    Then again, Chelsea getting relegated would probably be funnier.

    Boruc might be the worst goalie in Europe.

    If Mourinho doesn't get fired after this, I don't know what else he can do to lose his job. An embarrassment to lose at home to freaking Bournemouth.

    It would be one thing if it were a flukey win, but Bournemouth fully deserved it.

    Beggars belief how Mourinho won't lose his job, I agree.

    Im not sure how that was offsides. the player who scored was clearly on.

    Actually, it was really close. Didnt realize Courtous came out so far.

    Pretty clear that Mourinho should be fired after this.

    I agree that a Leicester league win would be fantastic.

    The oh great one is apparently not so great. Its amazing how you can go from champs to possibly chumps with the "talent" they have.

    Leicester have a legitimate shot at the title. They'll need a little luck with Mahrez-Vardy needing to stay healthy, but they've looked pretty dangerous in the games I've seen them.

    Pretty clear that their top two players need to be healthy for that to even be possible. Their fitness level is absurd though. Only team that consistently can run at 100% for a full 90 minutes. They don't ever seem to be concerned with possession, but when they get the ball they take off up the field and just shred defenses.

    Leicester will show their ability to stay in the top four through the Christmas period. Their depth isn't great and they still have some hard matches to come.

    They could do it, but most of the early season wonders fall off through the schedule when it compresses and they can't compete with the depth of the usual suspects.

    Leicester have been touched by an angel to not have any serious injuries. Can't continue, can it?

    Thinking a bit about United, the fans have every right to give LVG stick. Starting Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, and Fellaini at home against an injury ravaged West Ham is negative. Memphis was good when he came on. And really, that 21 shot total flatters United. Like 15 of those were blocked by West Ham defenders.

    Reid is one of the top defenders in the premiership, but doesn't get any of the press. For you Arsenal fans, Jenkinson has been trash and was rightly dropped. Tomkins, a natural CB, has been way better than him at right back.

    If Chelsea can go an entire season with no injures despite no rotation with more games played, then yeah, sure.

    But mentioning Chelsea and luck gets your posts ripped to shreds.

    It was clearly offside not that I'm complaining.

    Hopefully, Mou continues which I think he will.

    I think Murray was even with whichever Chelsea defender was not in the box.

    But this Bournemouth result shows anything is possible!

    Which, of course, also means you being spot on is possible.

    Liverpool had four more points with Hodgson at this stage of the season than Chelsea this year with Mourinho. Not joking.

    Everyone admits they were lucky to not have any serious injuries, it's that you follow it up with absurd statements about how that diminishes their accomplishment, as if they didn't deserve to win it because other clubs had injuries and they didn't. You might as well be Arsenal's minister of propaganda with the the constant anti-Chelsea focus of your posts.

    Chelsea winning the champions league in 2012 was luck. Winning a full ****ing league isn't.
