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

Levein On Black Ice

Speculation is mounting at Leicester City over the future of manager Craig Levein.

'Collymore' a regular poster on Foxestalk has insisted publicly today that he has information from a 'reliable' source saying Levein was given 'a month' or 'four games' to save his job starting with the home fixture against Crewe.

Leicester were expected to win that game against one of the relegation favourites but they drew 1-1 and recorded the same result against another basement side, Millwall, having a man sent off on each occasion.

So, it was four more home points lost before City travelled to League leaders Reading, went down 2-0 and were accused by fans of 'surrendering the game' before the start by playing 4-5-1 an leaving two of their best attackers on the bench for over an hour.

If the 'one month' warning is correct, and it remains unconfirmed speculation, then Levein has tomorrow's home game with Norwich and the visit to Crystal Palace on Monday to restore confidence in his regime.

An e-mail from Leicester's Chief Executive Tim Davies to a Foxestalk moderator 'DavieG' hardly dispelled concerns about the manager's future:

Responding to DavieG's view that the present situation is 'unacceptable' and his opinion that 'it was time CL was relieved of his duties', Davies replied: 'I fully understand the domination and impact on our lives...my dad first brought me down to Filbert Street in the late sixties and I have been hooked ever since.

'I also know that we should, as a mimimum be at least challenging for play offs and not where we are. We have to, in the short term, do everything to get results.'

If Leicester lose to Norwich they will have completed the entire Christmas programme and the month of December without a single victory.

Not good that on anyone's CV.
