    Leicester became the first team to be last on Christmas day one year then top the league on Christmas day next year. Also, only one or two teams in the last 10 seasons or so failed to win the Premier League after being on top on Christmas. Slippy G caused one of those exceptions.
    Honestly I thought that nothing will top the Atletico 2013/14 success but if Leicester win they will raise the bar much much higher. Wish I could say that the only hard teams remaining for them are Arsenal and Manchester United, but in the EPL upsets happen more often than in any other league. Leicester being in this position pretty much sums it up.

    This would trump Denmark's success at the 1992 Euro's. A championship they entered only because Yugoslavia were banned from taking part. Quite remarkable that they are playing such good football too.

    Another poor performance really, can't fault Klopp of course because this is not his team, the league is essentially a write-off now, hope we go all out for the cups and the Europa League, who knows, I'd more then welcome a repeat of 2000/1 ;)

    I was at the game and the atmosphere was toxic from the very first minute, some lads in the back end of the Kop tried their best as always though.

    As for walking out in the 77th minute, I fully understand the purpose under that, BUT in my opinion they should have arranged it better. You go to the ground to support your team, until the very end. We saw how all this affected the team in the last 10 minutes or so! I personally didn't walk out but don't get me wrong, £77 for a ticket is a ******* disgrace.

    P.S. I'm loving Leicester!

    Very strange really! According to his interviews, he wanted to play in England and was desperate to prove his worth to the Brazilians! Well, I guess if he chooses money over his career im delighted that we didn't get him in the first place - feels like we dodged a bullet and for £38m a fairly expensive one!

    Agreed with the majority of your points, especially Ranieri is a revelation, I didn't rate him. Fair play, Claudio :p

    Sod off with that.

    I remember Tomas Brolin goating during the euro 1992 tournament.

    Leicester looking like winning the title, Chelsea in a relegation battle, Mourinho going to Man Utd and Guardiola to City.. madness.

    At least we can rely on Arsenal coming up short, nice to have some normality to keep us grounded ;)

    Let's talk about Leicester for real, though. What are their chances? How will they cope with the same key players having to perform at the very limit of their abilities?

    I think they are the favorites by a small percentage. I don't believe nearly as much as others do in City. As I always say, they have an unbalanced team and that hurts them a lot.
    Arsenal is Arsenal.
    I barely watched Tottenham this season and don't know what to think about them. I would place them as the second
    No one else has a chance .

    I don't think Leicester can win, just a gut instinct that says the Premier league isn't that kind of league (Kingsman reference).

    I think manshittie or arsenal will win and my beloved ManYoo won't make Europe.

    Got to agree. There's usually a team up there past the midway point, granted it's usually pushing for a Champions League spot before falling away in the last few months, not actually challenging for the title like Leicester, but still.. they usually fall away and Leicester will probably do the same.

    Man City would be my bet at this point.
