“The Board of Directors recognises the success Nigel has helped to bring to Leicester City during his two spells in charge of the Club, particularly during the last three and a half years. However, it has become clear to the Club that fundamental differences in perspective exist between us. Regrettably, the Club believes that the working relationship between Nigel and the Board is no longer viable.”

The Huth – You Can’t Handle the Huth

Good news from the KPS this evening – Leicester City have secured last season’s loan signing Robert Huth on a permanent three year deal…

The big German central-defender played a huge role in City’s turn-around in fortunes towards the end of last season as the club pulled off an unprecedented escape from a seemingly hopeless bottom place in the Premier League.
He was a solid presence in the heart of the defence after his arrival in January, and his domination in the air cut off the supply line of balls into the penalty area that had previously been so damaging to City



City fans will be delighted at this signing – and now all eyes will be on Esteban Cambiasso in the hope that he will follow suit…

Good start but tough end for Leicester City in 2015-16

The 2015-16 Premier League fixtures have been released…

Leicester City v Queens Park Rangers, Barclays Premier, 24  May 2015

City have a relatively smooth re-entry into Premier League business in August kicking off with Sunderland at home, followed by West Ham away, Spurs at home and then Bouremouth away on the Bank Holiday weekend, a fixture which should ensure a stampede for the limited number of tickets.
City will need some points on the board before a tough looking December when there are trips to Swansea, Everton and Liverpool (on Boxing Day) with City entertaining Chelsea and Manchester City at the KPS.
The end of the season also looks tough, with the last two away trips being Manchester United and Chelsea….

Full list HERE.

Read it before SKY and BT tear it to shreads.

The Rise and Rise of Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy became the first Leicester City player to pull on an England shirt for over ten years in Dublin last week…

Rejected by Sheffield Wednesday at 16, Stocksbridge Park Steels, FC Halifax, Fleetwood Town, Leicester City in the Championship, and then the Premier League, England….
It is the sort of dizzying rise that might be rejected by the scriptwriters at Roy of the Rovers for being a little too fantastic.
After breaking the transfer record for a non-league player when he moved from Fleetwood to Leicester Vardy had a patchy time with City. Although he got goals early on in the 2012-13 season he later suffered a crisis of confidence which led to him questioning his own talents and considering quitting the game.
But he bounced back to make a huge impact on City’s Championship title-winning season, scoring 16 goals.

Although Vardy got off to a decent start in the Premier League, and scored and generally terrorised Manchester United’s defence in the famous 5-3 win, he then went on a long goalless streak that co-incided with City’s terrible autumn and winter.
But, once again, he bounced back and hit a run of form that played a big part in City’s miraculous Great Escape.
He scored at Tottenham, and struck the vital winners at West Brom and Burnley before eventually finding the net at the King Power Stadium again in the last day 5-1 win against QPR.
His 2014-15 season wasn’t over, however, as he replaced Wayne Rooney with fifteen minutes of the game against Dublin remaining, and made a good account of himself in a game almost without incident.
He was the first City player to appear in an England shirt since Ian Walker in 2004.
Hopefully he will continue to move onwards and upwards for Leicester and England next season…
