So Leicester has found their stride against under Shakespeare.

Beware the Ides of March.

The Monaco v ManCity game yesterday was spectacular. Both teams took their turns all out attacking, some really exciting footy. There are going to be several teams going after the young Monaco players this summer. They have some really impressive talent.

Chelsea and Monaco are making it the year of clubs owned by Russian Oligarchs. Chelsea is sure to win the BPL and Monaco is in great shape at the top of Ligue 1. Amazing that Monaco just a few years ago were toiling in the second division of France. Who led them to promotion? Claudio Ranieri.

Looking forward to the draw tomorrow:

Atletico Madrid (Spain)
Barcelona (Spain)
Bayern Munich (Germany)
Borussia Dortmund (Germany)
Juventus (Italy)
Leicester (England)
Monaco (France)
Real Madrid (Spain)

Anthony Taylor is absolutely botching this Chelsea v Stoke match. He set an early precedent to. Or call anything, but he awarded Stoke a penalty for a fucking dive. And the most egregious he let a studs up mid air kick to the side of Diegos knee go with out punishment. Someone's going to get hurt. The officiating across Europe has been unacceptable this year. I'm really worked up about it. Fuk!!!

Meh, Diego Costa is a douche. Gets away with that shit all the time. Can't get upset when people get rough with him.

You're opinion is preconceived and therefore invalid. Anthony Taylor was dispicable today.

....yeah I straight up said he sucks and anything bad that happens to him is a good thing in my book. When you play the game the way he does, refs will not always give you the benefit of the doubt.

Take off the Chelsea goggles and you'll see him the same way literally everyone else does. Dude is a clown.

You didn't watch the game and therefore didn't see the foul I'm talking about. You're not going to bait me into anything.

Chelsea is up 13 points now so who really cares at this point.

The real story today is Arsenal losing 4 of 5 league games for the first time in over 2 decades.

It's a hard foul studs up to the side of the knee. I've seen reds given for less.

Costa is a turd. He's gotten away with plenty in the Premier League upon his arrival to where it's difficult for any neutral to get bent out of shape should any warranted injustice occur to him. I watched the match and couldn't even describe what I felt as indifference. The guy is a maggot.

Arsenal should be looking at Thomas Tuchel or Allegri, but Barca have reportedly offered Allegri. How they can go forward with Wenger is beyond me. He should have been sacked today. Problem is I think Wenger can only sack himself, which makes it hard to get rid of him.

The Liverpool at City match yesterday may have been one of the most entertaining of the season. End to end, on edge the entire match. The race for 2-6 really should be something. Liverpool is finished playing Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, City and United. Which is actually probably bad for them considering their form outside of that Top Five.

Agreed.

Arsenal should be looking at Thomas Tuchel...

Say that shit again, one more time, and I'll cut you.

Total agreement on all points! This top 4 race will be fascinating. LFC does not control its own destiny at this point because Arsenal and Man U have games in hand and LFC doesn't play either of them again this year, but just looking at their runs-in, you'd have to say LFC has the easiest of the three. Man U and Arsenal have particularly tough runs-in, I'd say. But Liverpool have been so inconsistent against teams outside the top 4! Will we see the LFC that crushed Hull 5-1 last fall, or the LFC that lost to Hull 2-nil this spring? Makes all the difference.

Liverpool was undefeated against Cheslea, Spurs, Arsenal, City and United. Yet they may finish 6th.

I think it winds up Chelsea, City, Spurs, United, Liverpool and Arsenal. Liverpool doesn't fare well against the bottom of the table.

This United club is terribly flawed but has Zlatan up top and that's saved them. He likely won't be back next year. I can only assume they spend more ridiculous money again this summer.

I'll take Pool over United. United dealing with a lot of games.

I question Liverpool against lower table teams, and they have no fixtures left against the big clubs. Also knowing Mourinho the way we do, he's going to play for 1-0 wins the rest of the way and do what he does.

United plays 9 matches in April. 5 at home and one of the four on the road is at City. The other two are Sunderland and Burnley. They might be out of gas by May when they have to take two away trips to London for whatever is left of Arsenal and Spurs.

Liverpool's remaining fixtures are full of landmines for them, especially away.
