    After their 2,000 to 1 shot miracle season of 2015-16, I honestly didn’t think we would hear much more from Leicester City. Sure, they managed to keep enough of the guys around that made it happen, and they got to dabble a bit in European football. They lost N’Golo Kante to Chelsea, Riyad Mahrez to Citeh a season later, went through several managers, yet they’ve stayed up, relatively comfortably. And they’ve lost Harry Maguire and Ben Chilwell post championship. They figured to eventually be consumed and relegated, given the disparity between they and the bluebloods of the league. Their Thai owners didn’t figure to compete with the Middle East oil fiefdoms and Russian oligarchs for viability in the top tier. Yet today, here they are, winning another big trophy with their splendid performance against scum in the FA Cup final, and poised to finish at least 3rd or 4th, earning Champions League competition again.
    My question is:
    Why can’t this be us?
    Why can’t this be US?
