No trophies after spending a gazillion pounds. Most overrated manager in history.

Greatest manager in the history of the game letting instagram star Evra and part time pundit Berbatov get into his head.

The defending of his City team has been appalling for a game where they really just need a draw. Surely you'd focus on shoring up the defence today. But not Pep.

He really shouldn't be messing this up. Whenever his team is missing up two-three players they crumble.

Playing old man Fernandinho as a CB against a team that will always try to run in behind with Bowen and Antonio :lol:

Managers like Klopp and SAF are so ahead of this guy it's not even funny. He consistently makes baffling tactical decisions, but wins leagues because he can afford to play 2 starting XIs whereas most other teams with european competitions have a core that play every game.

Should schedule therapy sessions and ask Evra to lead them.

He's a genius, signing one of the best young strikers in the world. Why didn't other clubs think of that?

Question, why not play Rodri at CB and Fernandinho?

Rodri has the physicality and legs.

Agreed, can you imagine Klopp or Fergie managing this game and not making any subs?

Why doesn't he play Ake. Ake is a CB, isn't he? Also can play full back.

Obvious hindsight, but Pep would have done better playing Ake at RB against Real Madrid in the home leg and also today, as a CB. Fernandinho's legs are gone.

In terms of the attack, it's true. See their last 3-4 PL games and how they've rotated attackers.

For Liverpool until Diaz came in it was always Mane, Salah and Jota. Spurs play the same front 3. United usually Sancho, Ronaldo and whoever's least crap.
