A thoroughly average season.

Imagine actually being blown away in the CL and losing to a League One side in the FA Cup.

He'll always have next season.

This, the guy can't justify his less then stellar results when you invest half a billion pounds into a team.

Conte managed to win it in his 1st year, without big investment...

Destroying the best league in the world is apparently not much of an achievement. Hmm

I've been saying that Guardiola is overrated for years....ppl just jumping off the train
Beating up the minnows in England doesn't impress me.....especially with the type of spending that he did.

The day Guardiola parted ways with a team containing Messi, is the day he ceased becoming a credible threat in the CL.

Why are you insulting Allegri?

At least the guy got to CL finals twice, whilst Pep can't even get to semi-finals

Pep Machine 17/18 - Champion's Edition



What a season! Somewhat let down by the last two weeks, but still a lot of promise shown at the start of this new Pep Era in the Premier League.

Of course I'm pleased with seeing the most dominant domestic football played in Great Britain ever, the numerous records being shattered across divisions, etc. But what I am most happy about is that Pep has found a solid working core for this Machine, and they are mostly young and full of sprite (replacing D. Silva and Fernandinho is very crucial). These young starlets can only improve under the greatest footballing mind of the 21st century, and I am excited to see what they can do with another pre-season of footballing masterclasses with Pep.

My biggest concern with the Pep Machine is that the innovation and experimentation has somewhat stalled in the recent past, but maybe Pep just wanted to play it safe and secure the league as soon as possible. I hope that we will see more genius craziness from the Absolute Mad Man in the future, as the players become more comfortable with him.

Shoutouts to my fellow Pepholics: Massaro, Fellaini and Huge Anus, I got too busy to continue with the Pep Machine posts later on the season, but I will make an even bigger effort next season to support our Lord and Saviour.

Messi's best seasons were while Pep was at Barca (4 seasons).. since he left Messi has only scored 5 goals from the Q/F onwards

With Pep, Barca made it to 2 Finals and 2 semis... what's their record after he left (6 seasons)... 1 Final, 1 semi and the rest were Q/F

Pep is still a top UCL coach... The fact he hasnt made it to a Final after 5 seasons means nada. Carlo had to wait 7 seasons... Huynckes had to wait almost 2 decades. Capello never made it back to a final after 95 ... Even LVG went 15 years before making it back to a final. And i rate all of these coaches

When i think about it... it's fucking shocking Capello never made it back, consdiering the squads he went onto manage. But that's the UCL.

Embrace Pep and his football. One day he will be managing Brazil

The heck is wrong with you?
Barca still won without Pep. They STILL WON THE FUCKING CHAMPIONS LEAGUE!
And Carlo moved to other clubs and still won the CL and still won leagues without spending a bajillion dollars

I bet that Allegri would win CL (and championship) with this City team and budget... and I don't even like or rate Allegri that high.

But real was just stronger. Too strong. Until cronnie retires, they are likely to keep winning. They are the greatest ever team in the history of football. Hands down. We will get there eventually.

Yeah, having Matri as CF and 34 y.o. Evra as LB really gave them an edge.
