In spite of their current league position, I think the Leicester board have it wrong.

Summarises everything that is wrong with football.

He gave them something they could never have dreamed of last season. Now they are still in the Champs League last with a chance and they treat him like this.

I hope they get relegated.

That's it, no more Lemongrass restaurant around the corner from Asda for me. Go Hull, CP and Sunderland!

Just look how Burnley and Sean Dyche worked out in the end. Relegated, stuck with SD and look at them now.

Club are the laughing stock. He knows as does rest of football he achieved the impossible. He can walk into any job in football.

The timing is incredible...

Ask Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd, Spurs & Chelsea fans if they would all love to be in the Champions League with a quarter final place at stake and only 2-1 down after the first leg against Sevilla...?

Correct decision. No manager should be given a wild card because of how well they have done before. I don't call winning 5 games out of 25 league games acceptable. He has had enough time to sort things out, they simply can't win no matter what competition they are playing in.

We know that from how Nigel Pearson was sacked despite the incredible 7 wins from 9 fixtures that had kept the club in the Premier League.

But halfway through a champions league tie that they are still very alive in, is extreme by any standards.

When you think about it, it's the same as last season.

Mourinho was fired by Chelsea about 7 months after winning the title, ironically after they lost at Leicester. They were also still in the CL.

Football is a short term game now, instant success required, that's why you get people calling for Drummy to get the chop every time we lose a game.

I suppose these days Ferguson would never have lasted at Man U either.

Mind you it cuts both ways, as Mr Loyalty proved at Crawley.

Poor decision.

The manager certainly does not come out of this looking bad.

That is the problem

Live (and achieve) the dream.

Then, back to reality. Sad

let's be honest, Leicester are where we, and most of fans would expect them to be in a normal premier league season. And we would not be surprised if a manager from down that far in th league was given the sack.

It makes Ranieri's achievements last season all the more remarkable. And I'm sorry the board didn't stick with him but I'm not surprised.

Four of the last five managers to win the league have not defended it for a full season - only Fergie made the decision himself.

Football is a ruthless results driven business. The loss £120m if Leicester go down having handed out super contracts to most of their players would mean possible disaster - because I'm not sure there are relegation clauses in. Vardy and Mahrez are worth 50% of what they were worth last season.

As I say, saddened but not surprised. And Leicester are at their level - bottom six of the Premier League

With that in mind... Events at Leicester & Chelsea this season appear to demonstrate the value of N'Golo Kanté.... his absence from the former and arrival at the latter has apparently transformed both sides...

..not an unreasonable assessment seeing as he was arguably the only significant addition to a Leicester side that had struggled until the end of the previous Premier season... but last season went on to win it with him on-board.

dontknow

So... was it actually ever the decision of the Manager to release him or did the owners spot an opportunity to capitalise on a valuable asset that they had acquired at a bargain price.. and with hindsight, given that their league status is now in jeopardy, was it an offer that they should have refused..?
