Guardiola just won his 3rd championship of the season.

Good job.


But where is the competition?

...FA cup final, not worth watching.
Sensible tv stations decided not carry it as they know the outcome is a forgone conclusion.
Btw, who won :???: :???:

Followers of the Bundesliga can tell us whether Pep revolutionised the game there....


These opinions are a problem sometimes.
If we remember correctly, before Pep arrived in Bundesliga, Bayern was getting into CL finals regularly and we even witnessed an all Bundesliga final Bayern vs Dortmund.
From the time of his arrival there we have not seen any of that, and Bayern has been struggling in CL. By the looks of things we won't be seeing any all German CL final soon.
And other people have some interesting opinions about his long term impact https://www.google.com/amp/s/talksport. ... iegel/amp/

:biggrin:


well, Guardiola was responsible for Germany winning the WC - possession football
before he arrived, Germany had struggled in international tournaments

..or that's what we've been told

If 6 of the starting 11 wasn’t from his squad, it would be easier to say he didn’t have a significant effect. Piece of unsolicited advice. Fighting excellence is futile. It is much easier to learn from it and appreciate it. :idea: But it has become increasingly clear that your height challenges parallel your mental ones.

Pep is very much part of the changes we see in English football. I did not want to give him any credit before but it is what it is. Foreign managers are changing the EPL and the money is there for them to buy players.

what are thee changes, please and thank you

3 at the back?
5 at the back?
passing from the back?
high press?

before Guardiola came to England, EPL was just kick-and-rush, correct?

but you still have not answer the Q.
WHAT HAS HE REVOLUTIONIZED IN THE LEAGUE??

In summary, prior to Guardiola:
1. GK's in England did not play the ball from the back
2. Possession from the back was unheard of
3. Relentless pressing was not done

There's nothing revolutionary about 93 points in a 1st season. Borinho had 95 in his 1st.

you keep spinning your wheels

1. Pep has changed what is required to win the league
2. IIRC, a team needs maximum points to win the league
3. On the flip side, Mourinho, who had 95 points previously, did not revolutionize the league by collecting_maximum_points

SAF - treble. did that revolutionize the league?

VAR was not used in the Swansea game because the match was played at a non Premier League ground

City win from an offside goal

Guardiola is a good coach but I don't see anything revolutionary about him at all. Whether in the EPL or Champions League

So is it money or the coaches that is revolutionising the football?

Fulham spent money, a pretty penny and threw a plethora of coaches into the cocktail. Hardly Sex on the Beach, more like Titus Bramble breaking in through the black door and hiding in the bedroom closet.

Many players and managers are part of the changes happening in EPL, it's not all about one man as this thread threatens to do. :biggrin:
