So if you’re a fan of sports in general, you should know that Leicester City won the league title of the Premier League this year. This crazy game happened Monday between Tottenham and Chelsea. Yes, for all of you people that don’t know soccer, a team can win the title without even playing in the game. In soccer, it all comes down to how many points you finish with at the end of the season. With that being said, since Chelsea tied Tottenham on Monday, Tottenham will not have enough points to catch up to Leicester City and take first place. With two games remaining, there is not enough time so Leicester has won the championship. My team, Chelsea, helped them do that so Vardy, if you’re reading this, you’re welcome.
A fan of sports underdogs should love this story. Leicester City has been around for over 132 years and never been in the top tier of English football. This was their first time being in the BPL where they had 5000 to 1 odds to win it. Yes, 5000 to 1. I wish I bet on that because I could be rich. So going into the season, they definitely were not in the lime light. Claudio Ranieri was brought in as the new manager of Leicester. Last time he was in the BPL he was the coach of Chelsea. So they stared out the season nice without losing a game till the end of the September to Arsenal. Overall they lost 3 games all season, and was in first place for the majority of the season. Jamie Vardy one of the most underrated players in all of football broken the record for most goals in consecutive matches by scoring 11 goals. This broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record. Also, Raheem Marhez was a great player for them, winning the Player of the Year award. Honestly, their whole team played way better than anyone thought. I could talk about each player for hours because they shouldn’t of been that good.
This is honestly one of the coolest title races I have ever watched because for once, the big clubs with a lot more money than these smaller teams lost. This is great for the league because it shows that even if your club isn’t the biggest, you still have a chance to win it all.
I think that next year their will be a lot more competition between the bigger and smaller sides. Going forward to the transfer window, it will be interesting to see if Leicester tries to bring in some big names so they can defend their title or maybe sell their players. I hope that they try to bring in some big names and invest more money into the club. That would be cool if they became a team that could compete year in and year out with the big clubs (Chelsea, Man United, Arsenal, Man City, etc.). So it should be an interesting summer which I will keep you guys up to date on.
Thats all I really have for you guys, just wanted to make sure everyone knew they won. So Leicester City, you’re welcome and congratulations. Oh, and did anyone see Hazards goal to tie the game against Tottenham, which then became the goal to win Leicester the title?? It was amazing! Hazard is back baby!! Can’t wait for next season.
