    Evening. Someone (you?) called into the Moan In quoting a stat about the number of recently promoted clubs who had 20+ goal strikers.
    Something like only 4 of the last 18 clubs gaining promotion having such a player. Can you shed any light?
    I asked this question on the FT thread ‘Sven on tonights Football Forum’.

    hi foxblogger. a quick query. i wanted to know the impact of steve howard this season. i’m not his biggest fan. could you tell me do we ever score and therefore ever gain more points since he is substituted on to the pitch, or do we actually lost points. the only positive i remember is when he came on the pitch when we were winning 2-0 at home to derby and won 4-0.

    • foxblogger says:

      Quantifying impact like this is a dangerous game, but City did gain a point after his 84th minute introduction against Middlesbrough the other week. He was part of a much improved second half performance against West Ham earlier in the season, and played the full 90 minutes in the 3-1 win at Burnley.

      Of course, some of his other introductions have been less successful. Getting himself sent off just 12 minutes after his introduction at Crystal Palace springs to mind. But I don’t think there is an example where his introduction has been followed by City losing points this season.

    Can you give me some form of stats on what Drinkwater has actually done since he’s come here?

    • foxblogger says:

      Things must be a little frustrating for Drinkwater at the moment. He’s only had four starts since he arrived and a further five appearances from the bench. It’s probably too early to judge his impact given his limited playing time.

    who was the last player we sold for decent money?

  8. Jacob says:

    Hi i think matt mills is a great player and he should be playing, but are we better or worse with him (looking at clean sheets and wins as captain)?

    • foxblogger says:

      In the Championship this season when Matt Mills has started Leicester have W10 D8 L7. Without Matt Mills in the starting lineup Leicester have W7 D3 L8. Make of that what you will.

    Fox blogger do you know how we rate the ratio of corners converted to goals this season. I don’t remember any past City side that has gained as many corners without scoring from most of them.

    • foxblogger says:

      Leicester have some way to go to match the side which between March 2009 and January 2010 went 242 corners without scoring from a single one. At the moment the count is 105.

    Hi Fox blogger do you know what our win percentage was when Neil Danns started a match (not too interested in sub appearances), I’m especially interested to know how we did when Danns actually played in his proper position of central midfield.

    Wondered if it was worth looking at where our goals have come from in recent seasons? Firstly Nugent seems to get to the mid teens by January, he tells the Merc he’s confident of getting to 20 for the first time in his career then scores about one in 12 until the end of the season. Then there’s Wood, I’d argue his goals were particularly precious because they came so early in games, I seem to recall a rash in the first ten minutes. And once we’re ahead we don’t tend to lose. With both of them losing their scoring touch we’ve no firepower. Goals from midfield – the return is dreadful – Kings has dried up, Drinkwater doesn’t trouble the scorers. Neither Dyer or Marshall look likely to make double figures. And only Keane looks like scoring a useful of quantity of goals from defence. Goals from the bench – don’t seem to be many of those either.
    Finally, separately, to what extent did our good run in January coincide with the partnership of James and Drinkwater and our loss of form with Jasmes’ injury?
