Kamara Leads the Final Push

  It may be too little too late but Leicester City pulled a fantastic performance out of the bag to smash play-off rivals Burnley 4-0 this weekend.  It was pretty special but, for me, it was home-debutant Diomansy Kamara who stood out in a top all round team performance.  Scoring the first, winning the penalty for the second and wriggling in and out of the tightest situations, he is a class act on this showing.

Kamara uses his signature celebration in Leicester City blue (

  Four goals: Premier League class linking beautifully; Kamara setting up Gally's signature penalty; a 30 yard thunderbolt; an equally spectacular curling finish.  A clean sheet, one of only three in the last eleven, from a stable and mistake-less defense and popular and confidence bringing goalkeeper.  A clean disciplinary record, 40% shots to goals conversion rate (4 from 10) and a comfortable passing performance. 

  Maye it is too little too late but five points can be made up in six matches, especially if the Foxes continue to play like this.  If not, the momentum that Norwich, Leeds and Reading experienced at the end of last season to propel them into promotion contention will serve us well as we regroup over the summer.

  As for the new big screens up at the Walkers, I am a fan.  There were some mistakes by the team working them (failing to provide a replay when promised, showing replays too quickly) but they are obviously learning and they will end up being a great addition to the match-day experience.  Well done owners.  And what a great display to test them out with?

I had a nice view of one of the new big screens...very nice!
