De Jong barely plays, he's always getting collapsed lungs, or tripping over space hoppers, or however the f**k he gets injured. And to be fair he's considered a forward here, the debate with him is whether he should start ahead of Perez.

Sissoko looks fine until he gets in the final 3rd, but he crosses and shoots like a toddler, no technique. I would look at converting him into a wingback, or sell him.

Townsend has almost zero talent, he has no awareness of the players around him, we've spent about 36m on absolute shit trying to replace Ben Arfa now.

Shelvey has a decent pass on him, but that's it. He's hopeless off the ball and has little athleticism, at best he's another Huddlestone or Charlie Adam and nothing more.

Mitrovic I like, but he's the only player we have that has the right attitude.

It's all moot now anyway, it's over and has been for weeks, they've been planning their summer moves, pick up another signing on fee, then move on again, maybe get a move to China. We've got a squad full of bums, getting relegated in the worst ever premier league season is fucking shameful, but they won't care.

Not that it's necessarily these players, but I must say it was rather strange how quickly Vardy recovered from his groin surgery in January. Kante as well, injured for a week with a thigh strain I think. Could be totally unconnected but at the same time it wouldn't altogether surprise me. The improvement in he space of time they managed does seem rather miraculous.

All that said, got to wonder what drugs the Chelsea players were then being prescribed, having the exact opposite effect.

Well Costa is one of the rumoured Chelsea players, definitely plays like a coke fiend IMO.

Seems like our own Calciopoli has gone down this season - in which case they should award the title to any team in red from Merseyside.

Whether this drug dealer is legit or not, I think it's very likely that UK sport has a massive drugs problem, we have this strange arrogant attitude that it couldn't possibly happen here and that if it does it's just an anomaly. IMO there are obvious cases out there and we just turn a blind eye, whether it's on purpose or subconscious denial or whatever.

I haven't read the whole thing yet but it says Chelsea players were allegedly taking drugs between 2001 and 2007

We're always far too quick to believe our own people are innocent. Look at how lightly Paula Radcliffe & Mo Farah have been treated after being accused of doping. If they were foreigners we would want them hung, drawn and quartered.

Classic Leicester luck - Simpson saved it with his arm and it's laughed off. I guess there's something to say for officials allowing teams to win the league sometimes, we saw it for years with United. Still, they will deserve this title, the rest of the teams have been nothing short of disgraceful, Spurs aside who have punched massively above their weight.

Personally for me it was not a penalty - arm not extended and very close to his body, quite a natural position when running.

We can always move back in time 20 years when Roberto Baggio was winning penalties kicking ball into opposite's player arm (aften close to body) from 2 meters distance, but I actually like current rules and Oliver IMO got it right this time.

The player stopped the ball going into the net probably with his arm. That's a pen and a red card, deliberate or not.

I don't think it was a pen. Fucked if I know what the actual rule is these days but I can't see how or why that should be given as handball. What could be possibly do with his arms in that situation?

Also can't believe Simpson didn't just score there

Well that's that.

Most Spursy thing ever to have scored the most, conceded the least, been called the best opposistion by several managers & players, and yet, we are going to get beaten to the title by Leicester. lol!

Not a penalty for me, they deserve it, especially for how they switched up their style once the goals started drying up.

Bodes well for next season though. They're bound to lose a player or two I think, despite all this. Can't see you guys selling up this time, not when you're this close to breaking things up at the top.

Spurs have no chance next season, neither do we or United. City with Pep and unlimited funds, Chelsea with Conte and unlimited funds. Good luck finishing above those 2 for starters. If Arsenal get rid of Wenger they are another world class forward away from being a proper force as well.

That's wrong Luis, everyone is loaded plus none of the true top players want to play in England anymore. Leicester will find it tough with juggling Europe, but another surprise package could take their place.

City need to turn their squad over and Chelsea look lost.

Quick fix for Chelsea IMO. Sign Stones and a good fullback. Improve the mentality and tactical element.

Hazard, Costa, Fabregas, Willian, Oscar.

Maybe add another quality forward.

More than enough there to win the title or challenge again.
