Yes you’re right. The picture at the top of this page is exactly the same one I ran in a Blog last week. The one with Leicester City Football Club on top of a table.
But the second image? Ah now, that’s a different story. And a different table. It sure looks like the one I published last time (below). But it has a crucial difference. A week can be a long time in football but not for the all-conquering ‘Foxes’. Another weekend, another victory, another three points. Another large step towards the most unlikely glory. With just five games left Leicester – the mother of all underdogs – are just nine points (three wins) away from certain victory in the English Premier League, a competition long dominated by the big-money clubs of Manchester (City and United), London (Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspurs) and Liverpool. The hounds are chasing hard but this is a breed of Foxes that just refuses to be caught.
Footnote: As mentioned in many earlier Blogs, Leicester City Football Club is owned by an offshoot of Thai travel retailer King Power International Group (Chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha is the club’s Chairman and Senior Executive Vice President Susan Whelan its CEO).
