LEICESTER City are living proof that a major cash injection cannot buy success in the unpredictable Championship.
The arrival of Thai money, Sven Goran Eriksson and a host of high profile signings set the Foxes’ a top six target.
But a horrendous start to the campaign has proved difficult to turn around, especially with a recent run of three wins from 12 matches.
They will be undoubtedly big favourites for promotion next season.
LEICESTER’S cash injection has allowed them some notable signings this term.
But the loan move for powerful Everton striker Yakubu is the pick of the bunch.
Two goals in his first two games for the Foxes suggested an immediate return on the considerable investment from the club’s owners and while he has not particularly set the Championship alight in scoring terms, he has proved a tricky customer for defences.
Superb strength and a bullet of a shot make the 28-year-old a constant danger.
