I personally don't think they have the quality. But you never know.

The final? No.

I think they'll get knocked out in the next round, but it's Leicester City.

How many clubs of their size and stature can say they've won the Premier League and played in the Champions League? They've done insanely well, unlikely to replicated for a LONG time.

Just reading some reports this morning of Leicester's triumph yesterday. Whilst I still don't think they will get past the next round, nobody would have even said they'd make the top six in the Premier League last season, so sometimes belief based on logic isn't always correct.

Maybe they can keep pushing on?

It is still very early to say that they will not reach the next round, especially as the draw for the next round has not been done.

They have found stability in their new manager and it seems that they are playing like the Leicester City of last year? I felt that Claudio Ranieri should of gone and the decision to appoint Craig Shakespeare was the right one. Claudio Ranieri was trying to strengthen his side with new signings such as Slimani, while at the same time break loyalty to players such as Leonardo Ulloa who scored crucial goals for them, and was an important player in the run up to the Premier League triumph.

Maybe Claudio Ranieiri got abit ahead of himself with the money and instead of focusing on building the team he already has, which won them the league. He was responsable of failing to stay faithful to some, which led to discontent and eventually his sacking.

Yep Ola I would very much agree with you. I also think with the money involved now, it's becoming more and even.

There are no more "easy games" in the Premier League. Money still differentiates teams, and you'd only expect the wealthiest (with the best players) to succeed, but what Leicester have done / are doing defies odds.

Claudio Ranieri's departure still feels wrong to me. Surely he deserved a "bad" season after doing what he did. Time will tell.

Leo - to your point of "we can't tell because the draw hasn't been drawn yet". Do you really believe Leicester can beat any of the remaining teams in that draw? I'm not so sure...

It's hard to say. If you look at it on paper, then no. But, Sevilla are much better on paper than Leicester in my opinion. So, to answer your question Mike, I certainly do think, it's a game of football, 11v11, as the Premier League was an impossible obstacle for Leicester before, they managed to overcome that hurdle. Can they go to the Bernabeu and draw - absolutely.

Fair points.

I just can't believe it. Leicester City playing against some of the biggest teams in the world. LEICESTER CITY!
