If Leicester City win the PL, will it be the greatest sporting achievement of all time?

Leicester City are now odd on favourites to win the Premier League after being 5000/1 at the start of the season. When you consider the value and wage budget of the Leicester team compared to the top half of the Premier League, would winning it go down as being the greatest sporting achievement of all time? If not, which sporting upset was better?

What?!! Do you mean that spoiling and overcompensating top players takes away their winning edge?

This is hardly a new issue though and hasn't stopped these teams winning every other season, has it? I'd prefer to focus on Leicester's triumph than the failings of other teams. They have still gone out there and won the games in front of them and gained enough points to sit 5 points clear, they are top of the league on merit regardless of what's happened with the teams around them.

Yes and no. In the land of the blind 'one eye' is king, or in the land of the lame, one leg is king maybe in this case. We don't really know how Leicester would do if everybody was on top of their game, but what they've managed to do is put everyone in the shade which suits me just fine.

They just have to stay steady now for a little bit and not let it go to their head.

Well that settles that: Leicester all the way. The fans seem so delirious with all of it, not that I blame them a bit.

Greatest achievement will be beating Barcelona in the summer! Is there a date yet?

Bookies have confirmed that if Leicester City win the Premier League, the 5000/1 bets will be the largest ever winning odds for a single bet.

Going to be a really interesting finish to the Premier League now. Spurs well and truly put the pressure on with last night's 4-0 win. Will be interesting to see How a Vardy-less Leicester react to the pressure on Sunday. As much as people talk about the Leicester fairytale, it would also be some achievement for Spurs to win the League

4 more games. If they do it, it would be the biggest achievement in the history of the league yes.
