5 Minutes Demo – Respect Fans

As most City fans are aware, Union FS are leading a protest at this weekend’s game about the short notice of the game being moved.

The Foxes Trust Board would like to make clear it is fully behind the protest and to ignore any comments made by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger who is clearly out of touch with issues that affect fans following his recent comments on the planned protest and also that all of the vastly increased TV deal should be spent on players and not sharing any of the funds to reduce ticket prices.

Here is Union FS’s statement on the protest

Going to Arsenal ?

Arsenal   N5 1BU

By car  103 mls, 2 hours 15 mins

Leave the M1 at Junction 2 and onto the A1, following the signs for City (Central London). Keep going on the A1 for around six miles, until you see Holloway Road Tube Station on your right. Take the next left at the traffic lights into Hornsey Road and the stadium is about a 1/4 of a mile further down this road.

There is little parking at the stadium itself or in nearby streets. An extensive residents only parking scheme operates around the stadium on matchdays. It's probably better to park further out of London around a tube station such as Cockfosters and get the tube to the ground  - it is only about 4 miles south of the M25.  It has its own car park but this can be full and it can also be difficult to exit after the game, with most drivers seeking to come out and cross the main road to head north.

 

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The nearest London Underground tube station to the Emirates Stadium is Holloway Road on the Piccadilly line. However, this is closed on matchdays as it relies mostly on lifts to transport passengers to and from street level and this could cause problems when large crowds are in attendance. Fans should therefore alight at the next stop on the Piccadilly line which is Arsenal tube station. It is only a few minutes walk from here to the stadium.

This amazing season just gets better and better!

Manchester City 1 Leicester City 3

Report by Kate Thompson

It is such a pleasure to write match reports this season.  Week after week, I - along with many other football supporters - think the dream will come to an end, yet still our team keep confounding us all.  This was one match I thought we would lose and would have taken a point before it started, but yet again I was left feeling guilty at doubting the players' ability to deliver.

The team was unchanged again, with no place on the subs bench for new boy Amartey; Manchester City, even with their long injury list, still fielded a team of fantastic players, of whom the most dangerous - on paper at least - were Aguero and Silva. 

Just as City had learnt from the Liverpool match on Boxing Day, they showed that they had done their homework and gave Manchester City no time to demonstrate their undoubted skills. 

On another day of torrential rain, the surface must have been difficult to play on but Leicester took the lead in the third minute; from a free kick on the edge of the box, Robert Huth of all unlikely players, poked the ball past England goalkeeper Joe Hart, although a defender might have got the last touch.  Most of the first half was spent repelling wave after wave of attacks but the defence held firm and took an unlikely, but slender, 1-0 lead into the break.
