After the match, Limior went on an expletive-laden tirade about Falcao, and who could blame him, as he picked up 3 goals and 2 assists.

Leicester 0 - 0 Aston Villa
Brad Guzan gets injured and has to go off. We can't score. I make subs. We still can't score. Ron Vlaar gets red carded. WE STILL CAN'T SCORE. Control turns into attack. WE STILL CAN'T FUCKING SCORE. Attack turns into overload. NO MATTER WHAT FUCKING HAPPENS WE CAN'T SCORE A FUCKING GOAL FUCK THIS MATCH!

Chelsea 3 - 1 Leicester
We tried our best but Hazard and Cuadrado tore us apart on the flanks.
Everton defeated Tottenham 2-1 so they have clinched 7th unless we can win, they lose, and we outscore them by 17 goals.

Leicester 1 - 2 Liverpool
We had the lead with an Ulloa goal, but a Gerrard penalty and a Borini rebound goal later, we didn't. We were locked into 8th, but still a tough end to the season.
Premier League Table
7th didn't even get a EL spot anyway. It was a very good season, considering we skipped the survival part and went straight to consolidation. I have a lot of signings I need to make for next season, the attack is woefully understaffed, Huth, Ansotegi, and Madinda are going back to their teams.

More Leicester signings, transfers out, and released list
First, the Leicester released list:
Next, here are the players who were sold:
- Chris Wood to Bournemouth, 350k

- David Nugent to Hull, 1m
- Riyad Mahrez to Stoke (sorry Proudie!), 5m
- Danny Simpson to Bournemouth, 1.5m
- Wes Morgan to PSV (!), 1.6m
The first set of signings was for the future, this set is for the present:
Nice blend of experience and youth there. You've got two very capable attacking wing backs now which suits your tactical style. Hopefully you can build on your first season and push for Europe or even a domestic cup.
You only live once - Leicester seal 15m deal for Gabriel Barbosa
The news came out like a shock - Leicester? Gabriel Barbosa? Yes, what is probably the first name on everyone's wonderkid lists for FM has come to Leicester for a reported fee of 15m, although they had to pay more to purchase all of him and make him eligible for play. He can play in both forward and attacking midfielder, and Leicester needed a big boost to their attack if they're to push towards a potential continental qualification place.
I can only imagine the conversation between Barbosa and his agent:
Barbosa's agent: Leicester have come calling, they want to sign you.
Barbosa: Liverpool? Sweet, I've always wanted to play for Liverpool.
Barbosa's agent: No, Leicester. They wear blue.
Barbosa's agent: They're offering a lot of money!
Barbosa: I've so glad I've signed for Liverpool!
Barbosa's agent: Leicester.
Barbosa: Wait, I signed with Leicester? Fuck me...
