Leicester Saint

The Leicester City Thread

Recommended Posts


Leicester now guaranteed a top two finish. Straight into the group stages for champions league next season.

Some achievement.

Not quite yet, but almost. 1 more point required to finish above Man City, and Arsenal still have a game in hand. However, only 3 more points needed to finish above them. So it should just be a matter of time.

You're dead right though, a tremendous achievement.

You clearly haven't watched the replays of the Vardy sending off.

Not a penalty, but not a dive either. Their legs get tangled up and Vardy goes to ground.

It doesn't always have to be either a penalty or a dive. Sometimes momentum takes the player out.

But for the referee to be so certain as to issue a yellow card, knowing it would mean a red, smacks of an official desperate to take centre stage.

tbh Vardy did himself no favours with the exaggerated twist and fall, he also clearly put his leg in looking for the contact, admittedly though, acting like most other forward minded, fast players, just standard behaviour really week in week out

There is no question however that the ref was very poor on the day and had some issues, and to award Leicester that late penalty shows that in his own mind , he knew he had to 'balance' things to an extent. I think he attempted to take a stand on the wrestling in the box at every set piece, but basically ended up losing the plot, when you start that , you'd need to be awarding about six penalties per game.

Anyway, game's gone, as said before, a draw, probably erm, 'spot' on.

Its all about how Leicester react now against Swansea. If they toil in their next fixture and don't win and Tottenham cruise their game, there will be a huge momentum shift and Leicester's glorious failure will possibly start to shape as a real story.................the converse is also true, who's to say Tottenham won't trip up in a game shortly, maybe Kane will 'simulate' next and he'll get the pelters.

Squeaky bum time.....................but a fabulous bit of drama all the same

I stand slightly corrected. We're guaranteed a top 3 finish now. Man City and Arsenal have still to play each other, so they can't both finish above Leicester.

Therefore, automatic qualification for the Champions League group stages is guaranteed. No qualifying round to overcome.

Ranieri is a genius to have achieved this for the club.

Regardless of what happens now, this will go down in history as one of the most successful seasons in Leicester City's history.

Exactly, and 2nd is the worst Leicester will finish. (If it's 3rd, remind me to edit this.lol.gif )

Still favourites for 1st.

Enjoy.
