So the title is gone. But we knew there was a slim chance even if we won against chelsea.
But please, please give us 2 place. I would honestly be really happy after all.
No chance at all really. We can see now that Chelsea would have scored own goals against L'ster to make sure they won it.

Proud of the Spurs boys this season. If City beat Arsenal, second place is pretty much guaranteed. Best finish since 1963.You have to imagine we'll get enough from the Southampton and Newcastle games, even if the Goons get a decent result. That's a good end to the season, and then with some clever purchases in the summer and some good Euro experience, we have to expect the boys will be up for a second bite at the cherry next year.

Hard to enjoy the Leicester City title because we came so close
But to put it in perspective as to how amazing both our seasons have been, we all know that a club's wage bill correlates quite well with their league position.
Leicester pay the 17th highest wage bill. 17th. Unbelievable.
We pay the 6th highest.

Well done to them, but I don't support them so my heartfelt congrats and commiserations go to Spurs. We've had an amazing season but it's not over yet. Let's win our final home game to give the supporters a really brilliant send-off and consolidate that 2nd place. Poch will want two victories. And the way we played at Stamford Bridge should do that. COYS.

I wonder whether we'll have a full squad available for Saints game. We know Alli is already out and I think Dembele will be given a ban too. Is Toby ok, I heard something last night suggesting he was injured.

Any one else worrying the PL might deduct points as well as giving us a fine after new record 9 yellow cards. Lucky not to have had Dier red carded too.

Apparently the assistant referee was aware of the Dembele incident, and Clattenburg clearly saw the Dier tackle and the linesman seemed to have seen the Lamela/Fabregas incident. If it all gets written up in the report then there is nothing doing. We'll get a fine but that's all.

Leicester City have had an amazing, unprecedented and never to be repeated season where just about everything fell perfectly in place for them from start to finish. I'n not saying they don't deserve it because I think they do. That's just how it is.

But with three games left, we were the only team challenging. The youngest and most exciting team in the league.

Fuck, we are good.

Let's hope so, our record without Dembele is appalling this season, we really need him to close out 2nd place next weekend.

Hopefully that's the case, I'll be feeling a lot better if I know we'll have Dembele free for Sunday. Being from Southampton this is like a derby game for me, we cannot lose. Where did you hear this?

I have a feeling we'll see a good reaction from the lads on Sunday.

The youngest team in the league and we were the last team challenging for the title, we have secured group stage of the CL which was our objective at the start of the season so well done lads. If I was an arsenal or chelski fan I would be questioning why we were not challenging rather then be happy Spurs haven't won it.

I am optimistic that we can challenge next season #COYS

Still absolutely gutted it's all over, but so proud of our club.
There is something special happening at the moment and I can't wait for next season. I think we'll be even stronger next season and have another crack at the title...COYS

Well thank god for the Euros, otherwise it would have been a whole summer of Leicester on SSN :barefoot:
It will be Leicester 24-7, as SKY don't have the Euro's and we've seen with Champions League, if they don't have it, they make out that it never existed and completely blot it out.

As someone posted earlier, Torres was let off scot-free for scratching Jan's face a couple of seasons ago (what is it with Chelsea trying to constantly main Jan?), so the FA have set a precedent on incidents like that.

Don't need to watch Sky during the summer. They haven't got the Euros, the Olympics, the Tour de France, Wimbledon...
