Pep Guardiola's adventures in Manchester City

Post by Firenze on Mon Jun 05, 2017 11:19 pm


THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SAY IT’S A DISASTER
They can say what they want. Maybe they say that out of jealousy or because they don’t understand or because they have a bandage over their eyes. Do you know why it’s not a disaster? Because those of us that are lucky to be on the inside realise that the players are absolutely convinced of this metamorphosis of the game, however it ends. The players know that this is a different type of football, something new, and something that we enjoy. Of course we want to win, and if you don’t win you are disappointed. But how natural it is when you see it day to day, in the players, the staff, in training, it allows us to say that it’s going well.

sounds like a typical Pep slurper Laughing

there have not been any signs of a change in the way the team plays after an entire season, just that they look worse, no silver linings to the season just gone

this season was absolutely a disaster for a club like City that expect to compete for and win trophies

If it was absolutely a disaster, what description would you use had Man City not made the CL at all, if say Gabriel Jesus and Sane adjusted poorly to the PL and were flops, and if RM or PSG were actively targeting City's best players to poach? That scenario isn't wildly improbable and would be much, much worse for the club moving forward.

Seems to me like Man City's season was a disappointment but not a disaster, with plenty of room for optimism.

Read the interview above with Sam Lee, Pep's assistant right?

One thing that worries me is when asked about winning, he doesnt seems convinced or confident that they will it is Very Happy He just says hes happy they are playing high level Pep style football, where an era is starting and that everyone is happy at the club for this, etc... it doesnt feel that they will do anything to win. But I guess thats maybe the mentality right or wrong with Pep and Man C now...?

Certainly hope Im wrong and that hes just being humble or not overly ambitious in setting too high targets in an interview maybe...

Hey, don't you guys think that City played better in the beginning of the season with Pep? His tactics seemed to work pretty decent. I am not talking about the scores, just about the way City played. In the first half of the season the passing game helped the team create a lot of chances and the offensive tactical ideas looked like the ones he implemented at Barca. Of course I am not talking about the same level because the players he had at Barca were 100% suited to the style and the mentality adopted. Then something changed and even though the possession stats were high, the transition from the defenders to the attackers wasn't the same.

He won 3 of them with the best player of all time at his absolute peak and 2 other all time great midfielder in his team and the other 3 in the most 1 sided league campaigns ever seen after buying the 2 best players of their number 1 rivals. Big surprise. Laughing

Why has Barca been nowhere near as good since then? Him alluding to Madrid winning being questionable is obviously bollocks mind.

I'd say on Barca's treble winning season they were as good.

Even if that was the case, I'm willing to accept that it's one season out of God knows how many.

It's quite clear Barca have never really reached the same heights since.

I've been trotting out the "lost the battle but will win the war" trope for a long time now, hope it pays off for me. This is the season it does Proud

Good question, I would go with Spurs. For obvious reasons like I support them and want to see them do well, as well as reasons like it would be nice to see Tottenham win as a team that hasn't in a long while, City lose because they're a disgusting oil club, HURRIKANE deserves an EPL title, seeing good football triumph over Mou-ball etc

In the end I don't care about City, I just like to watch them play because they play good football and are managed by Pep who I do care about. I want to see them do well but if they don't it wouldn't kill me. City having another bad season would just be like Madrid retaining the CL this season. It sucks and a break from football will be needed but I can make it past.

Yeah admitted defeat on that one a long time ago.

Was hoping people would just forget. Maybe I should be wrong more often so these things become forgotten, like Mole or James do imo hmm

Already has spent quarter of billion this year Laughing

Similarly spent €200m last year despite finishing 3rd Laughing

If he doesn't win EPL/CL this year he will hurt his reputation even further than he already has.

Also what was that Financial Fair Play thing? Laughing
