Depends if you mean it or not....or whether it’s just words!

A certain person (@lrrr) had compiled a nice scouting report of Manning last year.  A very good read. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Don't know the fella but a link would be very welcome.

Theoretically elevated status or real. One sincerely hopes the latter.

I'd say he's on par with Coppell, everyone knew him from his terrific time at Reading in the Prem. 

I think you do a disservice to Nigel Pearson.

Welcome to Ashton Gate Nigel. I hope you stay for years with corresponding success.

Well done to Steve Lansdown. There is no doubt he made this decision with little to no persuasive necessity from messr Ashton.

Sorry mis-spell... Messer.

No talk from the man until Weds then , understandable


 ‘Pearson will formally take over on Wednesday before conducting media interviews later that day ‘


Lets hope it’s not , 

I said to Mr Lansdown after watching the game last night, sorry ,  I can do major problems , but even I can’t do miracles ‘

I’m overjoyed with this appointment. After the increasingly dour football of the last couple of years, the fiasco of the Holden appointment and our shocking form of late this is just what we needed. Someone with experience and a good CV, who can give the club a boost. 

Welcome, Nigel!

City Chief Executive Mark Ashton added: “Nigel is a highly respected and experienced manager with a proven track record of success and we are looking forward to welcoming him to the club.”

....before adding "Okay Nigel, can you let me out of this headlock now please"

“...experienced with a proven track record ... “ - many have been howling for a gaffer with those credentials for years - why didn’t it occur to MA to go for one of those guys before?! Unbelievable...

Do you think if this shit show of a season didn't happen they would have even considered approaching someone like Pearson?? 

I very much doubt it.Most of us have been critical of SL at times,but credit where it is due.(Or perhaps overdue.)

This is a massive appointment at a pivotal time for the club. There’s no doubt IMO that he’s the best man for the job right now, and credit to SL for getting him in quickly (no doubt expedited by Kalas and Simpson’s interviews after the latest dismal performance). 

In many ways, this appointment will tell us the real state of BCFC and Ashton’s reign. Pearson’s walked away from previous jobs because of politics and even the introduction of drones at Derby, so he won’t take any shit. I think it’ll go one of two ways:

1. He keeps us up this year, is backed by SL in the summer and makes us genuine top-six contenders next season

2. He’ll resign pretty quickly after seeing the true state of the club and the level of Ashton’s interference. 

One thing’s for sure: it’s an appointment to unite the fans and I’m going to enjoy the ride. COYR!
