Before Saturday’s match I was feeling very confident! I was hosting at the King Power Stadium for 137 guests in the Lineker Lounge. I predicted a 3-0 victory for the boys, and they didn’t let me down! I wonder if Nigel Pearson would still say that I can’t mention promotion? I really feel that 2014 is LCFC’s year and I can’t help but hope that they not only get promoted, but do it in style by winning the Championship!
Charlton have been the thorn in our side in the past, but on Saturday they faced a very different team. Kasper Schmeichel had an easy match, according to the stats Charlton only made 1 on target shot for a goal. They were completely outclassed by LCFC who played with impressive professional destruction that cemented their top of table dominance. Personally, I couldn’t have picked a Man of the Match as the whole team put in an outstanding performance. Match sponsors, Gatorade gave their MOM to Wasilewski who never put a foot wrong.
Yet again, Danny Drinkwater was brilliant. Week in, week out his performances are consistent. He has also formed a good partnership with Matty James in midfield, they always play very well between each other, Vardy and Nugent. All will be important Premiership players for next season. We couldn’t have asked for more from the Charlton match, three terrific goals and no goals conceded.
On Saturday after LCFC’s win, Birchy and me went to Loughborough Dynamo FC for a Q&A evening. It was a great night and we told some highly entertaining stories to a great crowd. If anyone would like to book us for an event you can email, [email protected]
I know its always good to win but the England display must leave Roy Hodgsen with a few headaches. Kasper Schmeichal was man of the match for me with some trademark LCFC saves. We must sign him up quick as his contract talks drag on. But from an England point of view sloppy defending at times being cut open imagine the top teams players Messi/Aguero/Suarez are going to do? A little worrying for me but like the way Roy is developing youth with experience and his starting 11 should be good enough to compete against the big boys. Injuries is the last thing he needs and Wiltshere a big blow for England & Arsenal. i thought the only players to shine were Gary Cahill and best of all was Raheem Sterling who is a real threat. All the hype surrounding Luke Shaw finally got his chance and will be satisfied im sure with his performance. The reliable Gerrard has to play and Oxlade Chamberlain another threat with his pace so if we do get the right balance things could happen but im not putting any money on us at 25/1!
