Looking close. Ignore the Barnsley beater on the left.

Am I right in saying only 3 teams have survived having been bottom at Xmas, and one of them was Pearson's Leicester? The fourth would have been Watford if they'd kept him.

He's got something about him, that's for sure

I wont judge him on derby, wasnt there long enough and they are a basket case

Overseas jobs are always hit and miss, different culture, language etc

He's done very, very well at most places hes been

Was West Brom another.....he was assistant to Bryan Robson???

Just noticed this - was Pearson possibly not well enough (CoVid in June)  to be considered in the Summer 

 

In August and September 2020, after his departure from Watford, Pearson endured a bout of rheumatoid arthritis that saw him suffer with swollen joints.He struggled to move during this period, slept heavily and had a shortness of breath.

My mate has R.A. and was very very serious with COVID....taken from BRI to London Hospital.  Was there 6-8 weeks before coming back to BRI.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall at Failand today, similar to the Amazon documentary which covered Mourinho's appointment at Spurs:

I imagine O'Dowda and a few others would be similar to Harry Winks here!

Who's going to be pulling this face I wonder?

Bristol City are in advanced talks to appoint Nigel Pearson as manager until the end of the season.

Talks will continue this afternoon, with Pearson expected to be in charge of before Tuesdays game at Middlesborough.

I will be very surpised if he takes control on Tuesday but maybe travel up with ashton to watch.

If it follows the usual pattern we should shortly move into the mostly unfunny puns taking over the thread as impatience increases.

Followed by ABBA song titles

Let's hope Pearson's agent's surname isn't Nketiah

I honestly believe most players should be excited about the prospect of working with such an experienced and well thought of manager

I can't imagine any will be "scared" or "shitting themselves" as I've read on here. They;ll all get a clean slate and a chance to prove themselves.

The players didnt become shit overnight, they're devoid of confidence. From what I've read, he'll reinstill that in them

Whilst he was at Watford he did a great job albeit he was ditched unfairly before they got relegated but the impact was almost immediate in the results Watford managed to achieve

maybe a bit to soon for Middlesbrough but I would expect a reaction and a more committed display against Swansea

Yes, the evidence is the absolute shambolic performances of the players. Worst coached set of individuals and as a team I can remember. Can't create chances, can't win corners, can't cross the ball, can't pass, can't take throw ins properly etc etc. Performances should improve under Pearson but it doesn't escape the fact that the coaching of this squad has been very poor.

The question is whether Pearson's no nonsense approach will be right for our players.

Will they be motivated or will they crumble under such discipline? After all, they haven't proved themselves to be tough nuts so far.

Nigel may have to bring some cotton wool.

If the players can't handle a bit of disipline, they are welcome to find another club.  

In which case, with so many players OOC come the summer, Nigel can recruit some players who will play

This is it. The door will be wide open in the summer for the lazy ones to **** off!

I think its squeaky bum time for some of our under performing players

It will make a pleasant change from it continually being squeaky bum time for the fans!

Meanwhile I'll be fishing off the end of the pier, son, looking for fish puns

Like all City fans this season then - down cast.

There you’ve caught one already. :)

Can't help but wondering if the delay in announcement might be trying to get the Netflix crew in for the next season of 'till I die.😀

There's some good material to work with at our club. MA meets NP for the 1st time. SL watching remotely as the players realize that there's going to be no more lackluster performances accepted

Quality TV that.
