Do Leicester City supporters want manager Brendan Rodgers sacked? Foxes of Leicester surveyed 1300 of them in an attempt to discover the general Blue Army consensus.

To be fair, FoL had a decent turnout for a recent social media poll. The LCFC faithful probably wanted to show their indignation regarding devolution in performance, along with the worry of relegation. And the fans have seeming spoken – resulting in an absolute landslide. You can see the tweet in question below. We asked our Foxes followers: Should Leicester sack Brendan Rodgers?; the options were: Yes, No, as well as Only if we are relegated.

As you can view for yourself, an overwhelming response transpired. The end result is certainly conclusive. If we eliminate a percentage of the 1,319 votes as non-Leicester support, and designate a few clicks as time wasters, the outcome remains evidently incontestable. A whopping 83.2 per cent voted for the Northern Irishman to be dismissed. Arguably 75% is a more realistic reflection, even 70% – yet the upshot is still incontrovertible. The Blue Army has spoken.

Leicester City visit Brentford’s Gtech Community Stadium

Ahead of just another English top-flight clash for the impressive Brentford, but a clichéd must-win for Leicester, let’s take a look at the direct head-to-head form guide of the pair. Over the previous five meetings between the two clubs, the Bees have surprisingly not won a single game. Amazingly, LCFC have been victorious on four occasions; there was one draw in that period.

Why I find the east Midlands side’s record so astonishing is because Thomas Frank’s team are doing so much better than Rodgers’ now floundering Foxes. But I suppose that is just it: in previous campaigns Leicester were ahead, the balance was subsequently addressed. And, at present, the west London outfit are in front of their upcoming opponents with respect to quality and EPL positioning. The only stalemate in the outlined series was the most recent contest in the division, emphasising the point somewhat.
