Perennial also-rans Leicester City are on the verge of completing one of the most remarkable fairytales in modern sport. The club that has spent much of its 132-year existence yo-yoing from the top tiers of English football are one victory away from a maiden English Premier League title.

The prize could come as soon as Sunday (kick-off 11pm AEST) when they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford - and former Melbourne software developer Hugh MacLachlan will be there to cheer his team on - as he has been for much of the last eight years.

Back then, the only EPL on Australian TV was a weekly highlights package on the ABC. The first game he saw live was in 2003.

Excited by the "buzz" he felt in an online fan forum dedicated to Leicester, MacLachlan decided in mid 2007 to move to the UK the following year.

Since arriving in 2008, when the club was at its lowest point after being relegated to the third tier for the first time, MacLachlan figures he has been to 60-70 different grounds.See more news and guides for playing Cheap fifa 17 coins game at our site, you can also buy the Cheap fifa 17 coins from us.
