I posted a couple of weeks back that whoever won this division would do so by default - and Leicester fans fell over themselves in their rush to tell me how they were taking the division by storm. Well back to back defeats have nailed that boast well and truly. Leicester were crap last season and are little better this. The only difference is that the quality teams and the half decent players outside of those teams are no longer in the division. But Leicester will still struggle to claim a promotion slot, mark my words!
Full credit to Zola's Watford, however. Leicester needed a result today but were not good enough to secure one. Watford are now up to 15th in the table! Much higher and the Hornets will suffer from altitude sickness!
Meanwhile, Forest and managerless Blackpool were both thumped 4-1 by no mark opposition. Palace are up to third and Miserablebrough are suddenly level on points at the top! Leeds, meanwhile, are eight points adrift of an automatic promotion place and have sunk still lower in the table. It's going to take divine intervention from Allah to avoid the play off lottery from here - if they can ever get into the top 6 that is!
