Albrighton's goal vs Brugge - started the European run and couldn't have picked a player who deserved it more.

Sevilla at home by quite a long way. The atmosphere from start to finish was like nothing I had experienced before. I was there for the 5-3 Man United game and I didn't think that could be topped, but I was wrong! The look on peoples faces after the final whistle as everyone realised what the club had just achieved will stay with me forever.

Hearing the Champions League Anthem for the first time in Brugge

Far too difficult.

 

Brugge for experiencing an incredible city with incredible weather, beer and the result.

Sevilla away- The atmosphere after Vardys goal and specifically when we were locked in the stadium singing the Ben Marshall song was absolutely priceless.

Sevilla home- Unbelievable, the feeling when Albrighton scored and the pure tension for the last 15 minutes was a once in a lifetime experience.

 

Other than that, visiting 5 incredible cities watching us in the Champions League is something I will never, ever forget.

The whole experience in Bruges. The place, the weather, the fans, the beer, the match and the incredible atmosphere created by our 1,400. If Carlsberg did Champions League away games ...........

 

Seville at home was incredible too. I didn't realise the whole ground was going nuts as I was absolutely captivated by the game.

 

Madrid on Tuesday was great as well. Still extremely disappointed to be out but I think we went out with a tremendous effort from the players and fans we just weren't quite good enough but not a million miles away.

Sevilla at home I don't think words can describe how we all felt that night

Second best moment though would have to be hearing the champions league music at the KP for the first time. I wouldn't cry over football, but I'd be lying if it wasn't an emotional moment. 

 

To be honest I remember before that first game against Porto I was in the local hero and the DJ in there played the champions league music, and I remember just realising that I was about to watch my club play in the CL. Excited would have been a massive understatement.

Schmeichel penalty save against Sevilla for me. Also the Madrid trip was fantastic.

When it became apparent in Porto that we were never going to get a goal and the fans took a laid back approach and just enjoyed it for what it was.

I know this one might not be as sexy, but for me listening to the draw for the group stages thinking we have a serious chance of progressing here.

Bruges

 

3-0 win & Albrighton goal

The square, fantastic atmosphere

Belgian beer, the best

 

Copenhagen

 

The smiles on the faces of the Danes as they relieved you of €25 for brekkie & €8 a pint

 

Porto

 

Atmospheric city

Cheap eats & drink

Bars next to the river, brilliant

 

Seville

 

First bit of sun in ages

Tasty tapas

The bus ride through the Andalusian landscape

Vardys goal, gave us a ray of hope

 

Madrid

 

Magnificent city, more sunshine, more tasty tapas

The back street bars

Friendly Atletico fans

 

5 Away trips I would never have experienced if it was not for our brilliant 2015-2016 season.

Thank you Leicester City FC.

The atmosphere we made in that away end in Brugge, never seen or heard anything like it following Leicester.

Albrighton's goal to make it 2-0 against Sevilla (H), the goal that ultimately sent us to the Quarter Finals. Particularly stands out.

 

The anticipation of the crowd when the ball fell to him in the box and then the moment he netted. Magic.

Final whistle against Sevilla. 

 

Unbelievable feeling, and so unbelievably special to be there.

 

Only Champions League game I've ever been to and without a doubt the best atmosphere I've ever experienced.

 

Got in my seat about an hour and a half early to soak up the atmosphere and to see the ground fill up - then the music started, the teams walked out, the fearless Fox banner dropped down and the glorious "LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR" banner rose up - beautiful. And then we were phenomenal during the game. Quite simply beautiful.

I study down South so usually can only make the weekend games, hence I couldn't come to any of the CL group games. But for Sevilla, I made an exception. I had to see my team once in the Champions League.

 

The thing that struck me most as soon as I walked in was how the bright the stadium was. I have been to the KP countless times but the sheer excitement of being under the lights for a night like that and seeing all the flags around the ground was unbelievable.

 

The whole build-up in fact with Kasabian blaring out. The Champions League Anthem gave me goosebumps and the tifo with shakey let slip the dogs of war was spine tingling.

 

And then a match that had everything! The place went mad for both goals but the moment that almost send a tear down my eye was Schmeichel's save. That's when I truly started to believe we be on to something special here.

A shame that had to be the last win but an experience that will stay with me forever.

 

I truly hope we're back in it one day!

Got to be Vardy's goals in Seville for me personally. Hearing the champions league music for the first time and Sevilla at home wasn't too bad either.
