I just considered the exact same scenario in my head.

The cynical side of me sees a resignation due to health problems coming (can’t believe I’m posting this). 

Agree mentioned a couple of weeks ago could see him walking. This is a big job with a complete revamp of squad required, although this illness may not be related to his covid bouts.

I’m starting to wonder if he’s really cut out for this job right now, it’s obviously having an impact on his health and his wellbeing has to be prioritised before anything. Has to be a blow to the players when their manager has been absent a few times due to illness too. Get well soon Nige

Is Pearson trying to see from how big a distance he can manage a game? Last week the stands, tomorrow Bristol, then the Isle of Skye, then New York, maybe Timbuktu for Sheff Utd away, a quick trip to Auckland for Derby, then nip up to the International Space Station* in time for Hull.

Jokes aside, I wish him a speedy recovery of course.

 

*I am aware that in terms of miles distant in a straight line, the ISS is at times much closer to Bristol or Hull than Auckland.

Fleming didn't do too bad a job to be fair so hopefully gets them performing tomorrow.

Peterborough was the only game I think we have been the better side in since Cardiff. Credit to him for that one.

Millwall actually wasn't awful until the last 20-30 minutes. Palmer was the wrong sub. Couldn't even get the ball into positions to hurt them. Before that we had done that, but not created chances.

I disagreed with Fleming that a draw would have been fair. But it's a bit better than these recent games to say that we almost deserved a draw. We could not create chances and they could so they deserved the 3 points.

The way Nige talked it seemed like Fleming was told to do what he likes. I think Nige said he didn't even watch the game live at home.

I thought the exact same, would be extremely gutting.

Football aside, my well wishes are with him.

I will take a repeat of the last away game Fleming oversaw us, hope the players rally round for Nige and give a battling performance.

The ISS is closer than the Isle of Skye, New York and Timbuktu as well!

To be honest - it can be a bit closer to Bristol than Hull is!

He was very ill with the first bout of COVID and has had it again, couple that with the pressure of football management, let alone the added stress of the struggles we currently have. it is perhaps unsurprising that his health is still being affected. Not sure we have ever had the "real" Pearson sadly.

Get well soon Gaffer.

Maybe, just maybe, he’s starting to feel as though he was told a pack of lies when interviewed.

Wouldn’t be the first time would it…….

I don't see that. He's been clear himself  from the start about our limited transfer budget and we've just made staffing changes that he presumably wanted. If the "pack of lies" isn't around the transfer budget or the staff he could have, I can't see what it would be...

Those who are giving him a hammering for sitting in the stands might also need to reflect on whether it is because he has been trying to struggle through whatever illness he is dealing with, rather than not feeling the need to be in the technical area barking instructions

I am not one of those who cares where he sits or stands but he does like it up in the stands. Done so at previous clubs. Most games I think at Leicester when they went up. Might be wrong but he has at least done it at times in the past.

I'm another who's wondering if Covid hasn't meant Nige is struggling more that we realise. If a resignation is necessary due to health reasons, so be it.

The most important thing though is Nigel's health, get well soon gaffer!
