I’m not a fan of Leceister city, let me not say never though. But truthfully, I actually knew about them this season. And with both hands over my eyes, I admit that I was one of the people that said their progress at the end of the Christmas season was just initial gra-gra (Nigerian pidgin).
But really, right up till the Tottenham vs Chelsea game, I thought it was still a dream, and with Tottenham two goals up, I still thought there’ll be a twist in the outcome of things. I actually went to bed with Tottenham leading.
I woke up this morning to see that they won. I confirmed it through all confirmable media, livescore.com, google, BBC, CNN sport, etc. This dudes actually pulled it off! Wouldn’t lie that I was so happy, cause obviously, I have not been a fan. But I’m thrilled, speechless too.
Leicester had every reason not to win this league. Here are a few reasons
- Statistics were against them The stats from journalists read 5000-1 in chances of them winning. With all the big guys around, Arsenal (gotta be loyal, lol) Man City, Man United, Chelsea (*coughs), Liverpool, etc.
- The literally had no big names. You know when everyone wants to kill Wenger (Arsenals coach) for not buying big named guys. These guys were almost unknown till they became too powerful to ignore. Shout out to James Vardy 😉
- Previous records didn’t help No one would include the almost relegated team among the champions. They weren’t even in the top 10 previously. We didn’t even consider them a tough game, talk less of title contenders.Smh
Now I’m pretty sure I haven’t covered even a quarter of all the reasons why they should not have been in the top four, not to mention WINNERS!
But they knew all these, they fought against the tide, went against public opinions and came out champions.
They still got the reasons to fail, but they chose to take those reasons, trash it in the bin and present us with their reasons to succeed.
RESPECT TO YOU GUYS! THANKS FOR SHOWING THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE…
