What Has Gone Wrong for Pep Guardiola at Man City?

  • Publisert Måned siden

    Runtime: 14:18

    In the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons, Manchester City won two consecutive Premier League titles, amassing a remarkable 198 points in the process. Such an achievement makes the Citizens one of the finest football teams we have ever seen in the English game, but as Pep Guardiola enters his fifth season at the Etihad - the first time he has ever spent that long at a single club - some warning lights are flashing.
    In this short opinion piece, HITC Sevens takes a look at some of Guardiola and Man City's recent struggles, what they can be attributed to, and what the future could hold for the blue side of Manchester.

I agree that we have to look *really* closely at Rodri and how the midfield defends. There is much focus on the defenders, but a lot of those back line errors were caused by midfield errors. In a couple of those goals they gave up to Leicester, the midfielders looked just plain lost. Rodri is a quality player, and I do not disrespect him at all, but he is not offering the kind of defensive effort and quick good defensive decisions this Man City system requires. Brilliant player on the wrong team? The failing of Guardiola is he does not seem to know how to build good defenses, at least, his effort is no better than simple trial and error. Nor does he seem to be able to mold players to become better at their defensive duties. Since he cannot teach players to defend better, trial and error can be very painful. To a significant degree, Pep lucked out to have Fernandinho and Kompany on his squad when he arrived. It is luck because Guardiola does not like to recruit players like them -- he has "better" ideas. If they were not already on the team when Pep arrived, the miracle century probably would not have happened. Heck, I doubt Pep would have even won either of those two titles. I do believe Guardiola will eventually keep plugging in expensive defenders until he gets a back line that is solid enough. But does he have the CDM he needs? I do not know. The real problem is I am not sure Guardiola knows.

Player fatigue and poor player replacement is a pretty obvious one, but one thing I never ever considered is the fatigue managers face, especially one as demanding as pepp. I have a feeling this is his last session at city. After a quick break, I think he should try his hand in Italy, but with someone like Milan (not Juve as they're already so successful and not inter either who I'm not a fan of).

The referees have also gotten a better look at their tactical fouls. At the beginning of last season, they were earning yellows at twice the rate of the previous two seasons. And then Laporte got injured (which some City fans blame on failing to tactical foul more quickly).

The problem with City is their Arab owner.....too much money proves you cannot buy success. Take sterling as an example, he left Liverpool for the money and he’s not half the player he was, vastly overrated. Liverpool haven’t spent anything as near as city yet they totally embarrassed city last season and so far this season they’re well ahead of them yet again and you wonder why city cannot fill their own stadium 🙄. Pep v Klopp ? No contest, Klopp has a personality and can manage people far better.

Poor Pep & Man City. They lost Kompany but didn't replace him! Why does everyone push this narrative? Didn't they already have enough? They had to make do with a £57m Laporte, a £32m Otamendi, a £50m Stones and a £32m Fernandinho (granted he's normally a centre mid) as well as a La Masia trained Garcia (for free). I feel sorry for Pep, City totally didn't spend any money on centre back! While LFC won the Champions League and Premier League with VVD for £75m, their other centre backs are a £3.5m Gomez, a free Matip from Schalke and a calamitous Lovren who did cost £20m to be fair. Either LFC strike gold everytime at centre back... or the coaching of centre backs is better.

I don't think this is really a crysis, for me it's just the end of a cycle. Right now, the man city board will have to choose wther they start a new project with a new manager or they mantain Pep and allow him to re structurate the team. In my opinion they should keep Pep and concentrate on keep improving the team and maybe let go some players that may be causing trouble or that are not having good enough performances, since he's just the best manager they could have right now

Managers don't always have total control over the transfers at their club so it is debatable if Pep is mainly at fault for this but prior to Dias they have spent over £400m on defenders. To have spent that much money and have a defence that turns to mush when one player is out injured is insane. The fact that until this summer he would rather play their aging DM at cb over one of their £30-50m centre backs is astonishing

I can hardly disagree, like the poster below, with any of this. However, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel. From what I have seen so far, Torres, in particular and Ake are excellent players. Ake has fitted in well and Torres looks as if he has been at City for years. He is just the player to unlock parked bus defences. City do not really have any of those except Aguero who is injured. So that's another thing to look forward to. And the addition of Dias looks shrewd, a leader and 19 caps for Portugal at 23. I think though that one of the main problems is Guardiola. His insistence on swamping other teams is ok when playing "lesser" teams but does not work when playing top teams. If the midfield and defence are bypassed, good strikers will score because the team has insufficient cover at the back. Vardy and Aubameyang showed this. He needs to reign the team in and wait for the opposition to come out when it becomes clear that they are maintaining a low block. Gung Ho will not do.
