Rumour... Pearson, Shakespeare and Walsh to be announced before the end of next week. 

Thanking you.

What world their official roles be, I’m not clued up on Leicester 100% 

Who would depart from AG? Obviously Ashton gone today, helps the cause

And Craig Shakespeare if we can get him 😁

I can see Walsh joining but just cannot see it with Shakespeare. He is assistant manager at the premier league club which he actually supports. No matter how well him and Pearson get on, expecting him to quit his boyhood team for an equivalent post in the division below doesn't make sense, especially given Villa can surely outgun us financially.

I also think Shakespeare is unlikely for reasons others have stated, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Chris Powell and/or Mike Stowell (ex-City keeper) come down in some capacity.

Pearson seems so keen to take the job that he must have sounded out a few people and they've all said "yep, I'll come"..................

Exactly. Any coach wants to work with the best players too, and I can't see Shakey trading up coaching Jack Grealish on a day-to-day basis with Taylor Moore.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we are already speaking to Walsh and also if we’ve asked Villa if we can have a chat with Shakespeare

Danny Simpson signed for a further year followed by John Terry and Troy Deeney................whose head would explode first?

Correct, Walsh was sacked at Everton and this is the reason why.

Seems somewhat of a biased article based on opinion really, talks about what they consider the poor transfers and doesn't mention what they consider to be good ones bar 1 sentence, they're also talking about the goalscoring and assists of Schneiderlin as justification of criticism of his fee. There's also no consideration of the standing, reputation and potential of the players listed when they were signed.

Lets be honest, looking at that article hardly any of the players mentioned were good signings. Particularly for their fees.

A few I'd argue on but mostly yeah mostly I'd agree, however you get more kudos for the point you're making if you can do it in a balanced way in my opinion, talking about the strengths of players he signed who did well or average as well. Calvert-Lewin if he got sold would probably net them a good £50m profit if he were to leave.

To be or not to be, that is the question.

If it doesn't happen then it will have been much ado about nothing.

And they're off! Another OTIB Pun Marathon is under way with Bazooka Joe out to a fast start closely followed by the Major, Roger Red Hat and Slarti! 

This one could run all night folks, let's hope all swell that end swell.

Taxi!

I don’t know. Having played with Brown Fox he’s used to having to work with useless tits.

Personally I think it's far more relevant to us what Walsh did at Leicester than Everton, given size/type of club.

Exactly. It’s like saying you wouldn’t want Keoman as City manager as he was sacked from Everton.

Well so far this season it has been 'A Comedy Of Errors' , all we need now is to find a position for '(Gus) Julius Caesar' 🤣
