Monday’s visit of Leicester City promises to be another tough game, as Nigel Pearson’s side seem have continued their good form after last season’s promotion.
Nigel Pearson – while a coach at Newcastle
Shola Ameobi talked about Leicester City and their 46 year-old manager Nigel Pearson, who was on Tyneside for over a year, but left a few weeks after Kevin Keegan arrived:
“Nigel Pearson has done a wonderful job down there and it’s going to be a tough match for us,”
“We know that obviously at home, we have to do the business all the time and keep the pressure on the other teams to stay with us. But it’s going to be a tough game like it was on Saturday.
“But I feel if we match the physical element of it like we did on Saturday then I’m hoping the class will show.”
And of course Nigel knows exactly what Chris Hughton is going through, as Nigel was caretaker boss after Allardyce was sacked, and was in charge of that terrible game, when it was 0-0 at half time at Old Trafford, and we ended up on the wrong end of a 6-0 hiding.
Oh the memories – the terrible memories of the last few seasons.
