Leicester City now stand 10 points clear at the top of league table, could we be in a better position? There’s still plenty of matches left this season but I think it will take a lot to stop us now. Could we get that automatic promotion? I know I still shouldn’t get too carried away but I just can’t help myself. I know Nigel Pearson wouldn’t like me saying this as he knows only too well that anything can happen, but he must be feeling pretty confident and proud of his team. And a big congratulations is in order for Nigel Pearson winning the Sky Bet Manager of the Month! City are certainly in good hands. I am really pleased for the Thai owners who have backed us all the way and continue to fund the club. I’m sure they must be really pleased with the results. Just imagine how big we are going to be in the Far East if we make it into the Premiership, I know that they already have a dedicated shop in Bangkok airport!
I really shouldn’t get so carried away with my confidence in the team, but I can’t help it after watching them this season. I can’t see another team in the league that could stop us at this point. There’s a tough battle going on between Forest, Derby, Burnley and QPR and I know the Leicester vs Forest game that’s coming up will be an ‘on the edge of your seat’ kind of game. I’m sure Forest will be out to prove they can beat the top team in the league. But, they will have a challenge on their hands as Nigel Pearson seems to be raising the standards every match.
I’m really excited about Kevin Phillips joining City. I think his experience will be really good for the team and I’m hoping that he will bring in some goals. We have a full squad with a strong bench and a manager that is currently doing incredibly well. A winning combination I think!
I’ve been pretty busy again over the last week with coaching, my new book and Dragons Den Chinese. I know my Twitter followers will have seen the interview I did this week with Radio Norwich, and I have been overwhelmed with the messages of support since then. The time just after being let go by the taterpeeler was the most difficult of my life and I found it really tough to get over. The full story is coming soon, watch this space!
We’ve now got a special Valentines menu for next weekend so if you fancy treating your special lady book a table! After working hard all week, I have Sundays to catch up and read the paper. There’s nothing better than spending Sunday reading the sports pages knowing that your team is flying.
Happy days for all the Leicester City fans. Good luck once again to Nigel and the lads, keep up the good and make us proud!
There’s a few exciting things coming up for me this year. I’m just in the middle of organising a podcast that hopefully will come out in March. I’m planning on doing interviews with Nigel Pearson and his team and a few other celebrity guests. Keep an eye out for updates!
Also, I am in the middle of deciding on a title for my book, so if you have any ideas email me your thoughts: [email protected]
