    "Boring, Boring City!"... Shout the Home Fans...



    Leicester City fans have called for the Manager to resign after a string of dour performances
    One fan said "I don't mind the defeats. It's the manner of them."
    Leicester City are again embroiled in the relegation scrap for Premier League survival.
    They have won just 3 games all season and we are at the half way point.
    But maybe more worryingly they have only scored 9 goals in 19 league games.
    Leicester are in 18th place and have 17 points thanks to 8 draws but their failure to score is turning winnable games into draws.
    The fans are sticking behind their players but blaming Lee Bradbury the manager for his negative and defensive tactics.
    With 5 goals, Gary Lineker has scored 55% of their league goals.
    He had interest in him from Everton and Arsenal earlier in the Season but any bid failed to materialise.

    Leicester City Climb Away From Relegation Battle


    Leicester City have won 4 of the last 9 games to pull away from the relegation zone..
    They now find themselves in 14th place with 10 games to go.
    They are a massive 9 points clear of Relegation.
    This is unbelievable as they have only scored 15 goals in the 28 league games so far.
    The New Year started with a timely 1-0 home win against another side who are down at the bottom. Middlesbrough.
    Then a defeat away at Hull City in the FA Cup 3rd round was followed by two 1-0 league defeats to Man Utd and Tottenham.
    But then 3 massive games were to come. All against sides around them.
    Leicester City won all three games 1-0 to climb 9 points from games that were 6 pointers.
    They followed this up with a 2-2 draw against Southampton.
    Next they are away at Liverpool and surely that's where the 4 match unbeaten run will end.
    Gary Lineker has scored 4 goals in those 9 games and is looking to prove he can perform at this level.
    He now has 9 for the season which equaled the number he got in the league last season.

    Leicester City Survive in Premier League Once Again


    Despite winning just 1 of the final 10 games, Leicester City finish in 17th place.
    They finished with 35 points. Which many pundits believed wouldn't be enough to stay up.
    But actually they stayed up by 6 points and with 3 games to go as the 3 sides below them were very poor.
    They will need to improve for next season as it is hard to imagine any 3 sides having as poor a season when the next one gets under way.
    Of the final 10 games. 8 were defeats and that puts Lee Bradbury's position as Manager surely under threat.
    Many fans are surprised he has survived the season, but just when it looked like he was set for the axe, Leicester City won 3 games in a row in early February.
    But a source inside the club is alleged to have been suggesting that a replacement is being sort during the off season.
    Bradbury's negative tactics are the main reason the fans want a change.
    Leicester City managed just 21 goals in 38 league games. But having conceded just 38, the defence does look solid.
    Although they conceded 5 more than last season and scored 1 less.

    Gary Lineker : Rising Star



    There is a buzz around young Leicester City Striker, Gary Lineker
    Lineker who is still only 21, has just helped Leicester City to Premier League Survival for the 2nd Season running.
    He scored 13 of Leicester's 21 League goals.
    And in a side that barely attacks he is taking a large percentage of his chances.
    There are a few scouts in the crowd from the more established Premier League sides and surely
    it is only a matter of time until one of them takes a punt on the England Under-21 Striker.

    Gary has proved himself for a move - but seems like no interest from clubs which is worrying
    Are you fully managing Leicester as well by bringing in players etc?
    Or are you just tracking his career and not editing anything?

    They need to sack this manager in order to actually get some decent results, 21 goals all season?

    How many did Derby get irl that season they got annihilated? Surely Lineker needs to leave!

    Leicester are not yellow in the league table, therefore they don't have a human manager.

    21 goals in a season is pathetic. He will run riot in a decent side.

    Leicester City have 8 points from 8 games despite scoring just 2 goals!


    Just 2 goals this season for Leicester City, but they both lead to 1-0 wins.
    They were both scored by Gary Lineker. The Striker who turns 22 next month has only had a few chances too.
    And taken 2 of them to give Leicester 6 points. They have also drawn 2 games 0-0.
    They have then lost 4 games but are out of the Relegation Zone in 15th place.
    Although these defensive tactics have kept Leicester City up for the last 2 seasons, surely their luck will run out at some point.
    And Young Striker Lineker will surely be thinking about a move if this manager continues with these tactics or keeps his job.
    West Brom's Manager is also having to deal with upset fans as they have scored just 3 goals in the opening 8 games.

    Do they not leave their own half or something.
    Just take potshots from the half way line and Lineker's got lucky with 2.
    No one can play that defensive can they?

    Leicester City in the Drop Zone at Christmas


    Lee Bradbury. Fans were singing "You're getting sacked in the morning"

    After half of the 2005/06 Premier League Season Leicester City are in the Drop Zone.
    When will the board be brave enough to make a change to the Management?

