Is this man a total fucking fraud?
Does he even employ any tactics, or does he just through as many oil mercenaries on the pitch as he can and just hope that their superior quality will outshine whatever 10 million pound squad they're up against?

Málaga Provincial Council: Gold Shield
literally the only relevant club in his country alongside colo colo, he should've won more stuff 2bh.
don't know shit about this because ecuador's football is pretty much amateur
this is an actual achievement.
literally the best club in argentina, the one with most titles and that was a period in which River won every single fucking national tournament.
oil money makes things rather easy
>Does he even employ any tactics
I'm a City fan, but if you think you need tactics in this Donkey League I have news for you.
He's clearly a pretty good manager.
The fact that shitty manage to win anything with that bunch of players is testament to that.
He does that whole defending with the edge of the box thing which is pretty clever and works most of the time.
He sets the team up in a way that allows the few players who actually try to influence the game and the ones who don't try at least stand in the right place.
I've watched city on tv three times in the last few weeks (Arsenal, Watford and Everton) and they've put in maximum of about 5 minutes effort combined.
Don't know why the media are criticising the defenders when they are the only good thing about city, everything is down to the midfield and most significantly Yaya Toure.
Don't get me wrong, I'm pissing myself watching him, but he trundles round like a paraplegic on opium.
No other team that I've ever watched do I get the sense that these players genuinely never hang out outside of training and games and that any of them actually enjoy playing football.
City have to be the most depressing team to watch. They show up, play at the slowest pace ever before seen, put in the occasional two minutes effort and still manage to win most of their games because they have talented players and because they are well managed.
They remind of those middle-aged divorced men who have a well paid executive job and three children they never see who go on in life completely alone and hating themselves but never end it or themselves because it's all too easy to accept the status quo.
Jesus, this is a good analysis.
You think it has something to do with the team lacking a history of winning? Like it's supposed by all parties that it's all just strictly for the money?
I'm not really sure.
Because you could say the same thing about Chelsea. But there you don't see the same level of acceptance for things that you do at city.
Clearly at Chelsea they wanted to get rid of Mou and they did. I could never see the City players doing that. Not because they particularly like Pell, but just because what would be the point.
Perhaps it is a lack of characters in the squad.
Chelsea always had Terry, Drogba and Lampard. Whereas City used to have Richards but he left and Kompany has been injured and doesn't seem as into it as he used to be.
All I know is it depresses me more to watch city play than it does to watch Villa play and I support Villa.
>IN LA LIGA WHEN PLAYING AGAINST 11 LITERAL WHOS
Woah, calm your beer belly my inbred friend.
I suppose you're confusing things there, nowdays the epl has the literal who some of the best players in your country are la liga rejects
and it's actually true that teams in the prem employ very little tactic in comparison to other european to leagues
>Perhaps it is a lack of characters in the squad.
It's this, yeah. Even when Chelsea had the oil money come in they kept some characters in the thread- Terry, Lampard- and some of the early signings became stalwarts for them- Cole, Cech, Drogba. And interestingly right as they just went down to one of them, their season flew off the rails with half the team clearly not giving a fuck.
City don't really have that anymore, save maybe for Kompany and occasionally Hart- and desu I get the impression most the City players don't listen to Hart. The fact they all know Pellers is a dead man walking right now probably doesn't help with motivation, as it stands more than a few of them are just fine putting in minimum effort and picking up their pay cheque.
Agree, >We need to get behind the team, and hope Yaya gets a 5month long injured. Also Pellegrini needs to start Nacho in the FA Cup ffs.
And >We can easily beat Neverton at home. Got the away go and I doubt we can keep a clean sheet at home, So need to outscore them by 2 goal in a win. 3-1 at home is doable.
yup, the one against malaga. iirc dortmund scored a goal in the 'last' minutes with 4 players offside.
And he didn't make it to the final with villarreal for a missed penalty? don't remember very well that one
It's freaking soccer. Your best players make good passes and keep the ball, your worst players fuck it all up, and sometimes everyone gets their shit together long enough to coincide with some luck to score a goal.
I don't think Pellegrini is a fraud. He has shown in other clubs that he's a pretty good manager and has a clear playing style. What happens in City is the same that happened to Chelsea this season. They are not motivated enough. They don't want to win. They get paid 200k pounds per week. That's why managers like Mourinho will never compare to Ferguson, who had success and kept his players hungry of more titles for decades, while Mourinho after two seasons drain the energy of his lockerroom.
Católica is the third most important club m8. But yes, he had a GOAT squad with Pipo Gorosito and Beto Acosta playing in Chile while they were still in the Argentina NT.
Exactly, that was against Malaga. And when he managed Villareal he would have made it to the finals only if Juan Roman Riquelme had scored that fucking penalty. He literally cucked the city of Villareal out of a final.
The players know he's going at the end of the season so they've stopped listening to him. That, and the squad is bizarre in that it's full of some utterly amazing players surrounded by some Liverpool quality players.
>literally best clubes
enjoy your tv giles
>he was never a starter under Fergie either
>he did jackshit in Spain
>went to Buyernwinsliga
>literally ripping it apart
>some american is defending chicha
>mfw mexicans in murica
>mfw hope trump wins
Its freaking football. You get a pack of niggers, feed them burgers, deep fried food, and steroids, have them run head first at each other as heavily as possible. The best players don't fall down when slammed by one nigger, the shitty ones fall down when they are, and occasionally one nigger is fast enough to run past a line.
>he only relevant club in his country alongside colo colo
Not really. Colo-Colo and U de Chile are the best ones.
But they are labeled as "Segundones" because they choke on finals (a little bit like the argentinian NT. maybe that's why he worked in River Plate. Good managing "pechos frios")
