How to do it Pearson style .


Recommended Posts

I think Pearson is far more astute than many give him credit for. He did lots of the groundwork that helped Leicester in 15/16. 

He really reminds me of Cotterill in many ways. Slightly mad, but has a deep understanding of the game.

What I wonder with him - a bit like Cotterill - is whether that approach to management can work over the longer term of several seasons. I think if it unravels, those sorts of blood and thunder managers seem to have more exacerbated problems with player fall outs etc and public dissent.

I think for a failing club who look in free-fall - a back to basics approach with a clear game-plan can do wonders as we're seeing with Watford.

Badger 08, of course it is, we are the ones from cradle to grave who support and pay our money to Bristol City FC and time after time we are fed BS from the people in Ivory Towers who run our beloved club, for Gods sake, myself for example have been watching them for 62 + years and once or twice in my life  I have been rewarded for my commitment to them, not Arsenal, not Man Utd. I get sick of being bought drinks on holiday from well meaning people who when we talk football, I tell them who I support and they say Bristol City................nice little club !!! I want to see a club that achieves not bloody well just talks about it and a Head Coach that blames everything but himself . I want to see WINNERS.

I’d like to see us win something too, but remember that every year in the Championship 21 out of 24 clubs win nothing.  I do agree with you however, although I’m about five years short of your stint as a City fan, that it would be good to see some success while I’ve still got most of me faculties intact.

No idea. Nobody has an idea until a player says otherwise. Apart from that, it's compete guesswork. 

Just because the players aren't performing, doesn't mean LJ isn't giving a clear message. It could be anything. Maybe the players are having an internal rift? Just because they are all smiles for the camera, it means nothing.

What happens on that side of the football club, us mortals (not Frozen Robin) have absolutely no idea whats going on. It's complete guesswork, conspiracy theories and fantasy. Does anyone know what Pato put in that WhatsApp group? Could that have been a trigger for some internal problem that has started a slump? The dates match up I think. Could be anything, absolutely anything.

 

What group was that?

That's what frightens me DP, the thought of being in a chair in the nursing home at the age of 98 and the matron tells a visitor ' thats oldstandrobin over there dribbling and muttering Johnson Out, I haven't the heart to tell him they have at last got into the Premiership and that 10 years ago, the top ten teams in the Premiership joined the European League '   :ill::city:😂

It's 40 years now, with one valid effort at getting back to the top. One in 40 seasons! That's poor. 

It's not like we're Burton Albion or Rotherham at this level.

That said, SL has built a platform for us at this level now, from which a capable coach, given a bit of luck with injuries, should be able to get us into the play-offs, where we then have a shot at glory.

How many clubs has he been with?

That's his business :laugh:

A good manager that knows what he is doing, but I'm not keen on his personality much.

Nearly always stroppy with people unnecessarily so , a bit of a bully etc

That said, he has been successful so it clearly works.
