Played badly is an understatement. The team's played very badly this year.
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.
About 26 years right?
Fair play to you Leicester, a title deserved and well won. Congratulations
Leicester City, Premier League Champions - the world turned upside down!
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
Fantastic pessimistic take. Good work.
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?
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.
there are always a number of smaller sides having a tilt at the title.
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
A somewhat ill-considered (imo) foray into the realm of football commentary
There's rumours that John Terry was seen after last night's game changing into his Leicester kit.
Eat your words gentlemen.
when you do things like this without reading the thread it makes you look silly. why not try reading page 13.
Congratulations Leicester City, well deserved
What's got big teeth and won the Premiership?
I'm still far too amused that Jamie Vardy actually had a party
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
He tinkered with it!
A mate of mine reckons Leicester have a new doctor and the latest research chems. You heard it here first!
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.
Biggest thing ever to happen in Mansfield tho
it's a good try at getting a rematch this summer. Hope it works
