The Foxes have won both the First Division/Premier League & the FA Cup for the first time in their history over the last six seasons, bearing in mind Leicester were in League One only 12 seasons ago.

Just goes to show what a club from notoriety can achieve.

Are Leeds following the same route?

I am just so glad they beat that vile club and won the cup for the first time . It will mean so much more to them and their fans than it would to that other lot .

Leicester breaking the myth of the sneaky six gives us some hope of what can be achieved. A club that seems to be run really well with an owner and fans aligned in a common goal. Hopefully we can join them soon in these successes by taking a realistic part in cup competitions as well the league.

Leicester are more of a top 6 club than Spurs and Arsenal, two sides on the way down. Hopefully we can follow their lead.

Why bump the thread unless something has happened of note involving this club?

Leicester closing in on a double deal for Celtic striker Edsonne Edouard and midfielder Boubakary Soumaré for a combined fee of £38mil.

Very impressive business imo.

Leicester closing in on RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka.

34 goals and 12 assists in Austria last season.

The level is questionable but the Red Bull clubs specialise in finding gems and flogging them (Haaland, Mane etc).
