled, play to their strength (so even Huth and Morgan look good) and now have a ton of confidence as well. They also somehow stay injury free (except for Schlupp who would be probably a solid bench player).

And Mahrez is showing Ben Arfa what he could be. Similar set of skills, but doing it being still a team player.

To be fair Leicester don't sit on the edge of their box then give it to Mahrez and expect him to take on the whole team, ofcourse when Ben Arfa was dropped we didn't even have that, so we scored less and conceded more. Rolling Eyes

Well small clubs can still win, if they are being bought by some rich owner, look at CHelsea and City, But Leicester....still, the pressure is now gonna be real, lets see how they cope with that.

They actually were. That's how they got promoted from Championship - they spent more than any other club there.

Their owners are quite rich (whatever it means these days...), they just didn't go Sunderland way to spent huge money on players who really don't want to be there,

Yeah being able to play basically the same lineup every week is a big part of it for Leicester. they've hit on a winning combination and been able to stick with it.


Spurs go 2nd if they beat Watford.

The thing is these rich clubs think English football is normal football, it's not, it's basketball played with the feet. Getting yourself a fancy new German/Spanish/Dutch coach that can win everything on the continent using clever tactics is no guarantee of anything, same with the players. Ranieri realises this which is why he's such a different coach to the one he was at Chelsea.

Some more thoughts on Mahrez vs Ben Arfa - if (when?) Mahrez will leave this summer maybe trying to replace him with Ben Arfa would not be such a bad idea. They are very, very similar in skills and maybe someone like Ranieri would find a way to get to Ben Arfa, at least for a few months.

I would definitely advise them to not go near Cabella or Thauvin.


Tony Pulis is horrific. 4 CB's, 4 DM's, 1 shit winger, 1 big shit CF. If we don't win against this lot....

Even Everton are above us as it stands - if it wasn't for the cups I'd have done a Kimmy by now and pretended not to watch any more football this season.

Our game has been crazy. Suicidal tactics from WBA, terrible refereeing, Pulis and his entire coaching staff going mental at every decision.

Wise of QSF to break up front 2 and try and plug midfield - expect nothing today though and sounds like we are being dominated.
