What a run for Leicester City! Lucky Foxes! When Thailand’s Spirits and Ghosts take over the football field, the other teams have no chance. More money for the Thai owners. It’s a Goldmine.
Thai Connections and Corruptions
Forget about Leicester run and the etxra $200 million gained by winning the championship. Thai connections. That’s where the money is!
King Power had gained exclusive right to handle duty-free sales without any competitive bidding process at all. King Power has a monopoly on retail operations at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports. 55 million passengers/year go through Suvarnabhumi airport. That’s a lot of shopping! The golden eggs were given to one company “King Power”.
In 2007, they ruled out that the contracts with King Power were illegal and thus void and ordered King Power out of the airport. But King Power is still there. Connections and Corruptions in Thailand rules.

From Disgrace to Amazing Grace
English Premier League club Leicester fired 3 players on June 2015, Manager Nigel Pearson’s son James, Adam Smith and Tom Hopp over a video showing them in an apparent orgy with Thai sex workers on a post-season tour of Thailand, while barraging them with racist, derogatory abuse. “Come on … you slit-eye.” She is “f***ing minging… an absolute 1 out of 10” and much more.
Couple of weeks later Nigel Pearson was out and Claudio Ranieri was hired as the new manager and Leicester City were unstoppable.
What kind of Luck that man has! Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha won £2.5million on card tables at casino in Leicester, just days after Leicester City won the Premier League title.
