nobody gave a shite about the cup at the start of the season. It's only taken on significance recently because of how bad our season has been. everyone knows what our priorities were. FA Cup wasn't one of them

What's the Fa cup final got to do with us getting in the champions league? It's a lottery. We've got there because we've had an easy run, winning the fa cup and coming 5th whilst your biggest rivals both qualify for the champs league should not be seen as a success.
Let's the leave the drama until we know the outcome is all I'm saying. Nobody has won anything yet.
Klopp's took Liverpool to a final just as LVG has with us this season, both have a shot at a trophy and winning would boost either/both clubs. Alright the Europa comes with bonus of CL qualification but we still have a chance at top four, win our games and put the pressure on City is all we can do.
League and cup double has always been the bread and butter. UCL a bonus and Europa league something to avoid at all cost. It's only UEFA's desperate attempt to bribe clubs to take it seriously that they threw the bone of a UCL play off place.
Happily watched every minute of the trophy presentation. It was commentated that we have spent more in the last 2 years than Leicester have in their entire history. Steve Walsh and his scouts have been the reason why. We could learn a lot from them instead of throwing millions at up and coming youngsters hoping they'll come good. Our scouting system really is shit.
It's all well and good saying that but Leicester were battling relegation last season with pretty much the same squad, where was the praise for the scouts then, it's only because Leicester has overachieved that people are taking notice. If we didn't try to buy top quality we'd be labelled penny pinchers and all the rest of it, everyone's a fecking expert in hindsight.
Its not like Leicester aren't without their flops either.
We have to find the middle ground really, sign players that fit our system and the way we are going to play rather than any Madrid reject etc. that pops onto the market. I hope we learn this summer but for a top team there are huge expectations and pressure, to handle that you need special players.
