The upcoming match this weekend is one of the most important in the Owls recent history, but have the Foxes already made their mark?
Last weekend, football stattos might just have noticed a little touch of irony in the negative influences (for Owls fans at least) during the Blackpool loss. Leicester City doing the dirty on us early doors? Surely not.. it's just an odd co-incidence.
Blackpool manager Simon Grayson - let's see: Leicester City from March 1992 to June 1997, well over 100 matches for the Foxes (my god, he even turned out for us on loan on 2000 but let's ignore that for the moment).
The short stroppy Scottish forward everyone loves to hate, scorer and Tangerines chief protagonist at the weekend? Paul Dickov - Leicester City from Feb 2002 to June 2004, 80-odd games.
And.. I can hardly get the words out.. our very own Peter Gilbert, a Sturrock purchase, surely not the man we'd have picked as part of our first choice back four and in truth not many games for Leicester City, but he qualifies. What does that tell us? I'm not certain at this point: Gilbert wasn't there at the same time as Paul Dickov, which shouldn't excuse PG's lack of knowledge of the regular on-field behaviour of the tiny Jock whinger. I'm sure everyone knows Dickov's form.. it surprises me he's not permanently injured with stress fracture of the scowl. Peter, as an ex-Fox and a football player, you should know better. Walk away next time (if there is a next time).
At least another eleven Foxes to cope with at the weekend (Holloway doesn't count, he's a comedian).. I've had enough of them already. Backs to the wall, injuries left, right and centre, bottom three, but the time has come to hunt the Foxes down. Game on.
