Arsenal have for some time been linked with the former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, especially during the dark days when a big slice of the Arsenal support was sick and tired of Arsene Wenger and blamed the Frenchman for the club´s struggles in the transfer market and on the football pitch.
Now, however, we are generally better disposed towards Le Prof, as he has started to make big signings and the team has shown great improvement. A first major trophy in nine years has certainly not done the boss any harm either. But there are still regular Arsenal transfer rumours that suggest the Spaniard could be the man to take over the hot seat when Wenger does relinquish it.
But after a pretty pathetic attempt to retain the Premier League title and improve on their poor Champions League record, it looks like Man City will be saying goodbye to Manuel Pellegrini and a Metro report claims that Guardiola has agreed to take over. If this is true it will upset some Gooners but I think we may have dodged a bullet.
If you did not see Pep´s former club Barcelona beat his current club Bayern Munich this week then you might not understand why, but the game highlighted the Spaniard´s stubborn refusal to alter his possession based style of play and they paid a big price. Wenger was like that as well but is now willing to change his tactics when it is needed. Do we really want to go back to the days of tippy tappy football that looks nice but does not get results?
Let Man City have him I say. What do you think?
