LEICESTER CITY'S 1928-29 Campaign
Leicester City's most successful season in the top flight of English football, before the 2015-16 season, came in the 1928-29 season when they finished runners-up to Sheffield Wednesday. The Foxes missed out on winning the title by a single point.
One highlight of the 1928-29 campaign was a 10-0 win over Portsmouth in October. It remains the biggest League win in Leicester City's history, and six of the goals were scored by Arthur Chandler. Part of Foxes folklore is that six swans flew over Leicester's old Filbert Street ground as Chandler was achieving his remarkable feat.
That Leicester so nearly won the title was incredible after their dreadful start defensively. In the first four games the City defence leaked 14 goals. But such was the quality of their attacking players Leicester only lost one of those games - a 6-3 defeat at Liverpool. Though City won their final game of the season 6-1 against Bolton Wanderers, they also won only two of their final five games, and that was to cost the Foxes dear - and stop them from winning Division One for the first time.
