    • I admire your restraint in not putting the boot into Fat Sam as much as he deserves. Taking the high road and all that.   On the other hand, you can never put enough boot into the fat fuck. I'd say you should do better next time, but hopefully that's the last we see of him.
    • Remember that period covers them selling Stones, Lukaku, Barkley, Gueye and Lookman for about £180-200 million between them.
    • That may be so, although I’d say a big Chelsea win is the best outcome, purely on the basis that Leicester are more likely to drop points vs Spurs than Chelsea against a Villa side in terrible form. That means drawing one of our last two wouldn’t necessarily be fatal; if we won the other, Leicester would have to beat Spurs to finish 4th.
    • According to Crackle the fans protesting is the reason they lost their last two games.   https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/57143621
    • From the Mirror.     Thomas Tuchel’s Blues are seeking revenge after Brendan Rodgers’ men came out on top at Wembley with a 1-0 win. Victory would take Chelsea above the Foxes by one point, still needing a win from their final league game at Aston Villa to confirm a top four finish.   That would leave Leicester and Liverpool to battle for the other spot, and they both currently sit on +21 goal difference, boasting near identical scoring records. We could then be in for a frankly bonkers finish.   If the Blues were to win 1-0 on Tuesday night and the Foxes triumph 3-0 at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday - all while the Redmen win 3-2 at Burnley and beat Crystal Palace 2-1 - Leicester and Liverpool would then have identical points and scoring records (not just in terms of goal difference but for goals scored and conceded, too).  If somehow that scenario occurs, the sides would be split by their head-to-head record. This would favour Liverpool as they beat the FA Cup winners 3-0 at Anfield before losing 3-1 at the King Power in February. That 4-3 aggregate score would be enough to get the better of the Foxes.   Three points would see Leicester guarantee themselves Champions League football due to Chelsea thus being unable to amass 69 points, which Rodgers’ side would already be sitting on heading into the finale. That would mean Liverpool still have to worry about themselves, though, knowing two wins is also more points than Tuchel’s men could muster. Chelsea would have to win their remaining game at Aston Villa and hope the Redmen slip up at Turf Moor or against Palace at Anfield. Both Liverpool and the Blues could finish on 67 points, too, if Klopp and co pick up four points and Chelsea come out victorious at Villa Park following a midweek defeat. Goal difference would then come into it, with Tuchel’s side needing to overcome whatever the Redmen do in their final two outings.   A point a piece would leave neither Tuesday’s hosts nor Leicester safe inside the top four, making for a grandstand final day. Stalemate at the Bridge would leave both sides hunting for a win on the final day, with Rodgers and his former employers, Liverpool, qualifying if all three sides end with a win and the Redmen beat Burnley on Wednesday. If Leicester drew at Tottenham Hotspur after drawing on Tuesday, the Blues would sneak in on goal difference - regardless of by how wide of a margin their win in the Midlands could be on Sunday. In short, a draw would best suit Klopp’s outfit on the balance of things.   Oh, and West Ham and Spurs would need goal difference to separate them for fourth place in the unlikely event that Chelsea lose both of their games and Liverpool only manage one or zero points - while the two outsiders win their remaining fixtures - as each aren’t mathematically out of the picture yet.  With so many potential outcomes, only one thing is guaranteed: drama.
