    Stoichkov was shit in his 2nd spell at Barca.
    Van Gaal was sacked after 3 Months in his 2nd spell (in the first spell he won 2 La Ligas in 3 years).

    People would expect too much from Pep.
    1. if he would try to replicate his style from 2011, he would fail since current players are shit
    2. if he would try something new, people would say: wtf is this? We need to go back to our roots, aka 2011

    Also, in 2008, he had Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Puyol, Valdes who were established players and in their primes.
    All from La Masia.
    Ok, maybe he "invented" Busi and Pedro.

    But what to do today?
    Back then he had 5 Goats, today he has Roberto, Riki and Alena.
    So, he can't do any wonders with La Masia.

    People would expect that he would get rid of oldies.
    But who would play? Dumbele, Riki, Alena and Braithwaite?

    If he would return, imo, 90% of people would be disappointed and they would ruin their picture of a perfect Pep.
    1. no superstars after Messi
    2. no La Masia talents
    3. and barely 1 and a half playable youngster (Frenkie and Arthur) where both play at the same position, lol

    Unless if a board can magically produce 800 Millions for transfers, Barca is really not a fun place to be in the future.
    And Pep is used to coach the richest teams in the world.

    Yes definitely, he is the only coach who has the guts/authority to get rid of aging seniors and start a new project.
    I have a bad feeling that whenever a lesbian looks at me they think “That’s why I’m not a heterosexual”.

    Zidane came back and he probably had more to lose than Guardiola after his three CL titles. He came into a tough situation.

    Nah, Guardiola's 09-11 reign (3LL, 2 CL, CL SF) is widely regarded as one of the best club sides ever along with Sacchi's Milan and Cruyff's Ajax. Di Stefano's Real too if you really want to go back. ZZ went perfect in the CL but his team didn't have that aura around them throughout. They had it in 16/17.

    Pep has way more to lose than ZZ did. ZZ also had a much greater legacy as a player. Even outside of coaching, he's one of the all time greats.

    I will also add that in comparison to ZZ, Pep has shown himself to be a coward in team selection so far. So, all this is probably a moot point.
