Did anyone have a bet on Leicester at the start of the season?

 

I wish. The odds of them winning the league at the start of the season were something in the region of 5000/1. There was a story on the internet recently about a man who had a bet for them to be top of the league at Christmas who pocketed £10,000. I really hope they win the league this year, it's just the kind of kick in the pants the premier league needs.

Me too. Bookies are offering a cash out of £3,000 to a bloke who stands to win £25,000 on a £5.00 (little drunken) flutter. He's sticking it out.

Remember Gary Linekar showing the table twice when they were top after 2 or 3 games because he didn't think he'd see it again.

Hope they do it, not been a great season, some very poor games. As you said, a good kick in the pants for the 'glamour clubs'.

It's nice that Leicester are doing well and it would be nice if they win the premier league, but I think too much is being made of it. It's one of the world's richest clubs, with an established manager, good proven players and a project with the goal to enter in the Champions League. Their good performance doesn't prove money isn't everything in football, it proves that with enough money any well-run club can challenge for a major title. What I like most about it is that they kept players like Wes Morgan and Jamie Vardy, who have proven their talent when otherwise they might have never been in the elite.

Yes....my home team Raith Rovers scuppered Rangers making sure of the league today, by getting draw in the last minute. They will  have to wait to try elsewhere now for a win.

The Euros were entertaining but I'm very glad the footy season has started again. :) Although maybe my team (Liverpool) playing Arsenal on tv wasn't the best match to have on Sky...a few weeks after I cancelled my Sky Sports subscription. :)

I'm still overwhelmed about last night's Barcelona win, it was outstanding. Those players showed immense character and never gave up when everyone would understand it. Has anyone else watched the match?

That Liverpool comeback last night almost killed me, I haven't been that tense in the last 10 minutes of a game for years.

I don't support Spurs so the nerves were fine but it was another crazy game. I have to admit that I wanted Ajax to win because I don't like finals involving 2 teams in the same league but it should be a great final anyway.

So much for Brexit!  The irony..... There are a few Spurs fans where I work, so they're happy.
