Fearless: How Leicester City Shook the Premier League, and What it Means for Sport by Jonathan NorthcroftKing 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 stadiums 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, Leicesters 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 Leicesters 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 that Leicester have gone all the way and won the title, it is the best story in world sports - for years.
Premier League champions. The side whod been adrift at the bottom 12 months previously, whos started the season as relegation favourites, whose manager was favourite to be the first one sacked once the campaign got underway. A League One side only seven seasons previously. A squad of �500,000 and �1m men. Leicester. Ridiculous. Miraculous. Fearless.

Leicester City season review 2015-16: How did Claudio Ranieri get it so right?
Here we rate all those players, look at how much their value has increased by and whether they are likely to still be at the club at the start of next season. Capable of spectacular saves but rarely flashy, he commands his box well, distributes the ball smartly and inspires. Having worked his way up from the lower leagues after leaving Manchester City in , he is now said to be coveted by a variety of clubs. A needless red card against Arsenal in February was a rare blemish. Like Simpson, the Austria international had to wait until after the home defeat by Arsenal in October to make his first appearance of the season. In his case it was his Leicester debut, following his transfer last June.
The —16 season was Leicester City 's th season in the English football league system and their 48th non-consecutive season in the top tier of English football. In what was described as one of the greatest sporting stories of all time,  Leicester were confirmed as champions of the —16 Premier League season on 2 May , finishing top of England's highest league for the first time in the club's history. The club was with bookmakers to win the division before the season kicked off. The season also saw history be made for individual players within the team, as striker Jamie Vardy broke the record for goals scored in consecutive games in the Premier League 11  and Winger Riyad Mahrez became the first African and first Algerian player to be the recipient of the PFA Players' Player of the Year.
