    Obviously a cash in book, the whole book could have easily been condensed into half the length For instance the many pages showing league position as the season progressed could have all been shown on a half page progress chart I am glad to have read it just to retain a record of Leicester s progress through that season, but still feel a little ripped off Book is also largely reprints of articles from the sports section of the Leicester Mercury, which I remember as a poor newspaper from my time in the city with the sports reporting being as typically cliched as in most local newspapers That means it scores 2 10 for the actual narrative content Poor

    2015 2016 will be the period when the underdog managed to upset the establishment applecart in so many ways, and none enthusiastic than Leicester City Football Club.Rob Tanner, a local sporting journalist, acts as a fly on the wall as he charts the quite unbelievable, but seemingly inexorable, rise of an unfashionable football team from relegation candidates to Premier League Champions in the space of just a year Like the victorious team itself, the author successfully conveys the sense of I can t believe this is actually happening on my watch.Leicester relied substantially on cast off players from other teams, and hence spent very little money compared to some of the bigger clubs Depending on your method of calculation, the cost of the entire team amounted to less than the transfer value of a single player at Manchester City or Arsenal.Narrowly avoiding relegation at the end of the 2014 15 season thanks to the previous manager s groundwork, they then hired Claudio Ranieri, a manager who was himself a bit of a cast off Success in the 2015 16 season was deemed so unlikely that at least two bookmakers offered odds of 5000 1 available as late as October 2015 against Leicester ending up as champions, whilst everybody thought they were most likely to be relegated.The rest, as they say, is history, and Tanner is to be congratulated on having written a superb story If you want to understand how hunger can drive people to play beyond their ability, read this book.

    An excellent review of a history making season in the Premier League and a great achievement by the club considered by just about everybody to be the least likely to become Champions An easily readable book The author, Rob Tanner, obviously knows Leicester City inside out I enjoyed it immensely.

    To be honest, this could have been written by a child with spelling issues for all I cared as City winning the title was good enough It wasn t and Rob gives a great account of the months rolling by Buy one and pretend you never supported Arsenal or Chelsea the season before last.
