    One in the eye for big clubs.
    Still hate em though..let's face it if Vardy wasn't putting the money teams to the sword you would hate the rat.
    He's a ex Red but I'm actually most pleased for Wes Morgan...I don't know why just seems like a solid lad.

    amazing - and gives the rest of football hope - I think the new money will usher in a more level playing field in the premiershite - which is why it is so important we put our faces in the trough and fight like hell to stay there - it is going to get harder and harder to join the club as the cash pot increases

    Incredible achievement by Leicester, not sure about best ever but nobody saw that early in the season, great coup though for them to get Ranieri and it shows what can be achieved with a top manager who can get the very best out of his players.

    Personally I would have liked Tottenham to win it, due to their support, Leicester have the flat pack replica stadium with the sponsors name, fake atmosphere with their bangy stick things, lost a lot of their traditional support from Filbert Street, all a bit false there these days. Leicester Rugby Union team generates more real fervour there but well done to the players they have been superb.

    nice to see Spurs lose it big time against Chelsea. 10 players booked, Dembele heading for a ban for gouging, another heading for a ban for standing on Fabregas's  hand and Pocchetino reverting to South American thug getting involved on the pitch and in the tunnel.

    Well done to Leicester. It just shows you can go into administration one day owing millions, come out the next with the slate wiped clean and your creditors left unpaid, and then pull out the golden ticket in the raffle and get a foreign billionaire to bankroll you to success. Well done indeed.

    But putting aside a pet gripe for a moment, their achievement provides a huge incentive to clubs like ours to stop throwing away points to the likes of Rotherham and MK Dons and just do what it takes to get promoted.

    Eye-watering amounts of money are on offer for PL clubs next year and we still have a great chance of joining the party. Let's not waste it this time.

    Well done Leicester, but I agree with Howard about having their debts (Walkers Stadium) wiped off, even orgnisations like the St Johns Ambulance & local shopkeepers only got 5p in the £. Why don't they revisit and pay their outstanding debts?

    There are 4 current Premiership teams that have benefitted by going into administration - can you name them?

    Have you or a loved one lost their livelihood as a result of a football club in administration not paying what they owed you? Has that club since recently received a huge financial windfall ?

    Putting the administration cheating aside I do think that Leicester winning the league is a great story. It gives all supporters hope that one day we might win the league.
