Could the Impossible Dream Come True at the Theater of Dreams

So, the season started with Leicester City with a new 'uninspired choice' of a manager after firing a man that saved them from relegation having odds of 5000-1 to win the title. During the season, they have only lost to two teams(Arsenal twice and Liverpool)  but everyone still was saying... Leicester can't win the league!! Well, today everyone could look like numpties. A Leicester City win at Old Trafford would make them champions for the first time in their history. I know they have other chances to win it but it could become squeaky bum time if they don't get it done right away
Even though it is against my beloved, I wouldn't mind a win for the Foxes. That would hurt United's Top Four spot but because of LVG... I don't care!

Swansea v Liverpool and Southampton v City also on the docket

Don't know why I am up so early on my last day of Spring Break... talk about a numpty!!


Teams are in the tunnel in a rainy south Wales

Klopp has made 8 changes from Thursday night's body blow of a result

England's striker Sturbridge didn't play a minute of that game but is playing with the scrubs today... is he being booted out of the door by Jurgen?


The sides

Swansea XI: Fabianski, Rangel, Amat, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Cork, Sigurdsson, Routledge, Montero, Ayes.


Liverpool XI: Ward, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Smith, Stewart, Chirivella, Ibe, Ojo, Coutinho, Sturridge.

With the scores from yesterday Newcastle are out of the drop zone for the first time in ages.
I still think Sunderland are favorites to stay up

So, one of these guys will be Champions this time next year!!

Newcastle can get 39 points
Sunderland can get 41 points
Norwich can get 40

So... West Brom and Bournemouth are mathematically safe
A point today would make Swansea safe
Palace still with a bit of worry

We're off at the Liberty

The Championship could be decided for the FIFTH time on Premier League history

Only THREE of United's THIRTEEN Premier League championships have happened at Old Trafford.
They won it at home in 1999 with a come from behind 2-1 victory to Spurs, in 2008 United drew 0- 0 with Arsenal to win the league and then in 2013 a 3-0 win v Villa to become Champs
There was other title decider was in 02 when Arsenal won the league at OT with a 1-0 win

I was going through the years to see the span of years when there have been different champions in each year

2016 Leicester ?
2015 Chelsea
2014 City
2013 United

A span of four years with four different champions

1990 Liverpool
1991 Arsenal
1992 Leeds United
1993 Man United

A span of four years with four different champions

1970 Everton
1971 Arsenal
1972 Derby
1973 Liverpool
1974 Leeds

A span of five years with five different champions

1966 Liverpool
1967 Man United
1968 Man City
1969 Leeds
1970 Everton
1971 Arsenal
1972 Derby

A span seven years with seven different champions!

I did - I liked your example of the different eras of a certain span of years with different champions. It would make it seem that the Premiership is a more competitive league than it is usually given credit for. I wonder if any of the other European leagues have had a string of champions like that recently. I doubt it.

I wonder - because of their great advantages this season has been having to play only around 40 matches. They didn't have decent runs in either cups so it was 38 league matches and one or two others. Next season will be very different. They'll be stretched.

According to the Guardian, William Hill took 25 bets for Leicester winning the title at 5000-1, the largest stake was £20, with a pay out of £100,000 for a customer in...Manchester. Hmmmm?

This result means that Liverpool can only get to 64 points

A reminder that three of us, including yours truly, chose Leicester for the drop (indeed, I picked them to finish dead last!) at the beginning of the season. It's been suggested that I drop points for those who picked them for the drop, but I won't be doing that.

I am proud to say that I did not pick the Foxes for the drop nor Claudio for the axe. I read UWS's comment about the Gunners clinching the title at OT. I think it was a midweek match in May and the Gunners won 0-1 with a header by Sylvain Wiltord. Is that correct

Me either, but this is more of what I have been expecting from United. Kante lost a rare tackle and United scored a typical Foxes goal by scoring on the counter, Lingard went on a solo run and found Valencia down the right and a collector's item as Valencia put in a superb cross. A great dummy by Rashord and side footed pass was karate chopped past Kasper.

It has, indeed. And this league is going to be even more popular next year, with loads more bandwagoners jumping on board.

There is King Eric... mentioned him earlier

King Eric is the stands looking like Rumpelstiltskin.

I wonder what King Eric makes of everything. I'm sure he's not short a conversation or two

I think United will fizzle out as the game goes on
They played like this at Wembley in the first half and were CRAP in the second

A minute of stoppage time

One minute of added time

Half time

This score is ok for Leicester but I think they'll win it

9:51 AM

It's 1-1 at the end of a fascinating and very even first half.

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I sure hope they do. It's nicely poised for them to do so

Fellaini's elbow... twice... he should be banned for three games... out of for the rest of the season... sadly available for Cup Final

9:56 AM

I think it was a pen for Leicester

Souness agrees with me about Fellaini getting a ban

10:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with both, UWS. I think Hair Bear will be banned . Ten times worse than anything Dellla " Muhammed" Alli did. Sneaky foul by Rojo, who should have been red faced.

We're not the only UNited fans rooting for the Foxes. There is also Rory McIlroy.

Shearer thinks ban will happen too

We're off in the second half

United not attacking the SE... bloody LVG

The second half is underway from OT

Did United lose the toss.

Can Leicester do it? It should be fascinating. It's great to see United giving them a match.

Blind tackles for a Foxes corner.,

Another free header for Morgan as he heads into the ground and straight to De Gea off the corner from Fuchs.

They must have - they always play toward the Stratford End in the second half when they win the toss.

10:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Doesn't usually matter
Respect from other teams allow teams to attack their favorite end unless weather is a factor
I think it is Bloody LVG


Another header won inside the box... United's defenders are shocking

10:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I don't want LVG to get a lifeline and get CL but I want United to be top team!!!

10:09 AM

A wayward karate chop that was high and wide.

10:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

They need players but who would come with no CL

10:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

United not starting like they did in the first...just like last week!

What is done in the dressing room?

10:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If the Spuds lose tomorrow will they be in danger of fighting off Citeh and the Gunners to avoid third or fourth place?

10:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not sure. I think United players nmmay have run out of steam. It took evrything just to stay level with the Foxes.

10:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

There have been a lot of conspiracy theories about Chelsea wanting to beat Spurs tomorrow particularly to prevent them from being champions. But are they good enough to beat them? I don't know.

10:11 AM

The Foxes inches away from taking the lead

10:11 AM

Another header won inside the box!!
