They said you can’t win anything with this manager.
They said you can’t win against the biggest clubs in the world.
They said you can’t win with non-league players in your team.
That you can’t compete at the highest level with this budget.
That your winning chances are the same as chances of Elvis being alive.
That eventually you’ll falter and return to the bottom.
That it’s just a dream and will never be a reality.
That it’s time to be logical and not be romantic about this.
They said it’s impossible.
Everyone listened to them.
Everyone believed in them.
You didn’t care.
You just let the results talk.
You put your head down and worked hard.
You exhibited day in and day out how much you wanted it.
And in the end, you showed the world that fairy tales do exist.
That miracles still happen.
That if you really want something, you don’t have to worry about “them”.
You just have to go and get it.
For a team like you to come and take the giants on with their wealth and experience – not only take on but to beat them – it’s the biggest thing to happen in any sport.
Congratulations Leicester City on winning the league, and thank you. You captured the imagination of the sporting world and beyond with your display of courage and never-give-up attitude.
You have given everyone hope.
The romance is not dead.
