Strange goings on again here….

Why would anyone agree to a pre-scheduled appointment on the day of a game? Bizarre timing at the very least.

Hopefully the big man is OK. Get well soon Nige.

Without knowing what it is, how can we say? It could be something that needs 3 or 4 days convalescence and so he'd miss a game whenever he had it. It could be 'pre-arranged', but only by a week or two, and also potentially is something urgent.

Maybe this was just the best timing he could get, when no timing is perfect?

We really should try not to jump to conclusions when it's a health matter.

We don't know the details. Your health should always come first.

Nige has had a tough time on and off  the last 18 months.

Well that's a bugger re NP. Hope he recovers from whatever procedure he's had. 

It is odd timing, but with things the waythey are, take what you can when the appointment is offered. 

Be interested to see what happens at the game now, Curtis seems like a real firebrand, lets hope it means we win.

Seems like a nice bloke. The journalists must love it when he takes the press conferences as he's a lot more friendly and chatty than Pearson.

Last time he was managing was Millwall away I think? We were appalling and it was a terrible match so fingers crossed for none of the same!

he was poor tactically and with substitutions last time he was left in charge 😞

Can see us losing. Reading have a fully fit squad. Ince, Swift, Ejaria and Joao are decent and our defence is a shambles atm. 1-2

They're missing a few keys players actually:

Yakou Meite and Tom McIntyre are both back in training after knee and foot injuries respectively although neither are expected to feature against City.

Paunovic has said he hopes to have Meite back, though, for Saturday's game with Coventry City.

Felipe Araruna, Scott Dann and Alen Halilovic are also missing.

Nigel Pearson will be absent from this evening’s game against Reading.

The Manager has undergone a scheduled routine medical procedure and is planning to return to work ahead of Sunday’s game at Swansea City.

Assistant Manager Curtis Fleming will take charge of the team against Reading.

“I would like to thank everyone at the football club for their support,” said Pearson. “I wish Curtis, the staff and the players all the best for today’s game and look forward to returning to work as soon as possible.”

 

Suffering from a bad side.

 

(Not my joke, someone on Facebook's)

When was the last time you asked to change a medical appointment because you were going to a football match?

Defensive horrors seen in the last match and City's ability to complicate things make me feel pessimistic about tonight: hoping for a draw, expecting a loss.

Anyway...COYR!

Long odds for a Reading win, you could win some decent bunse.
