Now, to any wasters who are posing as "footballers" wearing the Bristol City shirt, Nigel Pearson is here to stay. 

If you want that to continue for yourself, buck up your ******* ideas and start proving your worth. Otherwise don't let the door hit you in the ass.

In a funny way the time it has taken to appoint him makes things even better because the wasters simply do not have the time to turn it around. Pearson has literally made his decisions on players.

We just appointed a bloke with a worse (football) record in Bristol than Joey Barton, and were over the moon???   Only joking. Welcome Nigel, time to get your hands dirty and sort this mess out.  COYR. The future starts here.

You could say he is the most important part of the rebuilding process this summer. Going well so far 

Leaving three vital components left - recruitment, medical/conditioning and playing staff. I've never known a rebuild job like it at any club from my memory. We are literally giving NP a blank sheet of paper and saying build us a proper football club.

I suppose we are, but if we're going to do it, then this is a good start..

It's great that we've secured his services for the next 3 years but let's not get too carried away with ourselves as there is an enormous amount of work to do, from sorting out the backroom staff, through player fitness, to the squad for next season. Apart from the initial managerial change bounce (at least away) results and performances have not been what we'd hoped for. There are of course mitigating circumstances, not the least the horrendous injury list, but even after we've shipped out those he doesn't want some will have to buck their ideas up if they're are play a significant role next year. The real positive, aside from his experience, is that he has a clear vision for how he wants to take the club forward, something we've been lacking for some time. I'm not looking at promotion next season but I'm feeling positive for solid improvement and a position in the top 12.

I get think there will be a different feeling around the club now and with the players, would imagine certain players will not feature for the last few games and most of these will be glad to see the back of. We all need to get behind NP now and trust him and hope the Club (SL, JL etc) get behind his vision of how we improve to get where we want to be. if it involves slightly higher wages to get quality in then so be it (wages not bigger transfer fees, as felt the wages was always why we don't attract quality player) certainly give the club a brighter feeling than when we appointed both LJ or DH (as felt disappointed in both those appointments) I understand some of the fans will not be particularly happy at NP being appointed manager as the recent run has been poor to say the least, but will judge him next season not on trying to manage the shower of shit players we have now (the legacy of MA, LJ & DH)

Quite. He has built teams that have gone from this division to the next.

He, and his team, have unearthed some absolute gems in the transfer market (whether any of his team are to follow remains to be seen - I would expect at least 1 or 2).

He has the experience of this division and the next.

Yes his start has been crap, but you have to put that down to injuries and players who just don't care anymore - they won't remain here.

The infrastructure is here, and he has the best example of a blank canvas that I think you're ever going to get in football.

So long as he is backed, things will improve. You would have to think that things like transfer targets, budgets etc have been discussed, and both parties are happy with the outcome of those discussions - otherwise this announcement wouldn't be happening.

I'm not expecting miracles next season, but an improvement. Mid table when you consider the mess we're in, and the number we need to bring in, would be a successful season. He has already said he expects 5-6 transfer windows to be ready to to push for the Premiership - that's 3 seasons - the duration of his contract. 

This is not an overnight change, and if anyone thinks it will be, then they'll be disappointed.

I for one am delighted with this news.

Personally, I am delighted by the news. With Ashton out of the picture, the decision was in the hands of the Lansdown family. With so many players being out of contract Pearson has more freedom to make decisions with regard to the playing squad. He has, as close as you can get, a blank sheet of paper. We look to him to make his mark.

I don't see us going that mad in the transfer market. Keeping players fit is the priority. And I think defence is the main position that needs sorting in the transfer market.

This "right people on board" part of him comments has gotten me excited:

Pearson said: “I want to be part of a team that gets to the Premier League. It’s going to be a tough journey and we’ll need the right people on board to achieve it but I am excited about the possibilities ahead.”

 

 

Sounds great, look forward to Simpson and Downing being shown the door!

Why?  What have they done that's so wrong?

Let me see... Downing is the defensive coach and we have let in 9 more goals from set pieces than any other side in the Championship. Simpson just tarnished with the brush that had us playing the worst brand of football since Pulis days.

Really hope we bring in Steve Walsh to sort out our recruitment now. 

NP’s signings at Hull without Walsh aren’t the most inspiring

Some of those players at that time were brilliant and would far improve our squad massively in terms of quality. Maybe this was a whoosh post?

No. Let it hit you several times. Hard.
