OK. After all the negative talk about Villa, I have backed them at $6.50 with TAB - promotion gives you a bonus bet if they lead at any time but lose. Could have got $7 with Ladbrokes.

They are away to Southampton who I wouldn't describe as "top flight". Southampton have lost their last two and struggled against Sunderland before that.

There arrives a point of "good value" in any match up and I think $7 is beyond this point.

Well I get my bonus bet - but feel totally dissatisfied   :lol:

Lescott is a top class player who seems to get injured a lot. If Villa can keep him on the pitch they can turn things around.

...and a hat-trick to Mahrez away at Swansea ends Jamie Vardy's run.

Fancy not having a couple of lousy dollars on the $5,000 available about Leicester even after they had started the season off pretty well.  :slaphead:

Foxes back on top of the table with a few tough ones coming up in December.

If Bournemouth were somehow able to win later on, then Chelsea would only be 3 points out of the relegation zone.

They did and it's 2 points off the zone for Chelsea.

The Leicester story just keeps getting better. Only lost once in 15 games - only side not to be beaten away - most away goals scored - most total goals scored.  :clap2:

Chelsea H - Everton A - Liverpool A - Manchester City H  coming up - really hope they can get a couple of results out of that lot.  :x:

Hope they can keep the squad together.

I am old enough to remember the great Leicester players who were sold off for enormous amounts - Gary Lineker, Alan Smith and Emille Heske (Heske was a record mid season signing when Liverpool poached him).

Reality is that the player managers of Vardy and Mahrez are already probably shopping them around. It sucks.

This team is really starting to believe in themselves.

Vardy is probably England's #1 striker now that Rooney is getting on a bit. Mahrez is a freak - where did they get him from? Danny Drinkwater is being talked about as being added to the England squad. Ulloa would probably be a starter in two thirds of the teams in the comp but he is kept out. Have always had a high opinion of Marc Albrighton. Schmeichel has been magnificent in goal. kane is a good foil for Mahrez in the midfield. And then you have players like Schlupp, Huth, Okazaki and many others. If they continue to believe in themselves then they will go well.

That was very satisfying to watch Bournemouth knock over United.

Crowd was 11,000 - that is the capacity of their home ground in Dorset. United's home ground capacity is 75,000.

The commentators were saying that Bournemouth's squad is worth 30 million quid. United is 385.

They have knocked over Chelsea and United in their last two games now.

Chelsea travel up to the midlands to play comp leaders Leicester on Monday - think that is Tuesday morning our time. If they lose they will be even closer to the relegation zone - not that anyone would derive any pleasure from that   :lol:

If Leicester wins the premiership, it has to rank as one of the greatest upsets in sports history.

However, everyone is waiting for the wheels to fall off so the next two games are crucial for them. Max points will almost mean they are home.

I could have got $5,000 about them at the beginning of the season.

Imagine the "bet back" position you would be in if you had a lousy $2 on them  :(

9 games to go 5 points clear. The dream is well and truly alive.

They have a really decent run of games in that last 9 too.

Even Tottenham being second is a bit of a surprise but they have been coming on for 18 months and are usually a top 6 team.

Has been such a fascinating season.

Go the Foxes.

Finding it very hard to get my head around it all.  :x:  :wacko:

Massive game tonight regarding the relegation zone.

Sunderland v Newcastle. 
With the Canaries winning last night, they move 3 points out of the danger zone.
However looks like Sunderland as an extra game still to play.

Then next round the Norwich plays Newcastle.  2 losses for Newcastle in the 2 games - could seal their fate for the season.  A draw in this game would be better for Sunderland.

Fingers crossed all the Leicester players who are now being called up for International duty across the world next week, get through and get home unscathed.  :x:

2015/2016 Aston Villa team are clearly the worst team to play a season in the premier league.

I have no confidence they will avoid relegation next season in the championship.

Dropped two points at home this morning due to Vardy being sent off.  :rant:

8 points clear as it stands with Spurs to play at Stoke tomorrow - Go Stoke!

On the flipside that 90rh min Penalty with 10 men could be a vital point they picked up.

and with the draw this morning the title is all but done.

Leicester need 1 win from the last 3 games and it is theirs.

Truly amazing story.

Truly amazing story.

I won't believe it until it happens.

Last 3 games are Man Utd at Old Trafford, Everton at home then Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Wouldn't call those easy.

Spurs have to win all 3 and hope Leicester lose. They have Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this week, followed by Southampton at White Hart then finish off with what could be the "game of games" as described last night - an away trip to Newcastle facing fanatical Goerdies trying to avoid relegation.

The relegation battler appears to be 3 sides and two positions - Newcastle, Norwich and Sunderland.

Norwich appear to be headed back because they have to travel to Emirates to play Arsenal then host Man Utd before finishing off against Watford.

So for mine it will be one of the two fanatical clubs, Newcastle or Sunderland - their remaining games seem of a similar difficulty.

PP7 did you hear Hazard in the post match interview last week. Chelsea are determined to stop fellow Londeners Tottenham getting the title.

I think you might see a big parked bus at Stamford Bridge this week in an attempt to ensure the draw that wins Leicester the title.   :biggrin:

Even if that does not work Chelsea play Leicester in the final game.

Didn't think of that. Of course Chelsea would love the opportunity to stop their rich neighbours from winning the title.

And as sobig says, they might get a final opportunity to deliver if the first one fails   :biggrin:

Hoping that the FA Cup semi win will distract United this weekend. We have a fair record at Old Trafford.

Palace playing United in the FA Cup final which is a repeat of the 1990 final when United won. Alan Pardew, Palace coach, played for Palace that day against United who were coached by Sir Alex. You can see Pardew in the background third from the left, and a much younger Sir Alex is leading out United.

What a game. Like the old Manly v Wests Rugby League games complete with violence.

Try and catch a replay if you didn't watch. Goes on after the match is finished.

Crowd were singing "There's only one Ranieri"   :lol:

The miracle has occurred. Awesome result. Great to see.

Going to have to catch the game when you see 9 yellow cards for Tottenham and most after the Chelsea equalizer I'm guessing the Tottenham players weren't reacting well to losing the title.
