Really hope confirmed soon; great decision.

We are now about 100x more attractive to players we are looking to recruit than we were last summer.

It's definitely a big job, and NP has talked already about it taking 5 transfer windows or thereabouts to build a team for promotion, but I trust him. I think he's an inspiring character. Will definitely sort the wheat from the chaff if nothing else.

Where do I buy my City scarf with Nigel's face on it? #COYR

Twitter.......:cool2:....millions of people use twitter (not me) so what credentials does Roy DeAllen have or is he just some random bloke from down the pub?

As you don't do Twitter, I'll explain.

Hundreds, if not thousand of unqualified chancers, spout endless amounts of bullshit claims, of insight and knowledge. Even the so called Journalists do it, just dressed up as rumours. Take all the claims, ignore 95% , or do as I do. Assume it's all fake and only believe the ones you want to be true.

Not necessary to explain.....I have a well established scepticism about Twitter and exactly why I don’t use it.

Its 95% bollocks imv,

Just looked on FB and Roy DeAllen is a bit of a weirdo - seems to think he’s an alien from outer space.........:disapointed2se:

Maybe he is 🤷🏻‍♂️
 

In fairness to Roy, he used to post stuff that was so far from being likely, you almost believed it could be. It used to be quite funny.  But he’s started to tweet stuff that’s much more likely, and it’s not any fun any more.

That's why I stopped following him.

So, basically are you confirming to @Roberred that he shouldn't believe anything until it's on the official site 😉 ?

Why are you asking his credentials? He could sleep with Steve Lansdown on a regular basis but by your own admittance, you wouldn’t believe a word he said until it was on the OS.

I’d avoid this thread until Tom changes it to “confirmed” in the title old bean.

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

Wasn't basso in a tweet about renewing season tickets a few days ago. Subversive information?

In the case of Roy DeAlien I would doubt check even if he got it from the OS 🧐

So it’s just like OTIB, but on a bigger scale?  :whistle:

There was also one with Christian Roberts and one with Joe Bryan, so think not!!

Christian Roberts was posting on here a few days ago about a signed playoff shirt (supposedly). 

Joe Bryan could be coming back - perhaps he's a central figure in Pearsons plans :bonkers:

Presumably Basso was referenced as they’re flogging season tickets using the old “Always Believe” phrase.

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.

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.

That rolling one year works both ways though, doesn’t it.

If he revitalises our well publicised mess next season, we’d then be worried about him getting poached.

I would be happy for Pearson to make root and branch changes here. As for the two coaches, I think @Johnny Musicworks has it right, their best times have been with the young England age groups and it would make great sense to use them in our youth set up. 

We need some continuity, a new CEO, a new medical team and a new manager presumably with an assistant coach are enough changes for now.

That must surely be the most used phrase on here since the forum was launched - and it still isn’t funny! 😳😆🍷

Closely followed by "I won't be renewing my season ticket...."
