Fantastic stuff from Leicester. I really am hoping they win the league as it will be a huge 'gob in the eye' for all of the over paid cunts the PL has.

This is what football is about, IMO.

Oh yeah, COYS !


Great table right now, with Spurts and Leicester right at the top... Leicester really played a sofisticated game against Man City.. really transforming them form "the small team that is this year's surprise' to proper title contenders..

Interesting point raised on Radio 4 this morning. If Everton ere to be taken over for £200MM, that would Blean that 14 Premier League clubs would be owned by American people/consortia. They could then use the 2/3rd majority rule to get rid of relegation.

Thereby killing off the english game forever. Maybe once the old-guard has died off at the FA, but I can't see anything like that happening for a long time.

What's stopping them doing that now, regardless of the nationality of owners? They're pretty much all foreign nationals, aren't they? Plus if they were going to do it it would have been done by now. Who wouldn't vote in self-interest?

The general consensus in America I've found is that they love the promotion/relegation system and wish their sports did it.

Could they do it before the end of the season, please!

I'm not worried about us (didn't know I played for them etc) going down, but just to be sure I'll vote yes too.

Poor Villa didn't stand a chance today against a far superior side. It's almost like they're leagues apart.

Imagine how much the gap will widen between the premiership and the championship though. Probably not the right time to mention it. Soz
