Leicesters heroics this season echo me back to a period in English football when the impossible happened. The 1977/78 season.

Liverpool were the dominant team and had been for some time. Then out of nowhere popped Brian Clough and Nottingham Forest to storm to the title.

More remarkable about that period was that Forest when on to win the European cup twice in a row. But back then it wasn’t deliberately biased to the top teams. It was a true cup competition.

I think there are a lot of real footy fans that hope Leicester pull it off. It’s going to make for an interesting run in.
