Peps just confirmed he's going premier league. Where is going /sp/?
"Guardiola was speaking at his first press conference since announcing he will leave the Bundesliga giants at the end of the season.
He said: "I haven't decided on a new club yet. I want to experience a new city and I want to work in England. That is the reason I have taken this decision. "
Chelsea and mourinho have cucked him multiple times over the years, he even said the 2-2 at the camp nou had a huge effect on him psychologically and chelsea is mourinho personified as a club.
Taking over the team and molding them into a disgusting possession based meme team that gets blown out in important games like CL semifinals would be his ultimate revenge
You know what I was initially sad about this but I think it's good for Pep. He gets reunited with friends at City and gets complete control of a squad which will be good for football. I was initially sad because I thought it made us invincible but Pep has been beaten and we can do it again. Honestly he's a great guy and he cares a lot. I really wished he was ours for good just because of that but he always be a very special person in Bayern history and he's done wonderful these past years. Would be incredible to go out with a bang and win the champions league but even if we don't who cares, it's been a great journey. All the best Pep!
Hes a spineless, money hungry piece of shit who didnt even consider it necessary to tell people about his future himself. Seems like Ibra wasnt so wrong after all. Let this imbecile leave.
>le beating barca with an inferior squad in the semi final
>le blowing out poop to win the league title and break goal and point records
pep literally cannot stop getting cucked in the semi finals of the CL now
He's going to Man City or Man Utd
He knows Chelsea could sack him after after a bad run, whereas the other two would tough it out
I think there's more upside at Utd in terms of improving the team, but City have a better starting base
Maybe he has settled on City, but is keeping his powedr dry in case Utd come in for him
Lol at all the salty Buyern fans, your club is just another shag for pep, he never cared about you, he comes in, spunks his beautiful football all over the club and leaves
>muh muh biggest club in bumdeadliga
>muh muh history
>muh muh beautiful city
>a semi final against PSG invalidates a 15 year career
go stuff yourself with burgers
>the 2010 inter milan team was superior to barcelona with messi
why the fuck are americans allowed to post here? I swear to god all of you only started watching the sport in the last 18 months
>burgers and leafs arguing about football
the miracles of the internet
So you are saying mourinho didnt in fact beat pep in the CL in 2010?
Or win the liga title over peps barca?
And Chelsea didnt beat peps barca in 2012?
Like i dont even understand what you are trying to say you autistic burger addicted piece of obesity
i heard a story of some immigrant living in manchester who'd had enoug of it and was moving back to his shit country instead, i thought that was funny. manchester could be a decent enough city i guess.
in the book about his first year at bayern theres a description of him visiting different clubs training grounds before deciding on who to coach
at united's training ground he said that "he could see himself coaching here someday." he said that about bayern too and he ended up coaching them
they're dropping hits lads
if he has any balls, Man Utd
what's the point of going to Chelsea or City? so he wins the EPL with plastic clubs with infinite monies. He will get no respect for doing it as it's actually happening, and in 30 years time he'll be able to say "I managed Manchester City" and people will say "never heard of them".
To bring Man Utd back to greatness, and create a dynasty with a real club, that's what will get him respect.
>what's the point of going to Chelsea or City? so he wins the EPL with plastic clubs with infinite monies.
You're not allowed to use this argument any more. Fuck Chelsea and City too, but fuck Utd fans thinking they're any different.
honestly don't know why other leagues bother. they serve as cuck platforms for one (or two in spain) money clubs to have a safe space for the CL campaign.
the prem is the only proper league worth watching week in week out.
yeah so better that they were so fucking wrong.
He's riding to ManU, because this is england's bayern/barça. He said plenty times that he loved the most club with history. City Chelsea they have none.
Mark my words.
>inb4 deluded ManU fan
I don't like "english" soccer
Hasn't he said previously that he likes Man Utd as a club and would like to work there one day? Seems to me that he's dropping a hint to the board so they can get rid of van Gaal at the end of the year and appoint him instead.
