Are Leicester City facing a striker crisis?

Leicester City are currently sitting third in the Premier League with almost a third of the season gone, and our main striker looks like he’s going to Euro 2016 with England next year. We have two of the hottest properties around in footballing terms with some of the biggest clubs in Europe said to be sniffing round Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. We have scored 25 goals so far this season, bettered only by a single goal by the...

Leicester no longer need to sell to survive

There is nothing like a cup defeat to a lower league side to make you sit back and have a moment or two reflecting on your club.

Was Cambiasso replacement right under Leicester noses?

He may have left the club but his legacy lives on. While no one player is bigger than your team, Esteban Cambiasso came pretty damn close to breaking that particular rule. He only signed for one season but what he helped achieve in that time will never be forgotten by Leicester City fans the world over. He was the experienced head on the shoulders of a fledgling Premier League team. With no disrespect to Wes Morgan, when he was on the...

Leicester’s super summer deals

So n0 unusual props or footy fans dressed as a smurfs on Deadline Day. And as the window closed at 6pm it was all over by the time most of us got home. So what did Deadline Day hold for Leicester fans? Not a lot it seems. But is that a bad thing anyway? We had more departures than arrivals during this transfer window, and apart from youth players most of us had never heard of, the biggest was Esteban Cambiasso. Although this was...
