Sorry Leicester City have won just once in ten games, coinciding with a superb run by bitter rivals, Nottingham Forest that has seen the Tricky Trees leapfrog the Foxes. City now lie in the play-offs on goal difference having been rooted in the automatic promotion places just eight weeks ago.
We’re all feeling frustrated. We all want to win promotion. We all want Leicester City to succeed. It’s clear that in recent games, we’ve been playing terribly. ‘We bow down to physicality’, ‘we have no plan B’ or whatever your criticisms may be, we must remember that we still possess the same squad and backroom staff that had us flying in October and January. Try and find solace in the fact that we have the resources to turn this around.
In truth, as fans, there is little we can do. We can’t change the formation, we can’t change the personnel, all we can do is SUPPORT. The only thing we can do is get behind the team. I understand that this downturn in form is frustrating, annoying, distressing or whatever you want to call it but does a chorus of groans every time a play doesn’t end in a goal do anything to aid the team? Does a roar of boos really do anything to help a defeat? It’s the business end of the season and to fit the cliché; we have eight cup finals left this season. By all means, nit pick at the performance and the result to your heart’s content, after the final whistle. But during these eight games, turn up to all of those that you can, pick out your shirt and your scarf, sing your hearts out, whether you’re in L1, SK1, the Kop or the Family Stand. Even those in the West Stand need to put down their prawn sandwiches and drive the club to the play-offs. Be the twelfth man.
I’m not saying we should accept this downturn of form and be ‘soft’. It’s not good enough. But we as supporters need to do all we can.
People moan about the lack of fight and passion and negativity in the team. We can’t do anything about that, but we can rectify all of those things occurring in the stands.
