The former Leicester City man would seem to be the obvious choice at the moment. Not only is he is an uncompromising character, but has experience in both Premier League and Championship football. If we put aside the bizarre “ostrich” comments and his past allegiances to West Brom he could be the right man at the right time, most importantly he knows what it takes to win the Championship as he did with his Leicester City side in 2013-14.

Nigel Pearson oversaw an incredible relegation escape last season at Leicester so he has shown he has the tools needed to scrap when the going gets tough, that is something that Villa have lacked in a very long time. In fact it was the first time a team with 20 points from 29 games has avoid relegation, a remarkable feat.

 

Pearson spent an impressive four years at Leicester City and was one of the reasons that the club now see themselves sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League. When he arrived at the end of the 2011 season the club were languishing in 12th place in the Championship, he managed to take seven points in his first three games which saw them catapult into the top six. The first time that had happened since his previous spell at the club, 18 months earlier. If there is one thing you would expect from Pearson it is he will make an impact.

Speaking back in January Pearson himself made it clear that he felt Villa “do not have what it takes” to avoid relegation, he has been vindicated since by their form

Pearson is currently out of contract but I’m sure he will be eager to get back to it come the Summer after having been sacked in June 2015.
