LEICESTER CITY'S 1928-29 Campaign
By Paul Rance

Share

Leicester City's most successful season in the top flight of English football, before the 2015-16 season, came in the 1928-29 season when they finished runners-up to Sheffield Wednesday. The Foxes missed out on winning the title by a single point.

One highlight of the 1928-29 campaign was a 10-0 win over Portsmouth in October. It remains the biggest League win in Leicester City's history, and six of the goals were scored by Arthur Chandler. Part of Foxes folklore is that six swans flew over Leicester's old Filbert Street ground as Chandler was achieving his remarkable feat.

That Leicester so nearly won the title was incredible after their dreadful start defensively. In the first four games the City defence leaked 14 goals. But such was the quality of their attacking players Leicester only lost one of those games - a 6-3 defeat at Liverpool. Though City won their final game of the season 6-1 against Bolton Wanderers, they also won only two of their final five games, and that was to cost the Foxes dear - and stop them from winning Division One for the first time.

Leicester City Legend Robbie Savage Brief Biography

Robbie Savage is a soccer pundit on British TV, and he is a radio presenter on BBC Radio 5's soccer show, '606'. He was formerly a professional footballer with several clubs. He also played for Wales 39 times.

Savage was born on October 18th, 1974, and was known for his combative nature on the field, which led to several disciplinary problems for him in his career. At one time he was the most cautioned player in the history of the Premier League.

Early Triumph with Manchester United

Wrexham-born Savage began his career at Manchester United, at the same time as other promising United youngsters Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, and Gary Neville. Savage was a member of the United side that won the FA Youth Cup in 1992.

Savage never made the first team at United, and joined Crewe Alexandria in 1994. Under the tutelage of manager Dario Gradi, Savage's promise began to be fulfilled and he helped the Cheshire club reach the new heights of the second tier of English football.

Glory Days at Leicester

After Crewe's promotion in 1997, Premier League club Leicester City secured Robbie Savage's services. In a successful five years at the East Midlands club, Savage won a League Cup winners' medal in 2000, when the Foxes beat Tranmere Rovers 2-1 at Wembley. In the previous League Cup final, Leicester had lost 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur, and an incident involving Robbie Savage had seen Spurs defender Justin Edinburgh sent off.

Leicester were relegated in 2002, and Robbie Savage was bought by Birmingham City for £1.25 million. At City, Savage's reputation continued to rise. Personal problems resulted in Savage requesting a move, however, and in 2005 he was transferred to Blackburn Rovers for £3 million. Savage was a high profile player for Wales during this time, but fell out with the then Wales manager John Toshack. This resulted in Savage's total international appearances record being surprisingly low.

Derby Swansong

From early 2007 onwards, Robbie Savage's career began to be blighted by injury. He joined Derby County in January 2008 for £1.5 million. In his time at Rovers, Savage had tasted European football, when playing in the UEFA Cup. But, while with Derby, Savage experienced relegation from the top flight once again.

After over 600 matches, Robbie Savage retired from football at the end of the 2010-11 season. He is rapidly becoming one of the most famous former Premier League footballers on TV, and in the autumn of 2011 teamed up with Polish dancer Ola Jordan on the BBC hit dancing show, 'Strictly Come Dancing'. He is married to Sarah, and they have two sons.
