I see, but if we are to not give Pearson a deal & at least let him try and build his own squad with a transfer window, who would you like to see appointed? We are working with an extremely short time frame with many player out or contract

I honestly do not know who is available but at this point in time NP just has not produced the goods.  I was excited when we took him on but am now thinking he is no more motivated than any of our under achieving players. He is seeing us as a well paid 6 month fill in job I think.

Maybe SL will surprise us all and be brave enough not to give it to NP.... and will be proven right for once. 

Or maybe he will be brave enough to fly in the face of opinion and see beyond the results of an absolute shambles of players that Pearson has been lumbered with.

I still hope so.

Pearson is associated with us whether he likes it or not. Perhaps he'll want to stay to prove that he can get it right. Otherwise, he leaves here having failed here, failed at Derby and been sacked by Watford in between. 

In fairness, most managers fail at Derby and Watford has a revolving door

Not Nigel's team granted, but he’s been here long enough now to have had some positive affect on results.

Sadly that’s not the case and there has been absolutely no improvement from the Holden days. 

Agree....and even if not results, at the very least some sort of pattern, style, we still look like 11 players who've never met each other and don't know what they are supposed to be doing. 

I'm sure SL made a comment in the interview he did for one of the podcasts recently - something along the lines of having several irons in the fire a year ago, that he couldn't get over the line then, but thought maybe might come to something later. Almost implied that Holden was a stop gap to get us through this season. If that was the case then I do wonder wether some of those irons are in a slightly warmer fire right now.

Yep, a blot on his copy book.

To play devils advocate, if you were another club and you appointed Pearson in the summer, how much of a lass would you give him because ‘Bristol City are ******* state’?

I honestly don't know how we are perceived at other clubs. And those clubs might ignore our injury crisis, look at our results at the begining of the season and feel a new manager ought to be doing better.

And given that this blot on Pearson's copy book means it is now four jobs since he was last an unqualified success, I'd say Pearson needs to make this work as much as we'd need him to make it work.

So where would we be without his money? Don't see a queue waiting to give away 10 million every year to cover losses.

Or perhaps we could get a nice fake sheik instead and have a lovely ground and stunning squad like the gas

I’m thankful for having a owner like Steve.  However I’ve been disappointed too. He’s got the club in a good position as being well run. We’ve just haven’t done it on the pitch consistently we’ve been in a decline since the play off final.

Why are people blaming Pearson? These wasters have thrown every manager under the bus. 

Yep and why I can't watch any of these wasters any longer. Won't be watching our 3 remaining games and I will wait to see if I return next season depending on who is let go. I am disgusted with too many players in this squad. 

How many times this season and last has it been a low point? Too many for me. Enough

And I said 'cluster****', not 'shambles'.

I do wonder if NP is the right man for the job to be honest. We look worse under him than Holden. 

I feel football may have moved on from the days NP had success. 

He had relative success at Watford, and they would not be in the championship if they had kept him.

I know it’s not been good but I don’t think it’s down to Pearson. The sad truth is that our players are not committed enough. Professionals should have more pride.

 I think we need to keep Pearson and let him build a team.

Sure - and I'm not actually criticising Pearson. I'm just pointing out that, given his last few jobs haven't worked brilliantly, he could really do with succeeding somewhere and would likely rather stay and try to make it work than leave and this season be the only season on his record here.

Bunch of tarts the lot of them, we deserve nothing, we fight for nothing and should mind the gap because we could well fall into it duck them all....wasters.

We can all accept players not being good enough if the effort is there. There was a comment earlier about someone happy Bakinson was running a lot?! I mean seriously is that where we are with these players? Laughable

I’m unhappy with the points return from NP, but I’d let him clear out and bring in new blood. He has had enough success for me to give him a chance next season. Let’s face it, our current crop of gutless little brats have crapped on 3 managers, I’m willing to let Nige to his thing and build something with his coaching staff.

Trying not to be too angry at the moment & being knee jerk about NP

If we look back to both GJ & cotts starts , cotts wasn’t instant , GJ’s was bloody terrible . Won his first but didn’t win for 8 or 9 after. 
I actually saw some cohesion first half in midfield . But, as soon as they got amongst  us second half we collapsed

If it wasn’t for those fluke win results, we would be down.

Yes, but I think that If we have had half the injuries we had, we wouldn't have risked relegation. I'm very disappointed by the 2nd part of our season, but we must not forget that our situation has been far more troublesome compared to other teams one, and our weaknesses have been more exposed mainly for this reason.

On current results if we give NP the job then relegation is a banker next season. Get a new man in.

To be honest Tone. I think the rot is set so bad we will be relegated next season regardless of Pearson in or out. We’ve been on a decline last 3 years and have failed to address the issue. Which has been the structure the club runs under the control of Ashton off the field and Johnson on the field. This all leads back to Lansdown.

It's not his squad. He can't change a thing other than juggle with U23's and cope with a a crippling injury hit squad. People need to put a lid on it and get a reality check.

We badly need the season to end so we can start getting rid and rebuilding.

And who would blame him,he’s not a Barton who would take a contract knowing full well the players are not good enough but take the money.If Pearson stays he will be promised a hell of a lot of money to completely change the squad if not he won’t and we will get some another boss who has to work with these players and that means one thing I’m afraid

I am beginning to feel the same. I understand about injuries and OOC players but can he not at least get 11 people on the pitch who can perform the basics and are at least willing to put effort in. Beginning to think his man management is not such a feature we all thought.
