I have to interrupt this series to bring some important news from Europe, or to be precise, England. Leicester City has won the Premier League title! Claudio Ranieri, the Italian manager who led Leicester to the title, has been nicknamed “non ci soon titoli”, meaning “No Titles”. Now, here he is winning The Greatest Show on Earth. Leicester started the season with 5000-1 odds to win. For some perspective, the Cleveland Browns have 200-1 odds to win the 2017 Super Bowl. Leicester’s squad was created for £57m, much less than any team in the top half. Leicester is owned by Thai billionaire Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who already spoke of his readiness to spend £180m to secure the Foxes a top-five finish in the Premier League. Amazingly, this year they actually won the title. Their most promising players this season have been Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, N’Golo Kante, and Kasper Schmeichel. Kasper is the son of a legendary goalkeeper named Peter Schmeichel, who won IFFHS World’s Best Goalkeeper in 1992 and 1993. Jamie Vardy used to be in the lower leagues with a number of different clubs and now he is a known as one of the best 23 players from England. Who do you predict will win the title next season?

I’m so glad that you interrupted your series to give us the champion update. I can’t believe that with 5000-1 odds to win, Leicester City won the Premier League title! Thank you for comparing that statistic to the Cleveland Browns having 200-1 odds to win the 2017 Super Bowl. What an encouraging life lesson to never give up in life no matter what the odds are! Did you take your survey on Leicester City? I’m the one who got 10% on my answers. What are my odds on completing the survey again with 100%?
Go Leicester! I knew that they had a good chance to win the Premier league title. At the beginning of the year, I knew that they had no chance of winning, but look at them know, they just became the Premier League title winners. Speaking of witch, Vardy and Mahrez are one the best attacking duos in the world. I may be an Atlético Madrid fan, but I sure am happy for Leicester. PS: I’m cheering for Atlético.
I’m Juan Online from http://juanonlinep.edublogs.org/ , Leicester’s season was amazing, Vardy and Mahrez were amazing. Its amazing how last year they were almost last and this year they are the champions! I think that Leicester will be even better next season now that they have confidence. Wes Morgan has been an amazing captain and he led his team to victory. What other sports are you a fan of? I love soccer but my favorite sport is hockey. My favorite team are the Montreal Canadiens and they just had a horrible season, hopefully next year they will come back even stronger and be champions just like Leicester. I’d appreciate it if you visited my blog and commented. I really find your blog interesting and I will visit you again in the future.
That is crazy that Leicester City had five-thousand to one odds that Leicester city one the title. How happy are you? Were you expecting Leicester to win the title?
