A team that was in the relegation zone most of last season then winning it the next season isn't a faiytale?

What would yo need for it to be a fairytale? From going from bottom of the league to winning it in a season, being favourites for relegation, their manager favourite for the chop. All done with a band of pretty much journey men non superstars.
Really don't get what else would make the story better? Need one of them to have aids?

It is a massive achievement, don't think it has been bettered in world sport. I think it's because Chelsea, Man City, Man United and Arsenal have been poor it seems 'easier' - but this should take nothing away from it.

Whilst thats true it's kind of irrelevant as well because for me it's the change in Leicester thats been amazing. Going by previous seasons as long as they avoid defeat in the next two games they'd have finished comfortable in the top 4 with their points totals and if that';s all they'd achieved this season we'd be still saying what a fairytale.

what was hilarious was the chelsea wankers having the shit kicked out of them, never has one team amassed such an array of total shithouses at the same time!

i quite enjoyed seeing us give those cunts a good kick. only a shame that we lowered ourselves to their level that second half as we out played them in the first

well done to leicester - totally deserved.

Considering how passive Ranieri is a person, how little he changed when he took over i just cant grasp how they've done it. Team spirit for sure but its like they've brute forced the fucker with sheer will and determination. Fuck knows.

Every credit and a welcome big fuck you to these rich men play thing clubs that effectively made me stop enjoying/watching top flight footy as much as i used too.

Long may shit like this happen. Burnley next season?

I can understand the passion side of things, but that seemed to go a little far. Cant really blame Chelsea this time other than the wingers drawing fouls, but was pretty unsporting overall from Tottenham especially considering the game was there for them to win. Could/should have been some reds imo. Nearly every player on a yellow is laughable refereeing, too scared to make any big calls.
Also love Hazard so much after that goal having said he wanted Leicester to win the title, was gonna play harder against Tottenham etc. post match last week. Hope he's back to his best for good, one of the best to watch in the world.

Biggest sporting upset ever. Winning a cup is one thing, play well/get lucky over 10 games or so, but winning a league over 38 games is incredible. I thought they would get relegated when I heard Ranieri was appointed. Mind boggling achievement, so chuffed for them and Ranieri.

Chelsea will do well next season.

Shame he didn't wanna play harder for his shirt eh? He's been sulking all season. The geezer is pathetic - good footballer or not.
