Leicester Update

With the podcast on hiatus for a little while, everyone at Who’s Playing Who? are worried about the lack of Leicester City exposure for our readers and listeners. So, we’ve decided that the Leicester Update will return as a weekly article, so ENJOY!

There is plenty to get through this week, so we’ll start with an update of results:

RESULTS

Unfortunately since the last Leicester Update, Foxes fans haven’t been enjoying a great run. Leicester are currently sitting in 11th place, five points out of the playoff places with eight games to go. A last-start 1-0 loss at home to Portsmouth pretty much summed up the Foxes recent form, in which their unbeaten League record at home under Sven has been decimated. March saw Leicester win just one game, a 3-0 victory at Scunthorpe, but included home losses to Norwich and Portsmouth, and an away loss to runaway leaders QPR.

Fortunately Leicester have a weekend off to re-group before starting a massive April which includes seven games, but only three at home. Their next couple of fixtures against Middlesbrough and Burnley shape as vitally important in terms of their playoff aspirations, as poor results there will eliminate any chance they have. Whilst only five points adrift, there are plenty of sides in the same position, so at least five-six victories and no losses in the remaining games are needed to get into the playoffs.

TRANSFER NEWS

In some transfer news, Leicester have been linked to a couple of high-profile loan signings for the remainder of the season. The first of these, and most likely, is Fulham forward Diomansy Kamara who has had limited opportunities in the starting eleven at his current club. Sven has been after a countless number of strikers since coming to the club, and Kamara has joined the list now. For further details, click here.

Some more transfer news, Leicester have reportedly been looking to sign German striker Miroslav Klose on loan for the rest of the year.  Whilst this is purely rumour at the moment, Sven has hinted at the likelihood of Leicester signing a big-name for the remainder of the season.

Finally, some re-signing news – Paul Gallagher and Ritchie Wellens have re-signed for four and three seasons respectively. Both players have been part of the club’s resurgence since falling into League One three years ago, and are regular starters despite the large number of signings made by Sven.
