Who Are Yer?: Leicester City
'Who Are Yer?' interviews Leicester City fan Mark this week - who owns the fans forum www.foxestalk.co.uk - and the Foxes seem to be having the same problems as Wednesday...should make for an interesting game on Saturday then!
1. You lot are really struggling in the league at the moment - how come?
We seem to dominate almost every game but just put the ball away. It doesn't help when no one contributes goalswise from defence or midfield, and the loss of David Connolly is still taking it's toll. Hopefully with the signing of a new stiker we'll follow what you've done in gaining a few more goals and wins to climb the table.
2. Do you think you'll still be playing Championship football next season?
I hope so. Unfortunately I can't see where our next win is coming from. Our away form is abysmal with 1 league win in the past year, we've only managed back to back wins once under Levein, and that was at the end of last season. It's going to be one long hard struggle.
3. What do you think of your current boss Craig Levein?
I've supported him since the day he arrived, he talks a good game and I was impressed with his plans for the club. He's building a young team, but as he says so often it's going to take 3 years. But where we are in the league isn't acceptable. I'm just hoping he turns it around, soon.
4. Peter Gilbert is likely to be playing - how did you rate him at Leicester?
We didn't get much of a look at him really. He played the first few games at the beginning of the season, but was then dropped out of the squad altogether and playing for the reserves week in week out until he joined you! From what i saw he looked pretty average. I'm suprised we sold him though because left back has been our main problem this season.
5. You signed former Wednesday target Iain Hume a few months back - how's he done?
Very well whenever he's got a chance, scored some cracking goals, 2 vs the Blades! Strange thing is his chances have been very rare.
6. Have you signed anyone in the transfer window?
Matty Fryatt from Walsall, who is currently injured at the moment so probably won't make the trip to Hillsborough. Hopefully he can solve our goalscoring problems.
7. Who are your danger men?
Gareth William's on his day. He's extremely lazy at times, but i'd rate him at one of the best passers of the ball in this league easily. Luckily for you our main threat young Ryan Smith is serving his suspension this Saturday. As is Joey Gudjonsson - you won't get a better chance of nicking all 3 points!
8. If you could take one player from Wednesday to Leicester who would it be and why?
Richie Partridge. Mainly because we've got Momo Sylla on the right wing who never looks interested or does anything positive for the team.
9. If you could send one player from Leicester to Wednesday who would it be and why?
Mark De Vries. Despite his one off show against Spurs, he's done very little for us in the Championship this season and I'm of the opinion that he holds the team back, and his lack of mobility really is painful to watch!
10. What is your most memorable Wednesday Vs Leicester game?
The 1-1 at the Walkers at few years back, the own scored scored by Paul McLaren being the highlight!
11. How do you think the Owls will do this season?
Two wins on the bounce has given you a massive chance of staying in this league now. I'd say you'll finish in the bottom 6 but will also survive, a couple of weeks ago i wouldn't have given you a chance, 7 games without a goal?!
12. Finally, what do you think the score will be?
A draw, 1-1 or 0-0. If you score first though I can't see us getting back into the game.
Thanks a lot Mark - may the best team win at the weekend!
