Will be interesting to see what happens with Pep in the summer. Unless the unthinkable happens, they wont win the league and if they don't win or even make the final of the Champions League again then surely the season has to go down as a monumental failure for them. Regardless of whether they win the FA Cup and energy drink cup. I don't think there is any doubt about it either that the only reason they are going to win the cup vs Villa is because we were unable to compete in the QF, I think we'd have had it otherwise.
The amount of money he spent in the summer, yet again, then to be so far behind in the league, and not win the CL, it's nothing but a failure. You look at how Spurs binned Poch, Chavs binned Jose, Leicester binned Ranieri etc, and how City have gone through managers, he's a lucky man to still be in a job. 22 points behind is nothing short of an embarrassment for them.
Mentally, I don't think his team can even recover from that going into next season if they don't have the boost of winning the Champions League.
Read he's also made the most changes to his team this season; 76 different set ups, 30 more than us. It's like he's trying to prove he's some master tactician, probably why he plays up to it in front of the camera at matches.
Aside from Bernardo Silva and arguably Laporte and possibly Ederson, have any of his signings lived up to their price tag and hype? Their best players; KDB, David Silva, Aguero, Sterling and Fernandinho were all at the club before him. Obviously he's gotten the best out of them, but he wasn't responsible for them being there. It's not like he has had the success from his signings like Klopp has.
His time at City is coming to an end and is now currently relying on the past 2 seasons, domestically to keep him in a job. Been a complete failure up to this point in Europe.
We've wiped the floor with them this season and I really hope we dump them out the Champions League again this year.
