What gets me is how quickly the City fans have turned against Pep. Even if his tactics were wrong we all make mistakes and many now want him sacked.
I'd jump at the chance of having him at Old Trafford. The mind boggles
Careful what you wish for Keith, is Pep in danger of becoming‘Maureen’ part deux, another cheque book manager, it’s starting to look like he could be, where his successes are purely down to spending Zillions,
It looks as though no matter how much money he has at his disposal he cannot build I side that all sing from the same song sheet, it’s as plain as the nose on your face there are too many individuals in his side, they look good when their humping teams with less than half their talent but up against any side capable of putting them under pressure they crumble like the crumbliest crumble ever crumbled in planet crumble,
His tactics last night were damn average, it should for me a total disrespect to their opponents, it looked like his thinking was, oh it’s only Lyon, we’ll piss all over them, their 7th in the top most French league, akin to playing Derby ,
Instead of, this the CL Q final, favourite to go the whole f***in hog, I need to put out my strongest X1, get the game won, he started without, D Silva, B Silva, Mahrez, and the so called boy wonder Foden,
Could you imagine Klopp starting a CL Q final without , Gini, Mane, Hendo, & Bobby ?
And what now of his players, his best players, what are thinking, that our gaffer has once again let us down, can we really trust his judgment when we need it most.
If I were you mate, I’d be looking at those managers who have in recent times stolen Pep’s thunder, managers like Rudi Garcia, Julien Nagelsmann, or even Nuno Espírito Santo, all of those mangers build rather than buy, it’s no coincidence that built sides have a better sense of togetherness than that of a side made up of individual parts,
But you will have to wait for Ole to end his love affair with mediocrity first 🤪
