Leicester could win the Premier League title this afternoon if they pick up all three points from their game against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
“Blackburn Rovers once proved that with an outstanding striker, Alan Shearer, and a well-constituted team under Kenny Dalglish, an unfashionable club could become champions,” the 47-year-old wrote in her football diary in The Sun (Sunday, December 7 entry).
“In Jamie Vardy and the dazzling Riyad Mahrez, Leicester have two instinctive scorers in a side designed to counter-attack at speed. Yes, they can do it. And wouldn’t it be wonderful?”
Brady has now reminded everyone what she predicted about Leicester midway through the season.
“Tottenham’s below-par draw with West Brom leaves Leicester within touching distance of the title,” the West Ham vice-chairman wrote in her football diary in The Sun (Monday, April 25 entry).
“Halfway through the season I suggested they could win it and was declared mad. Now people more knowledgeable than me are saying the Foxes are a flash in the pan and there’s no chance of them or any team other than the richest winning next season.
“First of all, some flash, some pan. But I believe it can now happen to any club because the new £100million TV handout applies all round and Leicester, with good scouting and tactics, have shown us all our chances have improved.”
Even if Leicester lose to United today, they should be able to get the points they need in their final matches to clinch the Premier League title.
Claudio Ranieri’s side are not the best in the English top flight in terms of genuine quality, but all the players have done well this season and have played as a team.
It would be one of the greatest achievements in English football history if Leicester win the Premier League title this campaign.
Meanwhile, West Ham still have a chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League this campaign.
