Guardiola would be Villas-Boas mk2. High defensive line, which would be exploited like it was this season. Don't want him here at all, Would rather have Di Matteo.
RDM set us out how he did as he felt it gave us the best chance to win... We wern't playing highly defensive football in the prem, and with the aditions we have made/are making he will have more options.... I don't dislike pep but he is always given the highly attacking football mantra but if RDM was in charge of barca then he would obviously play highly attacking football... You can only work with what you have in the team... RDM for the job all the way....
You make a good point my friend.
Tacticaly, he is shit. All he can do is 'attack, attack, attack'. Once they lead, he makes bad changes (xavi out, keita in)...
Dont even say about transfers; Selling Toure, buying Ibra, Chygrinsky, Afellay, Adriano,...
Alexis is decent, Cesc wasnt his wish, but it was wish of barca to get back that kid. The only realy good buy he made was Villa.
He needed cb, but he never bought him...
He would won nothing, if there was no Messi Xavi and Iniesta. Once barca had problems, Pep did nothing because he is not good tactic.
The only good thing about him was that he knew barca style because he played there and he continued that mentality to his players. He was lucky to have such good squad.
That confirms he is perfect barca coach, maybe spanish too, but shit elsewhere where you need to play organised, tactical defense and when you need to make right changes. Here Di Matteo is much better motivator for our players and also knows club better. Besides RDm showed he knows how to play attack against napoli.
I realy hope we wont get Pep;
2. knows shit about english tactics
3. needs time
4. problems with older players (I doubt Cole, Terry and Lamps will run all attack like Puyol, Xavi or Alves at that age)
5. This is no barca with tiki taka, but Chelsea in ENGLISH league. It would take years to give players that mentality of barca.
6. We have RDM who deserves one more year, knows club and is legend.
Possibly because high-pressure possession football works only with combined pressure from the midfielders and the defenders. It wasn't AVB's high-line that lost us games, it was the failure to implement the whole package.
Bingo well played sir. ACB was naive, figured he could change the world in six months. He should have implemented changes in style over a sustained period. Oh and not telling half the team they were shite would have helped as well.
Pretty sure Pep is more experienced and more versatile then ppl give him credit for.
Just reading through some of these posts and i can guarantee i can pick the Chelsea "supporters" that started following us in the last year or so. What a bunch of pathetic pricks we have on this forum! Make Terry and Lampard redundant? WTF??? IS this cunt for real?? There are only so many things i can say to a twat like this.. FUCK OFF and go support Barcelona! If you want us to play like them, then you should have no problem jumping ship. And take the cunts that agree with you too..