As a United fan I don't know how I'd feel about that. Don't really like the style of football he plays, but we've been trophyless for a while now and it's got to be said that he gets results (albeit at the 2 easiest jobs of all time).
If you don't like it then you aren't following it, and if you're not following it then you'll know this is objectively very unlikely.
Don't bother arguing by the way, since this is an area you apparently dislike, so you obviously won't know enough about it.

I'm following this lad Pep since a while however, I know how he likes his things done.
>Furthermore, Sala Martín let us know the preferences of the Catalan coach for the clubs of the future: "Pep likes aclubs with a lot of history, with jerseys with history. Yes, he was willing to go to Manchester United. He also likes clubs like Arsenal or Liverpool."
Not arguing at all.
confirmed for having only watched the match against barca
Heynckes' Bayern played possession football in every single game of that treble winning season other than 1 game vs Arsenal and the Barcelona tie
the only teams they could truly dominate were Conte's Juventus in their first CL season and Barcelona who were in utter shambles at that point. They finished level on points with Valencia in the group stage (losing to BATE in the process), were 1 goal away from going out against fucking Arsenal, beat Dortmund on a last minute winner, beat Dortmund in the cup final with some major refball and couldn't beat Dortmund in the league
Heynckes' bayern was good. But that's it. Bayern had a lot of luck in 12-13. Look at their calendar. Many games were won like 2-1.
Today's Bayern is extremely superior to Heynckes' but opposition has streghten too.
To be fair I literally just did watch that game and based all of my predictions on it (what a beautiful game though).
Can't believe I've been out-footballed by a handegg-loving Amerifat. I am ashamed :'(
I am so glad you faggots take him from us
THANK YOU SO MUCH
He is the worst thing that happened to Bayern
Thank you british cucks have fun with this faggot
I despise Man City but all of Pep's mates (background staff) from Barca are there. It's the obvious decision.
I'd rather he replaced LVG at United but something tells me LVG will see out his final year.
infinite moneys at Man Utd, Man City, and Chelsea, honestly can't call this one fellas
The allure of London is sure to be a major factor, but with Man Utd he has the legacy already built for him
He could even go to chelsea because it would be the ultimate Mourinho cuck, cucking the antithesis to his thesis would be unreal
City because a few of his mates are there, but its a nothing club
>what will GWAAAAARDEEEEEOLA do?
can you imagine Pep at Chelsea? Mourning would come the most KEKED man on earth
1. no they haven't, manchester united have always been one of the best if not THE BEST run football clubs in the world
2. the debt they've had in the past 10 years is 100% down to the glazers takeover and 0% to do with how manchester united is run as a football club
They also thought Di Maria was the 3rd best player in the World when they signed him.
It's literally undisputed fact. This has nothing to do with opinions. A simple google search will save you a lot of embarrassment in future.
>they never will again
Wow. Congratulations on totally contradicting yourself in the SAME SENTENCE. That takes some doing. I mean, that's a really special skill. It takes a special kind of idiot to do that.
He already peaked. LaLiga is just utter shit so he stands out.
Hell, even current Rooney would hit 30-40 a season without breaking a sweat in that shit-tier league.
Martial at present is comfortably better than Ronaldo was in 2009 and any period since 2009-2016.
>This booty blasted Jewnited fan
Is there anything in football more pathetic?
Last time I checked Ferguson was an employee of Manchester United.
>You were only good because you were good!
>You only won because you had the best team constructed out of perfectly balanced players!!
>You only did well because you had the GOAT!!
Dutch City bandwagoner has to be 1.
Also, Purgatory was actually a genuinely good poster. He deliberately trolled the shit out of ABUs and he was very successful in meeting his goals.
The joke, if anything, is on you for not getting it and being buttblasted by him.
Right then. So the following weren't good signings?
