  1. Well it just landed near or around AG. After circling 5-6 times.
  2. Helicopter has been circling AG for the last half hour. No idea what for.
  3. Was more tongue in cheek optimism than anything.
  4. Pearson said himself on joining he despises dealing with player negotiations and agents. I personally reckon we'll be in for Walsh and bringing back some NP older staff. Mike Stowell anyone? "After a win and two defeats, Nigel Pearson was re-appointed as Leicester manager and Stowell was made goalkeeping and first-team coach. He was at the King Power Stadium when the "Foxes" won the Premier League title in the 2015–16 season.[22]"
  5. For me LJ also takes his share of blame in this regard, all soundbites confirm he had final say, and I'd actually go onto say that between LJ and Holden, MA's recruitment would've been scatter gun due to the formers clubs in bag approach, and the latters inexperience. Saying that, he put himself in a turd position by appointing Holden in the first place. Added to that, our recruitment on the whole for the past two years has been desperately poor. Only decent business in that time has been Massengo and Nagy. Add in the NDAs at Watford, the shit show with Boothroyd, to City, k
  6. To a degree track record means something, to an extent. By that same metric however the likes of Wagner, Cooper, Farke, Wilder, Paunovic et al shouldn't have got the job at their respective clubs. My problem is that I feel that Pearson is making noise about replacing near all of dear old MA's work and the board won't hear a word of it. Recall that Pearson got the gig because he was willing to work with the backroom as current - that can change. Despite how much I disagree with that supposed view. In my opinion the entire Coaching staff, especially the fitness team, need sackin
  7. Bentley - 6 - Not much to do, but didn't inspire confidence when claiming on crosses, some odd decisions to punch. Simpson - 7 - Solid, everything Hunt hasn't been this season, good anticipation. Vyner - 6 - Solid for the most part, but a fair few horrendous clearances where it just needed a foot putting through it. Kalas - 7 - Solid and commanding performance. Rowe - 6 - Couple of lazy passes, good support on his side from HNM in dealing with Knockaert and Christie. Lansbury - 7 - Quietly confident performance, not enough for an extension perhaps, but some nice c
  8. Geez. Almost as if younger players need a couple of seasons to develop! They will be introduced but likely as squad players, I.e Vyner, Semenyo this season. HNM arguably one of our best players this season, and already looking a bit more consistent. Semenyo same applies, needs to add an element of composure in and around the box, but also has most assists this season All the kind of things that come from experience. Loans can only take you so far, the likes of Bryan, Reid, improved by leaps and bounds once playing regularly games. "Haven't staked a place", I'd
  9. Its not as if we've changed said coaching staff is it? If he had been able to appoint his own team, I'm sure we'd have seen more of an uptick. Issue is, the nearer we get to end of the season the less players such as Hunt, Diedhiou, Walsh, are going to want to play to any hard extent and get injured. Honestly think we'd be better off playing the U23s AG this stage.
  10. On paper, for me, Forest have the better squad. No guarantees Chris could've sorted us out any better than Nige.
  11. Pearson loves utilising a target man to switch it up, just don't see it happening. Id flog Nakhi off ASAP to get him off the wage bill, take a risk get Yates off Blackpool using Moore as make weight if we want a like for like on a quarter of the wages.
  12. In regards to the former, I think in lieu of the type of injury, I can't see us taking the chance, Andi was on circa £25kpw at Derby or thereabouts iirc. Don't think he's on much less here. I also forgot to add Baker and Paterson. Love the former but too injury prone, and Pato is the type of player who on his day is fantastic, but those have been near nonexistent for 18 months. RE Lansbury, we can't see what goes on behind the scenes. Who knows.
  13. Issue is, coaching was completely LJ and the warning signs were already plenty apparent last season. With this year's contract situations and Holden appointment, MA has completely ****** up. However it should be noted that my understanding is the the HC had final say on transfers who were scouted by MA's 'team'. SL, JL, MA, LJ are the most culpable parties for this shits how at the moment, their joint responsibility for decisions made, appointments, and overall squad balance that we've been left with respectively.
  14. Wouldn't take much of a shove to push us off the cliff at the moment. Keeping the fans onside and appointing NP seems to be the only ways to keep us fans onside with the Club at the minute, from my perspective. Issue is, SL and MA let things stagnate with LJ for too long. Anyone could see going into this season with the contract scenario being what it is that this year or next year were going to be financial black holes - and that was before Covid. Add in now needing to correct all of Ashton's dogshite appointments and signings of the past 30 months? Nige can't exactly do much
