he's not the only one...

Ollie Sickened By Defeat... he's not the only one I can tell you! So who's to blame?... where do I begin?!
- Ollie, though a nice bloke, has not exactly set the world alight since his move to Leicester has he? OK, so we were in trouble when he arrived, but it got worse. As he himself said in the Guardian, "Statistically, I'm the worst Leicester City manager in history". Still, I'm not convinced he should go and the blame is not all at his feet...
- The players - they may well have been crying in the dressing room at the end of today's match; shame they didn't show the same passion on the pitch week in week out. With the exception of three or four (Hume, Stearman, McAuley, Kisnorbo) all those 'players of promise' simply haven't been up to it. I bet the big guns who haven't performed will be the first to ask for transfers now - good riddance to them I say. Time for another clear out at the Walkers Stadium.
- Milan Mandaric - unfortunately we need his cash but any chairman who meddles in footballing affairs as much as he does is bound to be a problem. Sacking Martin Allen because the manager didn't want to bring in Hasselbaink and MM did was a scandal - why has he employed a manager if he won't let him manage. I guess this is all a bit academic as I reckon MM will be off now (sadly with his money) anyway. When he came to the club two years ago he said Leicester would be in the Premiership in three seasons or he would have failed, and that he doesn't fail... err, I've got news for you Milan!