Cantona for a mill
Ole Gunner Solskjaer
van Der Sar for 2 mill
Ronaldo for 12 mill
Vidic for 6 mill
Evra for a couple mill
Hernandez for 6-9 million
Ferguson was arguably the GOAT in the transfer market. It wasn't his strongest aspect of management, no, but he was up there with the best of them.
also, inb4 someone starts listing players like Bebe, DjembaX2 etc. Same list can be made for any manager on the planet. Can they make a list of GOOD signings as big as Fergie's though? No.
>get Chelsea relegated
>shit on his work up till that point this way
>get Chelsea in top 4 and get them far in UCL
>kek him of his own success
There's no winning for Mou if Poop goes to Chelshit. Only way is if Poop keeps it mediocre, like top 9-13 team
16 to compliment maybe 5-10 homegrown footballers is somehow a bad record?
Yeah okay then m8, no idea what level of reality you are operating under.
Name a manager who has signed/produced half of this number in 20 years.
Pro-Tip: You can't.
van Der Sar
Park Ji Sung
and then countless others who made it at other clubs but weren't quite good enough for United or not a good fit
>First go ahead and name another manager with 20 years at a top 3 world club that also had nearly unlimited money to spend
You just provided a great argument to back up what I'm saying.
I guess my work here is done.
Talk to you later /sp/, good night
I'm sure he could.
But can he re-develop an entire youth academy, scout out 4-5 world class players at the age of 18-22 and then go on to win multiple league titles and champions leagues whilst spending less than 3 of his domestic rivals over a period of 20 years?
Not a fucking chance.
How many of those spent 26 years at the biggest club in England (20 at worst, 92-2012), with a monopoly on foreign talent?
Both of his CL wins were pure luck too, 2 late goals in 99 and Terry slipping in 08
>mfw poonited will never EVER win anything again without whiskey nose
>2 late goals
I didn't realise that late goals count as luck now. When did this happen?
Wouldn't you say Chelsea were more lucky to hold onto a 1-1 when they were being absolutely battered and killed during the 90 minutes? Cech made 5-6 incredible saves, Tevez hit the post and the bar. Rooney hit the post. The ball was in Chelsea's third for 70% of the match. Drogba got a red card for slapping a player and Terry should have got a red card for spitting on Tevez.
If anything, Chelsea were lucky to take it to penalties. It made them look better than they were. It made them look like they were close rivals to Man United when the reality (and it's reflected in the league) was they were not close at all.
Also you want to talk about bad luck?
>Rafael red vs Bayern 2010
>Nani red vs Madrid 2013
>Fletcher red against Arsenal (missed the final) in 2009
Jog on lad.
>a billion dollars
Ferguson's average season spend was around 26 million pounds, significantly less than Chelsea, City, Liverpool and Spurs in the period 1986-2012.
If you count NET spend, then it's significantly less than that.
Hope this helps with your 'math' Amerifat.
Man city have already spent a billion and come back with a better list of stars than ferguson
Sterling, De Bruyne, Aguero, Boateng, Kompany were all bought in that age range in about 20 less years than ferguson had and they are all now among the best at their respective positions
They've also revamped their academy to the point that it's widely regarded as the best in England
If you're talking about refereeing decisions you should mention the 20 years of favourable ones manure got too, many of which influenced the table's outcome, unlike those 3 you mentioned where Man U would have been slapped around regardless.
Keep using your idiotic london slang though like a true manchester fan.
>I didn't realise that late goals count as luck now. When did this happen?
I remember ABUs talking about how lucky United were to score so many late goals. It's hilarious they can't even see how poor their own logic is.
If they keep doing it, consistently, again and again then how is it luck?
Last time I checked, a football match lasts 90 minutes + stoppage times. Maybe other teams should focus and put in more effort right until the end if they don't like conceding late on?
2 league wins in 7 years is already a better start than Ferguson and they have a way higher level of financial and talent competition
Do you genuinely believe man city wins less than 2 CLs in the next 20 years?
