I'm little bit surprised Nigel Pearson has been sacked. I believe he was looking forward to grabbing next season by the neck.

I was gutted when Leicester axed Nigel Pearson. "The owners have ostracised you," I said. His eyes narrowed. "Ostrich what?" he snapped.

Nigel Pearson will now be a threat hovering over teams struggling against relegation. "This continues and we get Nige in. Understood?"

Jesus. You can’t *sack* Nigel Pearson. He’ll remember. He’ll find you. You have to fire him directly into the sun, that’s the only way.
