The Leicester City Dream

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Wow, what a season to be a Leicester City fan,
Pearson left and in came the tinker man,
They were quickly installed as favourites to go down,
And many City fans could be seen with a frown,
But a fairy tale journey has been made,
Even though their title bid was expected to fade,
Leicester City Premier League champions is the new song,
As Claudio Ranieri shouts Dilly Ding Dilly Dong,
When Schmeical kicks the ball it goes like a rocket,
Morgan and Huth have forwards in their pocket,
With Fuchs on the left and Simpson on the right,
The City defence is solid and tight,
The midfield is where all the magic begins,
Drinkwater spraying passes and pulling the strings,
Kante came in from Caen for a few million,
And now his price tag must surely be close to a billion,
Albrighton has been fantastic playing out wide,
He’s played with passion and so much pride,
And then there’s Mahrez the PFA player of the year,
He’s dazzled and mesmerised playing with no fear,
Now where do we begin with the man who likes to party,
The one and only Mr Jamie Vardy,
Just a few years ago he was playing in non league,
And now he’s got every youngster to truly believe,
He’s been abley assisted by Ulloa and Okazaki up top,
Their endless running has been greatly admired by the faithful Kop,
But its not all about the players that start,
The whole City squad has played its part,
Andy King has been with City through thick and thin,
And Wasilewski will run through walls to help City win,
Demarai Gray has waited patiently for his City chance,
When he’s come on he’s led defenders on a merry dance,
Then there’s Jeffrey Schlupp who’s risen through the youth scheme,
He’s one of several City players who’s fulfilled their boyhood dream,
Its Champions league next season so watch this space,
Until then tears of joy will continue to roll down every Leicester City fans face!
