Nil-Well done matey,Lestaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,have a drink or 2 matey.What a season.
Leicester have had a real togetherness after the experience of last year. Add intelligent scouting, tactics, looking at what worked best with the players, exceptional control and management, and you can’t do any more than that.
Cynics may say they took advantage of the failures of the others, but for Leicester to have got so many things right with the budget they’ve had, and be as competitive as they have been, it really is a phenomenal achievement that is unlikely to be repeated for a long time.
fully agree mate. Leicester went the distance. It’s unique in it’s own right even when they had the points lead that they just tried to maximize every game to turn into a victory or at the very least, a draw.
I would take this opportunity to add that if anybody wanted a definition of ‘Gegenpressing’, then in my mind from what I’ve seen largely this season, Leicester’s tactical play have epitomized it.
I’m a bit like a Villa supporter right now, still in denial. I can’t quite believe it. I’ve never, at any point this season expected us to win it. Every round, I’ve never expected us to win the game, just hoped. I think that is the same for the players, they have never taken anything for granted. The enormity of this achievement will take some sinking in I think..
Congrats to Leicester. It’s an amazing achievement. It’s hard to think that Ranieri got the sack in Greece after losing to the Faroe Islands only a 18 months ago.
It’s often been said that the nice guys finish last and Ranieri has been a joy to watch; his modesty, politeness to the referee and his opponents and his ability to take the pressure of his players has been something others can learn from. But what I like most about his personality is his constant positivity. I’m sure it get’s to his players and has a huge influence on everybody at the club.
I can’t even rightly knock Spurs for completely loosing all emotional control because evidence suggests Arsenal would be guilty of the same thing/similar. Seems no one does capitulation more extravagantly than the North London clubs!
