21st Century Foxes Trivia Quiz


Having supported Leicester through thick and thin - the good times (League Cup wins, promotions, Martin O'Neill) and the bad times (relegation, no money, David Pleat, Peter Taylor) - I thought it was about time there was a quiz on the Foxes.

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. At the beginning of the 2002-03 season, Leicester City moved from their old home at Filbert Street into their new stadium, named _____________ ?

Answer: Walkers Stadium

It was originally going to be called Walkers Bowl! Thankfully, fans and sportswriters criticised this motion, and we have to be grateful that Walkers Crisps (who had naming rights) listened!
2. The first league match of the 2002-03 season in Leicester's new stadium was a 2-0 win over Watford. Which player scored both of Leicester's goals?

Answer: Brian Deane

The strike partnership of Deane and Dickov proved to be a highly potent one, and both players proved hugely popular with Foxes fans.
3. The Foxes were relegated from the Premiership at the end of the 2001-02 season, after five seasons in the top flight. A lot of the blame for the team's fall from grace was put upon the purchase by manager Peter Taylor of a hugely unpopular striker for 5 million pounds, in season 2000-01. What was his name?

Answer: Ade Akinbiyi

The hapless striker would have struggled to score even if the opposition's goal had been extended by 20 yards. Still, at least he had the decency to admit "I was rubbish. I don't blame the Leicester fans for booing me" on his departure, more than a certain Mr. Taylor would care to admit.
4. Who was voted as Leicester City's player of the season at the end of the 2001-02 nightmare?

Answer: Frank Sinclair

Very few players came out of that season with ANY credibility whatsoever. Goalkeeper Ian Walker deserved a medal in my opinion - without him the team probably would have been relegated by October - but Frank had a good season too. Sadly though, it's difficult to put out of mind a ridiculous 40 yard own goal he conceded on 2nd March 2002 at Middlesbrough! Leicester lost the match 0-1.
5. Under Peter Taylor's reign (June 2000 - September 2001), his first season in charge saw Leicester top of the 2000-01 Premiership after a handful of games. Where did the team finish up at the end of the 2000-01 season?

Answer: 13th

City reached the top after four games, but any Foxes fans will know that this was generally because of the side left behind by arguably the most popular Leicester manager, Martin O'Neill (December 1995 - June 2000). Unfortunately after he'd left to join Celtic he decided to take the team's influential midfielder Neil Lennon with him, after which the results started to go down the pan somewhat!
6. The legendary Italian player Roberto Mancini played in the Premiership with Leicester City?

Answer: True

Very briefly, Mancini donned the blue shirt and was Leicester's number 10 for just under a month at the beginning of 2001. Then he was offered a job managing Lazio and it was "Arrivederla Roberto".
7. Mickey Adams took the managerial reigns at the beginning of the 2002-03 season. Along with Niall Quinn of Sunderland, Adams was the first player sent off in the Premiership - the year was 1992. Which team was Adams playing for then?

Answer: Southampton

One of the brightest young managers around, Adams managed to turn around what could have been a disastrous season into a successful one.
8. The finger is often pointed at a certain FA Cup quarter final loss in the search for "where it all went wrong". Which second division club beat Leicester City 2-1 at Filbert Street in in March 2001?

Answer: Wycombe Wanderers

The romance of the FA Cup underdogs delighted football fans all over the country, except for those of us whose club was knocked out! I remember throwing my programme up in the air in disgust. Then I had to work a 12 hour nightshift straight afterwards. What an enjoyable day ... at least I had the memories of two League Cup victories to console me, a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in a replay at Hillsbrough in 1997, and a 2-1 victory over Tranmere Rovers at Wembley in 2000, when central defender Matt Elliott scored both goals (Leicester also won the League Cup in 1964) .. but no memories of an FA Cup victory - Leicester had been runners up in the FA Cup four times (1949, 1961, 1963 and 1969).

The '61 loss was to the double-champions Tottenham Hotspur, and both the '63 and '69 losses were to Manchester City losses.
9. Leicester City were under Administration in 2002 because of huge debts, following their relegation from the Premier League. Several consortiums were bidding to take over he club. Which ex-Leicester City player oneof those consortium?

Answer: Gary Lineker

One of the true legends of the Foxes past, after leaving Leicester City, Lineker went on to play for Everton, Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur and Japanese side Grampus Eight as well as sustaining a successful England career and eventually becoming frontman for BBC1's long running programme "Match Of The Day". Lineker and Heskey (a former Leicester striker) made substantial donations to the consortium.
10. One of Leicester City's biggest rivals is Derby County. The "Blue Army" put one over on the Rams at the Walkers Stadium on 14th September 2002 when the Foxes ran out 3-1 winners after being 0-1 down. Deane and Dickov scored two of those goals, but who scored the first?

Answer: Muzzy Izzet

The only Leicester City player to have played in a World Cup semi-final for 30 years! Izzet's moment of glory was coming on as a second half substitute against eventual winners Brazil in 2002.
