Nigel Pearson - Confirmed ‘Manager’ Till End of Season

I would have thought, given he's more than likely off in a few weeks, we will see less of Fam up front and more of Nahki in his proper position.

That left side still has a gaping gap that we can't currently fill though, hence my question as to when some of them damn lefties might be back.

Yes this is what I think. Would not imagine Pearson tolerating Fam not signing a contract then playing him every minute.

Left-back is an awful situation. Not heard much about Pring or Nurse recently, so assume they are still way off.

Think Sess can do a job at LB for sure . Just need him to get fully fit .

Agree that Fam should be nowhere near the team until he signs a deal. Was so obvious he was playing for a move away in January.

Maybe Harper could get a look-in after all..

Incidentally my above post has now got me wondering. Do we reckon Lee Johnson ever picked a fight with a pack of Wolves as one of his exercises in understanding how people make decisions in high pressure situations?

Yep - part of his SAS and Jedi knight training, was supposed to be filmed by his Drones but the video failed ... apparently took out a pack of Wolves and a Bear.

Steve Lansdown deserves this appointment to work out, as i am  certain it will.  He has at last made a positive and timely decision which seems to have very good reaction from all the loyal, and "desperate for success" supporters......It is also decisive and quick...............Well done Steve!  COYR.  

Did Pearson apply for the job or was he approached by Lansdown?

Yeah. I think wells could do really well under Pearson. 

Most of them could probably do better than we've been seeing recently. If they can't (or won't) I'm sure NP will know in a few weeks. With contracts running out over the summer, the squad could potentially look very different next season.

Lansdown clearly had enough of the procrastination and after seeing the latest shambles against Reading, poured himself a large Brandy, told Maggie to fetch his filofax, and took it by the scruff of the neck making some calls and deciding if you need a job done, do it yourself.

I for one have found it brilliant watching him firing up his engines in the last week and righting some of the wrongs. Not sure it has finished yet either. I think there will be a day of reckoning for Mark Ashton over the Holden fiasco, but SL will delay that and hope it looks after itself (Ipswich etc).

You know you have a good manager when you read the twitter replies and have fans from so many other clubs even in the same leauge wishing him well

Massive well done Steve L

No more what if’s with this appointment, this is s genuinely ambitious move by our club and after so many disappointments with underwhelming management appointments over the years.  

This time, ambitious talk has actually been backed up by ambitious action and really hope this will be the start of this club genuinely moving on to better things.

Buzzing with this one and certainly didn’t see it coming a few days ago.

Put me down for 2 season tickets Mr Lansdown

Yep, Bristol City will always have my support but been really struggling to keep up the enthusiasm these last 2 or 3 years.

Was very dubious about getting a ST, but that's all changed tonight.

All credit to SL for a superb appointment. :city:

belting name for a drinker near Ashton Gate

There's already one on the way from centre of the same name near Bathurst Basin.

Co-incidence? I think not. The signs were there - it was meant to be!

Yeah - I was thinking just now that Nagy and Massengo might both do well under Pearson. I think COD and Paterson will either sink or swim. It might be this is what they need to push them to perform consistently but I certainly don’t think Pearson will appreciate players who only turn it on sporadically.

That’s our entire squad atm.

The squad without the injured players is very thin indeed with some players out of position.NP usually plays 4.2.3.1 when under the cosh.Could suit us. I realise that our coaches are less than popular but they are seasoned professionals and capable of drilling the squad to NPs liking. It’s now up to the Manager to get them focused and confident. It’s a bumpy ride.

We finally have our Pat Lam. Fingers crossed SL is finally learning. This is a step in the right direction but there is still lots of things behind the scenes that will need to change for this to succeed. Let's hope the penny has finally dropped.

Welcome " Nige "

The press reports suggest Pearson expressed an interest but who knows 

It would be good if it was Lansdown. "Hay Nige how you doing fella? were in the deep stuff here any chance you can come and help out?".

Witch giving that he keeps us up and has us playing some football puts him in such a strong position.

Imagine after that Lansdown will have to offer him a contract with Pearson bringing in the team he wants.

If he leaves after that and we thank him for his service, well the shit and fan hitting will hit an all time level.

Hahaha. You did that and you defend LJ! Brilliant!

It was a short sighted appointment. Okay he might get us up (and did) but then what? To be fair Lansdown timed his dimissal perfectly.

LJ is a far better manager.