>those 3 you mentioned where Man U would have been slapped around regardless
Confirmed for not even watching the games. They were absolutely destroying Bayern and Madrid.
Only an idiot would say Fletcher wasn't missed against Barcelona. He was THE perfect footballer to play against that Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets midfield.
>Do you genuinely believe man city wins less than 2 CLs in the next 20 years?
They'll never fucking win it you absolute dolt. This year is their last attempt before FFP fucks them. Now with Platini gone there is nobody left to protect PSG and the other clubs ruining football.
>Darren Fletcher is THE perfect footballer to beat the Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets triumvirate
Holy fucking shit im not done yet hahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha get a grip you fucking moron
you're a fucking idiot.
fergie took over in a very different time of football. now it's instant success or fuck off. watch as shitty go through a manager every 2 years for the next 20 chasing their dream (which hilariously no one else will give a shit about)
Do you even understand how FFP works? Man city are well within the boundaries set by FFP and are in fact on pace to make some huge profits in the coming years
are all manure fans this uninformed?
Yeah but noble united don't do anything of the sort
Is that why city's revenue is up to 512m and Uniteds fell 8 percent to 392m? How do you actually lose revenue when you're the "biggest" club in the world?
I don't get it.
Maybe you have a short memory, but Fletcher was genuinely a world class midfielder and absolutely destroyed the likes of Bayern Munich, Inter and AC Milan, Arsenal, Chelsea etc. regularly.
He was arguably more important to Man United in that 2009 final than Rooney or Ronaldo were. It was a massive, massive loss. The game was lost in midfield as expected.
>"I thought before the game it may have been a problem," the United manager admitted. "I knew it might count against us because he [Fletcher] is a big-game player. And he was a big loss for us. It's difficult to say how big, and they [Barcelona] had players missing too, but it showed itself for us tonight."
Seriously, stop embarrassing yourself and your country.
I'm starting to feel sorry for genuine American football fans who talk sensibly about the sport and are well informed.
Seriously. Stop. Please.
They don't even own their stadium.
>american understanding of business
aren't you guys meant to be clued up on this sort of thing, what with your fancy business schools and such?
let me explain it in simple terms
if the arabs pull out tomorrow, city will, within maybe 2-3 years be unable to pay any player more than 100k a week
as some players have contracts that are longer than 2-3 years, the club will be thrown into debt very quickly and they'll have to sell off their assets (players)
they'd be finished overnight
hope this helps
United literally confirmed in a press conference a few months ago that pep had already chosen another english club. Hes going to city its just not official yet considering it'd be disrespectful to pellegrini and city and bayern could still potentially play each other in the CL. You're deluded if you think otherwise.
>He said: "I haven't decided on a new club yet.
he said the same when he announced he was leaving barcelona, and then it turned out he had already agreed with bayern 6 months before. Probably not mentioning the club in case they have to face them in cl
>Fletcher was genuinely a world class midfielder
Why do you guys do this, Fletcher was never a world class midfielder, not even remotely, just like Carrick was never good either, I still remember how united fans said that Anderson was going to be world class when it was clear it was never going to happen.
Mancunians are always taking the piss off scousers for their delusion, but yours is anything short of them seriously.
you've given me zero financial figures to dispute anything I've said, great debate here
Who gives a fuck if they don't technically own the stadium they have it for literally as long as they want to use it and can expand it as much as they want?
>if the arabs pull out
Yeah m8 you're a fucking busniess genius, the arabs are going to pull out after investing billions and finally getting the club into a profitable position where its valued as a top 5 club in the world. Makes perfect business sense, invest in an asset and then toss it away for nothing once it finally makes you money. And of course you think whoever took over the team would of course be some poor manchester mug who can't afford any players instead of some rich russian or other arab that could still throw loads of money at the club
Unless you're well off (at least £80k-£100k a year salary) London isn't a great place to live.
Way too busy.
