    That's wrong. Could seem that way if you only look at trophies. Barca played best football in the world under Cruyff, had the best team under Robson, only few years afterwards played some of the best football under Van Gaal. Then there was a black hole of 5 years of turmoil much because of Gaspart.

    We were always up there with the best and I enjoyed Barca football under all those coaches.

    I didn't say we never played great football or didn't have good teams before. But the success Rijkaard got us laid foundation for our present aura where we are the first destination for the best players

    Actually Van Gaal laid foundations for Rijkaard.

    You can't just pluck things out like that.

    I'm not sure I agree that Lucho was under more pressure. I'm interested to hear why you think so, however.

    Catalan, ball boy, La Masia product, Senior team player, 1st CL cup winner for club, Coached a 4th division cantera side to promotion in one season, brought a few of those 4th division players with him to the senior team and created the most successful, dominating and joyful version of Barcelona the club or football has ever seen.

    No one will better what he has contributed to the club, his legacy is secure and will live on longer than most of us will be alive. No one is more Blaugrana than Pep

    The cult level admiration that Pep enjoys from the supposed Barcelona fans here is even more than the guy himself has for Barcelona!

    No denying that he is a great manager but he is not the world beater that people here make him out to be. You know what makes sure he never becomes that world beater? It is his blind love towards his philosophy and refusal to accept the existence any other, the very same one that brought him his success btw!!

    Pep
    Lucho
    Rjikaard
    Tito
    Valverde
    Tata

    Tito better than Valverde by a mile! Tito has knack for tactical changes which Valverde can only dream of

    Lucho definitely better than Rjikaard - Both had the support of a strong team but Lucho had better control on the superstars! I mean he kicked even Pique's arse for crying out loud

    It's true for every manager tho, you see Mou change his philosophy ? Maybe they tweak some part of it ( as Pep himself said he did some minor changes to get adapted in EPL ) but the core is always there and never change. I'd say it's quite impossible for a manager to change his philosophy especially when you're at top league and being expected to delivery trophies every season.

    The fundation for our present greatness was laid by non other than Johan Cruyff, he is 80-90% responsible for everything good that has happened to this club the last 30 years, either directly or indirectly. Barcelona has always been an elite club in terms of attracting star players, and the club Rijkaard came to was a european power house even though we had no Messi back then, CC win 1989, CC final 1991, EC win 1992, EC final 1994, UC semi 1996, CC win 1997, UC semi 2001, EC semi 2003.

    Dude i was comparing Rijkaard to Lucho. How did Cruyff come into the discussion? We were talking about recent managers.
