    Not OTT at all, in fact you should’ve pumped his Mrs up the bum hole while the fat fucker burnt

    It's happening again...

    Always happy when Arsenal lose, but Leicester have been very very good again.

    Stand Firm And Strike Hard

    Rodgers is a top manager. Top four isn't unrealistic for Leicester this year

    Maddison is a huge talent. We have so many exciting young England players coming through.

    He's a good player. A bit cocky. Super Gaz will need to train him first.

    Whenever I hear the name Maddison, I think of a porn star and a dodgy Nottingham nightclub during the 1980’s.

    Think Leicester will do well this season and be funny if they stopped the Scouse.

    They probably have a better team than that which won the league, but the other teams have upped their game after that weak season and it will be tough to keep it going.

    But never a 'team'.

    I remember the nightclub well. My girlfriend at the time had a ‘I’d rather be at Madisons’ car sticker in her mini.

    started watching the Man U v Brighton game on TV this morning... what a load of boring rubbish
    Every time I watched Leicester on TV they played exciting football and are winning most games, so definitely think Leicester will be above Man U, Arsenal & Spurs come end of the season
    Chelsea are coming on strong and playing good football with Lampard bringing loads of English whiz-kids through the ranks into first team, so Chelsea will probably finish third.

    For Leicester City to finish 4th with no big-name, high priced stars would be an amazing achievement, and inspiration to other similar-size clubs like Forest & Wolves that the BIG-SIX are not an elite any more.

    Leicester are a joy to watch.

    Can't say i've ever felt any semblance of rivalry there.

    I enjoy seeing them disrupting the status quo.

    Not sure I'd be that kind, Youri Tielemans was a standout signing and without a doubt he was in demand. They've started spending good sums of money.

    Agree with the rest though, they look good.

    Big credit for where Leicester are today goes to the clubs management set-up, Newcastle and West Ham have spent a lot more than Leicester, on players no one ever heard of before... came with big expectations (Joelinton for 40 million), but have been unable to make any impact at these clubs.

    Fans at clubs like Spurs and Man Utd have been tearing their hair out why Leicester City can spend 30 million on Tielemans last summer, and their TOP 6 MEGACLUBS couldn't.... LOL

    When it comes to buying players its all relative of course...compared to any Championship club, Leicester have incredible spending power, but compared to many other premier League clubs, the cost of assembling their squad (eg. Vardy at 1 million, Maddison from Norwich for 15 million), Jonny Evans for 3 million from WBA) is paltry, but put a great team together

    I think the biggest credit has to go to the biggest plonker, Nigel Pearson, for keeping them up when, to all intents and purposes, they were down and out.

    That was a pretty amazing achievement..... they were down and out at Christmas….. so many points adrift

    Don't remember the details but they were in a position where had to win 9 or 10 of their last dozen games

    Pearson somehow got them motivated and they went on amazing run, winning the required sequence of games

    It was because Leicester just escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth that the bookies gave 5000:1 odds o them winning Premier League the following season and the world now calls it the 'greatest sporting achievement of all time by any team'. Not sure if it beats a family club like Forest winning two European Cups, but seems Leicester are the new darlings of world football.

    That prick Rodgers! Did the KING in the play-offs with Swansea. McGugan hit the bar and Earnie the post late on.

    Cant stand swindling Fester. Pity it's not another club annoying the top 5.

    Ray.... time to move on. When you carry hate in your heart for others, you are actually hurting yourself, not the object of your displeasure.

    For some Sunday reflections, the Bible tells us to forgive and forget / turn the other cheek. Why keep harping on about one terrible event that happened 20 years ago? We don't blame all Germans for sins of the Nazi's.

    I am looking at the positive, saying Leicester's success should be an inspiration to teams like Forest. Similar size clubs, so if they can do it why not us?

    Don't be bitter, embrace the future, and let's hope it's NFFC upsetting the BIG SIX in a few years time.

    They’re a good side, the FL won’t be chasing them for their latest financial indiscretion anytime soon

    Yep, credit to them for pushing everyone out the way to jump on the ladder before it was hoisted up. They’ve been very clever with the rules in the past but think they have a good model now.

    Nope. I look forward to the day they're relegated again.

    A league with same top six every year is mostly unwatchable, but it's marginally better than one where the domination of those positions is occasionally broken by Leicester City.

    I'd love to see them relegated to wipe the inane grin off Lineker's face
