Why Leicester won the Premier League and my team didn’t
YJA at Heighington Millfield is full of football fanatics. At the beginning of the season they were all confident that their favourite team would walk away with the Premier League title. In this article they explain why that just didn’t happen.
I think Leicester City won the Barclays Premier League because of their truly outstanding teamwork and deep belief. At the start of the season the bet for Leicester City to win the league was 5000/1 and there were few takers!
The reason why my beloved Manchester United failed to win the league is because they just didn’t work as a team and their manager struggled to get his message across, especially early season.

In my opinion, Leicester won the league because of their fabulous teamwork – the hallmark of all successful teams. Look at Barcelona and the best teams in the world, they all work brilliantly together. They always seem to hold their own against the big teams.
I support Tottenham, the reason why I think they didn’t win the league is because when it came to minor games like West Brom for example we drew 2-2, which is not good enough when Leicester are winning their games. But the Foxes had their share of luck in some games when the referee made wrong calls for penalties or free kicks.
Anyway, well done Leicester for outplaying everyone in the league.

I think Leicester won the league because of their young talent. Jaime Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Kante have been the stars of the team and personally I think they deserved to win.
My Red Devils however didn’t perform very well. Louis van Gaal, our manager, hasn’t been the best coach and has wasted far too much money on players.
Next season, I think Leicester won’t win the Barclays Premier League but you never know, they’ve done it once.

In my opinion Leicester won the Premier League because the whole team worked together and that is what you need when you want to win the League. The Foxes have such talented players and that is all thanks to Claudio Ranieri; they are worthy champions.
I support Chelsea and the reason we didn’t win the League is because our heads soon dropped whenever we conceded a goal, and invariably more would follow. The Bournemouth game was typical. We were one nil up and we somehow let them score three goals. That’s my reason why Chelsea did not win the Premier League.

The reason that I think that Leicester City won the title is simple: counter attacks. I have watched most of Leicester’s games and with Vardy, Ulloa, and Okazaki up front they have pure pace to quickly sprint forward and score. The possession stats don’t lie; Leicester has the lowest in the BPL!
My favourite team is Manchester United and I think the reason that they didn’t win is because Louis Van Gaal has not yet found his managerial feet in this league. The other reason is their defence; their attack is brilliant but their defence needs some work. I hope and pray that Manchester United get some consolation by winning the FA Cup.
