Leicester made it 3 losses in a row when they were easily beaten by Norwich 3-1 on Tuesday night. It has taken 2 days before I have been able to bring myself to think about the poor performance and actually write about it.

Once again Leicester failed to hold onto their lead after Patrick McCarthy had powered in a header half way through the first half. A Carl Robinson goal deep into first half stoppage time brought Norwich back into the game

Norwich kept the momentum after the break and time after time took apart the Leicester defence. It took until the 59th minute before some sloppy play from Leicester allowed Rob Earnshaw a clear path on goal and he made no mistake, slotting the ball past Conrad Logan.

Leicester created some pressure in the last 20 minutes but Norwich put the game beyond Leicester`s reach in the final minutes when a Robert Earnshaw shot was well save by Conrad Logan only for it to rebound of Gareth McAuley into the back of the net.

The defeat leaves Leicester only 3 points above the relegation zone and many Leicester fans are questioning what the difference is between this season and last season under Craig Levein.

Leicester went undefeated in the league in October and with the news Milan Mandaric was looking to invest in the club many fans believed Christmas had come early. However, Leicester have failed to win in November and all the optimism Leicester fans had in October has quickly disappeared.

A few weeks ago the fans were worried that once Milan Mandaric had taken over the club he would get rid of Rob Kelly due to his lack of experience. However, some Leicester fans may see this as a blessing in disguise if it were to happen now.
