Discussion:

Jewell or Pearce for City boss?

Less than 24 hours after keeping Wigan in the Premiership, Paul Jewell has resigned as manager.

The BBC also understands that Stuart Pearce has managed his last game for Manchester City, although the club has yet to confirm the departure of the England Under 21 coach after a disapppointing league season.

There's speculation that Paul Jewell could replace him at Manchester City, or do you think Jewell or Pearce could be the new Foxes manager?

Would you welcome one of them coming to Leicester?

Pearce is certainly passionate about the game and that has to be a plus. I reckon him with Nigel Clough as understudy - City and Mandaric could do far worse!!

As for Jewell, I'm not that sure. I think he'll have his sights on a bigger club, maybe Newcastle or Man. City, and I don't particularly like his numerous spats with match officials and the FA. He would probably put LCFC in disrepute with the footballing authorities.

I am not particularly sure I want either. Milan 'is the man' and I put my trust in him to make the right decision. <ok>

Quoted from this message


I'd take Pearce any day over the other potential names that have been bandied about - it could be a smart move for both parties. I'll wait until the new manager is announced until I renew my season ticket though...

Kat, Mine host, I thought for a minute you meant Tony "Waddo" Wadsworth as manager of the Foxes as even over here in Nottingham we know he is your "JEWEL in the Crown"

i would also have pearce he is passionate about football he is still learning and he knows that.
He has beleif and wants to prove himself.What he would also need is time managers too often are the fall guys for a teams performance too many are discarded as if this is the answer to all failings .

fans always hanker after great players but pearce has failed at a big club whereas jewell has succeeded at a smaller club than leicester. i'd love to see paul jewell here but i suspect he's already lined up for man city. i'd like to see george graham come here (only ever sacked by spurs, and then only cos he was arsenal) or possibly kevin keegan or terry venables?

btw i hope milan doesn't allow teacher's to blackmail him over the walker's stadium; he has by far the stronger hand. if they demand too much he should walk away and build a new 50,000 seater stadium on either a greenfield site or possibly pinch the old granby halls from tigers! teachers would be left with a white elephant as they shouldn't be able to sell the land off for more than a few million (assuming they get planning permission for housing which they shouldn't). and for those who say lcfc can't fill a 50,000 stadium i'd say that's what people said about a 32,500 stadium and we were full virtually every week in the premiership. show a little ambition city!!!

WHY should that be so - after all it is our national sport!! And probably gets a better debate that some of the drivel on here.

Would we really want Stuart Pearce as the Leicester City manager? His track record speaks for itself - relegation contenders, ill-disciplined squad, reliance on a teddy bear to bring good luck.... The man is a joke. Paul Jewell, on the other hand, would be a better option, although I believe he is suffering from stress at the moment (which puts him on a par with most Leicester City fans) which means that he is probably not the ideal choice right now. Personally, I put my faith in Milan the Leicester Fan to make the right decision, as he showed he is capable of with Rob Kelly's departure, to bring in the right man for LCFC. As has already been said, someone having been a good player is not necessarily a qualification for being a good manager.

I think its a case of wait and see. Speculation might be fun, but LCFC is Mandaric's plaything and he'll appoint who he darn well wants too. I just hope he's sensible enough to know that true Leicester fans couldn't stomach the gob from Sheffield, who's got about as much nounce as a gnat <smiley>
