Brilliant news! Get Craig Shakespeare and Steve Walsh to work with him. And hire Adriano Basso to become full time goalkeeper coach 

Doubt we could get him from Aston Villa but is it possible he would want to work with Pearson again, relish the challenge? Still I doubt we could get him.

Poor old @Robboredwill have to wait a bit longer to find out.

 

Not to worry  as Ben Fisher is an anagram of The OS if you squint a bit!

Agree . Am I right they were only on a year deal . 

Without checking, I'm pretty sure they were on a longer contract than Holden was....

Hopefully, on the condition that they undertake a thorough, intensive refresher course.

Based on what we've seen so far, they have either forgotten everything they learnt or how to implement theories into practice.

If you believe Ben Fisher has the inside line (and I tend to), then afraid not:

John Percy seems very reliable, if it happens absolutely the right move at the right time.

Just what the club need.

Also skimread thread, Ben Fisher reporting it sounds like it adds credence too.

Percy covers the East Midlands too, basically anything to do with Derby or Leicester, he’s the man.

Not difficult to work out how he knows this.

It could be announced before saturday?? So a journalist has said its all agreed, but it could be announced within the next 3 days? At the risk of being told im no fun at partys, this doesnt exactly sound like a display of forthright and accurate journalism to me, more like a stab in the dark to suggest something that might have been happening anyway. 

i will go for another one,,, diedhou might not be playing for us next season....

If true, good news. 

Of the two assistants in the other hand, Downing at least has experience with WBA - however I believe he may have had a role in Brunt coming in. 

Id honestly rather on that basis neither staying. As long as we get a Solid DOF vs CEO I'll be content dependant on results next season.
