Again managers can get it wrong and not everybody is cut out for it. I don't think anybody is saying Pep isn't a good manager. It's just whether he's a great manager that is up for debate. Given the squads he's had at his disposal and the money he has at City I think he's done well but as I've said, it has been repeated by managers who aren't seen as great.
There's a reason why those other managers aren't being considered as great as Pep and that's my whole point. Pellegrini for example would've only managed the very best clubs in Europe after his stint in City if there wasn't, instead he's been in West Ham and Betis.
I genuinely don't think you could play boring football with the players he has had. Barca were pretty exciting after he left too. City played great stuff under Pellegrini and Bayern were amazing before he took over. Didn't they trounce his Barcelona? Don't you agree that all of that is true? Managers do have some influence but if you put that 2011 Barca team out I reckon they'd still play some nice football.
Sure, but I wouldn't have the 2011 Barca team playing anywhere close to the way they did if I had taken over the club in 2008.
