I definitely think the coaching in the league has slowly caught up with Pep so he’s no longer the shining star he was. He could mix things up again though as he’s done before. City have the advantage of being to buy anyone they want (and suspiciously always for a similar, easily amortised price) so he could decide one morning he wants to play 4-4-2 with a big man/little man combo up front and they’d bring in the players in the space of two windows.Fuck the Glazers wrote: ↑2 months ago Something may be happening at City. 4 games without a win, and an un-City like performance vs Villa.
People are saying City were out-fought and out-manuvered in a way we haven't seen.
Is it post treble lag? Is Pep being found out? Has the Everton verdict shit them up?
Also shows how their treble was nowhere near the emotional achievement of 99. Remember how good we were in 1999-2000. It blasted us onto a different planet. For City it’s the least that is expected after all the money invested. Much more rational affair.
