Manuel’s under pressure from everywhere. Eleven games left, we could win em all if we put our minds to it, starting with Leicester tomorrow night, who are on a bad run. Just like Sunderland last year who we drew with after losing to Liverpool last season. So here we go with the It’s A Fix extract from KK222 :
28) WEDNESDAY MARCH 4TH : LEICESTER (HOME) KO 7.45PM
Promoted last season in top spot. 90th league meeting. 3 times League Cup winners. Recent connection Kasper Schmeichel
Some celeb fans : Noel’s mates Kasabian (top performance in Amsterdam says Funboy), Roy Cropper (Corrie), Rustie Lee, Willie Thorne, Eng. Humperdinck, Gary Lineker, Showaddywaddy, Sam Bailey
This season so far : They’re in 20th place with 18 points from 26 games and 2 wins 2 draws and 10 losses away from home.
At Leicester in December it was an unconvincing 1-0 City win, Frankie Lamps getting the winner (40). Crowd was 31,643 with 3216 Sky Blues.
In the Capital One Cup: they lost 1-0 at home to Shrewsbury in the 2nd rd.
In the FA Cup they beat Newcastle 1-0 at home in the 3rd rd, Spurs 2-1 away in the 4th rd but lost 2-1 at Villa away in the 5th rd.
Form at home to Leicester for City: Last meeting
In the Prem was a 3-0 loss at COMS in 2003/04 and worryingly they’ve won the last three in Manc.
For City :LLLWWLD
Comment: Major struggle for The Foxes this season but from what I’ve seen they’ve been incredibly unlucky apart from the 5-3 drubbing over the rags at home.
Nigel Pearson’s has had his moments, with his fan and opposition player plus being sacked and re-instated.
WWTWTWShite: Averaged 10,157 in 87/88 and this season it’s 31,729.
