As mentioned in many an earlier Blog, UK football team Leicester City Football Club (‘The Foxes’) 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). The table in question (in the second picture that is) is that of the English Premiership League (the model in the top picture is from my living room…)

Just to remind you, at this point last year the Foxes were  running a dismal last out of 20 teams in the league. Relegation certainties. How they stayed up still defies credibility. Now with just six games left of this season and after a nail (and fingers, hand, arm and shoulder) biting 1-0 win over Southampton on Sunday, the flying Foxes are in first place, top of the table by an incredible seven points from Tottenham Hotspur. The likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are trailing behind like a defender’s flailing leg trying to catch Foxes hot-shot striker Jamie Vardy.

As I wrote in a recent Blog, if the Foxes win the English Premier League it will be one of, perhaps the, greatest team sporting achievements of all time. The club that Khun Vichai rebuilt is now only a maximum 12 points away from making the wildest of dreams come true.
