True. Itís a big issue for them for sure.

But...

John Stones is garbage.

Anything that fucks with Josep's plans is good. The inability to rotate as much will hamper them

No injury to Stones might have made him consider continuing with that disasterous partnership between Stones & Otamendi

Fernandinho is a serial fouler, he is always sticking his foot in. I see him giving away a lot of penalties and free kicks just outside the area.

Yes he is and so is Bernardo but look at how many times they actually get booked in a season

They both get away with murder for me so wouldnt pin my hopes on this

They normal offend high up the pitch, which in turn gives a free kick but rarely a booking. This is one of Pep’s main spoiling tactics

For example, when Lucas was playing for us he would repeatably offend high up the pitch and rarely get penalised. However, around the last third of the pitch he was always giving away free kicks.

I think, at some point he would've gone with Stones and Fernandinho maybe, so Otamendi and Fernandinho is better.

If Fernandinho is playing then surely Watford should approach the game with a view to diving around their area. Set pieces, big men, job done. Delefeu must like a dive?

Papers reporting that Guardiola's wife is moving back to Barcelona, but Pep is going to stay until the end of his contract.

Assuming Guardiola leaves at the end of this season, who would City want as their next manager?... who could they realistically get?

Seem to remember a wave of social media twats getting offended by that product's image a few years ago, chocolate coated peanuts IIRC, until it was pointed out that the white chocolate version features a white version of the same figure.
Fully expect the same backlash/post deletes etc etc

The article about Guardiola’s wife - says she’s only moving back to Barcelona temporarily, 3 months. She regularly commutes back and forth for her businesses.

I think that his contract is until 2021 so, I guess he has another year after this one, unless UEFA do them for FFP and he leaves because of that.

If he were to leave I would love to see them bring in Roy Hodgson , unfortunately I don't see that happening. I guess they would be looking to Europe, not sure who though.

I could see Arteta getting the Man City job. He could have pushed for the Arsenal gig last year but didn't. I wonder is he being trained for it in-situ right now. In the same way as the Barcelona under Bergestein et al used to promote from within at the Nou Camp.

Either way, I just hope that Jurgen stays 3 or 4 seasons after Pep fucks off. Will be domination.

I really hope this doesn’t blow over- you’d think clubs/players would get PR managers to approve tweets etc. I think the tweet he posted after could be the straw that breaks the camels back- instead of coming back with an apology, he’s like “jeez can’t even make a joke”, doesn’t do his image any good.. this was the tweet I found hard to believe- whatever about the players not having PR managers, but you’d think that straight away someone from the club’s legal/HR/PR would be on the phone to him saying right we’re preparing a statement for you, don’t post anything til you hear back...

I think back to the Suarez incident, dalglish being asked awkward questions in his interviews etc- i’ll Be looking forward to seeing how pep deals with this.. also I’d love if someone springs the question to sterling in a post match interview or that- Surely he has offended a lot of his teammates with this. Would be hard for Sterling to pass it off as harmless joke, after all (good work) he has done for the anti-racism in football movement.

I mean the only way I compared it to Suarez, is that he’s put his manager in an awkward position, where he’ll have to answer difficult questions.

I’m not at all offended by it, but disagree that no one can be offended if Mendy is cool with it. It’s not about whether mendy was offended or not- it’s about breaching acceptable standards.

Maybe mendy isnt offended cos he's too thick to see the wider implications but that still doesnt excuse silva.
