Well City fans, players and staff, our whole season looks to be coming to a very anticlimactic end. Unless we can dig deep and scramble to get some results in these last few matches, its looks as though we may not make it to the play-offs after all. I haven’t cancelled the Wembley coach just yet, but the odds seem stacked against us now as we have a tough few final matches. And, there remains a cloud over Nigel Pearson’s head. The owners must be in shock at the fact that we just can’t find a win from anywhere. The gaffer said after the Barnsley match that he would be wielding an axe ready for the next game, and it will be a big test of his abilities to get something out of the trip to the Amex stadium this afternoon.
In a situation like this you need a team of strong characters that pull through and get results through sheer determination, and quite frankly LCFC are not showing these qualities. But having said this I’m still behind them and will support them to the end. I will support Nigel Pearson’s managerial skills and really hope he can pull this around. Surely a season that started so well and showed so much promise can’t just be thrown away! LCFC need to play every game like it’s a Cup Final and look for results. Even getting a scrappy 1-0 win to install some confidence into the players and fans would do for me at this point.
Every person I speak to at the moment has got huge doubts about LCFC and everyone seems bewildered by what has happened. But, we are still in a good position in the league table and I’m not going to give up hope until the maths says we can’t make it to the play-off’s.
Everyone on the pitch needs to show their quality and stand up and fight. If this doesn’t happen we are doomed to miss out. Even if we don’t get into the play-off’s, I at least want to see the team fight so we can end the season with some respect from the oh so faithful City fans who follow LCFC home and away. A sold out Brighton match tells me that they still believe!
On a more positive note, K Kong Events had its “An Evening with Joe Calzaghe” last night. What a spectacular show! Joe’s a top class bloke, and it was a great and well supported night. We managed to sell 400 tickets so the atmosphere on the night was brilliant.
Also, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who came to mine and Muzzy Izzet’s Soccer School over the last few weeks. It was a great success and we had 40 kids on each course we ran. We also had a visit from Andy King, which the kids really enjoyed.
Lastly, I want to wish the very best of luck to everyone at Leicester City. I really hope we can prove to everyone that we can do this!
Keep the faith!!
