'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Deja Vu?

England`s failure to perform against Macedonia might have surprised the majority of football fans on Saturday, but for Leicester City fans the performance was similar to what they have been made to watch at Leicester so far this season.

Before the England game the team and manager were fully confident that they had done all the preparation they could have done. However, when the players went out onto the pitch they failed to create any real chances. Macedonia were more then happy to sit back and soak up anything England could throw at them.

This seems to describe the majority of home games for Leicester so far this season. Games against Burnley, Hull City and Colchester United have seen the away teams come and play defensively and Leicester simply haven`t been good enough to break the teams down.

All three of these games Leicester fans would have expected City to win. However, Leicester didn`t even manage to score a goal in the three games and only managed to pick up one point.

The national media have rightly highlighted England`s problems against Macedonia and have demanded a quick improvement for the game against Croatia on Wednesday. Although the local media haven`t highlighted Leicester`s problems, the fans have started to voice their concerns.

England have another international game against Croatia on Wednesday and then they domestic league kick off again on Saturday. The majority of Leicester City fans will be hoping that both England and Leicester can improve on recent performances and start to break down those teams that are happy to play for a point.

I dont think Croatia will want to settle for a point on Wednesday so it will be a open game.
