Well, we are nearly at the end of a fantastic season and LCFC has been rightly crowned champions after another fantastic result up at Bolton. Lloyd Dyer put the icing on the cake in the 62nd minute of a game we had 62% possession and our 96th point of the season was in the bag.
We have now won 29 games and only lost 6 so far in a season that will match just about any in our history and all us fans have enjoyed the ride to the premier league.
Only two games left and today we travel to Huddersfield and meet up again with a Leicester City old boy, Mark Robins who is doing a great job at the John Smiths Stadium. If I see Mark he might have an interesting take on the events at Old Trafford where he once saved Fergie’s job and now they are in a bit of turmoil! Older fans will remember Mark’s time at Filbert Street when he joined us in the relegation year of 1995, but then great memories of the 1996 promotion under Martin O’Neill and the unforgettable cup win in ’97!! A final note about Mark – when he left Leicester he had a very successful move to Copenhagen where he picked up a fans nickname with his fellow strike partner of Batman and Robins. I might remind him of that one!
Back to us, and LCFC sits proudly at the top of the league with 96 points and our last two games should give us every chance of breaking 100 points, but what really matters is getting into the top league with all the massive fixture that brings. Before then we finish off the season at the King Power and what a day that should be as the trophy will be ours after what will be a tough test against a Doncaster team scrapping for their lives and I will add a bit more next week in my final blog of the season.
In fact, it just might be my very last blog as I am tempted to change my weekly ramblings into a fortnightly podcast for the Premier League and I will be joined by a few footballing mates and contacts to bring you views about our progress next season. I will have a think over the long summer when all there is to look forward to is the small matter of a World Cup with England competing against the best of the rest!
