It was a good week in Leicester land. With another win in Champions League and a return to winning ways in the Premier League, there was plenty to celebrate for the Foxes. With that said, we here at the Fosse Posse thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of the best social media posts about the team after such a positive stretch. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do:
This one seems pretty generic but just look at that grin from Ahmed Musa. That is the face of a man who enjoys playing in Champions League. He didn’t actually play in the match but no matter, he was busy challenging Shinji for the title of best smile.

Indeed, Gary. Premier League? Meh. Champions League? More please.

The magician seems to love the bright lights of European competition, but Claudio’s probably right, it’s something about that song. “The Champions!”

Well played by the Champions League account here. That heroic save by Kasper deserves all sorts of praise and they’re playing their part. In all honesty I don’t think you can say enough about the save. Legendary stuff from the Dane.
@kschmeichel1 @LCFC How did it feel to make that stop at the end, Kasper?— Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) October 18, 2016
Could there be a more aesthetically pleasing sight? Doubtful. Leicester’s story is the gift that keeps on giving. And to make it even better, they - along with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona - are one of only three teams to have a perfect Champions League record this season. On top of that, they’re also the only English team in history to win their first three games in Champions League. Fearless is beginning to sound like an understatement.

What a wonderful throwback. If that’s not foreshadowing then I don’t know what foreshadowing means. The video perfectly encapsulates the magic of Riyad Mahrez.

The Tinkerman turned 65! Sir Claudio himself has been nothing short of a gift to Leicester, so his birthday provides us all with an opportunity to truly admire how special he is, both as a man and a manager. Happy belated Claudio!
Happy 6️⃣5️⃣th birthday, Claudio Ranieri!— Leicester City (@LCFC) October 20, 2016
Look at this man. The Austrian Fox has blessed us fans with another three years of his presence, and boy did he know how to celebrate it.

What a thumping strike that was. Talk about theatrics; his first goal for the club coming in his first game after an extension and on a hit like that. Goodness.

Cheeky, Gary. Moving on.
For Fuchs' sake. What a goal from @FuchsOfficial his first for Leicester!— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) October 22, 2016
Always good to end with a laugh, isn’t it? Somebody get this man his lunch!
