Leicester City fan on Sven, Max Gradel and the Championship ryanlufc December 24, 2010 Away Fans Views 11 Comments Thanks to Steve, who is a member of Foxestalk.co.uk for taking part. Ryan – You’ve already beaten us twice this season. Are you looking forward to Boxing Day’s clash at The Walkers? Steve – Too right I am! We have a good record against your lot and it’ll make my Christmas if we beat you again on Sunday! Ryan – Your having a bit of a mixed season so far. Where do you realistically expect to finish this season? Steve – I’m hoping that we’ll bring in some quality in January and then have a good crack at getting a play-off spot. It’s been a stop-start season so far for us in terms of form but if we get some consistency going I can see us in the top half at least. Ryan – What are your first impressions of Sven so far as Leicester manager? Steve – I’m not convinced by him to be honest. He’s hardly turned things around for us since he came in. I liked him for England but I can’t help but think that we are another stop-gap for him and he’s just taking the money. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him leave before the end of the season, we’ll just have to see who he brings in. Ryan – Max Gradel has been in outstanding form for us lately and Paddy Kisnorbo, who’s out injured at the minute, was our player of the year last year. What did you make of the pair while they were at Leicester? Steve – I though Gradel looked very dangerous for us when he played but he never really got a decent run of games which was a shame. I adored Paddy when he had him, he was always reliable and a real leader from the back. I was gutted to see him leave and I wish him all the best with the injury as will all other City fans. Ryan – Since you got taken over, you’re going to be linked with everyone in January. But if you could sign one current Leeds player for Leicester, who would it be? Steve – I’d probably go for Schmeichel in goal, we could do with a consistent keeper and from what I’ve seen, he looks like a class act. Ryan – Who should we be looking out for in your team? Steve – Andy King is a real threat going forward so keep an eye out for him. Darius Vassell is also finding some form so he could be another one to watch on Sunday. We’ve got a lot of options going forward so see who we’ve got up front. Ryan – Which 3 teams do you think will get promoted and which 3 do you think will get relegated this season? Steve – Up: QPR Swansea Burnley Down: Bristol City Scunthorpe Preston Ryan – Finally, what’s your prediction for the game? I’m going for a 1-1 draw. Steve – I’m also going for a draw but I reckon 2-2. Thanks for taking part, enjoy the game.
