We must keep our faith in Pearson
Following our indifferent start, fans' message boards have featured discussions on how long Nigel Pearson would remain Leicester City boss.
In this, the first of a regular new column, the Foxes Trust Board would like to explain why we feel a change of manager is the last thing the owners should be considering.
Firstly, we should examine the profiles of recently promoted clubs.
The record of the three promoted clubs last season show Sam Allardyce in charge from June 2011 so had an entire pre-season, Nigel Adkins has been in charge of Southampton since September 2010, while Brian McDermott has managed Reading since December 2009.

All three promoted clubs in the 2010-11 managed to retain their Premiership status.
Paul Lambert had been building his Norwich side since August 2009, while Brendan Rodgers had the benefit of most of the pre-season before taking Swansea up.
It's only Roy Hodgson who had just a few months in charge at West Brom and he was completing the job that Roberto Di Matteo had started.
Contrast this with City, where we have changed manager during October for the last two seasons and not seriously challenged for the play-offs in either season.
Secondly, consider the financial impact of a managerial change.
The vast majority of new managers want to bring in their own players and move out those that do not fit into their plans.
Swansea have identified this key point and, having lost a few managers to 'larger clubs', have always ensured their next manager maintains their playing style, as seen in Michael Laudrup's appointment.
Then there is the introduction of the Financial Fair Play Rules.
The published annual accounts to May 31, 2011, showed not only the significant level of investment our club's owners made within the accounts period, but also a further £25.6million since the financial year end up to February 20 this year.
Under these rules, this level of investment cannot continue without severe penalties from the league.
So let's all back the current managerial regime.
