There are many LCFC supporters chanting this season but this one has to be the best of the lots; -


"WE KNOW YOU WON'T BELIEVE US, BUT WE'RE GONNA WIN THE LEAGUE!"


Congratulations to LCFC for winning the EPL championships, despite against all odds. Only the fans and 47 punters believed in you at the start of the season. Well done to the manager Claudio Ranieri and his team. Well done to everyone.
My LCFC beanie, "home made" in 1976 at the then Leicester Polytechnic,
England. This beanie is 40 years old now and still in excellent condition!!

I attended the game. Score 1-1
Some basic statistics for LCFC 2015/2016 season:-
1) 26.09.2015 - First defeat to Arsenal (2-5);
2) 24.10.2015 - First clean sheet beating Crystal Palace (1-0);
3) 28.11.2015 - Jamie Vardy records by scoring 11 consecutive matches in ONE season;
4) 13.01.2016 - LCFC top of the table, and for the rest - catch me if you can;
5) 10.04.2016 - Qualified for Champions League 2016/2017 season;
6) 24.04.2016 - Riyad Mahrez won the PFA Players Player of the Year award;
7) 02.05.2016 - Jamie Vardy voted the Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers' Association; 
8) 02.05.2016 - EPL Champions and the EPL season is not over yet!!

This is a season where Leicester City stays at the top of the league for 139 days and won the leagues when comparing to 140 days at the bottom of the league last season. In those 139 days at the top, it was more like catch us (LCFC) if you can. Not bad for a team started with an odd of 5000/1 at the beginning of the season.

Footnotes:
Whilst some may not agree with me on this, some of the credits should also be given to; -
1) The club owner for not sacking the previous manager Nigel Pearson until season 2014/2015 ended. Most EPL clubs would have sacked their managers long time ago but not Leicester and when that happened, it is usually quite hard to turn it around and most managers would go on and try something new;
2) Like the club's motto, Never Give Up, and that's what Nigel Person and his team did last season. Just keep trying and the results will come one day; and
3) Any finally for the manager Claudio Ranieri for not rocking the boat by not overhauling the whole team. The team was working so well towards the end of last season that all they need is just continued to play as a team to achieve the same objective, after all, his goal was to get only 40 points. Perhaps Claudio Ranieri may have heard the boss wrong. It's 40 points by Christmas and another 40 points by May LOL!

Only six teams have won the EPL since it's inception in 1992, and even teams like Liverpool, Everton, Aston Villa and Leeds United (all past Division One multiple winners) etc has yet to win this.
