Doing a Leicester

When I was about 17 years old, I read Julian Barnes’ novel A History Of The World In 10 1/2 Chapters. In one of these chapters there is a fictional scenario in which Leicester City win the league title. And in 2016 they’ve done exactly that.

Inevitably there’s been talk of Partick Thistle possibly “doing a Leicester” – which could only happen if a. the Firhill pitch is relaid, b. weather conditions in Maryhill are favourable to aforementioned pitch, and c. more goals are scored. #MonTheJags

Bradford City have, of course, made the play-offs (and also need to increase number in the “goals for” column next season). And will hopefully win, though it won’t be easy…
