Leicester City Can't Post or Reply Privately

On BBC Sport:
Leicester City have been bought out by a Thai-based consortium but Milan Mandaric will stay on as chairman of the Championship club.

Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn, who owns the club's new shirt sponsors King Power Group, will front the Asia Football Investments consortium.

Mandaric said the deal would enable the club to "secure ambitious and exciting plans" and is a "great opportunity".
Didn't Mandaric once have ambitious and exciting plans for Portsmouth?

Hopefully, "great opportunity" at Leicester City won't include more tax evasion charges. Wonder how those are going.

He has done a good job at Leicester City though. Of the clubs never to have won the FA Cup, Leicester City remain the club that have lost in the Final most often. For that reason alone, I'd like to see them win the FA Cup in my lifetime.

Leicester City and Portsmouth currently occupy the bottom two positions in the Championship.

Early days yet.

Strangely enough I have posted earlier today about Oakland Stompers one year in the N.A.S.L in 1978. Bought by a certain Milan Mandaric , he bought the franchise of Connecticut Bicentennials moved them to Oakland for one season . Then after one season in Oakland he sold the set up to Edmonton businessman Peter Pocklington to form Edmonton Drillers for season 1979 , Mandaric was President of the Drillers. Is this the same man or a coincidence ?

Apparently the same man.

Portsmouth 6 Leicester City 1

"Having won at Fratton Park on Tuesday night in the Carling Cup, Leicester's players stayed on the south coast rather than make unnecessary journeys.
But from the outset a repeat of that win looked unlikely, and with just 10 minutes gone Portsmouth were in front."


Not such a good idea then.

Sousa out, Eriksson in. The Thai money men must have gotten impatient. Nothing like a high profile manager to keep the foreign investors excited and engaged.

In the first-linked article:
Richard Bevan, chief executive of the League Managers Association, said: "How can a chairman expect to deliver success at a football club when a talented manager is recruited and dismissed within two months?

"Knee-jerk dismissals, and the chopping and changing of managers will not deliver success on the field and is incredibly destabilizing to the entire club.

"Paulo's sacking is even more disappointing in light of the chairman's comments on Paulo's appointment in the summer, when he stated he was 'delighted to acquire a manager of such great calibre'.

"Leicester City Football Club has had 14 managers since 2004 and six whilst the current chairman has been at the club.

"Clearly the club has to examine its manager recruitment strategy as their current approach does not work.

"It is damaging to the club and its fans and is an inappropriate way to treat talented managers and their careers."
Paolo Sousa must have felt he was back at QPR (13 managers in 4.5 years)! Although he did last longer at QPR, and QPR don't look like being QPR so far this season.

Sousa must be wishing he had stayed at Swansea City, an island of stability, instead of rushing out into dangerously choppy waters.

That's a bit unkind to call her odd for succumbing to the smooth talking Svedish Sven.

Sven has made a good start with the Foxes, a win and a draw from his first two games in charge.

Up to 15th now - over the last 8 league games, W 5 D 2 L 1.

Mandaric has been linked with Sheffield Wednesday:


Quote
Leicester City chairman Milan Mandaric is considering a takeover bid for League One side Sheffield Wednesday, BBC Radio Leicester understands.

Mandaric's interest comes as the struggling Owls face a winding-up order in five days over unpaid debt.

Wednesday are in talks with three interested parties but need an investor quickly to avoid administration.

....

However, Mandaric played down the rumours of a takeover in a statement to the club's official website.

"I am not currently in discussions regarding the purchase of Sheffield Wednesday or any other club for that matter. There is no secret of my love for English football and my desire to stay in the game," he said.

"Until the right challenge is presented, I remain committed to Leicester City, our owners and our great supporters."

Under league rules Mandaric would have to resign his current post at the Walkers Stadium to take charge at Hillsborough.

Leicester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admitted the former Portsmouth owner remained a key figure at the club, despite selling his stake to a Thai-led consortium in August.
