Seems surprising given we've won 3 league titles in the last 15 years and had other partly successful seasons

I read your post to my wife.  I thought that, even though she is not triggered by football, she would be interested.  She wasn't.  Luckily  I'm over-excited enough to compensate.  I bet Burton Swifts had a good team.

The technical quality In the team is something worth thinking about. If anyone remembers the time we got battered 6-1 at their place under Puel. One of the biggest issues we had was players keeping possession and finding a pass in tight spaces. We literally couldn’t do it. Today, the amount times Mendy, Youri and Praet picked it up had two or three around them but maintained composure and kept us ticking was awesome.

 

Also, who was on Madders shirt after he scored ?

I actually just love how all the talk is how poor man City were and not that we destroyed them tactically, god forbid someone out thinks Pep. We were magnificent today it was as sweet as the title winning game against them

Former club doctor, who sadly passed away this summer:

 

"Vardy’s hat-trick was the story of the game but Maddison’s curler from outside the area was the best goal and the playmaker celebrated by rushing over to the bench and holding a t-shirt aloft in an apparent tribute to a former Leicester City staff member.

The man in question was the club’s former doctor and ex-NHS orthopaedic surgeon Stuart Birtwistle, who passed away from cancer in June. On the t-shirt, Birtwistle was pictured alongside the Premier League trophy that Leicester City won in 2016."
