Team History

Team History

There are a lot of great teams out there, but as you can probably guess from this blog, my personal favourite is Leicester City. They have been around for a really long time and they have an exciting history. Their success has put them in a class to compete with the best teams around, as you can see from watching their matches in the Premier League.

Humble Beginnings

Leicester City started out in 1884, and they improved enough over the next few years to join the Football Association. From about 1890 to 1909, the team played on several pitches and suffered a lot of big defeats.

Rise in Status

Throughout the 20th Century, City climbed the status ladder with a series of impressive feats. The team made it to Division Two in 1925. Then, in 1957, they won the Division Two Championship, which put them into Division One. They fell back a year later, but the taste of success pushed them to keep fighting. City went after the FA Cup three different times between 1949 and 1963, but they couldn’t take it. Despite their difficulty, they went on fighting and eventually won the League Cup in 1964.

Where They Are Now

The next fifty years or so followed a similar pattern of losses and occasional big wins, and the team fought its way through many difficult times. All of their work paid off in 2009 when the team went through a major revival that led them to the Premier League.


It only took them about seven years to climb their way to one of the top spots in football, making them one of the most popular teams to gamble on in Sportsbooks around the world. They are the classic story of the underdog becoming the alpha. If you’re a punter like me, bet on your favourite team to win the next time you watch a match, but keep LC in mind as you do, as they are likely to come out on top.

Luis Hernandez

Luis Hernandez

Luiz Hernandez Rodriguez is a new player for Leicester, but by no means is he a newbie to football. Hernandez played for Real Madrid as a youth before starting his professional career with the same club.

In fact, he could be described as a product of Real Madrid’s management style and organization, since he spent the first twelve years of his football career with Real Madrid. The defender went to Sporting Gijon in 2012 and played with them until joining Leicester in 2016.

From the looks of things, taking on Hernandez was a really good choice for Leicester, and we all hope he does great things for the club.

Big Hopes

If you look at the team history of Leicester City, you will not see Luis Hernandez anywhere. He is new to the team, and since his arrival we haven’t seen too much, but I think he will do great things. He played as a starter for Sporting Gijon and was a very strong defender during that time. LC already has a strong list of defenders and Hernandez is yet another trick up the Fox’s sleeve.

If we look at the few years leading up to his deal with City, we can see why Leicester decided to sign him. The defender played in a starting position more than one hundred times and helped his team, Sporting Gijon, reach a promotion to La Liga. That is an impressive move in a very short time and we are all hoping to see more of the same during his four years with Leicester.


It’s always a little hard to tell what the future will bring, but if we look at the past we can guess that Luis Hernandez is going to be a sold addition to the team. My money will certainly be on him.

Kasper Schmeichel

Kasper Schmeichel

Kasper Shmeichel is a goalkeeper from Copenhagen, Denmark. He has played for a lot of teams during his twelve-year career, but he is mainly known as a Leicester City player because he has been playing for LC since 2011. Schmeichel also plays for the Danish National Team and has been doing so since the start of his football career in 2004.

Teams and History

Kasper Schmeichel played for two different big clubs while he was in his youth. The first was the Portuguese team, G.D. Estoril Praia, where he played for a year, and then he moved to Manchester United. He played for Manchester for four years as a youth player, and then for an additional four years at the start of his professional career he was a Manchester loan to several other clubs.

In 2009, Schmeichel went to Notts County, where he played for a year, and then played for another year at Leeds United. In 2011 he signed with Leicester City and has been with them ever since.

Safe Bets!

Kasper Schmeichel is a force to be reckoned with, and he has enough experience on the pitch to put him among the top spots on any team. I’m glad that he plays for my team because even when he’s injured he still plays better than a lot of the other goalkeeps out there.

When I bet on games that City is playing, I also check to see if a few key players are in the game. I look out for Luis Hernandez, Wes Morgan, Marc Albrighton, and of course, Kasper Schmeichel. These are some of the players that help turn the tide when the going gets tough.


Kasper Schmeichel is a powerhouse without a doubt, and his experience on the pitch would place him among the elite on any club.
