Right, first of all there is no doubt that with his trusted sidekicks Shaky and Walsh, he done alot for our football club, and we owe him and them alot.
I still believe that fantastic as it turned out, in the great escape season, we should never have been in that position in the first place.
Pearsons insistance on staying in games rather than going into games with the attacking intent of the previous season, in my opinion, was what led us to be bottom of the league for three quarters of the season.
It was only when it got to shit or bust time and we had to win games to stay up, that he let the players off the leash, helped by a change of system too.
It was interesting that he chose the 5-3 game against Man Utd that he wanted showing on Goals on Sunday today, because it was while i was walking to that game, that they had a pre match interview with Shaky on Radio Leicester, where he said that the players had gone to see the management in the lead up to the game, and asked if they could really give it a go against United, against the managements initial intentions.
As for his appointment at Derby, their fans were excited when he took over, and had high hopes, but basically he was hopeless there, and i believe alot of that was because he didn`t have Shaky and Walsh along side him.
In Belgium he has been found wanting again, and i have seen from their fans on here how frustrated they were with him, and he quite rightly was sacked from their club.
In regards to signings, Pearson had Steve Walsh along side him to deal with that side,and Pearson trusted his judgement completely, he wasn`t the one scouting those players, thats what he had Walsh for .
You talk about the players that were brought in that have gone onto great things, but Harry Kane was played on the wing at times, Jesse Lingard hardly got onto the pitch to prove himself, and even Vardy was mainly used out wide by Pearson.
Of course we have all seen the picture of the Play off defeat at Watford haven`t we, with Vardy, Kane and Drinkwater sat on the bench, seems crazy doesn`t it..
I honestly believe that if Pearson gets another job in the championship or league one, and he is able to get Shaky and possibly Walsh back with him, then he can still have a sucessfull career in management, without them, if i was the owner of a club, i wouldnt go near him.
