  1. This Leicester season just keeps defying belief. I thought the collapse was imminent after the villa draw, but they turn around and thrash Liverpool and city… Surely the coach turns back into a pumpkin at some point, right? If they win the league, it has to be up there as one of the greatest surprises in professional sports history.
