Congratulations to Leicester City

A big congratulations on finally winning the Premier League last night. It's great to see that within their team is an ex-Darlo player, well done Kasper.

How many other father/son combos have won the top division? Did Frank Lampard ever win the first division?

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

The only ones to win the premier league not sure about further back.

Curiously enough when I heard that I have a quick look and thought I knew SWP & BWP were adopted I didn't know that they themselves were not brothers. Strange that Ian and then his two adopted sons all played top level football.

The LCFC story really is an amazing one, they were in league 1 7 years ago. Plenty of pictures of Kasper's son doing the rounds and predicting him to win the trophy in a few years.

I thought Bradley was his son by birth but Shaun was not?

I used to think that but then sure I read that they were both adopted.

I have now just gone and had a look around and it does seem that Bradley is Ian's birth son, whilst the two boys share the same mother.

Seems I may have just confused myself.