Way too expensive and no value. You pay so much more but don't get more for your money.
If you work in London the chances are you work in the city centre. If you live in London, the chances are you can't afford to live in the city centre. (Property costs at least £1-2 million) Therefore you have a 2 hour daily commute.
That's 20 days per year you spend traveling back and forward to work.
20 sets of 24 hours.... Let that sink in. Imagine spending 20 days every year sat on a stinking tube or train.
Meanwhile, for the same money you could buy a 4 bedroom penthouse in Manchester overlooking the canals.
It's not a question if the Arabs pull out or not, the point is that City as a club, as a self-sufficient entity (ignoring their owners wealth) are a shit-tier joke of a club and are no bigger or wealthy/powerful than the likes of Blackburn Rovers, Wigan or Stoke.
Get over it.
City are a small, poor club with rich owners.
United are a rich, superpower club with VERY poor owners.
United without their owners = Even bigger and richer
City without their owners = Absolutely nothing
You're just a bitter northerner its so obvious, have fun trying to light a fire with your tinder box tonight, heard the winter is gonna be particularly cold this year, so you won't be dining on squirrel meat again anytime soon as they'll all be dead
>not abject poverty
the vibrance and thousands of different activities and services by far make up for it, it's the culture hub of England, pls mate you'd be hard pressed to find a better city in England than London
And the average person cannot afford to pay for their £2500 a month cardboard box apartment and also be able to spend £200 a week going to shows and expensive London clubs.
If you're a millionaire, I'm sure it's a great place to live. You can buy a flat in a nice area close to the city centre. Knightsbridge, Kings Road, Park Lane, Mayfair.
For 99.9% of people? It's not a great place to live.
I can see why footballers love it but I've lived in London for 7 years now and to be honest, I'm just biding my time until I can get a job elsewhere.
don't forget homeless people. streets full of gypsies in shop doorways ffs, modern day london is like Victorian london, except now it's 10 million people cramped into 1500 square kilometres
City has money, good players and friends of his.
He wouldn't go to Chelsea. Like him or not, Pep is smart. He would likely ask for total transfer control and the sale of rebel players to clean up Chelsea like he did at Barca.
Abramovic would never do that.
not everyone in London is the monopoly man ffs
Every city has its blemishes but even the notoriously dangerous parts of London are starting to clean up eg. Hackney, Stratford
and plenty of people commute from the suburbs of Metropolitan London, you should know as you've lived there for years, it's still the best city imo
Do you not know anyone that does this nowadays? It's pretty common in any actually good company.
You're based out of an office in London but work remotely, maybe travel down to the actual physical office once or twice every month.
I can't see Pep going to City.
He's a football hipster. He's all about class, prestige, atmosphere, the stadium, the fans, history, especially history he bangs on and on about history, traditions etc.
I just can't see him going to City. I really can't. If he does then I'm going to lose all respect I had for him. It'd be him abandoning all his principles for an easy life, a high salary and an odds on chance of winning the league in another country so he can add it to his CV.
Abramovic loves Chelsea, he wants what's best for our success
If Pep wanted that kind of power, Abramovic would relinquish it I think, as Pep has a great track record
With abrasive people like Mourinho whom turn everything to shit yeah no way, but Pep, not so sure
I didn't say it was a total shithole m8. I quite like many aspects of it.
It's just grossly overrated. It's a very awkward place to get around and there is no value. You get ripped off everywhere you go.
I currently live in a one bed apartment. I rent because there is no way I can afford to buy. I'd need to save for 10-15 years to afford the deposit and by that time I might have a family and I'd need 2 or 3 bedrooms. Ridiculous.
For the rent I pay in London (4 years worth) I could have paid for a deposit and 2 years mortgage payments on a small mansion anywhere else in the country (barring the areas around London, Edinburgh and Aberdeen).
It's absolutely sickening when you think about it. I've killed myself for 4 years, working every day for what? I have nothing to show for it.
