sounds like poch has aspirations to manage psg one day. i didn't know he captained psg for two years.
+1
He is still young, he will have plenty of time to manage PSG once he has finished the project here.
Was hoping you guys could pull it off would really like to see Tottenham win the league I think it was the best time for it , however it's gone I can't see hungry and compact Leicester dropping 9 points ,
+2
Yea, the title is gone. That said, I don't think this team is a 1 off & we can challenge again for the title in the next 2-3 seasons if we keep this team together.
+1
On the bright side, Alli getting a 3-match ban won't really matter now.
+3
Ah, the dream ends. It's been a great season, my fellow yids. Let's just enjoy the remaining games. A couple more points and we secure CL; shame we couldn't wrap that up today. COYS!
+4
Too sad to put the season in words today. Maybe before the Chelsea game(hope we end our winless streak at the bridge).
+3
As long as we get to see Champion's League football being played in the final season at the Lane, I think it will be considered job done (if we manage to finish above 4th and skip the play-offs, that would be even nicer).
+2
Who knows, next year we may even see the title head! What a swan song that would be :)
+1
Ref did his best to help West Brom with their thuggish play and time wasting. Post and crossbar finished us off. Just not our day. Congratulations to lucky Leicester.
+4
Harsh to say leiscter were "lucky" to win the title.
+15
Well of course they still had to win their games and play well but they've definitely had a lot of help too.

It's a combination of a few of their players being in the best form of their lives simultaneously, a complete lack of injuries, always seeming to get more favourable referee calls (twice as many penalties as any other team, lots of uncalled penalties in their favor, for example clear ones in their match against West Brom), and teams not taking them as seriously at the start of the season that have resulted in them being able to get so many points.

They've also been fortunate in catching teams on their off-days resulting in their extremely statistically unlikely number of 1-0 wins this season. They were very lucky in their games against us this season to take as many points as they did. They've gotten way more points than I think their level of play actually deserves and that's how they are at the top.

But credit to them, they have handled all the pressure and shocked everyone. I'm obviously bitter at the fact that in our best season in recent memory where we have stood up to all the big teams and played wonderful football, these guys come out of nowhere and steamroll their way through to the title, but at the end of the day, they have one of the oldest squads in the league while we have the youngest; they likely won't be able to replicate anything close to this level of performance in the future whereas we are just getting started.
+2
You know the Pulis game plan worked when Vertonghen had the third most attempts on goal...
+2
SuperSpurs you hating man
+5
No man just no. Every team title winning rides on luck to some extent. By saying "lucky Leicester" you're implying that other teams in their situation would've also won if they had the same luck, which is juat plain b******s. No other small team in the league or dare I say Europe would have been able to pull off what Leicester did even if they had the same kind of luck..
Superspurs, Even if those calls that you mentioned superspurs had not gone in their favour, there is no guarantee that they would not have been on first place now. They have a hefty lead now, so big that they could afford to lose their next 2 games and yet win the title.
@Coorperateeye1, confidence breeds confidence. Also, a 2 game lead is really not that big when you compare it to so many previous leads that were lost. For example, City beating United to the title a few years back and us dropping both a 10 point lead and a 7 point lead to you guys when Redknapp and AVB were managing us respectively.

@Tanmay, read my comment man. I am in no way saying that what they are doing is not incredible. Of course no other team their size could pull off a title with just luck.

However, we are not talking about "other teams in their situation". We are talking about them vs. teams like Spurs or Arsenal. If we were more fortunate it could be a totally different situation.

It's actually BECAUSE they are a smaller team that they are often taken less seriously (teams often bunker down against us whereas they don't vs. Leicester) and may get more calls in their favour than bigger teams.

For example, just support for ONE of my arguments above. http://www.myfootballfacts.com/Premier_League_Penalty_Statistics.html

Look at how many penalties they've been awarded vs. every other team, many of whom play just as, if not more, attacking football. They've also been extremely lucky with injuries, none of their key players have been out this season. Also, when has Vardy or Mahrez played even as close to as good as they have this season? There's no doubt that many of their players are having freak seasons that they will never replicate. All of these things add up together and are meaningful over the course of a season.

Now, I'm going to reiterate, I never said that title winners don't need luck or that Leicester haven't done extremely well (don't put words in my mouth I hate when people modify someone else's arguments into something that was never said, which is what you have done here), I'm just saying that in my opinion, they have been more fortunate than most title winning teams. But that is understandable, for such a small team to get to the top, you basically need all the stars to be aligned, which is what has happened this season.

I'm glad that someone other than the traditional top teams has won the league for once, I just wish it didn't happen in the one season that we had a real shot at it.

Sucks that we Spurs fans couldn't even enjoy this ridiculous title run and cheer them on as well.
I hate these Pulis teams!!
+2
And Lloris MIA there...
+2
And Dier injured!
+2
That was too poor. All over, Rover.
+2
To express my thoughts of the season so far, here is a simple Haiku:


Title within reach...
Bloody Leicester just won't stop!
Glory either way.
+7
As expected, Dele Alli won PFA Young Player of the Year while Mahrez won Player of the Year!

Dele is the fifth Spur to win the award after Glenn Hoddle (1979-80), Kyle Walker (2011-12), Gareth Bale (2012-13) and Harry Kane (2014-15).
+1
When I 1st saw Dembele play it was obvious he is really talented. Glad to see him finally stepping up and getting the recognition he deserves.
+3
Was always annoyed we didn't sign him from Fulham. He always tore us up with his dribbles. I figured we didn't sign him because his passing range wasnt so great. But one of his currenr roles for spurs is to switch play so now I'm really not sure why we didn't go in for him harder. Ah well. Great signing by you guys, it is really paying off. I wonder if you will go back for wanyama, who refuses to sign a new deal with soton. I still remember his beast performances with Celtic, especially in CL vs barca. I followed him when we needed CMs and he said he was a utd/scholes fan. I thought maybe we would go for him then but it never happened. At any rate, I'm sure poch could turn him into a real beast given his natural talent and physical qualities.
+1
Apparently United didn't sign him because he was known to be injury prone.
+1
He is fairly injury prone, missed out a bunch of games in earlier seasons with hip issues but I think he's over that now.
Or Utd didnt want him
+1
Kane deserves even more praise than last season. So many young English players get hyped and turn out to not to have the same quality next season or are just one season wonders. I remember seeing him play while a loan a while back and he didn't impress me at all, that's why I was shocked to see Kane scoring goals last season with such quality. He had 21 goals in 34 games last season, now he has 24 goals in 34 games this season. He went from bench warmer, to starter to PFA Young Player of the Year to now possibly getting the golden boot along with possibly the PL title if the Foxes crash out or something. I can't wait to see what he does next season in UCl football. Every academy English player should be looking up to him.
+3
Surprisingly England has 2 inform strikers yet no one give them any chance whatsoever in the euros haha

Moe66, im more curious to see what he does in euro. In ucl he ll score goals if he stays fit,no doubt. teams set up differently in big international tournaments. that would be his some test. for one i want him to score there to shup up rooney fanboys
+1
Truth be told, he didn't have any stand-out technical qualities(even when he started firing early last season),
but I thought this guy could make it because:

1) he had a presence of mind(that LOL-worthy time-wasting kick into row Z at OT)

2)a determination(you could see the look in his eyes when he started tearing up his opponents in Europa & cup competitions last season) fueled by self-belief.
