I'm not near a computer right now. Apparently someone snapped a pic of his paystub in his car and it has been going around on whatsapp. It has his bank account, health insurance, home address, annual salary, etc...

People don't take jobs based off of "looking for a challenge" if that was the case he would consider coaching Villa, this isn't FIFA where we play and see if we can take a championship side to the top of the EPL for the sake of a challenge, in real life people go where they have the best chance to succeed. Besides the EPL will be a challenge in and of itself because he's never managed there before. There is nothing wrong with Pep going to City if he wants it's just a lot of people mostly fans of other clubs don't view that as the glamorous option when in reality compared to the other clubs current situations he is supposedly considering City is the correct choice.

Then why is he leaving? Dude has it too easy hence wanting a challenge
post #20651 of 50776
I imagine he's leaving for more money

And masking the fact he can't win the CL with a top 3 club in the world

So he's choosing to switch it up and win EPL trophies cause it will give him more recognition even if he doesn't win anymore CL
post #20652 of 50776
Pep,according to his biography, is a big lover of footy tradition/history though laugh.gif. That's one of the reasons he chose Bayern even when he had a shot at Chelsea's job at the same time

Prove he can lead us to a Champions League title and maybe a stretch of dominating the Premier League in the future. Him taking over won't be a walk in the park. Our fullbacks are aging, inconsistent play, Aguero being unable to stay healthy and only 3, 4 at the most are bagging in goals for us consistently. We don't have the history but he can write his name in the history books or try.

In not saying he's going to accomplish everything he wants at City but its not going to be easy. Face it, he's the Phil Jackson, Bill Belichick, Coach K, Nick Sabans of the world. Why would he put himself in a situation where he won't have all the tools and platform to build upon and be successful?

We already have his play style and proven players already. If we can get some younger fullbacks, another dependable striker and depth on our bench we will be on the rise in European competition. Coming to City will be more of a challenge than staying at Bayern or when he left to go there in the first place.

Pep has won a CL with a top 3 club before hell some people think that Barca team is the greatest team of al time...he doesn't has to prove anything to us and even if he did he's already done it.

This we can all agree on laugh.gifglasses.gif
post #20659 of 50776
I personally think his time at Bayern was a failure simply for the fact he didn't make it to a CL finals. The Team went to 3 finals in 4 yrs before him. They spent a ridiculous amount on players that he wanted and he still couldn't make the team better than before he came.
post #20660 of 50776

Also lets not act like Pep has never been challenged before. That Barca side he took over the year before had only 67 points in the previous season ending in third and 10 behind Villareal. He takes over and then Eto is gone, Dinho is gone, Deco is gone as well as some other players and then he still goes on to win La Liga with 87 points and the treble and six trophies total that calendar year going six for six.

He won some trophies but I agree,when Bayern fans look back they'll probably wonder what could have been. Instead they can reminisce on getting embarrassed in back to back semi's by Spanish teams laugh.gifsick.gif. He still has this year to turn it around but given that that was his main aim for coming to Bayern,his time might be looked at in disappointment.

I will say that he's had Bayern playing some of the most attractive footy I've ever seen from Bayern squads pimp.gif

How is City supposed to compete with Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Bayern?

They can't

Ehh that's where I'll have to disagree. Pep had a boatload of talent when he took over Barca not including the La Masia talent they had. A few names like Henry and Yaya were signed before he joined and that squad still made the CL semi. He's the one that offloaded the players you mentioned because they didn't fit into his plans. He replaced them with a few of the Barca mainstays we see now like Alves,Busquets,Mascherano and Pique and even stars like Ibra and Villa. All this to say that he didn't really have a "rebuilding" job per se,he was brought in to maximize on that teams potential

If he wants a challenge, he should build a treble winning world beater on Arsenals transfer budget


That's a real challenge

I see where you're coming from but I still say that was a challenge because he still had to bring in the right replacement talent and manage them all properly which is not an easy feat. So I would still say in a way he rebuilt the team

We may not be able to now but we have the potential if Pep does decide to go to City and build that team thats fits his plans I would be very confident we could truly compete with those teams.

Pep is going to have a challenge in the EPL no matter what. Can someone tell me the last time he won in Stoke on a cold, rainy night?


But he'll have a real challenge in trying to win the CL with any of these EPL clubs.

there is much talk about city having more financial resources than united but United was never "broke" or didn't have the money. They bought decent players and put a squad together and still competed. SAF never spent more than 30 mil on a player only one were berbatov, ferdinand and heron was close . players developed under him. I think it just comes down to the managers intentions and what he wants to do at the club. If he wants to call a squad his and develop players from academy then united would be better than city imo. but if he wants a squad where you say the talent is there and maybe there are some fixes and just put a squad together then city is the way to go.
post #20668 of 50776

The only thing I would care to point out to that is I know a lot of United fans that think the state of their academy is in bad shape. A United fan here who maybe knows more than me on that topic should chime in as i can't speak on it to much since i'm only repeating others that I know sentiments on that topic.

yea i don't know much of it wither and i don't know if standing does it justice. I see that they are second with a couple game sin hand but i don't know every clubs youth talent but from what ever seen over the past year, united (not trying to be biased) has had the most Academy player appearances in EPL (source: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/academies-produced-most-premier-league-7224364) and as far as actually ages Martial, Januzaj, Memphis, Shaw, Wilson, Powell, Pereira are a good look for the future
post #20670 of 50776

Yeah standings don't do academy players justice your right about that. It's about appearances they get with the senior team and what they can do with those chances
