Thread: Neil Harris...an appreciation thread

    Re: Neil Harris...an appreciation thread

    Wonder if any Leicester MBís had an appreciation thread for Nigel Pearson, after they won the Premier league? 😀

    Maybe Harris should become a permanent scout for the City. He can certainly recognise potential even if he can’t always manage it on the playing field.

    Definitely they all seriously think he was a big part in it. That season they were in the relegation zone under Pearson a lot seemed to think they were playing well enough to be no where near it.

    He did sign most of that squad too, if his son hadnít filmed himself shagging and abusing a Thai prostitute pearson would still be there although Iím sure they wouldnít have won the league then.

    He seemed to be a nice bloke, and in his way open with the media and fans. He was the filling in a Warnock-Covid sandwich though.

    But (along with David Livermore) he also appeared to be quite reactive and passive with the squad. No consistency. Did a good job bringing Tomlin into the fold, but not so good with others. Tactically conservative - tried a few things but if they didn't work he fell back on the tried and tested. Talked a good talk on coaching, but little evidence of it in club video clips, where he did a lot of watching from the sidelines.

    Compare that to Mick McCarthy who does the straight and honest more convincingly, and without the Warnock ego. Will Vaulks was saying in his post Preston interview that MM didn't do the big 'clipboard manager' speech when he came in but got the squad straight out onto the training pitch, where he and TC are clearly hands-on coaches (skills, tactics and player motivation).

    Neil Harris obviously has something to offer, and will probably get better as a manager with more experience, but he hit the buffers with us, and the change has been dramatic. It is one thing to talk about a clean sheet mentality, it is another to do the work with players to make that a reality!

    Nice summary, Jon.

    I dont think NH had the credit he deserved in getting that team to the play-offs last year, especially where we were when he come in, but cant argue with this year. Its a results business and results just didnt go his way this year. Fair play to Mick, I was expecting Warnock Ball but the change in shape has been a pleasant surprise. Yes we are still direct but I dont think its hoofball. Still too early to be offering him a long term deal - we havent played any of the top sides yet - but it wouldnt be such a backward step I thought it was going to be should he been given another 2 years.
