  1. I hope to goodness Leicester isn’t a “one-n-done”, flash-in-the-pan club and is forced to sell when the season is over. Clubs will be lurking. Clubs will be hovering to get their hands on Leicester’s players and I hope they not only keep those core players but add to the strong brass. The Premier League had become stale for my liking but my interest was renewed once Leicester started that championship push. Leicester are a bit of fresh air and it’s exciting.

  2. Another reason to dislike the premiere league or another league without a hint of even some kind of salary cap. Yes, the quality of play is high and it’s a joy to watch. I watch it myself quite a bit, but something is wrong when a team achieves a once in a lifetime success and before the confetti has even fallen to the ground the wealthy clubs will poach this team dry.
