The Stats Behind Leicester City’s Revival

The Stats Behind Leicester City’s Revival

Leicester City – the club that has made a habit of confounding the pundits. When they were relegation candidates towards the end of 2014-15, they launched a fierce rearguard that ensured that they stayed up. When they were the least likely club in the Premier League to win the title, they went ahead and won it. And when earlier this season, experts were predicting at least a mid-table finish for the Champions, they landed themselves in a soup by game …

What Needs to Change at Leicester City?

There are very few jobs in this world, where you can go from an absolute hero on one day to an utter failure the very next day. A football manager’s job, especially a Premier League manager’s job is one of these rare job types. Consider the case of Arsene Wenger. Lately every season, there are two very noticeable waves of emotions for the Gunners fans. Every season, in most cases towards the end, Arsenal fans are placated with their continued …

There are only three game weeks in February, the first of which beckons us over the next two days.

The Premier League: Why it's still the best league in the world

The Premier League: Why it's still the best league in the world

Many football fans point to La Liga as the number 1 league in the world because of the technically superior aspects of the Spanish game. Some look to Germany's Bundesliga for the overall package ( Fantastic fans, marketing of brand, precision based football) Some fans strangely, even look to Serie A and Ligue 1 for it's "entertainment value." But the English Premier league is way ahead of all mentioned because it is a league where anything can happen, and, probably will. …
Leicester City request restart to EPL Season

Leicester City request restart to EPL Season

Leicester City have requested that the current EPL season be restarted. Claudio Ranieri cited external factors as the main reason for a vastly indifferent start to this season. Ranieri : “Jamie Vardy’s chewing tobacco is stuck in a port somewhere in Spain, and our good luck Pizza cutter has been missing since THAT party last season.” He went on further saying that his players initially thought that N'golo Kanté had taken it with him to Chelsea but they aren’t winning either …
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 …

Bartosz Kapustka - Profiling the Leicester City Target

Leicester City have had a measured summer, adding depth to their squad, but they haven't changed their transfer strategy since winning the league. They could have been tempted to chase big names and proven Champions League players. Instead they have continued to target players that fit into the ethos that lead them to league success, looking to the long term. The latest player that looks to be coming in is Bartosz Kapustka, the 19 year old Polish midfielder, who made …
The battle for the Premier League top four – Part 1

The battle for the Premier League top four – Part 1

So, yet another season is upon us and, on paper at least, it promises to be one of the most competitive yet when it comes to the top end of the Premier League. I’m actually finding it almost impossible to call at the present moment when it comes to which team will be lifting the title and the competition for those coveted Champions League spots will be intense. It’s only right and proper to start with the reigning champions Leicester …
