Good people skills for an ostrich handler.

 

"are you an orstrich"

 

McCarthy clearly said yes

Surprised he's taken the job on one hand, but on the other he knows the owners well and maybe a change of scenery might be more palatable than a three month stint in league one. Good luck to him. 

The owners are smart and I reckon they've only really seen what he's worth in hindsight. If Pearson were to come back here what are the chances that a bunch of our players would get rimmed by Thai prozzies and Whatsapp it to their mates? 50/50? I like those odds.

He obviously has people skills because the players loved him. I think he choose the siege mentality route with the journalists. But whatever, i'm glad he's back in the game but would be surprised to see him back here in any capacity. Although, i'd probably welcome it, i'm an NP fan.

Can't live with him.... can't live without him

 

I thought that np was unhappy with the thais being tough with his lad over the bangkok incident.  So does anyone know how they got over it?  Surely np didn't  admit he was wrong?  Que press man asking him for a view on how the thais dealt with it etc

 

Putting that aside ... np will build a great club for them.

 

His tactics were sometimes  a bit fixed.... but maybe he has learnt something.

 

I expect him to be back at lcfc as soon as shakey has four losses in a row

Wow! The most expensive scout in LCFC history?! 😂😂. An interesting turn of events. Good luck to the bloke.

The Mercury translation has that quote down as "man management skills". Which I'd wholeheartedly agree with, he's the best out there at man management and building a club from the ground up. Sadly I think he is more than a bit dodgy tactically, which is why I'm not sure I'd definitely have him back.

Plus I think Pearson hasn't got the best relationship with a couple of our players (Simo and Albrighton?) because he was on the verge of binning them before he got sacked. I imagine Kasper is over the moon at this news though, he is a massive fan of both our owners and Pearson.

I'd love to meet Nige again, first time I was too scared to say anything. Now I'd give him a big manly hug.

I think that if you combine Pearson and Shakey you've got the ideal manager. One is great at organisation and putting a back room team together and the other is great in front of the press and getting a team to play well together.

Dreaming of the day he makes his return to the LCFC dugout.

 

It will happen.

I believe your right I think it will happen. NP back at the KP and Shakey in Belgium. However I would like to see NP working alongside CS,

This certainly seems like a stepping stone towards bringing him back one day, as it's appears NP and the owners have clearly resolved any differences that they may have previously had. I wouldn't be too surprised to see NP back within the next 2 years, and given the amount of stick Walsh has been getting from the Everton fans recently don't believe it to be inconceivable that we could see the dream team reunited.

I wonder what they're paying him, and how they persuaded him to move to Belgium (unless he commutes). He's definitely getting more than any Belgian second division manager in history.

The way I see it, the appointment of Nigel would be a comple...hang on, where's that "Unpopular opinions you hold thread"?

Delighted he's got a job

 

His reputation has taken a battering for things which weren't necessarily his fault 

 

He's one of our best ever managers for me, I'm glad KP and him are on good terms. Would love to see him back here one day.

I'm made up for him - good old nige. Back as part of the team. Great news also for the manufacturers of giant white trainers. NFP gonna be back stalking the pitch side with a pair of hi-tec bad boys ready to throttle any opposing workmanlike midfielders. Also ready to step back to LCFC if and when we need him!

Only as the away manager I hope.

 

People wanting him back here when they're complaining about Shakespeare's tactics is absolutely astonishing.

Not saying he is perfect, but by the end of Pearson's reign, after his first ever season in the Premiership and learning from his mistakes, what parts of his tactics, specifically, do you take issue with?

Yes Nige! :D

 

I'm not convinced he will be manager for us again but it shows how highly the owners rate him that they've asked him to set that club up.

 

We might see him come back as DoF someday.

I love the bloke but I think we need to move on. We're aspiring for European football now and if we're going to push forwards I'm not convinced he is what need.

 

Is there anything to suggest this is more than a rumour anyway?

He's a people person but not a bloke shoving a microphone in his face asking a provocative question when the spotlight is on him person.
