former foxes manager visiting "Forward"
DATE: 17.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK
The Sunday is of course
one with new and more or less exciting news. A dull performance
against Huddersfield ended in a solid draw, but other news are here
City signing Adrien Silva is still waiting for
his full clearance to play after completing a £ 22 million move to
the club just seconds after the transfer window closed.
News are that City have won the fight with FIFA and sooner rather
than later will announce the signing of the player. Silva is as we
all know, a very experienced player at both club and international
The fact that there is a gap in midfield after Danny Drinkwater, and
certainly a signing like Silva is looked up on as one to fill that
gap in the best way possible. We are glad to hear that this is
finally a settled case, and that Silva can start playing for
The two next fixtures will be against Liverpool. Both at home and to
make a double would be perfect. The first game coming up on the 19th
of September is in the EFL Cup on Tuesday and hopefully we can see
Silva making his debut for City. Iborra should also be given a
The season has started very predictable with no positve surprises
and really not any negatives either. To be defeated by Man Utd and
Arsenal away and Chelsea at home was no surprise, to win at home v.
Brighton was something we all demanded, and a draw away to
Huddersfield is a good result.
City have a bit of injury problems with Huth, Fuchs missing in
defence. James struggling in midfield. Hopefully they will recover
as fast as possible. The introduction of Iborra and Silva will of
course be a great boost for City.
Former Leicester manager "Svennis" Eriksson is out of work at the
moment, after being sacked from his latest post in China. In an
interview with Norwegian TV he is considering all options of getting
back into management, and not yet ready to retire.
After being very succesful in previous years with IFK Gothenburg,
Benfica and several teams in Italy, and also doing ok with England,
he has seen a fall in performances and was before getting the sack
in June, in charge of a 2nd tier team in China.
This weekend he was watching Norwegian club Fram Larvik in a game,
doing the trip with his agent son, but he dismissed in the interview
that he was going to be the next coach of the Norwegian third tier
club. Fram translated to english is the same as going forward.
We just have to wait and see what will happen, but the third tier
Norwegian club is close related to the company named Abax, who is
also the sponsor of Peterborough United's stadium.
We have seen this around in Europe, with Watford being part of a
club partnership structure and that Leicester City also are working
towards the same type of structure, with King Power buying Belgian
Nothing is confirmed and written about such a structure, but Fram
Larvik is one of the most winning clubs in Norwegian football and
was a major force before World War 2, and in recent years been at
level three and two in the Norwegian league system.
They were also at one time part of another partnership called Larvik
Fotball, but when that demolished a few years back they turned their
name back to Fram, as the club still excisted in grassroot football.
