I fail to see how Leicester winning the league is much of a silver lining?

I take your point about winning against all the odds but they've just been really lucky really. Not denying that hard work hasn't gone into it but if you simulated the season again 99 times out of 100 they wouldn't be anywhere near 1st.

Best thing to happen to football in a hell of a long time, last what you call unfancied club to cause trouble in top flight was maybe Ipswich in 2001 and if dont count that Blackburn in 1995.

well deserved and gives a 2 finger to the Sky elite

Because it gives hope.

We'll have to take our medicine in the lower leagues, in fact we deserve to given the shambles of the last 5 years.

Leicester were a shambles aswell once, went down to league one in 2007/08 but eventually sorted themselves and here we are.

I know it's a once in a lifetime generation fluke but that's what you cling onto isn't it?

Probably guarantees Man. United will have a shot on target before the 60th minute mark on Sunday. 

it means they will get further forward to pass back to the defenders ;)
