Yet another win for the mighty Foxes, with six wins from the last seven games this nearly equals the record that we set in 1993. On one hand I don’t want to see that record that we worked so hard for broken, but on the other it is a massive achievement for the team. A lot of credit has to go to Nigel Pearson and the team.
With Leeds being thrashed 6-0 by their arch Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday I knew Citu would be in for a tough game. However the lads did so well and managed to grind out a 1-0 victory. That for me is the sign of a promotion winning team who can go anywhere and get a result without necessarily playing to the best of their ability.
On to new signings, I look forward to meeting both Riyad Mahrez and Kevin Phillips at the fortress that is the King Power Stadium tomorrow. I don’t know much about Mahrez but I’m told he has excellent technical ability and will be one to watch. I’ve been saying for the last 2 years that Leicester needed a finisher like Kevin Phillips and finally we have him! Don’t be surprised to see him bang plenty of goals in and I might have a sneaky tenner on him getting into double figures before the end of the season. You might think I’m mad but we create so many chances Kevin will definitely put them away! I’m very happy and the squad looks complete and I feel this season is the biggest opportunity we’ve had since I tucked the winner away to send us into ‘Dreamland’ in 1994. Magnif!
I’ve been looking at the fixtures and believe in April we can win all 7 games if my stats are right so it’s worth a decent bet! If that happens, promotion will be gained early, but I suspect Nigel Pearson already has an eye on his squad for the Premier League and he will want to plan well ahead for that eventuality. It will mean players in the present squad going all out to prove they deserve a chance in the top league, what better incentive to get those all-important results right now!
