    Nil, if United were to win and Chelsea were to lose it wouldn’t be all done and dusted and Leicester would need to beat Everton or Chelsea personally I wouldn’t want to be tempting fate.

    I expect both teams to draw. Two more games that have fallen at just the wrong time in the context of the season.
    Hope Leicester do win it now though, otherwise it will be seen as a title race which was undermined by the actions of an inept official.
    Nothing could be worse than that for football, especially given the fairy story element of the narrative. The conspiracy theories will go on for ever…

    red blood: R, let’s hope so mate via a Chelsea victory at the Bridge.? Forest were the last Midlands team to win the title back in 1978.

    Going to allow my 11yo son to get up in the middle of the night to watch it. Being in Aus means I’ve mostly been up until 3am for most of our games this season. Seeing as history could be made this weekend I’m giving him Monday off school so we can watch it together

    “Once in a lifetime this can happen. Only once in every 50 years a little team with less money can be the biggest. These are very special circumstances this year. The big teams haven’t shown the consistency you’d expect while the smaller teams have done just that, from August to April.

    Now it is important to maintain the same consistency in May.

    Now is the real chance to win the title. Next season you never know. This is once in a lifetime. Next season United, Chelsea,City and Arsenal will be at the top.” Claudio Ranieri 29/04/2016.

    red blood: R, I think they’ll be in the mix mate even if Claudio seemingly doesn’t providing Klopp has a decent summer in the transfer market.

    My money though right now though would go on a City title win.

    Redblood-Leicester will be celebrating not the midlands in general…Where strong rivalries exist.
    999- Ranieri says exactly what he should to motivate his players. You can bet your boots he wont be saying that next season…ha ha

    Well, I’ve still got my Topps Tiles sponsored away kit from when we were in Division 1. I took my then 3 year old son to his first game to see Leicester play Colchester. I was also witness to THAT hattrick by Bergkamp at Filbert Street, which still to me is the loudest ground I have ever been to. It’s not like we have had a lot to shout out about over the years for you to realise we are here, but we’ve always turned out to the games whichever league we’ve played in. We filled our stadia throughout those years, even when we went bust. Chelsea’s support only grew when Gullit came in, otherwise they were not selling out consistently before then. To compare our popularity to that of Chelsea’s is quite naive of what is actually happening here.

    I guess it does nine
    What’s going on at Chelsea, Courtois not happy etc, Conte happy for him to leave etc doesn’t sound right to me what’s going on behind the scenes.

    metaxa, I think there’s probably some legs to the Courtois story seemingly Real are keen which suggest there’s no £30m buy out in the De Gea contract because Chelsea will probably be looking for more than £30m for Courtois and De Gea is the much better keeper.

    Seemingly Courtois and Lollichon the Chelsea goalkeeping Coach don’t get on but primarily I think it’s down to the fact that Courtois fancies a move to Real and back to Madrid and his girlfriend is Spanish too and obviously would prefer to be in Madrid. And of course next season there’s no CL football at Chelsea.

    There were seemingly 3 unsettled players at Chelsea Courtois, Costa and Hazard. Hazard seems to have been talked around by Conte but I suspect Courtois will go and that Costa is still 50/50 because he hasn’t really settled in London but allegedly Conte doesn’t want to lose him but won’t stand in Courtois’s way. Time will tell on the both of them.

    I suspect that there is also a natural level of uncertainty at the moment too with Mourinho gone, Hiddink in temporary charge but about to leave and Conte not yet arriving officially although he has been backwards and forwards. I would expect everything to settle down a bit once Conte arrives permanently. Cheers 999
