At least a few big clubs should consider it seriously, as the Carabao Cup represents their best chance of getting silverware. Two such …

Leicester’s is a classic example of how quickly things can change in football. A season after scaling the heights of clinching their first ever Premier League title, the Foxes were down at the nadir, struggling to look for anything that they could hold on to climb out of the dreaded red zone.

Leicester City: Never change, Never change

Leicester City: Never change, Never change

While I realise I'm stating the most profoundly obvious sentence available here, what Leicester City managed to achieve last season was remarkable. The facts, as they should be, are well documented. A group of players, tarnished with doubt, stylistic limitations and a lack of experience at the very top level were led - by a written off wildcard appointment of a manager - to the league title. It's unparalleled  unlikelihood is unavoidable in an age of super clubs with deep …

Decoding What Went Wrong For The Foxes On Opening Day

It is the first time that the defending champions have lost on the very first day of the Premier League, and it also looks like Leicester City’s dream fairytale run is over. They defied all the odds last season and won the league, but this time around, it looks like all the odds are against them.
