Three FA Cup Quarter-Finals

Leicester’s trip to Chelsea will be the Foxes first FA Cup Quarter-Final since 2005. City’s last three appearances have been linked. Here are the videos, the link is below.

Leicester City 5-2 Shrewsbury Town – 1981/82

Leicester City 1-2 Wycombe Wanderers – 2000/01

Blackburn Rovers 1-0 Leicester City – 2004/05

So what’s the link?

The last three managers to take the Foxes to this stage of the competition were not in charge of the team a year later. Jock Wallace left the Foxes after City’s promotion push ended in disappointment. Peter Taylor was sacked after the Foxes failed to recover from that shocking defeat to Wycombe. Craig Levein was dismissed after his Leicester side dropped into the Championship’s bottom three less than 12 months after City’s last FA Cup quarter-final appearance.