Wenger had to work on this thing called a budget m8. He was fucking immense at getting value for money.
that 5 for instance cost circa 10m.
>a wenger signing
Come back when you get a clue.
Bookies don't base their odds on the facts of life, they base their odds on what idiots are betting on.
For example, if I were to make a £50 billion bet on Pep to Stoke tomorrow , Stoke would become favourites.
Hope this helps.
Mourinho is Chelsea's greatest ever coach and the man that built the Chelsea that won so many titles.
Even him didn't get a lot of freedom. Heck, back in the day he lost his job due to not playing Shevchenko.
I could literally name 20+ shite youth 'talents' that never made it to regular first team football, fall back g
While that makes sense, because obviously people are betting on something for a reason (they think it's likely) and therefore it is more likely to be likely than an outcome that is not deemed likely, it is definitely NOT a sign that it will happen. I've seen betting suspended on many a thing in my time.
Last summer for example, Bale to United was suspended among talk of a fallout with his fellow players.
It happens regularly after a big 'news' story. It's just because the betting companies can't handle all the new bets they're getting and can't work out what odds to give in time. They need to sit and calculate it properly so they can balance the books and make profits.
our spine for years wasn't even his doing, Terry was already there, Frank too, and Ranieri scouted Drogba
I'm not saying he isn't a world class manager in his own right, but he's made some very grave errors e.g selling KDB, Lukaku, Cech, alienating Joe Cole etc.
>you said Wenger was undisputed GOAT transfer connoisseur
Mate Wenger's track record is attrocious, makes a hilarious blunder every season
True current managerial transfer GOATS are as follows
He was against selling Cech and Joe Cole loves him. He was wring in selling KDB and Mata for Oscar and Lukaku for Costa, but every manager makes mistakes. Remember Pep and Ibra. Actually, in terms of transfers, Mourinho is one of the best as seen in Inter and Real.
Also, he made Chelsea much stronger. It is not just about buying players.
there are some absolute car crash signings there.
wasn't that bad in his first seasons, got lazy afterwards
only to get that chinese market
he didn't really get to manage him though, and moyes trashed him instantly
wasn't that bad, but got perma-crocked after a while
bought him in order to save Nani from being banned because of drugs
Don't agree with them all.
Was fine. Just not £30 million fine. World class player who didn't fit.
Went on to become world class. Talent was always there.
One of the best goalkeepers in the past 20 years. World cup winning GK. Had some howlers sure, but not a terrible signing.
Was fine for a backup.
Great player. Unlucky not to make it. He's found his level now. Not a bad signing at all. Good spot.
See above. Good, just not United quality.
Nowhere near as bad as people make out. Was a very important player in 2007-09 and had some great spells at the club. Especially the 2011 season. Shame about his fitness and injuries though. Make no mistake though, this lad DOMINATED the likes of Gerrard, Lampard, Fabregas time and time again. He clearly had potential and class. Just not the right mind-set to make it as a world class footballer. Waste.
Are you fucking serious? He was fantastic. Great attitude. He would leave everything on the field. Will never forget his performance against Chelsea at Old Trafford or his performance against Roma and AC in the Champions League. Fucking loved that lad. Wish the current players had 50% of this guy's attitude.
Also, most of them are < £5 million punts.
Players that were never expected to make it but were bought because they showed something and could maybe be squad players or be developed into something special in the future.
Ferguson himself knew that most of them would never make it. They were just little gambles.
You're talking as if he signed Dong and Manucho secure in the knowledge that these guys would become the next Cantona or something....
They were just punts. No big deal. A lot of them never even played a single game for the first team.
Kek this is insanity. You blow 20m on Zaha and Tosic then write it off with 'lol not bad signings just not united class'.
Veron was fine we were just silly to pay 30m and not the 3m he warranted.
Never been to England, can someone tell me why Manchester is shit to live in?
