Leicester finale versus QPR one to savour for supporters

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson commends his side for the impressive run that led to securing safety from relegation.

By late February fans feared Leicester would have nothing to play for by the time the season finale versus Queens Park Rangers came around. Leicester looked certain for a swift return to the Championship, but manager Nigel Pearson had other ideas.

Leicester's bullish boss -- who claims to be "touchy feely" behind closed doors -- masterminded six late-season wins, starting with April's 2-1 victory over West Ham, to somehow survive with a game to spare. Leicester have taken 19 points from their...

Free beer laid on for Leicester City fans after relegation avoided

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson commends his side for the impressive run that led to securing safety from relegation.

Having risen phoenix-like from the relegation zone's murky depths -- with six wins from eight games -- to secure their Premier League status for another year, spirits are understandably high at Leicester City at the moment.

As such, the club's owners are hoping to facilitate a party atmosphere at the King Power Stadium for the final game of the season against QPR on Sunday by laying on free beer for the fans in attendance.

Leicester vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha has announced that every...

Jamie Vardy deserves England call-up after sparking Leicester revival

Jamie Vardy (right) has been called up tp Roy Hodgson's latest England squad.

Jamie Vardy's England career is likely to be short, so he should enjoy his surprise call up.

The 28-year-old will savour featuring for the Three Lions in June's friendly with the Republic of Ireland and the Euro 2016 qualifier with Slovenia.

Only three years ago Vardy was playing non-league football for Fleetwood, while flash back five years and he was turning out in front of fewer than 500 fans for Stocksbridge Park Steels. Now, in an astonishing fairytale, he's on Roy Hodgson's radar.

In reality...

Like or loathe him, Nigel Pearson deserves respect for Leicester escape

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson was delighted after securing Premier League survival following Saturday's draw at Sunderland.

Armed with only a walking pole, Nigel Pearson once fought off wild dogs in the Carpathian mountains, yet even that tale of raw survival pales into insignificance compared to Leicester's great escape.

Two months ago the Leicester boss had totally lost the plot. City were rooted to the foot of the table and Pearson's reputation was plummeting. Rumours regarding his departure were unfounded in the end but it was clear he was under threat.

1. Foxes survive; Sunderland close too

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson may be so proud of his ability to stick his head in the sand, but he should be even prouder that his team are head and shoulders above the relegation zone. After a trying and at times controversial season, Leicester are officially safe from the drop.

Sunderland are almost there too. A 0-0...

Leicester survival fight reaches final phase vs. Sunderland

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson has hailed his men for their brave fight against relegation.

Astonishingly, despite 140 days at the foot of the table, Leicester don't need to win their penultimate game against Sunderland in order to survive.

Of course if they do they will guarantee their Premier League place, for next season but as long as the Foxes match Hull's result at Tottenham, they are virtually safe. That's the beauty of their superior goal difference.

Only a loss, coupled victory for both Hull and Newcastle (who travel to already-relegated Queens Park Rangers) could leave Leicester...
