Forty Seven years, and one day, ago this Leicester City side kicked off the 1962-63 season with a defeat at Fulham. But it turned out to be arguably the club’s greatest ever season.
As late as April 15th City were top of the First Division and then they got to the FA Cup Final. They were in with a very real chance of achieving The Double.
Sadly, neither piece of silverware made it to Filbert Street. All five games in May were lost, including the FA Cup Final against Manchester United.
City finished fourth while Everton were crowned Champions.
Do you think this was City’s greatest ever side? let us know in ‘comments’…
