Boxing Day, Previous Years, how are Leicester City coping with Christmas

DATE: 26.12.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Boxing Day is a fest for football but has it always been that thrilling for Leicester City fans, going back you will find it a bit of mixed emotions, last season ending in a 2-0 defeat to Everton

Today City will play Watford in a difficult away game at Vicarage Road. To go to play The Hornets is not an easy task and their manager Marco Silva is eager to get things right after a difficult period lateley.

Last season for the Boxing Day fixture, Claudio Ranieri was still in charge, seems a long long time ago. Now it's Claude Puel who are leading the foxes to another game. His start has been quality, with a slip against Crystal Palace, but back on track v. Man Utd.

Winning Premier League was fantastic, but at Boxing Day that same season, it was no fun at all, being defeated 1-0 at Anfield. In the year before "the great escape" it was another defeat, this time v. Tottenham.

To find a win from previous events, you have to go to the next in line, winning 1-0 at home v. Reading.
David Nugent scored the winner on a penalty in the 21st minute.

But from that Boxing Day in 2013, you will find a long and great run from
Leicester City, winning and drawing games all the way back to 2004, when you will find the next defeat at home to Rotherham.

Going back to the days of
MON, you will find a run of results that really not gives any mirroring of what he did in total. MON counted up one win, two defeats and a draw. In his first season City was not in action on Boxing Day.

Gordon Milne, during his time as manager at Leicester, he had a great run of results on Boxing Day. Gary Lineker and Steve Lynex scored in the 2-1 home win v. QPR at Filbert Street, this was back in 1983.

For the next two seasons following Milne made it all briliant Boxing Day's for City fans, winning away to Liverpool and at home to Aston Villa. Milne was unbeaten at Boxing Day as City manager, what a record.

Another legendary manager,
Jimmy Bloomfield, never managed to bring all joy to City fans on Boxing Day. He had a record of three defeats, two draws and one win, but that win was against Derby, with goals from Bob Lee and Frank Worthington, and it probably made up for all the missed chances in previous seasons.

The game today will be one to follow and you can also make
