Week 19: Hero – Leicester City FC

by Charlie_East_West on May 11, 2016


Our hero of the week award goes to Leicester City for winning the Premier League.

From 5000-1 outsiders to Premier League Champions. It is some story. it is possibly the great ever surprise title win in the history of English football.

But Leicester are not a bunch of pub players who have got lucky. It is a combination of factors that aliened at the same time to create a perfect footballing storm. A shrewd, yet humble manager, a generous owner, great team spirit, a balanced team and the exploitation of a gap in the market – as the traditional ‘big’ teams underperformed.

Who knows if a team like Leicester will ever be as successful again in this generation, but we should be thankful to Leicester for providing a heartwarming 10 month good news story in a world full of bad news.

Leicester City made us fall in love with football all over again.
