I can only imagine if Pep got relegated and Allegri won the title.

Pep has been shit. It's no surprise. The only surprise was that Conte started poorly and Pep well.
It wasn't a jab though, I'm giving Conte the props he deserves. I just wish he wasn't an idealistic dumbass with Italy picking the worst squad in fucking decades. Then gets praised for overachieving

But anyways this was expected. For the first time in his coaching career, Guardiola had to work with a limited amount of talent and failed hard. He's proved that he's no Simeone or Conte in terms of getting the best out of what little he has.
But Citys squad is amazing. It's without a doubt the top 3 best squads in PL and top 6-7 in the world. The issue is it isn't Peps player preference. At Bayern it was so stacked he had all the attributes he needed for any tactic. The only thing he needed was a bit of luck. It took him like a month to solidify his philosophy. He STILL hasn't done that with City. The question is why.

Is it bad personell? Is it a stagnation in tactics? Is it adapting to a league with vastly different characteristics and failing?

I'll go with bad personel for his tactics. He's not a mediocre coach but at this point I can't say he's the best coach in the world
