Playing to your strengths in sport, business and life will not guide you too far wrong - Leicester do this brilliantly.

I must say, I'm impressed by how Leicester have established themselves as a top club. Perhaps not in terms of profile, but I fully expected them to slowly sink back to the bottom half PL / top half Championship after their title win, but they have kept themselves top half PL through great recruitment.

Their recruitment and even their sales of players have been very successful. Claude Puel was their one mistake but they soon replaced him and even under him they were still half decent/mid table.

Penalties given year by year.

92 in 380 games last season.
103 in 2018/19.
80 in 2017/18
106 in 2016/17
91 in 2015/16
19 in 25 games this season.

If this carries on we'll end up with 250+ penalties this season, which would be plain ridiculous.

I see Bayern were also hammered 4-1 today, must have been playing a British team.

Apparently there was one occasion they did beat an English team in the final.

No chance of this score line in front of fans.

They beat them 3-1 away the year they won the title to be fair.

How did Spurs not win? I left the house near the end of the game and it was 1-0 looking like it would finish that way.

Not a Pep team.

Why not? It's another set of matchday supporters that's become more of an audience rather than a crowd in recent years.
