Lots of song but no-one to dance

Lots of song but no-one to dance

Rocking All Over the World - that is clearly the theme tune for Leicester City in their search for a manager and there's little evidence the music is going to stop soon.

I suppose Rocking all over the English football world is perhaps more accurate and chairmen at clubs in all corners will surely by now have left the message with their secretaries telling them that whatever Leicester want the answer is 'no' and that they were 'going off to play golf' and may be some time.

Levein's departure was so predictable you'd have thought something would have been sorted long ago, and perhaps even a contingency plan in the event of an unforeseen hiccup.

But that is not the impression given. Steve Cotterill, Gudjon Thordarson, Billy Davies and Mike Newell are now known to be targets but even if it gets to the talking stage how long before one or other takes the reins?.

And what about the idea of Eric Black and Gary McAllister as additional candidates?.

If talks are held with just those mentioned it could be like a World Summit and we'll only have 15 games to save our souls after tonight.

What is going on? Where is the leadership? Where is the foresight?

The stonewalling of chairmen should have been anticipated. What club is going to lay on afternoon tea and invite Leicester to come in and poach their manager.

Only Notts County so far and my first reaction was why? What has he done not to deserve fighting for? I suppose it might be just an agreement the parties had so we'll let that go.

With everyone else the chairmen have acted as City would have done if they had a manager they wanted to keep (which they did once, a long time ago).

So why wasn't the timescale of making any new appointment properly appreciated?.

Or,if it was, does the Board seriously believe City will be a greater attraction if they lose more games?

Could it even be that some of the main candidates are having second thoughts now Dion's gone, the transfer window is closing, we're out of the Cup and the club looks ever more unsure of its footings.

The key game coming up is Brighton away on February 11.

Not only do we need a management team in place by then but it has to be one which will know our best team and how it should play.

The sands of time are running out and how appropriate is that as we face a trip to the seaside?
