9781472241634: Fearless: The Amazing Underdog Story of Leicester City, the Greatest Miracle in Sports History

"The odds of the Foxes winning the Premier League at the start of the season were the same as the Yeti or the Loch Ness Monster being proven to exist, Christmas being the warmest day of the year in England or Barack Obama playing cricket for England after he left the Oval Office." --ESPNOn March 21, 2015, Leicester City lost their sixth game in eight matches. Without a victory for two months, they were rock bottom of the English Premier League, heading for certain relegation to the lower division, and about to miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime financial bonanza of TV money and opportunity. As usual, London and Manchester would clean up, the rich would get richer, and the hopes of the small, overlooked, multicultural city would sink.But Leicester started to win. They stayed up; and in the new season they kept on winning. Favorites for relegation, rank outsiders as potential champions (their 5000-1 odds were the longest in the world for any major sporting event), their entire squad had been assembled for less than the cost of a single player for Manchester City. Still, they beat Manchester City and Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea: the most incredible cast of written-offs, grafters, misfits, and journeymen came together for the season of their lives.This is the story every underdog dreams of, every small town with a much larger, more affluent neighbor hopes for, and a triumph that defies logic and expectation.

About the Author:

Jonathan Northcroft is the soccer correspondent for the Sunday Times. He is the frequent contributor for BBC Radio 5 Live's football programs, and a regular guest on Sky Sports' Sunday Supplement show. Inaugural winner of the Jim Rodger Memorial Award for young sports writers in Scotland, he was shortlisted for Feature Writer of the Year at the Sports Journalists Association awards in 2006 and Football Writer of the Year in 2016.

Review:

Many books examined Leicester City s glorious, unexpected victory in this year s Premiership, but only Northcroft s account really understood its significance. The Telegraph, Top 50 Books of 2016
Northcroft s stylish narrative delves deeper than the stock themes of heart, spirit and long-ball football, and argues that it was, above all, a triumph of the collective over the individual; the slow build over the quick fix. Jonathan Liew, The Telegraph
Required reading for every club aspiring to achieve a fraction of what Leicester did, it reveals in its impeccably researched detail some of the less appreciated reasons why the greatest miracle in sports history actually happened. Ian Herbert, The Independent

Descripción Headline Publishing Group, United Kingdom, 2017. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The definitive account of Leicester City s astonishing rise from relegation certainties to Premier League title winners: the greatest achievement in the modern football era.King Power Stadium, countdown to kick off. Out on the pitch a lone brass player sounds the haunting Post Horn Gallop, for 80 years the home players entrance tune. Spines tingle. Air is gulped into opposition lungs. Game time, time to begin the chase. Burning fox eyes peer down from between the decks of one of the stands. On the stadium s outside wall a royal blue LCD display says #Fearless.Welcome to Leicester City. They were always a club with a difference but in 2015-16 they created a story that in modern football stands unique. Who could believe it: from relegation certainties to champions of England? It was when, on behalf of every small club, dreams were hunted at the King Power, a season where the impossible became merely quarry.5,000-1 shots when the campaign started, Leicester s transformation has been remarkable. This is the most incredible cast of written-offs, grafters, misfits and journeymen, coming together in a special time and place to simultaneously have the season of their lives. Fearless will document Leicester s hunt of their impossible dream. It will tell the greatest football tale of the Premier League era, in loving detail, with the inside track. Now Leicester have gone all the way and won the title, it s the best story in world sports - for years. Champions of the Premier League. The side who d been adrift at the bottom 12 months previously, who s started the season as relegation favourites, whose manager was favourite to be the first one sacked once the campaign got underway.
