There was even reports he had actually been appointed.. fingers crossed we get a deal for Pearson over the line.

Would be really pleased with Pearson. Right man at the right time. But will always think Hughton was the right man at a better time. Huge missed opportunity.

We’ve never been here before.  Every media outlet is reporting it’s done. Can’t remember that happening before and the appointment not being made. Fingers crossed it’s announced today so we can all breath! 

Want it announced ASAP, would be gut wrenching if it now didn't happen. I suspect only chance of that not happening is if Ashton objects in some way.

Might it not be the other way around - maybe the club don’t want to be tied to an expensive manager in the event of relegation? With continuing Covid uncertainty, I could understand that from a financial perspective. Pearson could just resign at the end of the season if he didn’t fancy L1.

It is rumoured NP fell out with the owner at Derby. He has the CV but also a few ??? over the way he's left derby and watford. Bit more risky than usual for us. I'd be happy to see him in asap and a short term deal would help both sides to decide if it is a good fit longer term.

I've mentioned this before, but when LJ was appointed, Pearson was mentioned also - he'd just been binned by Leicester - I recall him being interviewed on R5 and the interviewer saying that City fans would "literally come and give him a lift" to AG

I much prefer Pearson to Hughton.

I’m hoping there is a change. 
 

In that podcast that @Davefevslinked earlier, Pearson himself said, and I quote word for word “I’m a manager who coaches, not a coach who manages”. 

I don’t think he’d be keen on being announced as a ‘Head Coach’. Much like when Cotterill arrived. We went from ‘Head Coach’ Driscoll, back to ‘Manager’ Cotterill. 

He was Head Coach at Watford IIRC ?

With SL reading the forum and this thread in particular, the only way it’ll not happen now will be from Big Nigel’s side.

Remember that. Fairly sure he was complimentary to City & Bristol itself. Think there’s a lot more to him than people give him credit for. COYR

What makes you think that it wasn't Ashton that negotiated it?

My only concern with this is it sounds like he needs to be surrounded by an elite coaching team that will take day-to-day training. If he is a manager that coaches, then he'll be more reliant on his coaching team.

On this basis I really hope he brings his own men in, because as of now I don't have a lot of faith in Simpson and Downing.

Does Nigel Pearson want the Bristol City job?

Former Leicester boss Nigel Pearson coy on speculation linking him with the newly vacant managerial position at Ashton Gate.

"I'm not ruling anything out but it's got to be the right fit," said the 52-year old.

"I've been out a bit longer than I thought I would be, but having said that if I don't work again this season and end up getting the right job it'll be worth it."

This clip is from 5 Live Sport on Friday 15 January 2016.

Johnson played Johnson

Cotterill  played Cotterill

Lansdown plays Lansdown

Of course Pearson will play Pearson- it's just all about nepotism at this club.

Did Jordan play Jordan?

And did Dicks play dicks?

I get the impression there wouldn't be many ins and outs at this stage for a guy who may only be here for a few months, he may be allowed to bring someone in with him as extra but would be a case of assessing the staff at the club and then if he stays on changes being made in the summer. Why rip up the staff structure at the club if the guy could be gone in a few months and someone else coming in who may then want their own people again.

I have less than zero confidence in these two.

Fair enough. 
Yep, was just going off what he himself said in that podcast over the weekend. “A manager that coaches not a coach that manages”. I thought it was a very interesting comment.

Simpson's team selection v Barnsley confirmed he is as much out of touch as Holden was.

Perhaps they are waiting for RB 'Sound of the city'  It will be interesting if Geoff has anyone on from the club tonight.  If they announce it lunchtime, Geoff could have the man himself on at 6pm

Or another club come in and offer him better terms than Landsdown can.
