Top quality manager though. Gutted he is there tbh, genuine world class manager.
Bloke was banned for match fixing. He’s an Italian George Graham without the Scottish charm.

Won’t last long at Spurs anyway. The odd dramatic win doesn’t change the fact he likes his tactical stuff to be tight and dull. That lot like their football on the ground.

A very 'dodgy' pass by Tielemans straight to a Spuds player (someone must have made a fortune). The Leicester fans just can't believe what they've seen and nor can I.

Did you notice how full of energy Spuds were after their pre-season rest? Conte has always been a good but very lucky manager. Can't expect any favours from other teams and we just need to win ours.

The way we have been playing lately people have been saying we will finish about 8th because spurs and man utd win people are saying its mucked us up for 4th it's down to us to win our own games conte love him or hate him hes done well there and spurs man utd don't forget arsenal will probably be above us at the end of the season they have better squads and more money to buy players and with our team we are over achieving anyway

I think Tielemans is a top footballer, but what an earth was he thinking!!!!!!!!! With Leicester winning and Tottenham pushing I felt worse case a draw, which would have been alright for us...

Leicester are getting players back now, think they may do the opposite of what they usually do in the last 1/3rd of the season and go on a bit of a run. As for Rodgers, sure I read that Man U want him in the summer if they can't get Pocahontas?

Yeah. A bit of a strange one.
From what I've seen this season, Leicester have been pretty poor all eason and just getting away with it. Rodgers seems to let his ego run away with itself and try and make it all about him which leads to player resentment.
Personally not too unhappy with last night's result as I've been expecting a Leicester revival and thought they would make a run for 5/6 th place, so any loss is good for us.
Definitely seems like Rodgers has an uphill struggle.

Missing key CBs for large chunks of the season did for Liverpool last season. It’s the same at Leicester this time around and will ultimately prove our downfall. Soyuncu has been their Issa Dopi. Never underestimate the importance of top quality 3rd, 4th and even 5th choice central defenders.

Leicester have one of the most brittle defences in the league and even when they were top 6 it was because they avoided draws - they used to lose a huge amount of games for a supposedly top team.

Their young players are consistently over-rated off the back of them winning the league when they did have some genuinely outstanding players in Mahrez, Kante, Vardy. They are gone, but they are living off that and the stupidity of the likes of Man U paying £80m for Herman Munster.

How many Leicester players would actually get in our team ? (we've beaten them 10-3 on agg. over the last three encounters). Not many, imo.

As for Brentford. They've got something about them, but Toney is now three goals from open play in 20 PL games this season.

On the old yardstick of paying £2m-£3m for every goal scored, he most certainly isn't £30m.

long way to run for the top6 places. however we are the underdogs for top4 . we need a few players in and I expect some deals after the man utd game. I expect lingard will be "ill" for our match and sign for us on the monday.

spurs have a few tasty games to play arsenal and chelsea coming up , hopefully they lose both to reign them in.

not over yet for us but we cant afford anymore slip ups.

Agree the football he get his sides to play isn’t that entertaining but he is a top manager with ridiculous pedigree. I wish he wasn’t their manager cos I think he’ll do a good job, Think they’ll get top 4 easy with him.

I see the Spurs fan above who does not rate any West Ham player is "not too unhappy with last night's result". The shock.

Conte is basically the modern Mourinho, he will come in, make them boring solid but win games, sign high wage older players, wina trophy, then upset everyone by the end of the second season, it's why while Conte is class a lot of the real top teams are a bit scared of him

Hope Liverpool play a weakened team tonight, and still thrash Arsenal.

0-4, please. :newthumb:

The fact Arsenal got their weekend game postponed when they can put that team out is shambolic.

The whole season is in disrepute.

I am still fuming about the result last night
That 3 points plus the ongoing momentum is massive for them

More concerned about Leicester than Spurs getting it together and challenging us? Lawdy!

Wouldn’t normally want Liverpool to win, but for their abuse of the postponement guidance last weekend, I hope Arsenal get stuffed.
