It might seem foolish to talk about a football competition and a democratic election as if they were comparable. Maybe I've extrapolated a certain mawkish sentimentality from the simple facts. Maybe. But if they only other option is certainty of failure, I'll take possibility of the improbable, thanks.
With the success of the Foxes, the city itself will at last get the recognition it deserves. When people across the world spin a globe, they will point to Leicester; when they visit the United Kingdom, they may now make the journey to the centre of world club football, the King Power stadium. Leicester's motto, 'Semper Eadem' means 'Always the Same'. This is a rare moment to disagree with history, but things are not the same in Leicester anymore, and they will never be again.
The Foxes have proven that passion and strong teamwork can transform dreams into reality. If your small business is taking off, getting the right structure and conventions in place now can help you preserve the organic impetus that got your business where it is today. Who knows, maybe in a few years you'll be leading the pack...?
On the other side of the coin, spending big and adding too many new faces could just as easily wreck everything that has been built. But again, as things stand, the current Leicester side has a limited shelf life. What it really comes down to is how this season and its significant achievements are viewed within the club. Is this the pinnacle, or is it only the beginning?
