> And having said this morning that an experienced keeper like Ward or Williams could fill a short term gap,I’ve just looked at the squads for tonights Masters Football final which I’m about to head off for with my Dad and my lad, and guess who’s in goal for Leicester? Mr Ward himself! I’ll send a full report to Deano in the morning! Continue reading >Scouting Mission
> It was an obvious headline to avoid, but there are other reasons why I’m glad we haven’t diving into signing young Erwin.I’ll happily subscribe to the notion that we should bring in another goalie: if, heaven forbid, something should happen to Chris Maxwell, we’d be in a hell of a hole.

I’d assumed for a while … Continue reading >Can Maxwell Survive the Goalkeeper’s Graveyard?
>Dean Saunders has shown in his managerial career so far that he isn’t frightened of making big decisions, though our poor run of recent form has forced him to make more than he would have liked of late. Gavin Ward is the most high profile victim of our recent collapse, and you can understand that decision: while he hasn’t exactly been committing howlers, there have … Continue reading >Can Williams Grab His Chance?
> It was a perfect case of schadenfreude on Sunday. Chester could have scored a few but were repelled by a goalkeeper they released at the start of the year. Ward showed City what they threw away with his virtuoso display, which included one save right out of the top drawer. Oh, did I forget to mention that the save in question was made from … Continue reading >You Can’t Help Gloating!
