regarding simpson and Downing, it could be NPs first choice has a contract they want to honour for a while  so better the devil he knows if they are ok.

chuffed to bits with the news, and relieved all my hopes of bits clicking into place came to fruitition. topped with hms PTL sinking,not a bad end to a shit season

Just a thought but maybe the players will respond better to them knowing that they have the new manager’s backing.

These are two football men who have bags of experience.

 

Someone posted previously that equally they could been reappointed as U23’s or academy coaches view their work with the England youngsters.

I can't see SL giving him a 3-year deal, what if the poor form continues into next season and we're bottom at the end of November, everyone on here will be asking him to sack NP and he'll have to pay him 3 years pay which would also mess up the club's FFP. I reckon he'll offer a rolling one-year contract, that would be a fair gamble and if NP is as good as he says he'll still be in the job in 3 years anyway.

Clubs usually have it written into contracts that they managers get a years severance pay or until they find a new job! For instance we stopped paying LJ the minute he signed for Sunderland! Other wise it could be very lucrative being a useless manager getting sacked all the time!

Very closely followed by FFS - especially this season!

One thing I havnt really seen mentioned about Pearson is the obvious pull he would have as a manager in this league. He’s easily one of the most high profile (if not best) Managers we’ve potentially had and players will be well aware of the success he’s had at this level. 

If it’s to believe that most business this window with be with OOC players, there will be more clubs battling for each player, and having Pearson on side will help us no end.

...is a very good point, but we need someone to negotiate their contracts. Not really Pearson's job.

Still nothing on the official site.

I am becoming disturbed...

If/when Nige is officially appointed there will almost certainly be a press conference, a fanfare of publicity with local press present ( I can’t imagine any national press being interested in Bristol City) 

It would probably get announced on TalkSport tho.

The deadline for renewing and keeping one's seat is Tuesday at 12pm.

Given the Social Media boycott and the bank holiday weekend surely they'll want to get this announced today so the club can benefit from a ST renewals bounce???

As people have said, it's a social media blackout not a Club blackout. The news can easily be released on https://www.bcfc.co.uk or through 'News' channels.

Wrong about national press. 'Up and coming sports city' and a high profile manager is something they'd be interested in.

Contract termination fees don’t have to be “pay up the remaining contract left”, can be all manner of things.  The LMA recently stated that there is no standard contract for a manager.  Terms could be zero pay off if sacked if in bottom three at Xmas for example.

I remember the LMA stating on talksport that the average payout for a sacked manager is 3-6 months.

I hope this is true. Yes results haven’t  been great but he’s definitely got the best out of the youngsters especially HNM, and we survived the drop which was probably his first task. Thankfully Lansdown has some patience now and I’m optimistic about the next couple of seasons. Just hope our fans give him time. 
 

Nigel Pearson’s Cider Army!

If you were going to be manager I doubt it would be announced anywhere mate.

 We should trust Pearson’s judgement on this, he knows a lot more about the game than anyone on here 

I disagree some OTIB posters have limitless  knowledge and experience and it is rumoured a collective was being hastily arranged by SL to form the new management team.

Obviously came to nothing this time but one to keep an eye on.

I suspect there's been some compromise on staffing, i.e Pearson can bring people in but he can't replace everybody, and a DoF, medical staff are more of a pressing issue than coaches.

Nige can't do it all himself. He needs some bods to put the cones out, so Simpson & Downing can do that.

I’ll not believe any of these is the most used phrase until it’s on the OS. :)

All the clubs are coming off of Social Media in protest against the racist and abusive posts of late.

It’s quite right that they should protest but why only four days? Surely for it to have a real impact then the protest should be much longer - minimum of a month for social media platforms to take note.

It looks like a token jesture to me.

I think it's meant to be a token gesture, for now. I think the long term still has to be addressed. The problem is that so many clubs and players have income streams from the different platforms.

If there is a press conference today I wonder who will front it other than Pearson himself - perhaps our outgoing CEO who is still working vigorously for the club or maybe the Chairman looking more relaxed than at Holden's unveiling when in his piece to camera he looked like a downed fighter pilot in Iraq reading a prepared note from his captors!!!
