That's pretty much exactly what the Foxes needed. 

 

I Watched the Bayern Munich Borussia Dortmund match this morning. Probably one of the best scoreless matches I've ever seen. That goalie for Dortmund basically kept BVB's slim title hopes alive. They probably still won't win though. They're down five points with only a few matches left, and Munich's schedule is pretty cakewalk the rest of the way.

I have thought for awhile that the top 20 or so clubs in europe should just break away and form their own league. There would finally be parity in the domestic leagues instead of only 3 or 4 teams winning the title EVER.

Initially, wrong reply to ICTknight.

That said, "if it don't make dollars, it don't make sense".

 

The Europe "top teams" has been done before with the richest teams, but some clubs bitched when they were left out while domestically successful. 

 

It was the G14, then added four more for the G18.

The largest clubs need to keep making money.  The 2nd tier is an afterthought.

A goal down. A man down. Three points. Liverpool's goals came off of a goalie howler (poetic justice) and a questionable 90' + 4' penalty given. I'd be a lot more sympathetic if this wasn't against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Well, in the last years, Liverpool stopped as the number one in England. Manchester United took his place in England and in Europe. And now, Liverpool can only dream to play Europe League.

 

Brilliant thing is Leicester City. AWESOME!

Poetic justice? Because you have a bad goalkeeper yourself? That's not how it works.

Yeah, poor choice of words. What I meant to say was that it was nice to finally have a goalie error go in our favor.

That's the softest penalty ever called. He flat dived once he couldn't turn the corner. And I think Alexi Lalas has had too many concussions. He says stiff just for attention rather than because it's correct.

I'm a Liverpool fan and that was a terrible penalty call.

Something can both be a dive and a foul.

 

See how hockey often calls offsetting minors with embellishment (and often tripping, etc.) — we need more of that in soccer.

 

I think I understand what you mean. There can be contact from the defender (foul) and the attacking player also make the most of it or start to go to ground before the challenge is made (feign/dive). However, the way the laws of the game are written, any attempt to deceive the referee into thinking you have been fouled is unsporting behaviour and an indirect free kick must be awarded to the other team and a yellow card issued i.e. a dive outweighs a foul. They are not equal and offsetting, if you will.

 

That's in the rules of the game as opposed to my opinion.

 

Laws of the game

Law 12: Fouls

Rafa Benitez will reportedly be appointed the manager of Newcastle before the team's trip to Leicester on Monday.  From Real Madrid to the Championship in one season...

Zizou isn't doing bettet than Benítez in Madrid. He only got the player's loyalty, but Madrid is still weak in defense. They are thinking in being European Champions, but the reality is their season is very disappoiting.
