Leicester City in Premier League Dreamland

Who would have thought that when the season started, that at the turn of the year newly promoted Leicester City would be leaders of the Barclays Premier League  and almost guaranteed Champions League football next season at the expense of the so called bigger clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.

In Praise of Ranieri

Claudio was the architect of the modern Chelsea and creating the wider legacy. “Yes, that is correct,” Ranieri (said in a Guardian interview) before adding: “I chose Petr Cech and had been to Eindhoven to take Arjen Robben and I suggested Didier Drogba."

Assessing the New Premier League Managers

The three promoted teams Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth have kept their head above water in the first eight games with 8pts, 10pts and 8pts respectively. Leicester are doing well though, on 16pts from nine games.
