Firstly, I’d like to congratulate Sam Bailey on winning the X Factor. I was over the moon to see her win, she’s got great talent and is a really down to earth lady. And, of course a massive LCFC fan! It was the highlight of last weekend seeing her take the title.
I still haven’t bought any Christmas presents, as per usual I’ve been so tied up in events, Dragon’s Den and football that I haven’t had time. But, I’ll worry about that next week! Hopefully you lot are more organised than me.
On to football. The last month hasn’t really been great for Leicester City, we’ve lost a lot of games we should have won and Forest and Derby are creeping up the table behind us. I think we deserved to win the game against Burnley last weekend, we created plenty of chances and it’s a shame we only managed a point when we could have had three. Every point counts at this stage in the season. City dominated the match but seemed to crack under the pressure. Their performance was certainly an improvement from Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton though!
Tuesday night saw us face the mighty Manchester City. It was great to see so many fans turn up to the match. The atmosphere was excellent! The King Power sold out like they were in the Premier League, excellent. Hopefully something we might see more in the future? Not only did we have a sell-out ground but we also had Sam Bailey sing two songs at half-time. She kept 31,319 fans glued to their seats and bought the house down, Queen of the King Power!
Anyway, I know we lost 3-1, but what a performance by the City squad. Considering Man City’s track record of goals I think we did incredibly well and we were excellent in the 2nd half. They really kept pace and Dyer’s goal against England’s keeper, Joe Hart was brilliant. Had I been playing I would have thrown in a few toe-stamps and ear-clips! But, I can’t take any credit away from Man City, they are a world class team with great balance, skill and speed. My Chelsea tip’s now in the bin, I think Man City will have the Premier league title in their hands by the end of the season.
The last month has been tough for Leicester, but I’m looking forward to seeing what next year can bring us. We’ve got QPR away this weekend which is going to be a tough match, I’m hoping we can gain at least one point from the match but a win would be the greatest Christmas present for me! It’s a shame Chris Wood is out for a month, I hope he makes a speedy recovery because I think he is needed in the squad. I wish LCFC all the best against QPR.
So, this is my last blog before the big day (Christmas!) I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and thank everyone who takes the time to read my blog!
Merry Christmas everyone!
