I think there was many Leicester fans at the beginning of the season who didn't think Ranieri was a "good fit" for them.

so much for "fit"

i would prefer to call it "opinions"......because thats all they are.

Great.

There were a lot of Villa fans who didn't think Garde or Sherwood were good fits.

Thats my point, we all have opinions for what they are worth....but no one can be sure with any conviction of who will be a success.

For me i think one of two things will happen:-

Pearson - If we get taken over

Bruce - If we don't 

Not saying I m endorsing either, but thats what I think will happen.

If we get taken over, we go for the guy out of a job but if we don't get taken over, we pay a team compensation?

 

Hmmmmmm...

The manager we will be choosing will depend on the new owner's wealth, and who he employs to make the choice.

And if that decision is Nigel Pearson I'll worry we've got another bloody Lerner on our hands :P

If there is a new owner. The certainty with which people talk of that happening concerns me, because in the meantime Lerner basically has carte blanche to do nothing. Again.

I think we were at this same point last year at this time (allegedly) with everything tied up, and the (possible) new owner pulled out. So you may well be right, but I have a hunch something is happening this time.

Wishful thinking playing a large part, of course.

Meh - expecting tantrums, tears and ultimately failure.

People do have the capacity for change though- I would hope and expect Nigel Pearson to have used his year out of the game for a period of reflection and learnt from his mistakes. Purely on a personal basis mind, as I am more than happy to see the same football manger rock up at B6

that's fair enough Dave

Personally, I think the appointment will be overshadowed by the inevitable Media Circus, baying for another Ostrich quote and ready to knock him off the pedestal of praise for 'building' the Champions Leicester as soon as things don't go well.

I've never been impressed with Pearson's tactics, wherever he has managed - be it Hull, Southampton or Leicester (twice) and I wasn't impressed with the manner in which he behaved on the sidelines and in the press conferences during his second stint there (the throttling, shoving and telling his own fans to eff-off and die - classy). 

To me, in interviews and press conferences he comes across as wanting to be Jose Mourinho but he's more Mike Basset - the media love this and will goad him relentlessly.

I acknowledge he played his part in assembling the squad that have just won the league (at a canter) but cannot help but see that they've done much better without him at the helm - for instance Jamie Vardy, under Pearson scored 5 league goals in 2014/2015 season in 34 appearances....

Do I think he could do any better with our current squad - No. The influential players don't care for the club and to me, is beyond repair in the fans eyes. If we're to get rid of those troublemakers, why hire a 'ball-buster' like Pearson?

I personally would prefer someone to come in and establish a style of play, from top to bottom including the youth set-ups. This would take time but would benefit us more than a 1-3 season fix with Pearson.

Ultimately, I don't want the Manager's behaviour overshadowing what is going on on the pitch - yes, a year out may have mellowed him but we may be walking into a years pent-up frustration and angst.
