Totti: ‘Well done Ranieri!’
By Football Italia staff

Roma captain Francesco Totti congratulates Claudio Ranieri on winning the Premier League.

The former Giallorossi Coach has led Leicester City to the title with two games to spare, with the remarkable feat made mathematically certain by Tottenham’s draw with Chelsea yesterday.

“Congratulations boss,” Totti wrote on his official website.

“You’ve really been great, you deserve all of this satisfaction!”

Ranieri is a native of Rome, and has supported the Lupi since childhood.

He took over as Coach in September 2009 and led Roma to the brink of the Scudetto, ultimately being pipped by Inter on the last day.

During that season, Totti scored 25 goals in 31 games across all competitions.

Dull. Dull. Dull.

 

City lacked incisiveness in the final third, and for a team in need of a goal for well over half the game, they spent a lot of time standing around when they had the ball.

Arsenal can end up in 2nd. Or in 5th.
Leicester can win the league by 13 points.
Man U can overtake city and knock them out of the CL.
West Ham or Southampton can end in 4th.

The fans ahve gone mad.

And then ManU go and lose to West Ham. Their chance at 4th and CL just got a little bit harder.

 

West Ham assured of European place and Arsenal assured of CL spot.

ManU has just facepalm.gif so hard this season. Can't even believe it.

If I weren't a Chelsea supporter, with their absolute train wreck of a season, I might even be able to indulge in a little schadenfraude at ManU supporters' expense.

 

Alas, we look set for a 9th place finish.

 

And WTF with Guus fielding a side at the weekend that featured 10 of the same 11 that started on opening day, the ones most responsible for this clusterf*** of a season??

 

Apart from the idea that that was Chelsea's strongest side, I didn't get his argument that he needed to field the strongest side he could out of respect for the league. Bollocks. The league goes on for more than just this one season. The academy is full of players that could be pushing for first team minutes if only they would be given first team minutes in these meaningless games. Who cares if the outcomes of Chelsea's matches impact Spurs, Leicester or West Ham or anybody else's? Play the damn kids. They have literally nothing to lose, and playing in games against teams that are fighting for places in Europe or to stay out of the relegation zone guarantees that they will be experiencing real Premier League action, rather than games played between mid-table sides that have nothing to gain or lose and are played at a preseason friendly's pace.

 

Gonna be the same thing this summer and next year: the academy lads are too inexperienced to be trusted to play in the league, so we'll buy another half dozen plonkers from overseas, spending millions and millions of pounds in the process, and field a team that has zero cohesion. 

 

I fear that 2017 will not be the only season Chelsea are at sea and without European football.

Their defensive collapse against the Irons was odd, though. That's one area in which they've been solid most days. Looks like they gave up too many set piece opportunities to a team that owned them in the air.
