Saturday saw the mighty LCFC dispatch yet another victim. I won’t lie, I had some concerns in the first half about whether we could keep hold of our undefeated record. Blackpool looked more dominant in the first half of the game and managed an early goal. This time last season LCFC would have admitted defeat after that, but not now! The determination by the team when they were 1-0 down was brilliant, they turned the game around easily and tore Blackpool apart. They are now firm favorites to go up and in the process could break all club records at this rate!
When LCFC were 1-0 down, I knew that all they needed was one goal for a confidence boost and they could go on to win the game. The first goal came in the form of a sensational strike from new addition to the team, Riyad Mahrez. He powered down the right wing to unleash an unstoppable shot. Mahrez is looking really impressive at the moment and seems to have settled into the team with ease.
Throughout the rest of the match there was plenty of chances created, it’s a shame that we didn’t score more than 3 goals as we definitely had the chances! LCFC’s second goal was an absolute cracker from Wes Morgan. As Captain of the top team in the Championship it was great to see him get a goal. After a great second half performance, Kevin Phillips just topped off our lead by getting a goal against his old club. Excellent!
A big well done to Nigel Pearson and the lads, I really hope we can keep this up until the rest of the season and get some club records broken!
Last Friday, my brother in law, Terry, was in hospital for an operation on his leg. Unfortunately, the surgeons were unable to save his leg. I wish him a speedy recovery, and all my support. A holiday flight to Thailand caused him to lose both an arm and leg. It’s really sad but Terry will have a lot of support from the family! I will be doing some fund raising soon for him, and our the club has been very supportive. Get better soon Terry!
