Pearson sacked by Leicester.
Perhaps to do with his sons antics?
Can't sack someone for bringing his kids up badly!
That was probably the final straw, after all the embarrassing crazy presser outbursts, but still a damn good manager who kept them in the premiership very comfortable in the end
'Differences in perspective' between him and the board, apparently.
.....but is he a good coach?
Your opinion of a dam good manager is considerably different to mine, you've stated Rodgers is a good manager and now Pearson.
I don't think Pearson is a dam good manager, he did ok to keep Leicester in the premiership but that was after they were poor for most of it and went on a run where they won 6 out of 9 or something, if he was a dam good manager they wouldn't have been at the bottom of the league for so long imo.
Fat Sam I think will get that job now.
Good shout that. Almost guarantees premiership survival.
I think Arry is finished in the top division personally. Couldn't get QPR going despite spending a fair whack there.
Miffed at the sacking. I was against sacking him earlier last season when most people were for it and now it's worse. I'm also annoyed they've sacked him after learning that many players (Schlupp, Schmeichel, Ulloa) who were potential targets for other clubs have decided to stay.
There aren't many decent managers out of a job and I do not see a better manager taking his place. His antics of the pitch might be decisive, but there's no doubt he had the backing of the players. It'll be difficult for a new manager to build up that sort of rapport.
@pandemic you can have Rodgers
Only if you hand him over with say £200m...
Pearson to Liverpool then? Lol
Lol if you have 200 million to spend I wouldn't want Rodgers to be the one spending it
We have plenty of players he bought for big money that I'm sure you can have on loan to sweeten the deal lol.
Bizarre decision but right time to do it if you are going to sack the manager.
The BBC are reporting that it was related to his sons actions and that it was that which tipped the relationship over the edge.
Can't understand even attempting to defend your son a situation like that.
Where does it say he was? Seems clear to me that the owners were probably more worried about their reputation in Thailand, than what was best for the club. Won't be surprised if Pearson takes legal action for being sacked for reasons outside of football.
I've just been told Stuart Pearce has been seen at the KP, f fs. He failed miserably at Forest.
There's talk of Neil Lennon getting the job, would you be happy with him?
If not who would you like.
With Lennon, the risk is how will he adapt to managing in the EPL. In my opinion it's probably the most difficult league to manage in compared to leagues throughout Europe.
I'd like a manager with experience of getting a team promoted to the EPL, followed by a decent stint in the league. So essentially someone who's earned a place to manage in the EPL as opposed to just being hired in, I think that is important for a club like ours. Unfortunately, they're all in jobs.
There is nobody who really stands out for me, Pearson's quite difficult to replace; bear in mind he's the only manager who's been successful at the club since Martin O'Neill.
Whoever the new manager is he'll have a difficult job on his hands, the only thing in his favour will be there is a decent enough team to stay up with, the question is can he make it work for him. Thinking about it our best bet might end up being Big Sam or Sean Dyche, he got relegated with Burnley, but did pretty much all that was possible with the resources provided.
Many of the bookies have stopped taking bets on the new manager now. Club apparently in talks with Claudio Ranieri. Guess I'll just have to wait for confirmation...
I know one thing. He'd be a safer bet than Schmeichel
Chelsea fans wondering who Claudio Ranieri is (new Leicester boss), he was your manager up until 2004, just before you became a Chelsea fan.
I've read his autobiography and he was treated badly in the season before Mourinho came. Ranieri put in place a number of top transfers but his face just didn't fit, he even finished runner up the year before he got sacked.
I agree some of Ranieri's signings were Mourinho's best players in his early years
