    Perhaps we could get knocked out by Barca next season…if we’re going down the Arsenal route to mediocrity… 🙂

    Have to agree Wasplicker, half of me is a bit annoyed obviously, but what a story, what an achievement, truly legendary…can’t wait to see what they can do in the Champions League next season, POT 1 as well! Might even watch the draw for once!

    I think to still try and keep it alive, Spurs would have to ensure they avoid defeat at the Bridge and Leicester would have to lose to United.

    Remember, the goal difference is in Spurs’ favour although thereafter, Spurs would HAVE to win their final 2 games, and Leicester would have to lose theirs.

    With that permutation, it’s basically implying that from now onwards, Leicester would have to lose everything.

    Could make things interesting if United did win, Spurs win, and Everton pick up an unlikely draw, but ultimately, I don’t expect the Foxes to just capitulate all of a sudden.

    Banjo, I appreciate the disappointment with the way things are mate, but you’ve had a season to be proud of mate because of the obvious in ensuring CL football for next season.

    Just gotta hang onto your Gaffer – you’ve got yourself a good un there not to mention, some top quality players who have gelled and come leaps and bounds.

    Cheers

    For Spurs to win it now they will need to win all three games and Leicester not win one of their next 3 games.

    I think it will go to Monday at least as I don’t think Leicester will win at OT but Spurs look to have lost Dier and probably Delli Ali to a 3 match ban for the punch.

    SkyBet sums it up best

    Leicester 1/20 on
    Spurs 12/1 against.

    But it’s still not over until it’s over.

    WBA did the same against us too. They must be the most frustrating team to coach against. When they played us they had about 2 or 3 chances in total and scored two. We had countless chances and couldn’t put them away. We both lost points to WBA this season.

    Foxy… can’t really complain about last night (well, I can…), we should have had the game sown up before half-time. let alone the 73rd minute, I think every man and his dog could see it coming and by the end of it, WBA deserved their point at the end… bastards! 😉

    I don’t think people shouldn;t underestimate what Tony Pulis is capable of. Look what happened to Liverpool when they went to Selhurst Park. We thought we we in for a goal-blitz and a spell or 10 minutes or so in the second-half changed the entire dynamics.

    I think Leicester will either win at Old Trafford or draw. We have the quality to beat them but I don’t think we will match their hunger because they are playing some really intense football at the minute.

    Even if Leicester lose at Old Trafford they still will wrap this title up. It’s basically wrapped up and it’s a brilliant achievement by Ranieri and his team.

    Hatters, it’s 75% I would say of the tipping scales in favour of the Blue Army.

    It really depends too on Spurs winning or avoiding any sort of defeat at the Bridge next Monday from a supposed Leicester defeat at Old Trafford. Jamie Vardy would by then have returned and unless Everton put on a solid display at the King Power, there would effectively be really only one winner.

    I can see at best the Foxes picking up a draw leaving Spurs in definite need of ALL 3 points.

    Just as knotter pointed out, many a dream has come to grief on the rocks of Mr pulis’s
    catennacio……He does love to spoil a party. While it’s true that Spuds hit the woodwork a few times, the sandwellians also could have scored at least 3. I thought Gardner in particular looked a little off form though he wasn’t occupying his usual role to be fair to him.
    So, answer to the question ‘yes, but can they do it on a mild Monday night at White Hope lane against a Pulis 11?’ Errr…………. No.

    banjo, Leicester still need 3 points so it’s not totally impossible for Spurs to win all of their three games if Leicester were to lose at OT which is also not impossible and Spurs were to win at the Bridge ( wash my mouth out?) then you never know.

    United were celebrating winning the title at Sunderland and then Aguero scored that goal in the 95th minute.Stranger things have happened.

    But as I said the odds refect the reality of the situation and although the Fat Lady might not be singing quite yet she is warming up.?

    Personally I think Leicester will sew it up at home v Everton.

    Warming up? She’s taken a big fat deep breath and if you listen carefully, you can just about hear something to do with a Vardy Party…all done bar the bunting my cyber chum! Feel free to bung 50 quid on the Spuds if you want, but I’ll be drowning my sorrows down the pub!

    If Liverpool can throw it away the way we did in 1989 when we could even afford a defeat by 1 goal, then there’s hope for Tottenham and others.

    That, along with Liverpool v Blackburn 1995, and the Aguero moment is what makes this league the greatest imo, and a sport that is loved by myself and many.
