Its hard to explain this to anyone who is outside the club and didnt watch us in the season after, but i honestly would go as far as to say the football played in that following season was every bit as bad as the season before was good.
I've never been more disgusted with individual displays then i was in that following season (and yes ive sat through Levein, Megson etc).
I dont put all the blame at Ranieri. But he completely lost the plot. He did not know how to sort it out. Combine that with the fact he didn't want to sign Kante and walked in to a squad already built, then its very easy to say he got lucky.
I do however think his calm manner and consistent approach was vital in the title win. As much as Pearson built it all, he was his own worst enemy at times and he probably would have ****ed something up.
Ranieri will always be a club legend. But lets not get too wrappped up in the fairytale.
