Man City along with Liverpool are two sides of immense quality managed by two magnificent managers and backed by owners who want success. This is the blueprint every club seeks.Money at City is readily available, to a lesser degree at Liverpool, however supporters there at Anfield are brought up on success. It is expected and delivered.As regards Wednesday, City can destroy any team domestically, and I fear this. Yes, we got a deserved draw at Stamford Bridge, and the boys should be up for it. Alas, how many games previously should the boys have been up for it and not delivered. I fear for Wednesday night. City are hurting. They just thumped Newcastle without breaking sweat, and they will want to re affirm their dominance domestically. Then coming up we take on that other footballing megalith at Anfield! We will see!

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally, I'm expecting a close game, one way or another. Wolves do well against City as a rule, even Gary Neville is saying don't take this one for granted.
Recent poor form aside Wolves are a tough team to play against as many 'top teams' will testify. I'm going for another draw 1-1.

I don't rate Pep tbh without a unlimited chequebook he is average.
I'd like to see him prove me wrong oneday and do it at a club with hardly any money.
Klopp on the otherhand is the real deal hasn't spent big.
Just my 2am ramblings lol.

Pep has failed consistently to repeat his incredible trophy haul at ‘Barca. No Champions League wins at Bayern Munich or Man City. Sure domestically he gets results, but the clubs he’s managed can outbid the clubs in the same league and offer astronomical wages.
I believe his success at ‘Barca is down to inheriting some of the most talented players the game has ever witnessed (Messi, Xavi, Inesta etc.)

Face it, Man City are the PSG of England.

I think a lot of these Managers do well thanks to having a certain group of players that just click, whether by luck or design.
Brian Clough was successful at Forest because he took the nucleus of the Derby team that did well for him. Without those players at Leeds, bang average imo.
To be fair I think Klopp has built the team at Liverpool though.
In truth I suppose Pep has at City but only by being able to literally cherry pick anyone he wanted with £££'s.
Not sure how an average size club with a 50k stadium can achieve this level of spending. Questions were being asked but I've not heard the outcome.

Personally, I think Pep is behind Klopp, Mourinho and Conte and even Ancelotti. Pep has always managed the team with the most money and at the top of their domestic league whereas the other 4 have a proven track record of building teams.

I see the bbc have a story on Gerrard possibly disrupting the title fight as villa have got to play Man City and Liverpool. Funny, there doesn’t seem to be any mention that Bruno’s wolves have could also have a say in the title. I think we need to win tomorrow to have any hope of catching West Ham, I’m feeling positive but also hoping the luck is on our side.

Are you seriously saying that Clough wasn't up to much longmynd?
One of the best manager's ever and his Leeds tenure was without his right hand man Peter Taylor,who was with him at Derby and forest who against the odds won the league, and forest two European cups.
Pep has city playing some of the best football you can witness and you,jas and you say he's overated?
So if Bruno gets the bullet and peps available you'd say no?
I don't think so ?

10 May 2022 14:08:31
Yep, that's exactly what I'm saying bigcheese68. All of these managers, including Clough at Forest, have been seriously backed financially to get the players they want/need to win stuff.
In recent times Klopp has probably achieved the most with the least, so to speak.
Graham Potter is doing a great job at Brighton but they won't win the league or play in Europe because he doesn't have the money. That's the difference, would City or Chelsea be where they are/have been without pots of money to spend?

10 May 2022 14:58:44
I wouldn't say Clough was the biggest spender in the transfer market at the time long,ok he paid the first £1m for Francis, but a lot of his signings were low fees.
I agree that city and Chelsea wouldn't be anywhere near the summit of the game without the money through at them, and we along with potter at Brighton and Moyes at West ham, have done well to get within touching distance of today's big 6, let's hope fosun can make the next step so we can challenge them.

10 May 2022 17:24:50
bigcheese68, can you please confirm exactly where in my post I have said that Pep is over rated. What I have said is that I think Klopp, Conte, Mourinho and Ancelotti were better. The reason? Pep has managed 3 clubs in his career. 1st Barcelona who had just won La Liga and Champions League so we're probably the best club in the world but definitely the best club in Spain. He had the biggest budget and won everything. He then went to Bayern Munich who were reigning European Champions. He failed to win Champions League but easily won the league 3 years in a row with a budget 3 times bigger than their nearest rivals. He then comes to Man City who again are reigning Champions of the PL but fails to win the CL however the domestic league is no issue.

Now, Mourinho built the Porto team from scratch as well as Chelsea and then Inter Milan (Ending Juves dominance) he has also won the CL with 2 unfancied, non big spending teams. Conte built Juventus up from the ruins of the relegated team. Yes he had money to spend but they started off in the equivalent of our Championship. Klopp has built Liverpool from also rans into a team that is currently fighting for the Quadruple and Ancelotti has become the 1st manager to win domestic leagues in the top 5 leagues in Europe.

But again I ask you to confirm where I said Pep is over rated.

Clough was in different times different rules and different manager styles, you played for him, because of him. The old chestnut of being the best manager England never had because he did things his way and not that of the establishment. He wouldn't last a day into days game with the pampered high waged and overrated showboating. By that I mean he'd walk away from signing the divas of today. Could you see dave mckay playing within todays restrictions? So clough yes an excellent manager in his own time and style.

10 May 2022 18:51:44
You may not have written that he is overated but the insinuation is there.
You don't think he's built probably the best team in the premier league era?
Kloop,Mouriniho,Conte and Ancelloti have spent a fortune also, and would argue none of the team's they have built play consistently as good a football as city.
Peps Barcelona played Man Utd off the park and Ferguson had spent on that team.
Only my opinion, but like I said earlier,if the five of em were out of work I'd choose pep over the rest if we had the chance.

10 May 2022 19:44:48
bigcheese68, I can confirm that I do think Pep is an outstanding manager but I think the others are better. As for your 'You wouldn't have him at Wolves' comment, it will only happen if we were top of the league.

There is a reason why Pep is only linked to one other club job, which is PSG. He can maintain a team at the very top of their respective league but he cannot build a team from almost good enough to being the best.

10 May 2022 20:41:16
I wouldn't have said city were the best when he took over.
I would say that the squad he has assembled since arriving at city is a little bit better than almost Jas.
For the record I rate Ancelloti, but he spent a fortune at Everton and things went badly there.

11 May 2022 09:42:33
All well and good giving a manager money to spend. If they spend it wisely all well and good. I wiuld venture to suggest that in the premier league today that is the key attribute needed to be a top manager. Spend your budget well no matter how much you are given. If that is about winning the league great but equally keeping a mid table team in the division could be termed succes, its all a bit subjective really.

11 May 2022 09:55:10
I agree arddunby, look at the money Man Utd have blown chasing the league since Ferguson left, and they are no better off than us really this season.
