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

Levein Given Time and Money

That is the outcome of this week's board meeting where considerable speculation surrounded the manager's future at the Walker's

And afterwards Levein told the Leicester Mercury's Bill Anderson that his first priority was to find a striker to cash in on the chances being created.

All indications are that Levein's budget will be tightly limited. There is some cash but loan deals are more likely.

As Levein began his search however, Sky Sports website said that one of Leicester's hotly touted targets, Lincoln City centre-back Gareth McAuley was heading for Crewe.

Lincoln have reportedly accepted a 150,000 bid from the Railwaymen and gave every impression that the move would go ahead.

For City the target is a striker and the Mercury interview conveyed the view that other targets were 'low priority'.

Levein also said he does not want to lose any of his main players again, as happened with David Connolly in the summer, but admitted that 'if the money is big enough it is hard to say no'.

However, he added that there were 'contingency plans' in hand in the event of any key players moving on.

Really no other viable outcome. He is Tim Davies' man and so he has to be seen to support him. I for one am prepared to wait til season's end to see if he can pull us out of this. He knows what he has to do, I think he can do it. Craig Leveins plan was always centred around three years. There were going to be hiccups along the way but the plan is still there. The team he has constructed, bar maybe one or two, are a capable squad who have only had a short time to gell. They need time.

I just hope that's not the centre-half gone. Apart from Dublin I still feel we're vulnerable in the air.
