    Half the player too. Lemar is the much smarter player.

    Stone at Everton was riddled with mistakes when he came to a City again criticism about being riddled with mistakes

    Pep make him one of best central defenders in the Premier League

    he didn't make the prices
    Sterling was always going to improve. Its just Peps style fits him well. And their defense rarely gets tested. Its their dominating midfield that does all the work. Look how huge their posession is, yet they still concede a goal almost every week. In the end their defense is just as bad as anybodies if you take into account they rarely actually have to defend.

    Doubt they really know what they are talking about. If they were all that smart why do so few of them make it as managers themselves? Look how much bs some ex-players now pundits talk all the time and you know many have not more insight to the game than most of us.

    Pep has one overall tactic he will never change. His ingame changes are often just minor positional ones. But saying he is a tactical genius is just over the top. If he was that great he would have adapted when playing against Barca and Real in the CL when he managed Bayern Munich. Yet he sticked to his philosophy and got schooled.

    Roman is trigger happy. There will be no continuity at Chelsea. That's why I reckon we're on course to succeed, Klopp is a long-termist whilst Pep and the Special Once aren't.

    Guardiola may build a good side, but he's not a long termist. So forget the idea of a dynasty.

    Didn't he recently state that he didn't like to stick around for to long, as it becomes a lot more difficult to motivate the players?

    This is usually the case, I would have to agree. Rare are the managers that stick around and see consistent success. The same rule can be said for players. Managers regularly talk about the need to bring new players in, to freshen things up.

    It all depends on the manager to be honest. Some go for instant success, get it, get bored and walk away. Some are in it for the long haul, go for the slow long term build and succeed that way. I think we've got the latter.

    Klopp is in it for the long haul, he's a slow builder and when he gets it right, expect fireworks because nothing will stop him. He's not far off either.

    Seems likely. I reckon Gerrard is serving the same apprenticeship Sir Bob did.

    A fair bit of talk about Sanchez to Utd.

    I canít see the point in it for him, but it would be a hell of a signing for them. I hope to **** it never happens.

    Makes a lot of sense for Arsenal too, not good news. I still can’t imagine Sanchez wanting anything to do with it, though.

    If he chooses Mourinho over Guardiola he's an idiot.
    Just my opinion.

    I know you probably think that's an easy decision, but let me tell you I've been to Barcelona and it's quite nice too.

    No chance. He's off to PSG at some stage, probably after they sack Maureen for starting a riot in an empty room.

    Sanchez to United being reported as done. And after Arsenal said they wouldn't be selling to United again after Van Persie? Can it get any more worse for Arsenal?

    Embarrassing stuff from Arsenal if true, wtf are they thinking?

    I can’t get my head around keeping him so deep into his contract only to sell him at the last minute, and to a direct rival- it’s a classic '6 pointer’ as they say.
