He will shit himself every time Nigel looks at him is what. 

Called us 'Bristol' on the radio when supposedly in the running after Cotts left. So should get on with Ashton perfectly!

But if this does happen, I'm willing to forgive him 😀

He's exactly the type we need, imo. Someone to put the fear of God into them.

He obviously has a good track record. What will the entertainment be like on the pitch? Does he like playing young players?

I am thinking he is an old school manager, which I know is exactly what some fans want, but not really sure that's what Lansdown will be looking for.

Good thing is Lansdown has said we have a lot of leeway with FFP and that the new manager can reorganise the squad.

But if he is not particularly keen on the pathway, then surely he'd be the wrong man for our model.

He had very good players at Leicester. Vardy, Marhez, Drinkwater etc. Don't think they were a hoofball team, maybe direct counter attacking

That’s what I thought.....would hope that we’d be giving him at least this season and next

An appointment to the end of the season might work for both sides. If it works the manager gets a very strong negotiating position to get a longer contract but also the players he wants for next season. Whereas if he signs a longer deal now he has to follow the club line in the summer.

Based on Appletons comments earlier this week, Pearson until the end of the season and Appleton to take over from then?

Personally I would rather just have Pearson longer term but not sure he fits the structure...

Maybe the structure is about to get restructured?

balls to the model we need results asap.....

Yeah I am sure that's how everyone is thinking. But in the summer it certainly won't be balls to the model.

Just read that in his final spell in Belgium he had only achieved 22 out of 24 points for OH Leuven before being sacked

“Dad, can you tell me the story of when little Leicester won the Premier League?”

”Yes Son, well it all started when Nigel Pearson’s son shagged a Thai prostitute...”

Great appointment if true, I’m sure he was available when LJ got the job and I wanted him then, really hope it’s longer than end of season

Before even having to strike fear into t he players he would have a presence that would command respect.

I said back in the summer that he talks in a chill way as though he’s been on a mindfulness retreat, but you just know there’s a demon in there somewhere and you wouldn’t want to find out. Loads of experience for him to draw on too.

Let’s hope this happens.

I think he could fit the structure. Steve Walsh was in charge of player recruitment when he was at Leicester and he was fine with that. I don't think the structure will be massively different to what he's worked in before.
