We are 8 games in to the Premier League season and what a rollercoaster of a ride we have had so far! The Foxes have Gained 9 points with 2 wins (Against Stoke City and Manchester United) 3 Draws (Against Everton, Arsenal and Burnley) And have 3 losses (Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Newcastle) Scoring 11 goals in the process but conceding 13 goals also leaving the foxes in 15th just 2 points ahead of the relegation zone.
Our Next 8 Premier League Games come against Swansea City (A) , West Brom (H) , Southampton (A) , Sunderland (H) QPR(A) , Liverpool (H) , Aston Villa (A) , Manchester City (H) . Realistically we should be able to gain atleast another 8-10 points to keep our points total ticking over…
From our 11 goals scored Club Record, Summer signing Leonardo Ulloa has scored 5 Premier League Goals so far this season, with Jamie Vardy, Jeffery Schlupp, Esteban Cambiasso, Riyad Mahez, David Nugent and Chris Wood all scoring one Premier League Goal so far..
We have also had the chance to watch all but TWO first team summer signings. With Matthew Upson still on the injury table (unlikely to see him till january) and Nick Powell Yet to play. We want to know who has been Leicester’s Best Summer Signing or are we yet to see the best player in terms of Matthew Upson and Nick Powell.
Neither of the Premier League heavyweights have yet made a move for the England U21 international but are both keen on the centre-half
Young Leicester City defender Liam Moore is being scouted by Arsenal and Manchester City both are monitoring the England Under-21 international.
The Leicester City Defender has been hugely impressive during the foxes promotion campaign last season and they tied him down to a new three-year deal in the summer.
But that may not dissuade either the Gunners or champions City from making a move after compiling their scouting reports on the 6ft 1in defender, who can play right-back and centre-half.
Manuel Pellegrini want to boost their number of home-grown players so Moore could appeal to them as a long-term prospect. Where as Arsenal are also determined to strengthen their defensive options in January after leaving themselves short at the back.
It remains to be seen whether either club will follow up on their recent scouting missions to check on Moore.

Tie Breaker… Who Scored Leicester City’s First Premier League Goal Of 2014/2015 Season?
Nigel Pearson claims he could not risk Riyad Mahrez at Newcastle on Saturday but expects him to feature in Leicester’s next game against Swansea on Saturday
Mahrez was left at home at the weekend as the Foxes went down to a 1-0 defeat at St James’ Park, with Pearson deciding he would have risked injury had he taken him to Tyneside.
The winger played twice for Algeria during the recent international break and only returned to Leicester on Thursday, with the City squad travelling to Newcastle on Friday. Pearson believes it was the best decision in the long term to leave Mahrez behind and hopes to have the 23-year-old back firing on all cylinders by the time they face Swansea on Saturday.
Leicester City will travel to Swansea on Saturday, Hoping to win which will end a three-game winless run! Since Leicester beat Manchester United at the King Power Stadium last month, The foxes have just picked up one point from a possible 9. Drawing with Burnley, Loosing to Crystal Palace and Newcastle.
Swansea have fared a little better in their last three outings, Taking just 2 points from a possible 9. With two draws and a defeat in the last 3 games. However, the last time swansea won a Premier League Game you have to go back to the end of August where they won 3-0 against West Bromwich Albion… At Home.
If you can’t get to the match, 100%Lcfc will be covering the game live with Interactive Updates on all of our Social Media!!
So Leicester City have had a positive start to their first season back in the Big time in 10 years, sat with 9 points which some would have said was a fantastic start, most city fans probably think we should now have 11 points after the last minute injury time goal conceded against Burnley.
Next up is an away day to the Toon… Newcastle, as ever under delivering and giving their massive home support precious little to cheer about, and without a win this season, looks like it could be a match with two radical different ends…
Option 1, Leicester carry on their great start, and snatch an away win and Alan Pardew gets the boot. Its been on the cards, and Toon owner Mike Ashley has given Pardew the dreaded “vote of confidence” followed by “if we don’t win at Stoke he is out” threats…. If a newly promoted team such as the Foxes arrived at St James’ they could deliver a killer blow to Pards tenure at the helm.
“Ok, so that’s what all the Blue Army is hoping will happen, and I think it will !” says 100%LCFC Phil Holloway
Option2, Leicester can beat Man U, get draws against Everton, Arsenal and win away at stoke…. Yet “slip” on banana skins such as Palace away and Burnley at home, games most fans would hope we picked more points up…. “One point from six, not good enough”. So the Foxes can be erratic so far this season, most would say a City away win is another brilliant performance, but with Newcastle struggling we honestly expect to pick up a point at least. But we all know Leicester.
So if you want a flutter, we think you are not going to want to invest in either result, as it is one of those matches which really could go either way. The bookies don’t get it wrong very often and Leicester’s very own Mark Jarvis has it a Newcastle to win at 11/10 , a Leicester win at 9/4 and the draw looking favourite at 12/5.

What does YOUN9Y think, well we asked him what he thought pre match, and the Big Man said….
“it will be tough, when the Newcastle fans get behind their team, St James’s Park can be a formidable stadium, but they will turn quickly if City take the initiative. I expect the lads to play with that #fearless attitude again, and if we can get our noses in front, then the anti-Pardew crowd will be in full voice, which will only help our lads get a win. For me, I see a Leicester Away win !”
We tend to agree with Alan Young, if Leicester can whether the early storm, then Newcastle, who have only won 5 Premier league matches out of 27 in 2014, then a great away day is on the card.
Our ONLINE Fans poll is all about our Italian legend…. CAMBIASSO… we think he was missed in the Burnley game, we think we need his skill and experience in the middle to boss the midfield… do YOU agree ? Vote below and we will be chatting about the results during the LIVE radio show .
