Are we going to pretend every coach should walk the league with Fernandinho, Sané, Sterling, Otamendi, Walker, Delph? Any Real Madrid, Barca or Bayern fans envy any of those names? He has a very good team but not an elite team.


True. I would only take De Bruyne at Barca form City's team. And Bernardo Silva (but that's mostly because our midfield is mediocre).

I made a mistake thinking redcafe is more a football forum than a United forum, expecting them to treat United fans and other teams fans the same. Wasn't the case. They had a thread naming Barca fans the worst and were spouting all kinds of insults and I reacted. Which got me banned.

I don't preach about Pep. Whatever lauditorious comments I make about him are well informed and backed with arguments.

^ "Best"? Most competitive sure, but definitely not the best. They have been irrelevant in Europe since 2012.

Bragging about winning a second-rate trophy? Sir Alex must be proud.

And FYI, Sevilla won three of those...in a row.

The real test is whether City can do a Juventus / Bayern and win a few consecutive titles.

Outside of Pool and Spurs it's funny how teams seem to be mentally defeated even before the kick-off against City, from players to manager Laughing


City played Aresnal Thurs and Sun had Chelsea, while Chelsea had a week off, they beat City last season on their ground.

Conte plan today, "let's not get thrashed lads" rofl

Possible. Another €500M  spending spree could do it. Add an extra €150M so he could combat the likes of Wigan in the FA Cup next time round.

I don't think they were mentally defeated so much as simply getting outclassed by City.

What I respect most about Guardiola is that he doesn't have a Messi or Ronaldo in his team. And let's face it, his team is not intimidating at all, so the fear factor is also out of the window. He's winning mostly thanks to his tactics.

The same can also be applied to Spurs and Liverpool, although to be fair to them Pochettino and Klopp didn't spend nearly as half the money as Guardiola. They just happen to be great managers. But I still think that even though Guardiola has spent more than both of them combined, he's tactically superior.

How about you change those figures to proud brexit pounds and then we'll talk, son.



Ps. Will be interesting to see when D Silva starts declining (he's 32) and can they replace him. Apart from him and Aguero it's kinda scary how young that attack of theirs is.

I mean it was obvious last season that the players didn't understand or get to the grips with the tactics.

Last season they were all over the place when pressing, they didn't understand how to do it properly and just looked like a bunch of headless chickens.

Of course Pep made his own mistakes but the improvements in adaption from the players is obvious so the Pep was there last season argument doesn't really work.

You only have to watch any game this season to see the difference, they barely get hit on the counter at all anymore.

Best in the world this year. An English team is winning the CL 100%

5 teams in the knockouts. Chelsea who are utter shite dominated Barca over 90 mins until Messi salvaged something. Spurs the second worst team from the PL in the knockouts, dominated Juventus, already thrashed Madrid in the groups. Best league in the world in terms of quality.

Way too early to even consider it tbh, football like most sport is a copy cat sport.

Teams will do everything in their power to put together teams which counter the champions, plus it's very hard mentally to repeat consistently.

Especially in a league where most teams are capable of spending upwards of 60-120m.

Yeah this league will never be a one team league for a long time. At least not in the way it is set up now.

Spurs and Chelsea have done well against the other favorites (Barca, Juve, Madrid) literally any of the PL sides can win it, besides Loserpool of course.
