Summary is Pearson is unwell and cannot put a time frame on when he comes back - Club would like him back but Nige not up to it at the moment.

Nothing we didn't know already

 

 

What we need therefore is for Gould to come up with some answers as to how we will manage during this uncertain time.

Having Curtis Fleming effectively manage by himself doesn't seem a good look given the way the team is flatlining.

Not sure what else he can say.  Our manager is ill, there is no return date but we still want him as manager.

Our season is pretty much on hold until (1) NP recovers or (2) NP decides he's not coming back. 

I respect the fact the club have tried to put us into the picture over what is happening at the club when there is very little to say.

Has someone told the EFL this?

I'm not sure what the point of this interview is because this is just embarrassing at the moment.

I imagine just to allay rumours over Pearson, that and may be just to keep someone from the club giving fans news. Everyone moans when they don't.

How disappointing. 

No news, no answers to how we might improve: just vague platitudes. 

He's CEO, can't really comment on the first team without stepping on toes.

No shits given by GT he’s asking the key questions.

He is very good, respected by the club and gets answers.

The only thing I would say is that there must be a short term plan in place given the uncertainty of the situation. The obvious thing is to give it to Fleming for a few weeks but he can't do the whole thing on his own which is not far off where he currently stands tbh.

It’s an odd interview I agree.  Especially if it was actually requested by City.  But we all moaned when Ashton never appeared other than when everything was rosy so at least he has fronted up. But not really sure what he could say other than what he did. GT focused a lot on on the pitch matters which RG would and did struggle to answer.  As others have said people moaned when Ashton appeared too involved and are now moaning that RG isn’t.

Guess the premise of the interview overall was that he just felt he had to update on NP’s position and got caught in the headlights somewhat on some other issues.  But at least he took it on.

Are you convinced that he would return to come back to mange the football club?

”I would very much hope so but we’re talking about a health issue here”

 

I’m not sat here with a tin foil hat, but something isn’t right is it?

no he's ill with what sounds like Long Covid, something isn't right, ie he isn't fit enough to do his job currently,

Those usually reliable sources are a lot less credible now then.

Richard sounded more Brent than me when discussing our playing style 

It’s not his job and I thought GT was slightly naughty in pushing those areas of questioning tbh.

See my last comment.  

There is a problem. What are the club going to do about it?

Long Covid symptoms can incapacitate people for many months. I know someone who has been off work since January with it. Had to close his carpentry business.

Very unconvinced by that. That’s my first time hearing Gould and length and being truthful I felt it was a poor interview - not just on the Pearson situation. 

Lots of filler on needing to ‘work hard’ and how we have ‘good players’. Had to really press him to get firm answers on Massengo etc. Excuses, which aren’t necessarily untrue, about competing with PP clubs. Didn’t seem to understand coaches roles either and a predictable safe answer about solutions to improving the atmosphere. 

I’m sure he’s a very nice guy, and I appreciate it’s a tricky situation, but I felt he really sounds like a Lansdown man. Decent, polite and won’t really rock the boat. That as a first impression hasn’t impressed me and I’m not really sure it’s what the club needs. 

Full credit to him for coming on though, and hopefully my first impression is wrong. Credit to Geoff for pressing him too. He asked the questions the fans wanted to hear.

Let's just hope you don't get long covid and at the same time people take to the forum to speculate about you. Of course something isn't right - what is so complicated about that?

Yeah, what I mean is it sounds like there is a very real chance he won’t return and those discussions have been had.

Please don’t think I’m taking his health situation lightly.

its not his job to improve how we are playing, he's a CEO not a coach or a manager, his job is to improve the commercial aspects of the club and over see that

 

It isn't my job to do the software development,  but if a critical member of my team falls ill and it jeopardises a project, it IS my job to find a work around.

The club seems to be simply crossing their fingers and hoping NP is back soon.

That's the key for me. Pearson's situation will take as long as it needs to take but we can't completely throw the towel in. Someone in a leadership position at the club needs to show a bit of leadership. If it's Curtis Fleming, fine, if it's Colin on a three month contract then so be it BUT something needs to be thought out.

Agreed. Just posted on the other thread - not much point in agreeing to do an interview with a chap like Geoff if you really have nothing to say.

Lots of wishful thinking. All too cosy and complacent. 

Not a great deal more impressed by Gould than I was by Ashton to be honest...and that really is saying something!
