Just a few days after the hiring of Claude Puel, Leicester City picked up another win to climb all the way up to 11th in the table. The Foxes were steady in their defeat of Everton who were dealing with the dismissal of their own manager.
The win makes it three in a row for City, sparking a new sense of optimism for the season:
We’re happy to have you, Claude! Keep up the winning performances and you will make us plenty happy.
Mr. Keegan, please see yourself out.
I liked Leicester's new boss. I said, "It's time for that squad to Puel together!"— Kevin Keegan (@GalacticKeegan) October 25, 2017
I was in the queue in Tesco at the time. Felt a bit daft.
We drew a home match for the Carabao Cup quarter-finals! There’s just one little problem... It’s against Manchester City who are currently tearing through any and all challengers.
Our beautiful club hero Andy King turned 29! Happy birthday Kingy. May all those who doubt you be humbled by your greatness.
Nobody does stadium presentations quite like the King Power. It’s a shame pitch patterns have been banned, but regardless it was a beautiful tribute by the club.
Mr. Manager, meet Jamie Vardy. He’ll be sure to make the transition to your new club a whole lot easier.
Demarai Gray is 21-years-old. Demarai Gray can do things like this. Please never leave us, Demarai.

Add this to the list of ruthless chants that have echoed through the stands of the King Power. I’m not sure how it ranks against “Champions of England, you’ll never sing that!” but it is certainly up there.

They were really piling it on the poor Toffees fans, weren’t they? It wasn’t long ago we were down near the bottom of the table too, but jumping up to 11th in the table will erase all memory of that.

Not sure if it gets much worse than that.
Crystal Palace are currently 4,500/1 to win THIS season's PL title...— Footy Accumulators (@FootyAccums) October 29, 2017
That's how mad Leicester winning the title at 5,000/1 was.
Turns out Demarai Gray will do that to a defense. I have decided I will refer to him as Cristiano 2.0. Am I getting ahead of myself? Possibly. Will that stop me? Absolutely not.
We may never know how true this is, and Claude Puel’s tenure has gotten off to a promising start so it’s best not to dwell on this too much. What I do know, however, is that reading this rumor made me weep uncontrollably.
WE MISS YOU CLAUDIO PLEASE COME BACK.

I am sobbing. Claudio Ranieri may be the classiest man to ever live. Now go on and top PSG in Ligue 1, you legend.
