As the thread says, you just got to love them. I obviously would prefer hat Manchester UNited be up there, but if not them I am rooting for Leicester. And I don't care that they are "accused" of long ball tactics, this is just sour grapes. I think they are playing to their strength, and they are countering brilliantly. and Raniery, he is such a nice and sympathetic person, I would be happy for him.

I agree, good luck to them if they catch the opposition knapping, so what? as long as it is legit

They are brilliant. There is nothing wrong with counter football. The whole "distaste" for long ball football came from the 80ies when teams like Liverpool won a lot of things that way, and also for instance the old Wimbledon. The difference is that in the original kick and rush game the ball was just kicked forwards, and the striker then tried to do something. When teams like Leicester attack, they do it with speed and precision, and the passing is very good at times. If you don't like it, then don't satnd up too high on the pitch, simple...

As a Liverpool fan I sat and watched them this week and when Vardy hit the first goal I was not bothered, I just though good on you, I would love them to win the league.