    For 2 and a half season's now Lee Bradbury has not improved the side in the Premier League.
    Instead he is relying on a young striker to take some of the few chances he is given per game.
    Gary Lineker is that man and is doing the best he can. He has really come on this season and is performing well for the team.
    He has scored 8 league goals in 19 matches. The rest of the team put together have only contributed 2 more.
    It is tight at the bottom though and so any sort of run from Leicester City will give them hope of beating the drop again.
    So can the board have any more patience with Lee Bradbury? A few more defeats and he'll surely be out of the door before its too late.

    10 in 19 for Leicester is poor.
    48 in 150 for Gary is not bad. Nearly 1 in 3 for your career in THAT side is good.

    He's definitely playing like a champ this season, can't do much more than that.

    Lee Bradbury Holds Onto His Job After 4 Wins in 9 Games.



    Despite just 5 goals in last 9 games, Leicester City pick up 13 points
    They are now in 14th place and 4 points clear of the drop zone.
    With 10 games left manager Lee Bradbury believes his side need just 2 wins to stay up.
    "We've a 4 point gap. So with 2 wins and a couple of draws I don't think any of the sides at the bottom will be able to get us.
    We've come together as a group. I'm so proud of the lads. They are all as honest as the day is long."
    4 wins from 9 has given Bradbury some breathing space.
    A large section of fans had gathered outside the ground around Christmas time to protest against his management.
    But the board have faith that Bradbury can guide Leicester to safety for the 3rd season in a row.
    Of the 5 goals scored in those 4 wins, Gary Lineker has scored 3 of them.
    It is rumoured that Newcastle United have been taking a good look at Lineker and may come in at the end of the season with an offer.

    Has he been booked yet ? Even better ... sent off !

    Watching Leicester must be like watching paint dry.

    Teams immediately above Leicester have all played one game less so it might look worse when that unfolds (or better if Villa loose by 10)

    (Edit to add - Post crossed with last update)

    Back to Back Wins Put Leicester Within Touching Distance of Safety


    7 points from 5 games could have secured Leicester City's Premier League Status.
    And kept the fans off the back of Manager Lee Bradbury.

    After 2 defeats and a draw it was vital that Leicester took maximum points in the Home Game with West Ham.
    Especially with 3 away games to follow.
    And a single goal for Gary Lineker was enough to divide the sides and give City the 3 vital points.
    After that they went away to Bottom of the Table, Sunderland.
    Even with 6 games to go, they were more or less down.
    And now after another 1-0 win for Leicester City, Sunderland are down despite it looking mathematically possible.
    This is because the two sides they could catch have to play each other.
    This is also good news for Leicester City.
    They currently have a 6 point buffer with 5 games to go.

    I don't think I've ever seen such a run of poor offense from one team. This is beyond terrible. The fans should burn the stadium down!

    Still not as bad as watching Ireland under Trapattoni



    That is some seriously negative football though, even the likes of Andorra and San Marino attack more than Leicester.

    Fans might be going cracked but it's effective.

    Leicester City Break Record for Lowest Goals Tally. But They Avoid the Drop

    Leicester City set a new record low for the number of goals scored.
    Beating Derby County's record from 2007/08 when they scored 20.

    Leicester City finished the season with 19 league goals. 2 less than they managed last season and 3 less than the year before that.
    Somehow though, this was their best points tally. Registering 11 wins and Finishing with 40 points.
    They were 6 points clear with 5 games to go. And then beat Sheffield United 2-1 to surely secure their status.
    But Sheff Utd and Aston Villa went on a winning streak.
    But luckily for Leicester City, Middlesbrough picked up 1 point from the final 5 games to fill the final relegation place.
















    Young Leicester City Striker Not Called Up to England Squad




    Gary Lineker has not been included in the England Squad for World Cup 2006
    The Leicester City Striker (22) who scored 13 Premier League goals for the 2nd Season running had been rumoured to be the 5th Striker in the side. But that was not the case.
    A source close to England Manager Roy Hodgson suggested that Lineker was in the running but a late drop in form cost him any chance of a spot on the plane.
    Lineker has now scored more than 50 goals for Leicester at only 22 and is being linked to bigger Premier League clubs.
    Surely the Striker will be looking to move to a more attacking side. Although he has a good relationship with current manager Lee Bradbury and he may convince Lineker to give him another season at the King Power Stadium.

    Sign some of Villa's strikers.
    They scored a whopping 64 goals and only finished a point and a place better off!

    Is Gary 'Happy to be at the club'

    Or is his status something different?
