Nigel Pearson - the new gaffer

As expected Nigel Pearson has been named manager. With Chris Powell as his assistant, which is fantastic news.

Mostly met with great pleasure from fans, the odd ones moaning that he is a bully, but most fans agree some of our players need kicking into shape.

Wise move. We needed experience & someone to kick the egos into shape.

Great to see Chrissy Powekl back too.

Fantastic appointment, with added sweetner of Powell as well. Everything is set up for next season now. No excuses.

Renewed optimism for next season now, Pearson and Powell should make a good double act, Phillips staying on as striker coach and Zuberbuhler as goalkeeping coach.

Yes, finally the coaching set up looks top quality. The basis of the squad is already there, just needs tweaking with.

Pearson is proven at getting promotion, which is what we need. I just hope he is given time to build a team over the next years, sick of of chopping and changing manager.
