It's not jealousy exactly, but there is certainly plenty of envy in seeing Leicester City win the Premier League earlier this week. This is a team that came from out of nowhere to climb the mountain top. There were a League One side just seven seasons ago. They were nearly relegated last season. And they had that weird, sex scandal thing over the break. Where did this performance come from?
They took other team's castoffs, bought talent cheaply and resurrected careers. Rest assured, there will be a movie made, and it will be glorious. It's a season that will be tough to replicate. Riyad Mahrez is sure to have a number of suitors during the summer, and so may Jamie Vardy as every club tries to get a piece of the Foxes success. So, on this day, while we at Royal Blue Mersey will still be rooting on Everton, it's tough to not like these LCFC lads.
