On August 8, 2015 a team that had performed not very notably in the previous season of the English premier league went on to play its first match of the new season. They were full of hopes to stay in the league this season and perform such that the world never forgets. It was none other than Leicester City FC, who had little idea to themselves that they would replicate Nottingam forest in that very season.
After playing their pre-season friendlies with teams like Mansfield town, they had little idea as to how the next whole season would turn out for them. With only three defeats till this date Leicester City have proved themselves to be a tough opponent and after the recent win on Manchester City no one can put that to doubt.
The fairy tale story of The Foxes has special mentions for Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. Vardy has gone on to break Van nistelrooy’s and score in 11 consecutive games in 2015. Both Vardy and Mahrez have become a household name in the English football now. They are famous like any of the other big name players are.
Nottingham Forest back in 1977-78 season were nothing different. They had just taken the promotion from second division to the first and what they did back then is nothing different from what Leicester City are trying to do. In 77-78 Forest were 7 points ahead of Liverpool who took the second spot back then.
What Leicester City now have in mind is not a big of a secret. With just 4 games left and 3 out of the 4 teams already defeated once this season, the Foxes have a chance of going on and winning what no one is yet certain they can.
Can Ranieri’s men make what most people thought to be impossible? It is there for us to witness ladies and gentlemen.
