    Leicester haven't sacked Nigel Pearson afterall!

    Another one bites the dust.

    Twitter suggestions that Sven is on his way back...but I assume that's just micky-taking.

    If Leicester's owners needed an excuse to sack Pearson, he certainly gave them one on Saturday -



    It's probably too late to save them from relegation unless they appoint a miracle worker.

    You see I have a issue with this.
    Unless they have sacked him for the incident above ( which I have not seen yet ).
    But the guy takes you up by a country mile and yes they have struggled..but ffs is there no loyalty what so ever...football has such a "ready fire" culture it's embarrassing.
    Old news but the almighty $ or pound has completely effed the game up.

    Leeds, Forest and Leicester all in disarray, whilst the Rams look in impressive both on and off the field.

    Have I entered an alternate reality?

    Things are never like this!!!!

    I agree, football wise, very harsh sacking.

    That said he was close to a total melt down yesterday, you could almost see the devil on his shoulder saying, hit him smash his face to a pulp, the angel just about persuaded him to stop.

    Never liked him or his club so fair or not, I don't care.

    The big question is....Will we have the sense NOT to sack McClaren when/if we are in the same position next February?

    Is this true, cannot find any evidence on beeb / sky sports etc. I would think this may be due to the incident above if true. Pearson doesn't exactly have a clear rap sheet for mischief on the touch line.

    All reports in Pearson sacking have been removed from Sky Sports website. Apparently he is still in charge.

    Suddenly lots of back tracking. Sky and BBC running the story earlier. Now Leicester refuting the story.

    Surely it would have been prudent for sky and the beeb to have confirmed the story with Leicester before running with it. Poor journalism I say. Always out for a sensationalist headline.

    To misquote Mark Twain, reports of Pearson's demise have been greatly exaggerated. However, judging by his post match comments there's definitely some madness lurking behind that man's eyes.

    If they get relegated I expect he'll be booted out.

    Shameful and embarrassing. I wouldn't want the gaffer of my club behaving in that way. So the Leicester fan was yelling abuse at Pearson? So what. As a manager of a club, you have to take everything. The fans are the only ones who have paid to get in there. They can boo their players and their manager if they want to. Could you imagine Steve telling a fan to "**** off and die"or grabbing a player by the throat, however 'lighthearted'ly?.
