    Under Coops I don't think there will be any complacency creeping in and the mentality will be strong in the coming games. I just hope we get more luck against Hudders in the next round than the bloody last league game against them at the CG

    I don’t think it’s entitled to expect your team to show some desire and fight, particularly in a local derby.
    It wasn’t the defeat that was upsetting, FA Cup shocks happen it was the manner of it.

    I mean more in general tbf.
    There's no doubt the expectations of our fans are extremely high.
    Nothing wrong in ambition of course but i dont think many people ever look back and see just how far we've come.

    Some probably, I don’t use our forums tbh. But I looked back yesterday during the game and wondered what Pearsons players would have made of that display. Some of our players didn’t take it on the pitch let alone leave it there.

    It seems Rodgers hung the players out to dry post match as well. It's deffo going to make or break him now this

    I’ve never been a huge fan of his anyway. He’s allowed us to get to this point and I’ve no confidence that he can fix it tbh.

    I should stop reading them tbf.
    Yeh no doubt Persons teams wouldn't have been so gutless.
    I was very much a Pearson fan too.

    Pearson would've thrown those players to the wolves.

    I have a happy household after this. It was my youngest’s first taste of going to an FA Cup match too, great introduction to it for him. And always great to see Leicester get beat!

    that team wouldn't have taken the field for Pearson, because he wouldn't have broken half our first team with his training methods... But looking at Bristol City Pearson is not the same manager he was with us.

    He has a tough job at Bristol City tbh and the fans for the most part seem to be buying into the process
