You have to laugh on here sometimes. It takes me back to the season Leicester won the title and people said it would all be over by Christmas then they said they must all be on drugs and finally that other teams were letting them win. Leicester won it by 10 points and Rainieri was still a mug. Laugh

It always amuses me when people assume that last years form in any sport is much guide to this year. Japan and England Rugby, now Leicester. The form to look at is the last results.
Report tobermory October 26, 2019 6:05 PM BST
The OP is saying he thinks Leicester are a decent bet at 100/1.

And people responding with "ah, but Liverpool and City ( both around Evens) are more likely to win"

Crazy

I don't agree with that generally. A team that starts a season performing much better or much worse than the previous season will usually see their results fall more in line with the last year eventually. Six game form results are often misleading. If there has been a big change in personell then the change of fortune can be sustainable. Perhaps that is the case for Leicester with Rodgers.

One rather big difference between this season and 2016 though.

That was the poorest season for many and Leics won with the lowest points total in all but one of the last 20 odd years.

This Liverpool team is different gravy - can't see Leicester finishing any closer than they are now and more likely double that behind come May.

4th lowest, United in 2011, 2001 and 99  less than Leicester's 81 points.

imo this Liverpool team are 1 key injury away from losing the big lead they have, mostly Van Dijk, there's no such replacement for a him.

any  advances on 68 anyone ? Silly
Report darren_discombobulates_sports December 8, 2019 10:45 PM GMT
In seasons where it's been 20 team leagues, 38 games and 3 points for a win, I think 68 would be the lowest points total for runners up, but go further back when it was 22/24 team leagues which it was for many years then there may have been quite a few runners up with less than 68  even with the 2-4 extra games as it would have been 2 points for a win rather than 3 til 1981.

Without looking it up I'd be surprised if a title winning team ever got 68pts under 2 for a win, never mind runners up, so it's hardly worth comparing that era for pts totals.

Despite all of that Leicester did win the title by 10 points, so should they have won it by even more?

Once. Liverpool set the record at 68 points in 1979 (and that was 42 games not 38).

You can't really compare anything pre-1981 to post-1981.

you sort of can if you relay all of those league tables to 3 points for a win, though of course they were 42 game seasons

Norwich City produced a magnificent all-round display to inflict Manchester City's first Premier League defeat since January at an ecstatic Carrow Road.

The Canaries were missing eight players but made light of those injuries and took full advantage of a performance from the reigning champions that was careless in the extreme and characterised by chaotic defending.

Next two games are the make or break games, Leicester play Man City away, then Liverpool at home, win both, with Liverpool in Qatar, and Leciester would be 4 points behind, albeit 1 game more played, would put pressure onto LiverpoolGrin

they play Everton mid week in the cup, would be surprised if they didn't rest the first team in preparation.

The media keep telling me that this team is better than their title winning side.   Not sure about that.  Ndidi is good but he's no kante.  Maddinson is alright but Mahrez was an absolute wizard for that season.  Anyway the title winning side was a seasoned group the present side is quite young.  Give them a year or two

Leicester were 100/1 then down to 20/1 so a good ride whilst it lasted, for sure no chance now but how tipping a team in second place with over 25 games left meant it was a nonsense thread is beyond me, you know they were even as high as 5000/1 once upon a time!

no need to worry the title is 100% Liverpool's, not a jinx it's just much much harder to lose it from here than win it, it would have be the biggest collapse in history 13 points and game in hand, the only thing you need to worry about is whether Liverpool can match the Arsenal invincibles which is a real possibilityShocked
