Well, that was one of my favourite ever EPL seasons and congrats to Leicester for an amazing achievement, probably the greatest in my lifetime for football in the UK anyway.
I feel like I got to experience it closer by winning some money and taking the trip down to Leicester for hospitality at the match v Southampton last month.
The £1000 covers the deposit for a new car we had to upgrade to for new baby arriving.
I’m fed up listening to the bookmakers moaning about the money they lost. They set these odds to entice bets on something that they think will never happen. They’ve been raking it in for decades by luring the fans of these clubs to stick a wager on and because of an extraordinary year and a perfect storm of events they got stung. Fuck them. Think of all the punters who have lost big money, don’t see the bookie shedding any tears for them.
Good to see what Leicester do next, whilst I think they will go on to have a decent year next season and will have a tremendous in the Champions League, to maintain a challenge on both fronts they need to splash the cash now and build a bigger squad capable of coping with the fixture pile up.
The league is going to be very competitive next year as well.
