Leicester City’s stunning Premier League victory will no doubt serve as inspiration to Championship teams right now as they dare to dream.
And why not? Granted, the Foxes have been helped by the slump of the ‘big’ teams this term, though their coronation can’t be considered a complete fluke.
Simply put, the East Midlands club have been the best team in England this year over the course of a 38 game season.
So then, it can be done. You don’t need all the money in the world to lavish on big names and hipster managers to win the ultimate prize in the land.
Will we ever see it again? Arguably not. Still, perhaps it’s not as ridiculous a notion as it may strike you on first thought.
Every single year the Championship is getting increasingly competitive with more and more top teams dropping down into it every season.
The stakes are so high now that second tier teams are of great quality and can pull their weight in the proverbial Promised Land, with this season more than ever wholly indicative of that.
Don’t forget, only Norwich who were promoted last year look in danger of slipping out of it and the Canaries have been anything but drop fodder for much of the campaign.
So maybe it can be done again. Perhaps not.
Still, click the image to look at our three most likely candidates (if given the right backing of course).
