The whole world loves an underdog story – but Leicester City's remarkable season somehow takes the trope to a whole new level.

Tipped as candidates for relegation when the season began, Claudio Ranieri's men now look set to become the most unlikely title winners of all time. And BOY, has it got people excited.

Of course, it wouldn't be a triumph against the odds if the very idea of it wasn't ludicrous just a few months ago. And here are a few who found the very prospect so ludicrous that they took to Twitter last year...

Of course, Ryan

Sure they are, Ammar

Hahaha indeed, Aurora!

Ah the 'opening table' joke – classic stuff, Chris

Bloody bookies, eh Wayne?

Yeah yeah, Liam

Oh come on, Luke

You're right, Josh – it IS that ridiculous

Ha! Neither can we, Quinn

Strange move by Ranieri, alright

Lol, Shark

Exactly, Amol – that'll be the day!

Complete with flying pigs!

Ah stop it already, Ngor!
