  1. When is supposed to have met him? People speculated that if Steve was on the plan flight tracked the very earliest Lansdown would have been able to leave isolation was today, hardly going to meet and discuss things on a match day.
  2. Alex Neil is probably the most realistic contender to come in should Pearson not stay on. Was given F all to work with at Preston and got them finishing top half, had far bigger issues than what could be seen on the surface this season but seemingly passed off as Neil’s fault. Neil is prepared to do the project style job, understands best players get sold etc, just given him the ability to actually spend money on players.
  3. We have 14 injuries to players in the first team squad, can’t be forgotten despite a change of manager. Pearson doesn’t have a bench full of senior players to call on to change the game and it means he has minimal options when selecting a starting XI. People on here reckon he’s making staffing changes in the summer, how can you properly judge him if he doesn’t have the staff he wants to work with, hasn’t had a chance to change the squad while working with an injury ravaged one and hasn’t had a pre season to work with the players to truly work on his style of football?
  4. Got to remember this is still a squad that has 14 injuries at the moment, not even counting Mawson after he was sent back. The bench is packed with u23’s players as a result. So Pearson firstly can’t call on 5 senior players he wants to bring off the bench as subs to change the game and he can’t rotate the starting XI too much because there’s a lack of senior players available. There’s only so much any manager at the moment could do with the squad of players available to him. The manager can’t also account for a player sticking his arm out to block the ball in the area in extra time.
  5. Lansbury’s played most games under Pearson, probably no reason to think he won’t be here next season. LB is pretty much Rowe, Towler or sessegnon with Hunt RB so senior player picked isn’t a shock. Famara I said back when the window was closed I was afraid he’d become undroppable due to the ‘well get the value from him on the pitch’ line, seems it came true
  6. And what if Pearson is experimenting with players and formations ahead of taking the job?
  7. Can someone chop Kasey Palmer’s arms off?
  8. I’ve always said you can’t give teams appeals as they’ll use them tactically when teams are on counter attacks to stop play, football being a low scoring sport makes that too important. You can’t say till next break or open play as it can go 5 minutes before that happens and you’re making players play 5 minutes they may not need to or if players get injured before the play is stopped to check. It would just need to be a tool for referees at their discretion.
  9. Perhaps not VAR but how would people feel about a monitor pitchside that a referee can use at their discretion to double check things like the Lansbury red and the Rotherham red? Wouldn’t need stockly park or any lines etc just footage to be able to watch the play back to have another look at key decisions?
  10. Someone has Nigel’s phone number
  11. He’s said he’ll never stake the financial security of the club against the chance of success, like Reading spending about 215% of their turnover on wages, the likes of Bournemouth and others who push FFP to the limit if not break it. Look at the owners who put their stadiums etc up for sale in an attempt to circumvent rules to get an advantage. He’s funded the development of Ashton Gate and the training ground rather than just sit on facilities as they are and not fund anything, he does back his managers/head coaches financially in transfers as well rather than looking to take money out of the
  12. I think I’d say the PL impose a season ban from Europe on all clubs, not that this effects Arsenal.... and a 12 month transfer embargo. However all PL clubs have to sign an exclusivity agreement (at least 50 years) that they’ll only participate in UEFA/FIFA/FA etc authorised competitions.
  13. Reformatted Champions League here we come.....
  14. Ed Smith gone, no longer a chief selector and squads will be picked by head coach supported by head scout James Taylor and another guy as head of performance or something
