I'm disappointed, if Pellers (a pretty much unheard of Manager in the grand scheme of things, who hadn't managed in Europe) can come in a do what he did in his first season I cannot see how the best manager on the planet can be given any grace for what he has done in his first year.
In hindsight Pellers first year was epic!
This. I don't think anyone is asking for the treble. But we can't keep saying "it's a project", "it'll take time" - the same people were saying how Pep would come in and that would be it, things would change. The fact is our defence is still shaky (I think it shows how poor everyone else's defence is that we're 4th best in the league) and we're still replying on Mancini's players to get us through games on the whole - Silva, Yaya, Aguero.
If Pep had come in and said, "you know what, my plan A might not work over here, we might not have the players to do it, it'll take time, there needs to be a plan B" then fair enough. But he's an arrogant man that thinks his way is best and even when he's wrong he's right. Our defence can't play those triangles. It's obvious. Wednesday night there were chances for us to attack Monaco but we kept going back to mess about with it. That comes from Pep.
If he's not prepared to have a plan B then I'm not prepared to give him the time of day.
Mancini came in and the first thing he did was shore the defence up. We were getting 1-0 wins until the defence was solid. Pep doesn't seem to recognise that and just wants to take the KK approach and as long as they're getting 3 we'll get 4. And Pep's had, what, four years to plan for this?! That doesn't work against the good teams because nine times out of ten their defence is good. We were lucky that Monaco have a turd defence and goalkeeper to get five in the first leg.
I just can't warm to the guy at all.
