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

Leicester left with vacant look

Having flippantly likened Leicester City's managerial search to the song 'Ten Green Bottles', there really are now only two frontrunners left standing...or so it seems in a saga which twists and turns by the day.

One is former Queen Park Rangers boss cum involuntary 'gardener' Ian Holloway and the other is the man who says little but keeps winning matches, caretaker Rob kelly.

This follows Martin Allen of Brentford voluntarily falling off the wall by categorically assuring his club's supporters that 'I will not be leaving to go to Leicester'.

And, with skipper Paddy McCarthy joining the likes of Rab Douglas and Matty Fryatt in chorusing for Kelly to stay on in his job there seems little doubt which of the two supposedly remaining options would be most popular.

If that remains the case and Kelly gets the job, could it be argued that Kelly became the first person to be appointed as manager of a Championship club by default?.

It could all be likened to a Brian Rix farce really... Leicester advertising for a manager because they had to, all and sundry applying for the job, City offering the post to no-one and every candidate gradually ruling himself out of the running.

Meanwhile, the players show in the most practical way possible who they want as boss by winning three League matches in succession.

Kelly quietly plays his part with them in rescuing the club's season and still the manager's chair remains empty because, remarkably, even Kelly has not publicly said he wants it up to this time.

As Richard Littlejohn would have said...'You Couldn't Make It Up.'

*Anyone doubting the fans feelings on the managership need only look at the Foxestalk website to see that of a poll attracting 52 votes, more than 98% wanted Kelly as manager at 1-00pm today.