So far I've heard that the only place where it's nice to live is in London and that Stoke City is a really shitty place
What are you going on about? Zaha is still a fucking kid. He could still become England's greatest ever footballer yet. You don't know that yet.
£12 million was a decent deal. Didn't raise any eyebrows at the time.
C. Ronaldo was a similar footballer with similar potential and was signed for the exact same amount of money. Look how that one turned out.
Maybe if Ferguson stayed and actually managed Zaha (as opposed to Moyes) he'd have similar results again.
In fact, I don't think it's even fair at all to list Zaha as a Ferguson failure. He didn't play a single game under Fergie.
m8 Veron was arguably the best player in the world alongside the likes of Zidane when he was signed
similar to di Maria in that he failed to adapt to the PL.
he was a £30 million player who performed like a £15 million player and was literally sold on to Chelsea for that exact figure
I wasn't arguing against Wenger t.b.h lad, I think Wenger was brilliant in the transfer market too.
Fergie and Wenger were both masters. Two of the very best.
In fact, in the past 30 years I'd say without a doubt THE best 2.
I went to Manchester to study for a year and it was the best year of my life. Might have something to do with the fact I fell in love with a grill there (she wasn't from Manchester) and actually found some friends that I hung out with regularly, but It was my GOAT year and the only year I have that's worth remembering.
So I won't hear a bad word against it.
>they give themselves 400 million
>the club isn't even worth 400 million
>they give themselves 400 million but they're not worth 400 million
Jesus christ how thick is your head? Have you even seen their youth academy facilities? This is why I hate manure fans.
It's pretty simple m8.
FFP only allows a club to spend what they make from football related activities.
This is an attempt so stop oilfags ruining the sport by spending their personal savings on players.
With me so far?
Now, to counter-act this, City's owners, who also own a lot of companies, have sponsored themselves.
So what that means is the income shows up as 'legit football income from football-related activities such as sponsors' whereas the reality is they would NEVER EVER EVER IN A BILLION YEARS take in that much money from a sponsor, because they aren't worth it. They are a mickey mouse club with no fans. Nobody cares about them.
It's not rocket science. It's common knowledge and has been for years now.
>Have you even seen their youth academy facilities
There is no limit to how much money the owners spend on facilities. They can spend trillions if they like and it won't count towards FFP.
And now that Platini is gone, this sort of thing is going to kick into overdrive.
So they won't even be allowed to do this anymore.
my heart hurts
i miss that magnificent old man
>Guardiola could yet move to Manchester United - if they act quickly. The Spaniard has spoken to both Manchester clubs, turned down an offer from Chelsea and would also consider Arsenal
The worst about Poop joining a british team will be that moment when his team starts playing well and then all britfags on spee will start claiming that any shit player is a GOAT and all those future GOATS with every young player he makes play.
But he will join ManUnited tbqh
Ok this is what is going to happen:
Arsenal are his obvious choice since they already play similar style of football when compared to peps philosophy which means there will be a shorter adjustment period compared to the other clubs
(>inb4 he changed bayerns play style in one season and still won the league.
Bundesliga is a one horse race)
Anyway, that all depends on what wenger achieves this season. Also they have a massive budget and they invest alot into youth development which pep also likes. Lastly London>manshitster.
Second choice is utd for spending power and also good up and coming youth players but the time it might take to implement his philosophy and to get the team fully on song can fuck everything up for him in his 1st season. Just look at van laal now.
3rd choice is city followed by chelsea but I doubt he'd go to any of them since there's a high risk of sacking.
>mfw Guardiola/next Arsenal manager wins a domestic treble the first season after Wenger leaves
>not continental treble
He'll just get bored and leave after three years to go to Italy probably. Arsenal would go for a >moyes after Wenger I reckon. Someone to deal with the transition.
Pep is 44? Three years in epl, three in Italy. 4 years Spain to go to a wc and euros. Then what? Retire? Back to barca?
Can't see him staying long anywhere.
