Absolutely fed up of Ranieri. He was roundly jeered today when his first sub at 0-2 down was to bring on hapless right back Cyrus Christie for Schurrle. His response post match was to point out Schurrle had flu midweek.

FFS nobody gives a shit you've taken Shurrle off, who is a widely unpopular player. People are booing and jeering you because your response to being 2-0 down is to switch to a back 5 and bring on a shit right back who can't cross. Can't fathom how out of touch he is.

2-0 spurs vs Leicester now. Erickson with a real beauty after vardy misses a penalty. As a spurs fan ffs levy give erickson the wages he deserves. Break the bank for him.

Spurs 5 points of top spot now, i hope people keep underestimating them, i still dont think they can win title.............but fuck me if you say they have no chance its a bit silly. We are in this now, hopefully get kane and lai back, and still have a chance. Prob finish 3rd, but great stuff.

Thought Man City would slip up today and give that cheating lot a gift points margin at the top of the league. 4-0 after 25 mins. Going to take a lot to mess up from this point.

Glad to see Spurs win today and hopefully with Kane coming back soon, they can kick on and have a strong finish to the season. City look excellent though, phenomenal performance today. I think they're pretty clearly the best team in the world on their day and the only thing that'll stop them winning the Champions League will be fatigue.

They will win the league, but I don't think they are favourites for the CL. Their defence is nothing special and an organised team like Juve could easily frustrate them and still have the attacking power to punish them too. Luckily for City there is not a great team in Europe. The great Barca, Real and Bayern teams of past years are all vulnerable and disjointed at times and PSG are overrated. So City have as good a shot as anyone.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Juventus in the summer in a deal that will earn him over £400,000 a week.

The 28-year-old has agreed a four-year contract that will see him join the Italian champions as a free agent, ending his 11-year spell with Arsenal.

Ramsey passed a two-part medical in January, having picked Juve following talks with a host of European clubs.

He will be the highest-earning British player ever based on basic salary.

The Wales international's Arsenal contract expires on 30 June and the Gunners will receive no fee when he leaves

not bad for a player made of glass

How the fuck is he getting that much ? Even without a transfer fee that's a ridiculous wage for a player with his consistantcy and injury problems.

It's not though is it?

It's an outlay of 80 million over 4 years.

He'd go for 50 million in the market without even taking in to account wages.
