Mase, I don't usually respond to your threads or posts but on this occasion, I make an exception. Who the fuck are you trying to kid? You have a go at Piccs by telling him that you are merely posing a simple question.....absolute bollox and you well know it.
Fair question my arse!!!!! You have already statedon another thread that you "Hate Pep" so why not at least be honest with your agenda to have a dig.
Beyond that, It is as stupid a thread that has been posted on here and for the benefit of others drawn into your nonsense, here's why.
What Pellers did was truly amazing in his first season and nobody should try and take that away from him.
But the circumstances of the two managers are totally different. Pellers inherited a largely settled squad that retained most of the title winning side of Mancini. The subsequent failures of that team were due to their refusal to playfor him, particularly in the Wigan cup final. We palyed some magnificent football and enjoyed some terrific results.
Pep inherited much of the same squad, the oldest in the Prem, that needed a complete overhaul, which as yet remains unfinished. The rags, Liverpool and others have spent £Billions attempting to rebuild and during that time they dropped out of the limelight. Player and managers alike in and out.
This is Pep's 2nd season, and he himself has never said he was the greatest, that crown was attributed to him by pundits and the main strem media. Pep himself only ever said hewas here to learn.
We now have a team running away with the League containing many kids and players who are strangers to the rigours of the Prem in their 1st season. We have also won the League Cup and (maybe until later today) we are still in the CL.
Personally I am gutted, hurt and extremely angry about the events of this last week, but though I am emotionally devasted, rationally I am more than satisfied.
At the end of Pellers reign, we had 2 trophies and a squad on the wane needing a rebuild. (Not Pellers fault)
Today, we have 2 trophies, not quite out of a third, and a sqaud that with a tweek here and there will could and should take us forward for years to come. Not only that, we have also given 6 of our own kids some game time which is something missing from City for many years.
Two great managers, two great seasons, and if your stated hatred of Pep is so embedded in you, I take it that you won't be cheering as Kompany lifts the Prem trophy...as it is only what you would have expected.
I KNOW THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU UNDERSTOOD WHAT YOU THINK I WROTE, BUT I AM NOT SURE YOU REALISE THAT WHAT YOU READ IS NOT WHAT I MEANT
