    Even though my gut instinct is to dislike the Foxes, I have to say I'm chuffed they stayed up.

    Mainly because they were so dominant in their promotion season, if they didn't survive it was hard to see who could. What hope for other teams would that leave.

    Sorry Burnley didn't survive but glad QPR are down.

    Understand what your saying.
    I'm not one to dislike many players but Nugent is one and their manager also gets my goat.

    Agree with all that Purps, especially re QPR. They were not gracious in victory at all after the play offs..even better if they are fined the 60 mill!!

    Exactly how I feel. I don't like the Foxes, of course. But I don't hate them with the same brand of venom I feel for The Scum or Leeds. It really would have been deeply disheartening to see a second division champion that rampantly superior move up and fall flat on their faces.

    On the other hand it would have kept that smug grin off Lineker's face on MOTD.
