perhaps if you got your bowls out and gave them a little polish,it might cheer you up a bit?

I’ll tell you what cheers me up - City winning games and a nice cold pint of Thatchers  Dry on a balmy summer evening with my mates after winning a bowls match.

If Pearson keeps us up, and I truly believe he would, even if he walks away in the summer for something better, there must NEVER be a rookie in charge at AG again.

Fair play to SL, for this. But please let us never slip back to a "Holden" appointment ever again.

If this happens and it’s true we also approached Eddie Howe, then the club deserve massive credit for swiftly approaching two excellent managers.

 

Learned lessons from last time clearly 

Not!  When Gary Johnson failed to win the playoff final. This type of approach and appointment was required.

Good to know. Thanks.

I think on Tuesday night he will ask Simpson and Downing to pick the side, then when he gets the paper with their line up written on it he will laugh condescendingly then tear it in half screw each half up and stuff it down their throats.

This actually made me laugh out loud

Can you imagine SL sat down, feet up reading through this thread, cigar from the box behind him in one hand, fine brandy from the decanter in the other, knowing that he hasn’t seen OTIB this United and behind his decision since...

Derek McInnes.

I sincerely hope that you will be enjoying all of those things again soon.

Not wishing to put a downer on the evening but it has just occurred to me that there is a Talksport/Sky Sports reporter called Nigel Pearson. 

We have gone for the right one, haven't we? This is Bristol City after all.

Well, if you’re really ‘The Moose’ then it will be incorrect - an absolute nightmare of a sports reporter, cannot even read a script without tripping over words and slurring, and has zero knowledge of anything regarding football, just makes himself constantly look like a clown who won a competition to be a sports reporter for a day - how he has remained employed with zero ability, knowledge or prowess is beyond me and many others

No Rod Hull and Emu either...

 

A Gashead (well Hull at any rate).  Despite being dead he attended the same number of games per season as most of their fans, ie. none.

Christ no, I'm not him! He's twice the man I am. (on the scales anyway).

Embarrassed to share the same nickname. Always sounds drunk and as for his laugh...

Literally made me laugh out loud. Wife gave me daggers as she has just got the little 'un to sleep in her arms :laugh:

Try learning the difference between speculation and reputable football journalists who check their sources.

You kept falling at this hurdle when you accused Gregor over the Williams story despite being told it had originated with highly respected David Ornstein.

Ben Fisher for instance, one of the ones quoted on this thread, covers the EFL for The Guardian and is also well respected. 

Experience over several decades of following City and seeing countless managers come and go has taught me to never trust  any sources of rumour and only believe it when it’s officially announced.

If Pearson gets the job then fine - I have no problem with that.
