Bet James McArthur is wearing a snood and neck brace for tomorrow's game. 

 

Nigel will be in the stands watching.

Good luck to np and to Watford.  Moves strength is assembling a squad of players prepared to improve.... and toss out the big time Charlies.

I wonder though if their squad is too poor to survive.... I guess we're going to find out.

We're focusing on bigger things now... and while nigel isn't for us I look forward to seeing his white trainers pitch side

Yes - think he just didn't get on with Sannino .

 

Scored at Rotherham and laid into the manager when celebrating!

Hope he makes a success if he gets the job. But it must be said his record after leaving LCFC is pretty crap. Historically Martin O'Neil, Jimmy Bloomfield, Matt Gillies and Ranieri were more successful and hopefully Brendon will take us on to the next level.

Pearson have just to gaze at Watford players like in this photo and the job is done, 6 win in a row and they are 26 points above the struggling Arsenal.

@Super_horns I think this is a very good appointment for Watford, and makes way more sense than many of the appointments the club has made in the past. Your current situation is dire, but Pearson I think gives you some kind of shot of staying up, and yet if it's already too late also makes you competitive in the Championship. I also think he will sort out the culture at the club, as I think too many players go hiding and let Gracia down who was probably the best manager you had for a while and who should have been better supported over the summer, especially defensively.

 

The only issue is that this will take time and it may already be too late. But I think he's a much better appointment than an unknown European coach or say someone like Hughton. Allardyce may have been better for staying up this season but I think wouldn't be right longer term. It could of course all go wrong, but I think he will do better than Flores just did.

Good luck to Nigel,

as much as he divided opinion I personally loved him,

The irony of that game at Watford where they beat us,

7 years later Pearsons took over them in 20th place and were 2nd in the league and also won the league in that time

He is such a legend that that random acronym that is no doubt only understood by us on here, was understood well enough for me to get an ft ban for "abusive behaviour"

 

See you in a fortnight @weller54

No - we're just hoping he does better, now, again, for Watford's sake, at least...

Im gonna have to disagree with pippa andadvise you that the answer to your question is a resounding yes.

 

Plus he's still Leicester on tour. Kept derby down longer, kept the belgian tram as no more than a hobby for top, and now ready to take out liverpool and watford for us.

Surprised Watford are bottom and still think they'll be okay come the end of the season. Good job for Pearson and good fit for Watford as he will help them to function as a team.

Nothing to do with us what happened elsewhere.

We're only interested in the job he done here,  and we're still reaping the benefits.

I loved NP when he was with us, but this adoration of him is very strange indeed.

Wholeheartedly agree. What great success did he enjoy in the Premier League? He also has some odd personality traits. The teams around Watford must be delighted at Pearson’s appointment. He is ought of his depth.
