- Ranieri reveals that the inspiration for the 4-2 win over Sunderland on the opening day was a song by local rock band Kasabian

"From the beginning, when something was wrong I've been saying: 'Dilly-ding, dilly-dong, wake up, wake up!' So on Christmas Day I bought for all the players and all the staff a little bell. It was just a joke."
