I know the game has moved on but the likes of SAF and Arsène were elite because the tactical side of their teams were fairly straightforward and players had a lot more freedom which is what a player like Grealish needs.
Pep’s dominance is straight from the chequebook similar to Mourinho.
Being able to buy the players is one thing. Actually controlling so many big personalities and so many world class players on massive wages is another thing.
Yes, Mikel has absolutely taken all of Pep's worst traits.Pep’s main issue is he always over complicates things. I remember some Bayern fans complaining about that when he was there. Got a feeling he’ll misuse Grealish and he won’t be as good as everyone is expecting.
Arteta learnt that skill from his Sensei as it’s one of his key traits too.
I think Perez will offer himself to Raiola if that's what it takes to get Haaland to Madrid. He has to do something. Few in football if any have had a worse last few months.Not worried about Villa packing in decent attacker name after decent attacker name, none of them are Grealish, none of them look like they can become another Grealish for them. Think we're clear, at least this season. Expecting Bailey in particular to disappoint.
Chelsea throwing money on Lukaku is lovely too, unfortunately for everyone it'll bring United into the mix as the logical destination for Haaland, as some were discussing some pages ago.
