Steve Howard Interview extract…
FOX: Although it was new to the fans and most of the players, you had some experience at League One level, did that stand you in good stead?
SH: Although Matty was the captain that season, and was good at it, I also tried to play a leading role on the pitch and in the dressing room. I would say to the lads in the dressing room, “Look it’s one season, that’s all it is. Let’s get out of this league.”
Some of the places were a culture shock for them. Southend, before they got there new changing rooms. Eighteen lads are trying to get changed in this cupboard and are going “What the …?”
And I was saying, “Just get on with it.”
It was a great season. We did what was expected of us.
FOX: Some big clubs took the drop down there around that time, like Forest and Leeds, and they didn’t come straight back…why did Leicester win the league with a bit to spare?
SH: I think our circumstances didn’t really change. There was a bit of money around and they had decent facilities. When Leeds went down they were in a mess and players weren’t getting paid some weeks. Leicester were stable and basically a good club. You felt special walking in the door, like I did at Derby. I loved being a Leicester player.
