What Chance At Leicester?
What chance of Blues winning at Leicester? Well, not bad in my book. Putting aside the well worn saying of it being a free hit, we are now not a bad bet with the players available to Mowbray. Jay Stansfield, for example, who reminds me of a younger Jamie Vardy. As we have witnessed more than once already this season, Stansfield has pace and takes his chances in front of goal with confidence and aplomb.
Add the general improvement in team organisation since our new manager’s arrival, particularly tweaking the defensive formation, and you can see why confidence is currently high with many supporters.
Prediction of a result is always tricky. But for this upcoming game I am full of confidence myself, and therefore I predict a Blues win. That has nothing to do with Leicester, who are comfortably top of the league, possibly having their “other things on their minds” like Premiership promotion. No. It is the overall performance of our new Blues under a proper, experienced manager with a very safe pair of hands that convinces me we have more than a chance.
Tony Mowbray has already gained popularity with Blues fans, and rightly so. It is still very early in his tenure of course, but his knowledge and the way he has explained how he sees the club progressing in the Championship this season is obviously reassuring. But away from the league I have no doubt he would like a good cup run. And why not? The performance against Hull City in the third round replay showed a determination to succeed.
We can all stick our necks out from time to time and run the risk of ending up with egg on our faces. And football matches can be particularly difficult to call. But what chance Blues at Leicester? You know my view.
