Every Premier League season is filled with emotions, surprises and moments that satiate all all footballing lusts of an average fan! With 2016 coming to an end, here we try and capture the best PL moments from the past year in our ‘Premier League Year in Review’. This would be a series of 2 articles.
1) The Leicester Story
2014-15 season, Leicester City found itself in the relegation zone at the Christmas. Just like the Table-Topper at the Christmas is a cue to the champion, Relegation zone is a cue to Championship.
Leicester somehow rallied through their last few games and survived the cull. With odds as stupid as 5000-1 for them to be PL champions, what ensued in 2015-16 is nothing short of a Fairytale. Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and N’golo Kante became household names and Ranieri after 30 years in Management lifted the Trophy for the first time.
They became neutral’s favourite and after the ‘Battle of the Bridge’, every Leicester City fan had a reason to feel on top of the World. The success of Leicester is peerless, may be just may be, next year I’ll be writing similar piece for RB Leipzig but till then, It’s the Leicester Story.
