Kasper Schmeichel has already got his hands on the trophy.



Happy for Leicester but not sure it's the new dawn all the press are saying this morning. The 'big clubs' are going to turn the transfer market upside down this summer with the money they will throw at next season.

Someone needs to make the LVG decision, one way or another and they need to do it right after the final whistle at Wembley. Next season's manager will need funds, and he will need to move quickly.

If we finish in the top four (or not), it will be because of our results and the results of others.

The only time this isn't true is if the Champions win all their games.

Even if we finish fourth, we may not get into the CL anyway.
Man Utd have been ******* all season and ONLY NOW trying to get results to get into the CL and now hoping other teams will help them out ie you have NO CHOICE but to rely on other teams to help you acheive this rather than by doing it yourselves.

Ahhhh yes if you can not get there by the normal route....go out and buy the title by throwing money at it.............Just like Leicester did.

That's the thing. Leicester have won it with moderately low spending. The 'big' clubs won't even think maybe we're doing wrong they'll just spend a more ridiculously obscene amount of money. Can't even start to predict how much will be thrown about this summer.

that's right, we've only just realised that top 4 (may) equals CL football.

whatever the other teams do, we still have to do it ourselves, as last time I looked we weren't in the top 4...

Only a couple of weeks until we find out who that is. I am on tenterhooks.

We've been spoilt over the last 23 years, if we aren't first (or challenging for first), we're not happy. That's a sign of the size and status of the club.

You're not a Leicester fan, and you're not City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs or Liverpool, otherwise you wouldn't be happy. Wigan?

He won the Premier League title at 29 years old, the same age and same calendar day when his father won Manchester United's first such title in 1993.

On both occasions, the respective teams (Manchester United and Leicester City) clinched the titles by nearest rivals (Aston Villa and Tottenham) not winning.

That's part of their problem, however I don't see how any of the "big clubs" could ever even try doing a Leicester. If this was Manchester United, would Claudio have survived the backlash when his team of rejects drew 1-1 at Bournemouth. The fees demanded would go up anyway as soon as they are interested.

I think LVG has proved that he probably would have done.
So far, we've only sacked one manager in 30 years.

That's the problem, you spout so much ***** that I don't really believe anything you say.

even if you told us who you support, you'd probably get it wrong.
