He is building for the future and also trying to deliver immediately using existing players.
Expecting him to deliver this season is outrageous.
He should be judged on season 3 (maybe season 2 if he gets the targets he wants).
The future is the incredible young talent we have, Brown, Sterling, Sane, Nacho, Jesus, Monero, Gundogan, etc....
Immediate delivery using YaYa, Kolorov, Clichy, Fern2, Sagna, Vinny, Zabba, etc...
Long term he will deliver IMO.
Short term he may not.
He is not a magician and yet we are fantastic going forward but not clinical yet and our defence is leaky as a sieve.
Give him time. Give the club time to level the playing field (in the boardroom).
The future is Sky Blue.
Yes it was always going to take time. I dont 'expect' to win the league this season, or even anything. If anybody actually believes the UEFA will allow us win the CL they need a word with themselves. I think we will be in a much better place this time next year.
One thing isnt peps contract 3 years? presumably he will extend, but for some reason he doesn't strike me as a man who will hang around long term, ie > 5 years.
