    Congratulation Leicester - an incredible achievement by any standards, but especially considering where they were for most of the previous season. Unbelievable.

    Absolutely brilliant, Leicester. Best thing to happen to the league in years.

    I wonder what effect , if any, this will have on the prem?

    Aside from giving all the small-fry teams like Palace false hope at the start of every season, to make our inevitable disappointment even more acute

    A conspiracy theorist might suggest it's all been engineered to deflect apathy from the premiership and maintain tv subscription dues from casual fans in the era of super rich clubs, subscription price rises, cord cutting, and record breaking TV rights bids for prem rights from BT and Sky.

    Or it was part of Lineker's deal with BT?

    Or Gary Lineker is in league with the Illuminati?

    :hmm:

    It would be nice to think there'll be a succession of smaller teams having a tilt at the title. It's probably very unlikely but who knows after what Leicester have done? More likely I think is that there'll be a tactical impact - it will be interesting to see if there's a move away from the obsession with possession stats and trying to be a second rate Barcelona.

    Yep, this is more likely to be their effect. It may not be totally positive - Atletico Madrid are accused of being boring for playing like that.

    Congratulations Leicester, well deserved.
    Mr Ranieri will always be respected by the Chelsea faithful, he and his team are going to have a great reception at The Bridge, then we'll beat ya :)

    There's rumours that John Terry was seen after last night's game changing into his Leicester kit.

    What's got big teeth and won the Premiership?

    I'm still far too amused that Jamie Vardy actually had a party :D

    Also wonder how quickly people on Ranieri's plane turned their phones on to check the score and be the first one to tell him.

    Fantastic achievement, winning the Premier League with two matches still to play. Well done the mighty Foxes. Next year, the Champion's League!

    It's pretty amusing.

    I think he moved his meal forwards and flew back earlier so he could watch the game, at least thats the story that kept reaching my ears today.

    Telling your 96 year old mum to shift her plans so you can watch a footy game.

    It's a brave strategy :eek:

    A mate of mine reckons Leicester have a new doctor and the latest research chems. You heard it here first! :D

    To pataquote Andy Murray "sometimes we get near the end of the game and it's like my opponent isn't getting tired..."

    Well done Leicester. Most tedious link to their success that I heard ad nauseaum today was on local radio in Mansfield where Mansfield Town FC said that it was their 1 -1 draw with Leicester in a cup competition that spured them on to the Premiership title.

    I saw a reference to that earlier somewhere. It wasn't even a cup tie - just a friendly. I'm not sure it was exactly a key moment in the season.:D
