    This Leicester thing isn't a story, they spent their way out of the championship by paying silly money for average at best players, Matt Mills cost them £5m which shows how recklessly they've spent

    England is only struggling at the moment to produce players as the media are hyping up them when they're young and/or general bad luck such as injuries or a bad off the pitch life.

    That second statement is like saying Water is wet - first is fair but by comparison to the top teams that they wiped the floor with this year the general public/media consensus is fair.

    The tiniest bit of research shows that this isn't true, they have the 4th cheapest squad in the league.

    Matt Mills, well they made £2m back on that (talk about net spend, fella), and when you also get Vardy and Mahrez for a combined £2m that kinda averages out as pretty good spending.

    http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/leice...rs/verein/1003 they spent £13m in the 2011/12 season, at the time even a couple of million was big money at championship level

    But by "this Leicester thing" you mean the PL win right... no one is saying their Championship win 2 years ago is incredible. They're talking about their PL win which involved spending far less than the opposition

    The Leicester thing definitely is a story. To win the league with a starting XI that cost less than Lamela is a hell of an achievement, no matter what the detractors say.

    Mine would be:

    - Guardiola is massively overrated and has taken Bayern backwards if anything.

    - Danny Drinkwater is ****. Loses the ball far too often and is made to look good by the players around him.

    That gift cards are a pointless waste of money that limit your options and must be simply destroyed at once. Just give me the money in cash gosh darn it.

    I think I'm a bit more pedantic with what I define as a story. I only see this as a major sporting triumph that will never be forgotten. For me, a story involves a span of a decade of dominance or a non-league team making their way up to the top with almost no money, for me that is a story
