    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Back tracking on his words about start of an end of his coaching career. Maybe he returns here after all.

    He was fantastic when he was here but he's clearly burning out.

    He should have taken another one year hiatus after Bayern. Instead he jumped into a new league and a lesser team in City. In the end City players are just a bunch of mercenaries. There are is no home grown spine of great players like Barca and Bayern. There is no real tradition at City.

    He avoids conflict and is over sensitive. He is also too stubborn about his way of football. Too set in his ways.

    If Guardiola wants a break from managing elite football, he will do rest and leisure. I can't see him simply, going to do something else unrelated to football or office job. If Guardiola wants to work but not be an elite football head manager then my guess would be coming back to FC Barcelona to help La Masia in years down the track.
    Pass + Passing + Passing
    (16+1+19+19) + (16+1+19+19+ 9+14+7) + (16+1+19+19+9+14+7) = 225
    Xavi + Iniesta + Laudrup
    (24+1+22+9) + (9+14+9+5+19+20+1) + (12+1+21+4+18+21+16) = 226

    If what he said is true, and I do not doubt it one bit, Pep is not exactly the saint that people here want to make him out to be, in fact he's quite opposite!

    Time to get back to Barca, so Messi can bail him out for a few more seasons.

    Overrated coach, plays players out of position and expects players to adapt to him instead of adapting to his players

    He did well here because his style of play was suited to our players but he has tried to make the same style work at other clubs even when it's a bad idea

    Also I don't know why he took the city job. It was an ageing squad on a downward cycle, with unmotivated players. he picked the worst timing to take over.
