ROBBIE FOWLER: Leicester lead the way on my New Year’s Honours list

Date Posted,December 31, 2016

Happy New Year to readers of this column… even if we all know there could be hell toupée in 2017!

In that spirit (and yes, it was a Donald Trump joke for those with bad ­hangovers) here is my New Year’s Honours List, celebrating what has been 12 months of football surprises bigger than even the American elections.

The biggest gong goes to Leicester .

I know they haven’t performed for the whole of the year, but their title win was a bloody miracle.

Even with five or six games to go, they were still given no chance by some.

Look closely and they lost one Premier League game from January to May… and even that was in the 95th minute at Arsenal when they were down to 10 men for almost all the second half.
