Aaah that's better.

Good result for Newcastle today but too little too late I fear.
It's all sky's fault. Personally I'm a big fan of Friday night games. Been some brilliant ones in the championship this season. If i'm right I think that there's going to be a few in the premier league next season. Saturday early kick off / sunday early kick off's are terrible though. Shouldn't be allowed.

I hope Newcastle & Sunderland stay up this season. Would be nice to have all 3 north east teams up there next season. and it's an easy 12 points for us! :wink:

unfortunately its near impossible for both to stay up - it will either be both going down or one or the other plus Norwich

Piss poor from Arsenal again. Obviously Wenger can't motivate these clowns anymore.
Big changes needed in the summer. Starting with the manager.

Best thing that has ever happened to the Premier League! The big spending clubs blown away. Amazing and fully deserved.

I've no real interest in any football really but am willing to follow the hype that fill the back pages over the season and like most of the impartial country have been willing Leicester to stick it to the big-boys ..so we'll done LCFC ...

Also , and I know it's easy to be wise after the event but there was a period about 6-8 years ago that I made a habit of putting a couple of quid on three or four of the rank outsiders to win the Premier league often at odds of 1500/1 and 1000/1 just for the devilment of doing it , never ever expecting it to happen ...but today's result just shows it can happen.

It's been interesting to see the bookies tempting the (at the time) potentially lucky punters either to fully or partially buying back the bets that were placed at half+ odds as the season progressed into its close

Always had a soft spot for Leicester as I spent a year there as an exchange student back in 2000. What an amazing story. Well done lads - richly deserved :clap:

Congrats foxes!
Least likely sports odds to ever go on and win it I think? Some guy bet 10p on them winning at the start of the season lol.
