Leicester's plight

Sahara libre!

Just had this pointed out to me...
Leicester have used far and away the most players in the Championship. Just to give you an idea, they brought in something like 15 players during the summer. Then two managers later, they discarded a bunch of those players and brought in like 8 more in January. The main pair (at least for this week) is Barry Hayles and Steve Howard, both of whom were at other clubs a month ago. The problem is their midfield. Or lack there of.
 
But lest you think I'm exaggerating...
 
Last five matches: 14 shots on target, 2 goals scored
 
And nearly half of those 14 came in one match.
 
Zero shots on target in the last match... a match where the other team played 50 minutes with 10 men.
 
 

Sahara libre!

Ollie does not believe in playing with a midfield. It's hoofball from the back and sprinting from up front. Midfield is bypassed. We had it for five seasons. It worked in Div. 1 but not in The Championship. Ollie is a nice guy but limited tactically. Kenny Jackett was the man that kept QPR tactically aware. together Ollie & Kenny got us promoted before Kenny went to Swansea and kick started their revival too! Lonegunmen2008-02-15 14:28:05

I finally found a Leicester City thread. Well kind of. Now I know for a fact that there are two Phoenix season ticket holders whom are die hard Leicester city fans going back into the 60's and 70's. They live in Upper Hutt and they must be buzzing about their teams performances of late. Raineri has done really well there and the team look very very good. glad to see a new name challenging for the top spot. They may not last but with the style they are playing, they are certainly winning a lot of plaudits and probably 10k worth of Chelski fans as they show their true form.

So, time for the press to start taking Leicester more seriously? So, so impressed with their season so far.

I thought they were beginning to fade out but that win against Spurs makes things very interesting. 21 games in and they're equal top, who would thunk it.

No one, I guess! 

Like Foal said in the gunners thread, 5000/1 at the bookies to be top at Christmas. I think everyone expects them to fade, but they aren't showing signs of it. ESPN had an article saying Sp*rs had a shot at the title. If they're going to go that far, they might as well say Leicester all but have it won.

Still at $10 to win the title. I think they are almost guaranteed to finish top 4 baring a collapse. 9 points ahead of Man U now.
